Q: What is Emsculpt®?
A: Emsculpt® is the only FDA-cleared device to help build and sculpt muscles non-invasively, in just a few 30 minute sessions, for immediate and long-term body sculpting. Emsculpt® also eliminates the fat cells creating the only 2-in-1 treatment for fat and muscle sculpting, with results being unparalleled in the industry.
Q: How does Emsculpt® work?
A: The non-invasive HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology induces 20,000 deep and powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions.
When exposed to strong contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such an extreme condition. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and sculpting your body.
Q: Is there any downtime with Emsculpt®?
A: The Emsculpt® is non-invasive and requires no recovery time or any pre/post treatment preparation. You will be able to go back to your normal activities as the lactic acid that builds up from muscle contractions, is flushed out during phase 3 of the treatment cycles.
Q: What areas does Emsculpt® treat?
A: Currently Emsculpt® treats the abdomen for muscle toning and fat reduction, as well as treats the buttocks for lifting and volumization.
Q: What results can I expect with Emsculpt®?
A: You can expect a 19-23% permanent decrease of fat in the abdomen, as well as a 16% increase in the muscle fibers. For the butt lift, you can expect a 4-4.5cm lift while also increasing the look of volume in the midsection of the buttocks.
Q: How fast will I see results?
A: You begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment, and cumulatively with each consecutive session. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments, with maximum results peaking at 3 months.
Q: How long do the results last with Emsculpt®?
A: Studies show, after the initial series of 4 sessions, results in the muscle can last a year or more, and the results with fat loss are permanent.
Q: What does the Emsculpt procedure feel like?
A: The Emsculpt® procedure feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during the treatment. It doesn’t hurt but people describe it as a pulsing feeling. We can always adjust the intensity up or down for your comfort but it should always feel completely tolerable.
Q: How long is the Emsculpt® treatment?
A: The Emsculpt® procedure is only a 30 minute treatment. It is recommended to be performed in a series 4 treatments minimum, scheduled two times a week for two weeks.
Q: Are maintenance treatments needed with Emsculpt®?
A: After your series, you don’t need maintenance sessions per say. We call them “enhancement” sessions, as they take you further than just maintaining. Some individuals choose to do quarterly, or twice a year to enhance their already great results.
Q: Am I a candidate for Emsculpt®?
A: Anyone can benefit from the Emsculpt® procedure if they want to achieve muscle tone and fat loss, that they were not able to achieve with diet, exercise, resistance training, or other non-invasive body sculpting procedures.
