What Emsculpt Can Do For You

Do you find it difficult to keep your abs toned and firmed?

Welcome to the club. For many of us, this a problem area.

And no matter how many sit-ups and crunches you do, it just doesn’t seem to help. Sure, if you could do 20,000 sit-ups it would probably make a difference. But who has the time or energy for that?

It turns out, you do. Because that’s exactly what 30 minutes of Emsculpt can do for you.

You’ll just need to simply lay back and relax.

What Is Emsculpt?

It sounds too good to be true, right?

And you may be thinking, if this Emsculpt is really a thing, then I would have heard about it.

Well, unless you’re really in the know, you may not be aware of it because it’s the newest modality to enter the world of nonsurgical procedures for fat-reduction. That means no needles, no incisions and no anesthesia.

So how does it work?

Emsculpt uses non-invasive high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to implode fat cells while simultaneously building muscle. It may sound like the stuff of infomercials, but this technology has been cleared by the FDA for the purpose of improving abdominal tone and strengthening the abdominal muscles.

It does so by triggering 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions in the course of 30 minutes. What this essentially means is that it’s able to affect the muscle in a way that would be impossible for you to do voluntarily.

The main reason those countless crunches and squats at the gym aren’t working is that you’re only activating about 50% of the muscle group you’re working every three to five seconds. But with Emsculpt, you activate 100% of the muscle 20,000 times in 30 minutes.

And all while you’re lying still.

While those coming in for Emsculpt procedures are often focusing on their abs, the device is also commonly used for the buttocks. There are even smaller attachments utilized to target the arms, thighs and calves.

It depends on your “trouble” area.


What to Expect from Emsculpt

Before we go on, it should be noted that Emsculpt is intended to be a supplement to a healthy and active lifestyle. Emsculpt is not meant to replace regular exercise and good eating habits.

In other words, it won’t eliminate a major gut that’s the result of poor lifestyle choices.

That being said, if you decide to try Emsculpt, here is what you can expect from a typical session:

  • You will relax back onto the table while a small device is strapped over your abdomen (or whatever other area you’re targeting).
  • You’ll be given tips on ways to breathe and relax through the session.
  • A trained practitioner will then deliver power to the device – starting at a low level and then working up.
  • Your muscles will begin to contract, creating a very intense vibration may feel strange at first. Your feet may also lift off the table with each contraction. (Don’t worry! This is normal.)
  • After a few contractions, the machine will switch to a tapping action in order to break down the lactic acid your muscles produce during the contractions.
  • At the end of 30 minutes, you’ll be done. And the muscles you worked will likely feel sore the next day – much like they would after an intense workout.

If you work out a lot, you will probably not need as much intensity in the session because the motor neurons in your muscles are already active and don’t require as much power to contract. But you will still see the same results.

Because the target cells in Emsculpt are muscle cells, there is an increase in muscle mass by 16% over four treatments. This creates the desirable side effect of permanent fat cell reduction by 19%.

After your initial session, it’s recommended you complete three more over a two-week period for the best results.

And that’s it. It really is THAT easy.
