Have you been looking for a non-invasive way to boost your aesthetics? With Emsculpt at Riopelle Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, you’ll be able to achieve your goals in just four 30-minute sessions. This treatment has become popular among celebrities, professional athletes, and everyday people like yourself who are seeking a safer alternative to invasive, dangerous surgeries. Here is a little bit more about what Emsculpt is, how it works, and the impressive benefits that patients have seen with this revolutionary device.
What Is Emsculpt and How Does It Work?
Emsculpt is an FDA-approved device used to strengthen muscles and breakdown fat. This cutting-edge treatment harnesses the power of HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology, which works similarly to an MRI machine, to cause muscle contractions. It produces intense contractions called “supramaximal contractions” and they create a process called lipolysis within the body. In more simple terms, the muscles and surrounding tissues in the targeted area react the same as they would during a very intense workout. As the body begins to release fatty acids, it metabolizes the dead fat cells and patients are left with stronger, leaner muscles.
What Are the Main Benefits of Emsculpt?
Emsculpt has been approved to treat buttocks and abdomen, and recently it was approved to treat thighs, calves, biceps, and triceps. Here are some of the major benefits of this innovative treatment that contributed to the treatment’s growing recognition.
Emsculpt not only encourages growth in the muscular structure within the targeted area of the body, but it also helps boost the metabolism. Many clinical studies have found that patients who have Emsculpt treatments experience a five-time increase in fat metabolism.
Because Emsculpt is a safe and completely non-invasive treatment, it has become a popular alternative to surgeries that achieve similar results such as butt implants, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. With Emsculpt, patients can have their abs and butt lifted and toned without having to go under with anesthesia or spend a long time recuperating after surgery. Patients also don’t have to worry about stitches or scars, especially since Emsculpt targets the muscle tissue directly without affecting the skin at all.
Helps Injury Recovery and Prevention
By strengthening muscle tissue, Emsculpt can help those who are healing from certain injuries. It is the perfect tool to be used alongside physical therapy to help speed up recovery times. It is also helpful for those who are kicking off a new fitness program after a patient has recovered.
Quick Sessions and Fast Results
Treatments last around 30 minutes, which makes it easy for patients who don’t have a lot of spare time throughout the day. They could make appointments over their lunch break if they wanted to. The full regimen is four treatments over a span of two to three weeks. Patients often see results immediately after their first treatment session!
No Recovery Time
One of the great benefits of Emsculpt is that there is no recovery time needed after treatment sessions. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after each session. Additionally, there is nothing patients need to do beforehand to prepare for treatment.
There is a low risk of side effects associated with Emsculpt, though this treatment is not for everyone, especially women who are pregnant or those who have any metal pieces, medical devices, or an IUD birth control implanted within their body. Emsculpt works best when a patient exercises and follows a healthy diet. It is not a replacement for either one.
