Body contouring has been a lot of attention in the past several years, especially with numerous treatment options popping up that claim to reduce fat with cold temperatures, laser energy, radiofrequency, and fat dissolving injectables.
While these treatments swear that they’ll help improve the appearance of the abdomen and other parts of the body, the issue is that they only target fat. This isn’t a bad thing, but what happens to the ignored muscle in those areas?
BTL Aesthetics noticed this inconsistency in modern technologies and thus, Emsculpt was created. Emsculpt gives patients a way to get slimmer and toned abdomens while also lifting and firming the buttocks.
Here is more about how you can lose belly fat, define your abs, and tone your backside without the gym.
How is Emsculpt different?
Most current body contouring treatments don’t help weak muscles underneath fat and this is bad because muscle makes up 35 percent of the human body, making it an important part of our overall well-being. Emsculpt takes body sculpting to the next level by contouring your body while also increasing muscle mass.
How does Emsculpt work?
Emsculpt uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology that forces powerful muscle contractions we are unable to achieve through even the most difficult workouts. This forced movement increases fat metabolism and muscle tone for a leaner abdomen and firmer backside.
Is Emsculpt Effective?
With seven independent studies conducted with 200 participants to back it up, researchers have observed that after a series of four treatments, participants noticed:
- 19% reduction in subcutaneous fat
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 11% improvement in diastasis recti
- 96% patient satisfaction
Does Emsculpt hurt?
Emsculpt is painless – many people claim it feels very similar to what it feels like to do intense abdominal or gluteal exercises. With Emsculpt, the device is doing all the work.
And the best thing is, it doesn’t require any downtime, and normal activities, including workouts, can be resumed right away.
Who CAN’T get Emsculpt?
If you have any of these conditions, it’s best to avoid Emsculpt treatments:
- Pregnancy or breastfeeding
- Using a cardiac pacemaker or other types of implanted devices
- Have any metal rods, pins, or other metal implants
- Bleeding disorders
- If you’re under 18
Anyone can benefit from an Emsculpt treatment, but it’s best to ask your provider for more details. They should have a consultation, where they will tell figure out if it is safe for you to use or not.
