Woman working out to get toned abs | Riopelle Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center

There’s no denying that the results of hardcore dieting and rigorous workouts are impressive. But, for a lot of people, it feels like they’re torturing themselves trying to get sculpted, toned abs, and firm backside. With the help of Emsculpt at Riopelle Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, you can take the torture out of getting tone!

This new non-invasive body sculpting has been Cleared by the FDA since late 2018.  It is a body contouring treatment that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic energy to stimulate the type of supramaximal contractions that we humans are not able to achieve voluntarily. An Emsculpt treatment has helped improve abdominal muscle tone, while strengthening and firming those muscles. It can also help strengthen, tone, and firm the buttocks.

Emsculpt is a new category of non-surgical device. The energy it uses is magnetic fields, similar to an MRI machine. This non-invasive high intensity focused technology is able to produce 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions in just 30 minutes.

Basically, as the user lies still, their body is experiencing the effects of 20,000 crunches or squats. To compare, you can activate about 50 percent of that muscle group every three to five seconds when doing a real crunch or squat. Emsculpt activates 100 percent of the muscle.

The important thing to remember is that Emsculpt is not a weight loss solution. It is merely a tool to help aid in the results you get from your work out, like an extra boost. It helps you build muscles and creates a butt lift effect with no surgery or injections or fat transfer. In fact, the ideal candidate is someone who is close to their ideal body weight but just needs a little help to build muscle.
