If you’re thinking about getting Emsculpt treatments, there are some important things to know about the treatment ahead of time. Emsculpt is the first device of its kind that achieves the double effect of building muscle and sculpting your figure the way strength training does.
In a single 30-minute Emsculpt treatment, your muscles receive 20,000 contractions. This can be thought of as the equivalent of 20,000 perfect sit-ups, squats, lunges, or other exercises. The result is intensely improved muscle tone and a firmer, more lean and sculpted body–the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms.
Here are some top need-to-knows about Emsculpt to help you know what to expect.
Emsculpt achieves results without penetrating the skin at all. Emsculpt is entirely safe as it involves no incisions, chemicals or injections. The Emsculpt device is placed on the target areas of your body. Once it starts, it emits high-intensity electromagnetic energy, which is directed into your muscle tissues without breaking the skin or causing any other skin or tissue trauma. This energy intensely contracts the muscle tissues, resulting in the development of more muscle mass and significant muscle growth. The treatment provides muscle contraction beyond anything a workout can achieve alone.
Emsculpt treatments feel intense, but they aren’t painful. You will feel the sensation of strong muscle contractions from the muscle stimulation from the high-intensity electromagnetic energy. The treatment will last for about 30 minutes. Once the treatment is complete, you will be able to return to your typical daily routine and usual activities without the need for any downtime or recovery period.
The results after Emsculpt are not instant because the body naturally builds new muscle tissue after the treatment is complete. Because the results are naturally generated, it will take a couple of weeks for the results to begin to appear.
It will take approximately two weeks for Emsculpt results to appear. During these two weeks, your body will grow new muscle cells and fibers, and the muscles will get larger. This results in a leaner, more toned and sculpted physique.
On average, results after Emsculpt are a 16% increase in muscle mass and a 19% reduction of fat tissue.
Emsculpt treatments are ideal for many body types. Emsculpt isn’t for obese patients, but if you are within 30 pounds of your ideal weight, with a BMI of 30 or below, you can benefit from Emsculpt treatments. If you feel you can maintain your weight and would like to build muscle mass, Emsculpt can help even if you’re over your ideal weight.
While you will notice some results after one treatment, you will need a series of results to achieve more significant muscle growth. For ideal results, you should plan to have six 30-minute sessions over the course of three weeks. Treatments should be spaced every 2-3 days, and two follow-up treatments should be performed within the following month.
