Nearly everyone would jump at the chance to streamline and refine their abdomen without having to perform countless exercises or undergo invasive procedures. With recent innovations in body contouring technology, both men and women have a variety of options. These treatments can certainly prove handy for anyone who hasn’t gotten impressive results from their efforts at the gym. However, the most in-demand procedures for slimming and toning the waistline are non-invasive fat reduction treatments. Easily a top contender among these is EMSCULPT.
EMSCULPT uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate massive numbers of targeted muscle contractions, and to spot-reduce excess fat stores. Offered by progressive practices like Storch Sarraga Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, EMSCULPT is fast increasing in popularity. Unlike diet and exercise on their own, this treatment has the ability to utterly transform the body and its proportions. The only question is whether it’s able to help everyone reach their cosmetic goals. Following is an in-depth look at this procedure along with five ways to tell whether it’s the right solution for you.
EMSCULPT is a top-rated, noninvasive cosmetic procedure that men and women can use to contour and refine their abdominal areas and buttocks. With each session, targeted muscles are repeatedly stimulated to contract. This in turn burns off excess fat stores while toning the treated muscles and increasing their overall mass.
Given the extraordinary number of muscles contractions that are stimulated in a single session, fat cells across the treatment area die off and are eventually broken down. Once these are metabolized and released from the body, the treatment area will become noticeably slimmer and far more toned. EMSCULPT essentially provides an incredibly intense workout in a very short period of time while patients relax on their back.
Even with concerted efforts to eat healthily and have diligent exercise routines, it isn’t always possible for people to achieve their ideal figure. With HIFEM technology, the EMSCULPT appliance can do all of the hard work for you. This device leaves patients fitter, slimmer, and looking more muscular and toned. These 30-minute treatments work best for those within the five following profiles:
- Those who are already in good general health, and have a consistent workout routine and balanced diet
- People with relatively nominal amounts of excess fat at the buttocks or abdominal areas
- Anyone who’s already at their ideal body weight or near it
- Anyone with no pre-existing medical issues or heart problems
- Anyone with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or under
EMSCULPT has the ability to both burn off unwanted fat and build toned muscle. Best of all, these improvements can be accomplished with absolutely no incisions or tissue removal, no downtime, and no risk of scarring. This non-invasive option in body contouring builds stronger muscles and eliminates the excess fat that covers them.
The abdomen and the buttocks are the two areas most commonly treated with EMSCULPT. However, Dr. Sarraga can also use EMSCULPT to produce similar changes in the thighs, calves, and upper arms. The best results are often obtained after several treatments. Most patients are advised to undergo four to eight EMSCULPT treatments with each procedure being scheduled approximately two to three days apart.
After a person’s final EMSCULPT treatment is complete, results will start manifesting about two to four weeks later. There’s never any downtime with EMSCULPT. In fact, most people are able to resume their regular activities immediately after their procedures. Apart from slight and relatively short-lived redness, soreness, and swelling, there aren’t any significant aftereffects to contend with either.
If you’re looking for an effective and completely non-invasive way to slim and tone areas of convern, EMSCULPT could be right for you. Perfect for healthy people who are looking to streamline their physiques, this treatment produces up to 15-25% increase in fat loss and muscle definition.
