It’s been the dream of generations. Hundreds of machines have failed. Now there is Emsculpt. It is now possible to strengthen your abdominal muscles effortlessly and pain free. How about lifting and shaping the buttocks without squats? In fact, you can drink wine, eat a donut, or watch a movie while this is happening – NO JOKE!
The science behind the device is fairly simple to understand. The Emsculpt uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate the underlying muscle. Think of the TENS unit that is used to improve aches and pains, ON STEROIDS. The contractions are “supramaximal”, meaning more intense than a person can do on their own. During a 30 minute session, the abs/buttocks contract equivalent to a workout of 20,000 crunches/squats. The usual protocol is to have a total of 4 sessions in 2 weeks. Expect some muscle soreness the next day or 2 but there is essentially no downtime. Better yet, there is really no risks either. There are 2 handpieces for each machine. This means that 2 patients can be treated simultaneously on the abdominal area or one patient on the buttocks area.
There were 7 different sites that studied the Emsculpt. Before and after CT scans, MRIs, and Ultrasounds were taken in the study group. Results showed muscle mass increased 16% consistently. What is even more interesting is that the average fat loss was 19% and waist measurements decreased by 4 cm.
Another treatment area is the gluteal area. Using 2 handpieces simultaneously, the buttocks is treated. The settings are adjusted so as to not cause any fat destruction but just muscle hypertrophy. Other areas being treated experimentally by some physicians are the thighs and calves. The pectoralis muscles definitely can’t be treated because they are too close to the heart and the strong electromagnetic waves might stimulate the heart.
There have been anecdotal reports of enhanced athletic performance after Emsculpt treatments. Is this a new legal way to get an edge on the competition?
Contraindications are people who have pacemakers, metal IUDs, metal implants or surgical clips (close to the treated area).
Bottomline, six pack abs and brazilian butt lifts can now be obtained using the noninvasive, risk free, no downtime, Emsculpt.
