You don’t have to do thousands of squats, crunches, or other challenging exercises to obtain a toned and attractive body. At The Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, we can use the Emsculpt contouring treatment to improve your muscles and burn away your fat. Read on to learn how Emsculpt results can give you an attractive, muscular body.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?
Empsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology, also known as HIFEM, to sculpt your body. If you are a fit person who hasn’t been able to define and sculpt your muscles with workouts and diet programs, you will probably be a good candidate for this treatment.
Achieving Optimal Results
Although you don’t have to be at your ideal weight to use this technique, your Emsculpt results will be easier to see if you have a smaller amount of body fat. As a result, you are likely to see more dramatic improvements in your musculature if you have a small amount of pinchable fat in your target area. In addition, your Body Mass Index, also known as BMI, should not be higher than thirty.
Protecting Your Safety
Since this treatment uses electromagnetic energy to change your body, you cannot use this sculpting method if you have a metal IUD, metal implant, or pacemaker. In addition, you must not have other types of electronic implants that are close to your target area, a history of seizures, or a medical condition that affects your heart.
How Will I Monitor My Emsculpt Results?
During your sculpting treatment, we will use our advanced Styku and InBody analysis tools to measure changes in visceral fat and muscle mass. Measuring your body will allow us to monitor and record your improvements as you complete your sculpting treatments. Seeing changes in your physique will also motivate you to adopt a healthy diet and exercise plan.
How Does This Technique Improve my Muscles and Burn My Fat?
This technique improves the condition of the muscles in your treatment area by sending electromagnetic energy into your body. When this energy reaches your muscles, it will cause them to contract very quickly.
Stimulating Your Muscles
These movements are called supramaximal contractions because they are more intense than the muscular movements that you would experience during exercise. In fact, receiving one short Emsculpt treatment is similar to doing twenty thousand crunches in the gym.
Toning Your Body
These rapid contractions will change the structure and appearance of your muscles. During your treatment, your muscles will go through a process known as muscle hypertrophy. This process will increase the size and strength of your muscles. In addition to experiencing muscle hypertrophy, your body will make new proteins and muscle fibers. This process is called muscle hyperplasia.
Burning Away Your Fat
Your rapid muscular contractions will use up energy in your body. As your body burns away this energy, the fat in your target area will decrease.
What Types of Muscles Can This Treatment Improve?
This technique is a great way to achieve firm, sculpted abdominal muscles. We can also use this technique to give you firmer, more shapely buttocks.
Will I Receive Injections or Incisions During My Sculpting Sessions?
If the idea of getting an injection or an incision makes you nervous, this treatment might be a good choice for you. Our body sculpting device emits electromagnetic energy that will pass through your skin’s surface and change the behavior of your muscles. Since this energy is able to bypass the top layers of your skin, we will not cut into your stomach, buttocks, or other areas of your body during any of your appointments.
Since this treatment uses very gentle techniques to improve your muscles, you also won’t need to receive local or general anesthesia during your appointments. As a result, we will not inject any foreign substances into your body.
What Will Happen During My Sculpting Session?
When you arrive at our office in Santa Rosa Beach, we will gently attach the Emsculpt applicator to your treatment area. As this applicator sends electromagnetic energy into your body, you will feel your muscles contracting at a rapid rate. This feeling will not be frightening or uncomfortable. Instead, you might feel like you are taking a challenging exercise class.
Over the next thirty minutes, the applicator will move through a series of cycles as it continues to send energy into your muscles. This process will cause thousands of muscle contractions. Toward the end of your appointment, the applicator will cause your muscles to contract in a slow, intense manner. These slow contractions will help your body adjust to this treatment.
Will I Need to Take a Break From Exercising After My Appointment Is Finished?
It’s common for your muscles to feel slightly tired and sore after you receive this treatment. This feeling will be similar to the fatigue that you have experienced after you performed a difficult workout session. If you would like to rest, you can take a break from your exercise routine for a couple of days.
However, you are not required to avoid physical activity after you receive this non-invasive treatment. If you have sufficient energy, you can immediately go jogging, attend a yoga class, or perform other rigorous activities. Further, you don’t need to worry about using up your personal or vacation days during your recovery period. You do not need to stay home from your job or take a break from your other responsibilities.
How Long Will My Treatment Plan Take To Complete?
We will usually advise you to receive multiple sculpting treatments. The specific design of your body contouring plan will depend on the amount of muscle mass that you are trying to build and the amount of fat that you want to remove.
In general, you can achieve a fitter, more muscular body after you receive four sculpting sessions. Each of your treatments will take half an hour to complete, and we will schedule your appointments over a period of about two weeks.
How Quickly Will My Muscles Improve?
You can expect to see your initial Emsculpt results about two to four weeks after you receive your first sculpting treatment. As you continue to receive sculpting sessions, your muscles will become larger and more noticeable. You will probably see the full benefits of Emsculpt within the next six months.
Can This Treatment Really Change My Body?
There is a great deal of scientific evidence that demonstrates the positive effects of this body sculpting method. In particular, several clinical studies have shown that this treatment can tighten muscles and decrease body fat. During these studies, researchers used ultrasound techniques, MRIs, and other methods to measure the changes in people’s bodies.
On average, people who received this treatment increased their muscle mass by 16% and lost 19% of their abdominal fat. Further, the average waist circumference went down by almost two inches. After about six months, people’s muscle mass went up by 18% and their fat decreased by 23%.
How Can I Maintain My Muscular Physique?
The best way to maintain your toned, sculpted look is to take good care of your body. During the next several months, you should exercise frequently and eat a balanced diet.
In addition to following a healthy lifestyle, you can receive periodic follow-up treatments to maintain your Emsculpt results. It’s common to receive Emsculpt touch-up treatments twice every year.
Can This Contouring Treatment Be Used To Improve Diastasis Recti?
Diastasis recti occurs when the muscles in your abdomen separate. This condition can cause your stomach to look puffy and loose. It’s common to develop diastasis recti during pregnancy. Your abdominal muscles may separate as your growing uterus puts extra stress on this area of your body. In addition, you might develop this condition after you carry heavy objects or perform challenging exercises that affect your abdominal muscles.
If you have this condition, you can use this treatment to strengthen your abdominal muscles and improve the appearance of your stomach.
Can This Treatment Improve My Muscles Without Removing the Fat in My Buttocks?
This cosmetic treatment is a great way to contour your buttocks without removing the fat in this part of your body. During your sculpting sessions, we will adjust the type of electromagnetic energy that we send into your buttocks. These adjustments will allow this treatment to increase the muscle mass in your buttocks without harming the fat cells in this location.
What Other Techniques Can I Use To Reduce Fat and Sculpt My Body?
In addition to Emsculpt, you can use several other non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments to enhance your body.
CoolSculpting improves your appearance by using a cooling device to kill some of the unwanted fat cells in your body. We will destroy these fat cells by suctioning some of your fat into a device that will gently lower the temperature of your fat cells. The fat in your body is very sensitive to changes in temperature, and the cooling process will kill your fat cells without damaging your other tissues.
We have more than a decade of experience using this cooling technology to sculpt and craft the body. In 2009, The Aesthetic Clinique became one of the first twenty places in the United States to use this cooling technology. Since then, we have completed over two thousand CoolSculpting treatments.
Kybella is an injectable product that can contour your profile by reducing the amount of fat under your chin. This injectable contains a synthetic type of deoxycholic acid. This acid is able to destroy the fat cells underneath your chin. Although you will see improvements in your double chin after a single injection session, you might need to receive up to six Kybella treatments to eliminate your double chin.
Combining different body sculpting techniques is a great way to dramatically change your physique. For example, if you have a larger amount of unwanted fat on your stomach, you might not be able to immediately improve your abdominal muscles with Emsculpt.
To prepare your body for this muscle enhancement treatment, we might advise you to receive CoolSculpting. Once your stomach is slimmer, you will be able to use Emsculpt to tone the muscles in your abdomen. Since your abdominal fat will be reduced, the improvements in your muscles will be more noticeable.
Enhance Your Muscles
You shouldn’t have to spend all of your time in the gym to achieve a muscular, slim physique. Emsculpt can burn your fat and strengthen your muscles in a non-invasive manner. If you take good care of your body, your results are likely to last for a long time.
