The goal of every workout is to burn fat and build muscle, but it takes time, dedication, and discipline. While learning to be disciplined is a worthy goal, sometimes you just need to get results faster than the time it takes to do so naturally, and that’s where we come in. At The Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, we offer Emsculpt as a way to spot reduce areas of fat while simultaneously improving your muscle mass, tone, and definition.
10 Reasons to Begin Your Emsculpt Treatment
If you’ve heard about Emsculpt but aren’t sure whether it is right for you, there are endless reasons why you should not only consider treatment but call and schedule your initial consultation so that you can begin your treatment sessions as soon as possible.
This treatment provides patients with the opportunity to tone their abdominals and gluteal muscles in a way that is simply not possible at the gym, all while burning stubborn fat at the same time.
1. You Will Get the Best Workout of Your Life
This treatment is comparable to a very intense, superhuman workout, but the best part is, you don’t have to lift a finger. As you lie back and relax during the thirty-minute session, you will undergo what equates to performing 20,000 crunches or 20,000 squats. If that doesn’t tempt you to consider scheduling an appointment as soon as possible, nothing will.
2. You Can Increase Muscle Tone
Every personal trainer will tell you that you cannot spot train certain areas to build muscle and lose fat, and those trainers are correct. However, with Emsculpt, you can do just that. This treatment causes the muscles to contract in a superhuman way. The human brain cannot create the same type of strong muscle contractions that this device can, which is what helps define the muscles and tone them quickly, effectively, and efficiently.
3. You’ll Look Better in Your Clothes
Whether you’re trying to get in shape for a special event, or just for life in general, this treatment will make you look better in your clothes. If you’re preparing for a beach vacation or getting ready for summer, you will find that these sessions will help you look better in your swimsuits and give you the confidence to wear those same swimsuits that you may have avoided in the past.
4. You Can Take a Break From Restrictive Dieting
If you’ve been following restrictive diets that leave you hungry, tired, and irritable, you can go back to a normal, healthy meal plan. This treatment will help you reach your body goals without making you feel like you don’t have the energy to get through your day because you’re too hungry to function.
5. You Can Target and Treat Diastasis Recti
If you’ve never been pregnant before, diastasis recti may sound like words from a foreign language, but if you have been pregnant, you may be one of the millions of women who suffer from this condition. Diastasis recti is a condition that develops during pregnancy that causes the abdominal muscles to separate, creating a gap down the center of the stomach muscles. Studies have shown that this treatment can reduce diastasis recti by 11%.
6. It’s Non-Invasive
Emsculpt uses innovative technology to burn fat and tone muscle in a completely non-invasive way. It requires no poking, prodding, incisions, or surgical measures to complete. Your skin won’t be cut, fat won’t be suctioned, and you won’t need any incisions or stitches.
7. There’s No Downtime
Once you undergo this treatment, you will be amazed at the fact that there is no downtime. You won’t need to plan around any recovery time, you won’t need someone to help you around the house for several days, and you won’t need anyone to drive you to and from your treatments. You won’t have to follow a list of post-treatment directives, nor will you experience any disruption in your daily routine post-treatment.
8. The Results Are Gradual
If you want to keep your treatments hidden from your friends, family, and co-workers, you will be happy to know that the results that come from this treatment are gradual. You won’t walk out after your first session looking completely different, but you will experience gradual fat loss and muscle improvements in the weeks that follow your treatments. Your results will come gradually over six months and will be noticeable, but will also look completely natural.
9. The Results Are Proven
The results don’t lie. Whether they are results reported in study findings, or they are tangible visible results in the form of before and after photos, these results are proven. Studies have even shown that one of the results of this treatment, when performed on fit individuals, is improved athletic performance. That means, whether you participate in sports, or you limit your athletic abilities to time spent in the gym, your overall athletic performance will improve.
10. You Will Finally Reach Your Body Goals
You’ve dieted, you’ve gone on long runs, you’ve worked with a trainer, and you’ve gone to class after class at the gym, but you still haven’t been able to get the definition you’ve been hoping for. This treatment will do what the gym and your diets haven’t been able for you: burn fat while toning your muscles. With just a few sessions, you will be able to reach the body goals that you may have thought were out of your reach.
What Is EmSculpt?
Emsculpt is an FDA-approved fat reducing, a muscle-defining treatment that utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic (also known as HIFEM) to create muscle contractions that are stronger than those that the brain is capable of producing during exercise and activity. These contractions change and redefine the muscles from the inside out, strengthening and building them and increasing both muscle density and volume, all while burning and destroying fat cells.
What Areas Does It Target?
Emsculpt is FDA-approved to treat the abdominal and buttocks and is currently in the process of getting more areas of the body approved for treatment. It will tighten and tone the abdominal muscles while reducing fat in the area, and it will provide you results similar to those that can be achieved through a Brazilian butt lift, minus the invasive measures. This treatment lifts your buttocks and contours and shapes the area while helping to spot-reduce stubborn fat at the same time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The total number of treatments needed to see visible results varies from one patient to the next based on their ultimate aesthetic goals, their body fat, and their fitness level. We typically recommend four 30-minute treatment sessions spaced out over two weeks for the best results. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your goals and create a customized treatment plan that will help you reach your ideal body goals.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Emsculpt is a treatment that defies the saying, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” It is a pain-free treatment, but since it involves muscle contractions of superior strength, you may experience muscle soreness in the 24 to 48 hours following your treatment. You will get the soreness you recognize from an intense workout without ever having to set foot in the gym because your muscles really are working.
While you may feel sore post-treatment, you can still maintain your regular exercise schedule. You don’t need to avoid exercise but can continue any activity that you feel up to performing with some muscle soreness. Sometimes the best medicine for sore muscles is movement, so head to the gym or go for a walk to get your body moving. You’ll never regret a workout, even if it’s a minor one.
When Will I See Results?
Since the results from this treatment are gradual, you won’t notice a dramatic change after one treatment. Patients who choose this treatment to define their muscles and burn fat typically experience results within two to four weeks following their first treatment. Results continue to appear and improve in the six months that follow the initial treatment.
Who Is a Candidate for This Treatment?
This treatment is not intended for those who are overweight or obese or are looking for an easy way to lose weight. This treatment is intended for relatively fit to very fit and lean individuals who want to spot treat areas that have fat while toning those muscles at the same time. Ideal candidates for this treatment have a body mass index of 30 or lower. They also must have less than one inch of pinchable fat in the desired treatment areas to experience muscle improvements.
The Importance of Your Consultation
During your initial consultation, you will undergo a thorough evaluation with both the “InBody” and “Styku” methods. These devices measure and evaluate visceral fat, body fat, and muscle mass with extreme accuracy. They allow us to create a baseline before treatment and they give us something to compare post-treatment measurements with. If you do have larger deposits of fat, we may recommend CoolSculpting for fat reduction before treatment.
The Importance of Realistic Expectations
Before you begin treatment, it is important to have realistic expectations regarding what this treatment is and what it is not. Typically, those who undergo this treatment experience a 16% to 18% increase in muscle mass in the treatment area, and a 23% reduction of fat. This treatment will help you reach your body goals, but it is not a free pass for laziness. In order to maintain your results, you need to adhere to your exercise routine and continue to eat healthily.
When you stay consistent with your treatment sessions and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you will experience results you may have not thought possible. This treatment is a way to take your fitness routine to the next level and achieve the body of your dreams, but you play a part in maintaining your results.
