Working out takes commitment, time, and dedication, but even still, you don’t always get the results you want. Sometimes you need something that can take your body to the next level. If you want to get stronger muscles while burning fat, we have just the thing. At Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, we offer a body contouring treatment that can transform your body, build muscle, and burn fat, and it’s called Emsculpt.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
Emsculpt is a body contouring treatment that helps build the abdominal, arm, calf, and gluteal muscles. It uses innovative technology to simultaneously burn fat and build muscle without any pain, side effects, or downtime. It doesn’t require any anesthesia, needles, or lengthy procedures to deliver results.
It uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology, also known as HIFEM, which works according to the same principle as a TENS unit, only much more powerfully.
A Muscle Building and Fat Burning Treatment
This treatment forces your muscles to contract in a way that doesn’t happen when you’re working out. Contractions are so intense and so focused that they help completely transform the muscle tissue to make it tighter and visibly toned.
As the muscles are forced into these powerful contractions, new protein strands and muscle fibers are created, and you get tighter and toned muscles. One of the bonuses of the treatment is that it helps burn fat in your treatment area as well. Fat loss will help those muscles become more visible.
Stronger Than Your Hardest Workout
During your treatment, you will spend the majority of your time lying in a relaxed position. However, the results will surpass your hardest workout by far. Emsculpt treatments can accomplish far more than your workouts can. A 30-minute treatment can deliver the kind of results you would get from performing 20,000 crunches or squats. No one could or would want to perform this many exercises in a 30-minute workout because your muscles would fatigue.
However, this treatment is nothing like a workout because you won’t have to move. All you have to do is lie down and relax as the device forces your muscles into repetitive contractions. You won’t have to do the work, the device will, but you’ll get to experience all the fruits of its labor. You won’t even work up a sweat, but you’ll get some incredible results.
Is the Treatment Effective?
If you are skeptical about the effectiveness of this treatment, we want you to know that it’s proven and it works. The results are real and proven. Studies have shown that Emsculpt does tighten and build muscles while eliminating fat. CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasounds were performed on patients before and after their treatment. These tests showed that patients experienced a 16% increase in muscle mass and a 19% decrease in fat volume after one month of beginning treatment.
Additionally, on average, patients lost 1.7 inches off their total waist circumference. Recent studies have generated additional positive results, revealing that patients have been experiencing an 18% increase in muscle mass and up to a 23% reduction in fat. The studies don’t lie. Instead, they’re proving that Emsculpt is an effective way to build muscle while targeting excess fat in the treatment area.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Does It Treat?
Initially, Emsculpt was specifically designed to build muscle and burn fat in the abdominals and gluteal area. However, it’s now approved to treat the arms and the calves as well.
Treating Diastasis Recti
In addition to strengthening the muscles, studies have shown that this treatment can also help treat diastasis recti. Diastasis recti occurs when the abdominal muscles separate from each other, and it most often occurs during pregnancy. For some women, those muscles don’t tighten post-birth, and the result is an extreme separation in the center of the abdomen. This treatment can help reduce diastasis recti by 11%.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
After undergoing this treatment, you can expect a 16 to 18% increase in your total muscle mass in the treatment area and a 19 to 23% reduction in your total fat volume. Losing fat and building muscle simultaneously is what helps you see visible results in the treatment area.
This treatment is so effective because burning fat while building muscle helps remove that layer of fat that keeps your muscles from popping. Most patients start to notice results within two to four weeks of completing the recommended number of sessions. Your results will continue to improve within six months of your initial treatment.
Tracking Your Progress
Before scheduling your treatment, we will use the InBody and Styku devices to help determine your total muscle mass, body fat, and visceral fat and take different body measurements. These services are free of charge, and we use them to determine your candidacy for treatment to create a baseline before your treatment.
These systems will also provide results that you can use to measure your post-treatment results against so you can see the difference between your post and pre-treatment measurements.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment?
There’s no preparation required for this treatment. All you have to do is show up, and our technician will take care of the rest. You’ll be on your way to tighter and stronger muscles and a leaner physique with less body fat.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Our technician will place the treatment device on your target treatment area when you arrive for your appointment. Once activated, the high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy will reach beyond your skin’s surface to target your muscles.
As the muscles contract, they will burn fat cells, and they will get stronger. In a quick 30 minute treatment, you’ll get some amazing results that may rival any gains you’ve made working out in the gym.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
We recommend that patients schedule four treatments over the course of two weeks. Each treatment session lasts 30 minutes, so you won’t have to rearrange your entire day to attend appointments.
What Are the Benefits?
This treatment is growing in popularity because it delivers real results, and word is spreading. Patients who want to get an edge on their fitness goals are scheduling this body contouring treatment to help perfect their bodies in a way that their diet and fitness routine just can’t. Women who want to help treat diastasis recti can use this treatment to help restore their abdominal muscles.
Thanks to this treatment, those who want to replicate results similar to that of a Brazilian butt lift can do so in a non-invasive way. Many patients have reported that they are stronger and can surpass their fitness goals at the gym after undergoing this treatment. They can workout harder and lift heavier than ever before.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime associated with this treatment, but you can expect to feel sore for the first 24 to 48 hours of your treatment. The soreness will feel similar to completing a hard or new workout where you used your muscles in a new way. This treatment will push your muscles to their limits, but other than feeling a little sore, you can resume all your normal activities once your treatment is complete.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for Emsculpt are men and women with a BMI of 30 or lower. While this treatment will help burn fat in the abdominals, glutes, arms, and calves, the fat in the treatment area must be pinchable fat that measures less than an inch.
If you don’t qualify for this treatment because you have too much fat in your planned treatment area, you may be a candidate for Coolsculpting. Once you successfully undergo Coolsculpting treatments and eliminate the necessary amount of stubborn fat cells in your planned treatment area, you can then schedule an Emsculpt treatment to further enhance your results.
