EMSCULPT is a noninvasive treatment to help simultaneously burn fat and build muscle to sculpt and contour the body. Using HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology, EMSCULPT promotes supramaximal muscle contractions to increase and build muscle at a cellular level. With EMSCULPT, patients can achieve a more toned appearance to the abdomen or buttocks. When exposed to the forced supramaximal muscle contractions, the muscle tissue of the stomach and buttocks are forced to adapt and respond. This results in the remodeling of the inner structure of the muscle and the construction of both new protein strands and muscle fibers.
EMSCULPT is ideal for patients who are wanting to eliminate small amounts of stubborn fat and contour their body without the downtime or scarring associated with more invasive fat reduction procedures. It is beneficial for both men and women who are wanting to sculpt their stomach and/or buttocks for a more toned appearance. During your consultation, we will discuss what results you can expect from an EMSCULPT procedure and help determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.
One EMSCULPT treatment typically lasts about 30 minutes. You are encouraged to relax as the HIFEM device is placed on the treatment area. Dr. Z will monitor and alter the device as necessary throughout your treatment to ensure that you are comfortable and receive your desired results. The procedure feels similar to an intense workout as the muscles contract, but there should be minimal discomfort.
WHAT TO EXPECT
There is no downtime associated with EMSCULPT and you should be able to return to your normal activities after your treatment. You may experience some slight swelling, soreness, or redness that should subside within a few days. Maximum results for EMSCULPT are typically noticed after a series of treatments. Most patients receive anywhere from 4 – 8 treatments that are spaced at least 2 – 3 days apart. Following the last treatment session, optimal results can be expected in around 2 – 4 weeks. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your needs and goals.
