EMsculpting: the latest addition to your fitness routine
Do you eat well and exercise, yet feel like regardless of what you do, you will never be able to lose that last area of fat around your stomach and thighs? No matter what people say, the powers of diet and exercise have their limits. Enter EMsculpting, the latest, highly advanced body sculpting treatment that has people wondering if it’s too good to be true. BLT EMsculpting essentially causes 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes, providing you with the same look and feel that comes from exercising and dieting for six months. You heard right. EMsculpting is the first and only technology to use high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) for the purpose of eliminating excess fat and toning and muscle building. It’s no wonder many are choosing to incorporate EMsculpting into their fitness routines!
What kind of results are we talking, here?
The supra-maximal contractions delivered during each 30-minute treatment session exceeds the kind of muscle stimulus that can be achieved through voluntary exercise, bodybuilding or muscle action. Let that sink in. Additionally, Dr. Mulholland can treat multiple areas simultaneously in one appointment at SpaMedica, located in Toronto. Patients commonly choose to focus on their abdomen and glutes. If you’re on the skeptical side, know that there are multiple reputed studies using MRI, CT, ultrasonography, circumferential waist measurements, and fat histology that show an approximate 16% muscle mass increase in treated areas and a 19% reduction of localized fat, as well as a 4 cm reduction in abdominal hip circumference. The strengthening, firming, and defining of your abs and glutes have been truly revolutionized. There are even EMsculpt settings that allow treatment of your glutes that will increase the size and muscular tone of your buttocks without reducing fat! Translation: the perfect butt is possible.
Following your EMsculpt treatment sessions, you may experience a moderate degree of muscle fatigue, stiffness and soreness for 24 to 72 hours, almost as though you worked out! Resting for a day or two may make sense, but patients can go back to normal activities immediately including mild, moderate or even strenuous exercise and workouts at the gym. Expect to see results 2-6 weeks post-treatment, and continual improvement for the six months following as well. Results are considered long-term, however, the best maintenance includes continuing reasonable dietary and exercise habits, as well as two treatments once every 6 to 12 weeks.
