Is body sculpting for real? The 101 on EMsculpt magic
Body sculpting is becoming an increasingly well-known procedure in cosmetic treatment circles, and with good reason. This innovative new nonsurgical fat-zapping treatment promises to get rid of fat with no pain or scarring. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. EMsculpt is a non-invasive device that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic energy to build up your muscle while destroying localized fat—improving your body’s overall shape. Incredibly, EMsculpt outdoes the kind of muscle stimulus that can be achieved with exercise!
What to expect from EMsculpt treatments
The best areas for treatment are the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs. EMsculpt patients don’t require any anesthesia. A paddle applicator is simply placed over the area of unwanted fat and muscle, and it proceeds to release 20,000 supra-maximal muscle contractions over the course of each 30-minute treatment. After a series of 4-6 treatments, twice a week over 2-3 weeks, these contractions lead to an increase in the number of muscle myofibers, (aka hyperplasia), as well as a significant increase in the volume of each muscle fibre, (hypertrophy). In addition to the metabolic reaction of your muscles, the majority of overlying fat cells in the area also go through a series of metabolic reactions, during which time they become dysfunctional and a die.
Results, you ask?
There are at least seven reputable studies using MRI, CT, ultrasonography, circumferential waist measurements, and fat histology. Results show that on average, patients see a 16% increase in the size of treated muscles, and a 19% reduction of localized fat, along with a 4 cm circumferential reduction in hip circumference! When you opt for EMsculpt, you can expect very pleasing shaping and contouring results to be noticeable after the first few sessions. And after treatment, you can go back to your usual activities right away. You might feel a moderate degree of muscle fatigue, stiffness and soreness for 1-3 days, similar to how you’d feel after a voluntary workout! Fat that is destroyed during the EMsculpt program will stay gone as long as there is no significant weight gain, so a healthy diet and workout regime are always a plus when it comes to post-op maintenance of the new you!
