If you are looking for EmSculpt providers with excellent before and after results, we would love to see you at Esthetics Center. In the world of body contouring, fat-reduction gets most of the love and attention, but we are also proud to offer this relatively new treatment which helps build lean muscle mass and definition that would take months to achieve in the gym. EmSculpt is the most effective device in the world when it comes to building muscle. One session is equivalent to doing 20,000 sit-ups or squats! If you want incredibly fast results without having to spend months or years in the gym, then EmSculpt is the perfect procedure for you. It is the latest innovation in the world of esthetics, helping you achieve a fit body without needing extra time at the gym.BOOK NOWBOOK CONSULTATION
During an EmSculpt body contouring treatment, an applicator will be placed over the treatment area—your belly, buttocks, or thighs—to deliver electromagnetic energy directly into the muscle layers. EmSculpt is very effective because it can bypass the skin and fat (which are poor conductors of magnetic energy) and directly stimulate the muscle fibers to contract. EmSculpt can stimulate as many as 25,000 muscle contractions in a thirty-minute treatment by delivering hundreds of pulses per second. But while the result might be the equivalent of powering through thousands of crunches in a single session, you won’t feel the same pain or experience days and days of soreness. The intensity of the treatment can also be controlled and adjusted to the patient’s comfort level. After your treatment is finished, you’ll walk out of the office and resume all your normal daily activities. With EmSculpt, there is no downtime, which is a huge plus!
The paddle-like applicator is placed over the treatment site and loosely secured with a velcro strap. The electromagnetic current delivered via the applicator passes easily through the skin, fat, and even a thin layer of clothing, causing muscle contractions. The result is stronger, more conditioned, and more toned muscles.
During an EmSculpt treatment, your muscles will work hard, completing hundreds of contractions per minute, but you should not feel pain. Depending upon your settings, it might feel "intense," in which case we can easily turn it down with the press of a button. Surprisingly, most of our patients are NOT sore after their session. The reason is that EmSculpt does not tear any muscle fibers—It merely contracts the muscles. You may feel like you got a good workout in, but chances are you won't feel overly sore.
The ideal EmSculpt patient is close to their target body weight and looking to enhance muscle definition in specific parts of their body, namely the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Almost anyone can try EmSculpt, but the number of sessions required can vary from patient to patient, and we may also recommend complementary treatments to help with fat reduction. Some conditions may prevent patients from trying EmSculpt, such as IBS, seizure disorders, and electronic or metal implants such as copper IUDs or heart stents. Please contact our office if you are interested in finding out whether EmSculpt is right for you.
As a relatively new treatment in the world of medical body contouring, we are proud to be one of the first providers in the greater Sacramento area to provide EmSculpt to our patients. Not only are the before and after results amazing, but our patients are pleasantly surprised at the ease of the treatment and the lack of downtime. If you want maximum body contouring, consider combining EmSculpt with CoolSculpting. We would love the opportunity to show you the possibilities. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation and treatment plan.
The EmSculpt transformation is both cosmetic and functional. EmSculpt will indeed improve muscle conditioning, and the results are cumulative with each session. Most of our patients feel stronger and notice a difference in their regular activities, including their daily fitness routines. Some patients also report other benefits such as improved back pain and better posture by strengthening the core.
Many patients notice an improvement right away, but results will fully emerge after several weeks as muscle fibers strengthen and muscle mass increases. We recommend four to six treatments in total, and with each session, you’ll both feel stronger and see more and more definition. Your EmSculpt results may even spark a renewed commitment to a healthy diet and lifestyle, which will help to maintain your results for up to six months. We recommend a follow-up treatment every four to six weeks for those who wish to maintain their results regularly.
Some of our patients are familiar with TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) units and are curious if EmSculpt works similarly. TENS units send an electrical current through the skin, but they do not stimulate the muscle effectively. The TENS unit would need to be set to an uncomfortably high level to achieve the same level of muscle stimulation as an EmSculpt device. EmSculpt uses MMS (magnetic muscle stimulation) energy which can more easily penetrate the muscle fibers. EmSculpt is not painful and much more effective for increasing muscle mass, whereas TENS units are more suitable for pain management.
