A well-balanced diet and an effective workout routine can melt away the pounds, build muscle, and put you on the road to a healthy life. However, despite the long hours in the gym and turning down junk food, there is always that one area of your body that doesn’t look and feel as toned as you’d like. Maybe it’s your abdomen or your buttocks, either way, it’s the area that doesn’t seem to meet the standard you’ve set. But what can you do, you’ve tried everything, yet nothing seems to work?
There isn’t another exercise that you can do to melt away that last little bit of fat. The only tactic that’s effective enough to remove it is care from a cosmetic specialist. After many years of trying, researchers have made a revolutionary discovery. For most people, it has been virtually impossible to stimulate the muscle contractions needed to achieve the ultimate toned look – until the development of EMSculpt.
What is EMSculpt?
EMSculpt is an advanced therapy designed to target specific areas where stubborn fat pockets prevent you from achieving your desired toned appearance. You’ve probably heard of other treatments that claim to offer the same toning benefits, but EMSculpt goes one step further. Due to the high intensity focused electromagnetic energy, this treatment builds muscle while reducing fatty deposits; other body sculpting technology focuses only on minimizing fat.
The Science behind EMSculpt Technology
As the world’s only non-invasive procedure that simultaneously burns fat while building muscle, EMSculpt’s technology triggers supramaximal muscle contractions. These contractions cause a metabolic reaction that strengthens and builds muscles while breaking down fat on a cellular level. Your body then expels fat through its natural metabolic process. Though many patients complete strenuous workout routines to sculpt their bodies, these routines cannot achieve the same effect as EMSculpt; a session of treatment on the abdomen can create contractions equivalent to 20,000 crunches – more than you could ever expect to perform on your own.
EMSculpt Treatment in Burlington and Oakville
The standard course of treatment for the EMSculpt is a series of four sessions performed over two weeks. However, the length and number of sessions depend on the amount of fat you wish to eliminate and how toned you would like to be. During the procedure, paddles are placed on the targeted area while electromagnetic energy passes through the many layers of skin and underlying fatty deposits to the muscles below. At increasing levels of stimulation, supramaximal muscle contractions begin. As the body experiences intensified contractions, the targeted muscles respond with a deep remodeling that builds desired muscle tone.
What Does EMSculpt Feel Like?
Most patients find that the EMSculpt therapy makes their bodies feel as if they are going through an intense workout; however, because all the muscle movement is stimulated by the device, patients do not exert themselves. Most patients chose to lie down during the therapy, but the device can be used while standing. Despite the feeling of muscle contraction, the therapy is not painful, and there is no need for any pain management before using the EMSculpt.
Will I be Sore After my Procedure?
Typically, with a traditional workout, you experience stiff and sore muscles. EMSculpt is designed to help alleviate some of those issues. One of the benefits of this advanced technology is that the intensity of treatment is controlled and has been programmed to change at specified intervals. Towards the end of treatment, the intensity is altered to encourage the dispersion of any lactic acid that has built up during the contractions. Lactic acid is a metabolic byproduct of intense exercise responsible for causing muscle fatigue and post-exercise muscle soreness. Because the device encourages dispersion of lactic acid, patients experience little, if any, soreness after treatment.
Recovery after Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Because the EMSculpt is 100% non-invasive and requires no preparation, there isn’t any extended recovery. Once treatment has been concluded, patients can return to their normal activities without any issues. Usually, treatment lasts for approximately thirty minutes making it possible to receive therapy without having to take a day away from work or other activities.
Frequently Asked Questions about EMSculpt
When Can I See Results?
While patients can feel the treatment working during their appointment, it takes some time for the body’s anatomy to physically change. The greatest results are usually seen approximately two to four weeks after your last session. It is important to note that the body will continue to improve for several weeks, possibly even months after the treatment, as your metabolic system flushes out treated fat cells.
Am I A Candidate for Treatment?
Treatment is typically reserved for people who are at least 21 years old and for those who are at or close to their ideal body weight. Almost anyone can benefit from EMSculpt, but those who are pregnant or planning for pregnancy will need to disclose this during the consultation as it can affect candidacy. If you have a low BMI and are not a candidate for other fat reduction treatment, you may be a candidate for EMSculpt.
What Areas of The Body Can Be Treated with EMsculpt?
Currently, EMSculpt has been approved by the FDA for treatment in the abdominal region and has been used on the buttocks for a first-of-its-kind non-surgical butt lift.
As the world’s first treatment with the ability to achieve the dual results of burning fat while building muscle, treatment is popular with anyone who may have reached a plateau in their fitness goals.
