Everyone wants a stunning physique, but not everyone has the hours or money to carve out the ideal body at the gym or with a highly regarded Plastic Surgeon. Even with a spartan-like exercise routine and diet, there’s no guarantee you’ll achieve the toned, slim figure you’ve been dreaming of. Enter Emsculpt. An innovative, non-surgical body-contouring option that has helped countless patients achieve their ideal appearance in a matter of a few weeks.
The Science Behind Emsculpt
This treatment uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to trigger contractions, which results in 20,000 contractions in a 30-minute time frame. This is beyond anything anyone could do on their own – it would be nearly superhuman for an individual to match that number of crunches or sit-ups.
As the muscles are subjected to such intense pulses, they begin releasing chemicals which trigger fat cell breakdown. As the cells are destroyed, they release fatty acids, which in turn trigger more fat cells to die off. Ultimately, these destroyed cells are metabolized and naturally eliminated by the body.
With Emsculpt, patients never see a scalpel or need a stitch which allows them to be able to return to work immediately post and daily activities and exercise routines are maintained.
Emsculpt works the same way as any workout, meaning that the process is the same as if you’ve spent a full day in the gym. As the applicator stimulates a muscle contraction, the muscle fibers in the target area tear and stretch as they would during a tough workout. During the recovery phase between each session, your muscles rebuild stronger and firmer, leaving you with a slimmer, more toned physique
Why Emsculpt Stands Out
Emsculpt’s unique fat elimination process offers several unique advantages in comparison to other non-surgical body sculpting options. For starters, Emsculpt is FDA-approved as a muscle toning and strengthening procedure rather than a weight-loss option. However, the innovative use of electromagnetic energy to hyper-stimulate contractions also causes patients to lose unwanted fat in the process. As this innovative approach helps encourage muscle fiber growth, patients who choose Emsculpt are effectively replacing stubborn lumps with toned muscle. In one study, this treatment was shown to increase muscle mass by 16% while shrinking the waistline by nearly 19%.
Another key advantage of Emsculpt is that the procedure can be applied to several different parts of the body. While many choose this option to target love handles and muffin tops, the treatment can be used to stimulate the gluteal muscle, revealing toned buttocks without the recovery of surgery or hassle of a strict workout regimen. Furthermore, this treatment has received high praise from women as treatment for diastasis recti, a common form of abdominal separation that occurs during pregnancy and is often treated with tummy tucks (abdominoplasty).
As if these treatments aren’t incentive enough, Emsculpt is among the few procedures that yield nearly immediate results. While other non-surgical body contouring options can require several sessions until results even begin to show, patients who choose this option see noticeable results almost immediately after their first session.
During Your Emsculpt Treatment
Since this procedure is non-surgical, preparation for Emsculpt is a straight-forward. You’ll visit our Oakville specialists for an in-depth consultation, during which we’ll assess your health and ensure this is the right procedure for achieving your goals. As Emsculpt is designed to tone muscle rather than eliminate fat, this treatment option is most effective for individuals who maintain an active lifestyle, have a lower body mass index and are at their ideal body weight.
The actual procedure can be broken down into three phases as the applicator instrument gradually increases contraction intensity and frequency over the course of the 30-minute session. While you’ll notice a change almost immediately after the first session, best results are achieved when patients undergo four sessions spread out over two weeks. As EMSculpt does not totally eliminate all fat cells, it is important that patients continue their usual exercise and diet routines if they want to keep their results. At ICLS, our surgeons recommend individuals schedule maintenance treatments throughout the year or use the Emsculpting procedure in conjunction with CoolSculpting treatments for a comprehensive body sculpting result.
As EmSculpt is totally non-invasive, recovery from each session is nearly non-existent. If anything, you’ll feel like you just finished a tough work out.
