Emsculpt Body Contouring
Emsculpt is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that is used to build and sculpt abdominal and buttock muscles. Using cutting-edge High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) the device replicates the effects of an intense workout. One 30-minute treatment session generates 20,000 muscle contractions – the equivalent of 20,000 squats or 20,000 sit ups!
Emsculpt targets the abdomen and buttocks to build muscle tone, increase muscle mass, and burn fat. The device can reduce fat up to 20% in the target area, and can also help treat rectus diastasis, the separation of the rectus abdominis muscles (common after pregnancy and childbirth), by up to 10%.
Ideal candidates for Emsculpt are men and women who:
- Follow a healthy diet and lifestyle
- Engage in physical activity
- Are interested in improving the appearance of their abdomen or buttocks
- Want to remove stubborn fat
- Are seeking a more toned physique
- Have reached a fitness plateau
- Want a non-invasive butt lift
- Are interested in non-surgical body contouring
Some patients who are interested in Emsculpt body contouring may have a thicker layer of abdominal fat overlying their muscles. In these cases, removing excess stomach fat with liposuction prior to beginning a treatment plan may be a good option to consider in order to achieve the best results.
Emsculpt sessions begin with Dr. Mahmood strapping the device to the target treatment area (abdomen or buttock). For the next 30 minutes High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy focuses on the treatment area with a series of supramaximal muscle contractions followed by gentle ‘tapping’, which helps break up lactic acid buildup that occurs normally when a muscle is exercised.
Patients can lay down and comfortably watch television or read a magazine throughout the full 30 minute treatment session.
Following an Emsculpt treatment session, there is no downtime and patients may return to routine activity, such as work and exercise. It is advised to continue a healthy diet and exercise regimen for the best possible results.
The recommended treatment plan for maximum benefit is a minimum 4 sessions of 30-minute treatments scheduled approximately 2-3 days apart.
Safety & Risks
EmSculpt is the first FDA approved device of its type. Sessions are painless, non-surgical and feel similar to an intense workout. There is zero downtime/recovery after treatment sessions.
Results from Emsculpt are felt immediately after each session. More substantial, definitive results are usually reported two to four weeks following the last treatment session and continue to improve for several weeks after. Optimal results can be maintained by continuing a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise, and doing a ‘touch-up’ Emsculpt session every 2-3 months.
