What is EmSculpt?
EmSculpt is a treatment for men and women who want better muscle definition and less body fat. The EmSculpt system delivers High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM®) energy to your muscles to induce powerful muscle contractions. During the treatment, you don’t have to move or consciously contract your muscles. Instead, the device makes your muscles do the work for you.
A single EmSculpt session is equal to a workout including 20,000 squats or crunches. Just like after a normal workout, your muscles feel sore after each EmSculpt session. However, most people don’t require downtime to recover. You can tone the muscles in these areas of your body:
EmSculpt causes your muscles to work more efficiently than they do during a normal gym workout or while playing sports. The strong muscle contractions cause your body to produce fatty acids that kill your fat cells, causing you to look slim and sculpted.
What are the results of EmSculpt treatments?
After your treatments with EmSculpt, you’ll notice better muscle definition and less body fat. You’ll start to see a difference just days after your procedure at Contours LaserSpa. You should see improvements for two to four weeks after each session.
On average, people see a 19% reduction in body fat in the areas they target with EmSculpt. They also notice a 16% or more increase in muscle mass. If you choose to treat your buttocks, you may also notice a lifting effect.
How long do EmSculpt treatments take?
Each EmSculpt session takes about 30 minutes to complete. For the best results, the professionals at Contours LaserSpa recommend getting around four sessions in total, with two to three days for recovery between each of them.
Am I a good candidate for EmSculpt?
Before you get EmSculpt or any other treatment, you should sit down for a brief consultation with one of the professionals at Contours LaserSpa. They ask about your medical history and give you a brief examination. In order to undergo EmSculpt treatments, you should:
- Be in relatively good shape
- Desire better muscle definition
- Have no screws, pacemakers, or other metal devices in your body
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
EmSculpt is also a great treatment option for athletes regaining strength after an injury or athletes who want better core strength to improve their performance. If you still have a high percentage of body fat, your provider might recommend losing some weight with exercise and a healthy diet before you get EmSculpt.
