There are many cosmetic devices and treatments on the market that can help you shed fat and sculpt your body. However, Emsculpt sets itself apart from other body-contouring options. This non-invasive treatment is clinically proven to build muscle tone and burn fat fast.
But, what is Emsculpt and how can it further fine-tune and shape your body? Here’s what you need to know about the benefits and details of Emsculpt treatments at Schrader Facial Plastic Surgery in Princeton, NJ.
What Is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is the latest addition to body sculpting and contouring technology. While there are some similarities between Emsculpt and other fat reduction procedures, Emsculpt provides something extra to patients. In addition to burning fat, it also helps create muscle tone.
This makes it one of the first FDA-approved devices cleared to build and sculpt muscle mass.
Of course, exercise and a balanced diet are recommended to complement Emsculpt, but there is a limit to what healthy living can do. The Emsculpt device further sculpts the body and uses electromagnetic energy directly on the skin to contract the muscles and give patients a toned and defined look that can’t be achieved through traditional effort alone.
As a result, patients will gain better muscle tone and can burn fat very quickly.
Emsculpt works efficiently due to its use of highly focused electromagnetic energy. It causes muscles to fully contract without exercise or effort. Typically, people can only get their muscles to contract to around 35%, even if they are highly athletic and strong.
With this boosted contraction process, which is equivalent to around 20,000 crunches, the muscle can rebuild itself and body fat will be reduced over the following weeks.
How Does Emsculpt Work and What Can You Expect?
Overall, Emsculpt is a quick and painless process. It takes around thirty minutes to complete an Emsculpt session at Schrader Plastic Surgery.
After you have checked in with our team, one of our trained medical providers will place an Emsculpt paddle on your abdomen or other areas of your body where you wish to target fat and build muscle. Emsculpt is non-invasive and won’t cause trauma to the body.
The paddles will emit an electromagnetic pulse that contracts your muscles over and over again. While the sensation can be somewhat uncomfortable, it is not painful.
Once the treatment is complete, you can safely go back to work and other activities. You might feel some minor soreness after Emsculpt, but the sensation is similar to the aftermath of an intense workout and is easy to manage.
Patients will see more muscle definition and some fat reduction after their first treatment, but Dr. Schrader will recommend scheduling multiple Emsculpt treatments to fully tone your body. A minimum of two to three Emsculpt treatments will yield the best results. These can be done over a period of two weeks.
Individual results may vary, so you’ll want to schedule a consultation with Dr. Schrader to discuss your options and talk about the best treatment plan for your body.
Recovery After Emsculpt
Emsculpt is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. This makes it the perfect option for people who don’t have time for invasive surgeries or procedures. You won’t have to plan for recovery or shift your schedule to fit in an Emsculpt treatment. Instead, you can get back to your life right away.
Some soreness and tenderness can be expected after Emsculpt, but is similar to an intense workout and will go away within 2 to 3 days.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is meant for a very specific type of patient. Men and women who want to further tone and tighten their physique are a great match for Emsculpt. However, an ideal candidate for this procedure should already be relatively healthy and fit. Dr. Schrader also recommends that patients have relatively low body fat so the results of the treatment will be more visible.
Frequently Asked Questions About Emsculpt
The results of Emsculpt build up over time. You will notice some changes to your muscle tone after the first treatment. However, the full results of Emsculpt are usually seen after 2 to 4 weeks. Additional sessions of Emsculpt will enhance your results.
Since this is a non-invasive procedure, the recovery time for Emsculpt is short. It will only take two to three days to fully recover. You might feel some tenderness and soreness but other than that, there are no side effects.
The results of Emsculpt can last anywhere from six to twelve months. How long they will last depends on you. We recommend keeping up with your regular fitness routine and eating a healthy balanced diet to get the most out of your Emsculpt treatment.
Emsculpt can be used to target various regions of the body. This includes the abdomen, arms, legs, and back. Emsculpt can also be used to tighten up your butt and give it a more firm and perky look.
You won’t have to worry about any side effects or complications with this procedure. Emsculpt does cause short-term soreness, but the treatment is very safe.
Emsculpt does use electromagnetic pulses, but the treatment itself is not painful. You might feel a slight tingling or pulling sensation, but the intensity of Emsculpt is fully controlled by our aestheticians and won’t go past your comfort level.
