So you’ve been eating right and working out, but your body isn’t shaping up the way you’d like it to. If this sounds like you, it may be time to give Emsculpt a try. This amazing body contouring treatment, which is offered by Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center in Oklahoma City, OK, can get rid of patches of unwanted fat and build muscle tone. Best of all, this easy treatment delivers noticeable results quickly.
How Quickly Does Emsculpt Work?
Body contouring with the Emsculpt system typically involves four treatment sessions scheduled over two weeks. Patients usually notice some improvement immediately, with the final results developing within four weeks of their final session. Results from this treatment develop much faster than the results that can be achieved with cosmetic surgery or your most strenuous gym workouts.
This treatment can visibly improve the contours of your body, improve the fit of your clothing, and bolster your self-confidence. Individuals who undergo the full treatment series see targeted areas of fat reduced by an average of 19 percent and see muscle mass increase by an average of 16 percent. This treatment system makes it easy to get the figure you’ve been working so hard toward.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment uses electromagnetic energy at a high frequency to trigger super-maximal contractions in the muscles. These contractions are just like the ones your body experiences when it is working out but are much more intense. A single treatment triggers 20,000 muscle contractions. Depending on the part of the body you’re working, that’s the equivalent of performing 20,000 squats, lunges, curls, or crunches!
Instead of sweating it out in the gym, you’ll spend your time in treatment reclining comfortably. But during the weeks after your sessions, your treatment area will slim down and develop a more muscular contour, just as it would if you had performed a series of these super-human workouts on your own.
What Happens During Treatment?
These treatments are straightforward and painless. We’ll place the Emsculpt device over the part of your body you want to be targeted and strap it loosely in place. As the technology directs the electromagnetic energy, you may feel your muscles contract, and you may even experience gentle tugging. But you won’t feel any discomfort. Patients usually spend time in treatment by reading, checking email on the phone, or napping.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, you’ll be able to return immediately to your regular schedule with no limitations. Your muscles may feel tired, much like they would after a serious workout, but you’ll be able to continue with your normal activities.
Where on the Body Can This Treatment Be Performed?
This treatment can be used to contour areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, and buttocks.
What Can I Do To Get the Best Results?
Completing the full series of treatments and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are two steps you can take to ensure that you’re getting the best possible results from this treatment. Drinking plenty of water is another important step. Staying hydrated with plenty of water supports your body’s lymphatic system as it flushes out unwanted fat cells.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The unwanted areas of fat that this treatment eliminates will be gone for good, but it will be up to you to maintain the new muscle tone through continued workouts. Many patients find that with a healthy lifestyle, they can maintain their results long-term. Others opt to schedule occasional maintenance treatments.
Is This a Safe Treatment?
Yes. This treatment has been approved by the FDA and has been safely used on patients around the country.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You Haven’t Gotten Results With Diets and Exercise
Certain problem spots won’t respond to diet and exercise. If your healthy lifestyle isn’t delivering the results you want, this treatment system can help. It’s the perfect solution for individuals who are already leading healthy, active lives but who need a little help with a stubborn problem spot or two. Emsculpt makes it possible to finally achieve your cosmetic goals.
You Want To Build Muscle
If you’re looking to sculpt and contour your body with a non-invasive treatment system, several options are available. Our practice offers TruSculpt, Coolsculpting, and ZWave in addition to Emsculpt. But Emscupt is the only system that not only slims down areas of unwanted fullness but also develops muscle tone, giving you a cut, muscular physique and helping you get more out of your workouts.
By helping your body develop more muscle, this treatment can also boost your metabolism, making it easier for you to burn calories and stay in shape.
You’re Coming Back From an Injury
The muscle-developing capability of this treatment also makes it a popular option for athletes who are working to rebuild strength after being sidelined by an injury. Some individuals even receive this treatment as part of physical therapy programs.
You’re Not Looking for a Weight Loss Solution
This treatment system can visibly improve the look of your silhouette, but it is not a weight loss solution. This treatment sculpts your body by slimming down and toning stubborn problem spots, but it won’t help you lose a lot of weight. The ideal patient is already fairly close to their ideal weight and has a body mass index of 30 or less.
You Want More Control Over the Shape of Your Body
This treatment system allows patients to hone in on specific parts of the body they are unhappy with. It’s a more precise approach to contouring than general weight loss plans, where patients have little control over where the weight comes off.
You Don’t Have Metal Implants
This non-invasive treatment is suitable for most healthy adults who are 18 years of age or older. But this approach to body contouring is not suitable for pregnant women, and patients should not have metal implants in the treatment area.
You Aren’t Interested in Surgery
If you want to shape up your body without committing to the time and expense associated with cosmetic surgery, or if you aren’t a surgical candidate, this treatment solution may be for you. This approach to body contouring is completely non-invasive, and the fast and easy treatment sessions can be fit into even the busiest of schedules.
You Can Maintain Your Results
The ideal patient can maintain the results achieved with this treatment by adhering to a healthy, active lifestyle.
What Type of Fat Does This Treatment Target?
A unique benefit of this treatment is its ability to target visceral fat, which is the fat embedded around internal organs linked to health conditions like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Many of the other non-invasive body contouring treatments on the market instead focus on the superficial fat that lies just beneath the skin.
Will This Get Rid of Cellulite?
While this treatment can effectively get rid of areas of unwanted fat, it is not generally used as a cellulite treatment. If you’re unhappy with cellulite, our practice offers ZWave, another body contouring treatment that is a solution for cellulite. ZWave uses acoustic radial wave therapy to break down the internal structures that cause cellulite noninvasively.
Can This Be Paired With Other Treatments?
This treatment can be performed in conjunction with other services offered by our practice. Laser skin rejuvenation and skin tightening are frequently performed alongside Emsculpt. During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss your cosmetic goals and develop a treatment plan just for you.
Does Insurance Ever Cover This Treatment?
Because this is a cosmetic treatment, health insurance usually does not cover it.
How Can I Tell Which Body Contouring Treatment Is Best for Me?
Our practice offers several non-invasive body-contouring treatments, each of which offers different results. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your body, talk with you about what you’re hoping to accomplish, and make a recommendation about the best treatment for you.
