Understanding Emsculpting

For many people, diet and exercise are not enough to sculpt the body into the desired shape. Thus, a cosmetic body-sculpting procedure may be needed.

If you would like to enhance the shape of your body, you may be considering EmSculpting. Here is a bit of information about these treatments and what you can expect from them.

What Is EmSculpt?

EmSculpt is a cosmetic treatment that is used to contour the body. The procedure, which often targets the abdominal and gluteal muscles, is nonsurgical. Additionally, it does not employ the use of needles, cold, or heat.

How Does This Treatment Work?

EmSculpting employs magnetic fields to cause muscular contractions that burn fat while building and strengthening targeted muscle groups. The sculpting technology induces thousands of muscular contractions in a single session. 

How Long Is the Recovery Period?

After receiving a treatment, you can expect your recovery to be immediate. Because the treatment is noninvasive, there is no additional downtime needed for your body to heal or recover after the procedure. 

Is It Safe?

EmSculpting is approved by the FDA. Thus, it is considered safe. Once the patient is hooked up to the machine, they simply lie back and allow the pulses of electromagnetic energy to burn away the fat and strengthen their muscles.

How Long Does a Session Take?

A sculpting session may be performed in about a half-hour. Patients may complete several sessions per week for about two weeks. 

Are Results Immediate?

Patients may notice immediate improvements in the appearance of the treated area, losing inches by the time they have completed your sessions. However, they may notice progressive improvements for a few months following the treatment. Thus, the best and final results may not surface until several months have passed after the procedure. 

Can EmSculpt Be Used Instead of Exercise?

EmSculpting is best used in conjunction with exercise. Regular exercises engage multiple muscles at once. Additionally, exercise offers other benefits, such as cardiovascular improvements.

This treatment induces the firing of designated muscles. However, the patient is relaxing throughout the procedure, and only the targeted muscles are affected by the treatment.

Is It Painful?

The treatment is not considered painful. However, you may experience a bit of discomfort, similar to that from a session of intense exercise.

If you would like to receive these treatments, schedule a consultation with a provider like Skiin Anti-Aging Lounge in your local area.
