The desire to stay in shape is one shared by people of all ages. It is not always easy to remain in shape as some fat on the body can be very resistant to diet and exercise. When it comes to reducing fat and also gaining a better body contour, one of the most popular cosmetic fat reduction treatments is EMSCULPT.
EMSCULPT is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that is designed for use on the buttock and abdomen. The procedure reduces fat and builds muscle at the same time in order to provide a better contour to the body. EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction uses magnetic energy that creates a series of muscle contractions that stimulate the muscles, enhances the fat metabolism to destroy fat cells and build new muscle mass to provide contour and an increased definition to the body.
In order to give patients a better idea at what is involved in undergoing EMSCULPT, Cosmetic Town TV recently took a closer look at EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction.
EMSCULPT is performed using technology known as HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to get rid of resistant fat while also building the muscles. The EMSCULPT treatment takes about 30-minutes to perform and the electromagnetic energy is focused on the targeted area. The treatment is equal to performing 20,000 crunches or squats. Patients will see some results after the first treatment but it takes about four treatments to see the desired results.
EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction can be combined with additional treatments such as CoolSculpting to provide additional removal of excess fat or Exilis Ultra to further tighten the skin.
Ideal candidates for EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction include patients that want to have better definition to the abdomen or the buttocks. They should be in good physical shape and have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 25. In addition, this treatment is a good medical option for patients that want improve the separation of their abdominal muscles after a pregnancy.
The total cost of EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction depends on the amount of treatments performed, the number of areas on the body being treated, any fees charged by the doctor or the facility and the area of the country where it is performed. In general, the cost can range anywhere from $3500-$4500 for the four treatments that are normally recommended.
Patients can resume their normal activities after having EMSCULPT since there is no downtime required after the procedure. The recovery process is similar to recovering after a strenuous workout. Patients might feel some soreness for a few days after the treatment.
When it comes to the final results, most patients will start to see some results within 2-4 weeks after their final treatment session. The results will continue to improve as time passes. The final results are not permanent but they can easily be maintained if a person has additional EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction treatments or maintains an active and healthy lifestyle. If a person gains weight after the series of treatments, the patient might experience fat in the areas of the body that were not treated using EMSCULPT.
One of the main reasons patients enjoy using EMSCULPT as a method to reduce fat and contour the body is the fact that there are no risks involved with undergoing the treatment. Patients might feel some soreness after the treatment but there is no need to take extended time off work after having EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction. The only limitation to the treatment is that the results are not permanent. Patients will need to have additional treatments to maintain their final results. In addition, patients that have a pacemaker or another metal implant are not ideal EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction candidates as the pacemaker or metal implant can be impacted by the electromagnetic energy of the treatment.
EMSCULPT is a very effective method to increase the metabolism of a person for more efficient fat burning. The treatment also provides a better contour to the body by building muscle. In order to determine if EMSCULPT is the right choice for a person, patients should schedule a consultation appointment with a board-certified doctor. The doctor can perform a thorough examination of the person to see if he, or she, is healthy enough to undergo EMSCULPT cosmetic fat reduction.
The doctor can also set realistic expectations for the patient and let the person know how much fat can reduced or eliminated by the treatment. Patients that have realistic expectations entering an EMSCULPT treatment are less likely to be surprised or disappointed by the final results. They will also be prepared with the information they need to maintain the final results. The best types of patients for cosmetic fat reduction treatments are the ones that are knowledgeable and do not enter a treatment unaware of what is expected of them to achieve and maintain the desired results.
