Many people want to achieve the appearance of a sculpted body that is toned and contoured in its overall look. The appearance of a sculpted body can be achieved by going to the gym on a regular basis and spending hours working out to gain the desired final results. Other people try to find a less demanding method to get the look they desire by searching for a shortcut that doesn’t involve workouts. In addition, they want to find an easier way to reduce or eliminate unwanted fat that is present on the body. To achieve the look they desire, many patients are now turning to EMSculpt.
EMSculpt is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that is performed to contour certain areas of the body such as the abdomen and buttocks as well as the thighs and triceps. The EMSculpt device works to build muscle, as well as reduce fat at the same time, in order to help patients achieve their desired results. The EMSculpt device produces energy and the energy creates a series of contractions in the muscles in order to stimulate the targeted muscles.
Using technology known as HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic), EMSculpt takes about 30-minutes to perform as the energy is focused on the targeted area on the body. In general, the EMSculpt treatment is the equivalent of performing 20,000 squats or crunches. Although patients will see some results after the first treatment, it will take four or more treatments to see the desired final results.
In general, the treatment build new muscle mass on the body of the patient and this also provides an increase in muscle tone and definition to the treated area. Plus, EMSculpt increases the amount of fat metabolism in the body so the patient will enjoy a greater amount of destroyed fat.
When it comes to having an EMSculpt treatment, the following patients are ideal candidates:
When it comes to the cost of having EMSculpt, patients will have to pay for the treatment on their own as it is not considered to be a medically necessary treatment. The cost of EMSculpt also depends on the number of treatments that are needed to achieve the desired results, the part of the country where the treatment is performed and any fees that are charged by the facility or the doctor. Overall, the price of EMSculpt costs in the range of $3500-$4500 for a series of four treatments.
When it comes to undergoing an EMSculpt treatment, there is little to no downtime after the procedure. In addition, patients will not need to take any kind of medication for pain or wear any bandages after having EMSculpt. Patients might feel some soreness for a few days after the treatment but this soreness will not be long lasting. Patients can also return to work immediately after having EMSculpt.
The final results will be visible about two to four weeks after the treatment. Patients do need to be aware of the fact that the results are not permanent. In order to maintain the results, patients will need to exercise on a regular basis as well as follow a healthy lifestyle.
One of the reasons that EMSculpt is so popular is that there are no risks involved in having the treatment. Patients can have the treatment and go back to work knowing that they do not need to worry about any sort of risks or complications occurring immediately after the procedure.
Before the final decision is made to have an EMSculpt treatment, patients should schedule a consultation appointment with a board-certified doctor that has experience in performing EMSculpt procedures. The doctor will need to perform a thorough examination of the patient to make sure the person is healthy enough to have the treatment while also having the correct BMI (as shown above). It is important for the patient to have realistic expectations when it comes to EMSculpt because many people are under the mistaken impression that all cosmetic procedures provide permanent results. Realistic expectations are important so the patient will not be surprised or disappointed by the final results that appear after two to four weeks. A doctor that is experienced in performing EMSculpt can show patients “before and after” photos to give them a better idea about the results that can be achieved by undergoing EMSculpt. A patient that is armed with the proper knowledge about having a skin rejuvenation procedure like EMSculpt is ideally prepared to have a procedure while also enjoying its results.
