Are you struggling with love handles that just won’t go away, no matter how many ab workouts and special diets you try? Those pesky areas of extra fat on the sides of your waist can be difficult to get rid of, but EmSculpt Dallas treatments at Ver Halen Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery in Colleyville, TX, can give you a sleek, muscular abdominal area that you can be proud of. Best of all, these non-surgical treatments involve no downtime.
What Is EmSculpt?
This body contouring treatment helps you build and tone muscle and get rid of pockets of unwanted fat. During your treatments, external panels are used to direct high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy toward the area of concern. This energy triggers rapid contractions in the muscle, much like the type of contractions your body experiences during a rigorous workout.
During a 30-minute treatment, your body will experience 20,000 muscle contractions, which is the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches or lunges. Even though you’ll recline comfortably during treatment and won’t break a sweat, your body will think it’s been through a rigorous workout, and you’ll see the results that come from that type of intense exercise. Most patients achieve optimal results with a series of four treatments, each of which is scheduled two to three days apart.
Does It Really Work on Love Handles?
Yes. This treatment system is particularly effective on the abdominal and flank area, which makes it an excellent solution if you’re looking to blast away stubborn love handles. Patients also use this treatment to sculpt and lift the buttocks, tone their arms and calves, and improve the look of the thighs. Because this treatment system builds muscles, it can be used on just about any muscular part of the body.
Why Are Love Handles So Stubborn?
The fat that accumulates on the hips or around the belly can be difficult to shake. In both men and women, the hips and thighs tend to be one of the first places fat is deposited. And even though you may be dieting, exercising, and taking other steps to shape up and get rid of excess weight, the hips and thighs tend to be one of the last places on the body to shed extra fat.
That’s why EmSculpt, which allows you to target where you want to get rid of extra fat and build muscle, is such a game-changer. This treatment allows you to take control of your silhouette and the way it looks.
What Is Treatment Like?
These treatments are completely painless and noninvasive. We recommend that you come to your treatments wearing clothing that is comfortable and loose. This makes it easier for us to position the panels in a way that addresses your area of concern. You may feel a vibration deep inside as your muscles contract in response to treatment, but this won’t be an uncomfortable sensation. Most patients spend their time in treatment reading or relaxing.
We have two different applicators, which makes it possible to treat two different areas of the body at the same time. And once your treatment is over, you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule. Your muscles may be sore the next day, much as they would be after a tough workout, but you’ll be well on your way to a new, leaner you.
How Much Muscle Will I Build?
Studies have shown that patients who undergo this treatment see an average 16 percent increase in muscles and an average 19 percent reduction in fat. And because your body will be leaner and more muscular after treatment, your metabolism will likely increase, making it easier for you to burn calories and stay in shape going forward.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Most of our patients notice some improvement in their body right away, but your results will continue to develop in the three months following your treatment series. The gradual way that your results develop ensures that you’ll never look as though you suddenly went and had a cosmetic treatment performed. Instead, your body will gradually become leaner and more muscular over a period of weeks, much as it would if you had been successfully dieting and exercising.
Will My Results Be Permanent?
Some patients can maintain their results long-term through regular exercise and a careful diet. Other patients schedule optional maintenance sessions every three to six months.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You’re Looking for a Tuneup
The best candidates for this treatment have bodies that are in pretty good shape and are not far over their goal weight. This generally means having a body mass index of 30 or lower. These are patients who simply need a little help toning up and slimming down areas of stubborn fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise.
Getting those small problem spots under control can give you the sleek, muscular, fit physique you’ve been working toward. You’ll look great, and you’ll feel even better.
You Want To Build Strength
This treatment bolsters the strength of your core, which can improve your posture and alleviate back pain. And if you’re a regular at the gym, building your strength can help take your workouts to the next level. Some athletes even turn to these treatments as a way of rebuilding muscles that have been weakened by an injury.
Although EmSculpt Dallas should not be viewed as a replacement for exercise, it does something that routine gym workouts can’t accomplish. These treatments can comprehensively stimulate all of the muscles in the targetted area, something that weightlifting and exercise alone can’t do.
You Don’t Have Metal Implants in the Treatment Area
The non-invasive nature of this treatment means that it’s suitable for just about anyone. But because the device used involves a magnet, this treatment is not recommended for those who have a metal implant in the area being addressed. Patients should also not be pregnant.
You Can Stick With Healthy Habits
Patients who have healthy lifestyle habits usually see the best results from this treatment and are the most successful at maintaining their results long-term. Eating healthfully, exercising regularly, and refraining from smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are all good steps to take.
You Want a Non-Invasive Option
If you’re interested in improving your body, but you can’t afford to take a lot of time off of work, this treatment system may be the perfect option for you. The 30-minute sessions can be easily worked into a busy schedule, and you won’t have to worry about needles, anesthesia, incisions, or a period of recovery. This is a convenient way of sculpting your body.
You’re Not Looking To Achieve Significant Weight Loss
The success of this treatment has to do with its ability to improve your overall physique by taming the small problem areas that have been holding you back. It is not a weight loss solution, and if shedding pounds is your primary goal, you may be best served with a traditional diet and exercise program.
For some patients looking to lose a large amount of weight, bariatric surgery is also an option.
How Does This Differ From Other Body Sculpting Treatments?
There are several non-invasive body sculpting systems on the market, each of which works in a slightly different way to break down targeted fat deposits. EmSculpt Dallas, however, is the only treatment available that both eradicate fat and builds muscle. That means this treatment system won’t just slim down your body, it will also help you develop a fit, muscular physique. Some patients even develop six-pack abs for the first time.
EmSculpt Dallas is also one of the only ways to get rid of visceral fat, which is the fat that is stored in the abdominal cavity near organs like the liver, intestines, and stomach. Visceral fat can increase your risk of certain health problems.
Can This Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Yes, patients often opt to combine this treatment with others to fully address their cosmetic concerns. Patients with loose skin, for example, sometimes benefit from incorporating Pelleve treatments into their program. During your initial consultation, we’ll talk with you about your aesthetic concerns and goals and design a treatment plan just for you.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost of a series of four treatments is usually somewhere around $3,000.
Will I Have Sagging Skin After Treatment?
Sagging skin is not a problem after this treatment. The amount of fat that is lost as a result of this treatment is usually small enough that your skin can easily conform to the body’s new shape.
Can It Help With Cellulite?
Cellulite develops when fat builds up around the fibrous bands that latch the skin to the underlying muscle. As fat cells build up, they put pressure on the bands, causing the surface of the skin to become dimpled and rumpled in appearance. Although EmSculpt Dallas can whittle down fat deposits, it is not generally considered to be a cellulite solution. But our practice offers Cellfina, a minimally invasive cellulite treatment.
How Does This Differ From Liposuction?
Liposuction, which is also offered by our practice, can be used to remove a larger amount of unwanted fat, but it does not help build a patient’s muscle mass. Liposuction, which involves removing fat through a small tube inserted into the body through an incision, is also a more invasive treatment that requires anesthesia and a period of recovery. One of the reasons EmSculpt Dallas is so popular is that it is convenient and much gentler on the patient than liposuction.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes. This treatment system was approved by the FDA for purposes of both burning fat and building muscle mass. It has been widely and safely used on patients with all skin types and tones.
Is It an Option for Both Men and Women?
Yes. Even though men and women have different body types and tend to carry different types of fat, this treatment works well for both genders.
