Have you heard about Emsculpt, the amazing body sculpting treatment capable of slimming down areas of unwanted fat while also building and toning muscle? Patients at Ver Halen Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery in Southlake, TX, ask for this treatment because it’s non-invasive, convenient, and can noticeably improve the contours of the body.
How Many Times Can You Do Emsculpt?
We recommend a series of four treatments, each of which is scheduled two or three days apart, for most patients. Occasionally, the initial series may involve six treatments. Results tend to plateau after four or six treatments, so we usually don’t encourage patients to schedule any more than that as part of the initial series. Scheduling a maintenance treatment every three or four months, as needed, can help preserve your results.
What Is Emsculpt?
This body sculpting system uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to remove pinchable fat and build muscle tone in the belly, buttocks, arms, and legs. Targeted energy pulses, delivered by an external device, trigger muscle contractions in the treatment area. Those contractions are much like the contractions muscles experience during rigorous exercise.
A single treatment causes 20,000 muscle contractions, which is the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches, squats, curls, or lunges! Even though you’ll be resting comfortably during your appointments, your body will undergo the natural improvement that would come from that level of activity. This treatment produces supra-maximal muscle contractions, which actually exceed the results achieved through regular exercise.
What Is the Treatment Experience Like?
Treatment takes about 30 minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia, needles, or gel. We’ll simply place the treatment system’s paddles against your skin to direct the electromagnetic energy. This system has two different applicators, so we’ll be able to address more than one part of the body at once if you wish.
Although you’ll be able to feel your muscles contracting, you won’t experience any discomfort. After treatment, you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule.
What Type of Results Can I Expect?
This treatment permanently kills unwanted fat cells and builds muscle tone. Scientific studies have found that this treatment can build muscle by an average of 16 percent and reduce fat by an average of 19 percent. Patients often find that because their bodies are leaner and more muscular after treatment, their metabolism is higher, making it easier to stay in shape.
You’ll see improvement in your body within a few days and results will continue to develop for up to three months.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The pinchable fat that this treatment system gets rid of will be gone for good, but it’ll be up to you to maintain the newly defined muscle tone. Patients are frequently able to maintain their results by continuing to eat right and work out, but you’ll also have the option of scheduling occasional maintenance treatments.
What Type of Fat Does This Target?
This is one of the only cosmetic treatments to tackle visceral fat, which is the fat that develops around organs in the abdomen. Visceral fat is important to address because it has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions. Many other body contouring systems focus instead on the superficial fat that is just beneath the skin and poses less of a health risk.
How Can This Be Used To Improve My Body?
Develop Muscle Mass
This treatment increases muscle mass and definition while also whittling away fat, which together reshapes the body to achieve a leaner, fitter physique. Male patients who use this treatment on their abdomen are sometimes even able to develop six-pack abs for the first time in their life.
Lift the Butt
When performed on the buttocks, this treatment can lift and tone the derriere. Aging, a lack of exercise, and other issues can contribute to a loss of muscle mass in the buttocks. This can lead to a derriere that appears flat or sagging. But Emsculpt can function as a non-surgical butt lift and give you a firmer, more shapely bottom.
Tone the Arms and Legs
Do you shy away from shorts and sleeveless tops because your arms and legs lack muscle tone or are too heavy? This treatment can be used to strengthen and tone the limbs, activating muscles 360 degrees around the arms, thighs, or calves. It can reduce fat deposits on the limbs while also increasing muscle definition.
Strengthen the Core
This treatment can also improve the all-important core area by strengthening the back, abdominal, and pelvic muscles. A stronger core can minimize back pain and improve your posture. It also helps you get the most out of yoga and other types of exercise workouts. Individuals with stronger cores are also better able to avoid exercise-related injuries.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Patients should be in good general physical and emotionally health. This treatment is suitable for most patients, with the exception of those who are pregnant or who have metal implants in the area being targeted.
You’re in Pretty Good Shape
The best candidates are already in pretty good physical condition, with a body mass index below 30, but need help shaping up a stubborn problem spot or two. This treatment can help them refine certain parts of their body and achieve a leaner, fitter physique. Because patients will need to maintain the muscle definition this treatment creates, it’s also important that individuals be committed to a healthy lifestyle long-term.
You’re Not Looking To Lose Weight
This treatment can improve the look and shape of your body, but it’s not a weight-loss solution. The success of this treatment lies in its ability to sculpt the body, taming areas of unwanted fullness while also developing muscle definition. While it’s possible you may lose a couple of pounds in the process, you won’t see the number on the scale drop significantly. If weight loss is what you’re interested in, a diet and exercise program may better serve you.
You Want a Convenient Option
If you’re eager to get your body in shape, but you can’t set aside time for recovery and don’t want to fuss with the hassles of an invasive treatment, Emsculpt may be the perfect solution. A series of these easy treatments, each of which can be completed during your lunch hour, can quickly deliver the results you want.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can This Treatment Be Paired With Other Services?
Yes. Although this treatment system is highly effective, patients often combine it with other services to fully address cosmetic issues in the area of concern. Skin tightening treatments are frequently paired with this approach to body contouring. And patients looking to shed more fat fat sometimes combine this treatment with liposuction.
How Much Does This Treatment Cost?
An initial series of four treatments typically cost about $3,000. We offer a variety of financing options.
Is This a Substitute for Exercise?
This treatment isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, but it can supplement a healthy lifestyle, helping you reach your cosmetic goals. The supramaximal muscle contractions Emsculpt triggers work wonders because they stimulate every muscle in the treatment area, giving you results beyond what can be achieved through regular exercise.
Will This Help Resolve Cellulite?
While this treatment shrinks fat cells, a contributor to cellulite, it is not considered to be a cellulite solution. If you’re concerned about cellulite, our practice offers Cellfina, an FDA-approved treatment that can successfully tackle dimpled, rumpled skin.
Does This Treatment Result in Sagging Skin?
This treatment eliminates a small amount of fat, which is not enough to leave behind sagging, excess skin.
How Does This Compare to Liposuction?
Emsculpt typically gets rid of less fat than liposuction does. But it offers something lipo does not: the ability to build and define muscle mass. Emsculpt also offers the advantage of being non-invasive, which makes it an easy and convenient option for many patients.
If you’re unsure about which treatment is the better option for shaping up your body, we can make a recommendation after talking with you and evaluating your areas of concern. For some patients, a combination of the two treatments offers the best results.
Are You Ready To Get Your Body in Shape?
If you’re ready to refine the look of your body by getting rid of fat and toning up muscles, consider Emsculpt. For most patients, a series of four easy treatments is all it takes to get back on track. Call Ver Halen Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery in Southlake, TX, and schedule your consultation today!
