It is the dead of winter in Ohio, so it is easy to feel like you need that extra layer of fat to keep you warm when the lake effect snows hit Cleveland. But the problem is you don’t like the way it looks. Everyone throws around the idea of exercising more and eating better as their New Year’s resolutions. Those are worthy goals and definitely the right thing to do for your long-term health and happiness. What about right now? The results of those things can take weeks, even months! When you want weight loss, what can you do that will have quick, lasting results? A newer body contouring treatment called Emsculpt® might be an option!
One big thing about improving your body is that it is not just about fat! You can lose fat, but you’ll still look out of shape if you have nothing underneath. If you are looking for improved visible muscle mass in areas like buttocks, abdominal muscles, and arms, then you will benefit from the fast results of Emsculpt®. It is also an excellent non-invasive alternative to butt lifts and bat wing reductions.
How does it work? The non-invasive HIFEM® procedure induces powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. When exposed to strong contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme conditions. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure, resulting in muscle building and sculpting your body.
What is the treatment like? A complete Emsculpt® treatment will consist of four 30-minute sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart over two weeks. Since it is a non-invasive procedure, there is no recovery time or pre/post-treatment preparation. You may feel soreness equivalent to muscle soreness after an intense workout. The great news is results are noticeable shortly after treatment! Maximum results are seen 2-4 weeks after the last session and will continue improving for several weeks.
How long do the results last? The result duration of Emsculpt® depends on your lifestyle. You will retain the sculpted muscle if you maintain your newly formed muscles through exercise and core training. Patients who resume their daily routine without upkeep will need to return as results diminish. However, Emsculpt® maintenance procedures are less often if the previous muscle remains.
