With a hot Texas summer right around the corner, many people are trying to get their bodies swimsuit-ready. Diet and exercise are great first steps for creating a toned midsection, but sometimes your body needs a little boost.
If you’re looking for a nonsurgical way to break through a fitness plateau, EMSCULPT® is your answer. Our patients from Dallas, Plano, and beyond have enjoyed using the treatment to feel comfortable and confident in their bodies.
What is EMSCULPT? How does it work?
EMSCULPT is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that helps build and define muscle. It uses the power of HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) energy to trigger powerful muscle movements.
As the magnetic energy penetrates the skin, it induces thousands of supramaximal muscle contractions. These muscle contractions are similar, in concept, to your muscle effort during traditional exercise, but they are far more vigorous with HIFEM stimulation. Each time your muscles contract, they grow stronger. Eventually, the treated area becomes lean and toned.
EMSCULPT’s technology is special in that it promotes muscle growth while burning small amounts of fat simultaneously.
The treatment is approved by the FDA to improve abdominal muscle tone and sculpt the buttocks, and it’s cleared to improve the tone and firmness of arm, calf, and thigh muscles. In clinical evaluations, 85% of patients reported significant improvement in muscular toning and lifting.
Why is spring the best time for EMSCULPT?
Spring is the best season to begin EMSCULPT treatments because it gives your body enough time to build muscle. If you want to look your best by the time summer rolls around, start a few months ahead of schedule. Our practice recommends 4 treatment sessions over the course of a 2-week period for optimal results. You will see the biggest difference after 3 months, with continued improvement over a 6-month period.
How long do EMSCULPT results last?
Any muscle mass you gain during treatment will last for approximately 6 months. Much like any traditional exercise routine, you’ll need to continue a healthy lifestyle to maintain your look. We recommend maintenance sessions every 3 to 6 months if you want to stay in peak shape. When you come into our office, we’ll be happy to discuss a treatment plan to help you achieve your body contouring goals.
Can I combine other body contouring procedures with EMSCULPT?
Yes, EMSCULPT can easily be combined with other body contouring treatments. Your newly toned muscles will look especially defined when you pair EMSCULPT with fat reduction procedures. CoolSculpting® is an excellent nonsurgical option for slimming down “pinchable” areas of fat and Qwo® is the first and only injectable treatment for cellulite (in women’s buttocks). If you struggle with bumps, bulges, or dimples that just won’t go away, consider using a combination of these popular treatments together.
