EMSCULPT® Q & A
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is the only procedure that helps build muscle, while also reducing fat, to leave areas more toned and sculpted. Areas of treatment include: abdominals, buttocks, biceps and triceps.
How does EMSCULPT work?
EMSCULPT uses proprietary non-invasive technology called HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) to induce powerful muscle contractions that would not be achievable through regular exercise as it induces contractions of muscles that cannot be voluntarily controlled. The HIFEM technology induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per 30-minute session (that is the only equivalent of 20,000 full contraction crunches or squats in 1 session). When your muscles contract at this level, they adapt to the extreme by remodeling their very structure. This remodeling is what builds the muscle, firms, tones and sculpts the affected area. When it comes to fat, EMSCULPT causes these cells to implode, releasing their contents as free fatty acid.
What makes EMSCULPT unique?
Emsculpt is unlike other procedures because of its ability to not just address burning fat, but building muscle - resulting in a more toned, firmed and sculpted body. These procedures have been shown to cause an average of 19 percent fat loss after 4 treatments while building muscle mass by an average of 16 percent. There has even been a study in which EMSCULPT was shown to reduce diastasis recti (the abdominal separation that occurs commonly in pregnancy) by an average of 10 percent.
Who is a good candidate for EMSCULPT treatments?
While anyone can benefit from EMSCULPT treatments, ideal candidates are relatively fit people looking for extra definition in their abdominal, buttock, and thigh areas. Those with more body fat can still benefit from EMSCULPT treatments but will not see a huge difference in their physical appearance. If you are an active person but have stubborn areas that are resistant to toning, you would be a great candidate for EMSCULPT treatments.
EMSCULPT treatments are also good for athletes recovering from injury since it is a quick and efficient method for strengthening large muscle groups.
How many EMSCULPT treatments will I need?
Though the effects of a single EMSCULPT treatment will often be noticeable, 4 sessions of 30 minutes scheduled 2-3 days apart is recommended for maximum results, Dr. Fatakhov will work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.
What do EMSCULPT treatments feel like?
Most patients have described their EMSCULPT treatments as feeling like intense workouts, electric-like tingles, and sharper zaps. During the treatments you will be laying down. Dr. Fatakhov takes every precaution to ensure that you stay as relaxed as possible.
What results can I expect post treatment?
After the first treatment, many patients begin to feel and see tangible results. After the first two weeks, patients have reported looking like they have been completing weeks of intense workouts. Two to four weeks following your final treatment, you can expect to see toned, learner areas with notably less fat. Results and patient experience can vary.
How long do the results last?
The benefits of EMSCULPT continue to show for several weeks following the treatments but the length of this time depends on how active your lifestyle is. Some have EMSCULPT procedures and continue to maintain their newly toned bodies with regular exercise. Others receive EMSCULPT treatments with a plan to return for more treatments as maintenance.
Are there potential side effects of EMSCULPT?
The most commonly reported side effect is a minor soreness post treatment. Because EMSCULPT contractions can actually clear the lactic acid that causes post-workout soreness, this side effect is usually minimal. There have also been reports of fatigue, not unlike like that felt after completing a strenuous workout. Because the side effects are mild, returning to regularly scheduled activeness can happen immediately post treatment.
