Imagine if you could lose those stubborn fat and build muscle simultaneously, without breaking a sweat? Emsculpt by BTL can help you do just that by helping you target multiple body areas — no gym memberships required!
What Is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a cutting-edge muscle building treatment device that is proven to contour the body – taking body-contouring treatments to a whole new level. It’s also the first Health Canada & FDA-cleared device designed to both reduce fat and build muscle mass at the same time. Emsculpt is pain-free, has no downtime and is a non-invasive way to redefine the body benefitting both regular individuals looking to stay fit and pro athletes alike.
How Does EMSCULPT work?
Emscuplt uses High Intensity, Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, which emits magnetic energy that produces “supramaximal” muscle contractions (contractions not achievable through voluntary muscle action).
The procedure involves sending electrical currents to targeted muscle areas activating muscles to contract as they would during strenuous exercise. Emsculpt uses a series of varying patterns of muscle contractions during the treatment to stimulate muscle work beyond what you can achieve with strength training alone.
Your body is made up of up to 40% muscle. When exposed to these contractions, these muscles undergo a deep remodelling of their inner structure. This process increases muscle volume and density while promoting the breakdown of fat cells as a bonus.
What to Expect During an Emsculpt Session
During the treatment, all you have to do is lie back, relax, and let the Emsculpt device work its wonders. One should not feel any discomfort or pain and you’ll be able to resume your regular activities right away.
Recent studies show that Emsculpt can give you the following results:
19% reduction in fat within the treated area
11% reduction in the separation of your abdominal muscle from pregnancy (diastasis recti)
16% increase in your lean muscle
A reduction / cinching of the waistline.
What Specific Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With Emsculpt?
The Emsculpt BTL device is the only non-invasive device approved for a Butt Lift. It is very popular for treating the abdominal area because of fat metabolism and increased muscle tone. If you want to build biceps without weights, then this body treatment is for you. The areas well-suited for the Emsculpt treatment may include:
Additionally, EmSculpt can be combined with non-invasive fat removal treatments such as Exilis, CoolSculpting, and Vanquish to improve fat reduction. As for your buttocks, Ultherapy, Thermage, Exilis, or Fillers may also be combined with Emsculpt to smooth the area.
What Results Can Be Expected Following an Emsculpt Treatment?
BTL conducted 7 studies with over 200 participants who used Emsculpt on the abdomen and buttocks. Their studies show how effective the Emsculpt device is at dissolving fat and enhancing muscle mass. They also measured the muscle and fat using imaging (MRI studies and CT scans), comparing the pictures before and after the treatment, and measuring changes in the waistline measurements.
How Many Emsculpt Treatments Are Required?
One Emsculpt session is the equivalent of doing 20,000 sit-ups or squats. For optimal results, the procedure recommends 4 sessions, spaced 2 or 3 days apart, within 2 weeks. Based on clinical studies using Emsculpt on the buttocks and abdominal areas, you need one session every 3 to 6 months after the initial 4 sessions to maintain Emsculpt results.
Advantages of Emsculpt
In addition to body shaping and muscle building, the procedure has other advantages:
- Accelerates Gym Workout Results
Most of us have at least one body area that is slow to respond to a gym work out. Emsculpt offers a safe and reliable solution even when one is short on time, may have difficulty building muscle mass or is working through an injury.
- Quick, Lasting Results
One can expect to see early signs of defined toning, within the first 2 weeks. Emsculpt treatments typically include 4 sessions with better results after each visit — and these results last. You’ll still see the improvement for up to 6 months after your last session.
- Enhanced metabolism
The higher your metabolism is, the more calories you burn and the faster you lose the weight. Most patients experience increased fat metabolism which most certainly jumpstarts your journey to weight loss.
- Promotes Muscle Recovery
Injured athletes can bounce back to their regular activities faster. Emsculpt treatments help strengthen and rebuild your muscles after an injury. Besides quicker recovery time, the treatment also improves strength so you can train faster and more effectively.
- No Downtime
You can resume your normal routine immediately after a session with minimal discomfort. Some patients experience muscle soreness similar to that after intense workout in the days following an Emsculpt session. Fortunately, you can ease muscle tension by stretching.
- Completely Non-Invasive
Because the Emsculpt device uses electromagnetic pulses, the treatment requires no incisions. It has become a highly popular alternative to surgical procedures such as tummy tucks, butt implants, and liposuction since it offers the same result without the risk. It is also a painless procedure and does not require the use of anesthetics.
- Short Sessions
Each Emsculpt treatment lasts for just 30 minutes — that’s less time spent at the supermarket for your weekly grocery shopping. It’s extremely convenient and you can do it during lunch breaks or in between your errands.
Who Should Consider Emsculpt?
Unlike other body sculpting treatments that only target fat, Emsculpt is meant for people trying to build up their muscle mass. The resulting fat loss is merely a bonus.
The perfect candidates for Emsculpt are individuals who are at or close to their ideal weight. This is an excellent option for those looking for a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that gives them fast and significant results.
Moreover, those who undergo Emsculpt also need to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly and eating healthy are essential steps in sustaining the results of the treatment.
