Looking good and feeling good go hand-in-hand regardless of our age. Part of looking our best is maintaining the body’s slim figure. However, even when we are at an ideal body weight for our frame, a lack of muscle tone can make us look less than ideal. Toning muscles has historically taken a considerable amount of effort. Things haven’t changed in terms of the value of exercise. What has changed is the speed at which certain muscle groups can be toned by incorporating sophisticated technology. In our Louisville practice, more patients are turning to EMSculpt to jump-start their future fitness.
EMSculpt is a type of non-invasive body contouring that differs from any other technique available at the moment. While many other technologies are used to reduce fat and tighten the skin, EMSculpt has been developed for muscle-tightening at the deepest levels.
What EMSculpt Is and What It Does
EMSculpt is an FDA-approved device that forces deep muscle contractions using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology. The electromagnetic field created in the supramaximal layer of muscle tissue stimulates contractions that far exceed what one can achieve in the gym. This not only firms the muscles but increases the metabolism of fat cells in the treatment area. Fat-burning and muscle-toning occur simultaneously in a short, thirty-minute session.
Currently, EMSculpt can be conducted on the abdomen and buttocks. Treatment is well-tolerated by patients even though the contractions that occur are equivalent to approximately 20,000 crunches or squats. After treatment, muscles are expected to feel sore for a short time, similar to recovery from a good workout.
Benefits of EMSculpt include:
- The FDA-approved device has a high rate of safety and efficacy.
- Treatment is noninvasive. Energy is delivered via applicators that match the size of the treatment area. Applicators can sit on top of clothing.
- Results can be long-lasting with either touch-up treatments or regular exercise.
- Gradually occurring muscle tone looks completely natural because it is.
