What is EMSCULPT®
How EMSCULPT® Works?
The main benefit of EMSCULPT® for your arms is that it burns fat in your while also building up muscle. Traditional methods of arm contouring involve a complex surgery that causes a visible scar. With EMSCULPT®, there are no incisions needed and no downtime, so you are free to go about your day. You will notice results within a few weeks of the treatment. Your arms will begin to get that toned, sculpted look as if you have hit the gym every single day.
EMSCULPT® studies have shown that it leads to:
- 4% decrease in subcutaneous fat
- Average of 16% increase in muscle mass
- A 96% patient satisfaction rate
Am I a good candidate for EMSCULPT®?
Anyone who wants to strengthen their abdominal, buttock or thigh muscles can benefit from the EMSCULPT® procedure. The best candidates, who are most likely to achieve visible, satisfying results, are of normal weight, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet.
What does it feel like?
The EMSCULPT® procedure feels like an intensive workout, as your muscles are undergoing a vigorous series of contractions every few minutes for a total of 30 minutes. There is also a prickling sensation during the treatment.
Is there any downtime?
EMSCULPT® is non-invasive and requires no recovery time or any pre/post treatment preparation or downtime.
How soon will I see results?
The muscles treated will feel stronger with each treatment, with increased muscle mass resulting about 2-4 weeks after the 4 treatment series. Improvement of the overlying fat is appreciable by about 3 months after the series is completed. We recommend a good exercise regimen to maintain results. Many individuals find EMSCULPT® treatments at 6-month intervals are useful to maintain results.
How long does it last?
Improved muscle tone lasts at least 6 months but longer if you exercise regularly. The fat loss in the abdomen area is thought to be long term due to fat cell destruction.
