A lot has changed. While liposuction was once virtually the only option to get rid of excess fat beyond natural weight loss, the latest aesthetics technologies give people more choices than ever before. Even more excitingly, some of the leading weight-loss options can banish unwanted fat with treatments that are noninvasive and come with zero downtime.
To give our patients access to those kinds of treatments, Cindi Kerzie, RN, CMLT, and our team offer EMSCULPT® here at Stellar Skin and Laser in Tempe, Arizona. But EMSCULPT isn’t technically a weight-loss treatment. It’s designed to transform your body through muscle-strengthening, and weight loss comes as a welcome side effect.
If you’re interested in getting a more toned, leaner physique, here’s what you should know about EMSCULPT.
Build muscle and tone your body
EMSCULPT uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions. These contractions work similarly to the ones you produce in the gym when performing bicep curls, squats, situps, and a range of other strengthening exercises.
The difference lies in the rapidness of those contractions. EMSCULPT can stimulate thousands of contractions in an extremely short period of time. Most EMSCULPT treatments take about 30 minutes. During that time, your muscles endure much more than they would at the gym, all while you relax comfortably. And that’s enough to deliver significant muscle toning and strengthening.
In fact, EMSCULPT is FDA-approved to build and tone the muscles in your:
As a result, EMSCULPT can deliver body contouring to help you toward your ideal shape.
All this said, while this treatment’s primary objective is to tighten and tone your muscles, EMSCULPT is particularly exciting because it can deliver weight loss in the process.
Lose fat, too
While EMSCULPT delivers muscle strengthening, it also stimulates fat loss. Recent studies that focused on EMSCULPT for the abdominal area found that people lost an average of 23% of their subcutaneous fat — the layer of fat stored between the skin and muscles — and saw a 1.7-inch reduction in their waist size three months after their treatment.
In other words, while EMSCULPT’s primary purpose is to contour your body via muscle toning, it can also deliver weight loss. And that makes it exciting, because it can propel you toward your body goals by helping you build muscle and lose fat.
Generally, people see the best results with at least four 30-minute EMSCULPT sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart. Talk with us about your body goals so we can develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
