EmSculpt® (Nonsurgical Body Contouring)
The first of its kind, EmSculpt is a nonsurgical treatment that defines muscle and burns fat in your buttocks or abdomen for a tauter, smoother appearance. The technology utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to deliver pulses deep into the muscles causing contractions, which help to create new muscle fibers much faster than exercise alone. In fact, one 30-minute treatment can produce as many as 20,000 muscle contractions, affecting the body on a cellular level and stimulating their growth. Simultaneously, fatty acids are released and fat cells damaged, resulting in more defined muscles.
Who is a Candidate?
Just about anyone who wishes to have a more noticeable definition in hard-to-tone areas, such as the abdomen and buttocks, are candidates for EmSculpt. However, patients with low body fat percentages who are fit and active will enjoy the most dramatic results. Patients who have not reached their goal weight may not receive optimal results as body fat can prevent the technology from effectively targeting the muscles. EmSculpt is a fantastic option for patients who are not candidates for liposuction or CoolSculpting due to low body fat percentages.
During your consultation at Level Up Med Spa, we will discuss your aesthetic goals, assess your body, and create a treatment plan. In some cases, EmSculpt can be performed on the same day as your consultation. If our team feels that you are not a good candidate for EmSculpt, we can help you determine which procedures are most likely to help you achieve your target look and help you schedule your treatments.
Your EmSculpt procedure will last about 30 minutes per treatment area. To begin, you will lie on a treatment table and the EmSculpt paddle-like applicator will be strapped onto your abdomen or buttocks. For your first session, the technician will begin with EmSculpt on its lowest setting. HIFEM energy will target your muscles, and you will begin to feel as though you are in the midst of a fierce workout. Many equate the sensation to a deep vibration. For optimal results, the intensity will be increased as you feel comfortable.
What to Expect
You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure with no downtime needed. Expect to feel sore for a couple of days, much like you would following a rigorous workout. Many patients enjoy results after their first session while the most dynamic results are achieved in patients who attend four sessions over a two-week window. Patients should commit to a healthy diet and exercise routine to protect and prolong their results.
