Even after achieving an ideal, healthy weight through diet and exercise, some people may still not be completely satisfied with the way their body looks. This is when a non-invasive procedure, such as EmSculpt, can help. These procedures help to define the shape of the body, creating a more flattering, fitter appearance.
What is EmSculpt?
EmSculpt is a non-invasive procedure that uses focused electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions. This helps to build muscles in the target area, and these muscles use the nearby fat cells as energy. Overall, EmSculpt helps to reduce fat while increasing muscle tone.
How Long Do EmSculpt Results Last?
The muscles gained after an EmSculpt procedure usually last for about six months. Maintenance EmSculpt sessions can help to retain these muscles. In addition, a frequent exercise schedule and a healthy diet can increase the lifespan of the results.
Do You Lose Weight with EmSculpt?
EmSculpt, which is a common procedure performed by Michael A. Persky, M.D., F.A.C.S., can often lead to a reduction in fat, thanks to an increase in muscles. However, this usually means that patients can expect a fitter, more toned body but will not experience too much actual weight loss.
Is EmSculpt the Same as CoolSculpting?
EmSculpt and CoolSculpting are slightly different procedures. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, which the body then discards. EmSculpt stimulates muscle growth. These muscles then consume the fat cells as energy.
Which is Better? EmSculpt vs CoolSculpting
EmSculpt and CoolSculpting treat different areas, so it’s difficult to say whether one is better than the other. EmSculpt can be used to tone the buttocks and abdomen, while CoolSculpting can be used in a number of areas, including sensitive areas such as under the chin. CoolSculpting is excellent at removing fat, but it doesn’t tone or sculpt the muscles like EmSculpt.
Is EmSculpt Covered by Insurance?
EmSculpt is not covered by insurance.
How Painful is EmSculpt?
EmSculpt is not invasive, so there’s no pain involved in the treatment. Some people experience a pulling sensation or the feeling of strong muscle contractions, but these should not be painful. In addition, the energy level being used can be adjusted to suit each patient.
Who is a Good Candidate for EmSculpt?
EmSculpt is a great option for people who have worked to attain a healthy, fit body shape but can’t achieve the sculpted look they desire. This is also an excellent option for women who have stretched abdominal muscles due to childbirth.
Good candidates for EmSculpt should be healthy overall and should have realistic expectations about the results they can expect.
How Many Sessions of EmSculpt Do You Need?
The number of EmSculpt sessions needed depends on the patient. These sessions last for 30 minutes, and patients will require a minimum of four sessions. The sessions will occur over a two week period. Many patients choose to have maintenance sessions performed after their initial treatment.
How Much Does an EmSculpt Session Cost?
EmSculpt sessions each cost between $750 and $1500. The exact price varies depending on what areas will be targeted, what the desired results are, and the age of the patient.
What Are the Side Effects of EmSculpt?
The only side effect of EmSculpt is muscle soreness, which should dissipate shortly after the treatment.
Can You Workout After EmSculpt?
Because EmSculpt is non-invasive, patients can return to working out the day after the treatment. However, it’s often best to focus on muscle groups away from the treatment area.
Can You Do EmSculpt After CoolSculpting?
EmSculpt can be performed after CoolSculpting and can actually make the CoolSculpting results last longer.
