For the past several years, CoolSculpting has been one of the leading body contouring treatments.
It suctions unwanted fat pockets into an applicator and then uses extremely cold temperatures to destroy adipose cells for a slimmer waistline.
While the treatment is non-surgical, some patients have reported skin tugging, burning, stinging, numbness, and bruising.
Others complain of less-than-optimal outcomes, which is likely due to the fact that CoolSculpting only addresses fat and does not impact muscle.
As a result, Emsculpt can help patients achieve a toned abdomen and lifted buttocks when current technologies have had limited sculpting effects and caused discomfort.
Here’s everything you need to know about this ground-breaking treatment.
What Are the Advantages of Emsculpt Over Coolsculpting and Other Body Contouring Procedures?
Unlike CoolSculpting, which uses cold temperatures, or SculpSure, which uses heat, Emsculpt employs a unique high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to eliminate subcutaneous fat and increase muscle mass.
During an Emsculpt treatment, this energy penetrates through the skin to initiate a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, which increase fat metabolism and strengthen muscles.
Best of all, this takes place without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
In fact, Emsculpt is completely non-invasive and each 30-minute treatment is pain-free.
Why Would Patients Want to Try Emsculpt?
In addition to destroying fat and building muscle for a defined abdomen, Emsculpt is the world’s first and only non-invasive butt lift.
It has also been shown to improve diastasis recti—separation of abdominal muscles—which often occurs after pregnancy or significant weight fluctuations.
Emsculpt also boasts a 96% patient satisfaction rating based on seven clinical studies with over 200 patients.
How Many Treatments Are Recommended?
For optimal sculpting effects, four Emsculpt sessions spaced two-to-three days apart is recommended.
Is There Any Downtime Associated With Emsculpt?
Patients do not need any downtime after an Emsculpt treatment and can return to all normal activities.
They may experience some soreness in the treatment area, similar to after an intense abdominal or gluteal workout. However, this sensation resolves within a day or two.
