You may be an excellent candidate for Emsculpt if you are troubled by excess fat and loose abdominal muscle tone. Likewise, if the backs of your arms are loose and saggy, this treatment can help you tighten and tone. The same goes for the thigh and buttocks area. The Emsculpt device has been designed to treat one or more of these areas in a quick session after which you don’t need to alter your normal activities. In addition to wanting to sculpt your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, calves, or backs of your arms, you will be a good candidate for Emsculpt by understanding how this technology works and how long it will take to achieve your desired outcome. Ideally, you will be committed to a healthy lifestyle that will promote your body transformation and also support your long-term results.
The use of high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology in the patented Emsculpt device causes muscles to contract in such rapid succession that there is no time for them to fully relax during the session. This rapid contraction stimulates both muscle toning and fat cell death called apoptosis. Essentially, Emsculpt works very similarly to the most aggressive workout you could imagine. It outdoes the toughest workout you could do in a single session at the gym, so does get results more quickly than you could expect otherwise. Still, because the goal is to naturally tighten, tone, and sculpt, it takes time for your body to transform. Usually, we see noticeable changes start to appear two to four weeks after the completion of a treatment program. By six weeks post-treatment, you can expect remarkable changes to be visible.
To get the best possible outcome from your Emsculpt Neo treatments, we may recommend that you come in for two to three sessions per week for at least two weeks. Depending on the extent of sculpting you want to achieve, we may recommend weekly sessions for as long as four weeks. The fact that we can customize Emsculpt Neo treatments is one more aspect of this technology that we appreciate! Once you have achieved your desired body contours through Emsculpt Neo, you can maintain them quite well with one to two touch-up sessions per year.
You do not have to change a thing about your normal exercise routine as you go through your Emsculpt treatment program! That is unless you don’t work out at all. To get the best results from your body contouring treatments, it is beneficial to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and also to stay well-hydrated. These three habits can boost your outcome and also help to prolong your results with minimal upkeep.
The Emsculpt Neo device targets fat cells using radiofrequency technology. The absorption of this energy into the fat cells causes them to die off. The nonviable fat cells get metabolized by the liver and flushed from the body. A series of Emsculpt Neo treatments can destroy up to 30 percent of the fat cells in the target area. That said, the goal of treatment is not to reduce your weight but to sculpt your body. We do not anticipate that you will notice a significant loss in weight after your treatment program. However, we do anticipate that your body will look leaner, firmer, and more contoured.
Your treatment sessions here at our Okatie, SC office should be quick and comfortable. You can expect to feel a warming sensation from the movement of your supramaximal muscles and the absorption of the radiofrequency energy into the layers of adipose tissue. This warming may get somewhat intense but should not hurt. The muscle contractions that occur during your treatment may also feel odd but not painful. These occur so deeply beneath the surface of your body that they may feel more like flutters or vibrations than the muscle contractions you feel when working out. After your session, your muscles may feel sore for a short time, but not so much so that you cannot work out or perform normal activities.
