Unlike other body contouring devices that help get rid of fat cells, EMSCULPT sculpts abs and butt through serious muscle toning.
“It’s not just about fat,” is the motto for this new body contouring device that’s taking North America by storm.
In the beauty world of body contouring, you can either freeze, zap, massage or burn away fat cells through many innovative procedures (hello, Coolsculpting, Sculpture, Exilis and Vanquish).
But while most of these non-invasive procedures help get rid of thin layers of excess fat (you know, the stubborn kind that just won’t go away with diet and exercise), none of them really address muscle toning.
That’s until BTL, the makers of medical body sculpting devices such as BTL Vanquish Me and Exilis Ultra 360, created Emsculpt. The new body contouring treatment has given many patients toned abs and serious butt lifts through intense muscle stimulation.
Emsculpt is the only procedure right now on the market to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their body. In addition, Emsculpt creates the world’s first non-invasive buttock toning procedure.
How does Emsculpt work?
Emsculpt tones and strengthens abdominal and gluteal muscles effortlessly and pain-free by using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, The non-invasive technology induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable
When exposed to supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such
According to BTL’s website, “the treatment time is 30 minutes, with a minimum of four sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart.” According to testimonials, the procedure feels like an intense workout while you lie down.
“You begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.”
Review: I tried the treatment at SpaMedica.com in Toronto to help boost muscle definition in my ab area. If you’re used to feeling sore after a hard, ab workout, that’s basically what this procedure feels like. The intensity varies on your level of comfort. I chose the highest level for maximum effect. I wanted to feel my abs contracting and getting a strong workout!
I can say that I felt comfortable while doing it but it depends on your tolerance level. After four sessions, I began to see more definition in my mid-section. After a total of eight, 30-minute sessions, I saw more definition in my upper ab area, which I was very pleased with.
Keep in mind, this is to help you work your muscles and give you a stronger core, and help you to get rid of fat by building muscle. It’s not a fat zapper or a miracle worker but it’s a great procedure to help you gain muscle strength and more definition. I would definitely do it again.
Check your local med-spas if they provide Emsculpt in your area.
