EMSCULPT® – Builds Muscle & Reduces Fat
You work hard at your exercise routine and watch your diet, but you may still have areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Or perhaps, you simply don’t have the time or ability to work out enough on a regular basis to build muscle. EMSCULPT is the first and only technology that is able to reduce fat and build muscle in the abdomen simultaneously. Imagine doing 20,000 crunches or squats at the gym. This can be accomplished in one 30 minute session of EMSCULPT while you relax. The device can also be used for non-surgical buttock augmentation without reducing fat, but rather creating a firmer, more shapely buttock. EMSCULPT® may be used to enhance surgical procedures such as tummy tuck where stronger muscles are desired and with other non-surgical technologies such as CoolSculpting, Vanquish ME, Exilis Ultra, and Cellutone.
Dr. Ringler is very excited to be the first and only physician in Michigan to be able to offer EMSCULPT to his patients.
Who is a candidate for EMSCULPT?
Men and women of all ages who wish for a non-surgical alternative for building muscle and burning fat in the abdomen and reshaping their gluteal muscles are good candidates for EMSCULPT. The only contraindication are those individuals with pacemakers. It is not necessary to be within certain weight parameters to be a candidate for this treatment.
What happens during an EMSCULPT treatment?
EMSCULPT is an office procedure that is performed at the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery by one of our estheticians, Physician Assistants, or RNs. EMSCULPT uses two panels to deliver HIFEM magnetic field technology—it penetrates through your skin to impact fat as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per session, which are normally not achieved by voluntary muscle action. The contractions result in a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells, to provide energy to the muscle, while it strengthens and builds muscle. This is the only technology that destroys fat while simultaneously building muscle, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
Is the EMSCULPT procedure comfortable?
EMSCULPT produces muscle contractions that can be powerful, although most patients do not find them uncomfortable. Typically after 30 minutes, most patients wish they could continue their session! There is no downtime associated with EMSCULPT. The next day most patients report feeling like they’ve had a great workout with slight muscle soreness.
How many EMSCULPT treatments are required to see results?
You will begin to feel the results of your EMSCULPT treatment immediately. EMSCULPT begins to produce lasting results within 2-4 weeks following treatment sessions. Four treatments, two per week for two weeks in a row are required for maximal results. Results continue to be evident for about 1 year following treatment, Many patients opt to have one or two additional treatments during the year to maximize their result. One of the best things about this clinically-tested procedure is the consistency in its results. Patients can expect to build sufficient muscle tone and burn a noticeable amount of fat in problem areas.
Why would I want to try EMSCULPT?
This treatment is a complete game changer for the non-surgical industry. Past technologies for body-shaping worked through eliminating fat and circumferential reduction. The body consists of 35% muscle, 25% is fat, and 16% is skin.Until now, non-surgical body contouring options were not able to address muscle, which greatly affects the body’s contour. EMSCULPT goes beyond just waistline reduction and elimination of fat cells to provide a dual treatment to address both fat and muscle tone.
Many patients today seek a non-surgical alternative to the Brazilian Butt Lift, which despite its popularity, comes with fairly high risks. EMSCULPT provides a safe, natural alternative to a BBL that was not previously possible without surgery
What are typical results with EMSCULPT?
Research has shown that typical EMSCULPT results:
● 19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat ● 16% increase in muscle mass● Average waist reduction of 4.4cm
More recent studies have shown fat reduction as high as 23% in the area being treated. RealSelf results show 100% satisfaction rate with EMSCULPT at this time.
