Who Is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is intended for healthy, fit men and women who are looking to improve their body contours by addressing stubborn pockets of fat and improving muscle tone, specifically in the abdomen and buttocks.
EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of the buttocks as well as the abdomen by reducing excess fat and increasing muscle tone. Often toted as the “nonsurgical butt lift,” EMSCULPT’s ability to strengthen and firm the gluteal muscles helps to lift and tighten your buttocks without the use of surgery.
Dr. Harrington and our highly skilled staff at Harrington + Associates Plastic Surgery will help you create an individualized treatment plan designed to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Your EMSCULPT Treatment
During your treatment, you will either lie on your stomach or your back depending on which body part you are wanting to target. For addressing your abdomen, one EMSCULPT applicator will be applied to your abdomen and secured with a binding strap while you lie on your back. To target your buttocks, two applicators will be applied with one on each buttock while you lie on your stomach.
Once the applicators are securely placed, your EMSCULPT treatment begins. A series of varying muscle contraction patterns are used to maximize your muscles’ workload causing them to adapt. EMSCULPT will do all the work while you relax. During treatment, you will feel your muscles contracting, but it should not feel overly uncomfortable. Each 30-minute treatment session is capable of delivering nearly 20,000 deep muscular contractions within that short time frame which can’t be achieved with regular sit-ups or squats alone.
EMSCULPT treatments take about 30 minutes per session. A minimum of 4 sessions spread out over 2 weeks is recommended for maximum results.
EMSCULPT is considered a lunchtime treatment as it takes just 30 minutes to complete one treatment. Its noninvasiveness allows you to get in, get out and get back to your daily routine with zero need for pre/post treatment preparation or downtime.
Because of the intensity of the muscle contractions, you may experience muscles soreness 24 to 48 hours following your session. Many people compare this feeling to an intense workout minus the sweat.
Although individual experiences vary, many men and women notice a difference in their appearance soon after completing their first EMSCULPT treatment. However, it may take 2 to 4 weeks after your final treatment to see your final results.
Even though EMSCULPT is effective at addressing excess fat cells and improving muscle tone, you still need to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine for long-lasting results. After your 4 initial EMSCULPT treatments, it is recommended to schedule follow-up treatments every 3 to 6 months to maintain maximum results.
If you have stubborn trouble zones that don’t respond to diet and exercise, then EMSCULPT could be an excellent option in helping you achieve your aesthetic goals without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.
