If you work long hours, you will probably struggle to find time in your schedule to regularly exercise. Your family responsibilities can also prevent you from sticking to a challenging exercise schedule. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend all of your leisure time at the gym. At New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Weymouth, MA, we can use a sophisticated treatment called Emsculpt to help you build muscle and eliminate extra fat.
How Long Do Emsculpt Results Last?
Emsculpt is an efficient treatment that can be used to burn away fat and build muscle in your upper arms, calves, abdomen, and many other locations. This treatment creates muscle contractions that will reduce your fat and cause your muscles to grow. The improvements in your muscles will last as long as you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle.
Following a Healthy Lifestyle
To maintain your muscular, fit appearance, you will need to exercise regularly and adopt other healthy habits. In particular, we will advise you to promote new muscle growth by drinking adequate amounts of water and eating a sufficient amount of protein. Under some circumstances, we may advise you to supplement your exercise routine by getting follow-up sculpting sessions.
On average, we will advise you to consume one gram of protein for every pound of body weight that you have. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you will probably need to eat 150 grams of protein every day.
How Does This Body Contouring Technique Work?
Our contouring treatment will use electromagnetic energy to improve the muscles in your target area.
Receiving Electromagnetic Energy
During your appointment, we will use a special device to transmit electromagnetic energy into your desired location. This energy will cause your muscles to experience 20,000 powerful contractions. These intense movements are called supramaximal contractions. On average, this process will take 30 minutes to finish.
Improving Your Muscles
This method is very good at burning away your fat and improving the quality of your muscles. The contractions that you experience during your appointment will be similar to the movements that you would make during a series of very intense exercise sessions. For example, if you use this technique to improve your abdomen, the contractions will be similar to completing 20,000 sit-ups.
This technique is more effective than exercising on your own. On average, you will be able to complete 35 to 38 sit-ups in 60 seconds. At this speed, it would take you over 9.5 hours to perform 20,000 sit-ups. When you use Emsculpt to improve your muscles, you will be able to experience 20,000 muscle contractions in only 30 minutes.
Can This Treatment Really Improve My Muscles?
Many non-invasive contouring methods will not create dramatic improvements in your muscles. If you use one of these methods to improve your look, you might spend a significant amount of money without achieving noticeable results. Alternatively, you might have to spend months receiving regular contouring sessions before you see meaningful changes in your look.
Fortunately, this electromagnetic contouring technique is very quick and efficient. During studies, people experienced a 16% increase in the muscle mass in their target areas. Further, 96% of people were satisfied with the results of their treatment sessions.
Which Muscles Can This Body Contouring Method Improve?
This contouring treatment is a good way to tone muscles that you have been struggling to improve during your normal exercise program. We can use small and large applicators to improve muscles in many different locations. For example, you might use this technique to tone and firm your abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. In addition, you can use this contouring method to enhance the appearance of your flanks, biceps, or calves.
What Will Happen During My Contouring Treatment?
We will begin your contouring session by asking you to lie down in a comfortable position. Once you are ready, we will place our applicators over your desired target area. If you have never received this treatment before, we will probably begin by putting our device onto a low setting. As our Emsculpt device starts to transmit electromagnetic energy into your target area, your muscles will start to contract.
As you adjust to this treatment, we may increase the setting of our device. Your powerful contractions will feel similar to the sensations that you experience when you are completing an intense exercise class or another type of workout. These contractions will be comfortable, and you will feel at ease while our device improves your muscles.
Will I Need To Spend a Long Time Recovering From This Treatment?
This contouring method will use a completely non-invasive technique to tone your figure and reduce your fat. Since this method is very comfortable and easy, you will not be required to take time off from your job. That said, your muscles will take a little time to recover from your treatment, and you may decide to take a short break from your usual exercise schedule.
How Many Treatments Will I Receive?
The number of body contouring sessions that you receive will depend on the amount of extra fat in your target area and the condition of your muscles. For example, if you are a very fit person with a small amount of extra fat, you will quickly achieve your cosmetic goals. If you have a larger amount of fat, you might need to receive more contouring sessions.
On average, you will be able to reach your goals after you get four contouring sessions. We will usually advise you to schedule two appointments every week. You should wait about two to three days between each of your toning sessions. Spacing out your appointments will give your muscles enough time to recover from this treatment.
When Will My Muscles Begin To Improve?
If you are relatively slim and active, you may notice positive changes in your muscle tone and unwanted fat after you receive one sculpting session. If you have larger amounts of extra fat and are less active, you will probably notice improvements in your musculature and fat deposits after you complete multiple treatment sessions.
Who Should Consider Using This Sculpting Method?
If you are a healthy person who wants to tone your muscles and decrease your unnecessary fat, you will probably benefit from receiving this sculpting treatment. Further, you should think about using this sculpting method if you do not want to receive an invasive procedure like liposuction. To make sure that you are a good candidate, we will discuss your health before we start your initial session.
You should not use this sculpting method if you have an electronic or metal device that could alter your response to this treatment. For example, you should not have a pacemaker, IUD, or hip implant that could change your reaction to the electromagnetic energy that we will use to improve your muscles. Further, you will not be able to use this contouring treatment if you have a history of experiencing seizures or are currently pregnant.
Can I Use This Treatment To Improve Diastasis Recti?
Diastasis recti is a condition that develops when your abdominal muscles separate. It’s common to experience this health problem after you go through pregnancy. This condition can negatively impact the appearance of your stomach, harm your self-esteem, and cause you to experience other unpleasant symptoms. In the past, you might have been required to treat this condition by getting an invasive procedure with a long recovery time.
Fortunately, this contouring method can be a good way to improve diastasis recti in a non-invasive manner. The intense contractions that you experience during this treatment will increase your muscle mass and reduce extra fat on your abdomen. These changes will improve the appearance of your stomach and strengthen your abdominal muscles.
Can I Use Other Contouring Techniques To Improve My Look?
If you are interested in toning your chest or back, we may advise you to use a contouring technique called Ultrashape Power. We can also use this method to improve your thighs, buttocks, and flanks. This treatment will use gentle ultrasound waves to remove your unwanted fat. As these ultrasound waves pass through the surface of your skin, they will destroy the membranes of your fat cells.
Like our other body contouring method, this experience will be relaxing and easy. You will usually need to receive three Ultrashape Power treatments. You won’t have any downtime after each of your appointments. Instead of resting at your home, you will be able to immediately return to your exercise program and other normal activities.
Tone Your Muscles
If you are a busy person who cannot spend hours in the gym every evening, you should think about using Emsculpt to contour your figure and improve the appearance of your muscles. This comfortable treatment can be used to enhance the muscles on your abdomen, calves, thighs, and many other locations.
