Everything You Need To Know About Emsculpt!

As you’ve probably heard by now, Emsculpt is taking the world by storm, as more and more male and female patients tighten their bodies with this amazing, revolutionary new treatment that produces six-pack abs and tightens the buttocks as if you had spent months in the gym.

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is the first FDA-approved energy device designed to burn fat and build muscle mass in order to produce precise body sculpting in the abdominal region and buttocks. Emsculpt is a painless, minimally invasive, non-surgical body contouring procedure that enhances definition in the abs and lifts and tightens sagging buttocks.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

While the majority of other body contouring procedures simply extract unwanted excess fat, an Emsculpt treatment achieves amazing results by targeting both fat and muscle tissue.  During an Emsculpt body contouring treatment, the Emsculpt device is used to direct highly focused electromagnetic energy to the treatment site. This energy causes the muscles in the area to contract very intensely, far more than what is normally possible through exercise. These powerfully strong contractions force the muscle tissue to adapt by remodeling its inner structure. This results in building stronger, firmer muscle mass, improving muscle tone, and sculpting a flat, defined abdomen and firm, tight glutes. 

EmSculpt is the only non-invasive body contouring procedure that actually builds muscle mass while eliminating excess fat and sculpting the body. Using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, Emsculpt exposes muscle tissue to supramaximal contractions from flank to flank. After 4 treatment sessions, most Emsculpt patients see an average increase in muscle tissue of 16%, with about 19% fat reduction on average.

Who is the Ideal Emsculpt Candidate?

Emsculpt is ideal for any healthy adult male or female who wants sculpted abs, thighs, or glutes. Because Emsculpt is non-invasive, almost anyone can benefit from an Emsculpt treatment; however, Emsculpt is not a weight-reduction treatment and is not recommended for those who are above 10-20 pounds over their ideal weight. In order to achieve the best results, Emsculpt patients should be within 10-20 pounds of their target weight, so it’s best to schedule this treatment after you’ve lost the weight you want to lose. Emsculpt is also ideal for individuals who struggle with stubborn bumps and bulges that won’t respond to proper diet and exercise.  Bear in mind that in order to maintain the results of Emsculpt treatments, it is recommended that you maintain an active exercise routine along with a healthy diet.

Emsculpt Results: What to Expect

You will be able to notice a difference immediately after your first treatment, however, because Emsculpt treatments trigger collagen production, the maximum results can usually be appreciated around two to four weeks after your last treatment session, as improvements continue to develop for several weeks following each treatment. 

How Long Do Emsculpt Results Last?

The muscle mass you gain after each EmSculpt treatment typically lasts about six months and even more in some cases. Follow-up treatment sessions will be required in order to maintain optimal results for longer periods.

Can You Do Emsculpt After CoolSculpting?

Yes. It is safe to do Emsculpt in combination with other body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting. You may also combine Emsculpt with more invasive procedures like liposuction or even surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck, in order to produce a more contoured and defined silhouette in the abdomen and buttocks. 

How Much Does Emsculpt Cost in Houston?

The cost of Emsculpt varies from patient to patient, as each treatment is customized for each patient. The cost of the total treatment typically depends on the size of the treatment area and the number of sessions required to reach the patient’s aesthetic goals. At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Bachilo can recommend the most suitable treatment plan for you, with flexible payment options.

Is Emsculpt Worth It?

At the end of the day what you really want to know is this: Does Emsculpt deliver what it promises? The answer is a resounding “yes” as the treatment continues to gain widespread recognition, becoming a favorite procedure among both doctors and their patients.  In fact, RealSelf, a leading online platform that provides feedback from real patients about the value of cosmetic procedures, proclaimed Emsculpt one of the “Most Worth It” procedures of 2019 as determined by “Worth It” ratings submitted by actual patients who have undergone the procedure. Participating patients gave Emsculpt a 92% “Worth it” rating.
