The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California the first office in Sacramento to offer Emsculpt, the only non-invasive body contouring procedure to build muscle and burn fat.
Emsculpt is a non-invasive procedure that efficiently builds muscle and burns fat in both men and women. Current body contouring procedures address fat and skin, whereas Emsculpt builds muscle and burns fat for improvement in the tone and shape of the abdomen or buttocks.
How does Emsculpt work?
Emsculpt uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to induce approximately 20,000 forced muscle contractions per session. These forced contractions, considered supramaximal contractions are not normally achievable through voluntary muscle action. Supramaximal contractions increase muscle growth and disrupt fat cells in the treated area. In clinical trials there was a 16% average increase in muscle mass and a 19% average fat reduction after treatment.
How long does an Emsculpt treatment take?
Emsculpt treatments are approximately 30 minutes long. Before your first treatment, photos, measurements and body weight will be taken. A minimum of four treatments are recommended, with treatment sessions separated by at least two days depending on your needs. Completing a full treatment series is necessary to maximize treatment efficacy.
What areas can be treated with Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is currently suitable for treatment to the abdomen and buttocks. Emsculpt is a great option for patients seeking a butt lift but would prefer a non-surgical, non-invasive option.
Is there any downtime after an Emsculpt treatment?
Emsculpt is a non-invasive treatment with no downtime. There is typically no pain associated with your treatment and there is no anesthetic required.
Does Emsculpt hurt? What does it feel like?
During the application you will feel intense, yet not painful contractions in the treated area. Emsculpt doesn’t require any recovery time and you can typically get back to your daily routine right after treatment.
How fast will I see results after my Emsculpt treatment?
Patients begin to feel tangible results right after treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy to help promote and maintain your results.
Can Emsculpt help with Diastasis Recti?
Diastasis Recti is caused by the rectus abdominis muscles in the abdomen separating, leaving a gap between the abdomen muscles that allows your belly to pooch out. This commonly occurs in women that have been pregnant but can also occur in men. Studies have shown that Emsculpt may be helpful to reduce the severity of Diastasis Recti.
Am I candidate for Emsculpt?
Both men and women seeking improvement to the tone and shape of their abdomen or buttocks are good candidates for Emsculpt. Please let your treatment provider know if you have or have had any of the following possible contraindications for treatment: Metal or electronic implants in the treatment area, cardiac pacemakers, implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators, drug pumps, malignant tumor, fever, hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, recent surgical procedures (muscle contraction may disrupt healing in the treatment area). Pregnant or nursing women cannot undergo the Emsculpt treatment.
