Planks, crunches, and situps can work wonders when it comes to getting toned contours, but those exercises can take hours and hours of your time — and there’s no guarantee you’ll get the results you’re looking for, despite all your hard work and effort. Also patients that struggle with core exercises due to diastasis rectus or back issues may need more of an entry level to redeveloping core strength.
The good news: Emsculpt® can help. This state-of-the-art system combines two advanced technologies to help women and men at the Institute for Hormonal Balance in Arlington and Prosper, Texas, finally get the slim, sleek contours they’re looking for — without additional time at the gym. In this post, our team explains how Emsculpt can help you.
Emsculpt is a body contouring system that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy and radiofrequency (RF) energy to tone up muscles and eliminate unwanted areas of stubborn fat — all while you recline and relax. In fact, body contouring is so effective in getting results that nearly 700,000 treatments were performed last year — a 77% increase from just three years earlier.
Emsculpt uses a unique device to apply RF energy deep within the layers of tissue where fatty deposits hide. The gentle warmth breaks down fat cell walls, dissolving fat while leaving surrounding tissue undamaged. Over time, your body absorbs and eliminates the fatty debris, revealing sleeker contours below.
At the same time, electromagnetic energy targets your muscles. Tiny bursts of energy trigger thousands of muscle contractions, so you get the effect of doing thousands of reps in a single 30-minute session — without the hard work. These tiny contractions promote muscle adaptation and help your muscles develop increased tonicity for a firmer, tauter physique in far less time than it would take at the gym.
Emsculpt treatment sessions are completely noninvasive, and there’s no downtime afterward. Before your first session, you meet with our team to discuss your goals so we can map out a treatment plan for you.
During your sessions, we place the Emsculpt applicators over the target area. Then, you relax for about 30 minutes while the system works. You can expect to feel some warmth as the RF energy targets unwanted fatty tissue, but we adjust each treatment so you stay comfortable and relaxed.
The system’s HIFEM muscle contractions are designed to tone muscles and help clear away lactic acid to help prevent soreness and stiffness that typically happen after an intense traditional workout.
While you may see some initial improvement after just one session, most people benefit from a series of at least four sessions over about two weeks. You’ll see maximum results after about a month; touch-ups can help you maintain those results.
You work hard to stay in good shape. Let Emsculpt dp the rest. To learn more about Emsculpt and how it can help you achieve your goals, request an appointment online or over the phone with our Institute for Hormonal Balance team today.
