Have you read that Emsculpt is uncomfortable? The truth behind the myths from The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM

Type the words ‘body sculpting’ into any online search engine, and you will be met with a barrage of articles from different clinics, boasting the benefits of undertaking non-surgical body sculpting procedures.

However, it is more than likely that you will also come across a fair number of articles and videos discussing how these treatments are uncomfortable, can cause long-term issues and are not worth all the hype. Even if you had your mindset on undertaking a non-surgical body sculpting procedure, the latter articles are likely to cast more than a few doubts on your decision!

When researching any procedure, it is always best to steer clear of those who seek to gain recognition through disparaging it and turn to the professionals who perform the procedures for the facts. After all, who knows more about any treatment than the people who do it for a living?

When you come to The Cosmetic Skin Clinic for any body sculpting procedures, including EMSculpt we will be more than happy to answer any questions you have and discuss any potential risks you may be worried about. See the top 5 FAQ about EMSculpting. As these procedures are non-surgical, the risks are minimal and you will be able to walk out of our surgery the same day with no discomfort or lethargy from sedation. Perfect!

So, what are the most prevalent myths about EMSculpt?

Myth 1- It is uncomfortable

Fact- As the non-surgical, body sculpting techniques we offer at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic involve no incisions, they are not painful.

Fact- At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic in London and Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire, we offer non-surgical, body sculpting techniques that involve no incisions, therefore, they are not painful. In relation to EMSculpt, during and after the procedure, you are likely to feel your muscles contracting, but this should not be unpleasant!

Myth 2- It requires no after-care

Fact- In the traditional sense, our body sculpting options will not require you to rub cream into your legs or take pain relief medication. However, if you want the effects of the treatments to last, you should eat healthily and keep up with your exercise regime to prolong the toning effects of the sculpting.

Myth 3- Anyone can have it done

Fact- Unfortunately, not everyone is suited for our range of non-surgical, body sculpting treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.

Indeed if you are under the age of 18 or have any serious medical conditions, during your initial consultation you will need to talk to either of our professional teams in Lodon or Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire to get valuable advice on whether EMSculpt is suitable for you.

Myth 4- You can only have it performed so many times

Fact- While we do advise that you wait at least 6 months between treatments, there is no maximum amount of body-sculpting procedures that you can have.

As there is no scarring, no anaesthetic and no associated complications, you may want to undertake these treatments to keep your muscles and physique looking refreshed and vibrant.

Myth 5- It is only suitable for women

Fact- This is simply not true!

Many men come to our team at the Cosmetic Skin Clinic to improve the appearance of their muscles with non-surgical sculpting treatments.
