Burning Fat & Building Muscle with EMSculpt

By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM

The task of crafting a slim and toned body is usually regarded as an intensive process; one that requires plenty of hard work at the gym and ample dedication when it comes to healthy eating. In recent years however, cosmetic surgeons have risen to the challenge by developing sophisticated processes to make the task even easier to achieve. While regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle will always remain as they key determining factors for achieving a trim and sculpted figure, liposuction and fat freezing treatments have rapidly emerged as the modern go-to solutions for fat removal and reduction, and they certainly succeed when it comes to reducing fatty deposits in problem-prone areas of the body.

But they simply aren’t the full answer to the issue at stake. While liposuction removes fat deposits quickly, the procedure requires downtime and can leave undesirable scars on the body, while fat freezing neglects muscle enhancement, and is difficult to apply on certain areas like the calve muscles.

Enter EMSculpt…

This is where the game-changing treatment of EMSculpt proves its worth. EMSculpt is a unique FDA approved treatment that patients can utilise to make noticeable improvements to their body shape. By using high-intensity electromagnetic energy on targeted areas, this advanced treatment is capable of both building up muscle in the body at the same time as burning unwanted fat. This is where EMSculpt wins in relation to the other options on offer. Ria Murch, one of our expert EMSculpt practitioners talks about the treatment in this short video:

“The beauty of EMSculpt is that we can use it to target muscle groups to actually tone the muscle while also reducing fat deposits in the process,” explains Ria. When having the treatment applied, individuals can tailor their programme to suit their own individual needs. “We can either work to reduce the fat layer and tone the muscle, or just tone the muscle, depending on the individual’s preferences. In this unique way, we can target fat loss, muscle toning or both in the same sitting.”

This flexible approach means that patients can zone in on body areas that demand a more intensive rate of fat reduction or muscle strengthening, like the abs, triceps and quads and the calve muscles or buttocks. Many individuals rely on EMSculpt to reduce fat around their waistlines for example, or to firm up their buttocks through a non-invasive butt lift that targets muscle toning in this key area. This procedure on its own accounts for over 40% of all EMSculpt treatments conducted worldwide, emphasising just how valuable the treatment can be when it comes to areas that are much more difficult to target at the gym for example.

Proven fat loss and muscle tone results

At present, EMSculpt is the only non-invasive device on the market that removes body fat and improves muscle size and tone in the same treatment. And it’s been clinically proven to do this effectively in over 18 independent studies, all of which have shown impressive fat reduction and muscle building effects, including a 19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat and a 16% increase in muscle mass. Perhaps this explains why the treatment is now offered in over 1000 prestigious clinics around the world, and loved by high-profile celebrities like JLO, Drew Barrymore and Lindsay Lohan.

In addition to its fat-burning and muscle-building benefits, the treatment is also a remarkably simple, affordable and pain-free procedure to undertake. Ria elaborates:

“EMSculpt is an easy treatment that’s applied while you lay down on the treatment bed. The electro-magnetic applicators are then applied to the surface of the skin to tone the muscle or reduce fat by generating muscle contractions in desired areas of the body.”

This process can take up to 30 minutes, allowing you to relax in the interim while the device does its transformational work. The overall treatment is taken in 4 sessions spaced over a 2-week consecutive period, while visible results are typically noticeable after 2-4 weeks. Provided that you stay up to date with your workout regime, the muscle toning and fat loss effects of the EMSculpt treatment can last up to and over 6 months, giving you another great tool to rely upon when it comes to maintain your sculpted look in a sustainable and long-lasting way.

Ria’s overall verdict… “It’s a very exciting new treatment that targets muscle building, toning and fat loss across many areas of the body with ease.” Ria Murch, Senior Medical Aesthetician
