The task of crafting a slim and toned body is often 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 easier. While regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle will always remain key to attaining a trim and sculpted figure, liposuction and fat freezing treatments have rapidly emerged as the modern go-to solutions for fat removal and reduction.
But they aren’t for everyone. While liposuction removes fat deposits quickly, the procedure requires downtime and can leave undesirable scars on the body. Fat freezing also neglects muscle enhancement, and is difficult to apply on certain areas like the calve muscles.
This is where the FDA-approved EMSculpt treatment proves its worth. By using high-intensity electromagnetic energy, this advanced treatment is capable of both building up muscle while 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. Patients can tailor their programme to suit their own individual needs.
“We can either 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. Others 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. This emphases 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. 18 clinically-proven studies have verified its impressive fat reduction and muscle building effects. This includes 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, Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox, and Lindsay Lohan.
Easy, Effective and Non-Invasive
In addition to its fat-burning and muscle-building benefits, the treatment is also remarkably simple, affordable and pain-free. Ria elaborates:
“EMSculpt is an easy treatment that’s applied while you lay down on the treatment bed. Electro-magnetic applicators are then applied to the surface of the skin to contract the muscles. This helps to reduce fat cells while toning up the muscle’s structure.”
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 takes place in 4 sessions spaced over a 2-week consecutive period. Visible results are typically noticeable after 2-4 weeks. Providing you stay up-to-date with your workout regime, the muscle toning and fat loss effects of EMSculpt can last over 6 months. This gives you another great mechanism to rely on to maintain your sculpted look in a sustainable, long-lasting way. The EMSculpt brand has also recently launched an improved version of the EMSculpt treatment called EMSculpt Neo, giving patients even more muscle-building and fat reduction results in the shortest amount of time.
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
