Dermatologist in Jacksonville, FL can contour your body with Emsculpt
Have you been exercising regularly, lifting weights, and watching your diet, only to be left dissatisfied with the contours of your body? If you answered yes, you aren’t alone. While an active lifestyle and proper nutrition are important for a healthy life, they don’t always lead to a toned, sculpted body. If you feel like you could use a little help getting the body you desire, then you may be a great candidate for Emsculpt from Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, FL. In the following article, we’ll look at Emsculpt and what it can do for your body contours.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that induces muscle contractions to tone and shape the body safely and effectively. Manufactured by BTL, an aesthetic technology company, Emsculpt can achieve up to 20,000 contractions in one 30-minute session. Think about how many sit-ups or squats you could do in 30 minutes at the gym and you’ll understand the power of Emsculpt.
How does Emsculpt Work
Emsculpt is a laser treatment that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic technology to stimulate strong muscle contractions that are vastly more powerful than any voluntary muscle contractions you can do on your own. These deep, powerful contractions remodel and sculpt your muscles, increasing muscle mass and decreasing fat for improved body contours. On average, Emsculpt has been shown to provide up to a 16 percent increase in muscles mass and a 19 percent decrease in fat.
Emsculpt is safe and effective for use in the following areas
- Legs and buttocks
- Abdominal area
Have the body contours you’ve always wanted
If you’ve often dreamed about what it would be like to have a tummy tuck, a butt lift, or liposuction, but haven’t wanted to undergo plastic surgery, then we invite you to learn more about the benefits of Emsculpt.
During the 30-minute sessions, you can relax comfortably, catching up on a book (or a nap!) while the Emsculpt device works its magic on the treatment area.
The benefits of Emsculpt include:
- Results can be felt immediately after treatment, like the feeling after an intense workout.
- It’s the only body sculpting treatment that builds muscle in addition to reducing fat for more toned body contours.
- Increases strength and stamina which helps improve your athletic performance due to increase in muscle mass.
- It helps with weight management because the increase in muscle mass helps your body burn more calories even at rest.
- It can help with abdominal separation for women who have diastasis recti after giving birth.
- It has zero downtime, so you can get on with your regular activities immediately following your treatment session.
What to expect with Emsculpt
When you come in for your Emsculpt session there is no preparation or anesthetics needed. You will be asked to lay down while the Emsculpt device is strapped to the targeted area. The treatment is not painful, most describe it as feeling like an intense workout.
Most individuals will need a total of four treatment sessions (two per week for two weeks. You will notice results starting about 2-4 weeks after your last session and they will continue to improve over time.
Results from Emsculpt can be permanent with a healthy lifestyle. This means your decrease in body fat and increase in muscle mass can be expected to last indefinitely if you maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
