If you dream about having a toned, slim body but your hours in the gym have not given you the results you are seeking, then the revolutionary Emsculpt® therapy may be just what you need. This energy-based treatment can be used to sculpt common trouble spots, including your arms, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Our team of professionals at EsthetixMD is excited to offer this exciting treatment to patients in the Bend, OR area. When our patients feel more confident about their body when they look in the mirror, that confidence translates to all other areas of their lives, including work and social situations. Emsculpt body contouring treatment can literally be life-changing!
How Emsculpt works
Emsculpt was created by the innovative technology company BTL to both build muscle and reduce fat in hard-to-sculpt areas of the body. It uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to generate powerful muscle contractions in the treatment area. These contractions are stronger than the voluntary contractions you can do working out at the gym: the average crunch or squat only activates about 5% of the targeted muscle groups, but Emsculpt activates 100% of it, and achieves remarkable results in a short amount of time. In fact, one thirty-minute treatment session is the equivalent of doing 20,000 bicep curls when treating your arms or 20,000 squats when treating your thighs. Think of all the time in the gym you’d have to spend to do all those reps!
Emsculpt was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration for toning and strengthening the abdomen and buttocks, and more recently, applicators were developed to strengthen, tone, and firm the arms and thighs, which have also been cleared by the FDA. EsthetixMD is proud to offer all these treatment options, including the new arm and thigh applications.
One of the biggest benefits of Emsculpt body sculpting treatment is not the fact that it burns fat, but that it also builds your muscles at the same time. When your muscles are stronger and larger, it gives you a healthier, more fit appearance. And there is the added benefit that muscles burn more calories than fat – even when you are just sitting at your computer or reading a book! This improvement in your metabolic rate around the targeted muscles is part of why EmSculpt is so effective. It keeps working long after the treatment is over. Studies of Emsculpt treatment have shown that it leads to:
- An average of 16 percent increase in muscle mass
- A 27.4 percent decrease in subcutaneous fat after six months
- A 96 percent patient satisfaction rate
In addition to the body shaping benefits they get from the treatment, patients often see physical gains in their athletic efforts, due to stronger muscles that allow them to hit goals in the gym, at yoga, or in sports that they were previously unable to achieve. If you have reached a plateau in your athletic pursuits, Emsculpt can be just the boost you needed.
Patients love that EmSculpt is non-invasive. No serious adverse events have ever been noted with Emsculpt treatment, and there is zero downtime or recovery. It is truly a procedure you can get done on your lunch hour and then get back to your day!
What to expect during your treatment
Emsculpt treatment is comfortable and non-invasive. When you arrive at EsthetixMD, a member of our professional team will strap the Emsculpt machine onto your desired treatment area and then turn on the power, which starts the muscular contractions. These will occur a few seconds apart, and patients often describe the sensation as a very intense vibration. Most patients find that it becomes more comfortable with each treatment session.
We typically recommend that patients receive multiple treatments for the best results. Like going to the gym, your muscles need repeated contractions spaced out over time to reach their potential. Patients usually undergo two treatments a week for two weeks, for a total of four treatment sessions. Then, we suggest patients return every three to six months to maintain their great results.
Learn whether Emsculpt is right for you
EmSculpt provides the best results for patients who are relatively healthy and fit already. If you already exercise and eat well, but your gym routine or spin classes aren’t giving you the body you want, then Emsculpt may be right for you. At EsthetixMD, we consult with patients about their cosmetic goals, what they prefer in terms of treatment time and recovery, and their current lifestyle and habits. We are also happy to answer any questions that patients have so they are well-informed about their treatment plan and what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.
