How does it work?
Emsculpt uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM®) technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions that are not achievable by voluntary actions, like exercise. Used on the abdomen or buttocks, these supramaximal contractions have benefits for both fat and muscle. In one 30-minute treatment, you will achieve the equivalent of 20,000 squats or sit-ups. Supramaximal muscle contractions trigger hyperplasia and hypertrophy to grow muscles and induce apoptosis to disrupt fat cells.
Is it safe?
Emsculpt is the first FDA-cleared energy device approved to burn fat and build muscle mass. Emsculpt technology is backed by 7 independent clinical studies. Like any surgical or non-surgical procedure, there are risks associated. As a teacher and trainer of other physicians in safe, effective body contouring procedures, Dr. Cox stresses the importance of finding an experienced provider supervised by a physician who understands the finer points of treatment.
How long does recovery take?
Emsculpt is extremely well tolerated and feels like an intense workout. There is no downtime or pre/post treatment preparation.
What kind of results can I expect?
Emsculpt produces noticeable improvement of muscle growth and fat reduction. Immediately after treatment you will feel results, just like after an intense workout at the gym. Visible signs of improvement are typically reported 2-4 weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following. Individual results may vary. A series of 4 treatments is recommended.
