EMSCULPT® of HOUSTON
Emsculpt® is a non-invasive FDA-approved electromagnetic treatment that tones and build muscles and removes fat.
Emsculpt® treats the abs, arms, legs and calves.
This cutting-edge non-invasive body-contouring treatment is quite simple – all you need to do is sit back and relax. The electromagnetic pulses emitted by the device will burn excess unwanted fat and make your muscle fibers stronger.
The machine creates muscle contractions that mimic those of a workout (squats, lifts, crunches, calf raises, etc.) at a rate far more rapid than we could ever do on our own. After this series of contractions, the Emsculpt® machine performs a series of “ticks” to keep lactic acid from building up in the muscles and creating soreness.
Emsculpt® addresses both muscle tone and excess fat by using HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) energy to induce powerful muscle contractions, thus increasing the rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells. Build muscle and lose fat simultaneously with Emsculpt® and achieve your goal body today!
Building Your Core
There are huge benefits to Emsculpt® beyond a toned abdomen. A strong core is the key to living a functional and active life. As we age, our core gets weaker, and this impacts our daily activities, along with our posture and overall back health.
Your core includes your pelvic muscles, hips, and the muscles that support the spine. Your abdominal muscles act as an anchor for the muscles in the mid and lower back. If you have weak abdominal muscles, your body has to work twice as hard to support your middle.
A strong core also enhances balances and stability. This might not be something you think about on a daily basis, but you use your core muscles for a lot of everyday things, including lifting, housework, and sports activities.
Toning Your Arms and Calves
Smaller Emsculpt® applicators are also available to help specifically work out the calves and the arms. These specialized applicators stimulate muscle contractions in these areas to provide targeted enhancement and toning.
Emsculpt® in Action
The electromagnetic pulses that EmSculpt technology emits stimulate the muscles in your body to contract around 20,000 times in a 30-minute duration. As a result of these contractions, your muscle fibers become strengthened and grow much tighter and firmer. This type of strengthening cannot be achieved through exercise or playing sports.
Additionally, during these contractions, chemicals in your muscles are released. These chemicals signal your fat cells to disintegrate, resulting in volume reduction and even more effective contouring.
This procedure is performed while the patient is lying down comfortably. Patients who have undergone the treatment say that the feeling of the treatment is similar to an intense workout, with the only difference being that your body is at rest the entire time. Sessions last 20-30 minutes, twice a week.
Why It Works
Fat cells in the body develop over childhood and early adulthood, and they are extremely tough to get rid of. The number of fat cells you have tends to stay at roughly the same level unless you work out with regularity.
When you gain weight, these fat cells expand as the body stores nutrients in them. When you lose weight, the cells contract as the body uses up those nutrients.
Emsculpt® treatments create an enhanced version of the effects of regular exercise. The result: rapid loss of fat and increase in muscle tone at a rate much faster than previously possible.
Remember, Emsculpt® is not a replacement but rather a complement to a healthy and active lifestyle. For optimal results, you should eat clean and exercise regularly. If you have questions about your diet, we have a nutritionist on staff who can help you fine tune your diet and live a healthier life.
After the Treatment Session
No downtime or recovery time will be required after your treatment session, meaning you can immediately return to your daily schedule or even daily workouts if desired.
Patients notice continuous improvements in their body contours for several weeks after treatment. On average, patients experience a 16% increase in their muscle mass in the targeted areas.
When you opt for an Emsculpt® treatment, it’s recommended that you undergo a total of four half-hour sessions over two weeks to achieve best results. We offer maintenance packages to keep your results in top shape all year long.
Emsculpt® can help you step up to more intensive workouts – you can use your strengthened core muscles to begin more challenging exercise routines. Emsculpt® is also great for athletes who want to take their training to the next level and build muscles they could not otherwise build on their own.
What to Expect After Treatment
To develop realistic expectations in terms of your potential results, it’s best to look over our Emsculpt® before and after photos.
Emsculpt® is also a great treatment. Come in for a consultation and let us show you the four stages of the Emsculpt® process.
This noninvasive fat reduction procedure has fewer risks and less downtime than surgical liposuction.
