Look, it’s no secret that having an “ideal body” is easier said than done. Many people devote hours a day to making their healthiest meals and reaching that perfect fat-burning heart rate during their exercise sessions, only to feel disappointed about reaching a plateau that does not show off how toned they are. Two of the most common frustrating areas to tone and tighten are the abdomen and the buttocks. Often, people reach a point of thinking that surgery is their only option to reach their goal of looking as fit as they feel. It’s not the only option. In our San Antonio practice, several patients have found their sweet-spot thanks to EMSCULPT. You can, too.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nonsurgical body contouring treatments have increased over 50% in recent years. EMSCULPT is a body contouring treatment like nothing we’ve ever seen. Where most devices target unwanted fat, EMSCULPT targets muscle.
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is a medical device developed and manufactured by BTL, an industry leader with a strong reputation for excellence. This device has been made exclusively for muscle toning. A side benefit is that patients also experience fat loss in the treatment area. Each treatment session lasts about 30 minutes. During a session, an applicator is applied over clothing while the patient lies comfortably on their stomach or back. Through the applicator, high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy stimulates supramaximal muscle contractions in the target area.
EMSCULPT treatment performed on the buttocks not only tightens the glutes but also gives the appearance of a butt lift thanks to structural changes in the deep layers of muscle. The energy-delivery during a single session is comparable to 20,000 squats or crunches. It’s safe to say that very few people can perform this many repetitions in a thirty-minute session at the gym! The exposure to these strong, deep muscle contractions forces the tissue to adapt by remodeling their inner structure. What this means is that the muscle becomes denser and more contoured.
Is EMSCULPT Right for You?
EMSCULPT is suitable for many people because it does not require anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. The procedure itself can feel odd at first but is not painful. Results appear gradually throughout a series of sessions. With sustained exercise and healthy dietary habits, the improvements achieved with EMSCULPT can be maintained for years.
