EMSculpt® Muscle Toning and Fat Reduction
About EMSculpt® Body Contouring at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta
Non-surgical fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting® have exploded in popularity over the past few years as technology has made it an effective and time-efficient option. However, EMSculpt® is the first treatment that takes this popular procedure a step further by simultaneously toning and contouring treatment areas. EMSculpt® is FDA cleared for improving abdominal tone as well as strengthening and firming abdominal, buttocks, thigh, arm, and calf muscles.
Released in the summer of 2018, EMSculpt® uses a precise type of electromagnetic energy that is applied from the surface of your skin with no incisions and no needles. The energy tones your chosen muscles (in the abdomen or the buttocks) at a deep level that exercise rarely reaches, while also breaking down fat in the treatment area. The result is a more sculpted and toned appearance. EMSculpt® can also be used to lift, firm, and tone the buttocks with no surgery or downtime required.
After determining if you’re a candidate for EMSculpt®, our experienced medical providers will be able to suggest a course of treatment. Each session only takes about 30 minutes, and most patients get best results after four sessions, each about 2-3 days apart. Patients have reported that the sensation is tolerable and that it feels similar to an intensive workout.
After your treatment series is finished, you’ll start seeing significant EMSculpt® results within two to four weeks. However, your results will continue to develop for several weeks or months.
What areas of the body can I enhance with EMSculpt®?
EMSculpt® has been shown to be effective in muscle toning and body contouring in two primary areas of the body: the abdomen and the buttocks. It’s FDA approved for enhancing abdominal tone, and strengthening abdominal, thigh, buttock, arm and calf muscles.
How do I know if I’m a candidate for EMSculpt® body contouring?
EMSculpt® is compatible with all skin types and for both men and women, but there are a number of factors that determine whether you are an appropriate candidate, such as the amount of fat you want to reduce. To find out if EMSculpt® is an option for you, schedule a consultation appointment at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
How much recovery time does EMSculpt® require?
EMSculpt® body contouring does not require any downtime, nor does it require any preparation before your treatment. Combined with the fact that a full treatment series is often completed in less than two weeks, this makes EMSculpt® a convenient treatment for patients with busy schedules.
