How Long Will My EmSculpt Results Last?

You’re careful about your diet and work out faithfully, but you’re still struggling to achieve a toned, muscular body. If this sounds like you, it may be time to give EmSculpt a try. This body sculpting system, offered by Dundee Dermatology in West Dundee, IL, can non-surgically tone the abdomen and lift the buttocks, offering results that are hard to achieve on your own.

How Long Will My EmSculpt Results Last?

We design a custom treatment plan for each patient, but for many individuals, we recommend scheduling four or more 30-minute sessions, each of which is at least two days apart. Patients often see signs of improvement after their very first treatment, with their full results developing roughly four weeks after the series is complete.

Some patients can maintain their results for the long term by doubling down on their fitness routine and adhering to a careful diet. For others, one or two maintenance treatments a year is enough to maintain their results.

What Type of Results Can I Expect?

This body sculpting treatment focuses on toning and building muscle definition in the buttocks, flanks, or abdominal area. It gets rid of unwanted fat and leaves your muscles noticeably stronger. You may find that planks and other strength exercises will be easier to perform after this treatment.

Patients experience an average fat loss of 19% and an average increase in muscle mass of 16%. And because their bodies become more muscular as a result of this treatment, their metabolism also increases, which makes it easier for their bodies to more efficiently burn calories and fat.

How Does Treatment Work?

This non-invasive body sculpting system essentially tricks your body into thinking it’s undergone a series of extraordinarily intense workouts, giving you the results that would come from such workouts. During treatment, high-intensity electromagnetic energy is delivered to the targeted area through external paddles.

That energy causes the muscles to contract in a way that releases fatty acids that support muscle strength and whittle away fat. So while you’re relaxing on the treatment table, this system is triggering the same bodily processes that would take place if you had done 20,000 squats or sit-ups.

What Is the Treatment Experience Like?

During each treatment, an external paddle will be placed against the target area and strapped on so that it doesn’t move. As the electromagnetic energy does its work, you’ll feel muscle contractions taking place deep inside the part of the body being treated.

You may notice your legs gently lifting and falling as each contraction takes place, but you won’t experience any discomfort. The paddle will make subtle, intermittent taps on the treatment area to break up lactic acid.

Once your appointment is over, you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule. Any muscle tenderness you feel over the next day will be similar to what you might experience after a tough workout.

How Does This Differ From Other Body Contouring Treatments?

Over the past 15 years, several non-invasive body contouring treatments have become available to help patients slim down and shape up troublesome areas that have resisted diet and exercise. But while many of the other treatment systems focus on getting rid of unwanted fat, EmSculpt works to strengthen and build muscles.

This makes EmSculpt a great complementary treatment. Patients who have gotten rid of fat, either through diet and exercise or with the help of another contouring system, sometimes then turn to EmsSculpt for help in toning up their muscles.

Am I a Candidate?

If you’re interested in finding out if you’re a good candidate for this revolutionary treatment system, the first step is to schedule a consultation with one of the friendly professionals at our office. During your consultation, we’ll review your medical history, evaluate your area of concern, and talk with you about your cosmetic goals. We’ll determine if this treatment system is the best approach for you. But there are several early signs that you may be an especially good candidate.

You’re Already in Pretty Good Shape

This treatment system is ideal for patients who are regularly working out and taking good care of their bodies but who still haven’t been able to achieve complete muscle tone and strength in their abdomen or buttocks. This treatment supplements their already healthy lifestyle, giving them the boost they need to push past a fitness plateau and finally achieve the body they’ve been working toward.

You’re Overall Health Is Good

Patients considering this treatment should not have metal implants or a history of muscular problems. This treatment is also not suitable for patients who are pregnant.

You’re Trying to Come Back After Injury

Athletes who have been sidelined by an injury and who are trying to quickly rebuild weakened muscles sometimes turn to this treatment.

You’re Committed to Healthy Habits

Patients who can adhere to a healthy lifestyle, both during their treatment series and after, usually see the best results. Avoiding excessive alcohol consumption, refraining from smoking, following a conscientious diet, and exercising regularly can both optimize your results and help you maintain your results long-term.
