Have you heard of Emsculpt? It’s a revolutionary non-invasive procedure that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
While these toning and firming results are unique to Emsculpt, you may be wondering how Emsculpt compares with other technologies.
Continue reading as we discuss Emsculpt vs. body contouring devices in terms of mechanism of action, treatment time, and results.
Emsculpt vs. Body Contouring Devices – How It Works
Emsculpt uses electromagnetic energy to initiate a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions. As a result of these extreme conditions, muscle tissue undergoes intense remodeling and unwanted fat is destroyed.
In comparison, other body contouring modalities only act on fat and skin.
- CoolSculpting freezes localized fat pockets through a cooling effect.
- SculpSure heats and destroy stubborn bulges with laser-based energy.
- Zerona is a cool laser that is extremely gentle in targeting unwanted fat, but often cited as ineffective.
- Vanquish utilizes radiofrequency to melt large areas of fat. Its mechanism of action is similar to that of Venus Freeze, TruSculpt, and Ultrafreeze.
Emsculpt vs. Body Contouring Devices – Treatment Time
Each Emsculpt session takes just 30 minutes, and patients are able to comfortably recline throughout the procedure.
On the other hand, each CoolSculpting cycle takes between 35-60 minutes, and areas like the abdomen can sometimes require 4 or more cycles.
While SculpSure requires only 25 minutes per fat-reduction treatment, a typical Zerona session lasts around 40 minutes.
Vanquish is another lunch-time body contouring procedure and takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
Emsculpt vs. Body Contouring Devices – Expected Results
After a series of four Emsculpt sessions, patients can achieve up to a 19 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat and up to a 16 percent increase in muscle mass.
Although CoolSculpting and SculpSure do not act on muscle, they can produce up to a 24 percent decrease in fat in the treatment area.
Additionally, Vanquish results can usually be seen eight-to-12 weeks following the patient’s last treatment.
