Does a six-pack feel like an unreachable goal? What about a tighter, shapelier backside?
If you’ve tried to tone your abdomen and buttocks in the gym without much success, then Emsculpt may be an excellent solution for you.
The treatment is completely non-invasive and can simultaneously build muscle and burn fat, without any downtime.
While these benefits are appealing, many patients want to know if getting abs or a firmer butt will hurt and wonder: What does Emsculpt feel like?
Continue reading to find out how Emsculpt works and what patients can expect should they decide to undergo treatment.
How Emsculpt Treatments Work
Emsculpt is a body contouring game-changer. The FDA-approved treatment uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate the effects of 20,000 crunches or squats in just 30 minutes.
In doing so, Emsculpt forces muscle fibers to undergo intense remodeling, to the extent that abs and buttocks become stronger, more toned, and firmer.
But that’s not all. Emsculpt’s supramaximal muscle contractions also cause the release of epinephrine, which breaks down fat.
As a result, patients can experience up to a 16 percent increase in muscle mass and a 19 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat, following four Emsculpt treatments.
What Does Emsculpt Feel Like?
One of the key advantages of Emsculpt is that it is a non-surgical and painless procedure. Still, most women and men considering this treatment ask: What does Emsculpt feel like? Here’s the answer:
During treatment, a paddle-like applicator is attached to the abdomen or buttocks, and the provider gradually increases the intensity.
Over the next 30 minutes, patients will experience three different phases of muscles contractions. While some find the sensation surprising, most agree that it’s very similar to a crunch or a lunge. In fact, Emsculpt is often described as being like an intense workout, with the device putting in all of the effort.
The following day, the abdomen or buttocks may be slightly sore, but should not affect your daily routine in any way.
