If you lead an active and healthy lifestyle but are looking to define & sculpt your abs, legs and arms, or lift, tone, & firm your buttocks, EMSCULPT could be a great solution for you! EMSCULPT is the world’s first FDA-approved non-invasive, non-surgical technology that builds muscle and reduces fat for both men and women. Slim Studio BodySculpting is Atlanta’s premier center for body contouring – we focus solely on EMSCULPT and CoolSculpting!
How EMSCULPT Works on Your Abs
EMSCULPT is a great addition to your workout if you are looking to etch & sculpt your abdominal muscles. During a typical workout, your muscles can only reach approximately 40% of their maximum capacity. EMSCULPT allows your muscles to reach their full potential at 100% capacity using High-Intensity-Focused-Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM). EMSCULPT induces what are called “supramaximal” contractions, contractions that put your muscles into full use.
There is a limit to the results that you can achieve on your own with sit-ups and crunches. EMSCULPT works all of your core’s muscles groups. These are the four main abdominal muscle groups & their functions:
• Transverse abdominis muscles are the deepest muscle layer and they stabilize the trunk.
• Rectus abdominis muscles run between the ribs and the pelvic bone and are the “bumps and bulges” that create the “6-pack” look.
• External oblique muscles are on each side of the rectus abdominis and allow the trunk to twist.
• Internal oblique muscles flank the rectus muscles and partner with the external obliques in allowing the trunk to twist.
One 30-minute EMSCULPT treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 sit-ups!
Treating the abs with EMSCULPT strengthens your core muscles which in turn could strengthen your back muscles and your pelvic muscles. The strengthening of these muscles can help reduce the risk of lower back pain, poor posture, & overall body fatigue.
Like exercising, the body responds to abdominal muscle contractions by rebuilding and repairing muscle tissue which results in stronger & firmer muscles. The EMSCULPT treatment creates microscopic tears in the muscle tissue; as your muscle tissue repairs and rebuilds itself, there is a noticeable increase in muscle mass. You will feel the same kind of soreness after an EMSCULPT treatment as you would after an intense workout. While EMSCULPT is FDA-approved to strengthen and tone muscle, a side effect that many patients have seen is a reduction in subcutaneous fat in the treated area!
So, how does the EMSCULPT device actually work? First, there is a round applicator that is approximately 10 inches wide that is strapped snuggly onto your abdomen. The treatment begins by delivering the HIFEM energy through the applicators to your abdominal muscles. Your muscles go into supramaximal contractions which feel like you are doing a particularly intense workout. The recommended treatment is a series of four 30-minute treatments over a two-week period for optimal results.
EMSCULPT is suited for many people who may have different body sculpting goals including:
• People seeking aesthetic improvements to their abdominal physique
• Those who want to increase their abdominal strength and stamina
• Those who may not have a thick enough fat layer to be a candidate for CoolSculpting
• Mothers who are looking to improve diastasis recti
• Busy, active individuals who are unable to maintain a regular workout routine
• Athletes recovering from an injury
There is no downtime with EMSCULPT, so you can do treatment on your lunch hour, head back to work, run your errands, or go to the gym right after your treatment!
While EMSCULPT builds & defines muscle and is best suited for those with leaner physiques, CoolSculpting works a little differently and can help reduce unwanted fat on the body.
As we age and our hormones change, fat pockets on the body can become more stubborn and difficult to get rid of, even if you follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. CoolSculpting uses a fat freezing method called cryolipolysis. This powerful cooling energy is applied to the fat pockets that you want to get rid of. The intense cold (minus 10 degrees Celsius) injures and ultimately kills fat cells which your body then metabolizes through your lymphatic system and eliminates through waste. Like EMSCULPT, there is no recovery time, and you can return to your daily activities immediately following treatment.
Some patients may be best suited for EMSCULPT, others for CoolSculpting, and some patients will get the optimal results with both CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT treatments. Sometimes this dual treatment can help first reduce the fat layer and then you can follow up with EMSCULPT to help tone and build muscle in the desired area.
Slim Studio is the only body sculpting center in Atlanta that focuses solely on EMSCULPT and CoolSculpting. The staff at Slim Studio will work with you to help you obtain your body goals and find a plan that is right for you!
The results from EMSCULPT might sound too good to be true, but we have the proof! Our patients return to us time and again, because they see results. EMSCULPT has been proven, at one month to:
• Increase muscle mass by up to 16%
• Reduce fat by up to 19%
• Restore the diastasis recti (separated ab muscles that can happen after pregnancy) by 11%
Please keep in mind that EMSCULPT is a safe medical procedure, however, results and patient experience may vary.
Recommendations for Best Results
In order to maintain your EMSCULPT results, at Slim Studio we recommend one maintenance treatment per quarter, and at the very minimum, twice per year. While EMSCULPT does a lot of the heavy lifting, it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Patients who continue to exercise and eat a balanced diet see the best results from EMSCULPT.
