Do you struggle to tone certain problem areas like the stomach or thighs? This is a common aesthetic concern, even for those who follow a healthy diet and rigid workout routine. Sometimes sculpting the body to your desires takes a little more than diet and exercise. This is where Emsculpt body contouring can make a difference.
Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville offers Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo procedures for patients in the Jacksonville Beach, FL, area. Learn more about the Emsculpt body contouring process in this complete guide below.
Emsculpt Body Sculpting
Emsculpt is an innovative body sculpting treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions, burning fat and enhancing your underlying muscle tone.
This non-invasive procedure requires no incisions, sutures, or anesthetics. Emsculpt is a great option for patients looking to tone certain problem areas of the body, such as the abdomen or buttocks.
Emsculpt Neo is an update of the original Emsculpt system. This body contouring procedure combines radiofrequency energy and high-intensity electromagnetic energy to accelerate fat burn and enhance underlying muscles.
The Emsculpt Neo system is a more intense version of the traditional Emsculpt machine, making it more effective for patients with extra weight. Patients with a BMI of up to 35 can see results from Emsculpt Neo.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
Ideal candidates for body sculpting procedures like Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo are those who are already within range of their ideal weight. Emsculpt is not a weight loss procedure. It will not help you drop extra pounds. Instead, it will help promote fat burn while enhancing underlying muscle tone.
This is most effective for patients who have a few problem areas rather than a significant amount of excess weight. Patients who need to lose a significant amount of weight will benefit more from other cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction.
Common Questions About Emsculpt Body Sculpting Treatment
If you’re new to the Emsculpt body contouring system, it’s common to have questions about what the procedure involves. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo.
Do I Need a Consultation to Receive Emsculpt Treatment?
Before scheduling an Emsculpt procedure, you will need to have a consultation appointment. This is to ensure that Emsculpt is the best course of treatment to meet your needs.
We will assess your problem areas and determine whether Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo is the right procedure to achieve your aesthetic goals. If we do not feel that Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo will benefit you, we will advise you on alternative options at this time.
What Areas of the Body Can Emsculpt Procedures Treat?
Both Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo are great treatment options because they can be used on various areas of the body. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Upper arms
While some patients choose to receive Emsculpt treatment on only one area of the body, many patients choose to have multiple areas of the body treated at once.
How Is Emsculpt Treatment Performed?
Both Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo are non-invasive outpatient procedures. There is no anesthesia required during your treatment. You will be able to lie down comfortably while one of our cosmetic medicine providers operates the Emsculpt machine.
The Emsculpt process begins by placing large dual-applicators on the predetermined treatments areas. For most patients, these include some combination of the stomach, flanks, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms.
Once the applicators are in place, they will deliver intense electromagnetic energy deep into the tissues to stimulate muscle contractions. During Emsculpt Neo treatment, both radiofrequency and electromagnetic energy will be delivered deep into the tissues to burn fat and improve muscle tone.
Patients do not need to do anything during this process. The Emsculpt machine does all of the work for you!
How Long Is an Emsculpt Session?
The duration of your Emsculpt session will vary depending on the areas being treated. The more areas being treated, the longer your session will be. Most Emsculpt treatments last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour.
After your Emsculpt session is complete, you will be able to return home and resume normal activity. There is no recovery or downtime involved with the Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo process.
Will I Need Multiple Emsculpt Treatments?
To see optimal results from your Emsculpt treatment, you will need to have multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart. For most patients, this is somewhere between two and five sessions. After this initial round of treatment, you can maintain your results by having an Emsculpt session two to three times per year.
Should I Have Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo Treatment?
Many patients are unsure which Emsculpt treatment is right for them. The original Emsculpt treatment is ideal for patients who are within close range of their ideal body weight.
The Emsculpt Neo system is better suited for patients who have a slight amount of excess weight, as it delivers more intense energy to stimulate muscle contractions and burn fat.
