Emsculpt Body Toning

Emsculpt is a technology that forces targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. That’s like performing 20,000 perfect bicep curls, sit-ups, or squats in half an hour. Emsculpt can be used on all of the major muscles you typically try to target in the gym, including the glutes, abs, biceps, triceps, and calves. An added benefit of Emsculpt is that you can truly target muscles to get the results you want.

Anyone who has tried to get “gains” at the gym knows how time-consuming and frustrating it can be. There are also inherent risks associated with continued strength training because sometimes there’s a fine line between the weight that a muscle needs to be strengthened and the amount needed to be torn. Emsculpt removes all of the frustrations and risks of strength training while giving you the results without you having to lift a finger (or a dumbbell). It is impossible to exclusively target muscles like the glutes at the gym, since lunges and squats require a number of assister muscles in the core and legs in order to perform these exercises.

Building Strong Muscles

Strong, toned muscles serve two functions. They protect our bones while increasing our physical fitness and they also serve an aesthetic function. However, building muscles and targeting key muscles takes a lot of time, work, and oftentimes expenses since feeding muscles high-quality proteins on a daily basis is a costly undertaking. That is why Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care offers Emsculpt, a revolutionary technology that is completely non-invasive. Emsculpt contours and sculpts specific muscles, resulting in hypertrophy (the enlargement of muscles).

Some benefits of Emsculpt include:

  • Strengthen, enlarge, and tone only the muscles you want
  • Reduces Diastasis Recti
  • Back pain reduction (Yes- Emsculpt strengthens your core, therefore strengthening your back!)
  • Visceral fat reduction
  • Enjoy short 20-30-minute sessions per treatment site
  • Once all initial treatments are complete, maintenance sessions are only necessary every 3-4 months
  • Get all of the benefits of strengthened muscles without breaking a sweat
  • No incisions, needles, or downtime

Emsculpt is comfortable and many clients scroll through their phone or catch up on an audiobook while undergoing their treatment. The sensation of Emsculpt can feel a little strange during your first treatment since your muscles are truly responding with supramaximal contractions as if you are performing strength training moves. It’s important to still “feed” your muscles protein after an Emsculpt session just like you would after a session at the gym. It is also normal to feel sore or delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in the days following Emsculpt. Remember, your muscles really have performed 20,000 strength moves, even though you never broke a sweat.

How Emsculpt Builds Bigger Muscles

Muscles undergo hypertrophy when just the right amount of stress is placed on them. This is traditionally performed with strength training exercises, such as lifting weights. Ideal amounts of stress cause micro-tears in the muscles, which tells our muscles they need to repair themselves bigger and stronger in order to sustain that level of stress in the future. The repair process requires protein, and ultimately it is the repair of muscular tissue that leads to stronger muscles and a pleasing look.

Supramaximal Contractions? Yes!

Your muscles don’t know if they are performing supramaximal contractions due to Emsculpt or a traditional strength training routine, so the results are identical. However, nobody can perform 20,000 flawless strength training moves consecutively, let alone in 30 minutes. That’s why you don’t need a large number of initial sessions in order to see fantastic results. The exact number of sessions you’ll require will vary based on your body and goals, but typically 6 Emsculpt treatments spaced 2-3 days apart per site is the average.

FAQs About Emsculpt Body Toning

What are the contraindications for Emsculpt?2020-10-29T12:06:51-08:00

Patients that have electrical implantable devices like a pacemaker or internal defibrillator, patients with Copper IUD (Mirena is OK) or any other metal implants in the treatment area not candidates for this treatment.

What can I do to maximize the Emsculpt treatment results?2020-10-29T12:06:07-08:00

It is very important to be well hydrated before Emsculpt treatments just like it is when your workout in the gym. Well hydrated muscle performs better, poorly hydrated muscle will cramp up and you will not be getting optimal treatment or results. So, remember to drink water, not coffee, before your treatment.

What exactly are supramaximal contractions?2020-10-29T12:05:14-08:00

Supramaximal contractions are the type of high-tension muscle contractions necessary to achieve optimal muscle growth. These contractions go beyond the highest amount of tension that muscles can manage on their own.

What if I want toned muscles, not bigger muscles with Emsculpt?2020-10-29T12:04:21-08:00

Although the term “toned” is commonly used to refer to muscles, it is not actually a muscular state. Toned muscles typically mean muscles that are strengthened combined with a low enough body fat to have those muscles show. It’s very possible to have strong muscles while also carrying excess fat, which means those muscles are not visible. This is why it’s so common to pair Emsculpt with an additional body sculpting treatment like CoolSculpting or Vanquish Me to further reduce excess fat. Many women worry that they will get “too big” when they focus on muscular growth—don’t worry. The balance of your hormones will prevent too much bulking, so you can engage in strength training or Emsculpt with peace of mind.

How quickly will I see Emsculpt results?2020-10-29T12:03:01-08:00

Results from Emsculpt are not immediate, just like results from the gym are not. It takes muscles time to repair and grow after a strength training session or Emsculpt. Clients typically start to see results a few weeks after their initial treatment with full results 6-8 weeks after the final treatment.
