Emsculpt in Portland, OR
What is Emsculpt®?
Toning your body requires fat loss and muscle development. Emsculpt® offers a unique solution for your body sculpting goals. Most procedures focus on fat reduction. Emsculpt® works by helping you build muscle which may increase your fat metabolism. Electromagnetic energy is delivered through an innovative device that causes your muscles to contract, much the same way as when you exercise. The difference is that a single Emsculpt® treatment equals 20,000 contractions in just 30 minutes.
Benefits of Emsculpt® at NW Laser
Emsculpt® is a non-surgical body contouring solution that requires no downtime. You simply relax while the Emsculpt® device does all the work. Studies have shown that four sessions result in a 15% reduction in fat and a 19% increase in muscle mass. While other treatments remove fat, Emsculpt® builds the muscle you need for a toned, tightened body.
How Does Emsculpt® Work?
Emsculpt® is designed with High-Intensity Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology that stimulates contractions deep in your muscles. Rather than directly eliminate fat cells, Emsculpt® treatments increase muscle mass, boosting your metabolism. A strong metabolic rate means that you burn more calories, and your body will rely on fat stores for caloric needs.
Areas Treated with Emsculpt®
Emsculpt® is FDA-approved for muscle development on the buttocks, abdomen, legs, and arms. Emsculpt® for your buttocks builds the gluteal muscles for a shapely, firm appearance. Emsculpt® for your thighs and calves removes fat on the inner and outer thigh and gives your legs a more defined look. If you have sagging in your upper arm area, this is a great option for you. Emsculpt® arm treatments build the biceps and triceps.
What to Expect with Body Sculpting
If you are new to non-surgical body sculpting treatments, you may have a lot of questions. From the first days of liposuction, cosmetic body contouring has evolved into a selection of options that reduce or eliminate downtime while producing results that look completely natural. Emsculpt® results typically take up to one month after the last treatment in the series. Most people need up to four treatments to see a difference in muscle tone and fat reduction. You can maintain the results by working out or continuing your Emsculpt® treatments at NW Laser. Emsculpt® side effects are similar to what you may experience after an intense workout at the gym. Your muscle may feel sore. There is no risk of bruising, swelling, numbness, or other symptoms.
Best Candidates for Emsculpt®
The best candidates for Emsculpt® are people who are near their ideal weight for at least one year. This is not intended to be a weight loss solution. For women who are interested in Emsculpt® treatments after childbirth, we recommend that you lose as much fat as possible with diet and exercise for at least 12 months before considering Emsculpt®. This gives your body time to adjust after pregnancy. Your hormones may still be out of balance which can cause unexpected fat gain and muscle loss. Waiting ensures that you enjoy the benefits of your Emsculpt® treatments for as long as possible.
Your Emsculpt® Treatments in Vancouver
At NW Laser, we provide our patients with relaxing and rejuvenating Emsculpt® treatments. You lie back on the Emsculpt® bed, and we place the device on the target area. The HIFEM energy stimulates your muscles, and most people describe a pulling sensation. There is no pain or discomfort. After the treatment, we recommend that you treat any soreness much the same way as after an intense workout at the gym. Drink plenty of water, gently massage the area, and apply heat when needed. Be sure to stay active on the days after your treatment. This helps to keep the muscles loose and may reduce the risk of cramping.
