Nonsurgical procedures are more popular than ever, and EMSCULPT is a body contouring favorite at our Baton Rouge practice. This quick, noninvasive treatment can help tone your core or glutes in only a few short minutes. Soon, EMSCULPT also will be available to strengthen your arms and legs. Drew Barrymore recently became an ambassador for EMSCULPT, explaining how the treatment helped her work fitness into her busy lifestyle.
EMSCULPT is an innovative muscle toning option that can fit into your lunch break or after-work activities. Moms can enjoy the same sculpting benefits as Barrymore—and now that the kids are back in school, it may just be the perfect time. If you’ve ever wondered what EMSCULPT could do for you, this blog post will explain the background and benefits of this popular fat burning treatment.
How Does EMSCULPT Work?
During an EMSCULPT session, the patient reclines in their seat while a paddle-shaped machine is wrapped against the core or buttocks. The paddle then emits high-intensity electromagnetic pulses that cause muscles to contract. When used on the abs, this muscle stimulation produces the equivalent of 20,000 crunches in only 30 minutes. Treatment sessions gradually strengthen your muscle fibers while also burning fat, helping you reach your body contouring goals.
What Results Does EMSCULPT Create?
EMSCULPT reduces fat deposits and improves muscle tone—results that were previously only obtainable through intense exercise. It is an excellent body contouring choice for those who prefer nonsurgical procedures. Barrymore claims that EMSCULPT helped heal her abs post-childbirth and made her more confident while in other workout classes.
There is no downtime required after treatment, and you can immediately return to daily life. After the session, your muscles might feel a bit sore, much like you’d expect after a challenging work out. This side effect is temporary and will fade after a few days.
Why Is EMSCULPT Great for Moms?
Everyone’s metabolism is different, and the struggle to tone muscle and lose fat can become more difficult after having children. EMSCULPT is a quick procedure that even busy moms can squeeze into their schedules. With each session lasting only 30 minutes, it’s easy to slot a treatment into a spare hour.
Since the procedure targets core muscles, it’s a low-impact “workout” that creates less wear and tear on weak joints and muscles. This helps prevent common injuries you might experience when running on a treadmill or engaging in other types of intensive cardio.
As fitness experts know, the core is the central, stabilizing muscle group of your body. Maintaining a strong core can positively affect your life in countless other ways.
