Even with the right diet and workout program, some men and women desire that extra touch that will help tighten and define their figure. A noninvasive tightening treatment, EMSCULPT, sculpts the body by both burning fat and increasing muscle. In fact, compared to other nonsurgical body sculpting technologies, EMSCULPT is the only treatment to help men and women simultaneously build muscle while burning fat. Designed for the areas that most people struggle with, the stomach, buttocks, arms, and thighs EMSCULPT employs HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to force muscle contractions during the procedure. These contractions encourage the growth of new muscle fibers and protein strands, which decrease nearby fat cells. An innovative treatment option for patients who want to improve their body shape, EMSCULPT has helped many of our patients achieve their body contouring and aesthetic goals. We invite you to call LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX to learn more about this state-of-the-art cosmetic treatment.
EMSCULPT is ideal for patients who are wanting to eliminate small amounts of stubborn fat and contour their body without the downtime or scarring associated with more invasive fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction. Candidates should be at a healthy weight and also have a healthy skin tone. It is beneficial for both men and women who are wanting to sculpt their stomach, buttocks, arms, or thighs for a more toned appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Carreon will discuss the EMSCULPT treatment and how it can help you. It is important to set realistic expectations as to what results you can expect and help determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
EMSCULPT is performed right inside our treatment suite at LCS Medical Spa. Our patients are made to feel comfortable in a treatment chair and we will explain in detail what will happen during the treatment. One EMSCULPT treatment typically lasts about 30 minutes. You are encouraged to relax as the HIFEM device is placed onto the treatment area. The technology is turned on and Dr. Carreon or a trained member of our staff will monitor and alter the device as necessary throughout your treatment to ensure that you are comfortable and receive your desired results. The procedure feels similar to an intense workout as the muscles contract, but there should be minimal discomfort.
There is no downtime associated with EMSCULPT and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities. We recommend holding off on strenuous activity for a day or so in order to let the treated areas heal. You may experience some slight swelling, soreness, or redness that should subside within a few days. Maximum results for EMSCULPT are typically noticed after a series of treatments. This does vary by patient depending on your personal goals. Most patients receive anywhere from 4 – 8 treatments that are spaced at least 2 – 3 days apart. Following the last treatment session, optimal results can be expected in around 2 – 4 weeks. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your needs and goals.
