DC Derm Docs is excited to be the first practice to introduce this revolutionary procedure to the Washington DC area!
Is Emsculpt Right for Me?
Answer these 5 quick questions to see if you’re a candidate for the Emsculpt procedure.
*Individual results may vary.
Over the past several years, many men and women have undergone non-surgical body contouring to target excess fat and shrink their waistlines. However, all of these treatments focus on fat reduction and discount an essential component of shaping and defining the abdomen – muscle.
Fortunately, Emsculpt is a new and revolutionary technology that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle. It’s also the world’s only non-invasive butt lift and a safe and effective alternative to a surgical or injectable augmentation.
Here’s everything you need to know about this innovative procedure.
What Is EmSculpt?
While other treatments offer a circumferential reduction of fat, Emsculpt increases muscle mass, decreases subcutaneous fat, and defines the abdomen. It’s also able to lift, firm, and strengthen the gluteal region for a more toned and shapely backside.
*Individual results may vary.
What’s the Science Behind Emsculpt?
Science is the basis for Emsculpt’s reliable and impressive results. This non-invasive device uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to initiate a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, which are more powerful than voluntary muscle contractions.
More specifically, during voluntary muscle contraction, muscle fibers are able to relax after each nervous stimulus. However, Emsculpt generates muscle contraction so rapidly that there is not a period of relaxation.
As a result, Emsculpt causes intense destruction of fat cells, stimulates deep remodeling of muscle tissue, and produces a slimmer, stronger, and well-defined abdomen and butt.
How Many Emsculpt Treatments Are Necessary?
Each treatment lasts 30 minutes and doesn’t require any anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. For best results, a series of 4 sessions spaced 2-3 days apart is recommended.
Is Emsculpt Painful?
Emsculpt is a very comfortable procedure, and patients are able to recline while the device does all of the work. The treatment feels similar to an intense workout, and normal activities can be resumed immediately after.
Emsculpt has a new applicator for arms, thighs, and calves possible. This innovation in body technology is here, as DC DERM DOCS is the first in Washington DC to offer.
Initially only approved for fat reduction and muscle stimulation in the abdomen and buttock area, Emsculpt’s latest arm applicator expands the treatment areas that can be strengthened by its superior HIFEM energy.
How Does Emsculpt for Arms Work?
The Emsculpt process uses Highly Focused Electro Magnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate extra powerful contractions, known as supramaximal contractions.
It is impossible to stimulate supramaximal contractions manually on your own because the body simply shuts down. A treatment is equivalent to 20,000 squats or 20,000 crunches.
Ultimately, this results in building muscle will improve toning, strengthening, and minimizing flabbiness under arms.
Other than stimulating muscle growth, Emsculpt’s HIFEM energy destroys fat cells, resulting in lipolysis. The destroyed cells are collected naturally and processed out of the body in the form of waste.
Emsculpt for Under Arms and Thighs FDA-Approved
This new small applicator is currently FDA-approved for treating the upper/lower arms and inner/outer thighs and there are specifically designed protocols for the treatment of the calves and oblique area.
Minimizing under arm flab or under arm skin laxity with Emsculpt in combination with other modalities–like Exilis–are very effective for aging under arms.
When Can Results Be Noted?
Patients can feel the effects of Emsculpt right away, but it takes two-to-four weeks after their last treatment to see noticeable changes in the size, shape, and tone of their abdomen or buttocks.
Results can continue to improve over the next several months.
