Imagine doing 20,000 sit-ups in just 30 minutes. Even though that would be an impossible feat to accomplish, imagine the physical results you could achieve if it were possible. Now, with an FDA-approved treatment called EMSCULPT, it is attainable!
For patients in Seguin, TX and the surrounding areas of Austin, Houston, San Antonio, San Marcos, and New Braunfels, board-certified medical doctor Dr. Melanie Carreon is proud to offer this revolutionary and effective treatment at LCS Medical Spa. To help understand if EMSCULPT is right for you, here are some of the basics about the technology, how the treatment works, and what results you can expect.
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT can be thought of as part of the growing collection of noninvasive, nonsurgical body contouring treatments, such as CoolSculpting and SculpSure. The EMSCULPT machine uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to cause muscle contractions beyond what is possible naturally. These are called supramaximal contractions. Through EMSCULPT, patients can experience contractions equal to doing 20,000 sit-ups in just 30 minutes. As the contractions occur, the muscles are stimulated to release enzymes that ultimately trigger the breakdown and implosion of fat cells through a chain of reactions. At the same time, muscles experience a cellular change that causes them to thicken and become stronger. The end result, which happens after just a handful of sessions, is better muscle tone, a firmer appearance of the area, less fat, a reduction in inches, and a better overall contour.
What is the Treatment Process?
While it sounds almost too good to be true, EMSCULPT is one of the easiest, quickest, and painless procedures for reducing fat and building muscle on the market today. It also requires no downtime and produces visible results far more quickly than other similar treatments.
During an EMSCULPT session with board-certified medical doctor Dr. Melanie Carreon at LCS Medical Spa, patients can kick their feet up and relax during the treatment which usually lasts about 30 minutes. Patients are encouraged to have an average of 4-8 treatments spaced approximately 2-3 days apart, depending on Dr. Carreon’s recommendation, to achieve maximal results. After each virtually painless treatment, there is no downtime required. Patients often describe feeling sore the next day, as if they had done a lengthy workout the day before.
What Areas Can EMSCULPT Be Used On?
Patients in Seguin, TX and the surrounding areas of Austin, Houston, San Antonio, San Marcos, and New Braunfels can utilize EMSCULPT to improve muscle tone and encourage fat loss in their abdomen, and buttocks. Our team of experts at LCS Medical Spa can answer all of the questions about how EMSCULPT is used in these specific areas.
What Results Can I Expect?
One of the absolute best features of EMSCULPT is the speed with which visible results appear. Within a week, patients typically report a significantly noticeable change in their body contour, and just 2-4 weeks after their last treatment session, final results are realized.
Firming of the area, an increase in muscle tone and definition, and a loss of fat are all reported as commonly visible results for patients of LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX.
Is EMSCULPT Safe?
For patients in good health, EMSCULPT is widely regarded as a very safe treatment and is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). An important thing to note is that, because of the electromagnetic technology used in the treatment, patients with metal or electronics (plates, screws, implants, pacemakers, etc.) should not use EMSCULPT. The knowledgeable team at LCS Medical Spa can help determine your specific risk factors and further walk you through the safety and technology of the treatment.
Who Is A Good Candidate for EMSCULPT?
As with any cosmetic procedure designed to promote fat loss or building of muscle, EMSCULPT is not to be used in place of a healthy diet and regular exercise. The ideal candidates for the treatment are in relatively good shape and good health, exercise regularly, and have a BMI of 30 or less. Patients should not expect a large volume of weight or fat loss using EMSCULPT, and it is not a replacement for traditional weight/fat loss procedures such as liposuction. The best way to find out if EMSCULPT is right for you – and to learn more about how it can help you build muscle and tone up – is to let board-certified medical doctor Dr. Melanie Carreon evaluate you. Dr. Carreon is committed to providing the highest level of patient care and will take the time to answer all of your questions and recommend the best treatment plan for you, whether it is with EMSCULPT or one of the other body sculpting technologies offered at LCS Medical Spa.
