Emsculpt—Burn Fat and Build Muscle at the Same Time

Rhonda Swant - Thursday, October 18, 2018

Are you living in the Salt Lake City area and are pretty dedicated to your workouts? Do you hit the gym several times a week, try to eat right but still have some “problem” areas? Have you given birth and find that no matter what you do, you can’t get your abs to tone up? Do you want a tummy tuck or a butt lift but are afraid of the inevitable downtime and risks to surgery? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then we have an innovative new treatment which might be just what you are looking for. It’s Emsculpt, a non-invasive treatment that will give you the results you’ve dreamed of but haven’t been able to achieve on your own.

What is Emsculpt?

You might have seen us on Good Things Utah and are wondering what is Emculpting. It’s a FDA approved treatment that can burn fat and build muscle at the same time in a targeted area such as the stomach or buttocks. It works by HiFEM (High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) energy that induces your muscles to contract. This technology induces a supramaximal muscle contraction which is a stronger muscle contraction than you could achieve doing situps or ab crunches on your own. No matter how much you work out, you’re not going to get the results you could get with a few sessions with the Emsculpt machine. In fact, one session with the Emsculpt is like doing 20,000 situps.

What does this treatment feel like?

There are no needles involved or heat. Basically, you lie down on a table and relax. We put two electromagnetic paddles on the area you want worked on. We turn the machine on and can adjust it to your preferences. You will feel your muscles contracting. The treatment lasts about 30 minutes. You may be a little bit sore afterward, like you would with a good workout, but soreness is minimal because the treatment reduces the amount of lactic acid which can build in your muscles.



How long are the treatments? How many treatments do I need to do to see results?

Typically, we recommend 4 30-minute treatments within a two week period. You will be able to see and feel some initial results after the first treatment but will see most of your results 2-4 weeks after your last session. You will see some results continuing for up to 6 months.

Who is an ideal candidate?

Anyone can benefit from Emsculpt! The ideal candidate is someone who has tried to workout but can’t quite get their abs or buttocks sculpted the way they want.

Are there side effects? Downtime?

There are no side effects and no downtime. This procedure is almost too easy. No pain, no anesthetic, no burning, no surgery. And great results.

Is it permanent? How long does it last?

No muscle toning is permanent. To maintain the sculpted look you get from Emsculpt, you must keep working out and working those muscles. Some people will do “touch ups” every 6 months to a year.
