Life is full of things that sound too good to be true: fat-free chocolate, younger skin overnight, a free trip to the Caribbean. But what if we were to tell you that we can tighten your tummy and perk up your behind without your having to crunch, lunge, and plank your way there? Too good to be true?
Here at Lasting Impressions Medical Aesthetics, under the direction of Roel Galope, DO, we offer the latest, evidence-based tools that help bring out the best in your body. And when we learned about the Emsculpt® muscle tightening system, we were sceptical, too. But after reviewing the science and the technology behind the product, we knew we had found an effective tool. And our Fair Lawn, New Jersey, area patients agree.
Here’s how Emsculpt can tighten your muscles without you stepping foot in the gym.
The perfect balance
There are many roads to a better body, but most boil down to striking the right balance between muscle and fat. To start, the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn, which is why most effective weight-loss programs include both diet and exercise.
You can diet your way to a slimmer body, but to really keep the weight off and best show off your results, you must tackle the underlying muscles.
Now let’s get to the fun part. Rather than slogging your way through stomach crunches and leg lifts to build muscles, you can tighten and tone your muscles with our Emsculpt treatment. And all you need to do is lie quietly for 30 minutes.
The most effective way to build muscle is to work the muscle. Using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFE™) energy, that’s exactly what Emsculpt accomplishes. This energy travels into your muscles and induces powerful contractions — in fact, they’re stronger than anything you can achieve on your own.
As we deliver this HIFE™, your muscles are getting the workout of their lives, contracting over and over. After registering this activity, your muscles learn that they need to remodel and rebuild in order to keep up with this heavier workload, and they set to work immediately.
Where and when
Most of our patients (both men and women) use Emsculpt to tone their abdomens and reshape their buttocks. The technology is completely noninvasive, so our patients tolerate the treatments very well.
You feel like you’ve had a strenuous workout afterwards, but that’s a sign that Emsculpt is doing what it should. As the old muscle-building saying goes, “no pain, no gain.” In other words, any discomfort you may feel afterwards is just sore muscles that are rebuilding.
We recommend that you undergo a series of Emsculpt treatments — usually four — to get the best results. We space out the treatments by several days to allow your muscles time to remodel between sessions.
About two to four weeks after your treatments, you should realize the full benefits of your Emsculpt therapy.
If you’d like to really bring out the best in your body and better show off your new muscles, you can combine Emsculpt with our BTL Vanquish Me® fat reduction treatment, which uses laser energy to permanently destroy stubborn fat cells.
