EMSculpt – A Fast, Fun and Easy Way to Contour Your Body
As we age, our body chemistry and physical appearance change. One of the changes that the body, and especially the female body, experiences is the rise in the accumulation of fat in the body. Most commonly the fat deposits around our abdomen and internal organs. Add in hormones, slow metabolism with advancing age, and menopause to the equation and we see that it sums up to increased fat deposition on the body.
Now the question arises..how can one manage such an ordeal?
You can change diet, start exercise, or get used to it maybe. But there’s one thing more that I can suggest and that’s EMSculpt.
EMSculpt is a non-invasive treatment whereby the body is contoured with the use of electromagnetic technology. Through this machine, the muscles contract involuntarily. Placed on your abdomen, under 30 minutes, the machine will not only aid in building muscles but also burns fat.
Is EMSculpt beneficial?
Here is a list of benefits that the EMSculpt comes with:
- It’s non-invasive
A procedure done without breaking the skin and into the internal structures of the body holds benefit as it subjects the body to less stress as compared to an invasive one.
The applicator of the EMSculpt machine is placed on the abdomen of the patient and no anesthesia is required during this whole process.
- It will boost metabolism
The food we eat is burned and utilized by the body. This is known as metabolism. An increase in metabolism means that you’re burning (might I add extra) calories and thus maintaining a healthy weight and muscle mass.
EMSculpt aims at increasing the metabolism so the excess fat burns and muscle mass is achieved.
- It reduces the thickness of the fat tissue
The fat accumulated around the abdominal region is burned through the use of EMSculpt by destroying the fat cells.
- It enhances the abdominal muscles (the abs)
With electromagnetic technology, the EMSculpt applicator contracts the abdominal muscles involuntarily around 20,000 times in under 30 minutes. That’s an insane amount of contraction in 30 minutes!
- There is zero recovery time
Recovery time being zero means that after a session with EMSculpt, a person can get back to their routine and carry about their work and activities.
- Helps in weight loss
As we age, we start accumulating fat which adds to our weight. EMSculpt has been used to reduce weight.
Are There Any Possible Side Effects to EMSculp?
Like any procedure in the world, EMSculp comes with certain side effects too that are similar to the ones after a strenuous workout.
- Muscle soreness
A condition where the muscles work more than they are used to. There is microscopic damage but it doesn’t stay for long. It shows that the muscles are healing after stress.
- Hernias can occur
Hernias can happen after a session of EMSculpt if a person hasn’t worked out a bit before, and also if the EMSculpt has been handled poorly by the operator of the machine. A lot of stress given to the muscle can be bad. This is in one way similar to excess or heavy exercise in that they too can cause a hernia.
- Results are not long-lasting
A person who has taken a session of EMSculpt can enjoy their amazing contour for six months or a little more than that. In contrast, exercise has been known to provide long-lasting effects that include a decrease in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndromes, diseases of the heart, and certain cancers. Also, not to mention how the muscles and bones are strengthened through exercise.
