The First and Only Medical Device that Builds Muscle and Burns Fat
Dr. Shalini Gupta of the Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center is proud to introduce the first device of its kind known as Emsculpt. Emsculpt was developed by the innovative aesthetics company BTL aesthetics. Emsculpt utilizes the power of 2.5 Tesla magnets to stimulate and contract target muscles. With a unique profile of multiple successive contractions, Emsculpt is able to achieve multiple supramaximal contractions of the muscle in a single treatment cycle. Unlike flexbelts and other tens units, Emsculpt delivers the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or situps to the abdominal area. The procedure paddles can also be applied to the buttocks for a nonsurgical buttock lift. The arms and thighs can also be treated for better definition, permanent fat removal and better tone.
Emsculpt has wide reaching interest across several categories of patients. Body sculpting, fitness and athletic oriented men and women can gain further benefits to their hard work by gaining superior muscle definition and fat loss of the last few stubborn areas. Those who already have a six-pack see even more dramatic definition and toning. Some men also develop diastasis recti which is a separation of the abdominus recti muscle and presents as a pooch of the muscle that is difficult to reduce. Emsculpt is proven via image studies, biopsies and clinical investigations to significantly hypertrophy the muscle and effectively reduce the abdominus recti diastasis.
Women are especially prone to diastasis recti after pregnancy, especially after multiple pregnancies. Emsculpt is proven to reduce diastasis recti, a feat previously achievable only by dedicated physical therapy or by an invasive abdominoplasty surgery (tummy tuck).
Anyone who is struggling with loosing abdominal fat or wishes to firm and tighten sagging buttocks can be evaluated to see if they would be a good candidate and what type of results might be possible. In some cases, it might be advisable and possible to combine Emsculpt with other weight reduction methods or procedures such as Vaser liposuction, Coolsculpting, Vanquish ME, and Sculpsure.
Patients who are unable to exercise due to back problems, knee, hip problems or any other debility or disability can benefit Emsculpt being able to strengthen their core, increase energy level and improve their overall fitness and metabolism status. This would also include the elderly who are unable to exercise and don’t have the core strength to be able to effectively exercise.
It is amazing to note that the fat loss after the procedure is close to 25% and continues to improve for up to 6 months after completion of the treatment cycles. Muscle hypertrophy of 19% is maintained during this time period. Treatments are recommended twice a week for two weeks. Another successful protocol is one treatment weekly for five weeks. Each treatment lasts 30 minutes and feels like muscle contractions. The procedure is not painful at all. Patients report feeling a good muscle soreness as if they have done 20,000 crunches afterwards. Maintenance treatments may be required with time if one is not able to maintain the results with regular work outs. Repeat treatments might be suggested at 6-12 month intervals.
Contraindications to receiving Emsculpt treatments include pregnancy, excess fat over the treatment site, metal implant over the treatment area, pacemaker or defibrillator.
