Want to tone your abs, arms, or thighs but need help getting the results you want through exercise alone? You might find the answer you’re looking for with Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo treatments.
High-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology is used in both treatments to build muscle and eliminate fat in certain body parts. But how can you tell which treatment will work best for you?
In this blog post, Trilogy Medical Center will help you compare the two treatments and decide which one might be best for your ideal body and achieving glowing skin. Keep reading this!
First, let’s look at Emsculpt, the first treatment to use HIFEM technology. This treatment is meant to build muscle and eliminate fat in specific body parts, such as the arms, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
It sends out high-intensity electromagnetic waves that make the muscles contract. These contractions are like those that happen when you work out, but they are much stronger and more intense.
Most Emsculpt treatments last about 30 minutes, and while the machine does the work, the patient has to lie down. The treatment doesn’t hurt, so you don’t need anesthesia or time to heal afterward.
Even though the contractions can be powerful, most patients find the treatment comfortable and can relax during the session. Regarding results, most clients see the effects after two-four weeks.
Who is Emsculpt For?
Emsculpt can be a good choice for people who want to build muscle and lose fat in certain parts of their bodies, but it also has some downsides. On the plus side, it’s a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t need downtime, and clinical studies have shown that it works.
But the cost of the treatment may be too high for some people, and it may not be suitable for people with specific health problems.
What is Emsculpt Neo?
Emsculpt Neo is a newer treatment that uses both HIFEM technology and radiofrequency (RF) energy. This combination is meant to not only build muscle and burn fat but also tighten the skin in the treated area.
Emsculpt Neo is non-invasive and doesn’t need anesthesia or downtime, just like Emsculpt. Most Emsculpt Neo treatments last about 30 minutes. Because they use radiofrequency energy, patients may feel warm or hot during the treatment.
The contractions are similar to those used in Emsculpt treatments, and most people find the treatment comfortable. The results of Emsculpt Neo treatments are identical to those of Emsculpt treatments.
Muscle tone, definition, and fat loss are all improved. But Emsculpt Neo also tightens the skin, which can be especially helpful for people with loose or sagging skin in the treated area.
Emsculpt at Trilogy Medical Center
Emsculpt is the first and only treatment that improves muscle tone and reduces fat at the same time. Trilogy Medical Center is one of the few places in Utah that offers Emsculpt. As we stated, High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy is used in a portable tool about the size of iron for Emsculpt.
This is the first time energy, specifically electromagnetic energy has been used to shape the body. Many have already tried how Emsculpt works, so it’s your time to test how efficiently this works!
How Emsculpt Functions
High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy is used in a portable tool about the size of iron for Emsculpt. This is the first time energy, specifically electromagnetic energy has been used to shape the body.
Emsculpt Targets Muscle
Emsculpt works on skeletal muscles and makes them do something called a supramaximal contraction, a big muscle contraction. All of the skeletal muscles in a specific area contract at the same time.
For example, when energy is applied to the abdomen, the rectus abdominis, the transverse abdominis, and the obliques all contract simultaneously, which exercise could never do.
Results in Days, Not Weeks
This contraction makes your muscles stronger and speeds up the rate at which your body uses fat in that area. Then voila! Your stomach looks leaner and smaller in just a few days or weeks. It is a big step forward in medicine.
Which treatment is best for you?
Which Treatment is Best?
Which treatment is better depending on your preferences and goals? Here are some things to think about before you decide.
Building Muscle Effect
Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo are effective at building muscle and reducing fat in specific body areas. But Emsculpt Neo may work better for people who want to tighten loose or sagging skin.
Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo are considered safe and don’t hurt the body. They have been approved by the FDA for use in the US and have been put through clinical studies to ensure they are safe and work.
During the treatment, some people may feel like their muscles contract very hard, which can be uncomfortable or slightly painful. But the treatment is usually well-tolerated, and patients shouldn’t feel too much pain during the procedure.
Some patients may feel mild pain or soreness in the treated area after the treatment, like what you might think after a hard workout. But this pain usually goes away after a few days. Patients can return to their everyday lives right after the treatment.
Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo come with some risks, just like any other medical treatment. Some patients may have side effects like muscle pain, muscle spasms, or skin irritation in the treated area. But these side effects are usually mild and short-lived, and most people don’t react badly to the treatment.
Overall, Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo are safe and effective. They are ideal ways to build muscle and lose fat in specific places in the body. Patients can expect improvements in muscle tone and definition, as well as a reduction in fat in the treated area, without the need for anesthesia or recovery time.
Before getting any medical treatment, you should always talk to your doctor or nurse about possible risks or side effects.
