What does functional body contouring mean?
Generally speaking, people visit Lohi Lipo Laser with the intention of using non-invasive means to improve their appearance. SculpSure, for example, is the most effective device to destroy stubborn fat pockets on the abdomen, legs, bra line, and under the chin. But what SculpSure, Coolsculpting, and many other devices are unable to do is treat the weak musculature underneath.
That’s where Emsculpt comes in. In cases where weak stomach or gluteal muscles may accentuate some of those stubborn fat pockets, a functional body contouring approach is key to sucess. Emsculpt accomplishes this through its ability to tighten the targeted muscles while simultaneously destroying fat.
Emsculpt’s original purpose
Although most recognized for its body contouring capabilities, Emsculpt was originally created as a physical therapy tool. It’s highly effective at improving pain and muscular imbalances related to injury.
Those with chronic low back pain, for example, are great candidates for Emsculpt treatments. That’s because weakened core and glute muscles are frequently both a cause and contributor to chronic back pain. In addition, those healing from a knee injury or muscle tear, see great benefits in their recovery.
With that said, medical experts observed a surprising positive side effect from these treatments: improved muscle strength, definition, and local fat loss. This finding ultimately led Emsculpt to evolve into today’s leading non-invasive body sculpting device.
How does Emsculpt work?
Emsculpt is FDA approved to tone muscles and destroy unwanted fat. It utilizes a unique technology called High Intensity Focused Electromagnetics (HIFEM) to stimulate intense muscle contractions. This causes the body to break down local fat cells in order to provide the targeted muscles with the energy needed to make those contractions.
A single 30 minute session of Emsculpt produces the equivalent of twenty thousand crunches or squats. Though it may sound like it would cause extremely sore muscles, this device continuously cycles through various settings to break down lactic acid buildup during the treatment. That means, you may continue on with your day after each treatment with minimal to no soreness.
What sets Emsculpt apart from its competitors?
From belts to devices, there are a variety of options on the market seeking to match what Emsculpt offers. However, they are all lacking one critical component: technology. BTL (the founder of Emsculpt) has dedicated years to fine tuning their protocols to ensure optimal aesthetic and functional results.
Furthermore, unlike its competitors, Emsculpt provides consistent, proven results. On average, clients see a 16% increase in muscle mass and a 19% reduction in fat in the targeted area after completing their treatment regimen.
