Emsculpt is the first and only FDA-cleared treatment that builds muscle mass, enhances muscle definition, improves core strength. It's been clinically tested in seven peer-reviewed studies to tone and build muscle in the body.
This type of treatment is ideal for those who are close to their goal weight but need a little help getting toned, or who want to increase their core strength or stamina. It's also a great treatment to give you that extra push you need to prep for bathing suit season.
During an Emsculpt treatment, applicators are placed either on the abs or buttocks and used to send high intensity focused electromagnetic pulses. These pulses cause supramaximal contractions not normally achievable through voluntary muscle action.
To put it in perspective, one Emsculpt treatment is equivalent to 20,000 situps or 20,000 squats in 30 minutes!
We offer complimentary consultations to our Palo Alto and San Francisco clients interested in achieving a more toned look with Emsculpt. During this time, you will meet with one of our body experts, who will talk through your goals with you and help you determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Typically we find that those who are close to their fitness goals, but still have some loose or flabby skin, are ideal candidates for Emsculpt while those with pinch-able fat who are looking for greater fat reduction may be better candidates for our CoolSculpting treatment.
If we find that you are a fit for Emsculpt, you can expect to come in for around four 30-minute treatments over a period of two weeks for maximum results. At SkinSpirit, we always customize our treatments toward each individual patient.
The treatment itself is not a painful one - it feels like vibrations and contractions - and you won’t experience any downtime afterwards.
After your first Emsculpt session, you may experience some tightening and an increase in strength. The full effect of your results can then be seen approximately 30-60 days after your last session. Clinical studies have shown up to 16% increase in muscle mass.
To maintain your results, a booster treatment is often recommended 3-6 months later - similar to how you need to keep exercising to maintain results achieved from working out.
If you think you may be a candidate for Emsculpt, we invite you to come in for a complimentary consultation at our Palo Alto or Noe Valley clinic. Please give us a call to schedule your appointment with one of our body experts at (855) 383-7546.
We hope to expand Emsculpt to more SkinSpirit locations soon, so keep a lookout for an update from us.
