When you can lie down for 30 minutes and still achieve the results of 20,000 Sit-Ups.
This blog post is brought to you by EMSCULPT. However all thoughts and opinions in this blog post are my own.
I really love technology and gadgets and have heard (and seen the results) from EMSCULPT over the past few months.
So I headed over to Dr. Kanodia’s Beverly Hills office - if you search his name online you can see all rave reviews from beauty editors and celebrities, and his Instagram is full of patients who gush about him so I knew I was in good hands. EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared for the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms and calves.
Nurse Karla explaining to me how EMSCULPT works before the start of my first session.
Utilizes HIFEM magnetic field technology to induce approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per session to strengthen and build muscle, and sculpt the body
You lie on a comfortable bed for 30 minutes as they securely strap-on the EMSCULPT applicator - I got one applicator as apparently my stomach is not that big, but if you are a bigger person i.e a 6 foot guy you may need two applicators.
EMSCULPT is an FDA-cleared and pain-free treatment that addresses both muscle and fat.
My first session, they had the EMSCULPT machine’s strength only up to 80%. According to Karla, the lovely nurse who monitored/helped me throughout my session, most people can only go to 60-70%, as it takes a while to get used to the sessions. Again - it’s not at all painful, but it is weird feeling your muscles contract strongly so I only had the machine all the way to 80%. Karla mentioned that Dr.Kanodia’s himself has had the machine cranked up to 100% full-strength on his first try.
Dr.Kanodia says of all the many non-invasive treatments and machines he has seen and tried - EMSCULPT is his all time favorite and he can’t personally get enough of it.
According to EMSCULPT’s official literature this is how the technology works: The contractions result in a rapid metabolic reaction to strengthen and build muscle. This is the ONLY technology that builds muscle in addition to burning fat, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. It is unlike any other treatment on the market--current body shaping techniques fail to address muscles which greatly affects body contour. EMSCULPT finally goes beyond just waistline reduction and elimination of fat cells to provide a dual treatment that addresses muscle tone as well.
Both Dr.Kanodia and Karla emphasized that EMSCULPT is not a quick fix - but is ideal for those who already have been practicing a healthy lifestyle but needed a bit of extra help to target the muscles. They both also have said that optimal results can be seen about 3 months after treatment.
It is not a ‘magic fix for weight loss” but it does help - my analogy is, if you are a tennis player - the right tennis racket would help you improve your serve, but you need to do the work to start with. Likewise if you need some extra help to tone the abs and butt area (like me), EMSCULPT is a great method to achieve better and faster results.
