Unfortunately, many American women lack self-confidence and most of the time, it can be linked to how they are overexposed to celebrities and social media. This can make participating in things like dating even more stressful for women. Around 50% of women have negative body image and 67% of women worry about their appearance at least once a week. The world of plastic surgery and dermatology is always changing and advancing and there are plenty of treatments for those looking to fulfill their body goals. Emsculpt®, which is an FDA cleared non-surgical body contouring treatment, is a unique and increasingly popular treatment offered at Marin Medical Aesthetics in San Rafael. Emsculpt® is well-known for possessing innovative muscle toning and fat burning effects. The best thing about this treatment is that it is non-invasive, which means no surgery and zero downtime. So, for those who are not interested in getting liposuction or a tummy tuck, Emsculpt® is a great option.

How does it work?

An Emsculpt® procedure is fairly quick and painless. It consists of a device that has a rubber pad, which is placed on the targeted muscle area, usually the abs, thighs, or buttocks. When ready, this pad will produce intense electromagnetic waves, which causes involuntary muscle contractions. The process is what causes contractions that trigger free fatty acids to release. The result is fat deposits breaking down and muscles increasing in tone and strength. Emsculpt® gives results that are similar to the result you would get from doing a sit up or lunge. It gives the same effect as exercising, which means the body will respond to the wear and tear. The stimulation causes by muscle tissue to rebuild and repair, resulting in firmer muscles. Patients even report feeling the same soreness after Emsculpt® that they feel after an intense workout.

Emsculpt® is perfect for those trying that have been trying to work off that last bit of belly fat or need a boost in getting their butt firmer but haven’t seen any results. While good old-fashioned exercise is a great way to remain healthy, it is often not effective when it comes to trying to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat, which are usually caused by hormonal and aging changes. Emsculpt® is not necessarily a solution to weight loss but is a tool to help you along the way. The procedure will give you the advantage you need to get the results you desire – all without having to go under the knife.
