We understand body fat can bother anyone, and not just body-conscious individuals. People are continuously trying out ways to get body fat with a healthy diet, exercise, and more. Some actively pursue it while the rest don’t. However, it still plays a significant role in dictating people’s lives. So, imagine no extended hours of sweating out in the gym or undergoing surgeries to reduce your body fat and getting rid of unwanted fat that had been troubling you for years on areas such as arms, abs, thighs, buttocks, and more. It is possible with body sculpting or body contouring! But what is body sculpting? Body sculpting is a non-invasive procedure to destroy fat cells that reshape body areas. You can get rid of stubborn fat areas on your body with the body’s most natural processes, resulting in leaner and toned targeted regions.

Remember, it doesn’t reduce body weight; instead targets pockets of fat. It is a painless procedure that focuses on body fat but helps build muscle. There are several techniques such as hot and cold treatments, radiofrequency treatments like CoolSculpting, Emsculpt, Emsculpt Neo®, Vanquish ME™, and many more. They are FDA-approved effective techniques with results generated in no time to work on stubborn areas without any invasive procedures. Such non-invasive procedures have no risk of cutting through your skin but consist of some side effects ranging from mild to severe such as:

  • Redness, swelling, bruising around the treatment area
  • Reduced sensation on the targeted area
  • Tingling or aching for some time afterward

Procedure For Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo®

There is no beforehand preparation required for the appointment as it is a non-invasive procedure. The process is entirely painless. It is a 30min procedure where we strap the device panels onto your targeted area (stomach, butt, arm, or calf). The doctor turns the device to its lowest setting. The patient experiences contractions in a few seconds now and then. They are super-intense vibrations that reach your core. We will check in regularly to see if you are comfortable. The doctor then increases the intensity gradually, depending on your comfort level. The results vary depending on person to person.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Patients can see improvement after their first treatment, with their results developing after four weeks of complete series. How long the effects last depend on the patient’s lifestyle! For example, if a person is active and able to maintain their toned body with regular exercise, the results can last longer. It can last indefinitely depending on how well you take care of yourself with a healthy diet and regular exercise!
