How would you like to build your dream booty without breaking a sweat? Well, when Blaire, one of Dr. Chasin’s cosmetic medicine patients heard about this exciting new treatment she knew she had to give it a try. Blaire already takes great care of her figure but has had little success building a bigger bum with exercises such as SoulCycle and squats or lunges around the house. Combined with her healthy lifestyle, Emsculpt can help accelerate the building of muscle in concentrated areas with no downtime or interruptions.
Emsculpt is the first and only FDA-approved non-invasive body contouring treatment that reduces fat while also building muscle. The treatments stimulate muscle contractions in order to build a more lifted bum or tighter abs. Emsculpt is comfortable treatment and unlike other body contouring methods, it is reducing fat and toning the treatment area for natural results that can be maintained by a balanced diet and regular exercise.
Electromagnetic energy is a safe and effective form of energy that has been used in a variety of ways for medical treatment to help regulate heartbeat, stimulate muscles and even control pain¹ but has just recently been adapted for the purpose of body contouring by stimulating muscle contraction. The treatment is very tolerable and some patients even find it to be enjoyable as their body adapts to the rhythm of the muscle contractions.
According to Dr. Chasin, Emsculpt is essentially equivalent to doing approximately 20,000 sit-ups or squats in 30 minutes. This incredible amount of muscle contractions in such a short time is how Emsculpt treatments achieve results in just a two-week treatment cycle.
The recommended treatment process consists of two 30-minute treatments per week for two weeks.
This treatment cycle is far shorter than most other body contouring treatments and results can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Chasin shared with us that often sees patients looking for what they think is a larger buttock; however, the pictures they have for examples actually feature what is considered a more athletic and lifted backside. By adding muscle to the buttocks, Emsculpt provides a lift for a more desirable overall shape.
Emsculpt is currently FDA-approved for treating the abdominal and buttocks areas. The panels used for treatment are actually flat and can be applied over clothing because the energy is penetrating deep into the muscles to stimulate activity. One of the great features of Emsculpt is its ability to be customized for the patient. Depending on a patient’s goals, the fat removal function can be turned off in order to only focus muscle building which may be preferred for treating the buttock area.
The only side effect patients experience is the feeling that they have had a good workout; which for patients like Blaire who regularly does yoga, barre, and pilates classes would not by any means be a sensation out of the norm. Emsculpt is an asset to many patients such as her in the way it allows her to continue with the fitness routines she enjoys without the difficulty of trying to engage and target one specific area with little results.
