Until now, the only way to tighten and tone muscles while simultaneously decreasing your body fat percentage was through diet and fitness. At Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek in Denver, CO, we are proud to offer Emsculpt, a body-contouring treatment that both tightens and tones the muscles while removing fat. This treatment focuses on two muscle groups that everyone wants to tighten and tone: the abdominals and the buttocks.

Toning the abs and the glutes takes discipline, healthy eating, and a lot of work at the gym. You need to sweat, perform high-intensity cardio, and eat a near-perfect diet to build your glutes and get washboard abs. Not everyone has the discipline nor the time to develop that kind of body, but everyone wants it. We can help you get the body you may have thought was out of your reach with the help of this revolutionary treatment.

How Long Do Emsculpt Results Last?

Your treatment results depend on your lifestyle. The patients who continue to eat healthily and maintain a consistent exercise routine enjoy the longest-lasting results. The better you take care of your body, the longer your results will last. As long as you work to maintain them, you can enjoy your Emsculpt results permanently.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a completely non-invasive body contouring treatment. It replicates a high-intensity workout, but the benefit is, you won’t have to lift a finger. It works by using electromagnetic energy to stimulate contractions in the muscles in the treatment area. As it contracts your muscles, it increases your overall muscle strength and reduces the number of fat cells in the treatment area.

During treatment sessions, the body releases fatty acids that strengthen the muscles while simultaneously breaking down fat. As a result, you’re left with tighter, toned muscles that are no longer hidden by a layer of stubborn fat. This treatment essentially tricks your body. The repetitive gluteal and abdominal contractions make your body think that you’ve just done the workout of a lifetime, one equivalent to doing 20,000 sit-ups or squats at one time.

Tightening and Toning Without Lifting a Finger

Building the glutes, slimming the abs, and losing fat all at the same time requires the near-perfect balance of diet, strength training, and cardio. That being said, the gluteal muscles and the abdominals are difficult to tone at the same time. This treatment solves that problem and you won’t even have to go on a crash diet or live in the gym to get results.

The treatment device both strengthens the muscles and reduces unwanted fat in the treatment area so that you look better and feel stronger. In just a few, short 30 minute sessions, you’ll get the equivalent of a long, intense, sweaty workout, all from the comfort of our office. And you won’t have to do a single crunch or squat.

Does It Really Work?

Many people are skeptical about this treatment, that is until they see the results. Patients who have chosen this treatment have lost anywhere from 19 percent or more of the existing fat in their treatment area and have increased their muscle mass in that same area by 16 percent or more. The results are proven, visible, and real.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The best results come from following the treatment plan designed by our experts to help you reach your goals. Most people notice an improvement in their appearance after one treatment, and their results continue to improve as they undergo the necessary number of treatments to meet their goals.

We typically recommend that patients undergo four 30 minute sessions over two to three days. Other patients schedule maintenance appointments every several months to maintain their results and continue to improve the appearance of their abdominals and buttocks.

What Happens During a Typical Treatment Session?

Emsculpt sessions are low maintenance. You won’t have to prepare for your appointment or worry about any aftercare protocol. All you have to do is show up. On the day of your appointment, your technician will place the device pad on your treatment area. A loose strap will be wrapped around the pad to keep it in place for the duration of your treatment.

Since the pad may need to be re-positioned during treatment, you should wear loose clothing so that you can experience optimal comfort during your session. Once the treatment begins, you will feel muscle contractions that will deepen as the session progresses. You may also feel an intermittent tapping sensation, which is released by the machine to break down any lactic acid that starts to build up in the muscles.

A Painless Treatment

One of the many benefits of this treatment is that you won’t feel any pain and you won’t even break a sweat. All you have to do is lay back and relax as the device tones your muscles and reduces your fat. As soon as the treatment is over, you’ll be free to go about your day knowing that you are well on your way to a tighter and more toned you.

What to Expect Post-Treatment

Intense workouts can lead to muscle soreness, and so can this treatment. Because it replicates the type of muscle contractions that occur during an extreme and intense workout, you may feel some soreness in the days following your treatment. Not only is this completely normal, but it’s a good sign. It shows that your muscles have been worked and are in the rebuilding process.

After your treatment, you should drink your normal workout recovery shakes because your muscles did go through a workout even if you didn’t and they need the lean, muscle-building protein to recover and rebuild.

Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Emsculpt does what other body contouring treatments do not: it builds and strengthens the muscles. The primary goal of other similar treatments is to remove stubborn fat and tighten the skin in the surrounding area. This treatment provides the best of both worlds as it builds muscle and burns fat. It can also be combined with other body-contouring treatments for additional results.

Coolsculpting, Vanquish, and Ultrashape are some of the body contouring treatments that we offer that pair well with this treatment. Most of these treatments eliminate fat and then you’re on your own. It’s up to you to hire a trainer or begin a workout routine to get tight and toned muscles. With Emsculpt, you can get all of that during your treatment sessions and more, especially when paired with other treatments.

The Benefits

Many people choose body contouring treatments because they don’t want to spend hours in the gym. However, many fitness enthusiasts who love the gym choose this treatment to help them reach the goals that they haven’t been able to in the gym. This treatment has many different benefits and is a good option for those who want to improve their appearance and their strength.

It Tones the Muscles

Whether you are relatively fit or you spend hours at the gym every day, your goal is to get toned. You want to look good in your clothes and swimsuits and feel more confident no matter what you wear. The abdominals and the buttocks require a lot of attention both in and out of the gym. Diet and fitness go hand-in-hand when it comes to building these muscles, reducing body fat, and maintaining your results.

If you’ve been eating well and working out but still aren’t happy with your appearance, this treatment will take your results to the next level. If you’ve plateaued, this treatment can help you break through it and reach goals you may have never thought possible.

It Makes You Stronger

This treatment also will strengthen your muscles and improve your core. Your glute muscles make up the largest muscle group in your body and play a significant role in many of your daily activities. When you strengthen these muscles, you will notice a difference in how you walk, your balance, and your posture.

Additionally, strengthening your abdominal muscles will not only make you look better but will help improve your posture and give you the core strength necessary to help resist injury.

It Takes Your Workouts to the Next Level

Some people work out for strength, others workout for show. Whatever the case may be, this treatment will make you stronger. Exercises that you may have struggled to get through will feel easier and you may even need to add weight to make your exercises more challenging.

Everyone wants to have the strength to perform at least a few pull-ups, but many people don’t realize that pull-ups require core strength which is found in your abdominal muscles. After undergoing these treatments, you may find that you can do more pull-ups than you ever thought possible, thanks to your newly developed core strength.

It’s Convenient

This treatment is convenient. Sessions only take 30 minutes to complete, so you can schedule them during your lunch break if necessary. You won’t have to wear workout clothes or sneakers to this appointment if you don’t want to. You also won’t have to worry about showering after your session because you won’t even break a sweat. You’ll be in and out of your session in no time and on your way to a beautiful, defined body.
