Actress Drew Barrymore recently spoke up about how big a fan she is of EMSCULPT, telling Women’s Health the body contouring treatment helped boost her fitness level and raise her confidence. She isn’t alone; more and more men and women are discovering the ways EMSCULPT at Q the Medical Spa in Rochester, NY can help them attain muscle definition and fat loss beyond what exercise alone can achieve.
For busy parents, working professionals, and anyone struggling to break through a fitness plateau, EMSCULPT is a helpful solution that offers significant muscle strengthening and toning without significant extra time in the gym. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at why it has become such a sought-after treatment and how it can help you sculpt your best body yet.
How does EMSCULPT work?
EMSCULPT is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) energy to stimulate muscle contractions, causing the equivalent of 20,000 sit-ups or squats in just 30 minutes. These contractions strengthen muscle fibers while also burning fat, helping you both define your muscles and reveal that new definition.
What is an EMSCULPT treatment like?
At the start of your EMSCULPT treatment, your provider will place a paddle-shaped applicator against your abdomen or buttocks, where it will begin to emit high-intensity electromagnetic pulses. These pulses stimulate rapid muscle contractions.
The whole experience involves zero needles, surgery, or anesthesia, so no recovery is necessary. This is a major reason the treatment has become so popular with Barrymore and other people on the go. You can expect to feel a little sore after your appointment, much like what you would feel after a high-intensity workout. This soreness typically fades after a few days, and it shouldn’t stop you from going about your normal routine.
What results does EMSCULPT create?
EMSCULPT delivers the muscle building and fat reduction that exercise creates, only much faster. Most people need at least 4 sessions spaced 2 to 3 days apart to see the best possible results. You’ll likely notice an increase in muscle definition and tone about 2 weeks after your final session. Barrymore said she loved the way EMSCULPT helped her firm her core and tackle her exercise routine with a new level of strength and confidence, which is another benefit you can expect to enjoy.
Who is EMSCULPT right for?
EMSCULPT is a strong body contouring choice for those who are committed to a healthy lifestyle but are looking to improve their muscle tone and burn fat without surgery. Moms like Barrymore often find the treatment especially helpful for tightening and toning the abdomen after having children, which can be notoriously difficult to do through exercise alone. Barrymore claims that EMSCULPT helped heal her abs post-childbirth and that she now feels more confident, which has helped her feel more self-assured in other workout classes.
