EMSCULPT®, Yes, it’s Worth it!
Lori Wrightington our Director of Laser & Medispa Services authored this blog article to give you the scoop on EMSCULPT®
Several months ago, DLCC introduced a new treatment called EMSCULPT. This is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure that builds muscle and sculpts and tones the body using a proprietary technology called High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. It’s intended for the improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of abdominal muscles and development of a firmer abdomen. It’s also used for strengthening, toning and firming the buttocks.
There is NO downtime and requires NO anesthesia.
Four treatments sessions are scheduled 2-3 days apart and last 30 minutes each. The procedure feels like an intense workout as you relax while lying down. During treatments you will experience 20,000 contractions over 30 minutes. These contractions are involuntary, we cannot achieve these on our own. Results are seen 2-4 weeks after the last session with optimal results improving several weeks following the last session. The ideal candidate is close to an idea weight and is physically active, but wants more defined abs or a higher and rounder butt.
DLCC is the only provider in the Charleston & West Ashley area to offer EMSCULPT.
Wanting to know how the procedure works first-hand, we had several of our DLCC staff try EMSCULPT, including DLCC’s founder and Medical Director Todd Schlesinger, MD, Kalen Ashford, PA and Angelina Ricker, Clinical Assistant. (Note: we will follow-up with another blog on experiences from myself and Medispa Assistant McKenna Bittner, as we are also undergoing this treatment.)
Todd Schlesinger, MD after having a treatment on his abdomen said, “My EMSCULPT treatment was easy. I simply relaxed and let the machine do the work for me. The treatment was effortless as the staff explained everything and I realized how good my core felt afterwards; like I’d just had a great workout”
Kalen Ashford, PA is in great shape, but after having a son 16 months ago, she decided she needed some extra help to augment her normal workout routine.
Kalen commented, “This is an almost painless procedure. It feels like a workout without the work! I really didn’t want to take after photos because I hadn’t changed my lifestyle at all and in fact enjoyed myself with treats at several of Charleston’s festivals and events. But, the results speak for themselves and this was only a month out. I can wait to see what the ultimate results will look like!”
Angelina Ricker, is not only a Clinical Assistant at DLCC, but also a part-time student, model and actress in Charleston. Angelina was very excited to try this procedure. She said,
“EMSCULPT was the easiest 30-minute workout I’ve ever had. Even after my first treatment, I could see a strengthening in my core and my butt was higher and firmer. And yes, I went right back to work after the treatments.”
According to the website RealSelf.com, 92% of those that had EMSCULPT treatments say it’s “WORTH IT.”
Results from clinical studies show:
- a 19% fat reduction
- 16% increase in muscle mass,
- an average of 1.5-inch loss in waistline circumference
- 80% of patients reported a visible lift of buttocks
- an overall 96% patient satisfaction.
This treatment is most optimal for patients who are in overall good health, physically active, are 30 BMI or under, and want to enhance where their regular exercise program plateaus.
