Is Body Sculpting Right for You

Body Sculpting

Fat reducing and body contouring

This is a very broad question because there are many different types of body sculpting treatments that are used for specific concerns and body areas. Surgical body contouring could include liposuction that treats large areas of excess body fat. Other surgical body contouring procedures could include a tummy tuck where excess skin is removed and the underlying muscles are tightened.

These procedures often come with lengthy downtime and undesirable side effects, however. This makes non-invasive body contouring treatments a great alternative.

Emsculpt body sculpt

There are various nonsurgical body sculpting and we all have different body aspirations, but once you know what you want to accomplish, finding the non – invasive treatment that is right for you will be easier. Most nonsurgical body contouring treatments have limited downtime and can create outstanding results for many body parts. The biggest issue is making sure the practitioner offers the body sculpting methods that are best for your concern or refers you to someone who does. Some examples of body sculpting procedures:

Nonsurgical Body Sculpting Treatments

Morpheus8 is a face and body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency along with microneedling. This non – surgical treatment can melt fat and tighten the skin in specific areas to get the body shape you are looking for.

Exilis Elite is a radiofrequency body sculpting procedure that uses focused ultrasonic waves to melt stubborn body fat, reduce cellulite, tighten skin and contour the body. RF body sculpting sessions are usually done weekly in a package of 6.

Body RF skin tightening procedures safely heat the skin to 104 degrees to stimulate the body’s natural processes. It will minimize the appearance of cellulite, and dimpling while tightening skin and reducing fatty bulges.

Contrast lypolysis uses FDA approved cryolipolysis technology, Coolsculpting, along with controlled heat at specific intervals to safely remove subcutaneous fat. This combination increases the average fat reduction to 30% from a single procedure.

Body Sculpt or Emsculpt blends Focused Monopole Radiofrequency with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) that causes deep muscle stimulation to build muscle mass while burning through fat cells. It strengthens, tones, and firms the abdomen, buttocks, arms, calves, and thighs, greatly boosting your exercise regimen. This article focuses on this procedure and outlines some of the reasons body sculpting might be great for you.

Who is a Good Candidate for Body Sculpting?

The ideal candidate for Body Sculpt or Emsculpt is fit, reasonably healthy, and wants to tone trouble areas. This non – surgical non-invasive treatment can be used to treat numerous body parts such as the abs and butt, as well as smaller areas like the arms (biceps and triceps), calves, and thighs. It is not suited for someone who is obese and looking for drastic weight loss results. To qualify for most body contouring procedures, you must have a body mass index of 30 or less.

Does Body Sculpt Work on a Fat Belly?

For people who are at their ideal weight but dealing with unwanted belly flab, this Emsculpt alternative is the perfect solution. This non – surgical treatment will reduce abdominal fat and increase abdominal muscle mass. If you’re more concerned with getting rid of excess body fat, then other nonsurgical fat reduction treatments like Contrast Lipolysis or Morpheus8 Body might be the way to go. Then you could follow up with Body Sculpt for toning and muscle definition.


How does this nonsurgical body sculpting work?

Similar to EMSculpt Neo, Body Sculpt uses a non-invasive HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology that activates 100 percent of the muscle 20,000 times in a span of 30-minutes. This body contouring technique can affect the muscle in a way that you couldn’t do voluntarily with regular exercise activities. When performing normal HIIT exercises such as crunches, you’re activating approximately 50 percent of that muscle group every three to five seconds.

Benefits of Emsculpt Alternative

  • Abdomen – tighter stomach and a more defined six-pack
  • Buttocks – lifted and sculpted butt
  • Arms – increase the size of triceps and biceps while reducing wing fat
  • Legs – reduce thigh circumference and slim down saddlebags
  • Calves – improve the shape and size

How to Prepare for Body Sculpt?

Since Body Sculpt is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment, patients won’t need to fast or undergo rest time prior to treatment. Just show up to your appointment on time and be at your stable body weight.

It is recommended to keep your body hydrated to reduce cramping. Dress in comfortable, light clothes. Do not bring any electronic devices such as cellphones, watches, tablets, and computers to the treatment room, as the electromagnetic energy will heat metal and harm electronic devices. Remove all jewelry and metal objects such as coins, belts, underwire bras, or credit cards. Do not wear the Lulumelon brand during your treatment session as some of its leggings contain metallic fibers.

What to Expect During an EMSculpt Alternative Procedure?

The actual Body Sculpt process is relatively painless. The device straps on over your treatment area, and then our certified body sculpting instructors will adjust the paddles and power level. They will gradually adjust the power and work their way up to a comfortable but effective level for effective muscle contractions.

The contractions occur every few seconds apart. After a few contractions, the machine will switch over to a tapping motion to help break up the lactic acid that’s being released by your muscles. Most patients who had this body contouring report feeling the muscle working but with little discomfort.

What Are The Possible Side Effects of Body Sculpting?

For the average patient, most nonsurgical body sculpting treatments such as Body Sculpt are considered low-risk treatment procedures with no established side effects.

Body Sculpt, EMSculpt, and similar treatments should not be received by patients with metal and electronics (pacemakers, IUDs, piercings, etc.) in their bodies. These objects could interfere with the electromagnetic waves during these RF body sculpting procedures. These treatments should also be avoided during pregnancy. Body Sculpt can be a great option post-pregnancy however, to improve diastasis recti, the partial or complete abdominal separation experienced by about two-thirds of pregnant women.

What to Expect After The Body Sculpt Procedure?

Like EMScuplt, Body Sculpt is a non-invasive treatment with no downtime. You might experience mild soreness but you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately after your session. Following treatment, the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes.

How Many Body Sculpt Treatments do I need to Achieve Results?

A minimum of 4 treatment sessions 2-3 days apart is recommended, with each session being 30 minutes long. The right number of treatments for you will be determined based on your specific goals and your circumstances such as your body shape and fitness level. Completing a full treatment series is essential for optimal results. Some patients might need maintenance treatment sessions every 6-12 months after completing their initial program.

How Fast Will I See Results From Body Sculpt Treatments?

Most patients see tangible treatment results after four to six sessions, 2-3 days apart scheduled within 2 weeks. You might experience improvements in as little as 2 weeks after treatment, but the full scope of results appears within three months. The outcome varies from person to person, and an exact result cannot be predicted. Some patients may need more sessions than the recommended initial series depending on their goals and specific circumstances. Others may need additional new treatments every 6-12 months to maintain their results after their first treatment plan. Keep in mind though, that a successful outcome can be affected by smoking, alcohol consumption, as well as eating disorders, or the use of certain medication.
