Do you have body fat that just won’t go away even after intense workouts and following a strict diet? EMSCULPT or CoolSculpting may be the answer to your dilemma.

Before you decide to undergo EMSCULPT or CoolSculpting, it is important to ask your doctor a few key questions. These questions will help you to determine if these procedures are right for you, and will also help you to understand the potential risks and benefits.

What Body Areas Can Be Treated with EMSCULPT?

EMSCULPT can treat a variety of body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, love handles, and arms.

Do I Need to Prep for My Body Contouring Treatment?

There’s no need to do anything special before your CoolSculpting or EMSCULPT treatment – just arrive on time for your appointment. That said, it’s best to have these procedures done when your weight is stable. 

If you’ve recently lost a lot of weight, you might want to wait until your weight is more consistent. It’s also important to remember that CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT are not weight loss treatments, but rather tools for contouring your body. These procedures are ideal for people who want to target specific areas of fat or flab, such as the stomach or thighs. They are not meant for people who want to lose weight overall.

What Happens during an EMSCULPT Treatment?

During an EMSCULPT treatment, a specialist will apply a device to the target area. The device will generate high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions.

Is There Anything I Can Do to Boost My Results with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting works by freezing away fat with non-invasive cooling panels. The frozen fat cells are then purged from the body through urine in the weeks and months following the CoolSculpting session. 

To help speed up the process, the provider will massage the treatment areas after the CoolSculpting session. The best results are achieved when the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercise regimen and is patient, as the results of CoolSculpting are not immediate. For most patients, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results.

How Long Until I See Results?

Patients can see results in as little as four weeks. Most patients require four sessions, spaced one week apart, to see the best results.

Will I Feel Pain during an EMSCULPT Treatment?

No, you will not feel pain during an EMSCULPT treatment. However, you may feel some discomfort from the muscle contractions during the treatment.

Wrapping Up

In conclusion, it is important to consult with a qualified medical professional before undergoing any type of body contouring treatment. This is to ensure that the procedure is right for you and that you are a good candidate for the chosen treatment. There are many factors to consider before undergoing EMSCULPT or CoolSculpting, and a medical professional will be able to advise you on whether or not these treatments are right for you.
