Q: Are the Results of EMSculpt Permanent?
A: EMSculpt is meant to generate results similar to exercising, but at a much faster and more effective pace. The muscle size and tone is not permanent, but can be maintained for a very long period of time with proper diet and exercise and can be easily maintained with a follow up EMSculpt treatment every 3 to 6 months. Fat loss from EMSculpt, when applicable, is permanent.
Q: I Don’t Want to Lose Fat on My Butt. Should I Avoid EMSculpt?
A: Not at all. In fact, EMSculpt was created for the buttocks, and a specific software program ensures there is no fat loss and lots of muscle tone.
Q: Does EMSculpt Increase Strength, too?
A: The short answer is yes. The long answer is that it is not clear whether or not you will notice the improvement, but because EMSculpt increases muscle mass, muscle strengthening should also be expected.
Q: Can EMSculpt Be Used on the Arms, Shoulders, and Other Areas of the Body?
A: It is possible to use EMSculpt off label on the arms and shoulders, and potentially other areas of the body. But the applicators are specifically designed for the abdomen and buttocks, so it is important to talk to Dr. Agha about your desires so that he can see if you are a candidate for off label use. BTL, the company that developed EMSculpt, is also looking into new applicators and Dr. Agha will add that technology as soon as it is released.
Q: Can I Exercise After EMSculpt?
A: Your muscles should be treated similarly to the way that you would treat them after a workout. So if you have EMSculpt on your abdomen, for example, then you should consider giving your abdomen a few days of rest before exercising them. But you can continue to exercise your arms, legs, or any other area of your body if you desire.
Q: Can I Get EMSculpt More Often?
A: Yes. You can have an EMSculpt treatment as often as once a month if you like, although once every 3 to 6 months is traditionally what is used to maintain your results.
Q: Can I Have EMSculpt on BOTH My Abdomen and Buttocks?
A: Yes. If you want to combine treatments, you can do both on the same day provided you have enough time available for treatment.
Q: How Much Does EMSculpt Hurt? Is it Safe?
A: There tends to be minimal pain with EMSculpt. It is not unlike a normal workout. Those that exercise on regular basis often may experience almost no pain. Those that rarely exercise or have not exercised may experience the same discomfort that would otherwise occur after an intense workout.
