I have never been much of a gym person…. Call it lazy or call me lucky genetically but the gym was NOT a place you would generally find me. Recently however, things (my body) has started to change. My tummy isn’t quite as tight and those French fries I ate this week are really starting to show. I knew it was time for a change. My body needed to exercise but where does a single mom working long hours find the time?! The next thing I knew big brother must have heard & all I saw on my social media ads was Emsculpt for the next couple weeks.
I finally took the plunge and called my local Medspa to get more details. During my consultation the nurse described how Emsculpt is the only FDA approved treatment that builds muscle mass, enhances muscle definition and improves core strength. I was then told the shocking fact that one full session of Emsculpt is equivalent to doing 20,000 squats or crunches in 30 minutes! SIGN ME UP!
Now one may ask, how is this even possible?! Well, during Emsculpt, an applicator is placed on either the abdomen or buttocks. The applicator then uses high intensity focused electromagnetic pulses which causes supramaximal contractions which are not normally achievable through voluntary muscle action.
Now my biggest worry; was this going to be painful?! I mean 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes makes me think that not only was this going to be a painful treatment but I most likely be bed ridden due to soreness the next few days after. Boy was I wrong… I would describe the sensation as a pulling feeling that gets more intense over time but not painful whatsoever. I actually got excited with every contraction knowing my little abs would be visible in no time! The next day I was prepared for the worst but woke up perfectly fine! Come to find out, Emsculpt contractions actually help to clear lactic acid buildup in the muscles. Since lactic acid can cause muscle soreness, the Emsculpt process actually PREVENTS patients from getting sore which means zero down time! Genius!
I did a total of 4 sessions which is the normal treatment protocol for Emsculpt patients. These sessions need to be completed during a certain time length so make sure you have some flexibility for two weeks to get your maximal results. The full effect of your results can be seen approximately 30-60 days after your last session.
Now here is the big question. Does it work?! The answer is YES! I am about 20 days after my final treatment and I am already seeing more ab definition. The line that was nonexistent down the center of my tummy is finally there again just like it was in my 20’s! Another thing I notices is that my ab muscles feel stronger than ever. Overall, Emsculpt was absolutely worth the $2,000 I paid for it & I cannot wait to get my booty up to par next!
