Have you been hearing about a miraculous procedure called Emsculpt but are concerned about the Emsculpting cost?
I heard all the talk about this wonder-treatment too and I was very curious about its claim to help create an amazing core. So when I had an opportunity to give it a try, I jumped at it. Here’s what you need to know about the Emsculpting cost, procedure, results, and my recommendation as to whether it’s worth the investment.
One of my favorite ways to unwind is a visit to my local skin spa, Glo, in Midland, MI. I have been seeing my amazing aesthetics nurse, Salena, for years. She keeps my 40+-year-old skin fresh, hydrated, and keeps me up-to-date on ways to maintain or improve my skin tone, elasticity, and firmness. Needless to say, I fully trust Salena and the team at Glo. So when they recommended I give Emsculpt a try, I was excited to check it out.
Emsculpt claims to build muscle without surgery, needles, or freezing of fat. It does this by applying electromagnetic therapy to targeted areas of the body and instead of freezing away fat cells, Emsculpt creates even muscle tone. One 30 min session claims to be the equivalent of 20,000 crunches, so I was totally in and put Emsculpt to the test.
The Emsculpt treatment creates strong contractions throughout the targeted area – in my case, abs.
My technician started at a low setting, about 10%, so I could get used to it. She eventually worked the contractions up to about 85% strength throughout the 30 min session. Truth – it feels like a pregnancy contraction without the pain if that makes any sense. I can’t say that it was exactly comfortable, but it didn’t hurt either. After a series of contractions, the machine “karate chops” your target area to break down the lactic acid and alleviate sore muscles post-treatment. It was very doable for 30 minutes but I was also ready when it was done.
Afterward, I just went on with my day with no issue. The next day, I felt a little muscle soreness, but nothing I haven’t felt after an ab workout. But, the exciting part is that I did notice more tone in my obliques! And I felt my abs were a little tighter in general. Emsculpt recommends four treatments for the full results and after one treatment, I really want to continue based on the results I saw.
If your trouble area is post-pregnancy belly or simply a little extra around the mid-section that you don’t like, I recommend you check it out.
It helps to eliminate fat, but the main focus is on creating muscle. There’s no easy way to say this politely, but if you have a lot of fluff around the midsection, increase your cardio, eat healthily and then go see Glo for a consultation when you’re close to your target. I say this because the Emsculpting cost is significant, anywhere from $750-1000 per session. I truly believe that Emsculpt can significantly improve muscle tone, strength, and physique but it won’t burn fat. It’s designed to create beautiful, healthy muscle.
