16% less muscle and 18% less fat in 4 sessions, this is the promise of The Emsculpt which causes muscle contractions equivalent to 20,000 squats on the glutes or 20,000 crunches on the stomach for a redesigned silhouette. Decryption and test.
What is Emsculpt?
Launched in the United States in 2018, this new machine Coming from the Czech Republic quickly created a buzz with American stars who swear by it to reshape the buttocks and abdomen in just 4 sessions of 30 minutes. The principle ? High intensity focused electromagnetic waves penetrate up to 7 cm deep under the skin and cause so-called “supra-maximal” contractions that increase muscle mass and burn fat with visible results on the silhouette after only two weeks. Amazing!
For whom and what results to expect?
Emsculpt is not a slimming technique, but a body sculpting, that is to say, it aims to redraw the silhouette. It is perfect for those who need shaping a gluteus a little soft or firm a belly a little relaxed, like after a pregnancy for example. People with high overweight are not eligible for the Emsculpt. Just like pregnant or breastfeeding women or people carrying a pacemaker, a pin or any other metallic device). At the end of the four recommended sessions (spaced 48 to 72 hours), the belly is firmer and the buttocks raised. Besides the advantages on the silhouette, the Emsculpt has posture benefits, especially to relieve back pain, and on morale since you leave each appointment with the feeling of having had an invigorating sports session. To prolong the benefits, it is advisable to practice a regular sports activity and eat a balanced diet. This revolutionary ultra safe technique, approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), only delivered in medical offices by an aesthetic doctor, an aesthetic surgeon or an aesthetic dermatologist, still has a price. Count around 500 euros per session, or the pretty sum of 2000 euros for the full protocol, to which must be added a maintenance session every 3 to 6 months. An investment which must therefore be carefully considered before launching.
We tested for high-pitched buttocks
After a quick diagnosis to check that there are no contraindications and a taking photos to attest to a before-after at the end of the protocol, you lie on your stomach. The doctor installs two applicators held by a strap, directly on the skin on each buttock. The intensity of the waves starts gradually (similar to electrostimulation) to reach level 100 (the maximum). If the sensation is not painful, it is still surprising, even uncomfortable, despite the phases of rest and no stiffness felt afterwards. After the first session, the following are easier. Indeed, the muscle has become accustomed to being strongly contracted and even seems to ask for more since the last session goes like a letter to the post. At the end of the 4 sessions, the transformation of the buttocks is not radical, but they are undoubtedly firmer and more bulging. During sports, performing gluteal exercises is much easier. This new technique therefore keeps its promises of muscle toning. However, on the scale side, no weight loss observed at the end of the program. To recheck in 3 months the time required for the elimination of fat to be finished. To be continued.
