It’s not uncommon for men and women to struggle with stubborn pockets of fat despite being at a healthy weight and having great diet and exercise habits. No matter how committed to their fitness journey they may be, some people are just not able to achieve the muscle tone they desire. For those familiar with this fitness rut, EMSCULPT treatments at our Atlanta practice may be the breakthrough you’re looking for.
Read on to learn more about this revolutionary treatment and how it can help you finally achieve your body goals.
The EMSCULPT Treatment
EMSCULPT differs from other nonsurgical body contouring treatments because it reduces fat through muscle building. It’s designed to improve the shape and tone of the abdomen and buttocks without causing major discomfort or disruption in your day.
During a treatment, the EMSCULPT machine uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions. This builds muscle to a degree that cannot be achieved by exercise. For example, doing a crunch or a squat will activate the muscle for a few seconds. In contrast, the EMSCULPT device will cause that same muscle activation—20,000 times in a 30-minute period.
As your muscles repeatedly contract at that incredibly high rate, your body burns fat and gets toned a lot faster. Thanks to this process, most people will see about a 16% increase in muscle development and a 19% reduction of fat in the treated areas.
You’ll typically need 4 treatments spaced 2 to 3 days apart to get the best results. Appointments don’t require any downtime, recovery or prep. Some people report feeling sore for a few days afterward, as if they had just completed an intense workout.
EMSCULPT and Your Fitness Journey
Because EMSCULPT creates fat loss through muscle building, it’s a great option for not only getting rid of stubborn areas of fat, but also for achieving more toned and defined muscles. This may help you finally see the results you’ve been working toward. In addition, it may provide a boost of motivation to fuel your health efforts in the future.

EMSCULPT also allows you to spot-treat certain areas of the body, which is difficult to do through exercise alone. If you work hard to stay healthy but struggle to create the shape you’re looking for, a series of treatments may help you take your look to the next level.
EMSCULPT is a great option for anyone close to their ideal weight who is ready to reach their ultimate goal of a toned and defined body. If you think EMSCULPT treatments in Atlanta may help you break through a fitness plateau, please contact us online or call (404) 233-3937.
