To achieve muscles and keep your muscles tone, there's no doubt that exercise and weight training are key. Unfortunately, there are areas of the body that are resilient to exercise. The abdomen and buttocks can be very resilient to muscle development and often are the hardest areas to tone up. LuminaSkin in San Mateo offers Emsculpt to provide people in Palo Alto, Burlingame, and other Bay Area communities clinically proven muscle sculpting without surgery.

When someone first hears about Emsculpt, his or her first thought is probably along these lines, “What is Emsculpt going to do to help me build muscles?”

Emsculpt is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared procedure that revolves around the concept of contracting muscles at a high frequency, resulting in the development of muscle mass. For those in San Mateo, Emsculpt is a new offering at our medical spa. It’s a breakthrough in achieving muscles in areas of the body that do not routinely respond to exercise or weight training, such as the abdomen or buttocks. Additionally, the procedure is considered widely popular due to having no downtime (only requiring time to actually visit the provider’s office) and lasting results.

Most experience visible results after the one treatment, and the most significant results are achieved after the fourth treatment. However, maintenance sessions are recommended after the initial treatments.

If you’re in San Mateo, and think you can benefit from Emsculpt, contact us to schedule a consultation.

1How Does Emsculpt Work?

High intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) technology induces maximum muscle contractions not achievable by voluntary action. When exposed to these intense contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to these extreme conditions.

During normal voluntary muscle contractions, the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus due to the central nervous system’s inability to signal another impulse while the previous one is still in action. Emsculpt® generates impulses that are independent of brain function, and at such a rapid frequency that doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Under normal conditions, the highest amount of tension that could be developed and held physiologically is called maximal voluntary contraction (MVC). Usually, it lasts only for a split second. Contractions with a tension higher than MVC are defined as supramaximal.

2What Does It Feel Like? Does Emsculpt Really Work?

The Emsculpt procedure feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during the treatment.

Emsculpt is FDA-cleared, and has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent US based clinical studies.

3What Are the Advantages of Emsculpt?
The advantages of muscle building through Emsculpt include targeted muscle development without an invasive procedure, no pain, and the ability to return to normal activities right away. Additionally, there is no need to increase exercise regimens or start taking medications or intensive dietary supplement therapies after receiving a Emsculpt treatment.
