08 Jan Too Much Gym Pain for No Gains? Try Emsculpt
When “strong is the new skinny” became a motto that women lived by, we embraced a new, healthier era where strength training was supported by everyone. At Refined MD, we love to see our clients healthy, happy, and strong, but we’ve also seen how tough it can be to achieve those toned muscles everybody wants. Even hours in the gym and a strict diet aren’t always enough to build muscles—and few people have time for that kind of dedication anyway. That’s why we offer Emsculpt, a non-invasive treatment that helps you build real muscles while targeting just the areas you want.
Emsculpt works by forcing muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. It’s the exact same contraction that you would achieve with 20,000 perfect squats, crunches, or bicep curls. Emsculpt paddles are available to treat the booty, tummy, thighs, and arms. However, unlike traditional strength training in the gym, you can max out at an incredible 20,000 reps all with perfect form. Even better, there’s no risk of accidentally increasing the size of other muscles you’d prefer to keep a little smaller.
Your body knows no difference between 20,000 contractions from Emsculpt or from lunges. In fact, Emsculpt is much safer than a gym workout because there’s no risk of poor posture, torn ligaments, or muscle fatigue that will stop you from achieving your goal. Most people choose Emsculpt because of the phenomenal esthetic results, but don’t overlook the many benefits of strong, powerful muscles. Muscles are in charge of bodily movement, helping with activities of daily living, and help to protect your body.
Who is Emsculpt For?
Emsculpt is for anyone looking to get stronger and look better faster. It can complement your workouts, allowing you to focus on cardio, balance, flexibility or other gym goals, or it can even take the place of major strength training movements. By freeing up your workout time, you can dedicate those precious minutes to other pressing matters—like treating yourself to some time in the sauna instead of dreading booty day ever again.
Almost anyone is a good candidate for Emsculpt because it’s a completely safe treatment. However, keep in mind that since your body really doesn’t know the difference between Emsculpt and a gym workout, you can expect to be sore afterward. After all, you just achieved 20,000 squats, curls, or crunches! DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is a perfectly natural result. You can minimize DOMS by “feeding” your muscles healthy protein immediately after Emsculpt and by sipping on BCAA-infused water before, during, and after treatment.
How Many Times Do I Need to Emsculpt?
Since a single treatment takes just 30 minutes, many clients choose to undergo more than one target area during their appointment. Each muscle group including the glutes, thighs, tummy, and arms are separate so there’s no risk of over-working the muscles. It’s feasible to plan a two-hour session and undergo all four treatment areas at once.
Just like regular workouts, you’ll see results unfold in the days and weeks following your treatment. Muscles get bigger, or toned, because they are carefully torn during a workout (or an Emsculpt session) and then repair themselves over time. This repair process creates a good kind of scar tissue that makes muscles bigger and stronger so they can withstand a similar session or workout in the future.
Most clients benefit from maintenance sessions every six months. That means just 30 minutes gives you all the strength training for one area for half a year. We encourage taking before and after photos so you can see just how dramatic the results are. Full results are revealed 4 – 6 weeks after treatment.
Emsculpt has quickly become a celebrity favorite, and with good reason. Celebrities are known for being strapped for time, and Emsculpt lets you squeeze in 20,000 muscle contractions in less time than it takes to watch your favorite drama on Netflix (of course, a lot of our clients do relax with their favorite shows during treatment!).
