02 Apr Your Options When Diet and Exercise Aren’t Enough
A healthy diet and regular exercise can go a long way in helping you achieve the body you want—but there are limitations. That’s why RefinedMD offers a wide variety of body contouring and sculpting procedures including Emsculpt NEO, CoolSculpting, the traditional Emsculpt, Vanquish ME, and Exilis. Each of these treatments are non-invasive and designed to help you address trouble areas, stubborn spots, and fully customize your body.
With body sculpting procedures, it’s important to keep in mind that these aren’t weight loss procedures even though many of them might result in losing one or two pounds after completing all sessions. These options are designed for those at or near their goal weight, but who want some leverage getting to the next level or breaking through a plateau. These treatments also aren’t an alternative to a good diet and exercise, but rather a complement to them. However, the results can be incredible because when you’re so close to where you already want to be, some “fine tuning” can make a big difference!
The Emsculpt Family
Emsculpt was the first technology to focus mostly on muscle. The days are long gone when weight reduction was the only thing anyone cared about. Today, it’s equal parts fat reduction and building muscles mass and that’s where Emsculpt makes all the difference. The original Emsculpt technology forces targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. It can be used on all of the most-desired areas like the abs, glutes, thighs, and even upper arms.
Our muscles get bigger (“toned”) by hypertrophy, and this occurs when muscles contract in a specific way. They usually contract because we put stress on them that makes them do so—like when lifting a dumbbell. However, we can also force them to contract with Emsculpt technology. It’s the exact same thing as if you performed 20,000 lunges, bicep curls, or other strength training move all in one go!
But what if you want both fat reduction and more muscle mass in particular areas? Introducing Emsculpt NEO. It has all of the muscle-building perks of the original Emsculpt, but with the added capability of fat reduction. A lot of areas, such as the abs or upper arms, are going to require a reduction in fat in order to show off those muscles you’re working out. Emsculpt NEO does both for those who want a double whammy in specific areas.
CoolSculpting and More
CoolSculpting is the most well-known of body contouring treatments, and the technology behind it was first invented in the 1970s. It freezes away unwanted fat and can be used virtually anywhere on the body. Fat “dies” when exposed to key low temperatures, and that’s exactly what CoolSculpting does. These fat cells are then absorbed and expelled by the body in the weeks following the treatment, so results aren’t immediate but you will see them within six months of your final session.
Vanquish ME works with radiofrequency technology to disrupt fatty cells by heating up targeted tissue. This causes fat cell shrinkage and destruction. Vanquish ME is known in the body contouring industry for being able to treat the widest areas in one session, and can be used on the stomach as well as the thighs. Like CoolSculpting, results are not immediate but you will get to watch them reveal themselves in the weeks post-treatment.
Sculpt and Tighten
What if it’s not just fat reduction you need, but also skin tightening? Exilis technology might be for you! Like Vanquish ME, it also uses radiofrequency technology, but in a way that minimizes fat while tightening the skin. It goes into various depths, from the surface for tightening to deeper for fat elimination. Exilis can be used on the face or body.
With so many options available, it’s easy to be overwhelmed—we’re here to help! Multiple sessions are usually required to get optimal results for all body contouring procedures, and sometimes mixing and matching these treatments are what will get you the results you deserve.
