We all want a beautifully toned body, but for most of us, the hard work and amount of time that goes into one is the reason why we aren’t all walking around perfectly chiselled. To get that beach body we’ve got to start working for it so far in advance that last minute holidays aren’t an option with all the prep in place.
With EMSCULPT, you can be ready to jump on a flight in as little as 4 weeks! The EMSCULPT machine delivers 20,000 powerful muscle contractions to build muscle and burn fat in just 30 minutes – the same amount of time it takes some of us to travel to the gym before we’ve even worked out. And even when you’ve completed a workout, have you ever been able to do 20,000 sit ups in half an hour? Impossible, right? Well, it was until EMSCUPLT came to London to help you set a new PB without breaking a sweat. It’s crunch time ladies and gentlemen.
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is a non-invasive treatment taking over the UK that works to burn fat and build muscle in only 30 minutes – perfect for those with super hectic schedules (just think of all the things you could do with the time that you would’ve spent crunching those abs). The EMSCULPT machine found in exclusive London clinics uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to deliver supramaximal muscle contractions to the targeted area that can’t be achieved during a workout, no matter how much you break a sweat. With every session spent with the EMSCULPT machine rather than a personal trainer, you’ll increase the number of muscle fibres and decrease fat cells quicker than you ever could in the gym.
Who makes EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT was introduced to the world in 2018 as the first and only treatment of its kind. It’s the brainchild of BTL, a leading manufacturer in the aesthetics industry, who also gifted us with EMSCULPT NEO, EMTONE, EXILIS ULTRA 360, EMSELLA, X-WAVE, and VANQUISH ME. Behind every machine is 300 top-of-the range engineers on a mission to develop and create groundbreaking therapies that safely deliver results.
How does EMSCULPT work?
1. EMSCULPT for abs
These impressive results are made possible with the EMSCULPT machine as it causes 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions that are far beyond what we can achieve through any sort of exercise. To give you more of an idea of the strength of these contractions, only 25-50% of the muscles used when performing sit ups are activated every 3-5 seconds, whereas EMSCULPT has a much faster and higher muscle activation rate of 90-100%.
When the muscle tissue is exposed to these intense contractions, it responds by recreating its inner structure and undergoing cellular changes that build muscle and burn fat in the process. Muscle tissue strengthens, thickens and improves in volume, while fat cells get given the signal to break down their insides and convert them into free fatty acids. The overpowering amount of free fatty acids causes the fat cells to panic, malfunction, and eventually die.
2. EMSCULPT for arms
EMSCULPT for arms works exactly the same as it does on the abdomen, but if you have bingo wings or loose arm fat, we recommend undergoing Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing followed by a course of EMSCULPT on the arms for maximum results.
3. EMSCULPT Brazilian butt lift
The EMSCULPT machine works a little differently when used on the bottom as we want to keep hold of the fat cells responsible for its shape. Instead, it works to build the gluteal muscles, keeping the fat cells we want, and getting rid of the ones we don’t. EMSCULPT delivers the same results as a Brazilian Butt Lift right here in the UK, resembling the perky peach emoji that we’ve been dying to have an excuse to use.
Are there any other benefits to EMSCULPT?
1. Boosts metabolism
You’ve probably noticed that when you were younger you could eat as much as you want and never put any weight on (or at least envied a skinny person that could), now you just look at a bar of chocolate and end up with an extra inch on the hips. This is because our metabolism tends to slow down as we get older. EMSCUPLT boosts your metabolism and allows you to lose weight faster or just maintain your current body weight.
2. Aids muscle recovery
As EMSCULPT encourages the muscle tissue to rebuild itself, it can help to strengthen the muscle after injury and cuts down recovery time, so you can bounce back quicker.
Does EMSCULPT work?
You’re probably thinking that EMSCULPT seems too good to be true, but we can’t argue with results (or before and after pictures), and they say that it actually works. On average, a course of 4 EMSCULPT sessions achieves 19% less fat and 16% more muscle mass, which is typically the amount you’d get from 6 months of dedicated exercise and dieting. *Immediately goes to cancel gym membership*
How fast will I see results?
Because there’s absolutely no downtime with EMSCULPT, you can have a course of 4 treatments over 2 weeks spaced 2-3 days apart. Some patients begin to see results immediately, while most of them see results 2 weeks after their last treatment. However, the wow factor is normally seen at the 6-week mark.
The best way to keep track of your EMSCULPT results is to take before and after pictures, so you don’t miss the subtle everyday changes that can give you little boosts of confidence along the way.
How long do EMSCULPT results last?
The results of EMSCULPT aren’t permanent, and how long they last completely depends on you and your lifestyle. After you’ve reached optimal results at 6 weeks, if you continue to follow a healthy, relativity active lifestyle, results can last up to 18 months. But if you slip into old habits that don’t favour your new body, you’re looking at a few months tops.
If you’re unable to keep up with the exercise and diet needed to maintain EMSCULPT results, or just looking for a top up, we advise booking maintenance appointments. These can be scheduled in as much or as little as you like, provided you wait 2-3 days in between each session.
What does EMSCULPT feel like?
There’s nothing ordinary about having 20,000 involuntary muscle contractions stimulated by the EMSCULPT machine, so it won’t feel like anything you’ve experienced before, but most patients describe it as a pulling sensation similar to a sit-up. EMSCULPT imitates the feeling of a vigorous workout without actually doing any work at all (our kind of workout). You may experience slight muscle soreness after having EMSCULPT, but nothing more than you would normally have post-workout, meaning it won’t cause any disruption to your everyday routine.
To minimise muscle soreness, the EMSCUPLT machine has built in resting time in between contractions. When we exercise, our body uses oxygen to turn glucose into energy, but during intense exercise (like 20,000 sit ups in 30 minutes) there usually isn’t enough oxygen to use, meaning lactic acid is produced as our body can convert this into energy without using any oxygen. However, a build-up of lactic acid can cause aching, which is why EMSCULPT factors in a short pause to give it time to break down and prevent discomfort.
EMSCULPT vs EMTONE
EMSCULPT is often confused for EMTONE. And while they’re both game-changing machines, they target different bodily concerns. The main difference between EMSCULPT and EMTONE is that one targets body sculpting and reducing fat, while the other focuses on improving the appearance of cellulite.
The EMTONE machine combines radio frequency energy and pressure to smooth out the skin by promoting better circulation, evenly disrupting fat cells, and prevents fluid build-up.
EMTONE can be used alone, but it’s typically used as part of a fat reduction plan following treatments such as CoolSculpting or liposuction to erase leftover dimples, lumps and bumps. Like EMSCULPT, it’s recommended to undergo 4 treatments to achieve the best results.
How much does EMSCULPT in the UK cost?
They say money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy you abs, which is pretty much the same thing. So, what’s the price of skipping 6 months of blood, sweat, and tears in the gym? The cost of EMSCULPT depends on where in the UK the clinic is located. The cost of EMSCULPT in London starts from £450 and goes up to £750 per half an hour session. At Young LDN, one session of EMSCULPT costs £450, or £1800 for the recommended course of 4 sessions. What’s more, if you buy 2 courses, you get 1 for free! Who said you can’t buy abs in bulk?
Is EMSCULPT safe?
EMSCULPT is FDA approved to be used to treat the stomach, bottom, legs, and arms, making it a perfectly safe treatment for the majority of men and women looking to build muscle and burn fat. However, we would advise against EMSCULPT for anyone who has caused extreme damage to the muscle or soft tissue in the treatment area, a fitted pacemaker, is pregnant or breastfeeding.
