Are you interested in pursuing a non-invasive body contouring treatment but not sure where to start? The medical aesthetic industry is advancing so rapidly, it’s hard to keep up with all the new technologies! This is where we come in. Here at Skin Care Institute, we consider it our mission and privilege to help you navigate treatments and select the best ones to meet your exact needs and goals.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to better understanding CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt®, and how these treatments can help you reach your body contouring goals this fall.
1. What’s your main concern?
Take a look at your body. What’s the main obstacle holding you back from feeling confident? For many women, for example, it’s the belly, which never seemed to “bounce back” after childbirth. The stomach, or abdominal area, is a common “problem spot” for everyone. This area of the body loves holding onto excess stores of fat, and it’s slow to respond to diet and exercise.
2. Now, study your “problem spot.”
Do you have a bulge of fat like a stomach pooch, love handles or a double chin? Can you pinch an inch or more of fat? If your answer is “yes,” you may be a perfect candidate for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting was especially designed to reduce these malleable, “pinch-an-inch” stores of fat. This type of fat is formally known as subcutaneous fat. It’s pinchable and annoying but totally harmless.
Conversely, if your “problem spot” isn’t pinchable, you may have a different type of fat that’s located close to your organs in your abdomen. This type of fat, called visceral fat, can negatively affect your overall health. We recommend consulting with your primary care physician to start a special diet or nutrition plan designed to reduce visceral fat.
3. Ask yourself: Could muscle tone be a factor?
Many patients are surprised to learn that lack of muscle tone, not excess fat, is the culprit. When it comes to strengthening muscles, Emsculpt non-invasive muscle toning is the treatment we rely on to deliver dramatic results efficiently and safely. Emsculpt delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) energy to your muscles, triggering thousands of muscle contractions during each 30-minute session. You simply lay back while Emsculpt goes to work on your “problem zone.” Emsculpt helps to tone and lift the buttocks, which is why it’s often referred to in the media as the non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. Emsculpt also helps flatten and tone the abdomen and tone the thighs and arms.
4. Consider combining and conquering your trouble zones.
Many patients benefit from undergoing both CoolSculpting and Emsculpt. If a fat bulge needs reducing, we’ll first perform a series of CoolSculpting treatments to get your target area where you want it to be. Once your fat is reduced, you’re in the perfect place to benefit from muscle toning and more definition with Emsculpt.
