Plenty of celebrities have tried Emsculpt, but few have shared that they’ve tried this beauty secret with the public. However, a growing list of Bravolebrities have become very open about trying this body sculpting treatment including, most recently, Porsha Williams from The Real Housewives of Atlanta who received an Emsculpt treatment on a recent episode.
On a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Williams was shown trying Emsculpt for the first time in preparation for a trip to Toronto’s Carnival. This treatment came recommended by her cast mate Tanya Sam, who described getting Emsculpt as like “doing 20,000 sit-ups in 30 minutes” and further saying that she thought it was good to get after having a child since it “knits all the muscles together.” On the show, Porsha said that getting Emsculpt was the “weirdest feeling,” but sang its praises after the treatment, saying that she felt great afterward.
Porsha isn’t the only Real Housewife who has shared that she’s gotten Emsculpt. Cary Deuber of The Real Housewives of Dallas recently shared a video of her getting Emsculpt on her Instagram. In her caption, Cary said she used Emsculpt for a “quick butt-lift” and that she had just done “the equivalent of 20,000 squats in 30 minutes.” Melissa Gorga of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has also gotten Emsculpt, which we know because her husband Joe shared on Instagram that the couple has gotten the treatment together.
Emsculpt is clearly becoming a favorite beauty routine addition among Bravolebrities. But as a provider of Emsculpt, we know that many people are still a bit unclear about what Emsculpt is and what it does. So to help let you in on all the important details you should know about this beauty secret, below we’re answering some frequently asked questions about Emsculpt.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a non-surgical, non-invasive body sculpting treatment that builds muscle and reduces fat through the application of electromagnetic energy. Emsculpt is actually the only non-invasive treatment that can tone the body by building the body’s own muscles. Emsculpt can be used on the abdomen or the buttocks to build, tone, and define the muscles in these areas.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
Emsculpt works through the application of strategically applied HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) energy. During an Emsculpt treatment, an Emsculpt applicator delivers HIFEM energy into the treatment area. This HIFEM energy causes the muscles to undergo supramaximal contractions, which are far more intense than the contractions you get during a workout (though they are not painful).
In one 30 minute Emsculpt session, the muscles contract 20,000 times. The body reacts to these supramaximal contracts by building muscle, creating a more toned, defined, and contoured look. Additionally, Emsculpt’s HIFEM energy breaks down fat in the treatment area, helping you lose stubborn fat and allowing your newly toned muscles to be seen more clearly.
How Much Downtime is Needed After Emsculpt?
After an Emsculpt treatment, absolutely no downtime is needed. You can immediately resume your normal daily activities.
How Many Emsculpt Sessions Do You Need to See Results?
Most patients need four 30 minute Emsculpt sessions to get optimal results from the treatment. These sessions should be spread out over a 2 week period, with 2 sessions per week. The full results of Emsculpt can be seen around 6 to 8 weeks after the last treatment, though many patients say that they start to see partial results after their first or second treatment.
Can You Get Emsculpt After Having a Baby?
You can get Emsculpt after having a baby and, in fact, many women specifically get Emsculpt post-pregnancy to restore more strength to their core. Some women also get Emsculpt post-pregnancy to address diastasis recti, a separation of the abdomen muscles.
While you can get Emsculpt after having a baby, you do need to wait a short period of time before doing so. Emsculpt can be safely done six weeks after giving birth.
