Answer Snippet
Would Emsculpt help to tighten sagging skin on my stomach?
Some options...
Dec 3, 2020
EmSculpt works on the muscles so with tighter/bigger muscles the skin redrapes differently. For skin tightening I like Lumenis NuEra Tight which is a radiofrequency device that stimulates all three aspects of the dermal components—collagen, elastin, and extracellular matrix polysaccharides like hyaluronic acid. It can be very effective in increasing the density of the dermis, which is the problem we are trying to combat. It improves the overall smoothness of the skin structure, thus...
Any thoughts on timing/frequency and its effect on results?
It depends...
Dec 3, 2020
It depends on desired results but there is such a thing as too much! In our practice we recommend two treatments a week for two consecutive weeks. Depending on the patient, they may need more treatments to achieve desired results. Once results are achieved patients can come back once a month for maintenance.
Why can you not breastfeed when you get when Emsculpt procedure?
EmSculpt has not been studied for patients who are breastfeeding.
Dec 3, 2020
EmSculpt has not been studied for patients who are breastfeeding. The risk is for people who have just given birth as the body needs time to heal. EmSculpt does help for patients who have Diastasis Recti as a result of their pregnancy.
does Emsculpt work on tightening up bra roll / back fat?
Not quite!
Dec 3, 2020
EmSculpt works on muscles and can strengthen the back to eliminate the appearance of bra bulge. However to target fat, we recommend CoolSculpting, injectable deoxycholic acid, or lipo.
Can Emsculpt be used for thighs - inner and back thigh as well? Along with the buttocks?
EmSculpt is approved for the abdomen, buttocks, arms, calves and thighs
Dec 3, 2020
EmSculpt is approved for the abdomen, buttocks, arms, calves and thighs. The most common area patients at Shafer Clinic start with are the abdomen and buttocks then they move on to thighs and arms.
