Does Emsculpt Really Work? No, But CoolSculpting Does
CoolSculpting and Emsculpt are very similar in nature, however one is more effective than the other. While both target stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to shake with diet and exercise alone, CoolSculpting targets fat cells specifically while Emsculpt targets fat and muscle. But, does Emsculpt really work? No, not as well as CoolSculpting.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that specifically targets fat cells by freezing them away. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the target area, and after about five to ten minutes, the skin becomes numb to the cold. Meanwhile, the fat cells are being crystallized and will eventually be processed by the body and eliminated. Once destroyed, this fat can never return, so CoolSculpting results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight.
What Is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a process that uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to reach a level of involuntary muscle contractions that even the most intense physical activity can not achieve. This is done by placing a device around the area of treatment, typically the abdominal area, and then turning the machine on and increasing intensity gradually. The contractions boost the metabolism, causing fat loss as a common side effect – though in this case, that’s a good side effect to have.
Does Emsculpt Really Work? No, But Why Doesn’t It Provide CoolSculpting’s Sensational Results?
Simply put, the results just don’t last without other changes in your lifestyle. Emsculpt can be effective for some, but it requires you to add a strict diet and exercise regiment. Emsculpt also must be done in several sessions, instead of only one, which take place over two weeks, which can be inconvenient for some. For optimal results, CoolSculpting can take several treatments as well, though some achieve their desired aesthetic in as little as one session.
