Get toned & summer ready with EMsculpt!

Many say it sounds too good to be true, and they have a point: the famed EMsculpt body sculpting procedure is FDA-approved for the improvement of abdominal tone, the strengthening of the abdominal muscles, the development of a firmer abdomen, as well as the strengthening, toning, and firming of the buttocks. And there’s no downtime. So what gives? It’s natural to want to know more, wouldn’t you say?


What is EMsculpt anyway?


EMsculpt is a painless, noninvasive body contouring procedure that sets itself apart due to its ability to kill fat and build muscle with high-intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM), for an overall improvement in body contours. The game-changing device works by placing an applicator paddle over an area of the body with unwanted overlaying localized fat. The paddle then releases HIFEM, triggering over 20,000 supra-maximal muscle contractions during each 30-minute treatment session—above and beyond the kind of muscle stimulus that can be achieved through voluntary exercise! The best focus areas for treatment include the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, with many women opting for an EMsculpt Butt lift, thanks to the EMsculpt’s ability to shape, firm, and elevate with fat burning as well.


Treatment protocol


Each EMsculpt treatment session is 30-minutes long, and the recommended treatment protocol requires 4 treatments over the course of 2 weeks. Your final shaping and contouring results are visible after the first few sessions and are maximal at 6 weeks post-treatment!


Results: what to expect


There are numerous studies by reputable dermatologists and plastic surgeons using MRI, CT, ultrasonography, circumferential waist measurements, and fat histology which show an approximate 16% increase in the treated muscle size and a 19% reduction of localized fat, in combination with a 4 cm circumferential reduction in abdominal hip circumference. In terms of maintenance, the recommended protocol at SpaMedica in Toronto is 2 treatments every 6-12 weeks. The fat that is destroyed during your EMsculpt program will stay away as long as you can more or less maintain your weight. Your muscle cells, however, will naturally decrease over time if exercise, or your EMsculpt maintenance treatments, are not sustained.


Aftercare: no downtime


EMsculpt patients describe a pulling or tugging sensation during the procedure, as well as contractions, but do not describe pain. The intensity of EMsclupt’s supramaximal contractions can be adjusted to your personal tolerance level. After an EMsculpt treatment, patients can immediately return to regular activities—including mild, moderate or even strenuous exercise, and gym workouts too. Following an EMsculpt treatment session, you may experience a moderate degree of muscle fatigue, stiffness, and/or soreness for 1-3 days, much like you might after a regular workout. You can be out in the sun, go swimming, and engage in normal sexual activity immediately following an EMsculpt treatment without any problem whatsoever.
