The EMsculpt program starts at $2,999 for a four-treatment package, per zone.
There is no recovery time needed after an EMsculpt treatment.
While all EMsculpt treatment plans vary by patient, each treatment takes an average of 30 minutes.
EMsculpt is a painless, non-invasive procedure that builds muscle and kills fat through high-intensity electromagnetic energy, improving body contouring and shape, through muscle-sculpting and building. By using high-intensity electromagnetic energy and targeting specific muscles, 20,000 supramaximal contractions can be induced in just 30 mins (like 20 years of sit-ups). After a series of twice-weekly treatments, the size of the muscle fibres (hypertrophy) and absolute number (hyperplasia) is increased significantly, improving your contour and form.
Good candidates for the EMsculpt treatment are those with an unwanted localized collection of abdominal fat, thigh fat, or a flat, sagging buttock. Expectations should be realistic, as the non-invasive, painless body shaping improvements are notable but moderate. Patients cannot have a cardiac or bladder pacemaker and, most importantly, should not have more than 2-3 cm of fat, or else the increased muscle tone/hypertrophy will not be visible.
Increase Muscle Mass
Patients see an average 16%-20% increase in muscle mass.
As the procedure is non-invasive – candidates can resume their regular activities, including high impact sports, immediately.
Safe and Effective
Non-invasive body sculpting is a reliable method that has been used for years, with very rare, if any, side effects.
Ideal for Both Men and Women
Both men and women respond well to EMsculpt procedures.
The EMsculpt delivers High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic radiation (electrical current) that is delivered from the applicator paddle to the muscle and fat and is cleared for use by the FDA and Health Canada. This energy is non-ionizing, does not cause cancer in cells, does not give off radiation, does not affect sensory nerves, blood vessels or any other localized tissue except the targeted muscle and fat. There is no effect on the underlying tissues below the muscle.
The biggest risk is a patient’s unrealistic expectations.
Dr. Mulholland and his Toronto SpaMedica team have assembled the most comprehensive array of non-surgical fat reduction technologies and skin tightening devices. Dr. Mulholland has the most experience in Canada in non-invasive fat reduction and offers the most diverse fat and skin tightening technologies to ensure you get the best possible results for your fat reduction, skin tightening and contouring. The EMsculpt builds up the underlying muscle (after fat destruction and skin tightening technology) and SpaMedica is also a provider of the InMode Evolve Tone, which can build AND tone muscle, especially good for many women that do not necessarily want to look overly muscular.
EMsculpt and Evolve Tone are the 2 most popular physician office-based EMS systems and are much more powerful than the dozens of home EMS muscle retraining devices.
Sculpts the body by building muscle mass. This treatment can stimulate muscle mass increase and very moderate fat reduction.
Sculpt the body by building and toning the muscle. Also has applicators that Tighten skin (Evolve TITE and kills a substantial amount of fat – Evolve TRIM)
Eliminates fat through the use of cooling technology (Coolsculpting), laser heat (Sculpsure) Microwave heat (Vanquish), or ultrasonic cellular cavitation (Ultrashape). Just one single treatment can reduce fat by up to 25%.
While both of these treatments reduce fat, EMsculpt and Evolve Tone also build muscle.
EMsculpt and Evolve Tone are physician and office-based treatments that build and tone muscle.
An applicator paddle is placed over an area of the body that has an undesirable localized excess collection of fat over the underlying muscle. Once turned on, the applicator from the EMsculpt device releases high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy that leads to over 20,000 supra-maximal muscle contractions. These supra-maximal contractions delivered during each 30-minute treatment sessions exceed the kind of muscle stimulation that can never be achieved through exercise, bodybuilding or muscle action.
As the EMsculpt is non-invasive, it requires no pre-treatment preparation.
After an EMsculpt treatment, patients can immediately resume normal activities, including high impact exercise. Following the EMsculpt sessions, patients may experience a moderate degree of muscle fatigue, stiffness and soreness for 24-72 hours, similar to a high impact workout.
Immediately after the first session: return to regular activity
Week 2: Complete the 4-6 treatments
Week 6: Maximum results
The EMsculpt program is quite comfortable. EMsculpt patients describe a “pulling or tugging” sensation, rather than any real pain. The intensity of energy output to deliver the supramaximal contractions can be adjusted to patient tolerance.
The increase in the number and size of muscle will naturally decrease over time if you do not exercise or maintain the area in which EMsculpt was performed. Two maintenance treatments are done over one week; every 6 months are recommended to keep the enhanced muscle mass.
The recommended maintenance treatment protocol at SpaMedica Toronto’s clinic is 2 treatments once every 12-24 weeks. The fat that is destroyed during the EMsculpt program will stay away as long as there is no significant weight gain. Skin tightening treatments can be combined as well if there is skin laxity.
Yes, EMsculpt can be performed after liposuction to improve and enhance the results of your lipo. The EMsculpt will complement the results of your surgery, as it will build muscle which, after liposuction, will show the increased size and tone. The EMsculpt treatments may also decrease small areas of localized fat that may persist after liposuction.
