The mind- (and fat) blowing technology behind EMsculpt body contouring
Unsurprisingly, the demand for non-invasive fat reduction procedures has continued to rise in recent years. Understandably, if people can avoid surgery, they generally will. While there exists a variety of incredibly effective body contouring treatments out there, aesthetic experts are quick to point out that none of these technologies build muscle, which is an integral component of a balanced body structure. While fat comprises 20-30% of the body, muscle accounts for 30-40%. EMsculpt is the first and only non-invasive treatment that can destroy fat cells and build muscle at the same time.
New HIFEM technology
Other non-invasive fat reduction treatments employ focused temperature technologies to remove unwanted fat, crystallizing or melting away your fat cells. EMsculpt, on the other hand, uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology that tones the abdomen, lifts and firms buttocks, and improves diastasis recti (the separation of abdominal muscles sometimes caused by pregnancy). HIFEM technology induces supramaximal muscle contractions that can’t be achieved with regular exercise. A single 30-minute session can be compared to doing 20,000 voluntary crunches, while other body contouring treatments can take an hour or more per session. The result? The simultaneous breakdown of fat cells and muscle growth—something no other body sculpting procedure can do.
Backed by science, not hearsay
While some may wonder if EMsculpt is too good to be true, it’s FDA-approved as well as backed by at least seven independent multi-centre studies using reputable scientific methods of study (MRI, CT, ultrasonography, circumferential waist measurements, and histology). The safety, efficacy, and success of EMsculpt have a proven track record that shows an approximate 16% increase in treated muscle size, a 19% decrease of localized fat, a 4 cm reduction in abdominal circumference, and 96% patient satisfaction! Most patients receive 6 treatments over a 3-month period. Many feel tightening effects after their first treatment and notice a more sculpted abdomen, as well as lifted and firmed buttocks 2-4 weeks post procedure. While optimal outcomes are typically achieved by the 3-month mark, improvements may still be seen for up to 6 months. It’s no wonder countless aesthetic experts believe EMsculpt is taking body contouring to a whole new level.
