What is EMSCULPT?
HIFEM – High Intensity, Focused Electro Magnetic energy, meaning EMSCULPT produces magnetic energy that creates “supramaximal” muscle contraction. It uses a series of different patterns of muscle contractions during treatment to stimulate muscle work beyond what you can achieve in a high-intensity workout, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism.
A single EMSCULPT treatment is the equivalent of doing approximately 20,000 sit ups or squats. This muscle contraction leads to building of new muscle mass (increased tone and muscle definition) as well as enhanced fat metabolism through lipolysis, or destruction of fat cells. EMSCULPT burns fat and tones muscle in the body without pain, downtime or sweating it out at the gym.
What Results are Typical Following EMSCULPT?
BTL, the manufacturer of EMSCULPT, conducted 7 studies with over 200 patients on the abdomen and buttocks. The studies show how effective EMSCULPT is at burning fat and increasing muscle mass. They measured fat and muscle with imaging (CT scans and MRI studies), comparing photos before and after treatment, and measuring changes in waistline measurements.
On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:
19% reduction of fat
4 cm (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
16% increase in muscle mass
11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
96% patient satisfaction
How Many EMSCULPT Treatments are Needed?
Clinical studies with EMSCULPT treated patients for 30 minutes, twice a week for 2 weeks, a total of 4 treatments. Typically, one treatment every 3-6 months for maintenance is required to maintain results.
Who is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT?
Adults in good shape who desire more definition of their bodies are ideal candidates for EMSCULPT.
EMSCULPT is well-suited for those who workout but just can’t seem to get the results they desire. Good candidates are already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
What Areas of the Body Can be Treated with EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared for the abdomen and buttocks. However, other areas of the body may benefit from increased muscle tone and fat metabolism.
Areas well-suited for treatment may include:
Triceps & Biceps (arms)
