This has to be tried to be believed –
20000 muscle contractions in a 30 minute session
EMSculpt® is a revolutionary treatment to lift and tone your buttocks, stomach, legs and arms. It is the first clinically proven, FDA approved, non-invasive, body sculpting treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle.
How does it work?
EMSculpt® uses, the current trending buzzword in the world of body treatments, and included in many of the new machines that have become available
The ground-breaking EMSculpt® uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce powerful muscle contractions in the treatment area. These supramaximal muscle contractions are not possible to achieve during exercise (where even a seasoned athlete can only get to around 55% muscle contraction). They induce fat metabolism as well as permanently destroying fat cells (“apoptosis”).
What areas can be treated?
What can I expect during a treatment?
You don’t need to take your clothes off for the treatment, but most people will choose to wear something comfortable. Your practitioner will place the EMSculpt® paddles on the area to be treated and you’ll feel your muscles contracting straight away. You can dial up the power according to how you feel. In spite of the potency of the supramaximal contractions, the treatment is surprisingly well tolerated and leaves you feeling like you’ve had an intense workout, along with the kind of endorphin rush you might feel after exercise. EMSculpt® also has a treatment to reduces lactic acid build-up in muscles leaving you with minimal after-effects.

What results can I expect?
You can expect improvement in firmness and muscle strength and tone along with increased muscle definition.
Results will vary from person to person.
EMSculpt® has undergone numerous clinical trials. In 7 independent clinical trials, results in MRI, CT, Ultrasound and histology showed consistent results in both fat reduction and muscle gain.
16% increase in muscle mass
19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
96% patient satisfaction
4.4 cm reduction in waist circumference
What does a course of treatments involve?
A treatment session is between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. It is usually recommended to do at least 4 treatments over a 2 week period, and they can be done 2 to 3 days apart, but some people will choose to do more treatments.
How long does it take to see results?
You will feel results immediately after your first treatment, and measurements will be taken after 4 treatments. You will continue to see improvement for several weeks to months following your course of treatments, with the best results see 3 months to 6 months later. Some people will opt to do maintenance treatments after this time.
How does the buttock lift work?
Your gluteal muscles contract and lift the buttocks. Multiple studies have shown that the fat in this area is less metabolically active than fat in the abdomen, so the apoptosis seen in other areas is not seen with the buttock treatments.
Are there any side-effects?
Magnetic technology has been used for decades and is well established in terms of safety. The technology is only active in the muscles and does not affect surrounding tissues and organs.
