Is the first and only FDA-approved device that builds muscle and burn fat. All indications are exclusive to Aesthetic Medicine.
When speaking about body contouring, most treatments focus on fat loss, however, muscles account for 35 to 40% of the entire body, and remains at the expense of maintaining an exhaustive training in order to define most of the areas in our body. Thanks to EMSCULPT we can build the muscle of each treatment area, providing an effectively definied body, as well as achieving firm and toned musculature.
EMSCULPT is based upon the emission of a high intensity focused electromagnetic field in the treatment area, penetrating the body and stimulating muscle contraction without affecting other areas. These contractions are well above in intensity, in volume of fibers recruited and repetition, of what we could voluntarily do (known as supra maximal contraction). In just four 30-minute sessions, increased muscle and localized fat loss can be accomplished, allowing us to define and sculpt the area.
EMSCULPT indications cover several body areas. The most prominent are the abdomen and buttocks. There is a growing evidence that the abdominal treatment reduces the muscles separation in the abdominal rectus, known as diastasi recti. This separation is common within women after childbirth, and it is not spontaneously reversed . Due to this reason, it is also an ideal treatment for women who, after childbirth, want to regain their body contour.
EMSCULPT has been denominated as the 20,000 crunches machine since, with each 30-minute session, this is the above maximum number of contractions that it produces.
When we talk about buttocks treatment, we can say that EMSCULPT is the only non-invasive treatment with specific indications for buttock lift. The buttock muscles are very large and are very difficult to effectively work them in order to develop any progress.
EMSCULPT offers other applicatons as arm and leg toning. The new applicators for biceps and triceps allow us to quickly sculpt the muscles not only in the arms but also on legs with 4 sessions in only twenty minutes per session.
EMSCULPT results will be more visible after a 3 month period. It is recommended to have maintenance sessions to provide a yearly toned body countour.
