Emsculpt tones and strengthens abdominal and gluteal muscles effortlessly and pain-free by using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, similar to a TENS unit on steroids. It induces supramaximal contractions, which cannot be obtained through typical exercise. These contractions force the muscle tissues to adapt to such extreme conditions causing a deep remodeling of the inner structure; a growth of myofibrils (muscle hypertrophy) and creation of new protein strands and muscle fibers (muscle hyperplasia). This results in increased muscle density and volume. Fat is secondarily burned and destroyed as a beneficial side effect.
A 30-minute treatment is equivalent to 20,000 crunches or squats. You may experience some muscle soreness for 2-4 days. A typical treatment is for 30 minutes with a recommended 4 sessions scheduled over 2 weeks. Results are usually seen within 2-4 weeks and you can expect to have continued improvement over a six month period.
There were 7 different clinical studies conducted in the United States using the Emsculpt to confirm fat loss and muscle tightening. Before and after CT scans, MRIs, and Ultrasounds were taken in the study groups which all collaborated the results. 1-month results showed that muscle mass increased consistently by 16%, the average abdominal fat loss was 19%, and waist circumference decreased by 4.4 cm (1.7 in). No risks were identified in these studies. The most recent data showed 6-month results were even better – 18% increase in muscle mass and 23% fat reduction.
