Build muscles and burn fat with EmSculpt®
Current non-invasive body shaping treatments in local market mainly address fat and skin. But what happens when one has less than an inch of pinchable fat, or want to improve the tone and shape of one’s stomach or buttock? EmSculpt® is an FDA-Approved treatment shown to actually build muscle and burn fat without one having to break a sweat. Typically, one third of one’s body is covered in muscles. EmSculpt® uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate the underlying muscle. The contractions are “supramaximal” and during a 30 minutes session, the abs/buttocks contract equivalent to a workout of 20,000 crunches/squats.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is HIFEM®?
A: EmSculpt® is based on HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology which induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. When exposed to these supramaximal contractions, the underlying muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme condition. In return, it responds with a deep remodelling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.
Q: What are the typical results following EmSculpt®?
A: On the average, clinical studies (with over 200 participants) showed these results after 4 sessions of EmSculpt®. Fat and muscle are measured with imaging- CT scans and MRI studies.
- 19% fat reduction
- 4cm loss in waist circumference
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (also known as diastasis recti)
- increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after consistent treatments)
- 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
- 96% patient satisfaction rates
Q: How many EmSculpt® treatments are needed?
A: Clinical studies with EmSculpt® for the abdomen and buttocks 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.
Q: Who is a good candidate for EmSculpt®?
A: Adults in good shape who desire more definition of their abs or lifting of the buttocks are ideal candidates for EmSculpt®. EmSculpt® is well-suited for those who workout but just can’t seem to get a six-pack or a perky buttock. Good candidates are those already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Q: What areas of the body can be treated with EmSculpt®?
A: EmSculpt® is FDA-cleared only for the abdomen and buttocks, however you can consult with our doctors at The Chelsea Clinic for fat metabolism on other areas.
Q: Does it really works?
A: Yes, the EmSculpt® has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent US based clinical studies. EmSculpt® reviews have shown positive patient satisfaction rate.
Q: How fast will one see results?
A: One should begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.
Q: Does EmSculpt® hurt?
A: EmSculpt® is painless and there is no downtime. To date, there have been no adverse reactions to the treatment. Most patients will feel muscle soreness the next day, similar to how it feels the day after a good gym workout.
