Body Contouring by BTL Aesthetics
“Where Athletic meets Aesthetic”
EMSCULPT is the only non-invasive procedure used to build muscle while contouring the body. Using High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, muscle is exposed to 20,000 supramaximal contractions. When exposed to strong contractions, the muscle tissue responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure. This targeted treatment results in muscle building and sculpting not achievable through voluntary contractions. During normal voluntary muscle contractions the muscle fibers relax between nervous stimulus. EMSCULPT generates impulses at such rapid frequency it doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Supramaximal contractions cause an enhanced adrenaline release, which triggers an intensive lipolysis response in fat cells. When exposed to the supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt, responding with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning. On average, treatments increase muscle by 16% and reduce subcutaneous fat by 19%.
Many popular body-contouring procedures target unwanted fat with cold temperatures and light-based energy, but do not have any effect on the weak muscles’ underneath fat. This deficit limits the true sculpting abilities of current technologies, as muscle comprises 35% of the body and is an essential component of achieving a lean and defined physique.
BTL Aesthetics recognized the importance of muscle in body contouring and developed EMSCULPT, the first and only non-invasive device that builds muscle and reduce fat cells. While this FDA-cleared technology is new, this treatment has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent U.S.-based clinical studies, all of which show exciting results! One study shows evidence the protocol not only reduces fat, but also increases muscle mass and lessens muscle diastasis. Another study shows reduction in average waist circumference, while a third study promising outcomes when used for non-invasive butt augmentation.
During the EMSCULPT treatment, the panels are attached to the area of focus and left in place for 30 minutes as they target fat and build muscle. Stimulating such powerful muscle activity causes thickening, strengthening and firming of muscles in addition to releasing free-fatty acids which overwhelm and eliminate fat cells. Throughout your treatment, you can simply lie back and relax while EMSCULPT works its magic with ZERO downtime!
For optimal fat destruction and toning, a series of 2 EMSCULPT treatments (spaced 2-3 days apart) per week for 2-3 weeks is recommended. Your provider will help you design a successful treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.
Some light soreness in the targeted area is considered normal, although you will not experience any noticeable or uncomfortable side effects. You can resume normal activities right away. However, It is advised that you avoid intense exercise for 24 hours after each session.
You begin to feel results immediately after the first treatment with positive results reported 2 to 4 weeks after the last session. Improvements can be noted several weeks after the last treatment and will continue to improve for up to 3 months following the conclusion of treatments.
Muscle mass gained by EMSCULPT treatments are not permanent and maintenance treatments will be recommended on a case by case basis. Your treatment plan may be monthly sessions, bi-monthly sessions or a single treatment every 3-4 months to maintain your results.
This treatment is a complete game changer for the industry, as it is a first of its kind! What most people don’t realize is 35% of the body is muscle, 25% is fat and 16% is skin. The current body shaping techniques fail to address muscles, which greatly affects our body’s contour. BTL EMSCULPT finally goes beyond just waistline reduction and elimination of fat cells to provide a dual treatment to address fat and muscle tone.
While all body types can benefit from EMSCULPT, high BMI patients are not ideal candidates. Despite significant strengthening of their muscles due to treatment, this improvement may stay hidden beneath the patients’ fat deposits. This treatment is ideal for men and women who live a healthy and active lifestyle but are hoping to strengthen and define hard to target areas.
