Emsculpt treatment for Muscle Toning and Fat Burning
BTL Emsculpt is a breakthrough device, offering non-invasive body contouring which eliminates fat and builds muscle. Emsculpt has been making massive waves in the States and globally over the last few months and is now available in South Africa. In a 30 minute session, Emsculpt treatment induces a whopping 20,000 muscle contractions in the area of treatment, the equivalent of doing the same number of crunches or squats. Emsculpt treatment is performed in our practice by a trained therapist. Current non-invasive body shaping therapies address fat and skin. But what happens when one has less than an inch of pinchable fat or wants to improve the tone and shape of one’s stomach or buttocks? After all, more than a third of one’s body is composed of muscles.
What is Emsculpt?
EMSCULPT treatment is the ONLY procedure to help both women and men build muscle and burn fat. In addition, the BTL EMSCULPT creates the world’s FIRST non-invasive buttock lifting device. Using the new high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM), the Emsculpt device delivers electromagnetic pulses to the muscles and creates supramaximal muscle contractions, activating more muscle fibers than any exercise, and also stimulates the body to create new muscle fibers which is not possible to achieve through normal exercise.
Nearly 20,000 muscle contractions…
…are produced in one 30-minute session. Contracting repeatedly without rest stresses the muscles, triggers rapid changes at the cellular level that make the muscles grow bigger and stronger. The high supply of energy produced by the many muscle contractions, neighbouring fat cells break down and release fatty acids. Fat cells are damaged to the point where they die, and the body naturally eliminates them. The result of the combined action of muscle tightening and fat-cell destruction, is stronger, more defined muscles.
HIFEM induces ‘supramaximal’ contractions that put your muscles into full use. During a typical workout, your muscles can only reach approximately 40% of their maximum capacity, whereas EMSCULPT allows them to reach 100% capacity. Strengthening your core muscles can in turn strengthen the lower back and pelvic muscles. One 30 minute session is equivalent to nearly 20,000 perfect sit-ups.
EMSCULPT pulses encourage your body to build muscle in areas that typically won’t respond to regular exercise such as the biceps and triceps. When your arm is exposed to the targeted HIFEM pulses, it will react through small contractions that ripple throughout your arm. EMSCULPT actually lets you grow your own muscle and gives a natural muscle tone. The device is now FDA approved for building muscle in the arms as well as the buttocks and abs.
Tone Butt & Legs
Whenever we work out, we are damaging our muscles and wearing them down. As our body recovers, it reverses that damage, rebuilding and repairing our muscle tissues. When it does, it rebuilds them stronger and firmer than before in an effort to protect them from further damage. The supramaximal contractions provided by EMSCULPT essentially provide a supercharged version of this process, which rebuilds he inner structure of the targeted muscles.
