EMSculpt Q & A

EMSculpt utilizes HIFEM, which stands for “high intensity focused electromagnetic technology”, to cause supramaximal muscle contractions equivalent to 20,000 abdominal crunches or squats in one 30-minute session. This induces muscle building and fat reduction simultaneously. Initial studies were performed at seven different medical practices across the U.S. and confirmed by MRI, CT, ultrasound tests and reviewing histology of the tissue under the microscope.

 

 

 

THE WORLD’S ONLY PROCEDURE TO SIMULTANEOUSLY BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT

Despite our best efforts, we can’t always contour our bodies the way we would like with diet and exercise alone. This is especially true when it comes to the stomach area, which is prone to fat buildup and sagging with age. Fortunately, a treatment like EMSCULPT® can help you contour your body the way you want with no downtime or discomfort. We are proud to offer EMSCULPT® among our services at Artius Integrative Medicine of Great Falls, VA. Contact us today to learn more about this innovative treatment and find out if it is right for you.

 

WHAT IS EMSCULPT®?

The EMSCULPT® is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and burn fat.

EMSCULPT® is a revolutionary new procedure that lifts and tones–with no surgery. In fact, the process is completely non-invasive. By building muscle and reducing fat at the same time, patients who choose this treatment can enjoy a noticeably more defined abdomen, butt, thighs, arms, or calfs.

HOW DOES EMSCULPT® WORK?

While most other body contouring treatments simply targeting unwanted fat, EMSCULPT® works uniquely by targeting both fat and muscle. The process works by directing highly focused electromagnetic energy to the area, forcing the muscles to contract in a way that is not possible through exercise. In response to these contractions, the muscle reconstructs itself, and fat in the area begins to melt away more easily.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH TREATMENT?

Your treatment plan will begin with a consultation with our provider or clinician, during which you will get to discuss your aesthetic goals. After determining that EMSCULPT® is the right course of action for you, we will develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.

The standard treatment protocol is a series of four treatments, each spaced 2 -3 days apart. Following your series of treatments, you should enjoy noticeable results after a couple weeks. The treatment will feel like you are doing an awesome workout during intervals that are spaced out between a “tapping phase” in which your lactic acid build up is removed so you feel great and fully functional at the end of a session. You can go back to work immediately or even go to the gym for a workout (just don’t work on the area of the body that just did the EMSculpt as that area already had a tremendous workout already and deserves a break).

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR EMSCULPT®?

Because EMSCULPT® is a safe and non-invasive treatment, just about everyone makes a good candidate (*with a list of medical exceptions, such as pregnancy, pacemaker, hip or knee implants, metal implancts, pain pump, etc.). This is an especially good option if you need help contouring areas such as the abdomen but do want to undergo an invasive procedure. When you come in for your consultation, we will help you find out if EMSCULPT® is right for you.

WHY IS EMSCULPT THE BREAKTHROUGH IN NON-INVASIVE BODY SHAPING?

EMSCULPT is the world’s only FDA Cleared non-invasive body shaping procedure to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat. In addition, the EMSCULPT creates a world´s first non-invasive butt lift procedure.
