Now there is a treatment that can build muscle! Skeptical? When we first heard about this new category of treatment we were skeptical too! Once we looked at the clinical evidence we were intrigued. When we actually experienced an EMSCULPT treatment we were beyond impressed...we were blown away! EMSCULPT works! This article will explain how. >>
First, let’s consider what causes muscles to become stronger, more toned, or bigger through normal daily exertion or through regular and frequent visits to a gym:
Men and women with lean, muscular physiques have worked hard and invested a lot of time and effort to look that way. Credit where credit is due, but not everybody has that much time or determination.
Building muscle takes a lot of work! Why not let EMSCULPTdo the work for you.
EMSCULPT uses High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to create supramaximal muscle contractions. Unlike voluntary contractions that can only be sustained briefly, during an EMSCULPT treatment the muscles are contracted to supramaximal levels which are sustained intensely for varying durations of several seconds each.
Applicators are placed on the area to be treated, either directly on the skin or over your clothing. Your technician will set the intensity at about 20% for the first few contractions to allow you to adapt to the sensation. It is not painful but can be startling to the point of discomfort at first because you have never felt anything close to this before. The intensity of contractions is far beyond what your body could ever achieve on its own.
We were blown away, and you will be too!
The intensity of the HIFEM contractions will gradually be increased to 100% as you adapt.By the end of the treatment the targeted muscle will feel fatigued, but oddly awakened! During a 20-30 minute treatment, repetitions of supramaximal contractions are applied several times. Comparing these rounds to a workout at the gym, think of each round as a “set.” Between each set, the machine delivers numerous intervals of mechanical massage. This breaks down lactic acid to reduce muscle soreness after this intense mechanically-induced workout.
An EMSCULPT treatment amounts to the equivalent of doing 20,000 reps! The result is muscle hypertrophy and hyperplasia. In other words, the muscle grows and new strands of muscle fibers are created. Now, that is amazing!
During the EMSCULPT treatment your body sends signals that an extreme amount of energy is going to be needed to fuel the supramaximal contractions. This brings about a dramatic release of free fatty acids (FFA’s) that exceeds normal levels. As the FFA’s accumulate in surrounding adipocytes, catabolic and supramaximal lipolysis leads to cellular disfunction and results in apoptosis of the fat cells.
In laymen’s terms, what this means is that EMSCULPT destroys the fat cells, permanently! The fat cells then clear gradually from the body through it’s natural processes, just as they do after CoolSculpting or WarmSculpting.
An EMSCULPT treatment consists of four sessions performed over a period of 2-3 weeks. Parameters can be set to cause fat loss in areas where it is desired, or not effect fat in other areas. EMSCULPT is approved by Health Canada for:
Increased muscle density and volume, along with a reduction of fat, leads to better definition and muscle tone! Based on numerous independently audited clinical studies using CT scans, MRI, Ultrasound and blood tests, EMSCULPT results prove it is effective with zero non-responders. It is also completely safe, with no adverse reactions. Significant growth of muscle and reduction of fat occurs after an EMSCULPT treatment.
You may start feeling and seeing results within just a few days but it takes six weeks for the full muscular benefits to happen and twelve weeks to see the full fat loss results. Once the fat cells are gone they will be gone permanently! The muscle gains will be long lasting, just as they would be if the gains had resulted from weight-training.
Studies have shown that EMSCULPT induces the following results:
