Imagine doing 20 000 sit-ups in a 30minute session toning the muscle and burning fat…
WHAT IS Emsculpt Treatment?
Emsculpt is noninvasive body contouring machine, in a class of its own. Advances in technology means that patients now have a range of options available when it comes to:
- body sculpting
- cellulite reduction
- muscle toning
- skin tightening and
- fat reduction or fat elimination
1. HIFU FACIAL
Emsculpt is a breakthrough device, offering non-invasive body contouring, with no down-time, 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.

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 the inner structure of the targeted muscles.
What type of body condition is Emsculpt best suited to?
Emsculpt works best for people who are already relatively fit and want to firm up. The ideal candidate is really anyone who’s looking to get stronger muscles and a stronger core, who wants to be tighter and burn fat. Because it addresses only muscle tone and overlying fat, it is not recommended for significant weight loss.
How many treatments are needed?
Four sessions are recommended, typically spaced two to five days apart, over a two-week period. Follow-up sessions every six months, paired with regular exercise, can help to maintain results.
What other treatment can this be used with?
Emsculpt is a non-invasive treatment and can be combined with other non-invasive treatments. For specific treatments consult with your doctor.
What is High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology?
High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) field technology is a technology with the ability to induce supramaximal muscle contractions. HIFEM creates a rapidly changing magnetic field that can penetrate through the skin to impact fat and muscle tissues, creating electric currents in them. It essentially depolarizes neural membranes and governs motor units in the target muscles, causing concentric contractions.
When will the results start showing?
- People who are relatively fit may see improvements after just one Emsculpt session. After the recommended four sessions over a two-week period, good candidates for the procedure should see an increase in muscle tone and a reduction in fat in the treated areas.
- Final results may take longer to appear, especially in areas with more fat. The muscle will continue to build over the next couple of months
How long will the results last?
Your muscles will continue to grow and your fat will shrink in the six months after you have the procedure. Emsculpt studies prove results in muscle growth continuing after a year of receiving the treatments.
What research has been carried out to confirm the results?
There are more than 15 peer-reviewed studies for Emsculpt.
