HARRISON, N.Y., May 18, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Emsculpt is a new body contouring procedure that is changing the way men and women sculpt their physique. The novel procedure is the first of its kind, cleared by the FDA for the improvement of “abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, development of firmer abdomen. As well as the strengthening, toning and firming of buttocks, thighs, and calves. And lastly for the improvement of muscle tone and firmness, for strengthening muscles in arms.” According to Dr. Teresa Lantin of Body Morph MD Medical Weight Loss Centers in Harrison and Yonkers, NY, “Emsculpt is a real game changer.” Dr. Lantin explains that prior to Emsculpt, “non-surgical body contouring treatments focused on reducing fat. Emsculpt is the first treatment to go beyond fat and focus on the development of muscle.”
Dr. Lantin believes that Emsculpt answers a strong consumer demand from her patients who “want to transform their waistline, not just shrink it.” According to Dr. Lantin, fat constitutes, on average, between “15% to 25% of body composition, while muscle contributes 36% to 42% of body composition.” Because of its large contribution to the overall shape and size of the body, it is necessary to develop muscle mass and improve muscle tone to achieve the fit, sculpted physique people are expecting from their body contouring treatments.
Emsculpt employs advanced technology to stimulating powerful muscle contractions. During treatment, High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy penetrates muscle tissue, stimulating the muscle fibers to contract. “This puts tension on the muscle, forcing the body to adapt to the pressure by creating new muscle fibers and fortifying existing ones.” Emsculpt induces powerful contractions, known as “supramaximal contractions.” These contractions are impossible to voluntarily perform with muscle building exercises. “A single, 30-minute treatment induces 20,000 supramaximal contractions.” To simulate this type of workout on the abdomen, an individual would have to perform 20,000 sit-ups.
In addition to muscle enhancement, Emsculpt is shown to reduce fat in the treated area. “Supramaximal contractions require a lot of resources to sustain. To fuel the powerful muscle contractions, the body taps into nearby fat cells for energy.” This leads to an overall reduction in fat. “Studies show a reduction of fat by 23% 6 months after the Emsculpt treatment,” notes Dr. Lantin.
