What is EMSculpt?
Until now, in terms of body contouring, there has been nothing available to treat the muscle. Treating BOTH muscle AND fat, EMSculpt produces powerful contractions that can help you get a toned and strong core or a firm and lifted buttocks. Through the use of non-invasive HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology EMSculpt produces 20,000 supramaximal contractions in each 30-minute session.
The Electromagnetic waves essentially override the fight or flight mechanism (from the brain) that is normally present when you go to work out at the gym that won’t allow you to achieve supramuscular contraction despite your best efforts.
Based on the 3-month studies, this results in 16% muscle growth over 4 sessions. In order to achieve a supramaximal contraction (not possible to produce on your own) extreme amounts of energy are used up in the form of free fatty acids. In turn, studies have shown an impressive 20% fat loss as a by-product of the muscle growth.
One year after EMSculpt MRI and Cat scan results to quantify muscle growth and fat reduction 21 subjects showed and average fat reduction of 14.63% of fat reduction.
Ideal for Treating:
During your roughly 30-minute EMSculpt treatment, you can lay down comfortably without the need or worry of downtime. Ideal results usually occur following a series of four sessions scheduled two to three days apart. You may begin to feel results immediately following your initial treatment, with visually improved results emerging over the course of the next few weeks.
While some remain in good health the quality of life for many starts to deteriorate very early. We often see this decline starting with a sedentary lifestyle or the loss of mobility, leading to something called sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is the gradual loss of muscle mass and function, which can lead to falls, decreased bone density, low glucose intolerance, functional and mobility limitations, chronic pain, fatigue, and obesity. It has been shown to begin as early as the 4th decade of life and decline in a linear fashion. A decline in hormones and skeletal stem cells around this time are thought to play a role, since they are important in the maintenance of muscle mass.
Inflammatory pathway activation and loss of neuromuscular junctions are also thought to play a role, as well as declines in activity and nutritional intake. Sarcopenia is associated with chronic illness, diminished quality of life, loss of function and loss of independence.
The Science behind it all.
Given that muscle mass accounts for 60% of body mass sarcopenia can be detrimental to our health and physical quality of life. The only way to combat sarcopenia is to build muscle and incorporate a nutrition plan.
However, the ageing-related loss of ability to replenish and replace skeletal muscle is increasingly evident. This is because the skeletal stem cells, which are crucial to the regeneration of skeletal muscle appear to be compromised in older adults because of low integrin expression. This makes it more difficult to build muscle with traditional resistance exercise routines and until recently, this has been the only option. Earlier this year groundbreaking technology emerged with the use of high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to build muscle quickly in four, 30-minute sessions.
EMSculpt creates powerful, supramaximal contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions, which results in hyperplasia and hypertrophy of the muscle. In order to sustain this contraction, there is an immediate release of free fatty acids to fuel the muscle building process. As a result, the studies have shown an average of 16% increase in muscle mass and 19 % fat reduction at 3 months.
These results are expected to improve further by 1 year. The studies were confirmed by CT, MRI and histology and were consistent. Based on the studies provided, EMSCULPT has the ability to build muscle and reduce fat, preventing and improving sarcopenia and improving physical quality of life for patients.
