EMSCULPT from Skybalance Med Spa
Skybalnce Med Spa introduces a groundbreaking new approach to sculpting the abdomen with Emsculpt –the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that simultaneously addresses both Muscle and Fat. Bringing an entirely new technology to the category, Emsculpt utilizes HIFEM® energy to induce powerful muscle contractions which builds muscles and burns fat. FDA-cleared for the improvement of abdominal tone and strengthening of the abdominal muscles, Emsculpt helps patients achieve next-level, contouring results.
Muscles represent about 35% of the human body, but existing aesthetic treatments only address fat. Emsculpt introduces a first of its kind application of a unique magnetic field. HIFEM technology penetrates through skin to impact fat, as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also reduce fat. This is the ONLY technology that builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
Tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies1 utilizing all four established methods of evaluation including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Histology, Emsculpt delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
- 19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- Average waist reduction of 4.4cm
- 96% satisfaction with treatment results
For optimal results, we recommend four 30-minute treatment sessions over the course of a two-week period. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over a 6-month time period.
EMSCULPT® is a revolutionary technology that builds muscle and reduces fat. It is an innovative way to contour your body by stimulating muscle contractions with no surgery or downtime. EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared to build muscle, improve muscle tone, and increase strength safely and effectively.
EMSCULPT is the ideal treatment for anyone looking to build muscle and reduce fat to get defined abs or a non-invasive butt lift. If you are frustrated by fad exercises or long hours in the gym and feel like you could use some help achieving your desired results, EMSCULPT is the perfect solution for you. Our Skybalance providers and staff will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Treatment plans are customized to achieve the results you desire.
The EMSCULPT procedure feels like an intensive workout of muscles in the target area being treated. The variable level is increased by the EMSCULPT specialist during the treatment based on your feedback. The level is gradually increased over the series of treatments. You can lay down, relax, watch TV, and talk during the treatment. Use of portable electronic devices is not recommended since proximity to the EMSCULPT applicator may cause damage to delicate electronics.
Tangible results are felt right after the treatment, like an intensive work out of the target area muscles. Positive visible results are usually seen two to four weeks after the last session in the series of treatments. The underlying muscles require time to adapt and strengthen. Fat cells that are destroyed through apoptosis during the series of treatments are gradually and naturally eliminated by the body. Visible results continue to improve for weeks to months after the treatment series.
Prior to your treatment, you will come into Skybalance for a complimentary consultation with one of our EMSCULPT Specialists. Depending on what questions you may have, your consultation will take between 15 and 30 minutes. We have our physician, Dr. Sameer, on-site as well to answer any questions you may have. The EMSCULPT treatment will take about 30 minutes. Some people may elect to have additional treatments performed. Since EMSCULPT is non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no downtime. You could schedule a treatment for your lunch break and return to work immediately after. Normal physical activities can be resumed immediately after your EMSCULPT session.
No. EMSCULPT is non-invasive and requires no pre- or post-treatment preparation.
No, it was proven by multiple studies that buttock fat is less metabolically active fat than in the abdomen because of this, the body does not respond to EMSCULPT procedure with fat apoptosis when treating the buttocks.
Magnetic Technology has been around for decades and its safety has been proven through dozens of studies. The only tissue responsive to the energy are motor neurons, therefor it has no effects on other tissues including organs. Also, EMSCULPT only penetrates 7cm deep.
The results are long lasting and have been shown to maintain beyond six months. We recommend maintenance treatments as needed along with continued diet, exercise, and lifestyle modifications to keep you looking and feeling good! Speak with our representative about our EMSCULPT maintenance programs and Skybalance memberships.
The number of treatments required is dependent on your desired results and where you are starting in terms of muscle tone and undesirable fat. One series of EMSCULPT treatment will increase muscle up to 16% and reduce fat by up to 19% in the treated area. Many people are pleased with the results of just one series of 4 treatments of EMSCULPT. Some people feel that they need more than one series of treatments to achieve their desired results. During your free consultation, one of our EMSCULPT specialists will provide answers regarding how many treatments you may need to achieve your goals in the treated area.
The protocols are based on years of clinical testing. Muscles have the highest potential for improvements during the first few treatments which corresponds with what have been proven in studies for physical exercise. The 4 x 30min protocol is the best balance between time and results.
Emsculpt is intended for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development of a firmer abdomen. Also, Emsculpt is indicated for strengthening, toning, firming of the buttocks, thighs, arms, and calves.
- EMSCULPT is not an EMS device. It does not use electrodes to flow current in the body. It creates a magnetic field in the tissues
- Electric Stimulation is very localized, superficial and flows electric current from one electrode to another while stimulating a muscle. EMSCULPT penetrates up to 7cm below the skin and polarizes all the motor nerves in a neural network and which causes the stimulation of all the muscles in a treated area
- EMSCULPT is an MRI grade device and can deliver 2 Tesla of magnetic field
- TENS / EMS needs a conductive medium to work, whereas EMSCULPT does not
- EMSCULPT shows a positive muscular change in just 4 treatments compared to a TENS/EMS unit which needs 40-50 treatments to show even a small change
EMSCULPT is highly effective for building muscle and reducing fat – up to 19% per series of treatments – on the abdomen. EMSCULPT may result in some skin tightening in the treated area, however, EMSCULPT is not a skin tightening treatment.
While pain and discomfort are relative and experiences will vary, EMSCULPT involves minimal discomfort, if any. During the procedure, you will feel muscles contract with the treatment level gradually increased by the EMSCULPT specialist. After treatment, you will feel like your muscles have been worked. Any such feelings will be short-lived.
EMSCULPT treatment is not recommended in some circumstances due to the electromagnetic effects of the treatment. Please speak with our doctor/provider on site and let us know if you have any of the following:
- Have implanted metal (e.g.: IUD), a pacemaker or cardiac defibrillator near the treatment site.
- Have cardiac issues or a history of seizures.
- Have a hernia or have had recent surgery near the treatment site.
EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared and has helped many people build muscle and reduce excess fat, however, the procedure is not recommended for everyone. Prior to or after a pregnancy, EMSCULPT has no negative impact on women. Pregnant women are advised not to undergo a EMSCULPT treatment on any part of their body.
