Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about EMSCULPT® Treatments:
How Does the Treatment with Electromagnetic Impulses Work?
In the area to be treated, for example the abdomen or buttocks, the pulse generator applicator is strapped on. It generates a strong electromagnetic field and causes the muscles to undergo thousands of intense contractions, so-called supracontractions.
For Which People is this Magnetic Field Treatment Suitable?
Men and women can benefit from this procedure although pure weight loss is not the focus of EMSCULPT®. If you are very overweight with large fat deposits on your stomach or bottom, you cannot be treated with this procedure. In case of larger fat depots liposuction promises better results.
What are the Disadvantages of an Application with EMSCULPT®?
People who are very overweight are not suitable for this procedure. The same applies to people who carry metal implants in their bodies or who are not allowed to undergo an MRI or CT.
Are EMS Devices the Same as EMSCULPT®?
The electro-myo-stimulation, in short EMS, works with electric current. Electric current seeks the path of least resistance and thus flows mainly through the skin and hardly through the muscle. Often more than 40 applications are necessary to achieve small results.
EMSCULPT® on the other hand does not work with electricity, it generates an electromagnetic field and thus penetrates the entire muscle. The nerves of the muscles are stimulated, which then react with a supra contraction. This kind of contraction is not possible with strength training.
Is EMSCULPT® Safe?
Yes! Because in contrast to EMS devices no current flows. No needles or scalpels are used or technologies that “freeze” the grease away. In addition, it may only be used in medical practices.
What are the Possible Risks and Side Effects?
In general you should be healthy and fit for a treatment with EMSCULPT®.
EMSCULPT® is contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation. If you wear metal implants in the abdominal area, the upper part of the legs, in the area of the hips or buttocks or if you have a pacemaker, this procedure is not suitable for you. If a copper coil is used for contraception, the abdomen and buttocks cannot be treated either.
During treatment, slight swelling or redness may rarely occur in the treated areas of the body. But they usually subside quickly and do not require any additional treatment. After the treatment, the treated muscles feel exhausted and iIt is possible that sore muscles may occur.
How many Applications are Necessary for Body Shaping?
In order to achieve the desired result, a somewhat fit/athletic personality is favourable, but not a prerequisite. Usually, a treatment package consists of a total of four sessions. The sessions are carried out at intervals of two to three days. How many sessions are necessary varies from patient to patient.
What can I Expect from EMSCULPT®?
According to available studies a muscle gain of about 16% can be achieved with EMSCULPT®, along with a fat reduction of about 19%.
When can I see the First Result?
This varies from patient to patient. While some patients can already see positive changes after the first session, others require several sessions. After eight to ten weeks the process is complete.
Can I Tighten my Buttocks Without Surgery or Sports?
YES. This procedure quickly builds up muscles. In the area of buttock modelling (the system has its own program configuration for this), the focus is on building and strengthening the muscles. Fat is not reduced at the buttocks. After the treatment is completed, the buttocks appear firmer and visibly raised.
Who Carries out EMSCULPT®?
Applications with EMSCULPT® are exclusively performed in medical practices.
Are there Scientific Studies on EMSCULPT®?
Yes, currently 14 studies, carried out at universities and clinics, confirm the effect.
The system has been tested and approved for use by both the American FDA and the European regulatory authorities. The system is of course Medical Device and CE certified.
What does this Body Forming Cost?
The treatment, consisting of four sessions, costs 1.900 €. In order to achieve an optimal result, four sessions are required at intervals of two to three days.
Do I Have to do Sports After the Treatment?
Muscles are extremely “lazy”. If they are not trained or used regularly, the body reduces the existing muscle mass again. However, studies show that the results last for at least 1 year, probably even longer. Moderate training and sufficient sport during and after the treatment series, have a beneficial effect and thus reinforce the desired result. It is important to drink plenty of water during the treatment phase. 2.5 to 3 litres of water per day, help the body to eliminate dead fat cells from the body.
