What is Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS)?


This is a non-invasive, FDA-approved body sculpting treatment that uses the power of electromagnetism to tighten muscles and burn fat in areas where pockets of body fat typically collect, like the belly and the thighs.




How does it work?


This treatment works by simultaneously building muscle and burning fat in the area of treatment. It does this by sending electromagnetic pulses into the muscles themselves, causing them to contract as though they are undergoing a strenuous workout. In fact, the treatment’s process gives muscles a workout that would be impossible in a gym. It can deliver a whopping 20,000 muscular contractions in just 30 minutes. If the treatment is being done on your abdominal muscles, that’s like doing 20,000 crunches in a half hour. The process strengthens muscle fibers just like a good workout does, only more efficiently. The intensity of the muscular contractions also releases a naturally occurring chemical in the body called epinephrine that tells fat cells in the area to break down. That’s a very big deal because, as we are about to see, fat cells are extremely tough to get rid of.




When will I see results?


While a small handful of patients see results after just two weeks, most people will have to wait four to six weeks to begin to see their results. In trials, patients reported a 19% reduction in fat in the treated area after one month. Those results continue to develop over time, and this number jumped to 23% after six months. This happens because it takes time for the body to break down and metabolize the fat cells that have been destroyed by the release of epinephrine. Another study found an average muscle increase of 15% thickness in the abdominal wall, while yet another study saw patients report an average waist size reduction of a whopping 1.7 inches three months after abdominal treatments. This treatment will not only burn away stubborn pockets of body fat in notoriously frustrating areas of the body, but also tone the muscle underneath the fat and allow this newfound definition to shine through. Best of all, the results appear gradually just as if they were the result of diet and exercise. You won’t have to worry about people noticing you’ve had a specially cosmetic treatment.




Does it hurt?


During this treatment you will experience a pulsing sensation as it is designed to stimulate and target your muscles and help you achieve those abs you work so hard to attain.




When can I return to my normal activities?


Immediately. There is no downtime with EMS. You can go back to work or resume your normal activities. This is the best treatment to have on your lunch hour. This treatment can also be paired to have done after any laser hair removal treatment.
