How Emsculpt Works
Emsculpt uses HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic energy) to create muscle contractions stronger than you can achieve through voluntary exercise. These supramaximal contractions force the muscles to adapt and remodel their inner structure. This results in muscle building and body sculpting.
Since it creates contractions stronger that what you can achieve with physical training, it yields better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. Emsculpt destroys fat while building your muscles and creating a firmer, more toned appearance. On average, Emsculpt achieves the following results:
- 19% reduction of fat
- 4 cm (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
- 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
- 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
- 96% patient satisfaction
CoolTone, which was developed by Allergan, uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation technology to induce involuntary muscle contractions. This strengthens the muscle fibers and improves muscle conditioning. This creates a firmer, more defined appearance.
Both treatments use a similar method for stimulating muscle growth and reducing fat. However, CoolTone has around 50% more magnetic intensity. This is measured in tesla (T) at the point of patient contact. 0.9T with Emsculpt and 1.35T with CoolTone. The clinical significance of this data has not been established.
