Lean muscular physiques are the result of many hours spent at the gym. It takes months of frequent and consistent workouts to develop muscular definition that can be appreciated. Once you have muscles it is easy to maintain them but the process of getting them can be discouraging. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a shortcut? Well now there is!
It’s no secret that body contouring treatments exist that can permanently reduce localized areas of fat without diet, exercise or plastic surgery. Skinpossible offers several options already, so why would we add another? Because EMSCULPT goes beyond what any other treatment in existence can do! Until now, body contouring was only about fat! Beyond dealing with stubborn areas of localized fat, to get the attractive body you want, you need to build muscle!
EMSCULPT reduces fat and builds muscle! EMSCULPT works!
We admit that when we first heard about this new category of treatment we were skeptical. We didn’t believe four 30-minute EMSCULPT treatments could do much, and we also had our doubts that anyone wanting to build muscle would prefer being hooked up to a machine instead of just going to the gym. Once we looked at the clinical evidence we were intrigued. When we actually experienced an EMSCULPT treatment, however, we were convinced. We were, in fact, beyond impressed...we were blown away!
BODY CONTOURING…IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT FAT!
It takes a lot of effort, time, and self-discipline to build muscles at the gym, and not seeing visible results after numerous hard workouts can be discouraging. EMSCULPT is a short-cut to help you get the body you want quickly! Then all you need to do is maintain it. EMSCULPT is not a replacement for all the health benefits of exercise and healthy lifestyle, but it can help both women and men build muscle and burn fat. EMSCULPT can give you a six-pack without the sweat and it is the only non-invasive buttock lifting procedure in the world! It also works to improve the contour of thighs, and more.
Get a six-pack without the sweat!
Build your booty without the squats!
Lounges instead of lunges!
Shapely thighs without the size!
The fastest “guns” in the West!
How does EMSCULPT build muscle?
EMSCULPT uses High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to create supramaximal muscle contractions. Unlike voluntary contractions that can only be sustained briefly, during an EMSCULPT treatment the muscles are contracted to supramaximal levels and sustained intensely for varying durations of several seconds each. During a 30-minute treatment, repetitions of supramaximal contractions are applied six times. Comparing these rounds to a workout at the gym, you could think of each round as a “set.” Between each set, the machine delivers numerous intervals of mechanical massage. This breaks down lactic acid to reduce muscle soreness after this intense mechanically-induced workout. The 30-minute treatment amounts to the equivalent of doing 20,000 reps! The result is muscle hypertrophy and hyperplasia. In other words, the muscle grows and new strands of muscle fibers are created. Now, that is amazing!
How does EMSCULPT get rid of fat?
During the supramaximal muscle contractions, signals are sent to the brain that an extreme amount of energy is going to be needed to supply these contractions. This brings about a dramatic release of free fatty acids (FFA’s) that exceeds normal levels. As the FFA’s accumulate in surrounding adipocytes, catabolic and supramaximal lipolysis leads to their disfunction and results in apoptosis of the fat cells. In laymen’s terms, what this means is that EMSCULPT destroys the fat cells, permanently! The fat cells then clear from the body naturally just as they do after CoolSculpting or SculpSure, which are also offered at Skinpossible.
What results can be expected after EMSCULPT?
Reduction of fat and increased muscle density and volume lead to better definition and muscle tone! Based on seven independently audited clinical studies using CT scans, MRI, Ultrasound and blood tests, EMSCULPT results prove it is effective with zero non-responders! It is also completely safe, with no adverse events. Significant growth of muscle and reduction of fat occurs after an EMSCULPT treatment. Studies have shown that EMSCULPT can induce the following results:
An average 4 cm reduction in the waist line
An average 16% increase in the thickness of existing lean muscle
An average 7% increase in the number of muscle fibres
An average 19% reduction in fat within treatment area
An average 11% reduction in the separation of the abdominal muscle from pregnancy (diastasic recti)
96% of patients were satisfied with their treatment results!
*Results may vary
What is EMSCULPT? +
EMSCULPT is the first FDA-cleared energy device approved to burn fat and build muscle mass. It’s a no-downtime, pain-free, non-surgical way to define the abs and lift the buttocks.EMSCULPT contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. These results are backed by 7 clinical studies, showing fat loss as well as defined and sculpted muscles to the abdomen and buttocks following a series of 4 treatments.
How does EMSCULPT work? +
An EMSCULPT treatment consists of four 30-minute sessions performed over two weeks (every third day or so.) At each session, applicators are placed on the area to be treated, either directly on the skin or over your clothing. Then, all you have to do is relax and let the technology do the work!
What does EMSCULPT feel like? +
Your technician will set the intensity at about 20% for the first few contractions to allow you to adapt to the sensation. It is not painful but can be startling to the point of discomfort at first because you have never felt anything close to this before. Gradually the intensity is increased fully and by the end of the treatment the treated muscle will feel fatigued but oddly, awakened!
Will I be sore after EMSCULPT? +
The Emsculpt procedure doesn’t require any recovery time. Typically, you can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment. Your muscles will probably be sore the following day and maybe a day or two longer, just as they would be after a normal workout.
How long does it take to see results after EMSCULPT? +
You may start feeling and seeing results within just a few days after the treatment but it takes 6 weeks for the full muscular benefits to happen and 12 weeks to see the full fat loss results. Results do vary from person to person and successful treatment outcome can be affected by smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, as well as eating disorders or on-going medication. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy to help promote and maintain results.
How long do EMSCULPT results last? +
Once the fat cells are gone they will be gone for good! The muscle gains will be long lasting, just as they would be if the gains had resulted from weight-training. While muscle volume remains, strength and tone will gradually diminish, but this can easily be maintained at a gym. Once you have a muscle you will always have “muscle memory” and enhancement treatments can be used to build on that. Knowing how confidence-boosting it is to have a defined six-pack or a perky booty, you may want to do an enhancement treatment after six months to a year.Pricing for enhancement packages will be covered at the time of your consultation.
Who is a candidate for Emsculpt? +
While anyone can benefit from an EMSCULPT procedure, people with more than one inch of pinchable fat may benefit from CoolSculpting or SculpSure prior to receiving the EMSCULPT treatment. While the HIFEM waves do penetrate up to 7 cm, to truly appreciate the muscle improvement and see definition, the fat layer cannot be too thick. An ideal candidate for EMSCULPT will have less than an inch of pinchable fat.
What areas of the body can be treated with EMSCULPT? +
Current areas that can be treated are upper abdomen, lower abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Anyone wanting leaner abdominals, a perkier butt, or shapelier thighs will love EMSCULPT. New smaller curved applicators will soon be introduced (anticipated to arrive in August 2019). These will allow us to treat other areas such as obliques, biceps, triceps, calves and inner thighs! People who weight-train but have a stubborn body part that just won’t grow will be able to balance out their figure or physique with the addition of these new applicators.
Who should not have EMSCULPT? +
Emsculpt is extremely safe but there are a few contraindications. These incluse: Cardiac pacemakers, implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators, electronic implants, drug pumps, metal implants (growth plate, metal in head, neck or spine), heart disorders, current or previous hernia, pregnancy and breastfeeding, menstruation, recent surgical procedures where muscle contraction may disrupt the healing process, anticoagulation therapy, epilepsy, malignant tumour, pulmonary insufficiency and copper IUD. Please note that cell phones, apple watches and all electronics mus be removed prior to the treatment or they could get damaged.
How does EMSCULPT help diastasis recti, after childbirth? +
Patients with a condition called diastasis recti, a separation of the abdominal muscle associated with pregnancy, have shown to have an improvement / reduction of 11% with EMSCULPT. Furthermore, new moms report that EMSCULPT helps support a leaner and stronger body when they can’t get to the gym as much as they would like to.
How much does EMSCULPT cost in Calgary? +
The cost for EMSCULPT is set by the manufacturer, BTL Aesthetics. As a medical treatment it is priced accordingly, but when compared to the cost of a gym membership, a personal trainer, and your time, the muscular development and strength gains, along with the fat loss you will enjoy after a series of EMSCULPT treatments offers considerable bang for your buck! Skinpossible has numerous package combinations available. The first step is to establish if you are a candidate and that will require a consultation. We will even let you trial Emsculpt while you are here if the equipment is available.
What results are typical following EMSCULPT? +
BTL, the manufacturer of EMSCULPT, conducted 7 studies with over 200 patients on the abdomen and buttocks. The studies show how effective EMSCULPT is at burning fat and increasing muscle mass. They measured fat and muscle with imaging (CT scans and MRI studies), comparing photos before and after treatment, and measuring changes in waistline measurements.On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:
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
How much muscle mass will I tone with a series of EMSCULPT? +
In clinical studies, patients gained 16% muscle mass after a series of 4 treatments with EMSCULPT.
How long is an EMSCULPT treatment session? +
An EMSCULPT treatment session lasts 30 minutes. Clinical studies on EMSCULPT were done as a series of 4 treatments total, twice weekly treatments for 2 weeks.
How many EMSCULPT treatments are needed? +
Clinical studies with EMSCULPT for the abdomen and buttocks treated patients for 30 minutes, twice a week for 2 weeks, a total of 4 treatments. Typically, one treatment every 3-6 months for maintenance is required to maintain results.
How much fat will I lose with a series of EMSCULPT treatments? +
As per clinical studies, patients had an average of a 20% reduction in fat and a 1.5 inch average loss in waistline measurements following a series of 4 EMSCULPT treatments.
Who is not a candidate for EMSCULPT? +
Patients with significant fat stores may not be ideal candidates for EMSCULPT. The HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to power EMSCULPT penetrates to about 7 cm. Those with thicker fat stores may not get as significant of muscle contraction, resulting in less results following treatment.Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner or cramping is increased/intensified with EMSCULPT treatments, therefore we recommend not undergoing treatment during this time of the month.Possible contraindications to treatment include the following:
Metal or electronic implants in the treatment area
Pregnant and nursing females
Recent surgical procedures
Metal clamps from tubal ligation
Is EMSCULPT safe? +
Yes, focused electromagnetic energy from EMSCULPT is safe. A possible side effect could be mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is twice-weekly.
What happens if a gain weight after an EMSCULPT treatment? +
A healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise maintenance, is encouraged following your series of EMSCULPT treatments. An increase in weight will allow fat stores to accumulate.
Can EMSCULPT be combined with other body contouring treatments? +
Yes, EMSCULPT can be combined with non-invasive fat removal procedures like CoolSculpting to enhance fat reduction. For the buttocks, Ultherapy may be combined with EMSCULPT to shape and lift the derriere.
Is there any way to save money on EMSCULPT? +
At times it may be possible to share a package with a friend! The treatment includes application of two paddles but if only one paddle is needed, as is the case when treating a smaller abdomen, we would be happy to apply the other paddle to a second abdomen. Two applicators! Two treatment tables! Two abdomens! The cost is the same but the treatment but its half price when shared with a friend! That’s two 6-packs for the cost of one!
