Electro Magnetic Body Sculpting
Is a non-invasive body contouring procedure using High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology, which helps improve abdominal tone and strengthening its muscles resulting in firmer abdomen. Strengthening, toning and firming of buttocks, thighs, and calves. Improvement of muscle tone and firmness, for strengthening muscles in arms.
What is Electro Magnetic Body Contouring?
Ideal Body Med Spa utilizes a state-of-the-art EM Contour Pro stimulating device in body-contouring procedures. The procedure is FDA cleared to burn fat and build muscle mass. Just like a tense machine we use in our everyday life, EM Contour Pro, contracts muscles beyond what is possible through voluntary effort, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat reduction. The process works by directing highly focused electromagnetic energy to the area, forcing the muscles to contract to 100% and holding it there for up to six seconds. The average person, no matter how strong, can only contract their muscles to their 30-35% capacity for a fraction of a second. In response to these contractions, the muscle reconstructs itself, and fat cells in the area are eliminated. EM Contour Pro is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. It is a great option for many patients, because they don’t have to prep for treatment or follow any kind of post-care plan. Some patients experience mild soreness, but nothing as intense as what you would feel from a traditional workout.
Any Risks Associated with EM Body Contouring?
Elector-magnetic therapy has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent US-based clinical studies. In fact, on average, the following results 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) • 5x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment) • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks • 96% patient satisfaction There are a few contraindications that our team will go through with you during a consultation. The main risk is metal implants, Copper IUD and pacemakers in body near the treatment site.
How is this different from CoolSculpting?
Results from these 2 treatments are pretty different, and hard to compare. CoolSculpting is used to target stubborn fat, where electro-magnetic therapy is used to build and tone muscle. Patients looking for a more toned look (and who are already fairly lean) are great candidates for electro-magnetic muscle stimulation. If patients want to reduce “pinchable” rolls of fat then they will likely be a better candidate for CoolSculpting. Most patients fall somewhere in between these two extremes, and that’s where the consultation process helps to determine which treatment the better option. Some of the benefits include: • Noninvasive body contouring procedure using High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology • Stimulates high intensity muscle contractions to build muscles without the gym • Help work and build up muscles to tone targeted areas • 30 minute session twice a week for best results
Does EM Contour Pro Hurt? What's the Treatment Like?
This procedure doesn't cause pain or discomfort. Patients usually say they feel a “pulling” sensation. Our technicians have total control of the treatment intensity, so patients are always treated at a level that is comfortable to them. At the first appointment, patients will have photos of the treatment area taken so that we are able to benchmark progress. The first step is securing the applicator to the treatment area, then the process begins! Each treatment takes 20-40 minutes depending on the area.
When will I see results? How Long Does It Last?
You will begin to feel results immediately after EM Contour Pro session. These will be small changes, like posture improvements of decreased fatigue during exercise. Most patients notice visible results around three months post-treatment and maintain results with a maintenance plan. Clinical studies have shown that results can continue to improve for up to six months. If you don't work out regularly, those muscle atrophy. Same with EM therapy. You can expect to keep your results for six months to a year, but it is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise. We also have special maintenance pricing after you finish your package so you can come in to maintain results.
