BODY SCULPTING & CONTOURING
BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT
Current non-invasive body shaping therapies address fat and skin. But what happens when one has less than an inch of pinchable fat, or wants to improve the tone and shape of one’s stomach, arms, legs or buttocks? After all, more than a third of one’s body is comprised of muscles.
The EMSCULPT® is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and burn fat. In addition, the EMSCULPT® creates the world’s first non-invasive buttock lifting procedure.
EMSCULPT® does not use a heating/cooling principle, so there are no risks of burns, scarring or swelling. The recommended treatment plan is four 30-minute treatment sessions over two weeks. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over six months. EMSCULPT® strengthens gluteal or abdominal muscles and burns fat, all while you relax, laying down.
HOW DOES IT WORK? HIFEM TECHNOLOGY
High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) field technology is a technology with the ability to induce supramaximal muscle contractions. HIFEM creates a rapidly changing magnetic field that can penetrate through the skin to impact fat and muscle tissues, creating electric currents in them. It essentially depolarizes neural membranes and governs motor units in the target muscles, causing concentric contractions.
In a typical EMSCULPT® session, approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions are induced, something that is not achievable by voluntary muscle action. Additionally, it affects only motor neurons that are activated, while other neurons or tissues are not responsive to the current, and therefore stay unaffected. The contractions are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also breakdown fat.
EMSCULPT® FOR MUSCLES SEPARATION
Diastasis recti is a medical term that describes the separation of the abdominal muscles. This most commonly occurs during pregnancy, as the belly increases in size to accommodate a growing baby, which can stretch the abdominal muscles. EMSCULPT offers the first non-surgical means that may improve this condition.
HOW CAN PATIENTS BENEFIT FROM THE PROCEDURE?
Firstly, EMSCULPT® can or may help patients achieve slimmer and more athletic body contours, by reducing abdominal fat and simultaneously building the muscle foundations underneath the fat.
Secondly, when applied to buttocks EMSCULPT® can give patients a more lifted, athletic kind of buttocks.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR PRE/POST TREATMENT PREPARATION?
Compared to other procedures, there is absolutely no downtime with the EMSCULPT®. After the procedure it feels like you had an amazing workout, and you can get back to work immediately following the procedure.
EMSCULPT® has been used in over a dozen clinical studies and tested by a number of professionals in order to prove its efficacy and safety. The fact that no anaesthetic and downtime is necessary is another reason why this procedure has increased in popularity.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS - AKA FAT FREEZING
WHAT IS FAT FREEZING?
Cooltech® is the most advanced system in the world today utilising cryolipolysis, a medical treatment for destroying fat cells. This type of treatment is more commonly known as fat freezing. This non-invasive procedure selectively targets and eliminates the fat cells permanently by freezing them without damaging any of the surrounding tissue.
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that uses a controlled cooling technology to kill fat cells, without surgery. It’s the most effective non-surgical way to permanently remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A special vacuumed applicator is applied to an area of the body and a controlled cooling technique lowers the treatment area to between -5 & -9 degrees.
Cooling energy treats the fat layer without any damage to surrounding cells or tissue.
As fat cells cannot survive at this temperature, these fat cells crystallise and die and over a period of up to 12 weeks, as they are naturally eliminated from the body.
The result: 20-30% of permanent fat cell death in treated areas!
After your 12 week follow up appointment, should you want to treat the same area to reduce the area further, under the advice of the practitioner this can be performed again but not before this time.
AM I A SUITABLE CANDIDATE?
Cryolipolysis is most effective in people who have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It does not appear to be effective in people who have large amounts of fat to lose. So if you are within 15 kilos of your ideal weight and have fat pockets that can be grabbed, then fat freezing may well be the treatment for you.
At your initial complimentary consultation, our Body Specialist will be able to advise if fat freezing is appropriate for you.
Areas that can be treated include:
Double Chin, Arms, Love Handles, Abdomen, Inner Thighs, Outer Thighs, Banana Rolls, Bra Back Bulges
More than 1,000,000 successful Cooltech body sculpting treatments have been performed worldwide with an overall satisfaction rate of 95%. Today the Cooltech system is available in aesthetic medical practises in more than 40 countries.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM FAT FREEZING?
To begin, the target areas will be marked on your body to ensure correct placement of the applicator, and photographs along with measurements will be taken to be added to your file . Once you are settled in comfortably, a Coolpad (anti-freeze membrane) is placed on the skin surface to protect it. After positioning the applicator, the fat pocket is drawn up into the ‘cup’ of the hand piece.
There will be some tightness felt by the vacuum pressure and a tingly cold sensation for only 5-10 minutes until the entire area is numbed by the low temperature. When the applicator is removed, the treated area will feel cold and firm to the touch.
A 5 minute after-treatment massage will help restore the frozen fat layer back to normal and will also assist in optimising your weight loss results.
The treated area might remain tender and there may be slight intermittent tingling or numbness for around 4 weeks afterwards. This is normal and a good sign the treatment has taken effect. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after as it is a non-invasive procedure. This is one of the reasons that fat freezing is such a sought after service.
