If you're looking to tone and shape your body, but are hesitant to undergo invasive procedures, FormSculpt EM may be the solution for you. FormSculpt EM is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate muscle contractions and build muscle. In this blog, we'll explore what FormSculpt EM is, how it works, and the benefits it offers.
What is FormSculpt EM?
FormSculpt EM is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses HIFEM energy to stimulate muscle contractions. The treatment is FDA-cleared and can be used to improve muscle mass, tone, and shape in areas like the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs. FormSculpt EM is ideal for those who want to build muscle and tone their body but don't want to undergo surgery or spend hours at the gym.
How Does FormSculpt EM Work?
FormSculpt EM works by delivering HIFEM energy to the muscles in the targeted area. This energy causes intense, involuntary muscle contractions that are not achievable through voluntary contractions alone. The muscle contractions triggered by FormSculpt EM are so intense that they can cause the muscles to remodel and grow stronger.
During a FormSculpt EM treatment, a special device is placed on the targeted area. The device delivers high-intensity electromagnetic energy to the muscles, causing them to contract rapidly. The contractions are similar to those experienced during a workout, but they're much more intense and more frequent. Though it may seem counterintuitive, this type of muscle contraction is far more comfortable than a standard gym session. It incurs significantly less lactic acid production, making recovery much quicker and less painful. The treatment can last anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. During these sessions, an aesthetician will discuss your goals with you, apply the treatment device, and help you get into a comfortable position. You will either be laying or sitting for the entirety of the procedure and are welcome to relax by reading, working on your laptop, or watching your favorite show. As long as the clothing over the treatment area is formfitting and free of any metal, there is no need to remove it. Most patients undergo a series of regular treatments for optimal results.
Benefits of FormSculpt EM
Builds muscle - FormSculpt EM is an effective way to build muscle and improve muscle tone and definition. Because muscle tissue requires more calories for maintenance than fat tissue, many patients will experience some reduction in fat as a result of their treatments.
Non-invasive - FormSculpt EM is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. Providing you are dressed in the recommended clothing, there is no need to disrobe for the procedure.
Time-saving - FormSculpt EM can save time by providing a workout that would typically take hours to achieve in the gym.
Complements other treatments - FormSculpt EM can be used in conjunction with other treatments, like CoolSculpting, to provide comprehensive body contouring results.
