What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring was born out of the need for the American population for cosmetic options during the housing market recession after 2008. Contouring of the body was originally accomplished by the removal of fat, toning of muscle and tightening of skin by invasive surgical treatments like liposuction or abdominoplasty. After the recession patients were looking for cosmetic options without the downtime of an open surgical procedure. Many people were having to work longer hours and be available for their jobs. Time off for recovery could mean the loss of a job. We could not afford the downtime of a cosmetic procedure. Enter Body Contouring.

 Coolsculpting was born in 2008 and has since had revisions to optimize fat loss literally by freezing fat through multiple applications effecting fat reduction locally. Patients have had great results with these procedures with loss of fat but not without some risks as there have been documented cases of burns and skin discoloration. Enter EmSculpt.

What is EmSculpt and EmSculpt Neo?

Toning options have been attempted with mixed results until EmSculpt entered the scene in 1993. While designing options to help with urinary incontinence by strengthening pelvic floor muscles investigators started to notice their patients were developing abdominal muscles. Fast forward 15 years and the device coupled with RF did what other body contouring devices had not done to date: combine procedures. They were toning muscle while at the same time inducing fat cells to break down AND tightening skin. This was accomplished by combining HIFEM technology with RF.

Effectiveness of fat reduction with Emsculpt is up to 17% with nearly the same amount of muscle development and patients around the globe have been amazed at the results obtained.

Treatments involve four 30-minute sessions over a 4-week period and results are seen at 6-8 weeks.

Down time is negligible as given the HIFEM technology, even though you are effectively contracting their muscles 30,000 times during a treatment they are not having the discomfort that would be associated with the exercise regimen given the treatment application. In October of 2020 BTL released their newest model, a Body Contouring masterpiece named EmSculpt Neo. This newest design obtains a 30% fat reduction, 25% increased muscle mass and skin tightening; ALL IN ONE.

Results are backed by scientific study. 7 studies to date with data to support results. This combined with no adverse events; HOME RUN.

Six to Eight weeks after completing treatment patients were experiencing the above results. Given the time and attention above to develop their findings they have since obtained FDA approval for treatment of the Abs, Buttocks, Thighs, Calves and Arms. To date, this Body Contouring device has the most published scientific studies to support their results obtained.


Who has had this done?

Over the past several years many patients have undergone this treatment and endorsed it. Many celebrities tout its effectiveness and endorse its use, including but not limited to Kim Kardashian, Drew Barrymore and most recent to board the EmSculpt train Carmen Electra.
