First-of-its-kind treatment creates new approach to body shaping with no needles, pain or downtime
Grosse Pointe, MI – July 2019 – Dr. David S. Balle and Dr. Judith L. Lipinski announces the addition of Emsculpt, the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that simultaneously addresses both Muscle and Fat. Emsculpt introduces an entirely new technology to the category that goes beyond waist line reduction and elimination of fat cells. This dual treatment addresses physiological distinctions currently excluded from other procedures, such as muscle, making it ideal for fit individuals with a lower BMI and those seeking a boost for improvement in muscle and fat in hard to target areas.
“Muscles represent about 35% of the human body, but existing aesthetic treatments only focus on the reduction of fat and fail to address muscle,” said Dr. Balle. “Emsculpt now offers a procedure to treat our fitness focused patients who are not candidates for existing technologies as they don’t have bulk or excess fat to lose. The other really great thing is it also shows promising results with balance and core strength for women with diastasis recti after childbirth, in more mature patients who could benefit from more stability, and some relief for those with back issues. By finally addressing muscle tone, this treatment supports an individual’s desire to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle, helping them address and further define those particularly challenging areas to target,” said Dr. Balle.
Emsculpt is FDA-cleared for the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs. The game changing technology helps patients achieve next-level contouring results and increases strength and stamina in multiple areas, with more expected in the near future.
Utilizing HIFEM® technology, Emsculpt offers a first-of-its-kind application of a unique magnetic field which penetrates through skin to deliver almost 20,000 muscular contractions per 30 minute session to impact muscle, as well as fat. Once penetrated, the energy induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also reduce fat. This is the ONLY technology that builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
