BTL Emsculpt Builds Muscle and Burns Fat

Does the idea of doing 20,000 crunches or squats in 30 -minutes sound virtually impossible? While it may be an impossibility at the gym, our latest, FDA cleared BTL EMSCULPT® technology addresses both muscle and fat. One thirty-minute session with EMSCULPT® is the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches or squats. We are very happy to be the first provider in Michigan to be able to offer EMSCULPT® to our patients.

We have been offering non-invasive body contouring and skin tightening options at Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery for many years. However, until now, none of these modalities such as CoolSculpting, Exilis Ultra or Vanquish ME have been able to address the underlying muscle to help tone and shape the abdomen or buttocks. Did you know that one third of the body is muscle? Loss of fat without addressing the underlying muscle has been our only option until now. EMSCULPT® provides another option to our BTL family of products and we anticipate many patients will use a combination approach for body contouring, muscle building and skin tightening. It also provides a nice option for those who have had a tummy tuck and want to enhance their result by building muscle.

This revolutionary new treatment option uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electomagnetic) technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. These supramaximal contractions force the muscle to adapt, and it responds with deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat reduction.

EMSCULPT® can be useful for men and women of all ages, and is performed twice a week for two weeks in a row. People of all shapes and sizes are candidates for EMSCULPT®. There have been no reported complications from the treatment, and patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately. EMSCULPT® can be used on the abdomen or on buttocks to provide a non-surgical option to a Brazilian Butt Lift. Two separate protocols allow for fat burning and muscle building in the abdomen, and muscle building and toning for the gluteal area. Our treatment providers will help develop a body contouring protocol that will give you maximum benefits.
