HIFEM Sculpt

THE REVOLUTIONARY NEW TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT

It is the only non-invasive, non-surgical aesthetic treatment to build muscle and burn fat. With established muscle development and fat loss in areas such as the abdomen, arms and buttocks. This is a non-invasive procedure without the surgery, pain or down time!

HIFEM Sculpt is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment, designed specifically to reduce fat and build muscle.

To achieve your ideal body contours, you don’t just want to slim down, you may want to improve tone and strengthen your core. HIFEM Sculpt is the only procedure in the world that eliminates fat and also builds muscle simultaneously, without surgery.

The HIFEM Sculpt is an alternative to surgical buttock procedures, offering a non-invasive buttock lifting!

In a typical HIFEM Sculpt 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!

HIFEM Sculpt for MUSCLE 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. HIFEM Sculpt offers the first non-surgical means that may improve this condition.

One of the great applications of the HIFEM Sculpt machine is its applicability to help close the diastasis. The treatment can start 6 months after pregnancy and is safe during breastfeeding.

A woman who suffers from it can find that it really helps start to bring her body back to the pre-pregnancy state. It is also a good way to bring the body to tone before hitting the gym again and can lift those postpartum blues.

 

In a study conducted in USA, 22 patients were evaluated 2 months after four 30-min treatments. Abdominal fat thickness was reduced on average by 18.6 % or 4.3 mm.

 

Abdominal muscle mass increased on average by 15.4 %, coupled with a 10.4 % average reduction in diastasis recti (the study also included patients who had not had children).

 

Waist circumference decreased on average by 1.4 inches.

The effects on muscle tissue

Because the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to supramaximal contractions, which are extreme, it responds with a deep remodelling of its inner structure. The myofibrils grow (muscular hypertrophy) and new protein strands and muscle fibres are created (muscle hyperplasia). The rise in muscle density and volume lead to a better definition and muscle tone.

The effects on fat tissue

All tissues of the body, especially muscles, require energy. Muscles function by using it to produce contractions. This energy is derived primarily from the energy molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and secondarily from creatine phosphate and glycogen to fuel the muscles. When these reserves are no longer available, the body begins a series of reactions that breakdown other sources. These are called catabolic processes that take place in the different forms, one of which is lipolysis – i.e. the breakdown of lipids (triglycerides) into free fatty acids (FFA) and glycerol. These released molecules can then act as an alternative source for the needed muscle activity and body metabolism.

As mentioned already, a HIFEM Sculpt treatment induces supramaximal contractions. During this, signals are sent to the brain stating that an extreme amount of energy is going to be needed to make these contractions possible and the release of epinephrine is acutely increased. Epinephrine signals fat cells to initiate lipolysis which is an extreme catabolic reaction that releases a high amount of free fatty acids (FFA). When the amount of released FFA exceed normal levels, they start accumulating within the surrounding adipocytes (fat cells) at extremely high levels that eventually lead to their dysfunction and death (apoptosis). The dead cells collapse and the body flushes them out naturally.

 

This catabolic and supramaximal lipolysis effect occurs mainly close to the contracting muscles, that have elevated adipose tissue blood flow and paracrine substances releases. The fact that oversaturation by FFA causes cell apoptosis has been previously observed and demonstrated in numerous research studies.

What’s the Science Behind HIFEM Sculpt?

This non-invasive device uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to initiate a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, which are more powerful than voluntary muscle contractions.

More specifically, during voluntary muscle contraction, muscle fibers are able to relax after each nervous stimulus. However, HIFEM Sculpt generates muscle contraction so rapidly that there is not a period of relaxation.

As a result, HIFEM causes intense destruction of fat cells, stimulates deep remodeling of muscle tissue, and produces a slimmer, stronger, and well-defined abdomen and butt.

How Many Emsculpt Treatments Are Necessary?

 

Each treatment lasts 30 minutes and doesn’t require any anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. For best results, a series of 4 sessions spaced 2-3 days apart is recommended.

 

Is HIFEM Sculpt Painful?

HIFEM is a very comfortable procedure, and patients are able to recline while the device does all of the work. The treatment feels similar to an intense workout, and normal activities can be resumed immediately after.

HIFEM Sculpt vs. Fat Freezing – Which Is Best for You?

Deciding between these two often depends on each person’s concerns, goals, and anatomy. 

That being said, Fat Freezing may be the best option if you only want to reduce isolated pockets of fat in various parts of the body. 

However, if you are concerned about muscle tone and adding definition to your physique, only HIFEM Sculpt can offer both of these benefits. HIFEM is also the obvious choice for patients that want to lift their buttocks or repair diastasis recti after pregnancy or a workout injury.

Finally, while both procedures have zero recovery, HIFEM may be better for those seeking a quick treatment time and fast onset of results. 

More specifically, HIFEM sessions are spaced days apart, instead of weeks, and each session takes just 30 minutes. 

Therefore, it’s not surprising that patients note results sooner from HIFEM Sculpt (two-to-four weeks after the last treatment) than Fat Freezing (eight to twelve weeks after first session, with three months between treatments).

Common Questions about This Treatment

WHAT IS HIFEM SCULPT?

HIFEM Sculpt is a non-invasive procedure to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat.
It is the most recent technological advance which has revolutionalized the whole field of non-invasive
body shaping.

HOW CAN PATIENTS BENEFIT FROM THE PROCEDURE?

HIFEM can or may help patients achieve slimmer and more atheltic body contours, by reducing
abdominal fat and simultaneously building the muscle foundations underneath the fat.
Secondly, when applied to buttocks HIFEM can give our patients a more lifted, athletic kind of buttocks. It is currently the only non-invasive buttock lifting procedure in the world.

HOW DOES HIFEM Sculpt COMPARE TO THE OTHER PROCEDURES THAT ARE OUT THERE?

HIFEM is the only procedure in the world that not only targets fat, but also simultaneously builds
your muscles. All the other technologies are good, but they only treat fat. HIFEM not only reduces fat but strengthens underlying muscles. It is not based on a heating/cooling principle, so there are no risks of burns, scarring or swelling.

Furthermore, none of the other technologies can give you a non-invasive buttock lift. Through
strengthening of all your gluteal muscles, HIFEM established a completely new category
of treatments – a non-invasive buttlift. A post treatment consultation is required and individual results may vary.

WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE?

Fairly anyone can benefit from the HIFEM Sculpt procedure. During the consultation, you will discuss
the exact expectations to help tailor a specific treatment plan for you.

IS IT SAFE?

The new HIFEM Sculpt  is FDA cleared, medical CE-marked, and represents the first innovative
technology that has shown in multiple studies to treat both muscle and fat. When you come in for
a consultation, we will cover how body sculpting with HIFEM Sculpt works and discuss the
unique safety profile in detail.

IS IT PAINFUL?

That is the best thing about the HIFEM Sculpt. Patients say it is completely painless, the procedure
feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during the treatment. During your consultation, our staff will be more than happy to let you experience the unrivaled comfort of the procedure.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR PRE/POST TREATMENT PREPARATION?

Compared to other procedures, there is absolutely no downtime with the HIFEM Sculpt. After the
procedure it feels like you had an amazing workout, and you can get back to work immediately
following the procedure.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

This may vary depending on your age, physical condition, BMI and many other aspects. In general
patients begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported
two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the
treatments.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST? DO I HAVE TO REPEAT THE PROCEDURE REGULARLY?

Nothing in life lasts forever, but the clinical studies show that majority of patients are still better
in both muscle and fat even a year after their treatment series. However we recommend to book
another consultation a few months after your treatments to see if you may benefit from any additional
treatments. Keeping a healthy lifestyle is the key to maintain your results in longer term.

ARE YOU SURE THIS WORKS? IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

Yes! There are multiple scientific studies published that document in detail how HIFEM Sculpt helps patients.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Well it really depends. We need to see you to determine your medical condition, and areas you would
like to treat to recommend how many treatments are needed to get the result you are after. 

We recommend 4 x 30 min treatments over a 2 week period for best results. Package pricing starts from $2000.
