Athletics meets aesthetics with patented technology
When you’re up in the gym just working on your fitness, it can be frustrating to plateau in progress. You’re at the weight you want and you feel healthy, but you can’t achieve the killer six pack you’ve always wanted. We offer technology by BTL Aesthetics, patented HIFEM as a way to “spot” reduce areas of fat while simultaneously improving your muscle mass, tone, and definition.
This treatment provides patients with the opportunity to tone their abdominals and gluteal muscles in a way that is simply not possible at the gym, all while burning stubborn fat at the same time.
1. It packs in a powerful workout
EMSCULPT and EMBODY tone and tighten the abdominal muscles and buttocks. Relying on High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy, it contracts the muscles at their maximum power for results equivalent of performing 20,000 sit-ups or squats. This can lead to muscle mass enlargement of 16 percent and a fat reduction of up to 20 percent. I loved watching early adopter Kim Kardashian West getting her Emsculpt session.
2. You Can Increase Muscle Tone
Every personal trainer will tell you that you cannot spot train certain areas to build muscle and lose fat, and those trainers are correct. However, with Emsculpt and Embody, you can do just that. This treatment causes the muscles to contract in a superhuman way. The human brain cannot create the same type of strong muscle contractions that this device can, which is what helps define the muscles and tone them quickly, effectively, and efficiently.
3. HIFEM technology is patented to the EMSCULPT + EMBODY brands
No it’s not the same technology as other devices in the market. Emsculpt and Embody are not different versions of an existing device or technology in the market. It’s a totally new technology. High-intensity focused electromagnetic technology, (HIFEM) is closer to the magnetic fields utilised by something like an MRI machine. The HIFEM energy induces powerful supramaximal muscle contractions that build muscle cells in both quantity and size much more quickly than could be achieved by voluntary muscle contractions during typical strength training.
Let’s talk about some of these terms. Adding muscle cells is called muscle hyperplasia, the creation of new protein strands and muscle fibers. Emsculpt and Embody also initiate growth of muscle cells, muscle hypertrophy, which is the growth of existing myofibrils.
BTL Aesthetics are behind this technology, and are pioneers in the aesthetics and physiotherapy segments. Behind every product stands 300 engineers whose goal is to develop cutting-edge therapies that are safe, comfortable and efficacious day in, day out.

4. Supramaximal contractions
Supramaximal is another term you will hear frequently if you’re researching Emsculpt and Embody. It refers to high tension muscle contractions that exceed the highest amount of tension your muscles can exert and hold under normal conditions (maximal voluntary contractions). HIFEM energy penetrates through skin to impact fat, as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces 20,000 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. It’s the only technology that builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
5. You Can Target and Treat Diastasis Recti
If you’ve never been pregnant before, diastasis recti may sound like words from a foreign language, but if you have been pregnant, you may be one of the millions of women who suffer from this condition. Diastasis recti is a condition that develops during pregnancy that causes the abdominal muscles to separate, creating a gap down the center of the stomach muscles. Studies have shown that this treatment can reduce diastasis recti by 11%.
6. It’s Non-Invasive
Emsculpt and Embody use innovative technology to burn fat and tone muscle in a completely non-invasive way. It requires no poking, prodding, incisions, or surgical measures to complete. Your skin won’t be cut, fat won’t be suctioned, and you won’t need any incisions or stitches.
7. There’s No Downtime
Once you undergo this treatment, you will be amazed at the fact that there is no downtime. You won’t need to plan around any recovery time, you won’t need someone to help you around the house for several days, and you won’t need anyone to drive you to and from your treatments. You won’t have to follow a list of post-treatment directives, nor will you experience any disruption in your daily routine post-treatment.
8. The Results Are Progressive and Gradual
Ok let’s just say you will feel it straight away – your core will feel tighter, stronger and more toned, but if you want to keep your treatments hidden from your friends, family, and co-workers, you will be happy to know that the results that come from this treatment are gradual. You won’t walk out after your first session looking completely different, but you will experience gradual fat loss and muscle improvements in the weeks that follow your treatments. Your results will come gradually over six months and will be noticeable, but will also look completely natural.
9. The Results Are Proven
The results don’t lie. Whether they are results reported in study findings, or they are tangible visible results in the form of before and after photos, these results are proven. Studies have even shown that one of the results of this treatment, when performed on fit individuals, is improved athletic performance. That means, whether you participate in sports, or you limit your athletic abilities to time spent in the gym, your overall athletic performance will improve. Emsculpt and Embody are the only devices in the market that are continually backed by countless scientific and clinical studies.
10. Affect Both Muscle and Fat
“The current approach to body shaping is through circumferential reduction, and we love that; however, muscle tone affects overall body contour,” explained Dr. James Lam. “Muscle contraction via Embody goes beyond simply melting fat on the legs, stomach, arms, etc. It stimulates muscle growth that not only translates to strength gains, it will help women recover core strength after pregnancy. Most people suffering back pain will also benefit from improved core strength, which both Emsculpt and Embody can provide.”
The Bottom line:
Sometimes it is the strength building component that our clients are seeking, and is what influences their decision to add it to their treatment plans. It’s a perfect solution for men and women. Freezing fat with a procedure like Cristal is very helpful. But adding a muscle building procedure like Embody to one’s routine will remove pockets of fat and strengthen the underlying muscles. For individuals who are physically fit, Embody is a tool they could explore to put the final touches on all their hard work. Combining the two modalities, or “stacking” procedures, is something that we will be offering to those who want high-impact muscle building and fat loss results, in less time.
