Tomorrow’s Wellness Center, the leader in non-surgical body contouring, is the first in South Jersey to offer EmSculpt®, the first FDA-cleared device to build and strengthen muscle. A 30min treatment is the equivalent of either 20,000 sit ups or 20,000 squats while laying down. EmSculpt® uses HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to cause supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable from voluntary contractions to build muscle. Clinical studies have shown that in addition to growing bigger muscles, this revolutionary technology also helps to reduce fat in the treatment area. EmSculpt® is the first procedure to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their body. EmSculpt® also is the world’s first non-invasive buttock toning procedure.
HOW DOES EMSCULPT WORK?
EmSculpt® is the first FDA-cleared treatment shown to simultaneously build muscle and reduce the layer of excess fat covering these muscles, making for a leaner appearance. The EmSculpt® device directs highly-focused electromagnetic energy to the target area, which forces muscles to contract in a way that is not possible through exercise alone (20,000 contractions in 30 minutes). This electromagnetic field stimulates muscle contractions to promote muscle growth and fat loss. EmSculpt®, contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. These results are backed by several clinical studies, showing fat loss as well as defined and sculpted muscles to the abdomen and buttocks following a series of 4 treatments. If you’ve been struggling to see tone and definition from your workouts this is a great procedure for you!
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
EmSculpt® is presently FDA-cleared for treating the stomach, legs, arms and buttocks. This revolutionary technology can help tighten your core and lift your booty.
EmSculpt®, can also improve DIASTASIS RECTI without surgery.
Pregnancy can really do a number on your abs, often causing the muscles in your abdomen to separate in a condition called Diastasis Recti. Until now, the only way to repair these muscles has been to surgically reattach them (performed during a tummy tuck procedure). EmSculpt® helps to target muscles in a way you can’t with exercise alone, and that helps to improve this condition. EmSculpt® is completely non-invasive, meaning there’s no needles, no surgery, no numbing, and no downtime. This makes it the perfect treatment for busy moms who are suffering from abdominal muscle separation.
WHO ARE GOOD CANDIDATES FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
Adults in good shape who desire more definition of their abs or lifting of the buttocks are ideal candidates. EmSculpt is well-suited for those who work out but just can’t seem to get a six-pack or a perky derriere. Good candidates are already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
WHO ARE NOT CANDIDATES FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
Patients with significant fat stores may not be ideal candidates for EmSculpt®. The HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to power EmSculpt® penetrates to about 7 cm. Those with thicker fat stores may not get as significant of muscle contraction, resulting in less results following treatment. It may be helpful to first reduce the fat volume with another noninvasive fat reduction technology offered at Tomorrow’ Wellness Center; CoolSculpting® and/or, VANQUISH®.
Pregnant and nursing females should not undergo treatment with EmSculpt®.
Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner, or cramping is increased/intensified with EmSculpt® treatments, therefore we recommend not undergoing treatment during this time of the month.
Possible contraindications to treatment include the following:
- Metal or electronic implants in the treatment area
- Cardiac pacemakers
- Implanted defibrillators
- Implanted neurostimulators
- Drug pumps
- Malignant tumor
- Hemorrhagic conditions
- Recent surgical procedures
IS FAT LOSS AND INCREASED MUSCLE MASS PERMANENT FOLLOWING EmSculpt®?
Fat cells destroyed by increased fat metabolism with EmSculpt® is permanent. However, weight gain causes remaining fat cells to grow, leading to possible loss of effect.
Muscle gain is not permanent, but likely lasts 6 months or longer. Recent studies suggest the muscle development may last up to a year. Periodic EmSculpt® treatments can help maintain the muscle tone achieved from an initial series of treatments.
HOW LONG DOES A NON-SURGICAL EmSculpt® BUTT LIFT LAST?
Results from a non-surgical butt lift is long-lasting. However, weight fluctuations, aging, and pregnancy can all take a toll on the body and may alter the results of your buttock lift. The best way to maintain long-term results is to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. Results from any sort of muscle toning or building treatment can be maintained with regular exercise and touch up treatments with EmSculpt®. Butt lifting and building procedures are being talked about everywhere right now, but many women don’t realize that they don’t actually want a bigger butt, they just want a firmer, lifted and more toned butt. Just one EmSculpt® treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 squats, which we know is considered to be the best exercise to do for building a perkier, sculpted butt.
HOW DOES EMSCULPT® COMPARE TO OTHER METHODS OF FAT REDUCTION SUCH AS LIPOSUCTION, CoolSculpting OR VANQUISH.
EmSculpt® is a non-surgical approach to obtaining high-definition abs and butt lifting. It has no downtime or pain but requires a series of treatments and periodic maintenance. E The main advantage EmSculpt® has over CoolSculpting and VANQUISH is the ability to tone muscle and induce fat reduction in targeted areas.
Liposuction is the gold standard of surgical fat removal. It’s intended for areas of unwanted fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise.
Cryolipolysis, often termed, “CoolSculpting,” is a method of non-invasive fat removal that freezes fat, causing fat cell death and elimination. CoolSculpting is non-invasive and can reduce unwanted fat. However, cryolipolysis is a form of spot treatment for fat reduction. Larger areas such as the abdomen often require multiple applications, with each session lasting 35 minutes.
Vanquish® uses heat to lead to the permanent removal of unwanted fat. Vanquish treatments generally involves 6-8 treatments lasting 45minutes, spaced about 7-14 days apart. It’s intended for individuals who struggle with stubborn areas of fat deposition, resistant to dietary and exercise measures. It’s excellent at “de-bulking” or non-invasively reducing the abdomen and flanks simultaneously. It’s not a substitute for liposuction, which allows a greater volume of fat removal. However, for some patients who are not candidates for CoolSculpting, or who do not wish to undergo surgery, Vanquish may be a good treatment option.
DOES THE EmSculpt® PROCEDURE CAUSE WEIGHT LOSS?
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE? DOES IT HURT?
EmSculpt® is not painful, it simply feels like a series of strong muscle contractions. Thinner patients may feel EmSculpt® more, and decreased energies may be used during treatment. Many patients tend to instinctively smile or laugh during the first few minutes, then the body adapts to the rhythm of muscle contractions and it’s easily tolerated.
HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY EmSculpt® TREATMENTS?
Most patients report seeing changes to their body before they’ve even completed their treatment rounds with EmSculpt® – that’s within the first 2 weeks. The best results were proven during the clinical trials to be seen about 4 weeks after the last treatment (which is 6 weeks from the start date, in total). In the studies, the roughly 16% increase in muscle mass and 19% reduction in fat were measured 2 months after the 4th treatment.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS EmSculpt®?
EmSculpt has been proven effective through seven independent, multi-center studies. These studies have shown that the average increase of muscle mass is 16%, the average fat reduction is 19% and the average patient satisfaction is 96% when it comes to the EmSculpt® treatment. EmSculpt is incredibly effective and results can be maintained with a proper diet and regular exercise. Patients can also do “touch-up” treatments at intervals discussed with Dr. Hernberg.
Tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies utilizing all four established methods of evaluation, including MRI, CT and Ultrasound, EmSculpt® delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
- 19% reduction of fat
- 4 cm (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
- 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
- 96% patient satisfaction
IS EmSculpt® A “TENS” device?
No, but it is the closest analogy to HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to power EmSculpt®. TENS, (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) devices, produce small amounts of battery-powered electrical energy to stimulate muscle contraction. TENS devices are used to treat pain disorders.
EmSculpt®, on the other hand, is an extremely powerful device measured in Tesla, a measurement of magnetic induction often used to describe MRI imaging. EmSculpt® is capable of producing supraphysiologic contraction of muscles and is much more powerful than a TENS device.
IS THERE DOWNTIME? WILL I NEED TO TAKE TIME OFF FROM WORK OR SOCIAL ACTIVITIES?
WHAT IS THE PREPARATION FOR EmSculpt®?
No preparation is required prior to EmSculpt® treatment. As your muscles in the treatment area will be strongly contracting, prepare as you would prior to a rigorous strength training session at the gym. Empty your bladder and avoid a full meal immediately prior to treatment.
HOW MANNY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED FOR BEST RESULTS?
At TWC, we recommend patients to complete four treatments spread out over a two-week period. Dr. Hernberg will develop an individual treatment plan along with treatment quotes during your free consultation. Results achieved from EmSculpt® treatments can be maintained with additional treatments along with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
HOW OFTEN CAN I GET EmSculpt®?
No studies have been done to show what is the best way to obtain optimal results. Muscles will always need conditioning to stay toned. EmSculpt® treatments can be continued past four sessions for even more noticeable results. Dr. Hernberg will discuss the benefits of touch up treatments at the time of your free consultation.
WILL IT HURT? WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
You will feel your muscles contracting, but you won’t be exerting effort. Most patients say this feels weird, but it’s not painful (you shouldn’t expect to feel a “zap” of the energy or anything like that).
IS EmSculpt® SAFE? ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
HOW MUCH DOES EmSculpt® COST?
Cost depends on the size and location of treatment and the number of cycles needed to realize your ideal results. Dr. Hernberg will discuss prices in detail during your complimentary consultation. If you decide noninvasive body contouring is the right option for you, we will customize a treatment plan that works for your budget.
