Imagine doing 20 000 sit-ups in a 30minute session toning the muscle and burning fat. Emsculpt and Exilis is noninvasive body contouring devices, in a class of their own.
Advances in technology means that patients now have a range of options available when it comes to body sculpting, cellulite reduction, muscle toning, skin tightening, and fat reduction or fat elimination that are entirely non-invasive. They also have no downtime at all.
Electromagnetic technology for muscle toning and fat burning
Emsculpt is a breakthrough device that has been making massive waves globally over the last few months (and is now available in South Africa) which offers non-invasive body contouring to eliminate fat and build muscle.
With Emsculpt – the first FDA-cleared energy device approved to burn fat and build muscle – high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology triggers rapid muscle contractions in the treatment region. During a half-hour procedure, you may experience up to 20,000 muscle contractions, a total that is significantly greater than can be achieved during exercise. These muscle contractions stimulate a process that eliminates fat and builds muscle in the treatment region and will also provide skin tightening and lifting results that can help reduce cellulite.
Emsculpt can be used to treat the abdomen, buttocks, biceps, triceps, calf-muscles, and the benefits include short painless treatments with no recovery or down-time and dramatic body sculpting results.
Radiofrequency and ultrasound energy waves for slimming and skin tightening
Exilis is another technologically advanced treatment that has no-downtime, no pain, and is an in-office procedure used for both combined skin tightening and non-invasive fat removal and body contouring.
Multi-award winning, FDA approved with proven clinical results, Exilis is used to tone skin and improve skin texture while reducing fat, firming skin, reducing wrinkles and it also gets rid of cellulite. It is a head-to-toe treatment using radiofrequency technology. Exilis is completed as a series of sessions and delivers radiofrequency and ultrasound energy waves as heat below the surface of the skin, safely destroying fat cells, firming skin, and triggering collagen production. Popular areas include saddle bags, stomach, love handles, thighs, face, and intimate areas.
Exilis can also be used for facial rejuvenation. The energy used during treatment heats the deeper layers of the skin causing contractions of the collagen fibres and new collagen synthesis. While not a replacement for a neck lift or a facelift, Exilis can provide a nice alternative for those not seeking a surgical solution, or as a supplemental treatment following facial surgery.
There are many reasons why patients choose medical intervention to help shape their bodies and the new technologies make it easier, safer, and more affordable to do. Likewise, the signs of ageing are unavoidable, but the new technologies available now mean that ageing can be effectively and speedily combatted.
