The Emsculpt® treatment uses Highly Focused Electro Magnetic (HIFEM) energy to create supramaximal contractions, which are essentially strong contractions, in a specific muscle area. Just one Emsculpt® treatment equates to roughly 20,000 squats or 20,000 crunches. This ultimately results in muscle growth, toning, and strengthening.
Emsculpt® technology is continuously raising the bar when it comes to aesthetics and non-invasive body shaping. Emsculpt® is now FDA cleared for Emsculpt® to strengthen, firm and tone the arms with its newly unveiled Small Contour Applicators. Adding to the also ready existing treatments for the abdomen and buttocks, the new Small Contour Applicator brings the unmatched Emsculpt® results to even more important muscle groups. This makes it the only non-invasive treatment that has been FDA cleared to tone and strengthen the arms and calves.
It can be hard to gain muscles in the arms – even if you have spent months doing weight training designed specifically for this area. Emsculpt® can now be used to build up muscles in the biceps and triceps. The applicators for the biceps and triceps have a somewhat different shape from the body applicators. They are smaller and there are straps used to keep the applicators in place.
There have been extensive trials with the Small Contour Applicator to help demonstrate its success for treating these new areas of the body. Patients will need to do four 20-minute treatments, over two weeks. The bicep and tricep muscles were shown to increase in muscle mass two weeks after the fourth treatment, as well as total fat reduction in the arms. This is the shortest procedure currently available for non-invasive muscle strengthening.

High intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) technology induces maximum muscle contractions not achievable by voluntary action. When exposed to these intense contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to these extreme conditions.
During normal voluntary muscle contractions, the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus due to the central nervous system’s inability to signal another impulse while the previous one is still in action. Emsculpt® generates impulses that are independent of brain function, and at such a rapid frequency that doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Under normal conditions, the highest amount of tension that could be developed and held physiologically is called maximal voluntary contraction (MVC). Usually, it lasts only for a split second. Contractions with a tension higher than MVC are defined as supramaximal.
