What is EMS Max?
EMS Max is a therapy that has gained popularity in recent years. Essentially, thousands of involuntary muscular contractions would result in an increase in muscle tissue, according to the original treatment. This approach was dubbed EMS, or ‘Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation.’ It changes and improves through time, just like other Aesthetic procedures and technology in general.
The FDA has approved EMS Max, which combines two technologies (EMS and EMT) to enhance muscle cell volume (contractile proteins and tissue fibres) while also lowering body fat.
How does it work?
HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology, which is non-invasive, causes supramaximal muscular contractions that are stronger and faster than voluntary exercise. The forceful contractions cause a metabolic shift in the underlying fat, which causes a percentage of fat cells to be destroyed. In seven published investigations, there was a 25% increase in muscle thickness and a 30% decrease in fat thickness in the abdomen. The diastasis recti—the separation between the left and right abdominal muscles that is stretched by pregnancy—was also reduced by nearly 11% in the studies.
Two independent currents are functioning at different depths at the same time, one on the subcutaneous fat layer and the other on the deep muscle tissue layer. The electromagnetic field generates motor neuron pulses in 100% of the targeted muscle cells and tissue fibres. Thousands of involuntary contractions occur in minutes, resulting in significant muscle hypertrophy (development). In the microsecond intervals between electromagnetic contractions, the alternate frequencies work on the subcutaneous fat layer, producing apoptosis in adipose tissue within each cell (death of each cell).
As a result, the volume of muscle cells increases, and body fat in the targeted area decreases. It’s also worth mentioning that your metabolism can alter, and the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate will almost likely be.
Every customer who has this procedure gets a thorough InBody 270 assessment, which breaks down fat and muscle tissue into segments and provides a clear indication of the before and after results.
What is the duration of an EMS Max session?
Sessions last about 30–40 minutes per area(s); four pad placements can be done at once, so stomach and quadriceps, or bum and hamstrings, can all be done in this period. When you start treatment, you will be advised on how many sessions you’ll need to get the results you want.
Will I be able to see a change after just one session?
Yes, in most circumstances, just as you would feel and observe visible differences following a resistance workout session. Only this method works to a much deeper level of muscle tissue in a painless but intensive manner; after four sessions, the difference in localised muscle and body fat will be seen throughout the day (not just immediately after). After 6–8 sessions, you will notice and feel the difference every day for around 6 months.
Why would I choose to have EMS Max?
If you wish to see a visible reduction in body fat on your arms, thighs, bottom, or stomach area, you might want to try EMSCULPT. Alternatively, if you are interested in wanting to gain muscle mass while losing fat in certain regions.
What does the treatment feel like?
Your muscles are subjected to a rapid series of contractions every few minutes for a total of 30 – 40 minutes during the EMSCULPT process, which feels like an intense exercise. The treatment has numerous settings so that an individual’s comfort limit can be determined and the intensity can be maintained for the duration. During the therapy, there is also a prickling feeling.
Is there any down time to this treatment?
EMSCULPT is a non-invasive procedure that requires no recovery time, preparation, or downtime before or after treatment.
What is the duration of the results?
Improved muscular tone lasts at least 6 months, and if you have monthly top us sessions, it lasts even longer. After your treatment, try to focus on maintaining a healthy diet and getting enough of exercise. Due to fat cell destruction and the complexity of fat cell apoptosis, fat loss in the targeted area is expected to be long-term. In short, while the treatment is still relatively new, no evidence has been given to prove that the cells can reinflate or resurface. It’s very likely that fat cells won’t return in the treated area, but this isn’t a promise, it’s just something to consider. As a result, unlike Cryotherapy, it is not being touted as “permanent fat removal.”
Is EMS Max suitable for me?
The EMS Max method is beneficial to anyone who wants to strengthen and define their stomach, arms, buttocks, hamstrings, quads, or inner thigh muscles. The ideal candidates are in a healthy weight range (60-90 kg for women, 80-110 kg for men), exercise other than walking, and maintain a healthy and balanced diet.
What makes me a non-suitable candidate for EMS Max?
Anyone who matches the following criteria is ineligible for treatment:
- Breastfeeding or pregnancy
- A pacemaker for the heart, a defibrillator, an implanted neurostimulator, a medication pump, or an electronic implanted device
- Metal implants: metal rods, pins, plates, metal IUDs, or orthopaedic implants/joints
- Insufficiency of the lungs, heart problems, epilepsy, or active cancer
- Bleeding disorder (i.e. blood clotting) or taking blood thinners
- History of hernia repair with mesh, or any recent surgical operation in the region
- You are under the age of 18 years
