Nonsurgical Body Contouring (muscle stimulation)
Non-surgical body contouring is any cosmetic procedure that is non-invasive and does not require the patient to undergo surgery to achieve a slimmer, contoured, and defined body.
Non-surgical body contouring is recommended for patients who are not looking to lose weight. Instead, it's ideal for people who have achieved their target weight but are looking to get rid of stubborn areas of fat and excess skin that can sometimes be resistant to diet and exercise.
While most popular non-surgical body contouring treatments target fat cells—such as CoolSculpting, laser, and RF therapies—an emerging type of treatment known as Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation (EMMS) targets your muscles.
How does Non-surgical Body Contouring Work?
A relatively new approach to body contouring, electromagnetic muscle stimulation makes use of electromagnetic current to tone the muscles in your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. A non-invasive form of treatment, this form of non-surgical body contouring is suitable for those looking to improve their muscle tone and performance in the gym or athletic settings.
The contraction of muscles results in a contoured physique and stronger muscles in the target area. In addition, this treatment also kick-starts your body's own fat-reducing mechanisms, leading to a gradual loss of fat after treatment as well.
Is Non-surgical Body Contouring Right For You?
Electromagnetic muscle stimulation is ideal for patients looking to improve their muscle tone, especially in the abdomen and gluteal areas. This cosmetic procedure can be individualized to your body and your overall goals for wellness.
Non-surgical body contouring that makes use of electromagnetic energy is safe and effective for improving your body's aesthetics and muscle definition. It's also relatively pain-free and a non-invasive technique with results in as little as four weeks post initial treatment.
