Dr. Kristina McAteer, owner and Medical Director of the new Rhode Island medspa, Oceanside Aesthetics and Wellness, introduces a groundbreaking new approach to sculpting the abdomen with Emsculpt – the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure in Rhode Island that simultaneously addresses both Muscle and Fat. Bringing an entirely new technology to the category, Emsculpt utilizes HIFEM® energy to induce powerful muscle contractions which builds muscles and burns fat. FDA-cleared for the improvement of abdominal tone and strengthening of the abdominal muscles, Emsculpt helps patients achieve next-level, contouring results.
“The current approach to body shaping is through circumferential reduction; however, overall body contour is affected by muscle structure as well,” shared Dr. McAteer. “Emsculpt goes beyond waist line reduction to address abdominal contouring through muscle tone, so I’m thrilled to now offer this combination to my patients” added Dr. McAteer
Muscles represent about 35% of the human body, but existing aesthetic treatments only address fat. Emsculpt introduces a first of its kind application of a unique magnetic field. HIFEM technology penetrates through skin to impact fat, as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also reduce fat. This is the ONLY technology that builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
Tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies (1,2,3,4,5) utilizing all four established methods of evaluation including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Histology, Emsculpt delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
For optimal results, Dr. McAteer recommends four 30-minute treatment sessions over the course of a two-week period. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over a 6-month time period.
