Q&A: The Things You Should Know About Emszero

What is Emszero? Emszero is a new device in body-contouring. It is the CE-cleared energy device approved to burn fat and build muscle mass. Emszero contracts muscles beyond what is possible through voluntary effort, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat reduction. The process works by directing highly focused electromagnetic energy to the area, forcing the muscles to contract to 100% and holding it there for up to six seconds. The average person, no matter how strong, can only contract their muscles to their 30-35% capacity for a fraction of a second. In response to these contractions, the muscle reconstructs itself, and fat cells in the area are eliminated.

What is Emszero recovery like? Emszero is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. The treatment is a great option for many patients because they don’t have to prep for treatment or follow any kind of post-care plan. Some patients experience mild soreness, but nothing as intense as what you would feel from a traditional workout.

Are there any risks? Emszero has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent US-based clinical studies. In fact, on average, the following results were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients: • 19% reduction of fat • 4 cm (~1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference • 16% increase in muscle mass • 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti) • 5x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment) • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks • 96% patient satisfaction

There are a few contraindications that our team will go through with you during a consultation. The main risk is metal implants in the body near the treatment site.

How is Emszero different from CoolSculpting? Results from these 2 treatments are pretty different, and hard to compare. CoolSculpting is used to target stubborn fat, where Emszero is used to build and tone muscle. Patients looking for a more toned look (and who are already fairly lean) are great Emszero candidates. If patients want to reduce “pinchable” rolls of fat then they will likely be a better candidate for CoolSculpting. Most patients fall somewhere in between these two extremes, and that’s where the consultation process helps to determine which treatment is the better option.

Does Emszero hurt? No! Emszero does not cause pain or discomfort. Patients usually say they feel a “pulling” sensation. Our aestheticians have total control of the treatment intensity, so patients are always treated at a level that is comfortable to them.

What’s an Emszero treatment like? At the first appointment, patients will have photos of the treatment area taken so that we are able to benchmark progress. We have treatment rooms equipped with a TV and healthy snacks to make the experience more comfortable. The first step is securing the applicator to the treatment area, then the process begins! Each treatment takes 20-40 minutes depending on the area.

When will I see results? You will begin to feel results immediately after treatment. These will be small changes, like posture improvements or decreased fatigue during exercise. Most patients are noticing visible results around three months post-treatment, and maintain results with a maintenance plan. Clinical studies have shown that results can continue to improve for up to six months.

How long will Emszero results last? If you work out once and never go back to the gym, those muscles atrophy, and the same is true for muscle mass gained by Emszero. You can expect to keep your results for six months to a year, but it is recommended that you keep these results up with a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise. We also have special maintenance pricing after you finish your package so you can come in to maintain results.

Is Emszero suitable for all ages and body types?

Emszero is designed for adults seeking muscle definition and fat reduction. However, it’s always recommended to consult with a specialist to determine if you’re an ideal candidate based on your age, health, and body type.


Can I combine Emszero treatments with other body-contouring procedures?

Absolutely! Many patients choose to combine Emszero with other treatments for optimal results. For instance, combining fat reduction treatments with Emszero can provide both slimming and muscle-toning benefits. However, it’s essential to discuss your goals with your aesthetician to ensure the combination is safe and effective.


How many Emszero sessions will I need?

The number of sessions varies depending on individual goals and current physique. On average, most patients undergo 4 sessions, spaced a few days apart. However, during your consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be crafted to meet your specific needs.


Are there any side effects to be aware of post-treatment?

While Emszero is non-invasive and generally safe, some patients report feeling a tingling sensation or muscle soreness similar to what one might experience after an intense workout. These sensations are temporary and usually subside within a day or two.


Can Emszero help with post-pregnancy body recovery?

Yes, many new mothers turn to Emszero to help restore abdominal muscle tone and reduce diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation) post-pregnancy. As always, it’s crucial to consult with a professional to ensure it’s the right treatment for post-pregnancy recovery.

How does Emszero compare to traditional weightlifting or gym exercises?

Emszero stands out from traditional gym workouts due to its ability to induce super-maximal muscle contractions. While weightlifting and exercises can certainly help you tone and strengthen muscles, they generally only allow for voluntary muscle contractions. Emszero, on the other hand, stimulates muscles to contract beyond voluntary limits, potentially offering more significant toning and muscle-building benefits. Think of it as an intense, super-charged workout for your muscles, but without the strain on joints or the need for weights.


Is there a specific diet or regimen I should follow while undergoing Emszero treatments?

While Emszero treatments can enhance muscle tone and reduce fat, they’re most effective when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Consuming a protein-rich diet can support muscle growth, and staying hydrated can aid in flushing out toxins. It’s not a strict requirement, but for maximum results, it’s advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle alongside your treatments.


Can Emszero assist in improving athletic performance?

Absolutely. Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts use Emszero to complement their training routines. By inducing stronger muscle contractions, Emszero can potentially help increase muscle strength and endurance, which can be beneficial for performance in various sports and activities.


Is Emszero suitable for post-injury or post-surgery rehabilitation?

While Emszero is primarily designed for body contouring, its muscle-stimulating properties can be beneficial for rehabilitation purposes. It can assist in muscle strengthening without putting undue stress on the joints or the injured area. However, it’s essential to consult with your healthcare provider or physiotherapist before undergoing treatments post-injury or surgery.


How does Emszero affect skin quality?

While the primary purpose of Emszero is muscle toning and fat reduction, the contractions can also promote increased blood flow to the treated areas. This can lead to improved skin texture and tightness over time. However, if skin tightening is your primary concern, it’s best to discuss this with your aesthetician to determine the most suitable treatment.


Are there any specific areas of the body Emszero can’t treat?

Emszero is versatile and can treat various areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs. However, it’s not suitable for areas with minimal muscle mass, like the neck or hands. Always discuss your treatment goals with a specialist to ensure the chosen area is appropriate for Emszero.


How soon after childbirth can I consider Emszero treatments?

Many women are keen to regain their pre-pregnancy physique after giving birth. While Emszero can be beneficial in restoring muscle tone, it’s generally recommended to wait at least six months postpartum or after you’ve stopped breastfeeding. Always consult with your doctor to determine the best timeline for you.


Can Emszero help individuals with medical conditions related to muscle weakness?

Emszero’s muscle-stimulating properties might benefit those with certain muscle-related conditions. However, it’s crucial to consult with a medical professional to determine if Emszero is suitable and safe for your specific condition.


Does body fat percentage impact Emszero’s effectiveness?

Emszero is designed to both reduce fat and build muscle. While individuals with a lower body fat percentage might see muscle toning results quicker, those with a higher body fat percentage can still benefit from the fat-reducing properties of the treatment. A consultation will help tailor the treatment to your specific needs and goals.


Is there any special care required for the machine?

As a patient, you won’t need to worry about machine maintenance. However, clinics and aestheticians should regularly inspect and clean the Emszero device according to the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure safety and effectiveness.
