Aesthetic device manufacturer BTL Aesthetics has released its latest non-invasive body sculpting device, the EMsculpt.
According to BTL Aesthetics, the device targets both muscle and fat, which aims to bring a new technology to the aesthetic specialty. The manufacturer claims the EMsculpt relies on high intensity focused electromagnetic field (HIFEM) energy to induce muscle contractions and kill fat cells.
BTL Aesthetics states that the device has been cleared by the FDA for the improvement of abdominal tone and strengthening of the abdominal muscles. The HIFEM technology aims to penetrate the skin to impact fat, as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to strengthen and build muscle and breakdown fat.
Aesthetic practitioner Dr Rosh Ravindran was one of four practitioners in the UK who were specifically chosen to support the launch as KOLs for the device. He said, “The current approach to body shaping and contouring is through fat cell death, either through freezing or other energy-based modalities. The EMsculpt is the first device of its kind that addresses not only fat loss but abdominal contouring through muscle tone.”
