EMSCULPT CALVES

Emsculpt calves

Emsculpt calves

Calf muscles are notorious for resisting strength training exercises. That’s why many people opt to Emsculpt their calves. Emsculpt is a revolutionary bodybuilding treatment. And with it, men and women can build bigger, stronger, more sculpted calves in as little as 30-minutes.

The Problem with Calves

When surveyed, bodybuilders listed calves as the most challenging muscle group to develop. And they’re right. But why? First, most people believe that the shape and size of your calf muscles are genetically determined. Suppose you are born with calf muscles that consist predominately of fast twitch muscle fibers. In that case, you may have more prominent, sculpted calves. Suppose you’re born with calves that are predominately slow-twitch muscle fibers (which possess half of the growth potential as fast-twitch fibers.) Then your calves may be smaller than you’d like and hard to develop.

Physiology also plays a role. Calf muscles aren’t designed to respond to a workout like the muscles of the upper leg. For example, a muscle in the calf, the soleus, posses half the ability to synthesize muscle tissue as the quadriceps.

Lastly, because the calf muscles work out every time you walk, they are already developed. To make them stronger and more sculpted requires a lot of tension. This tension is hard to create in the gym.

Emsculpting Calves

Emsculpt uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle tissues. During the procedure, an applicator is positioned over the targeted muscle group. The applicator delivers the electromagnetic energy into the muscle tissue below. When you Emsculpt calves, you induce 20,000 contractions in the calf muscles. These contractions are far more potent than the ones you create at the gym with calf raises.

The Small Applicator

When first introduced to the public in 2018, Emsculpt was FDA cleared for the building, strengthening, and firming of the abdomen and buttocks. According to BTL, the makers of Emsculpt, the “Small Contour Applicator [was developed] to deliver targeted treatment for smaller muscle groups, including the arms and calves.”

The smaller applicator is equipped with a higher energy field and an ergonomic half-pipe design. This proprietary technology contours to the calf and isolates the applicator’s energy to penetrate only the calf muscles. This avoids activating nearby antagonist muscle and ensures a more intense calf workout.

VITAMIN C

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods.Vitamin C is also involved in protein metabolism [1,2].

  • Collagen is an essential component of connective tissue, which plays a vital role in wound healing.
  • Vitamin C is also an important physiological antioxidant [3] and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, including alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) [4].
  • Ongoing research is examining whether vitamin C, by limiting the damaging effects of free radicals through its antioxidant activity, might help prevent or delay the development of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases in which oxidative stress plays a causal role.
  • Vitamin C plays an important role in immune function [4] and improves the absorption of nonheme iron [5], the form of iron present in plantbased foods.
  • Insufficient vitamin C intake causes scurvy, which is characterized by fatigue or lassitude, widespread connective tissue weakness, and capillary fragility [1,2,4,6-9].

WOUND HEALING

The major function of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in wound healing is assisting in the formation of collagen, the most important protein of connective tissue. Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin found in water-filled foods, dissolves in water and is transported in the bloodstream.

Excess amounts are excreted in the urine; however, since the body does not store vitamin C, food sources should be consumed on a regular basis. Vitamin C deficiency is manifested by decreased collagen synthesis, which can result in delayed healing and capillary fragility. Wounds may fail to heal because scar tissue doesn’t form. Ascorbic acid deficiency is also associated with impaired immune function, which can decrease the ability to fight infection.

Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to increase tensile strength and collagen synthesis by assisting in the hydroxylation of lysine and proline, major constituents of collagen.

Groups at Risk of Vitamin C Inadequacy

Smokers and passive “smokers”

Studies consistently show that smokers have lower plasma and leukocyte vitamin C levels than nonsmokers, due in part to increased oxidative stress [8]. For this reason, the IOM concluded that smokers need 35 mg more vitamin C per day than nonsmokers [8]. Exposure to secondhand smoke also decreases vitamin C levels. Although the IOM was unable to establish a specific vitamin C requirement for nonsmokers who are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke, these individuals should ensure that they meet the RDA for vitamin C [4,8].

Infants fed evaporated or boiled milk

Most infants in developed countries are fed breastmilk and/or infant formula, both of which supply adequate amounts of vitamin C [8,16]. For many reasons, feeding infants evaporated or boiled cow’s milk is not recommended. This practice can cause vitamin C deficiency because cow’s milk naturally has very little vitamin C and heat can destroy vitamin C [6,12].

Individuals with limited food variety

Although fruits and vegetables are the best sources of vitamin C, many other foods have small amounts of this nutrient. Thus, through a varied diet, most people should be able to meet the vitamin C RDA or at least obtain enough to prevent scurvy. People who have limited food variety— including some elderly, indigent individuals who prepare their own food; people who abuse alcohol or drugs; food faddists; people with mental illness; and, occasionally, children—might not obtain sufficient vitamin C [4,6-9,11].

People with malabsorption and certain chronic diseases

Some medical conditions can reduce the absorption of vitamin C and/or increase the amount needed by the body. People with severe intestinal malabsorption or cachexia and some cancer patients might be at increased risk of vitamin C inadequacy [29]. Low vitamin C concentrations can also occur in patients with end-stage renal disease on chronic hemodialysis [30].

Vitamin C and Health

Due to its function as an antioxidant and its role in immune function, vitamin C has been promoted as a means to help prevent and/or treat numerous health conditions. This section focuses on four diseases and disorders in which vitamin C might play a role: cancer (including prevention and treatment), cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, and the common cold.

Cancer prevention

Most case-control studies have found an inverse association between dietary vitamin C intake and cancers of the lung, breast, colon or rectum, stomach, oral cavity, larynx or pharynx, and esophagus [2,4]. Plasma concentrations of vitamin C are also lower in people with cancer than controls [2].

Cancer treatment

Oral administration of vitamin C, even of very large doses, can raise plasma vitamin C concentrations to a maximum of only 220 micromol/L, whereas IV administration can produce plasma concentrations as high as 26,000 micromol/L [49,50]. Concentrations of this magnitude are selectively cytotoxic to tumor cells in vitro [1,69]. Research in mice suggests that pharmacologic doses of IV vitamin C might show promise in treating otherwise difficult-to-treat tumors [51]. A high concentration of vitamin C may act as a pro-oxidant and generate hydrogen peroxide that has selective toxicity toward cancer cells [51-53]. Based on these findings and a few case reports of patients with advanced cancers who had remarkably long survival times following administration of high-dose IV vitamin C, some researchers support reassessment of the use of high-dose IV vitamin C as a drug to treat cancer [3,49,51,54].

Cardiovascular disease

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce monocyte adherence to the endothelium, improve endothelium-dependent nitric oxide production and vasodilation, and reduce vascular smooth-muscle-cell apoptosis, which prevents plaque instability in atherosclerosis [2,59].

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts

AMD and cataracts are two of the leading causes of vision loss in older individuals. Oxidative stress might contribute to the etiology of both conditions. Thus, researchers have hypothesized that vitamin C and other antioxidants play a role in the development and/or treatment of these diseases. High dietary intakes of vitamin C and higher plasma ascorbate concentrations have been associated with a lower risk of cataract formation in some studies [2,4].

The Common Cold

In trials involving marathon runners, skiers, and soldiers exposed to extreme physical exercise and/or cold environments, prophylactic use of vitamin C in doses ranging from 250 mg/day to 1 g/day reduced cold incidence by 50%. In the general population, use of prophylactic vitamin C modestly reduced cold duration by 8% in adults and 14% in children. When taken after the onset of cold symptoms, vitamin C did not affect cold duration or symptom severity. Overall, the evidence to date suggests that regular intakes of vitamin C at doses of at least 200 mg/day do not reduce the incidence of the common cold in the general population, but such intakes might be helpful in people exposed to extreme physical exercise or cold environments and those with marginal vitamin C status, such as the elderly and chronic smokers [83-85]. The use of vitamin C supplements might shorten the duration of the common cold and ameliorate symptom severity in the general population [82,85], possibly due to the anti-histamine effect of high-dose vitamin C [86]. However, taking vitamin C after the onset of cold symptoms does not appear to be beneficial [83].

Health Risks from Excessive Vitamin C

Vitamin C has low toxicity and is not believed to cause serious adverse effects at high intakes [8]. The most common complaints are:

  • diarrhea
  • nausea
  • abdominal cramps
  • and other gastrointestinal disturbances due to the osmotic effect of unabsorbed vitamin C in the gastrointestinal tract [4,8].

CELLULITE REMOVAL: REJUVENATE DIMPLED SKIN

cellulite removal

Cellulite Removal: Rejuvenate Dimpled Skin

Cellulite removal with Emtone is a body contouring treatment that significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite. The novel treatment pairs dual technologies that target the several causative factors of cellulite. Learn how you can remove cellulite and rejuvenate your appearance with smoother, younger-looking skin.

See Emtone before and after results >>

WHAT CAUSES CELLULITE?

The skin consists of layers. The lowest layer of subcutaneous fat is held in place by the overlying tissue layer known as the dermis. The dermis consists of a matrix of tightly woven fibers. These connective strands eventually break down and stretch out. This allows the underlying fat to protrude through the fibers, causing a rippled appearance on the skin’s top layer.

The matrix of connective tissues that holds subcutaneous fat degrades for several reasons. This includes:

  • The break down of connective proteins such as collagen and elastin as we age
  • the enlargement of fat cells
  • the loss of skin elasticity
  • fluid retention and the build-up of metabolic waste due to poor circulation.

HOW DOES EMTONE WORK?

Emtone is treatment that reduces cellulite. The machine combines two technologies to address the various causes of cellulite. Employing acoustic wave energy with Radiofrequency (RF), the machine penetrates the layers of skin with calibrated energy. The thermal heating of the tissue initiates a controlled healing response. The skin rejuvenates itself by increasing circulation, decreasing fat cells, and flushing metabolic waste.

COMMON TREATMENT AREAS

Emtone can remove cellulite from nearly anywhere on the body. Popular treatment areas include:

  • The stomach
  • The thighs
  • The buttock
  • The upper arms
  • The back

THE TREATMENT

Cellulite removal treatments with Emtone takes 20 minutes. The procedure is virtually painless. Furthermore, Emtone requires no downtime. Clients may go about their normal activities immediately after their treatment.

THE RESULTS

Reduction in cellulite may be visible after a single treatment. However, most individuals require four treatments for optimal results. Each treatment is typically scheduled one to two weeks apart. Results may begin to manifest in as little as a week after treatment.  As with any cosmetic procedure, individual experiences may vary. *

Don’t let cellulite keep you from loving the skin you’re in. Cellulite removal is possible. Learn more about Emtone by scheduling a complimentary consultation with Body Morph MD.

The balloon, however, is only temporary. After six months, the patient will have the balloon removed. During those six months, the patient will work hand-in-hand with a team of people.

The balloon remains in the stomach for six months. Patients feel fuller sooner and longer, helping them to eat less. During this time, the patient loses a large amount of weight due to the sudden change in eating habits

After six months, the balloon is removed the same way it went into the stomach. Once removed, the patient continues to receive full support from the team, helping them continue a successful weight loss journey.

NON-SURGICAL BUTT LIFT WITH EMSCULPT

non-surgical butt lift

Non-Surgical Butt Lift with Emsculpt

As curvy bodies and voluptuous backsides become more popular, consumer demands for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedures have skyrocketed. Surgical butt enhancements, however, come with significant risks, pain, and long recovery periods. With Emsculpt, people can enjoy a non-surgical butt lift option that is safe, painless, and effective. This is the first FDA cleared treatment to lift, firm, and shape the butt without fillers or surgery. Emsculpt enhances your booty naturally. Treatments stimulate the glutes to improve tone and muscle mass for a more plump, shapely bum.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt is an FDA cleared procedure that firms and tones the butt. This non-surgical butt lift option uses advanced technology to stimulate muscle contractions. Each treatment uses HIFEM or High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy.

During your treatment, the FIFEM energy penetrates the glutes to stimulate the muscles. The penetration is entirely painless. The contractions will strain the tissue. In response, the body adapts in two ways: it creates new tissue fibers and strengthens the existing fibers.

First, Emsculpt will create new tissue that provides volumetric growth. This makes the buttocks appear plumper. Second, the strengthening of existing tissues helps improve muscle tone. This results in a subtle lifting effect on the booty.

The results are a more pump and lifted rear end. This treatment is the perfect option for people who want to avoid surgery and pain.

See Emsculpt Results >>

The 30-Minute Non-Surgical Butt Lift

Emsculpt induces powerful muscle contractions. The contractions are known as “supramaximal” contractions. This treatment works the muscles in a vigorous way that cannot be achieved through manual exercise.

During the 30-minute procedure, HIFEM energy induces more than 20,000 contractions in the glutes. To manually achieve this, a person would have to do 20,000 squats. To put that number into perspective better, you would have to do five sets of 12 squats every day for an entire year to induce the same amount of contractions induced in a single Emsculpt treatment.

Men and women love Emsculpt because it helps them enhance and strengthen their physique in a superhuman way.

EMSCULPT RESULTS | HOW LONG DOES EMSCULPT LAST?

How long does Emsculpt last

EMSCULPT RESULTS | HOW LONG DOES EMSCULPT LAST?

Emsculpt is the revolutionary muscle building treatment that sculps the abs, arms, legs, and buttocks. But how long does Emsculpt last? Read on to learn more about this body contouring treatment, along with when to expect to see results and how long those results will last.

WHAT IS EMSCULPT?

To better answer how long does Emsculpt last, it is helpful to understand the technology behind the muscle building treatment and how Emsculpt works.

Like strength training exercises performed at the gym, Emsculpt places tension on the muscles via contractions. But Emsculpt does not induce normal muscle contractions. Emsculpt’s contractions are much stronger than can be performed manually.

During a treatment, Highly Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HIFEM energy) safely passes through the skin to stimulate underlying muscle tissues. The HIFEM energy causes the muscles to contract without any relaxation in between contractions. A single treatment, which lasts only 30-minutes, induces more than 20,000 supramaximal contractions.

To equal this workout at the gym, a person would have to perform 20,000 crunches to match a single Emsculpt treatment on the abdomen. It would require 20,000 bicep curls to equal an Emsculpt treatment on the arms. It would require 20,000 squats to match an Emsculpt treatment on the buttocks. Lastly, it would require 20,000 lunges to match the muscle workout of an Emsculpt treatment performed on the legs.

Learn more about Emsculpt >>

EMSCULPT RESULTS

Emsculpt is not painful, and it requires no downtime. For 24 to 48 hours after your treatment, you will experience muscle soreness like the sensation felt after a hard workout.

Individual experiences may vary, but many patients begin to see Emsculpt results within 6 to 8 weeks after completing their treatment plan. Scientific studies show that muscle building and fat reduction continue for 6 months after completion of treatment.

See Emsculpt before and after pics >>

But how long does Emsculpt last? Many patients of Body Morph MD report significant longevity of their results. However, muscles need consistent stimulation to prevent atrophy (the breakdown of muscles.) The adage, ‘use it or lose it’ may be appropriate when discussing how long does Emsculpt last. If you continue to work out your muscles, either at the gym or through continual Emsculpt treatments, your results will last.

BUILD MUSCLE + BURN FAT WITH EMSCULPT

BUILD MUSCLE + BURN FAT WITH EMSCULPT

If you want to build muscle, burn fat, and transform your physique, diet and exercise can help. But they are not your only options. Emsculpt, the new muscle building treatment can reduce fat and build muscle. Read on to find out how and check out real patient results.

Learn more about Emsculpt >>

HOW DOES EMSCULPT BUILD MUSCLE, BURN FAT, AND TRANSFORM YOUR BODY?

Utilizing Highly Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy, Emsculpt stimulates underlying tissue to force the muscles to contract.  One 30-minute session induces 20,000 contractions in the targeted muscle group. Just as it does with manual exercise, the body adapts to the tension placed on the muscles during an Emsculpt treatment by reinforcing muscle cells. This process is known as hypertrophy and leads to bigger, stronger, firmer muscles.

BURN FAT

Emsculpt burns fat to fuel the muscle-building process. In response to the strong muscle contractions, the body uses nearby fat cells for energy. This process is known as lipolysis and leads to a reduction in fat.

STUDIES CONFIRM EMSCULPT BUILDS MUSCLE + BURNS FAT

Clinical data proves that Emsculpt builds muscle and burns fat. One study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found significant reductions in waist circumference and a reduction of fat. In fact, one treatment to the abdomen led to an “average 18.6% reduction of adipose tissue thickness.” This, along with muscle-building, led to an extremely high patient satisfaction rate.

The scientists of this questioned the participants and reported, “89% of patients were satisfied with the treatment results immediately after the last treatment…After the last treatment, 95% of the patients reported that they would recommend the treatment to a friend… Also, 89% of patients reported that their abdominal appearance improved immediately after the last treatment, and this self‐report further increased to 95% at month three follow‐up.” The study explained, “Observed waist size reduction and aesthetic improvement appear to be a combination of fat reduction and increased muscle definition of the abdominal wall.”

EMSCULPT BEFORE AND AFTER*

Emsculpt builds muscle, burns fat, and transforms the abdomen, as seen in these before and after pictures. As with all body shaping treatments, individual experiences may vary.*

EMSCULPT TREATMENT AREAS

Emsculpt is cleared by the FDA for the “improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, development of firmer abdomen. Strengthening, toning, and firming of buttocks,  thighs, and calves. Improvement of muscle tone and firmness, for strengthening muscles in arms.”

By building muscle and burning fat with Emsculpt, men and women can:

  • Reduce fat from the belly and transform the appearance of the abdomen by developing ab muscles.
  • Target fat below the buttocks commonly called a banana roll. In addition, strengthening the glutes lifts and firms the tissue. This provides men and women with a non-surgical alternative to a butt-lift.
  • Build and sculpt the triceps and biceps
  • Burn thigh fat for thin, toned thighs

HOW MUCH DOES EMTONE COST? HOW TO SAVE ON EMTONE PRICES

Emtone cost ranges from $750 to $800. However, prices depend on several factors, like treatment area and discounts from package pricing. Read on to learn more about what price points affect Emtone cost and what you can do to save money on this revolutionary cellulite reduction treatment.

HOW DOES EMTONE WORK?

To better understand what determines Emtone cost, it is helpful to know how the cellulite treatment works.

Emtone gets rid of the main factors that cause cellulite. These factors include:

  • the enlargement of fat cells
  • damage to collagen and elastin
  • decreased skin elasticity
  • impaired circulation
  • fluid retention
  • metabolic waste buildup

Emtone targets these factors using a hand device that emits dual energies: mechanical pressure waves using acoustic energy and radiofrequency (RF). During the treatment, your Emtone specialist massages the hand device over the treatment area, focusing on the areas with the most cellulite buildup. The handpiece emits the dual energies, stimulating a cascade of therapeutic benefits. These include:

  • Tightening and remodeling the connective fibers of collagen and elastin
  • Disrupting enlarged fat cells
  • Stimulating skin rejuvenation
  • Improving skin elasticity
  • Improving circulation to clear out metabolic waste and other debris.

See Real Emtone Results >>

FACTORS THAT DETERMINE EMTONE COST

When pricing the Emtone procedure, the cost is determined by several factors. They include:

Treatment area. Emtone can target nearly any area suffering from cellulite. Popular treatment areas include the abdomen, the flanks (love handles or hips), the buttocks, the upper arms, and the various areas on the thighs (inner thighs, outer thighs, and the back of the thighs.) Bigger treatment areas (such as the abdomen) cost more than smaller treatment areas (like the inner thighs.)

Package Pricing: While many patients see improvement after a single Emtone treatment, most patients opt for the recommended protocol of four treatments, spaced one to two weeks apart. This series of four treatments garners the best results and ensures the highest patient satisfaction possible.

When determining Emtone cost, most providers will give patients a discount if they purchase an Emtone package of four treatments. Further savings are possible when adding additional treatment areas.

Emtone Specials: Some providers, like Body Morph MD offer new client specials. Call Body Morph MD to learn about current promotions.

FINDING THE BEST EMTONE PROVIDER NEAR YOU

Remember, cost is only one factor to consider when shopping for a provider in your area. Emtone is a technique sensitive procedure. This means the experience and expertise of the person performing your treatment greatly impacts your results. The best way to get the most bang for your buck is shopping by quality, not pricing.
