Emscuplt™ uses the non-invasive HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology inducing supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. When exposed to supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme conditions. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.
Intensive supramaximal contractions enhance the release of epinephrine which triggers a cascade effect leading to supramaximal lipolysis in fat cells. Because the stimulation is so rapid and intensive, the lipolytic response is excessive, and FFAs start over-accumulating in adipocytes. The FFA overflow causes cell dysfunction and induction of apoptosis – programmed cell death.
