HIEMT / HIFEM + Radio Frequency (EMSculpt Neo, EMZero Neo, EMslim Neo)

HIEMT stands for high intensity electro-magnetic technology, HIFEM stands for high intensity focused electromagnetism – the two terms are interchangeable and generic.  It is a treatment which can contract your muscles 20,000 times in half an hour using electromagnetic stimulation (don’t confuse this with the electrostimulation of devices like Slendertone which are much less effective and a completely different technology).|

The before and after result of the treatment on my own abdominal muscles can be see top right (results can vary).

HIEMT / HIFEM is the equivalent of doing 20,000 sit ups or 20,000 squats in half an hour! A course of four treatments over two weeks can produce results equivalent to working out at the gym for six months in people who are at or within a stone of their ideal weight.


The treatment can also burn fat in two ways:
 
  • the muscles use up more energy when they get bigger, and so use up fat stores
  • added radio frequency on the treatment paddles also burns some fat. This feature can be turned off if required, on areas such as the buttocks.

How many treatments are needed?

A series of four treatments are recommended over two weeks.

Which areas can be treated?

EMSculpt areas

Arms, abdomen, inner thighs, inner calves, love handles, bottom, outer thighs. The pelvic floor can also be treated with the special “seat” attachment, which we have. This is the same technology used medically to treat urinary incontinence through strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles.

How are muscles built?

The targeted muscles are transformed by the supramaximal contractions that enable 100% of the muscles to be exercised 100% of the time. In addition, fat in the area is reduced as not only is fat burned to supply energy to the contracting muscles, but the addition of radio frequency reduces the amount of fat still further.

How many treatments can you have in a day?

Bottom, abdominals, arms and legs can all be treated. The pelvic floor can also be treated with the special “seat” attachment.

What does it feel like?

It feels like you are doing a high intensity workout without putting in any effort. Afterwards, you are likely to have some muscle soreness as though you have exercised vigorously. The treatment incorporates a muscle warm up, more intense phases and then a cool down to disperse lactic acid from the muscles to minimise post treatment discomfort.  Levels are adjusted to suit the clients age, gender and treatment area and can also be adjusted to suit client comfort and preferences.

Is there any downtime?

No, you are free to carry on with your day. Also, there are no visible marks that a treatment has been performed.

What are the contraindications to treatment?
  • Epilepsy
  • Heart Problems
  • Uncontrolled thyroid problems
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Kidney failure
  • Cancer
  • Pacemaker, defibrillator, stent, drug pump, nerve stimulator
  • Metal or electronic implants (dental implants are ok)
  • A copper IUD
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • It’s not recommended whilst menstruating
What sort of results can I expect?

Muscle size can increase by up to 16% and fat can be reduced by up to 19%. The definition can be seen more easily on clients where the initial layer of body fat is not too deep.

What is the aftercare?

The aftercare is minimal, but clients are recommended to wait an hour after treatment before eating. 

It’s also advisable during the treatment course to drink more water and eat more high protein foods e.g. lean meat, chicken, fish, soya.
