27 Mar Discover All 4 BTL Technologies
BTL is the maker behind four revolutionary technologies including Emsculpt, Emface, Emsella, and Emtone. All are available at RefinedMD and may help you achieve a better aesthetic and boost in confidence in 2023. Let’s take a look at what these unique technologies offer and see which might be for you, starting with the celeb favorite Emsculpt.
Emsculpt debuted just a few years ago and quickly gained social media royalty status. It works by forcing targeted body muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. It can be used anywhere you’d typically want to improve, grow, and strengthen muscles such as the glutes, abs, upper arms, and legs. You can schedule back-to-back sessions, such as combining the glutes with the back for a full hour of non-stop muscle-building.
Using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy, Emsculpt offers a totally non-invasive and comfortable complement to gym workouts. Most clients require 4 – 6 initial sessions spaced about one month apart, followed by maintenance appointments every 6 months for optimal results. Since your body doesn’t know the difference between contractions at the gym or via Emsculpt, it’s identical to performing 20,000 lunges, crunches, curls, squats, or other strengthening move (but in just 30 minutes, with no pain and without you lifting a finger). It’s no wonder it’s the go-to treatment for those looking to boost their gains.
Emface Takes Emsculpt Up a Notch
Emface uses the same technology as Emsculpt, but is designed specifically for the face. It also builds muscles, specifically in the cheeks and forehead, but the goal is a lifting and tightening effect rather than “bulking up.” If you’ve heard about face yoga, Emface shares some similarities with the main differences being that Emface is much faster, easier, and refined. Just like with Emsculpt, Emface can feel a little strange the first time but there is no pain or discomfort.
Also like Emsculpt, you’ll require a few initial sessions of Emface to get the best results. It an be used alongside other options for reducing lines and wrinkles or creating volume, such as Botox and fillers. However, Emsculpt is not an injectable and no needles are needed. The results are subtle, natural, and stem strictly from your body’s own boost of muscle toning. Many people get Emsculpt and Emface at the same appointment.
What About Emsella?
The Emsella chair is a comfortable physiotherapy treatment for anyone struggling with urinary incontinence. This includes both men and women, and can be especially helpful for post-partum people or women who are experiencing a decrease in sexual satisfaction. Emsella addresses the pelvic floor muscles, which are in charge of the organs in this area and, in turn, control continence. As we get older, as well as after childbirth or menopause, these muscles can become de-conditioned. This can lead to continence issues like leaking urine when laughing, coughing, or sneezing.
Emsella uses HIFEM energy to strengthen pelvic floor muscles beyond what can be achieved with Kegel exercises. Sessions last 30 minutes and provide the equivalent of 11,000 pelvic floor exercise reps , all while you sit in the specialized chair. It’s fast and convenient, with clients remaining fully clothed throughout the session. Most describe the sensation as a light tingling. There is no downtime needed.
Emtone for Cellulite
Cellulite occurs in over 90 percent of women and in many men. Emtone is a non-invasive option to decrease cellulite dimples via radiofrequency energy and targeted pressure. The radiofrequency heats the skin to 108 – 111 degrees without causing discomfort or side effects. This is the ideal temperature to kick-start collagen production, which will tighten the fibers and help skin become smoother and tauter. At the same time, acoustic waves are emitted from the machine to encourage blood circulation, skin cell regeneration, and decrease the accumulation of fluid.
Unlike some other cellulite treatments, Emtone is suitable for both men and women and can be used on any part of the body cellulite occurs. This includes the buttocks, thighs, arms, and abs. Targeted pressure further helps to “smooth” the treatment area. Most clients require a few sessions for the best results.
