The Story Behind Emsculpt

Emsculpt is a revolutionary technology that forces 20,000 muscle contractions in the abs or buttocks in a 30-minute session. It is one of the most popular treatments at RefinedMD, giving clients the equivalent of a major gym session without the stress on the body 20,000 crunches or squats would require. Emsculpt might be a new procedure, but it was designed by BTL Industries, which has been a leader in manufacturing medical and esthetic equipment since 1993.

For over 25 years, BTL has been amongst the first to create and manufacture life-changing tech. They have offices in over 53 countries spanning four continents. BTL employs over 1,500 people including 250 research and design engineers. Although BTL’s specialty is cardiology, including Holter monitoring systems and Pneumology, they also have an impressive esthetics department.

When it comes to aesthetics, BTL prioritizes non-invasive procedures. They are known for fat cell disruption tech, skin tightening treatments, hair removal technology, and many facial therapies. However, in 2018 Emsculpt was introduced to the world. It’s an answer for anyone looking to simultaneously gain muscle (or get “toned”) while reducing fat. The Massachusetts-based company designed Emsculpt to force muscle contractions, identical to what happens in strength training, but at a rapid rate.

Emsculpt was created because BTL knows that even if you have “less than an inch to pinch,” getting that ideal body is about more than just fat loss. Shaping the body’s muscles, particularly in the abs and buttocks, is a struggle for many. When over a third of the body is made up of muscle, it only makes sense to treat muscle esthetics just as much as fat loss—especially when you’re already at a goal weight.
