EMSCULPT - HIFEM Technology to Treat Both Fat & Muscle in Maryland

The newest innovation in non-invasive body sculpting, which treats both muscle & fat at the same time is EMSCULPT and it is now available at the Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin & Vein Institute.

Dr. Robert Weiss & Dr. Margaret Weiss were pioneers in developing and perfecting this technology over the last 2 years and is the first practice in Maryland to offer this treatment. 

EMSCULPT was designed for both men and women and is a body sculpting treatment that not only burns fat, but also tightens and tones the underlying muscles.

"Completely unique technology for body shaping. Not only reduces fat but shapes underlying muscles as well," explains Dr. Robert Weiss, a dermatologist in Baltimore who continues, " We now have a device which addresses lax muscle under fat.  Works really well in conjunction with all the other non-invasive and possibly invasive ways of fat reduction.  For many middle aged patients fat reduction with cooling or heating gave less than optimal results because of bulging weak muscles under the fat. But with the addition of this device and technology we can now get more satisfying or hi-definition results with much greater body contouring than any device which addresses only fat. "
Dr. Weiss stated, "When patients are offered a treatment that burns calories by stimulating core muscle contraction without the effort of crunches, the interest is amazing.  We can now do the intense muscle workout for our patients while they answer e-mails or browse the web.  Many patients have seen benefits of better tone and better results with non-invasive fat reduction devices achieving much improved body contours with the addition of HIFEM technology."

EMSCULPT uses High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions that aren’t achievable through normal, voluntary contractions. It generates impulses at such a rapid frequency that it doesn’t allow a relaxation phase between muscle contractions, forcing the muscle tissue to adapt and respond by remodeling its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.

“We are very proud to be the first practice in Maryland to offer this revolution in non-invasive body sculpting treatments,” said Dr. Margaret Weiss, co-founder of Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin and Vein Institute. “We believe EMSculpt will be an excellent addition to our Body Sculpting center.”
