Dr. Jacqueline Calkin of Calkin Boudreaux Dermatology Associates was on Fox 40 today discussing the Emsculpt.
Fox 40 described it as the "BTL Emsculpt Ab Stimulation Device".
According to the segment, the Emsculpt is FDA-cleared for the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
The procedure involves 4 treatments over 2 weeks. Dr. Calkin says the device has 7 clincal studies.
Emsculpt uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to produce supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. These contractions build muscle and cause spot fat reduction.
Dr. Calkin says the device has no published side effects. There is no heat, no burning.
