Laser Lipo and Vein Center Introduces Groundbreaking Technology
April 02, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsO'FALLON, MO – APRIL 2, 2019 Dr. Thomas Wright, Medical Director of Laser Lipo and Vein Center announces the addition of Emsculpt, the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that simultaneously addresses both Muscle and Fat. Emsculpt introduces an entirely new techology to the category that goes beyond waist line reduction and elimination of fat cells. This dual treatment addresses physiological distinctions currently excluded from other procedures, such as muscle, making it ideal for fit individuals with a lower BMI seeking improvement in muscle and fat in hard to target areas.
"Muscles represent about 35% of the human body, but existing aesthetic treatments only focus on the reduction of fat and fail to address muscle," said Dr. Wright. "Emsculpt now offers a procedure to treat our fitness focused patients who are not candidates for existing technologies as they don't have bulk or excess fat to lose. By finally addressing muscle tone, this treatment supports an individual's dedication to an active and healthy lifestyle, helping them address and further define those particulary stubborun areas," said Dr. Wright.
Emsculpt is FDA-cleared for the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdomen and buttocks. The game changing technology helps fit patients achieve next-level, abdominal contouring results and increases the strength and stamina of the gluteal region to help athletic patients take their buttocks to the next level.
Utilizing HIFEM® technology, Emsculpt offers a first-of-its-kind application of a unique magnetic field which penetrates through skin to deliver almost 20,000 muscular contractions per 30 minute session to impact muscle, as well as fat. Once penetrated, the energy induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also reduce fat. This is the ONLY technology that builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
Tested in seven unique clinical studies[1,2,3,4,5,6,7] utilizing all four established methods of evaluation, including MRI, CT, Ultrasound and Histology, Emsculpt addressed both the abdomen and buttocks and delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat . [2,3 ]
16% increase in muscle mass . [2,3]
Average waist reduction of 4.4cm . 
96% satisfaction with treatment results [5 ]
Dr. Wright is a leader in minimally invasive and non-invasive body shaping treatments. He has authored several peer reviewed articles on the safety and efficacy of minimally invasive procedures. For optimal results, Dr. Wright recommends four 30-minute sessions over the course of a two-week period. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over a 6-month period. The Laser Lipo and Vein Center, located at 830 Waterbury Falls Drive, Suite 202 in O' Fallon, MO is hosting an informational open house on Monday, April 29, from 4:00 – 7:00 PM. Please call 636-397-4012 for more information or to RSVP to the event.
