PowerSculpt session is equivalent to doing around 20,000 sit-ups or squats depending on the area that’s being targeted. PowerSculpt allows you to burn fat and tone your abs and buttocks without any pain or downtime.
PowerSculpt is a treatment procedure for the improvement of the following body areas:
- Abdominal tone improvement
- Development of a firmer abdomen
- Strengthening of the abdominal muscles
- Strengthening, toning and firming of the thighs and buttocks
- Improvement of muscle tone and firmness in the arms
The PowerSculpt device helps to contract muscles far beyond what’s possible through typical strength training, which helps to provide superior muscle definition and tone and boosted fat metabolism. Results from PowerSculpt procedures are currently backed by multiple clinical studies that show loss of fat, as well as more defined muscles in the abdomen area and buttocks after a series of only 4 sessions.
PowerSculpt uses HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic Energy) to help create this superior muscle contraction. This device uses a wide variety of different muscle contractions which go far beyond what you may be able to receive working out in the gym.
What Happens During a Treatment?
The PowerSculpt procedure lasts 30 minutes. An applicator is secured to either the abdomen or the buttock. Once in place, involuntary contractions are generated by the machine. These forced contractions are called supramaximal contractions due to the high intensity achieved. Muscles which are practically impossible to engage voluntarily are also recruited in the intense contractions.
To ensure muscle fatigue doesn’t settle in, cycles of contractions are followed by a cycle of lactic acid dispersion. This allows the PowerSculpt process to generate an enormous 20,000 contractions in a short 30 minutes. Imagine being able to reap the benefits from 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes with next to no discomfort or downtime afterwards!
Is it Painful and are There any Side Effects?
Despite being able to emulate a staggering 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes, PowerSculpt is actually not painful. In normal high intensity workouts our muscles fatigue rapidly and lactic acid build up can cause excruciating pain. PowerSculpt has been designed to counter this physiological response by utilizing a sophisticated cycling technology whereby muscle contractions are followed by a short period where lactic acid is pushed out of the muscles. This allows the body to withstand an incredibly intense workout without the pain and fatigue experienced in the gym!
PowerSculpt or CryoSculpt?
This is the main and most important difference between CryoSculpt and PowerSculpt. CryoSculpt is the gold standard non-surgical fat reduction treatment for patients who want to spot-reduce stubborn fat bulges on the abs, thighs, back, hips, flanks, banana rolls, upper arms, or under the chin. It works by delivering intense cold temperatures through the skin, which directly causes a portion of the fat cells in the treatment area to shrivel and die permanently, helping you lose excess fat in that area
