Dr. Maddox and his staff are amazing! I recently finished my emsculpt treatments, and can already see and feel a big difference. Everyone is always so friendly and welcoming. They take the time to really get to know their clients which I really love. Ill be back!

Throughout modern history, men and women have tried all sorts of gimmicks to avoid the extreme workouts necessary for shapely, toned bodies. Fortunately, non-invasive body shaping is now a reality with Emsculpt treatment from BTL, a leader in aesthetic medicine. This groundbreaking technology is available at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR.

Why aren’t we all buff?

Heredity plays a big role in body type, including muscle mass, and amount and distribution of fat. Subcutaneous fat (the layer just beneath the skin) stores calories. It also produces a sugar-controlling hormone called adiponectin, critical to energy levels and insulin management. When we build up a little too much subcutaneous fat, these traits cause a snowball effect, creating even more weight gain around the midsection, thighs, and hips. As energy level drops, we are less enthusiastic about activities that burn calories and build lean muscle.

At one time a person had to be strong and fit to survive. That is not usually necessary for modern men and women. Stress, however, is a big threat.

Get the shape without the sweat with BTL Emsculpt treatment Emotional tension causes the body to produce excess cortisol, a hormone that causes blood sugar to drop, leaving you craving fatty and sweet foods. Hormonal fluctuations that occur with age can also affect body shape for both men and women.

Emsculpt body contouring aids in fat removal and stimulates increased muscles density, for a non-invasive butt lift, and a firm, flat abdomen.

Curvaceous buttocks

The same medical principles apply to remodeling the backside with Emsculpt. HIFEM pulses induce supramaximal contractions of all gluteal muscles, well beyond what can be attained through squats. The combination of hypertrophy, hyperplasia, and fat disruption lifts and shapes the buttocks.

What to expect from BTL Emsculpt treatment

  • This FDA-approved treatment is safe and beneficial for most people. Because Emsculpt is non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free, there are few counter-indications. Nearly anyone who wants a leaner, more toned body can be a good candidate, regardless of weight or body type.
  • Emsculpt is convenient and customized. A session takes about 30 minutes and no pre-treatment preparation is required. The clinician works with you to determine the most appropriate treatment schedule to meet your body-shaping goals. Generally, that involves at least four sessions, performed every two to three days.
  • You can feel it working, but treatment is not painful. Just relax and let technology do the work. You feel pulses of energy penetrating bodily tissues, and a muscle sensation similar to during a workout – without the sweat.
  • There is no downtime or recovery period. You can schedule an Emsculpt session in the middle of the day and get right back to your busy schedule, without any post-procedure protocol. You won’t even need to shower before returning to work or other activities.
  • Expect to feel like you had a terrific workout – because your muscles did! – for a day or two after treatment. Change begins to be noticeable within two to four weeks. With Emsculpt, improvement persists for several weeks after the last session, as deep muscle conversion and fat reduction continue.
  • Because the transformation is built upon a foundation of strong muscle, results are long-lasting. However, to maintain your Emsculpt contours, schedule periodic re-treatment.

“Emsculpted” abs

Emsculpt technology uses a proprietary system called HIFEM. The applicator delivers High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy to the targeted area. HIFEM energy goes right through the skin, without harming it. Treatment induces intense, rapid muscle contractions, deeper and more powerful than can be achieved voluntarily with sit-up, crunches, or any other exercise.

Muscle tissue responds to these strong contractions with internal remodeling. Supramaximal muscle contractions trigger hypertrophy or an increase in muscle volume, as well as hyperplasia – a boost in the quantity of healthy muscle fibers. Meanwhile, treatment dramatically enhances cell metabolism, breaking down fat in the treated area more efficiently.

All you do is lie back and relax while Emsculpt induces changes that tone and define the midsection.
