What is HIFEM?
HIFEM stands for High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic Therapy. It is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to contract muscles beyond what is possible with voluntary contractions.
This results in muscle damage, which triggers the body's natural healing process. As part of this process, the body produces new muscle tissue, which is firmer and more toned.
How does HIFEM work?
HIFEM uses a device that is placed on the skin over the area to be treated. The device emits electromagnetic energy that penetrates deep into the muscle tissue. This energy causes the muscles to contract involuntarily at a very high frequency. The contractions are so powerful that they can be felt by the patient.
What are the benefits of HIFEM?
HIFEM has been shown to be effective in reducing body fat and improving muscle tone. It is a non-surgical procedure that does not require any downtime. HIFEM is also a relatively painless procedure, although some patients may experience mild discomfort during treatment.
What concerns can HIFEM treat?
- Fat loss
- Muscle toning
- Cellulite reduction
- Post-pregnancy body contouring
- Arm and leg contouring
- Buttock lifting
How is HIFEM performed?
HIFEM treatment is a relatively simple procedure that is performed in a doctor's office. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes.
To perform HIFEM treatment, the doctor will first apply a gel to the skin over the area to be treated. The device will then be placed on the skin and turned on. The patient will feel the muscles contracting involuntarily. The treatment will last for 30 minutes.
There is no downtime after HIFEM treatment. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
Risks and side effects?
The risks and side effects of HIFEM treatment are generally mild and temporary. Some of the most common risks and side effects include:
- Muscle soreness
Cost of HIFEM?
The cost of HIFEM treatment varies depending on the area being treated, the number of treatments required, and the doctor's fees.
HIFEM is a safe and effective way to reduce body fat and improve muscle tone. It is a non-surgical procedure that does not require any downtime. If you are considering HIFEM treatment, be sure to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits.
