Fat reduction and muscle growth

Mechanism of action

Synchronized RF (radiofrequency) energy (fat reduction) and HIFEM+ (high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology) energies (muscle growth and toning). Can treat patients up to BMI 35.

How it works

Fat reduction

The radiofrequency energy heats the tissue in the treated area.  In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis.

Clinical studies showed an average of 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat.


Muscle growth and toning

Due to radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress. The HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibers in the treated area at intensities that are not achievable during a workout.  Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells.

Clinical studies showed on average a 25% growth in muscle volume.

Treatment sessions are usually scheduled 5-10 days apart.


There is no downtime.
