Imagine getting a toned body without letting go of your favorite food or having to sweat it out in the gym like everybody else. Wouldn’t that be great? If only it were possible.
Thanks to technology, it is! If you’ve never heard of HIFEM or you have and have no idea what it means, this article is just for you.
With some touting it as a revolution in aesthetic medicine, it’s more than just a 21st century fad. It is clear that this technology is here to stay.
What is HIFEM Body Contouring?
HIFEM Body contouring also known as HIFEM body sculpting is the use of High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic muscle technology to tone up the body’s muscles and reduce fat. Basically, with this innovative technology, you get the result of hours and hours of workout sessions without the actual workout sessions. HIFEM is not the only way to rid your body of unwanted fat but its non-invasive nature has made it a more preferable option than going under the knife which is highly invasive and potentially life-threatening.
Benefits of HIFEM Body Contouring
It is a focused treatment: The precision and exactitude with which this technology functions makes it highly effective. The treatment impacts the fat and muscles directly, in ways regular exercise cannot. Studies have shown an average fat reduction of 19% and an average increase in muscle of 16% by using HIFEM technology.
It is non-invasive: There are no surgical operations involved in the use of this technology. HIFEM gets the same job done by working from outside the body and effectively impacting and toning the affected areas of the body which may either be the abdomen, thighs or the buttocks. For this reason, it leaves no scars like surgical procedures.
It is safe for your body: As with any alternative to what most people would call natural, there are doubts that this high tech-based treatment is actually safe for the body. The good news is that not only does it strengthen core muscles and effectively improve overall health. As earlier stated, due to its non-invasive nature, it is non-invasive like surgery. What’s more, you can avoid the hours of fatigue that are sure to follow an intense workout session. This is because with HIFEM, there is no pain, just toning and strengthening. With HIFEM, you get the gain without the pain. Equally important, HIFEM technology is latest body contouring treatment to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
It makes you look good in less time: Let’s be honest, looking toned, lean, and healthy, are the major reasons, if not the mean reasons why, most people work hair in the gym. HIFEM definitely gets the job done. And it only takes about 30 minutes per session, And to get optimal results, one can undergo about 4 to 6 sessions in total over a period of 2 to 4 weeks.
It’s ideal for sports injury patients: Research shows that HIFEM is very popular with athletes recovering from sports injuries as it is a quick way “to strengthen the muscle groups that have become weak due to injury.”
No period of rest is needed afterwards: This is perhaps, apart from HIFEM’s incredible results, one of its main attractions. The idea that you could get a toned and strengthened core without feeling overly-fatigued or weighed down by body pains afterwards are what makes this technology so appealing to many. Users may experience slight discomfort in the targeted area of treatment for a couple of days but that’s about it. There are no extended periods of fatigue or bed rest needed. They will still be able to go about their daily activities afterwards with very minimal reminder of muscle contraction.
It enhances metabolism: Yes, as unexpected as it may sound, this is one of the benefits of HIFEM technology. The supramaximal muscle contractions effected by HIFEM not only tone the muscles but can also lead to increased metabolism in the body. This is understandable as it also serves to reduce body fat and one of the common ways to expel fat is through the body’s metabolic activities. According to European clinical research, treatment patients have an increased rate of metabolism because of the treatment.
It has long-lasting effects: It is believed that the use of body contouring technology has effects which last at least 6 months after the completion of the treatment. However, a good and regular exercise routine and healthy eating is recommended to maintain these results.
It should be noted that as beneficial as HIFEM is to the human body, it’s not for everyone. Among the classes of people for whom this technology is not recommended are those who have generalized fat around the body, not just in specific areas of the body; those who for health reasons are advised by their doctors to regularly exercise or have a recommended fitness regimen, those who use prosthetics, pacemakers or have any form of metal implanted in or attached to their bodies for health reasons; pregnant or breastfeeding mothers; and those with bleeding disorders. Anyone who falls into any of these categories are seriously advised to consult their doctors first before attempting to use HIFEM. For those with substantial body fat, it is actually advised that they shed the weight naturally first before using HIFEM as this will ensure that they get optimal results.
