This Body Sculpting Treatment Is Better Than Your HIIT Class

resized-2

Imagine getting the benefits of six HIIT classes in just 30 minutes. That’s illumiaSculpt for you. The illumia-exclusive machine uses FDA-approved High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to simultaneously burn fat and build muscle so not only do you look better, but you also feel stronger—without even moving a muscle. All you have to do is lay back, relax and let the illumiaSculpt machine do the work(out) for you.

You could be post-partum or not seeing desired results from your fitness journey or just looking to add some definition to your biceps and triceps. Whichever your concern, illumiaSculpt can help.

How the magic happens

 High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology uses induced electric currents that feel like pulses to force the muscles in your glutes or abs to contract like they would while doing a squat or a sit up, only much harder. Think 20,000 sit ups in 30 minutes. These high-tension contractions help build new muscle fibres while developing existing muscle and this translates into bigger biceps and triceps, a stronger core and a perkier butt that also help you perform better at your workouts. These benefits can also be extended to your thighs, calves and flank. And, if you’re post partum, it helps push out-of-shape abdominal muscles back together while also strengthening them.

But the magic doesn’t stop there. This treatment also tackles the layer of fat that sits on top of the muscle to give you that coveted sculpted look. The supramaximal contractions trigger the release of a hormone that helps break down fat deposits through lipolysis. These destroyed fat cells are then naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system.

The treatment has three phases. Just as in a workout, the muscles at the area to be treated are warmed up with gentle, comfortable pulses. Next, supramaximal contractions are induced with stronger, more frequent pulses. At the end of the treatment, slower pulses help the muscles cool down so you don’t feel too sore after your session. The whole process is quick—each session is only 30 minutes—non-invasive, relatively painless and requires no down time. You can even schedule a session during your lunch hour and go back to your regular activities after.

 

The results

As fat cells get eliminated from the body and the muscle tissue grows you should start seeing a reduction in inches and a more sculpted physique in two to three weeks. You can expect to see those obliques you’ve been counting calories for or chiselled biceps that you’ve been pumping iron for.

It’s ideal to get at least four to six sessions to see the best results. Since this is a fat reducing and body contouring treatment, it is great for those who already have a healthy diet and workout in place and just need to get rid of that stubborn layer of fat, whether it’s on their abdomen, buttocks, arms or back. By no means should this treatment be used as a replacement for working out and eating healthy.
