In the study, a group of subjects received 30 minutes of high-frequency current therapy via a series of electrodes placed on their stomachs. The subjects did these sessions 3 times per week for 6 weeks, for a total of 18 EMS sessions. The researchers measured waist circumference, body mass index, subcutaneous fat mass (that's fat found under the skin), and body fat percentage.
The results were surprising, especially considering these women didn’t modify their exercise or diet. The electrical stimulation caused significant effects on decreasing waist circumference, abdominal obesity, subcutaneous fat mass, and body fat percentage, leading the study to note in the final results that: “The use of the high-frequency current therapy may be beneficial for reducing the levels of abdominal obesity in young women.”
Other studies have shown EMS to be helpful for everything from pain management to helping increase muscle blood flow for warming up prior to performance-related activities.
Body Sculpting video procedure - Cavitation and radio frequency
Here is an excellent UK spa example of a safe and stress free cavitation and radio frequency machine demo. Please note that this is an unaffiliated UK based spa demonstrating a technology that we use here at our clinic in Sydney - this video was not made at our clinic and the brand of their cavitation machine is different to ours. Please see the demonstration here.
Anti Aging and skin rejuvenation with LED
This study looks at the use of visible or near infrared spectral light alone for the purpose of skin rejuvenation has been previously reported. A method of light emitting diode (LED) photo rejuvenation incorporating a combination of these wavelengths and thus compounding their distinct stimulation of cellular components is proposed. Objective. To assess the efficacy and local tolerability of combination light therapy in photo rejuvenation of facial skin.
The study showed significant differences at week 12 follow-up; 52% of subjects showed a 25%-50% improvement in photoaging scores by week 12; 81% of subjects reported a significant improvement in periorbital wrinkles on completion of follow-up.
