HIFEM® stands for high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology. HIFEM® uses a powerful but harmless form of electromagnetic stimulation to contract the muscles in a targeted area. These magnetic fields create electrical currents, which are passed to the muscles. When these magnetic pulses are fast enough, they force the muscles to contract, much like they do during times of strenuous exercise. Therefore, when the muscles contract enough times, they begin to build muscles and burn fat.What Does HIFEM® Technology Treat?HIFEM® technology treats muscle laxity throughout various areas of the body, including the: ButtocksAbdominal areaTricepsBicepsThighsCalvesHIFEM® can also improve the pelvic floor’s muscle strength and is FDA-approved to treat urinary incontinence in both men and women.As HIFEM® is applied, patients may experience small muscle twitches and movements. The muscles in the treated area will contract with each pulse of HIFEM® energy.The muscle tissues will respond to the intense stimulation by adapting their structure. This stimulates a deep-tissue restructuring that begins metabolically, creating a toned and full appearance in the muscles. HIFEM® can strengthen muscles and increase muscle volume by up to 25 percent.
