What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting is the process of reshaping your body to improve your appearance. There is a range of treatments available to sculpt your body, both surgical and non-surgical.
Even with diet and exercise, most adults have stubborn areas of fat that seem impossible to get rid of. Body sculpting can help change the contours of the body to create a more pleasing appearance. VIEW COURSES

How Does Body Sculpting Work?
Body sculpting is performed using a range of different procedures, including both surgical and non-invasive body sculpting techniques.
Surgical approaches to body sculpting, also called body contouring, include liposuction, plastic surgery and tummy tucks.
There are also non-surgical body contouring treatments, including laser body sculpting, which use heating and cooling to reduce unwanted fat deposits.
In all procedures, the problem areas of the body are treated to reduce fat, reshape the skin or lift and restore a natural, healthy appearance.

Body sculpting made popular by celebrities looking for the perfect body shape and has risen in popularity with most of us on display via social media.
Body sculpting gets rid of fat cells and reduces the appearance of fat on targeted areas of the body. Whether using BioSculpt or Cryolipolysis, or ultrasound cavitation, body sculpting treatments destroy fat cells that are then excreted over the next couple of months, which is when you’ll see full results.
Body sculpting treatment to shape the body and get rid of stubborn bulges it’s not a weight-loss treatment. It’s best for those within a few kilograms of their goal weight who maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise. Body sculpting is ideally used to get rid of stubborn fat that can’t be reduced through exercise.
Let’s take a look at the different body sculpting treatments.
FAT FREEZING VS HIEMT SCULPTING
Cryolipolysis and HIEMT body sculpting are both non-invasive body contouring devices. But that is where the similarity ends. Cryolipolysis uses fat freezing to reduce pockets of unwanted fat. Whereas HIEMT body sculpting uses rapid muscle contractions to build or sculpt muscle. So, think defined abs or butt lift; however, it does have some localized fat reducing properties.
There are alternative technologies for body sculpting, such as radiofrequency, fat heating, fat dissolving injections and surgical liposuction. HIEMT body sculpting and Fat Freezing work best if you have a normal BMI. Neither is meant for weight control. So, what are the differences between the two?
CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING TECHNOLOGY?
Cryolipolysis and HIEMT body sculpting have a similar aim, i.e. body sculpting. However, the mode of action is very different.
Cryolipolysis uses cryolipolysis or fat freezing for spot reduction of fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
In contrast, HIEMT body sculpting uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce 10 – 20,000 muscle contractions in one session. It is like doing an intense workout and provides muscle sculpting. It can help with fat reduction as long as you maintain a low sugar diet while getting treatment. So once available sugar is used, it will turn to fat burning.
Cryolipolysis uses a handpiece to suck fat into a cup, taken to a low temperature. The aim is to induce fat cell death for the permanent reduction of fat. The released fat is then eliminated from your body.
HIEMT body sculpting, on the other hand, delivers HIFEM via a handpiece strapped over the muscle you wish to condition. The focused magnetic stimulation causes rapid, repeated muscle contraction. Think of thousands of sit-ups in a single 30-minute session.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING COMFORT LEVEL
Both fat freezing and HIEMT body sculpting can feel uncomfortable during the treatment. HIEMT body sculpting is much less uncomfortable with an initial period of unease as your muscles get used to the intensity of contractions.
Cryolipolysis does cause more significant discomfort at the start and end of the treatment.
Firstly, when the fat is initially sucked into the cup, it can feel like an intense pulling.
However, once the temperature is lowered, the area is numb, and there is no discomfort experienced.
Secondly, when the handpiece is removed, and the fat is massaged, there can be a more intense pain as the blood returns to the area and warms up (like pins and needles).
TREATMENT TIME CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING
Fat freezing and HIEMT body sculpting have very different treatment recommendations.
Cryolipolysis takes an hour to treat an area.
HIEMT body sculpting is a 30-minute treatment.
With Cryolipolysis, the procedure is repeated at 8 -12 weeks for further reduction of fat. Optimally most people require 2-4 treatments for reduction.
In comparison, the HIEMT body sculpting is recommended as a minimum of 4 but generally, 8 treatments are performed every three days for optimal results. So, with the HIEMT body sculpting, you are best to make sure you have dedicated time set aside over a few weeks for optimal results.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING RESULTS
Although both Cryolipolysis and HIEMT are body contouring treatments, Cryolipolysis focuses on spot fat reduction, and HIEMT body sculpting focuses on muscle toning, with some fat reducing benefits.
Cryolipolysis claims to produce a permanent reduction in fat in the treated area (because the freezing induces fat cell death).
In contrast, the HIEMT body sculpting results need to be repeated once every 12 weeks to 6 months.
Combining Cryolipolysis and HIEMT body sculpting treatments should give superior results for abs. Firstly reducing the fat with Cryolipolysis, then building definition with the HIEMT body sculpting.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING
We can apply Cryolipolysis and HIEMT body sculpting to multiple body areas.
HIEMT body sculpting is primarily used for sculpting abs and non-surgical butt lift; however, we can also apply it to the top of thighs, butt, arms or calves.
Cryolipolysis can be used for the tummy, chin, arms, bra fat, love handles, inner & outer thighs, knees, banana roll, back fat, i.e., most body areas have unwanted fat.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING FOR CELLULITE
Neither technology is indicated for cellulite, though both may have some side benefits to help reduce the fat, increase blood supply and provide some side benefits of skin tightening.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING SIDE EFFECTS
While both Cryolipolysis and HIEMT body sculpting are, non-invasive both have possible side effects.
Cryolipolysis side effects include pain, bruising, sensitivity or numbness, lumpiness in treated areas. There is also the risk of over-response, resulting in local divots (as the fat is reduced too much in one area). The flip side is the possibility of paradoxical hyperplasia (PAH). Where, instead of fat reducing in the treated area, it increases.
HIEMT body sculpting can also give muscular pain in the treated area. Generally, this is similar to after an intense workout however it reduces as you have more treatments.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR CRYOLIPOLYSIS VS HIEMT BODY SCULPTING
The ideal candidate for both cool sculpting and HIEMT body sculpting is someone who has a BMI of 25 or less. Both treatments are designed to reduce fat in specific areas not as a weight-loss treatment.
COMBINING CRYOLIPOLYSIS & HIEMT SCULPTING
There are two key components to achieving the body you want: targeted fat loss and targeted muscle “gains.” Both can be achieved when you combine Fat Freezing with HIEMT Sculpting. These two non-invasive procedures require no downtime and no incisions. Both offer fat reduction and are not a fat loss treatment (although some small amount of fat loss may be achieved with either treatment). If they both offer spot reduction—which, remember, can’t be achieved by diet or exercise—what makes them different? And why should they be used together?
Let’s get back to basics: diet and cardio can both decrease the size of fat cells in the body. However, diet and exercise do not let you choose which fat cells are being decreased or to what degree. That’s why you may have discovered that no amount of working out or eating healthy gets rid of stubborn pockets of fat. Plus, diet and exercise can only reduce the actual size of fat cells, they are not entirely removed. Fat Freezing allows for targeted fat reduction by freezing away unwanted fat cells. You cannot achieve large weight loss with Fat Freezing, but rather a means of sculpting and contouring your body by targeting stubborn areas of fat. The ideal candidate for Fat Freezing is already at or close to their goal weight and struggling with small areas of fat that just won’t budge.
SLIM AND TONED WITH FAT FREEZING AND HIEMT SCULPTING
The amount of body fat you have as well as its distribution is just half of the equation. Increasingly in recent years, both men and women alike have focused on strength instead of just body fat management. However, achieving hypertrophy is not fast or easy. Hypertrophy is the technical term for making muscles larger and stronger. This traditionally happens in a gym or if someone happens to have a physically demanding job. Muscles must undergo micro-tears in order to get bigger and stronger. As these tears in the fibre heal, muscles naturally get larger and can handle a similar load in the future. That’s why when you work out at the gym you need to keep increasing the weight load in order to keep muscles growing.
Not just any tear in the muscle will do. Unfortunately, a lot of people are well aware of how painful and debilitating a seriously torn muscle can be. If you want muscles to get bigger (or more “toned” as many people say), the muscle needs to achieve what’s called supramaximal contractions that tear the muscle just right. But did you know you don’t need to spend hours at the gym to achieve this aesthetic?
HIEMT Sculpting works by forcing targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes per site. It can be used on the abs, glutes, legs, or upper arms. Ultimately, your muscles don’t know the difference between supramaximal contractions achieved at the gym or through HIEMT Sculpting. Most clients relax during their HIEMT Sculpting session and scroll through their phone, catch up on a favourite show, or even work while their muscles are forced into 20,000 perfect contractions.
THE ULTIMATE DUO
HIEMT Sculpting can also help with fat reduction, but the primary benefit of this technology is muscle gains. There’s no way anyone could perform 20,000 reps of any strength training exercise in one session, and especially not in 30 minutes. HIEMT Sculpting lets you undertake 20,000 lunges, squats, crunches, bicep curls, and a host of other traditional strength training moves without having to break a sweat. However, just like a traditional workout (because HIEMT Sculpting achieves the same results as a traditional workout), the results aren’t immediate. Most clients undergo a few customized HIEMT Sculpting sessions spaced a few weeks apart, then see their final results a few weeks afterwards.
You can undergo both Fat Freezing and HIEMT Sculpting in the same timeframe. After all, you can’t see the muscles you’re building if they’re covered in too much fat. By reducing fat with both Fat Freezing and HIEMT Sculpting, you can customize your body so that it’s svelte and toned in just the way you like.
