HIFEM-Assisted Lasers: What You Need To Know

What is the Superself laser about?

Superself HIFEM is an FDA-cleared body-sculpting procedure that builds muscle and burns fat. It delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) pulses to the muscle tissue, creating supramaximal muscle contractions that activate more muscle fibers than what you can achieve through normal exercise.

This nonsurgical treatment can tighten, tone, and strengthen the large muscle groups of the abdomen and buttocks as well as of smaller body areas, including the upper arms, thighs, and calves. The result is increased muscle definition and reduced circumference.

Superself HIFEM can also reduce muscle separation in the abs, a symptom of diastasis recti, a condition where your abdominal muscles separate (usually during pregnancy) and create a belly pooch. It’s the only nonsurgical treatment shown to be effective in treating abdominal separation.

A single treatment only takes 20 to 30 minutes and after that the client can return to their daily routine, 2-3 treatments per week, would be enough for a perfect result for most people.

Generally, 4-6 treatments are recommended.

In one treatment, you burn up to 2,300 calories.

What are the pros and cons?


  • Treatments are nonsurgical, with no anesthesia required and no downtime afterward.
  • Treatments come with the dual advantage of toning muscles and reducing fat.
  • Superself can be a good option for people who don’t have a lot of excess fat but primarily want a more sculpted, defined physique and stronger muscles.
  • Just four-six  treatments can yield visible results. saw an impressive increase in muscle tone. Some also felt a boost in strength that helped them achieve more during their workouts.
  • In addition, Superself is an extremely effective treatment that takes place over 14-21 days, rather than months and months in the gym. The handsets are placed on the area you want to treat the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, biceps, triceps and calves.
  • HI-FEM (High-Intensity Focused Electro Magnetism) is the medical technology used in aesthetics. It uses a focused electromagnetic field with a safe intensity level.
  • Electromagnetic field passes non-invasively through the body and interacts with motor neurons that enter the muscle fibers themselves and then trigger supramaximal muscle contractions. This can not be achieved with the help of training.


  • People with a few extra pounds to lose may not see as much of a change, because the fat can act as a barrier between the magnetic coil and the muscles, reducing the strength of the muscle contractions during treatment.
  • While it reduces fat, the Superself laser is not a weight loss treatment. Even with positive results, you’re unlikely to see a change in weight.
  • Your treatment plan will likely include multiple sessions in quick succession—six within a three-week period—for optimal results.

How does this work?

One 30-minute Superself session produces nearly 30,000 muscle contractions.

Contracting repeatedly without rest stresses the muscles, which triggers rapid changes at the cellular level that increase muscle size and strength.

To supply energy for so many muscle contractions, neighboring fat cells break down via a process called lipolysis. Damaged fat cells eventually die, and the body naturally eliminates them over the coming weeks. The result of the combined action of muscle tightening and fat-cell destruction is stronger, more defined muscles.

The treatment keeps working after you finish your last session: your muscles should continue to grow and your fat to shrink for about four months after you finish your last procedure.

Depending on the settings determined before the session, EMSculpt creates hyperplasia (increase in the number of fibers) and / or muscular hypertrophy (increase in volume).

Comparison between HIFEM and electrostimulation

Unlike electrostimulation devices, Superself offers maximum efficiency without involving pain. In the case of electrostimulation, the stimulation starts from a plaque placed directly on the skin to join the muscles. Electrostimulation therefore involves a thermal effect as well as a pain (variable depending on the intensity of the stimulation). In the case of Superself, the electromagnetic field directly targets the muscles with maximum intensity, before it is then diffused to the surface (fat) without touching the skin.

This feature has several advantages:

  • No pain, because no thermal effect on the skin (no burning),
  • Maximum efficiency on the muscles
  • For the belly: the electrostimulations act only on the right muscles, Superself acts on the whole muscles of the abdomen.
  • For the buttocks: the electrostimulations act only on the gluteus maximus muscles whereas Superself acts on all the gluteal muscles (large, small and mid-gluteal).

What kind of results can you expect from the Superself treatment?

Muscle mass will increase by about 19%, while fat decreases by nearly 22% after six sessions.

The treatment reduce waist sizes by an average of 1.5 inches (3.29 centimeters) after 4-6 treatments. Three months later, their waist size had shrunk even more—by 1.7 inches (4.37 cm) in total.

The abdominal wall is better defined, the belly appears flatter and the abdominal muscles are more visible. A Superself treatment also favors a recovery of the silhouette, the indirect effect being a very significant reduction in chronic back pain (back pain, lumbago)

Sculpting the abdominal belt

On the abdomen, Superself allows you to tone, strengthen and firm the abdominal belt. It is the first non-invasive treatment that has scientifically proven its effectiveness to reduce a possible diastasis of the postpartum (abdominal muscle spacing).

Firming the buttocks

On the buttocks, Superself allows to redraw the curve of the buttocks by increasing their muscular volume by acting on all the muscles of the buttocks.

Who makes a good candidate?

The treatment works best for those who have less than an inch of pinchable fat in the treated area. The ideal candidate is really anyone who’s looking to get stronger muscles and a stronger core, who wants to be tighter and burn fat.

A Superself series is adapted to clients who want to:

  • Reshape their silhouette, for the moment essentially at the level of the belly and buttocks
  • Tone their body, mainly at the level of the abdomen,
  • Remove excess fats in the belly,
  • Develop a harmonious muscular figure,
  • Make the abdominals more visible by removing the subcutaneous fat (for men in particular) and by increasing the muscles in volume and / or number of fibers,
  • Tone and firm the glutes,
  • Increase the volume of the buttocks,
  • Benefit from the effect of a “buttlift or booty lift” without performing a surgical operation,
  • Correct the separation of the abdominal muscles post-pregnancy (diastasis of rights).

What happens during a Superself treatment?

First, you’ll lie down, and the applicators will be strapped onto the targeted treatment area. Expect the session to last about 30 minutes for large areas and just 20 minutes if you’re having smaller areas treated.

If it’s your first ever session, our team will start the device on its lowest setting. As it begins sending high-intensity electromagnetic energy to the target muscles, you’ll feel them contract powerfully. The feeling can be strange—like you’re in the middle of an intense workout, though your body isn’t actually doing anything—but it shouldn’t hurt. In fact, some people find the feeling so unusual that they laugh.

How soon can i see results?

People who are relatively fit may see improvements after just one  treatment session.

After the recommended 6 sessions, good candidates should feel stronger and see more muscle tone and reduced fat in the treated areas, with the best results visible after three months.

Final results may take longer to appear, especially in areas with more fat. Building muscle takes time. We can’t go to the gym once and say we’re toned and strong. The muscle builds over the next couple of months. Apoptosis—the breakdown of fat cells—takes a couple of months to happen.

Additional sessions beyond the initial six won’t hurt, but they may not improve results either.

Results plateau after 6 sessions. Therefore, extra sessions will likely not increase the benefits of the treatment. You’re better off living a healthy lifestyle after your treatment series, and then possibly returning for maintenance treatments 3 months down the line.

How long do results last?

Your results will last as long as you maintain them with regular exercise and follow-up treatments every 3 months.

Just like with working out, if you stop going to the gym, your results won’t last.

What are the risks and potential side effects?

No side effects have been reported. However, you shouldn’t have this treatment if you’re pregnant; have a pacemaker or other implanted electronic device near the treatment site; or have heart issues, a history of seizures, or any other medical conditions that could make the device’s electromagnetic field dangerous for you.

Avoid Superself treatments if you have any type of metal, such as a copper IUD or a hip implant, near the treatment zone. The high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy of Superself can heat up the metal or dislodge it.
