WHAT IS EMSCULPT?
Emsculpt is a revolutionary new body sculpting procedure that lifts and tones without the use of surgery. In fact, the process is completely non-invasive. By building muscle and reducing unwanted fat at the same time, patients who choose this treatment can enjoy a noticeably more defined abdomen or rear. Emsculpt is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their bodies.
HOW DOES EMSCULPT WORK?
While most other body contouring treatments simply targeting unwanted fat, Emsculpt works uniquely by targeting both fat and muscle. The process works by directing HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) to the area, forcing the muscles to contract in a way that is not possible through exercise. In response to these contractions, the muscle reconstructs itself, and fat in the area begins to melt away more easily. You can see these intense muscle contractions in the video below. This intensity is why each 30-minute treatment is a “workout” for the muscles that delivers the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or squats.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
As with many of our treatments, we first require a complimentary consultation with one of our providers. She will assess your goals and match you with the ideal treatment.
During your procedure, you are laying down comfortably on a bed. If your treatment is for the abdomen, you will be laying on your back. If the buttocks are your target area, you will lay on your stomach. Your provider will adjust the straps that hold the applicators to your body. Next, she will place either one applicator on your abdomen or two on your buttock, one on each side. Finally, she will turn on the Emsculpt machine, beginning the treatment process. As you adjust to the applicator and the feeling of the muscle contraction, she will be able to adjust the settings on the machine, controlling the intensity of the treatment.
During your 30-minute treatment, Emsculpt vigorously contracts the targeted muscle area, alternating those contractions with a lactic acid flush cycle. This flush alleviates the aching and soreness we typically associate with a strenuous workout. Patients have reported that the Emsculpt procedure feels like an intensive workout and some experienced mild discomfort the next day. A single Emsculpt treatment is the equivalent of doing approximately 20,000 squats or crunches.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
Our recommendation is to begin with a series of four Emsculpt sessions scheduled 1-3 days apart. You will begin to feel tangible results after your treatment and positive results are usually reported a couple of weeks after the last session. Afterward, you can schedule a maintenance treatment every six months to maintain your results. However, your provider may recommend that you come sooner.
Results are most effective when you are already in good shape but desire more definition in your muscle tone. Emsculpt is not a fat reduction treatment, but rather a sculpting treatment that helps define and tone muscles. However, research has shown it can help with fat:

“My posture is better and I can actually feel my abs pulling in even when I’m sitting! I’m usually slouching but not anymore. I also hate to do core exercises at the gym, but after Emsculpt, I did some and it was so much easier because my core muscles are so much stronger!” Female age 50-55 Treatment area – abdomen
“I could feel a difference in the waist of my scrubs, jeans, and workout pants after the second treatment, even more so after the last treatment. My abs feel tighter and look as if I am pulling them in when I’m relaxed.” Female age 40-45 Treatment area – abdomen
