What Is Emsculpt & How Does it Work?
Emsculpt, a body contouring treatment, stimulates your muscles to burn fat and tone the body. High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) pulses significantly contract the muscles rapidly and repeatedly triggering what is referred to as supramaximal contractions. These pulses are much more rapid and frequent than a person can achieve through traditional exercise.
The Emsculpt Treatment
A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes. Using specialized applicators, the Emsculpt device transmits electromagnetic energy to the targeted muscles. After patients are in comfortable position, the energy is applied at a lower setting and increases until it reaches the upper therapeutic range.
During the treatment phase Emsculpt sends high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy into the muscle causing it to contract. This sensation may seem a little prickly at first, as the contractions begin and the body accommodates to them.
The machine cycles through different phases- some contractions will be rapid and light, and others are more intense. intermittently, a series of mild shock waves are applied to help flush out the lactic acid from the muscles, reducing post treatment soreness.
Patients can resume all regular activities immediately after their treatment session.
What’s Recovery Like After Emsculpt
After each treatment, the body begins to rebuild and remodel the treated muscle and your muscles may feel slightly fatigued the following day. Patients can resume regular activity, including exercise, immediately with no needed downtime.
Emsculpt Results: What to Expect
Studies of this treatment have shown increased muscle mass and reduction in adipose tissue for treated patients. One study showed an increase in muscle mass of about 17% and fat reduction of approximately 19%. This equating to a stronger inner core and smaller waist line or higher, tighter glutes.
Results take time to manifest. Emsculpt patients may see early results after a few days with the peak results occurring two to three months after treatment. This all given life style remains the same or improves.

Several treatments in close succession are recommended to achieve optimal results from Emsculpt. We suggest that patients start with four to six treatments and maintain results with a follow-up treatment every six months.
Emsculpt should not be not be uncomfortable. After treatment, patients may experience some slight soreness, similar to after an intense workout. This side effect should fade within 24 hours of treatment.
Emsculpt requires no downtime or missed work. Patients can resume their regular daily activities, including exercise, immediately.
Emsculpt and liposuction are both body contouring treatments, but they work very differently. Liposuction surgically removes fat cells through a small incision using suction. Conversely, Emsculpt burns fat and tones the muscles using a non-surgical approach. With Emsculpt, electromagnetic energy stimulates muscle contractions, which build muscle tone and burn fat. Unlike liposuction, Emsculpt is non-surgical and non-invasive.
This treatment is a good fit for many of our patients. We find that the best results develop on patients who live a healthy lifestyle and are close to their ideal weight but seek to build muscle and refine their body shape. Schedule a consultation or contact our office to find out if Emsculpt is a good fit for you.
Emsculpt is not a weight-loss treatment. It was created to tone and shape the body, not drop pounds. Some patients may experience weight loss after their procedure, but this is not expected or required to see results. Many patients find their Emsculpt results are very motivating, encouraging them to eat better and exercise more frequently, which may result in post-treatment weight loss.
Exilis Ultra is another option available to our patients. Emsculpt is ideal for tightening and toning muscle, while Exilis focuses on fat reduction and skin tightening. Our skilled technicians and medical staff can help you choose the most suitable option for your body type and goals. Many patients choose both procedures for exceptional results.
