The EMSCULPT® Difference
Get the body you’ve always wanted with the only procedure that helps build muscle and burn fat.
Current approaches to body contouring are various forms of circumferential reduction. However, your muscle structure plays an important role in overall body shape. The EMSCULPT goes a step beyond mere waistline reduction to tackle abdominal shape through muscle tone.
Muscles make up approximately 35% of the human body. Current body sculpting treatment methods address only fat. In contrast, the EMSCULPT builds muscle, which gives the abs or buttocks the desired shape, while also burning fat that makes them more visible. This gives you an overall slimmer, more toned appearance.
How Does EMSCULPT® Work?
A non-invasive body sculpting treatment, EMSCULPT uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to stimulate powerful muscle contractions that the body cannot achieve through voluntary contractions. No matter how hard you try and how many squats or crunches you do, you cannot contract your muscles hard enough to get the same result.
The EMSCULPT HIFEM technology penetrates the skin, impacting fat and muscle tissue. Once the magnetic energy reaches the muscle, it stimulates 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions and a rapid metabolic rate in the fat cells. This combination reduces fat while strengthening and building muscle.
These strong contractions create an extreme condition that forces the muscle tissue to adapt by getting stronger. This is the same mechanisms the same way working out causes your muscles to adapt, but with this process you build muscle fast.
EMSCULPT uses the only technology burns fat and builds muscle at the same time, while also leaving the surrounding tissue intact.
What Happens During an EMSCULPT® Session?
EMSCULPT treatment requires no advanced preparation. You just lie comfortably on a table, positioned face up to treat your abs or face down to treat your buttocks. Your aesthetician or physician will strap a rubber pad on the treatment area and begin the treatment.
At first, the device will be on the lowest setting. You’ll feel the targeted muscles powerfully contract as the high-intensity energy flows through them. During the next 30 minutes, an algorithm will guide the contractions. They will alternate between slow and powerful, or more rapid in pace. They will feel intense at first, but patients report that it only takes a few minutes to get used to the sensations.
As your treatment continues, the intensity will gradually increase, but will not go beyond your comfort level. As you get more used to the contractions, you will be able to start your treatment session at a higher setting.
Your session will take about 30 minutes, and when it ends, you’ll have done the equivalent of 20,000 squats or crunches, with no sweat, no pain, but tons of gain. Each session is fast, easy, and comfortable, with no downtime or recovery needed.
What Are the Benefits of EMSCULPT®?
With EMSCULPT you build muscle fast and get fat removal without surgery. After a few 30-minute sessions, you get the six-pack abs or the non-invasive butt lift you’ve always wanted. The treatments target muscle groups that are hard to isolate on your own. You can only accomplish so much with diet and exercise. EMSCULPT gets you the rest of the way.

EMSCULPT® Body Sculpting Cost
The cost can vary depending on the area you wish to have treated, and the number of sessions included in your plan. Your physician will go over the variables during your consultation.
Am I a Candidate?
Anyone can benefit from the EMSCULPT procedure. Ask your provider for more details.
What Is the Treatment Time?
Each session is 30 minutes, a treatment plan with a minimum of 4 sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart is recommended. Your provider will help you create a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.
What Does It Feel Like?
EMSCULPT sessions feel like intensive workouts of your abs or buttocks, depending on the area you choose. During the treatment, you lay down and relax while the technology does the work for you.
Is There Any Downtime? Any Pre/Post Treatment Preparation?
As a non-invasive treatment, the EMSCULPT requires no pre/post treatment preparation and involves no post-procedure downtime.
How Fast Will I See Results?
You begin to see and feel results immediately after treatment. Additional positive results are generally seen for approximately two to four weeks after the last treatment session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.
How Long Will EMSCULPT Results Last?
Your results will last as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise reasonably, keep your weight stable, and have periodic maintenance sessions, about every three to six months.
What Are the Potential Side Effects or Risks of EMCSCULPT?
There are no risks or side effects reported at this time. You should not use EMSCULPT if you have any metal or electronics, such as pacemakers, inside your body, as it could heat up or short-circuit these devices.
