We all have those stubborn problem areas that we can’t get to budget, regardless of how often we’re working out or how disciplined our diet is. Usually, with enough time and dedication to a healthy lifestyle, many of these small changes will result in small definitions to our body to improve muscle development and decrease fat, but when all else fails, what’s the solution?
Each person is built differently, and genetics can get in the way of progress, no matter how hard we work! Some areas of the body are more prone to resist change—even with strenuous workouts—such as our abdomen, buttocks, arms, and thighs. If diet and exercise have not worked for you in these areas, EmSculpt treatment may be able to achieve the results you have always wanted.
EmSculpt is an FDA-approved technique in the field of cosmetic treatment that both reduces the volume of fat deposits and simultaneously tones the underlying muscles using a technique inspired by the body itself. While crunches, sit-ups, and squats are generally helpful at toning muscles by increasing the metabolism and forcing muscles to contract regularly, EmSculpt works under the same theory at a highly-increased rate of action. Using electromagnetic waves, an attending physician can direct this high-intensity energy towards a patient’s most problematic areas of the body, inducing muscle contractions to achieve the desired results.
As the muscles contract rapidly, fat cells are forced to disappear, and muscles are encouraged to tighten up. Over the course of multiple sessions, this effect leaves patients with fewer fat cells and a more toned appearance. In fact, a single 30-minute EmSculpt session is equivalent to doing over 20,000 sit-ups or squats at the gym! Patients are thrilled with the fact that they can receive the same results from the comfort of an attending physician’s office, and address parts of their body that have been unresponsive to regular diet and exercise.
Over the course of several sessions, EmSculpt provides visible results that include increased abdominal muscle definition, less low belly fat, and a more defined waistline.EmSculpt can treat the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. EmSculpt is administered with a hand-held device that is run over the surface of the skin for the duration of treatment. The electromagnetic waves of varying lengths and increasing intensity provide a gradual increase in muscle contraction over the course of the 30-minute period, causing the body to burn fat and increase muscle tone. It’s common for your body to continue this higher level of fat burning for several weeks after treatment, meaning you’ll continue to see results even as your last session is completed.
The beauty of EmSculpt is that it is virtually painless. You will be able to sit back as the machine does all the hard work for you – without any pain! Individuals will feel muscle soreness the next day, typical of the soreness after a rigorous workout. This subsides within a few days, and patients can return to most of their normal daily activities after leaving the office post-treatment.
Many patients report feeling more toned after their first session, however, dramatic and visible results are generally seen in the 2-4 weeks following a session as fat cells continue to disappear, and muscles continue to tone up. Patients looking for long-term results after undergoing EmSculpt will find that their toned and sculpted physique is likely to remain that way with the continued commitment to diet and exercise. Many patients choose to continue regular sessions in order to improve their overall appearance for years to come.
EmSculpt treatment takes about 30 minutes, so you can be in and out of the office on your lunch break. The HIFEM or high-intensity focused electromagnet helps your muscles contract thousands of times. Your abdominal and gluteal muscles will be strengthened, toned, and become firm all in a single session. The gym cannot do that!
Most patients will start to see the results from their EmSculpt treatment in as little as 3 to 4 weeks. Unlike many other non-invasive body contouring treatments on the market today, EmSculpt is deemed safe by the FDA through rigorous clinical testing. Other procedures also produce unwanted side effects that can take weeks to subside. Not with EmSculpt, as you can receive contouring results without any redness, swelling, or bruising. You will be able to show off that body right away! You can find that backside you have always wanted without invasive techniques with EmSculpt. It is a great alternative to surgery and injections. With EmSculpt being non-invasive, you will not have to worry about any pre-planning. Instead, schedule your free consultation and see what results in you can expect.
While EmSculpt is designed as a treatment option for reducing fat and toning muscle, it is important to note that it is not a solution for significant weight loss.
The ideal EmSculpt candidate will be close to their ideal BMI prior to undergoing treatment of any kind and already adhere to diet and exercise on a daily basis. Similarly, EmSculpt is not an ideal solution for patients who are pregnant, have a history of seizures or heart issues, or struggle with hernias. Those who have recently undergone surgery of any type are not ideal candidates for EmSculpt.
Many patients are drawn to EmSculpt as a cosmetic solution for its highly safe and extremely effective results. This outpatient procedure does not require a patient to book a hospital stay or run any of the risks associated with the use of general anesthesia or a long recovery period. In fact, EmSculpt comes with no downtime whatsoever, and at most, patients report a tightened feeling in the treatment area after their session is complete.
Patients looking for long-term results after undergoing EmSculpt will find that their toned and sculpted physique is likely to remain that way with the continued commitment to diet and exercise. Many patients choose to continue regular sessions in order to improve their overall appearance for years to come.

Please note: While EmSculpt is designed as a treatment option for toning muscle and reducing up to 20% of fat in a target area and CoolSculpting for reducing fat, it is important to note that neither is a solution for significant weight loss. The ideal EmSculpt or CoolSculpting candidate will be close to their ideal BMI prior to undergoing treatment of any kind and already adheres to diet and exercise on a daily basis. Similarly, neither EmSculpt nor CoolSculpting are ideal solutions for patients who are pregnant, have a history of seizures or heart issues or struggle with hernias. Those who have recently undergone surgery of any type are not ideal candidates for EmSculp or CoolSculpting.
