Until now, non-invasive body contouring procedures have focused on excess fat, while ignoring muscle. Fortunately, Emsculpt has addressed this deficiency and is the first FDA-approved treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle for a leaner and more toned physique. 

It also firms and lifts the buttocks, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime, and is the world’s only non-surgical butt lift.

If you’ve hit a plateau in your fitness regimen or are tired of diets, crunches, and squats, Emsculpt may be right for you.

Here’s what you need to know about burning fat and building muscle with this revolutionary procedure.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt is a completely non-invasive, non-thermal, and non-ionizing treatment that applies high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to the surface of the skin.

This energy then initiates a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions that feel like 20,000 crunches or squats.

Finally, these forced contractions cause the simultaneous release of free fatty acids and muscle growth.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With Emsculpt?

Currently, Emsculpt is FDA-approved for use on the abdomen and buttocks. However, additional areas may be treated off-label at a provider’s discretion.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is an excellent treatment for anyone that wants to slim, firm, and tighten their abdomen and buttocks.

It’s especially helpful for patients that have been unable to achieve their body goals through diet and exercise or other body contouring modalities.

Additionally, individuals that are unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure like a Brazilian Butt Lift or Mommy Makeover should consider Emsculpt as a safe and effective alternative.

Is There Any Recovery After an Emsculpt Treatment?

There is absolutely no downtime after an Emsculpt treatment. Each session lasts 30 minutes and is described as painless by most patients.

You are free to resume your day as you normally would and may feel some slight soreness the next day, similar to after an intense workout.

How Many Sessions Are Recommended?

For optimal results, a series of 4 sessions spaced 2-3 days apart is recommended.  Results can be noted within 2-4 weeks and peak at 3 months.
