If you want to learn more about Emsculpt and if it’s right for you, keep reading for frequently asked questions.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle for defined abs and lifted buttocks.

It’s a non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless way to reach your body goals, especially if diet and exercise have not produced desired effects.

How Does Emsculpt Burn Fat and Build Muscle?

During an Emsculpt treatment, electromagnetic waves force extremely powerful muscle contractions that cause muscle tissue to undergo intense remodeling and fat cells to burst and die.

In fact, a 30 minute Emsculpt procedure is the equivalent of 20,000 squats or crunches that produce dramatic fat reduction and muscle strengthening.

Does the Treatment Really Work?

In 7 independent U.S. based clinical studies, patients that had a series of 4 Emsculpt treatments experienced an average 19% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 16% increase in muscle mass.

How Long Does Emsculpt Take?

Each Emsculpt session takes just 30 minutes. Patients are comfortably reclined, as the device stimulates 3 different patterns of muscle contraction in the abdomen or buttocks.

Do I Need Multiple Sessions?

For optimal toning and fat destruction, a series of 4 Emsculpt treatments, spaced 2-3 days apart, is recommended.

Is Emsculpt Painful?

Emsculpt is an extremely comfortable procedure, and patients don’t feel much of anything. Some liken the sensation to an intense abdominal or gluteal workout, and you may notice mild and temporary muscle soreness the next day.

How Much Downtime?

There is zero downtime! You are free to resume normal activities immediately after Emsculpt, without any disruption to your busy schedule.

Is Emsculpt Right for Me?

Emsculpt is a safe and effective treatment for healthy men and women that want to achieve a leaner and more defined physique. Ideal candidates are already following a fitness regimen and have a Body Mass Index of 30 or below.

However, an in-person consultation with Dr. Hayre is the best way to determine if Emsculpt is right for you. Contact us online or call (703) 663-6238 today to schedule your appointment.
