Emsculpt Body Contouring
WHAT IS EMSCULPT ?
Emsculpt body contouring is the first non-invasive treatment that sculpts the body by building muscle and burning fat. This treatment utilizes HIFEM technology, also known as High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic technology causing supra-maximal muscle contractions which tone muscle and increasing muscle metabolism
INDICATIONS FOR EMSCULPT BODY CONTOURING
Emsculpt body contouring is indicated for the improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, creating a firmer, fitter appearing abdomen. Additionally, muscle tone and strength improvements can also be targeted to the buttocks, thighs, calves, and arms.
THE BODY CONTOURING PROCEDURE
The Emsculpt procedure takes approximately 30 minutes per treatment. To begin, the applicator is placed over the area of interest. As mentioned above, the treatment area options include the abdomen, arms, butt, and thighs. The device is then activated initiating the muscle contractions. The treatment consists of a series of slow, quick contraction, followed by intense, sustained contractions, also know as Supra Maximal Muscle Contractions. Once the Emsculpt treatment is done there is no downtime and no recovery period and you may resume your normal day to day activities. In cases where the patient has extra fat over the Emsculpt treatment areas, we often combine the treatment with Sculpsure for optimal results. This can be performed during the same session or at future date.
HOW EMSCULPT WORKS
HOW MANY EMSCULPT TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
It is recommended that patients undergo 3 to 5 Emsculpt treatments, with 2-3 day intervals, for best results. Additionally, I advise my patients to have a robust and regular workout regimen. Doing so will maximize the results seen with Emsculpt treatments, while improving your overall health at the same time – which, should be the overall goal when considering this treatment.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS ?
Visible results can be seen immediately after the treatment. You will continue to see improvements in the days following the treatments, and typically two to four weeks following the last treatment, with continued improvement seen in the subsequent weeks.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EMSCULPT ?
The benefits of Emsculpt include improving muscle tone which will create a firmer and fitter appearing physique.

WILL EMSCULPT ENHANCE MY EXERCISE ROUTINE ?
The Emsculpt Body Contouring treatment may enhance your regular exercise routine; however, Emsculpt is not intended to replace a regular exercise routine, which has innumerable health benefits including lowering your blood pressure, improving your state of mind, and increasing longevity, just to name a few. Before considering any exercise routine, always consult with your physician first to make sure you are healthy enough to proceed. If you don’t have a primary physician, our office can refer you to reputable primary care physicians in your area.
