How Does EMSCULPT Work?

EMSCULPT utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM), which works by inducing supramaximal muscle contractions. Supramaximal contractions are forced muscle contractions at a rate of approximately 20,000 contractions per EMSCULPT session, something you could never achieve naturally. This causes the targeted muscle tissue to respond in two ways – with hyperplasia (the increase in the production of cells) and hypertrophy (the volumetric growth of the muscle). As the muscle builds, it releases free fatty acids, which destroy fat cells. An additional benefit is that the more muscle you build, the more efficiently your body will burn excess fat.

What Makes EMSCULPT Different?

There are several ways to perform nonsurgical body contouring – some technologies freeze fat cells, while others melt them. Still other devices use energy derived from ultrasound or radiofrequency waves. While these may be successful ways to decrease fat in targeted areas, what none of those treatments address is the other contributor to a sculpted body – the muscles. Our body weight consists of 30-40 percent muscle, 25-30 percent fat and 16 percent skin. Some body contouring treatments solely address fat, while some address both fat and skin. But none address muscle, which is a vital piece of the contouring puzzle. EMSCULPT does just that – it not only works on those of us struggling with excess fat, but also those who look fit overall, and just want a bit more muscle definition.

What Are the Benefits of EMSCULPT?

The most obvious advantage to EMSCULPT is that it is the only body contouring procedure that is proven to help both men and women to lose fat and build muscle. In fact, the average fat loss in EMSCULPT patients is 19 percent, and the average increase in EMSCULPT mass is 16 percent. Some of the other advantages include:

  • Up to 11 percent improvement in diastasis recti – a condition (often experienced after pregnancy)
  • The first available non-invasive butt lift
  • FDA-approved and tested for safety and effectiveness
  • A completely painless treatment with no downtime for recovery and no side effects

The Science Is Why People Are

The efficacy and safety have been tested by reputable scientific method (MRI, CT, US, and Histology). In seven (7) independent multi-center studies across the United States.

What Can YOU Expect?

Each EMSCULPT treatment lasts only 30 minutes, and sessions are typically scheduled every three to four days. Sharon Giese, MD will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan so that you will know how many sessions you need to achieve your desired results. During the treatment, you can rest and relax. Afterward, you may feel a bit of soreness, similar to if you had done an intense workout. You will begin to see some results after your final treatment, with more visible results within two to four weeks. Those results will continue to improve over the next six months, and you can choose to undergo more EMSCULPT sessions if you wish to contour your body further.
