EmSculpt is a completely non-invasive cosmetic treatment to build and improve muscle tone in prominent areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. Dr. Nazemi answers some of the frequently asked questions from patients regarding EmSculpt.
What are the benefits of EmSculpt treatment?
If you wish to have a toned and sculpted figure without an extreme gym and diet regimen, EmSculpt can deliver dramatic benefits for you. A single EmSculpt treatment session of 30 minutes will have an impact of up to 20,000 squats or sit ups. It will tighten, define, and tone up your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, love handles (flanks), calves, and biceps. In fact, EmSculpt is now recognized as the world’s first and only non-invasive buttock lift.
How does EmSculpt treatment work?
EmSculpt utilizes the power of HIFEM electromagnetic energy to supra-maximally induce strong and rapid muscle contractions in the targeted areas. With a series of 4 in-office treatments of 30 minutes each performed twice a week, you can achieve more effective muscle toning, fat reduction and muscle build-up results than a workout at the gym.
Are the results of EmSculpt device clinically proven?
EmSculpt is an FDA cleared device with proven safety and efficacy. As many as 7 clinical studies have shown measurable results with this treatment. Researchers reported the following results after four treatment sessions with EmSculpt:
- Muscle mass increased by 16%
- Excess fat deposits reduced by 19%
- Separated abdominal muscles improved by 11%
- Average patient satisfaction rate was 96%
What happens during an in-office EmSculpt session?
While you relax in a comfortable EmSculpt chair, our trained treatment provider will place the device over the targeted area. They will operate the device at a custom setting to meet your treatment goals. You will experience intense and rapid muscle contractions interspersed with soothing sensations to tone and sculpt the affected area for about 30 minutes. You can return to your normal daily return or go back to work after the treatment.
Does the EmSculpt treatment cause pain?
EmSculpt treatments are not painful, but you can expect physical stimulation equivalent to an intensive gym workout. Our treatment expert will select the appropriate power settings and adjust them according to your desired comfort levels. With each treatment session, you will progressively feel more comfortable. Consider EmSculpt to be a workout minus the breathlessness and sweat.
When can I expect to see the results?
You will experience a tangible improvement in your treated areas after the first session itself. Optimal results will be visible in about two months after your treatment program is completed. As long as you maintain a diet and fitness regimen, the results will continue to improve over time. The treatment goal is to build new muscle mass, which increases the longevity of results. You may consider maintenance treatments every six months to extend the aesthetic benefits of EmSculpt.
Am I a candidate for EmSculpt treatment?
Women and men above the age of 18 who wish to improve muscle tone and reduce subcutaneous fat in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and buttocks are usually excellent candidates for EmSculpt. The ideal candidate would have a moderate body weight and be committed to a healthy and active lifestyle. Pregnant or nursing women or people with implanted devices, serious heart or lung conditions, or hernia mesh repair should avoid EmSculpt.
