What Is EMSculpt?
For most people, diet or exercise isn’t enough to help them reach their fitness goals. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle or hormones can get in the way. This makes it hard to eliminate unwanted fat or build muscle in common problem areas like the abdomen, thighs or buttocks. EMSCULPT is an FDA-cleared body contouring device that takes the guesswork out of the equation, using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to sculpt leaner, fitter muscles in these hard-to-tone areas.
EMSCULPT works by causing muscles within a targeted treatment area to have supramaximal contractions, which help improve tone and strength. More precisely, EMSCULPT goes above and beyond what you can achieve through voluntary exercise and delivers the equivalent of 20,000 crunches of squats during one 30-minute treatment session. This intensity surpasses even the most intense workout routine and delivers proven results, increasing muscle mass by an average of 16 percent.
This also kicks off a process within the body called lipolysis, which breaks down and eventually gets rid of locally stored fat cells. In addition, these supramaximal contractions help build muscle while flushing lactic acid out of the body, providing immediate and lasting results with no downtime or recovery.
Who Can Benefit From EMSculpt Treatment?
EMSCULPT has become a sought-after treatment for athletes, celebrities, and everyday people to kickstart a new fitness regimen or boost an existing one. It is especially helpful for those who are looking to shed those last few pounds or contour common problem areas like the arms, legs or abdomen. The benefits of EMSCULPT treatments are apparent immediately, but full results may take up to four weeks to develop. With a personalized treatment schedule and careful planning, EMSCULPT can help you get ready for swimsuit season, a photoshoot or any event where you want to look your best.
EMSCULPT can also help speed up the recovery time for certain injuries and reduce pain associated with them. Because of this, it is commonly used in conjunction with physical therapy. In addition, EMSCULPT treatments can help patients suffering from diastasis recti (abdominal separation), a condition that often occurs during pregnancy, by reducing the gaps in the abdominal muscles and improving muscle tone.
EMSCULPT is a great alternative to more invasive body contouring techniques, such as liposuction, a tummy tuck or butt implant surgery. Some of the other major benefits of EMSCULPT are that it can help to:
- Burn fat
- Reduce pain
- Improve posture around joints
- Build muscle
EMSCULPT treatment can help shape, lift, and tone muscles in the following regions of the body:
EMSCULPT is not recommended for women who are pregnant and it is not safe for patients who have metal pieces (e.g., plates or screws), medical devices (such as a pacemaker), or an IUD (intrauterine device for birth control) in their body. EMSCULPT treatments should not be used as a replacement for diet and exercise, but rather as a complement to a regular fitness routine.

What Should I Expect During EMSculpt Treatment?
EMSCULPT is a non-surgical and completely non-invasive treatment, so there’s nothing specific you’ll need to do to prepare for your treatment, and there’s no recovery time required afterward. However, EMSCULPT is not a weight loss procedure, and it works best on patients who are at or near their fitness goals, so it’s recommended that you are close to your ideal weight before beginning treatment to enjoy the most noticeable results.
EMSCULPT treatments are known for being quick, comfortable and easy. Treatment sessions last for approximately 30 minutes, and patients can relax while the device stimulates muscle contractions using HIFEM® technology. During your treatment, you’ll be asked to lie down on a table and the paddles will be placed on the area you want to target. You will not need to disrobe completely. Then the EMSCULPT device paddles will be secured using a band that wraps around the body and Velcro into place to ensure an accurate treatment.
You will experience three phases of muscle contractions that become progressively more intense during your 30-minute session. The maximum level of intensity will depend on your level of comfort. You’ll be able to see and feel your muscles contracting as the device works, but it doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. It is often compared to a “pulling” sensation and may feel like an intense workout, but without the sweat. Most patients bring a book to read or listen to muscle during their treatment sessions. Depending on your needs, your clinician will create a personalized treatment plan to help you meet your fitness goals, but a minimum of four sessions spread out over a couple of weeks is typically recommended.
How Long Will It Take to See EMSculpt Results?
EMSCULPT works to improve your muscle tone and definition from the inside out, so your results will enhance and contour your body without looking fake or overdone. Most patients notice an improvement immediately after their EMSCULPT treatments, but more obvious results will develop in the weeks following your last session. Improvements will continue for up to six months. How quickly your results develop and how long they last are partially dependent on your starting fitness level and whether or not you maintain a regular exercise program after your treatment. Those who are near an ideal weight or BMI will often notice more dramatic results sooner.
The average patient can achieve an average 16 percent increase in muscle mass after just four EMSCULPT treatments, along with a 19 percent decrease in unwanted body fat and a 1.5-inch reduction in waist circumference. While EMSCULPT results are long-lasting, you can maintain your strong, toned muscles and slimmer contours by continuing to work out targeted muscle groups on a regular basis after your treatment sessions have been completed. EMSCULPT builds off the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle, so treatments work best and deliver the most dramatic results when combined with diet and exercise.
