Burn Fat and Build Muscle In As Little As 30 Minutes

Burn Fat and Build Muscle In As Little As 30 Minutes

Emsculpt® is a revolutionary body-contouring treatment. It is the first procedure of its kind to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat. This treatment is completely non-invasive and can be done in as little as 30 minutes with no downtime and no discomfort.

Emsculpt contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. These results are backed by 7 clinical studies, showing fat loss as well as defined and sculpted muscles to the abdomen and buttocks following a series of 4 treatments.

How Does It Work?

This procedure targets problem areas, by using high-intensity focused electro-magnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate the muscle contractions. These contractions stimulate muscle growth and burn unwanted fat, producing the desired results. This stimulation is said to mimic the effect of 20,000 squats/sit-ups in each 30-minute session.

Who Is the Right Candidate?

Emsculpt is a treatment that helps with muscle building and fat loss, not weight loss. Thus, the ideal candidate should be someone within 10-20 lbs. of their goal weight, with a BMI of 30 or below. The ideal patient is in good shape and looking for more definition of the abdomen or lifting of the buttocks.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

A series of four weekly treatments is recommended to see visible results. Each individual treatment is 30 minutes long. This can vary depending on the treated area, treated indication, and other factors.

What Does the Treatment Feel Like? Is It Painful?

No, the treatment should not be painful. The Emsculpt procedure feels like an intensive workout. You can lie down and relax during the treatment.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect To See?

Patients in many clinical studies have reported excellent clinical outcomes.

Are There Any Side Effects Or Contraindications?

Emsculpt is a safe, effective and clinically studied treatment. However, because of the nature of the electromagnetic waves, it is not suitable for patients with metal IUDs, implanted defibrillators, drug pumps, pacemakers, and other metal implants. Patients who have malignant tumors, as well as patients who are pregnant or nursing should not undergo the treatment. Please discuss your medical history with your Emsculpt provider at your visit.

How Fast Will I See Results?

You may begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported after four sessions and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.
