About EMSCULPT Body Contouring

EMSCULPT is a non-invasive device that is used to build and sculpt abdominal and buttock muscles. It is the first FDA approved device of its kind, and uses cutting edge HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic) therapy to cause 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes.

emsculpt-butt-liftEMSCULPT is used to improve abdominal tone, strengthen muscles, develop a firmer and more toned abdomen, and strengthen, tone, and firm the buttocks. This technology also causes a 20% fat reduction in the area which provides an improved result. EMSCULPT has also been reported to result in a 10% reduction of rectus diastasis, or separation of the rectus abdominis muscles, which commonly occurs as a result of pregnancy and childbirth.

Ideal Candidates for EMSCULPT

Ideal candidates for EMSCULPT are patients who follow a healthy diet and lifestyle and are engaged in physical activity, and interested in improving the appearance of their abdomen and buttocks beyond what their own healthy lifestyle can accomplish. Some patients may have a thicker layer of abdominal fat overlying their muscles and may benefit from liposuction prior to treatment with EMSCULPT so that the improved muscle definition and contour is more visible.

EMSCULPT Treatment

There is no downtime following treatment with EMSCULPT. The recommended treatment schedule is a 30-minute treatment with a minimum of 4 sessions, scheduled approximately 2-3 days apart.


The treatment consists of the device paddle being strapped to the abdomen or buttock for 30 minutes. Patients can comfortably watch television or read a magazine during the treatment. The session consists of a series of muscle contractions followed by gentle ‘tapping’ which helps break up lactic acid buildup that occurs normally when a muscle is exercised. There is no downtime and patients return to their routine activity following the session. It is advised to continue a healthy diet and exercise regimen for the best possible results.


Results from EMSCULPT are felt immediately after each session. Definitive results are usually reported two to four weeks following the last treatment session and continue to improve for several weeks after. Optimal results can be maintained by continuing a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise and completing additional EMSCULPT sessions every 2-3 months.
