Non-surgical body contouring has grown in popularity because it’s safe, quick, and effective: in short, it works. If you’re looking for a way to contour your body without spending extra time in the gym, overhauling your diet, or depleting your energy levels, EMSCULPT is a perfect solution. This device is FDA-approved to target problem areas, decrease fat, and build muscle without requiring that patients plan around any downtime or discomfort.

How Does EMSCULPT Work?

EMSCULPT is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses high-intensity, focused electromagnetic energy to force the muscles in the treatment area into supramaximal contractions. These powerful contractions are so intense that they cannot be achieved voluntarily. The brain could never tell the muscles to contract the way this device can, which is why it can effectively tighten and tone different muscle groups without causing you to even break a sweat.

The Treatment Process

During treatment, the device will force your muscles to contract to the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or lunges. The HIFEM energy will be emitted from the device applicator directly to your muscles, causing them to contract throughout the 30-minute session. You’ll feel intense contractions followed by a period of rest throughout the session.

The treatment sessions will strengthen, tighten, and tone your muscles while increasing muscle mass and burning fat. While it is primarily designed to tone and build muscle, it can also destroy fat cells in the area by breaking down the contents of the cells, which are then released as free fatty acids, metabolized by the body, and eliminated as waste via the lymphatic system.

What Areas Can It Treat?

This body contouring treatment is versatile and can target several different muscle groups. Patients can undergo treatment to tighten and tone muscles and reduce stubborn fat on the abdomen, legs, buttocks, and arms. The device has different applicators that can effectively treat smaller and larger areas of the body. Patients can treat one area or multiple to achieve their body contouring goals.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A typical treatment protocol includes approximately four treatments, with two to three days between each over two weeks. Treatment plans vary based on each patient’s target treatment area and goals. When you schedule an initial consultation to learn more about this treatment, your body contouring technician can help you schedule your sessions accordingly to ensure you achieve the best results.

Can It Be Combined With Other Body Contouring Treatments?

This treatment pairs well with other body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting Elite, which is designed to destroy stubborn fat cells permanently using freezing temperatures. It can also be combined with skin-tightening microneedling treatments for maximized results.

When Can I Expect To See the Results?

You’ll start to see some initial results after your first few treatments, and they’ll improve over time as your body responds and builds muscle while reducing stubborn fat. Patients can expect up to a 19% decrease in stubborn fat and a 16% increase in muscle after completing the recommended number of sessions.

How Long Will My Results Last?

This body contouring device is intended to help patients achieve long-lasting results. When it forces the body to break down stubborn fat cells, your body will not regrow or replace them. Once you achieve improved muscle definition, you can expect long-lasting results if you continue to live a healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly to avoid muscle atrophy and eat a healthy diet to avoid weight gain.

Is the Treatment Painful?

This treatment is pain-free. Not only is it quick, but there’s also no discomfort. You can expect some intense contractions during the treatment, followed by a period of rest. You won’t need any numbing cream to tolerate the treatment, and afterward, you’ll just feel as if you’d had a strenuous workout at the gym.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for this body contouring treatment are patients in good health looking for a simple, safe solution to improve muscle definition and reduce stubborn fat. Patients should be healthy, live an active lifestyle, and be committed to regular exercise and a healthy diet to ensure the best results.


An initial consultation is the first step in this treatment process, as it can help confirm whether this device is right for you. Then, the technician can design a customized treatment plan to target one or more body areas and help you fine-tune your physique.

Thanks to all the advancements in body contouring treatments, you can now achieve your ideal physique without spending hours in the gym or reducing your caloric intake. If you want to tighten and tone your body, build muscle, and reduce stubborn fat, whether that’s in preparation for a special event or simply to get one step closer to your body goals, this device can help you safely initiate a body transformation that you can enjoy long-term.
