WHAT IS EMSCULPT®?
EmSculpt® may seem too good to be true, but this thoroughly tested procedure works. Cleared by the FDA for the improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of abdominal muscles and strengthening, toning and firming of the buttocks, EmSculpt® is unlike any other body contouring technology on the market. And there’s no downtime of course. Receive the unprecedented benefits of EmSculpt® from your specialty-trained plastic surgery office, not just any medspa.
The idea of toning the body through electronic muscle stimulation is not a new one, but the technology to do it effectively has not been available until now. Emsculpt® utilizes High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) energy that stimulates muscles beyond what you would be able to achieve even with a personal trainer. A 30-minute EmSculpt® session produces nearly 20,000 muscle contractions. Repeated contractions without rest stresses the muscles triggering rapid changes at the cellular level that make them grow bigger and stronger.
To supply energy for so many muscle contractions, neighboring fat cells break down, via a process called lipolysis and releases fatty acids. Fat cells are damaged to the point where they die and are then naturally eliminated by the body.
EmSculpt® treatments are performed lying down. Paddle-like applicators are applied to the body and the 30-minute treatment begins. The feeling can be a bit strange — like you’re in the middle of an intense workout, but it is not painful. In fact, most people find the feeling so unusual that they laugh during the process.
These contractions will cycle through different phases. Some are rapid and light while others are slow and powerful. As the 30 minutes continue, your provider will gradually increase the intensity.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME?
During treatment, the device flushes out toxins and lactic acid that has been produced. So, even though you’ve done the equivalent of 20,000 situps patients do not feel like they have done 20,000 situps afterward. There is literally zero downtime after the treatment.
WHAT RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE?
Patients experience tighter, more toned muscles as well as fat loss.* In clinical studies, patients saw a 19% reduction of fat and a 16% increase in muscle mass.* Further, patients who originally were not happy with the shape of their buttocks reported an 85% improvement after four treatments, noting that their butt felt more lifted and firm.*
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You should expect to see positive results from the procedure within 2-4 weeks after your last treatment.
HOW MUCH DOES EMSCULPT COST?
You should expect to pay between $3000 to $4000 for your complete EmSculpt® series. If you find it easier to pay for these sessions over a longer period of time, we can recommend credit services like CareCredit and Alphaeon that can help you arrange to spread out the cost over convenient monthly payments. Many of our patients will choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest.
To date, no side effects have been reported from EmSculpt® treatment. However, you should not receive this treatment if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker or other implanted electronic devices, have heart issues, seizures or other medical conditions that could make the device’s electromagnetic field dangerous for you.
