What is EmSculpt?

EMSCULPT is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to induce supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. These contractions are designed to stimulate muscle growth while simultaneously burning fat cells in the targeted area. The result is increased muscle mass and decreased fat cells, leading to a more toned and defined appearance.

What Areas Can EmSculpt Treat?

Our EmSculpt in Beverly Hills & Santa Monica can be used on many different areas of the body, including: 

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Legs 

It can also help reduce stubborn fat deposits around the waistline or other areas of concern. Additionally, EmSculpt can help improve posture by strengthening core muscles that support good posture.

What are the Benefits of EmSculpt?

The benefits of EmSculpt include the following:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Improved definition in treated areas
  • Improved posture due to strengthened core muscles
  • Reduced fat deposits around treated areas
  • Enhanced overall appearance with no downtime or recovery period required after treatment sessions
  • EmSculpt has been proven safe for all skin types 
  • No known side effects have been reported from patients who have undergone treatment sessions 

What Should I Expect During My Emsculpt Procedure?

The procedure consists of 30 minutes of HIFEM stimulation delivered through a handheld device placed directly onto the skin overlying targeted muscle groups. During this time, patients may experience mild discomfort. Still, they should not feel pain during their session as EmSculpt does not require any needles or incisions like traditional liposuction procedures. Patients typically require four treatments spaced two weeks apart for optimal results; however, individual results may vary depending on each patient’s unique needs and goals for their treatment plan.

What is the Recovery with EmSculpt?

No downtime or recovery period is required after your EmSculpt in Beverly Hills & Santa Monica. Patients may resume normal activities immediately following their session without restrictions or limitations. Some patients may experience mild soreness in treated areas for up to 48 hours after treatment; however, this should subside within this timeframe without any additional intervention.

Am I a good Candidate for EmSculpt?

Anyone looking to build muscle mass while simultaneously reducing stubborn fat deposits around targeted areas may benefit from undergoing an EmSculpt treatment plan. However, pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should avoid EmSculpt until they have finished nursing.

EmSculpt FAQs 

When considering EmSculpt as a body-sculpting option, there are a few frequently asked questions that you should consider.

How do I know if EmSculpt is safe?

EmSculpt is an FDA-approved body sculpting procedure that uses HIFEM technology to create intense muscle contractions. These contractions help to build muscle and reduce fat in targeted areas of the body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs.

How does HIFEM work?

The HIFEM energy stimulates intense muscle contractions during each treatment session. These contractions cause the muscles to become more muscular and toned while also helping reduce fat in the treated area. The number of treatments needed will vary depending on your individual goals but typically range from four to six sessions over two weeks.

Is there any downtime associated with EmSculpt?

No downtime is associated with this procedure, so that you can resume normal activities immediately after each session. You may experience some soreness or tenderness in the treated area, but this should subside within 24 hours after treatment.

Does EmSculpt hurt?

EmSculpt does not hurt. During each session, you will feel intense muscle contractions and a slight tingling sensation throughout the treatment area. Most people describe these sensations as being like doing an intense workout at the gym but without having to do any physical exercise.

Does EmSculpt work?

Yes. Clinical studies have shown that EmSculpt can increase muscle mass by 16% and reduce fat by 19% within one month of treatment when combined with proper diet and exercise habits.

How long does it take to see results from EmSculpt?

Most people begin seeing results within two weeks of their first treatment session, but optimal results are usually seen within one month after completing all recommended sessions.

Can EmSculpt tone both small and large muscle groups?

EmSculpt is an effective body-sculpting procedure for both small and large muscles. The EmSculpt system uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy which works by delivering 20,000 contractions during each session. This helps to build, strengthen, and tone the targeted areas of the body, such as the arms and calves, which often prove challenging to tone. With a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs, you can be sure that EmSculpt will help you get the desired results in your chosen areas.

How many squats is EmSculpt equivalent to?

EmSculpt is the equivalent of up to 20,000 crunches or squats in each session. This is much more than can be achieved through physical training alone and helps to build muscle and reduce fat in targeted areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs. As with any body-sculpting procedure.

Why can’t I just exercise instead of using EmSculpt?

Regular exercise has many benefits for physical and mental health but can also be time-consuming and intense. EmSculpt allows you to target areas of the body that may be harder to tone with regular exercises, such as the arms and calves. It helps to speed up your progress by stimulating a higher intensity of muscle contraction than can typically be achieved with physical training alone. Additionally, EmSculpt treatments are typically shorter than traditional workouts and can help provide you with more noticeable results in less time.
