emsculptBuild muscle and reduce fat while relaxing? Sound too good to be true? Not with EMSculpt, FDA-cleared to treat your abdominals, buttocks, arms, calves, and thighs. Build a six-pack without doing one sit-up!

It’s not just about looking and feeling strong; toned muscles help heal our wounds, boost immunity and organ function, and keep us balanced which prevents injury and spine problems. EMSculpt is also an option four to six weeks after child birth to help the 60% of women whose abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy (diastasis recti).

What Is EMSculpt?
EMSculpt uses high-intensity electromagnetic therapy to trigger hundreds of fast muscle contractions per minute to grow new muscle fibers, building muscle size and strength. And, because a lot of calories are needed to fuel these contractions, EMSculpt also significantly increases fat metabolism (clinical studies have shown a five-times increase.)

You’d need to do 20,000 sit-ups or squats to equal the muscle-building results of one EMSculpt session. And sit-ups and squats do very little to reduce fat, and cannot generate targeted fat loss, unlike EMSculpt which causes burning of local fat stores in the treatment area.

EMSculpt was first FDA-approved in 2014.

Is EMSculpt right for me?
EMSculpt candidates are healthy male or female adults with a BMI under 25, and who are looking for an alternative to surgeries like butt implants, liposuction, or tummy tucks, or who simply want to tone up their physique.

EMSculpt may also be beneficial to athletes recovering from an injury by speeding rehab and building back muscle lost while injured. And strong muscles can help prevent injury.

EMSculpt may not be performed during pregnancy or on people with metal in their bodies, including pacemakers and copper IUDs. Ask about any metal dental implants as they are likely far enough away from the treatment area to pose no issue.

How do I prepare for treatment?
A consultation, always complimentary, is required prior to treatment. We recommend wearing lose, comfortable clothing to your appointment.

Some find the sensation of an EMSculpt treatment odd as muscles act involuntarily and in an un-natural feeling way. It is not painful and is safe. Your practitioner will slowly increase the intensity during your half-hour appointment, to a level that is comfortable for you.

Treatments typically last 20-40 minutes, depending upon area to be addressed.

Post-treatment care or downtime?
There is no downtime and you can immediately return to your regular activities. During treatment the waves of energy are alternated with a “tapping” phase which eliminates lactic acid build-up and limits soreness. Some patients report mild soreness like a gym work out.

How long until I see results?
Results may be seen immediately after your first session. You can expect final results at three months after your appointments.

How long will results last?
Just as skipping your gym workouts leads to muscle atrophy, your EMSculpt muscular results will fade over about six months to a year unless the muscles are worked regularly. We can sustain your results with a maintenance treatment regimen. Strengthening workouts also help.

Fat cells destroyed by EMSculpt are permanently removed from your body. That does not mean remaining fat cells in the area can’t get larger, so maintaining a healthy diet is important.

How many treatments will I need?
A typical plan is four treatments two to three days apart. During the initial consultation, we’ll customize a plan for you.

What is the science?
emsculpt science factsWe build muscle by contracting them repeatedly and consistently over time. When we work out, our muscle contractions are voluntary, initiated by signals from our brains. EMSculpt contractions are forced by high-intensity, focused electromagnetic energy.

These strong contractions cause the muscles to adapt and release chemicals locally, a catalyst for a deep remodeling of their structure, leading to firmer, larger muscles and a more toned appearance.

An EMSculpt treatment also releases epinephrine, a naturally occurring chemical that tells fat cells in the area to break down. These fat cells are permanently removed from your body.
