Emsculpt Q & A

What is EmSculpt?

EmSculpt is a device from BTL Aesthetics, a part of BTL Industries Inc.

The EmSculpt device sends high-intensity electromagnetic energy into targeted areas of muscle. The energy causes thousands of muscle contractions that are more intense and powerful than you can achieve with routine exercise. As a result, you build new muscles, tone your body, and lose fat at the same time.

What body areas can I improve with EmSculpt?

The Adult and Pediatric Dermatology team uses EmSculpt to tone muscles and reduce fat on your abdomen and buttocks.

EmSculpt isn’t intended for people who still have substantial weight to lose. The device produces the best results in people who are close to their healthy weight but still have residual pockets of stubborn fat or who just want to tone their muscles.

What happens during an EmSculpt session?

During your session, you lie comfortably on the table. Your provider straps the EmSculpt device to the targeted area and begins your treatment.

Your treatment lasts 30 minutes. You experience a cycle of muscle contractions that alternate between rapid and slower, more powerful contractions during that time.

At first, the contractions can feel intense. But your provider begins at a low setting and gradually increases it to ensure your comfort. After your session, you can go back to your daily routine.

Though you don’t need to take time off to recover, you might have sore muscles afterward, just like you would after a hard workout.

When will I see the results of my EmSculpt treatments?

The Adult and Pediatric Dermatology team usually recommends a series of four sessions, scheduling two treatments over two weeks. Most people feel the difference after those four sessions, but you might need to schedule more to improve your results.

Fat loss with EmSculpt is permanent, as long as you don’t regain the lost weight. You can only maintain your improved muscle tone by following a regular exercise plan.

Just like the muscle mass you gain at the gym, the muscles eventually weaken and lose mass if you stop working out. However, you might be able to maintain your muscle results with occasional EmSculpt treatments.

Does Emsculpt hurt during and after the treatment?

Though Emsculpt is a safe and noninvasive procedure, some patients may feel discomfort and mild pain during the session. The experience of Emsculpt treatment varies from person to person. It is not painful or it will not hurt your body organs rather it may make you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Most of the patients describe this experience as if they have an intensive workout. But don’t worry. Our doctors are very experienced. They can control your discomfort reducing the treatment intensity. These discomforts include-

  • Muscle pain and tenderness: You may feel mild pain in the body part where electromagnetic energy is applied.
  • Dizziness and provocation: You may feel dizziness and nausea during the Emsculpt session.
  • Temporary weakness: In this treatment high intensive magnetic energy is applied in the targeted area, so you may feel temporary weakness.

Bruising and lump in the targeted area: You may experience bruising and lump in the body part where the treatment is applied. 

Is Emsculpt safe and worthy?

The answer is yes. Food and Drug Administration approved Emsculpt as a safe cosmetic procedure. High-intensity electromagnetic energy is used in the targeted area to trigger crinkles. If you want to improve your muscle tone but you don’t have enough time to go to the gym to work out, then Emsculpt is suitable for you.

Emsculpt is identical to CoolSculpting in the sense that Emsculpt also reduces the stubborn fat cells from targeted areas. The benefit is that Emsculpt treatment not only burns unwanted fat cells but also shapes the body and develops muscle. So, if you want to get the two benefits from one treatment then Emsculpt will be your perfect solution.

Though Emsculpt is a safe treatment for most of the individuals. There are some contradictions to treatment as well. These are-

  • Pregnant women
  • The patients who have metal medical devices in their bodies.

The patients who have a history of cancer. 

How long does Emsculpt last? 

It is common that after having Emsculpt treatment you will desire stronger muscle. It is an effective treatment to destroy stubborn fat cells and build strong muscle tone. So, how long the Emsculpt result will last depends on your lifestyle. If you maintain a balanced diet and exercise regularly then the result will last longer. Besides you should maintain-

  • Drink an adequate amount of water.
  • Eat sufficient protein regularly.
  • Schedule an appropriate time for the workout.

Though the treatment burns fat cells in the targeted area, surrounding cells can still accumulate fat and grow again. To get medical advice, you can consult our trained practitioner.
