Emsculpt is a non-surgical procedure. The primary areas treated are the abdominal muscles and buttocks.

However, other body parts have gained approval for treatment, including the biceps, triceps, thighs, and calf muscles. One 30-minute session produces nearly 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, which is more than you could possibly do on your own. Contracting repeatedly without rest stresses the muscles, triggering rapid changes at the cellular level that make them grow bigger and stronger. The result of combined action of muscle tightening results in stronger, more defined muscles.

Emsculpt FAQs

What body parts does Emsculpt treat?

Emsculpt works in many areas of the body to improve muscle tone and strength. It is excellent for rapidly building triceps, stronger thighs, bigger calf muscles, rounded buttocks, and ab muscle definition. Since it burns fat while building muscle, it is great for patients that want to reduce belly fat or a belly pouch when home workouts and healthy eating are not enough to accomplish the results you are seeking.

How does Emsculpt work?

EmSculpt is a smart device that automatically stimulates thousands of muscle contractions while the patient lies comfortably in a treatment chair.

The non-invasive HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology induces powerful muscle contractions in a 30-minute treatment, the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or 20,000 squats. These electromagnetic pulses cause a metabolic reaction within the treatment area that strengthens and builds muscles while eliminating fat cells.

Is Emsculpt painful?

This treatment is painless, but it might be slightly uncomfortable since it feels similar to doing a very intense workout. Unlike traditional exercise, you will be lying down comfortably and relaxed during the treatment. Emsculpt technology does all the work for you.

Who is a good candidate for Emsculpt?

The ideal candidates for Emsculpt are patients that have reached a healthy body weight. Fitness enthusiasts love seeing how quickly the Emsculpt device amplifies the results of regular exercise. Some people simply have a hard time improving muscle definition with traditional workouts alone.

Emsculpt is also a great choice for patients that can’t spend as much time as they would like in the gym due to a busy lifestyle, parenting duties, jobs that require frequent travel, or recovering from injuries, such as a fractured bone, that prevent you from going to the gym like you normally would. If you have a hard time working out consistently due to physically limiting conditions such as arthritis, Emsculpt might be for you as well; however, patients should be cleared to undergo treatment and be in good overall health. Emsculpt is not a substitute for regular exercise and healthy eating.

What is Emsculpt recovery like?

There is minimal to no soreness after Emsculpt treatment.

A buildup of lactic acid in muscles can cause discomfort, however, EmSculpt helps to release lactic acid so that buildup and post-treatment discomfort is unlikely. Drinking plenty of water is recommended to alleviate post-treatment discomfort. There is no Emsculpt downtime, so you can resume daily activities right after the treatment, keeping in mind that the treated area may feel a bit sore.

What Emsculpt results can I expect?

Emsculpt builds muscle and burns fat rapidly. It provides faster results than traditional exercise since the technology triggers thousands of muscle contractions in a single 30-minute session — which is far more than even the fittest athlete could accomplish in the same time frame. In order to see the best results from Emsculpt, multiple treatment sessions are recommended. The number of treatment sessions varies based on your individual goals and existing fat and musculature.

How many Emsculpt treatments will I need?

The Emsculpt treatment shows the best results if you undergo it as instructed. At Zelko Aesthetics, we suggest that most patients start with 4 treatments: (2 Emsculpt sessions per week, for a total of 2 weeks). You will begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Visible results are usually reported 2 to 4 weeks after the last session. This is a good time to assess your results. Emsculpt may be repeated if you wish to further enhance the results of treatment.
