IT’S NOT ONLY ABOUT FAT
Want to improve the tone, shape, and strength of your stomach, arms, thighs, calves, or buttocks? And remove pinchable fat without surgery?
Even though more than a third of your body is comprised of muscle, Emsculpt is the only procedure to help both women and men build and tone muscle and burn pesky fat. It’s the world’s first non-invasive butt lift and the only FDA-approved device for building and toning the muscles in the:
A REVOLUTION IN BODY SCULPTING
Emsculpt is a comfortable treatment session that takes just 30 minutes. During that time, pulses of high intensity focused electro-magnetic (HIFEM) technology are delivered into the treatment area to trigger rapid contractions in the muscle. A single 30-minute session produces 20,000 muscle contractions. This is the equivalent of performing 20,000 crunches, squats, curls, or lunges! And because the magnetic stimulation is so powerful, it results in “supra-maximal muscle contractions,” which can’t be produced in any other way. The muscle fatigue that occurs because of these contractions creates tiny microscopic injuries to the muscle. When these heal, the results are twofold:
- A noticeable increase in muscle mass
- A permanent decrease in fatty deposits

It’s so effective that it’s one of the only ways to reduce intra-abdominal (visceral) fat. Your results will be noticeable in only a few days, and a series of four sessions can typically be maintained with one maintenance session every three to four months.
How Supramaximal Muscle Contractions Achieve What Exercise Can’t
When you exercise, your muscles contract. Between every rep, the muscle fibers relax because your central nervous system and motor nerves can only send a single nerve signal to the muscle at a time. The highest amount of tension that can be developed is called the “maximal voluntary contraction” (MVC), and it usually only lasts for a fraction of a second. This limits the amount of work your muscles can do and the results you can expect from them.
Emsculpt overcomes this limitation by generating impulses that stimulate your muscles to contract rapidly. They don’t relax between impulses. These contractions that are faster and longer-lasting than MVCs are called “supramaximal muscle contractions.” Emsculpt has the unique ability to generate supramaximal contractions for multiple seconds, resulting in a significant increase in the stress and workload that your muscles need in order to grow. When muscles are exposed to supramaximal contractions, they respond with an increase in:
- Muscle size
- The number of muscle fibers
What does that mean for you? Increased muscle mass and definition.
Emsculpt also reduces fat in the area of treatment. During supramaximal muscle contractions, muscles require energy to produce contractions. That energy comes mainly from adenosine triphosphate (ATP). When the muscles run out of their normal fuel, they must use fat from your body’s fat stores. The fat can be burned anywhere in your body, but it’s usually focused near the areas of muscle contraction. The metabolism of fat regularly results in a decrease in the size of fat cells. But if it’s rapid enough, like the supramaximal muscle contraction from Emsculpt, it can cause fat cells to die, resulting in permanent fat loss in the areas of muscle contraction.
What Can Emsculpt Do for You?
Traditional exercise increases muscle mass by creating tiny micro-injuries to the muscle. Your body responds to these injuries by repairing them with thicker, larger muscle fibers, which equals muscle growth.
Muscle definition occurs when two things happen simultaneously:
- Muscle growth
- Fat loss
Both occur during a single session of Emsculpt.
Sculpt Your Body
Body sculpting is the purposeful, deliberate reshaping of your natural body contours by increasing and toning specific muscles and losing or redistributing fat in specific areas.
Non-Invasively Sculpt Your Abdomen
Exercise strengthens and tones the abdominal muscles and can result in a “six-pack” of abs. Targeted loss of subcutaneous and intra-abdominal fat with Emsculpt further refines the appearance of the abdomen by accentuating two parts of it:
- The large, flat area in the middle, called the linea alba
- The tendinous inscriptions that separate the six-pack muscles
Non-Invasively Lift Your Butt
Emsculpt is a non-surgical technique that strengthens and tones the gluteal muscles, resulting in firmer, more projected, and lifted buttocks without the use of implants, dermal fillers, or fat graft.
Correct Flat Buttocks
As people age, they lose muscle mass throughout the body. In the buttocks, this results in a saggy or deflated appearance. Strengthening these muscles with Emsculpt can combat this change.
Firm and Tone the Buttocks
Repeated supramaximal contractions of the gluteal muscles results in the firm, tight, high buttocks many patients desire.
Correct Muscle Wasting in the Buttocks
Lack of exercise, aging, and other factors contribute to the loss of muscle mass in the buttocks. This not only results in the appearance of a “sagging” butt but can also make it difficult to sit and stand, and sitting on hard surfaces can be uncomfortable. Strengthened muscles via Emsculpt can correct these issues.
Strengthen and Tone Your Arms
Many patients are embarrassed to wear clothes that expose their arms because of a lack of muscle, excess fat, or poor skin tone. Emsculpt can help build and tone your arm muscles by activating all the muscle groups 360 degrees around the arm. The result is an exercise that strengthens all the arm muscles—not just isolated groups. Targeted fat loss also helps increase muscle definition in the arms.
Get Rid of Too-Skinny or Too-Fat Calves
Many patients are dissatisfied with the appearance of their calves. They are either too skinny because they lack muscle, or they’re too fat because they have excess fat. Emsculpt simultaneously increases muscle mass and tone in the hard-to-exercise calf muscles and burns their subcutaneous fat.
Improve the Appearance of the Thighs
Emsculpt has been approved for application to the thigh muscles, strengthening them and reducing fat deposits in these hard-to-treat areas.
Strengthen Your Core Muscles
Core strengthening focuses on your abdominal, back, and pelvic muscles. After Emsculpt supramaximal muscle contractions in the core —which you cannot produce on your own—patients typically notice significant improvement in their core strength, posture, and back pain. This is particularly important for athletes, avid yoga participants, singers and vocalists, and people with long commutes.
Reduce Intra-Abdominal Fat
Did you know fat can be located inside your abdomen? It’s called “visceral fat,” and it can’t be eliminated with traditional surgical approaches, like liposuction. In the past, the only way to reduce this fat was with diet and exercise. Emsculpt is the only FDA-approved body-sculpting device that has been shown to reduce this intra-abdominal, visceral fat.
Emsculpt’s supramaximal muscle contractions rapidly deplete the energy stores in your muscles, forcing fat cells in the area to utilize their fat stores for energy. This accelerates calorie loss in the entire body, as well as shrinking and killing fat cells in the treatment area.
Reduce Fat and Build Muscle with No Downtime
You can obtain permanent fat reduction and muscle building with Emsculpt. It does not require needles, scalpels, sutures, anesthesia, or any other type of procedure.
How Much Does Emsculpt Cost?
Emsculpt is typically performed in a series of four treatments. If you’d like, you can have regular maintenance treatments after this every three to four months. The MSRP for a cycle of 4 treatments is $3,000.
Does Emsculpt Work with Other Treatments?
Yes! Emsculpt is FDA-approved for building and defining muscle, but the abdomen is comprised of skin and fat as well as muscle. It’s not unusual for patients to benefit from treating all these areas, and not just one. For instance, patients with loose skin benefit from Pellevé® to tighten it. Patients with excess fat may benefit from liposuction.
What Is Recovery Like?
There is virtually no recovery time after Emsculpt. Patients leave the office after a session, feeling better already. Some patients experience soreness after treatment, but this is minimized by the specific programs in the Emsculpt device. These programs time contractions so your muscles flush out the lactic acid that makes them sore after a workout. You can go straight from your Emsculpt session to the pool or the beach!
What Are the Risks Associated with Emsculpt?
There are no inherent risks of the Emsculpt treatment. The only reason to not have Emsculpt performed is if you are pregnant or have a metal implant in the area of treatment, since Emsculpt requires the use of a powerful magnet.
What Is the Emsculpt Procedure Like?
Despite the dramatic results, you will be able to leave your Emsculpt session and return to your day with no disruption to your routine. Patients often see positive results after one session, but most patients will have multiple sessions to achieve their optimal figure. Treatment time lasts 30 minutes and does not require a needle, gel, or any form of intervention aside from applying the Emsculpt paddles to your skin!
There are two separate applicators, so it is possible to treat both arms, your legs, calves, or buttocks at the same time.
Is It Painful?
Emsculpt is very comfortable! Since it uses magnetic—not electrical—energy, the only sensation is that of the muscles contracting. If you want to see what it feels like, check out the videos on our Instagram profile at https://www.instagram.com/vhplasticsurgery/?hl=en.
When Will You See Emsculpt Results?
Most patients see results immediately and improvements for up to three months after their treatments series.
Are Emsculpt Results Permanent?
Ongoing studies of Emsculpt have shown that the results last for at least 12 months after treatment. Like any treatment, it’s important to maintain your results through regular exercise and a healthy diet. We do offer maintenance sessions every three months, but this is not required.
Are There Any Other Devices Like Emsculpt on the Market?
No. Emsculpt is the first device the FDA has cleared for fat loss and increasing muscle mass, totally non-invasively, using HIFEM technology. While there are competitors that claim to produce a similar result, they do not use the same technology. Also, Emsculpt is the only device cleared for use on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs, and calves.
Can Emsculpt Replace Exercise?
There is no substitute for a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and frequent exercise. But Emsculpt adds something unique and useful in that it produces supramaximal muscle contractions that stimulate all the muscles in a given area. These can’t be produced by regular exercise or weightlifting.
How Does Emsculpt Compare to Fat Reduction Devices, Like CoolSculpting® and WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure®?
Fat-reduction devices like CoolSculpting and SculpSure are used to permanently reduce areas of stubborn fat by 15% to 25% per session. Emsculpt is used to build and tone muscle groups while simultaneously decreasing fat.
Emsculpt is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their body without needles or anesthesia.
Finally, a non-invasive body-sculpting solution that builds the foundation of your appearance while burning fat. It’s proven through MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, and animal histologies. Best of all, Emsculpt is anesthesia- and needle-free.
- Laxity of abdominal muscles decreased an average of 11%.
- Treatment has no side effects and requires no downtime.
