What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is a completely new device that is in a body-contouring class of its own. It’s the first FDA-cleared energy device approved to decrease fat and build muscle mass. It’s a no-downtime, pain-free, non-surgicalway to define the abs, lift the buttocks, tone arms & legs, including inner thighs & calves.
How Does EMSCULPT Work?
EMSCULPT contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. These results are backed by 7 clinical studies, showing fat loss as well as defined and sculpted muscles to the abdomen, buttocks, arms and legs following a series of 4 treatments.
HIFEM – High Intensity, Focused Electro Magnetic energy, meaning EMSCULPT produces magnetic energy that creates “supramaximal” muscle contraction. It uses a series of different patterns of muscle contractions during treatment to stimulate muscle work beyond what you can get through a personal trainer with strength training alone.
When exposed to strong contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme condition. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and sculpting your body.
A single EMSCULPT treatment is the equivalent of doing approximately 20,000 sit ups or squats. This muscle contraction leads to building of new muscle mass (increased tone and muscle definition) as well as enhanced fat metabolism through lipolysis, or destruction of fat cells. EMSCULPT decreases fat and tones muscle in the abdominals, buttocks, arms and legs region without pain, downtime or sweating

Results Of EMSCULPT
BTL, the manufacturer of EMSCULPT, conducted 7 studies with over 200 patients on the abdomen and buttocks. The studies show how effective EMSCULPT is at burning fat and increasing muscle mass. They measured fat and muscle with imaging (CT scans and MRI studies), comparing photos before and after treatment, and measuring changes in waistline measurements.
On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:
- 19% reduction of fat
- 4 cm (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
- 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92%
- 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
- 96% patient satisfaction
How Many EMSCULPT Treatments are Needed?
Clinical studies with EMSCULPT for the abdomen and buttocks treated patients for 30 minutes, twice a week for 2 weeks, a total of 4 treatments. Typically, one treatment every 3-6 months for maintenance is required to maintain results, .
Candidates for EMSCULPT
Adults in good shape who desire more definition of their abs, arms, legs or lifting of the buttocks are ideal candidates for EMSCULPT. EMSCULPT is well-suited for those who work out but just can’t seem to get a six- pack or a perky derriere. Good candidates are already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
