EMSCULPT is a new non-invasive, non-surgical, pain free procedure designed to sculpt the muscles of the abdomen and buttocks. It is the first FDA-cleared device created to burn fat and sculpt muscle. With EMSCULPT there is no downtime or painful surgery required. You can resculpt your abdomen and buttocks without concerns about a long or painful recovery.

EMSCULPT uses high-frequency, focused electromagnetic energy, or HIFEM, to deliver deep muscle stimulation. During one session with EMSCULPT, your muscles will undergo a series of muscle contractions you are unable to achieve through strength training alone. One single session causes the targeted muscles to contract more than 20,000 times. These contractions create new muscle definition as your body rapidly tones muscles, while burning fat cells through the process of lipolysis. EMSCULPT requires only a 30-minute session.

Get Started

What does EMSCULPT Treat?

EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared for use on the muscles of the abdomen and buttocks. During your EMSCULPT sessions, you will increase your muscle mass and burn fat without the pain of surgery or weeks and months of workouts. What’s more, you can rapidly tone your muscles in a way impossible to achieve simply with regular exercise.

Benefits of EMSCULPT

EMSCULPT allows you to contour the muscles of the abdomen and buttocks in ways that would be impossible to achieve without months of work with a personal trainer. Treatment with EMSCULPT has been shown to result in:

  • 19% reduction of fat
  • 16% average increase of muscle mass
  • An average of 1.5 inches lost from the waistline
  • 80% of those treated reported lifted buttocks

EMSCULPT offers the only non-surgical option for treatment of Diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles that can occur during pregnancy. In treatment of Diastasis recti, EMSCULPT was shown to have an eleven percent reduction in the separation of abdominal muscles.

What to Expect

During your EMSCULPT session, 2 paddles will be attached to the designated treatment area. Your session will last approximately 30 minutes, meaning you can have it performed on your lunch break and return to your usual activities once treatment is complete.

As you relax for 30 minutes in the comfort of our New York office, more than 20,000 contractions will be delivered to the body area you want to slim, trim, and sculpt. This is more than you could ever perform in one session of crunches or squats at the gym. You will feel slight muscle contractions as the treatment progresses, but the sensation does not involve pain or discomfort.

Once your procedure is complete, you are free to go back to work or other activities. The treated zone may feel slightly sore in the same way it would after completing a high-intensity strength training session. The soreness may continue for a day or two following EMSCULPT.

It is recommended that you have four 30-minute treatment sessions with EMSCULPT. Treatments will be scheduled twice a week for two weeks.

Am I a Candidate for EMSCULPT?

Men and women who are in good physical shape who want to create a more attractive contour by toning and sculpting the muscles of the abdomen or buttocks are good candidates for EMSCULPT. It is a fantastic option for those who maintain an active fitness regime but have been unable to achieve the sculpted look to these body areas. If you are physically active and have a healthy diet, EMSCULPT could be a wonderful method by which you can significantly enhance the contours of your body.

Before & After

How to Prepare for EMSCULPT

There is no preparation required for your EMSCULPT session. You should treat your session as you might a high-intensity workout. Make sure you are well hydrated and that you have not eaten a large meal immediately prior to your EMSCULPT session.

Following EMSCULPT

Since there is no downtime associated with EMSCULPT, recovery from your sessions is very minimal. You will experience some soreness following your sessions, but it will be no more intense than that following a good workout.
