Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that gets rid of unwanted fat and builds muscles in your arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Emsculpt treatments are non-surgical, using only high-intensity contractions to build muscle mass, and thus require little-to-no downtime.
How Does EmSculpting Work?
Using electromagnetic energy, Emsculpting simulates how voluntary contractions of muscles work during a workout, but on an extreme level. A single 30-minute Emsculpt session results in thousands of muscle contractions that are equivalent to doing an intense workout, such as 20,000 crunches or squats—all without surgery.
To deal with the extreme conditions, your muscles will feed on local calories and fat to endure. This will reduce fat and tone your abdomen, buttocks, or any other area you’d like to have treated.
Who Can Receive An Emsculpt Treatment?
Emsculpt treatments are ideal for those who are already building muscle and do not have a lot of excess fat. If a patient just needs a little extra help to sculpt or tone their abdomen or arms or want a non-invasive butt lift, then an Emsculpt session is a good choice.
Emsculpt treatments are suitable for both men and women and is also a good option for those recovering from an injury. This is because it’s a quick way to strengthen muscle groups that have become weak due to an injury.
Who Should Avoid Treatment?
Emsculpting focuses more on building muscle rather than total fat reduction. Thus, patients who have a lot of body fat, in general, will not benefit from a body-contouring treatment like Emsculpt, as the results would be ultimately unnoticeable.
Additionally, individuals who have metal or electronics, such as a pacemaker, implanted anywhere in their body, or patients who have a history of muscle issues like complicated hernias, are not suitable to get Emsculpt altogether. If a patient has a metal implant, it’s best that they consult with their doctor first.
How Many Treatments Should I Receive?
We recommend having a minimum of four, 20 to 30-minute sessions scheduled two to three days apart to achieve maximum results. We’ll also help you create a treatment tailored to your specific needs.
Is There Downtime?
As Emsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require surgery, there is little-to-no downtime required after sessions. While the targeted muscles may feel sore after treatment, this is completely normal. Patients can still continue their daily activities as they please, be it driving, working, or even exercising.

How Much Does It Cost?
An effective set of sessions will vary based on which muscle group a patient wants to target and the kind of body contouring results they want to see. A single session can cost anywhere between $750 to $1,000. However, as we recommend at least four treatments over a span of two weeks, a full set of sessions would cost around $3,000 to $4,000.
Patients will be able to see results right after treatment and will continue to improve for several weeks following a set of treatments. An Emsculpt procedure can:
- Boost metabolism
- Tone or sculpt buttocks, arms, and/or abdominal muscles
- Burn fat
- Build muscle mass
Overall, a patient can expect a body that feels and looks like it has worked out maximally while eating well and controlling fat intake for six months to a year. This can be incredibly motivating for fit patients who have stubborn spots.
