Emsculpt FAQ

Emsculpt Frequently Asked Questions

Body contouring has been in the spotlight for the past several years with countless treatment options to reduce fat with cold temperatures, laser energy, radiofrequency, and fat dissolving injectables.

While these treatments promise to improve the size and shape of the abdomen and other parts of the body, they only target fat and ignore muscle.

BTL Aesthetics recognized this inconsistency in current technologies and developed Emsculpt as a way for patients to get slimmer and toned abdomens and lifted and firmer buttocks.

In fact, Emsculpt is the first and only FDA-approved procedure that burns fat and builds muscle without surgery, pain, or downtime.

Keep reading to learn all about Emsculpt and how you can lose belly fat, define your abs, and tone your backside without stepping into a gym.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that destroys fat and strengthens muscle in the abdomen and buttocks.

It has also been effective in improving diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles), which often occurs post-pregnancy.

How Is Emsculpt Different from Current Body Contouring Treatments?

Current body contouring treatments do not correct weak muscles underneath fat. This is problematic because muscle accounts for 35 percent of the human body and is an essential component of well-being.

That being said, Emsculpt is taking body sculpting to the next level by simultaneously destroying fat and increasing muscle mass.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to force extremely powerful muscle contractions that are not possible with even the most rigorous workouts.

This forced activity then increases fat metabolism and muscle tone for a leaner, tighter, and firmer abdomen and backside.

How Effective Is Emsculpt?

To test Emsculpt’s efficacy, seven independent studies were conducted with 200 participants. After a series of four treatments, researchers observed:

  • 19% reduction in subcutaneous fat
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% improvement in diastasis recti
  • 96% patient satisfaction rate

Is Emsculpt Painful? Is There Any Downtime?

Emsculpt is a painless procedure that feels very similar to intense abdominal or gluteal exercises–except the device is doing all the work.

Best of all, it does not require any downtime, and normal activities, including workouts, can be resumed right away.

When Will Patients See Results?

Emsculpt Abs

For optimal effects, patients should have four Emsculpt treatments spaced two-to-three days apart. Fat reduction, muscle definition, and overall toning will begin to appear two-to-four weeks after the last session.

Emsculpt results are continuous and should be fully visible by three months, but can improve for up to six months.

How Much Does Emsculpt Cost?

Depending on geographic location, Emsculpt can range from $750-1500 per treatment.
