Non-invasive body contouring has quickly become one of the most-requested cosmetic treatments for women and men.

This popularity has not only given way to technological advancements, it’s also provided patients with an increasing number of treatment options, including Emsculpt and SculpSure.

So, what separates these two procedures and how can patients determine which treatment is right for them?

Continue reading to learn about Emsculpt vs. SculpSure in terms of procedure, treatment time, results, and number of sessions needed.

Emsculpt vs. SculpSure – Procedure

Emsculpt is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to simultaneously burn fat and build muscle.

By initiating 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, Emsculpt seeks to non-surgically strengthen, tone, and firm the abdomen and buttocks.

SculpSure is a non-invasive fat removal treatment that employs hyperthermic lasers to melt localized fat deposits, which are gradually eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system. The technology also claims to stimulate collagen and improve skin elasticity.

Emsculpt vs. SculpSure – Treatment Time

Both Emsculpt and SculpSure are performed in an office setting, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

An Emsculpt session can be completed in 30 minutes, while a SculpSure treatment takes 25 minutes.

Emsculpt vs. SculpSure – Results

In 7 independent clinical-studies, Emsculpt achieved an average 19 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat, an average 16% increase in muscle mass, and visible lifting of buttocks.

The body contouring treatment also earned a 96 percent patient satisfaction score.

SculpSure has been clinically-proven to produce up to a 24 percent decrease in subcutaneous fat in the treated area. However, this technology does act on muscle, nor does it strengthen, tone, or firm the body.

Emsculpt vs. SculpSure – Number of Treatments

A series of four treatments, spaced two-to-three days apart, is recommended for optimal Emsculpt results. Treatment effects typically become evident in two-to-four weeks.

To achieve desired fat reduction, most individuals require two SculpSure treatments. Treatments are to be scheduled four-to-six weeks apart, and it can take up to three months to see final results.
