EMsculpt Going Beyond Weight Loss

What is Emscult?

So you are looking to sculpt your body and shed a few pounds, here is what you need to know. Emsculpt is a new, noninvasive procedure that is efficient at shaping your body, improving muscle tone and burning fat. It is the first device that is used in abdominal muscles development and decreases fat in the abdomen and buttocks simultaneously without surgery or the usual downtime. Emsculpt is the only treatment that offers improvement in all areas at the same time and progress over time. EMSculpt is the first FDA-approved body sculpting device that can burn fat and build muscle at precisely the same time. Because Emscult does not involve any surgical measures, one may think it is therapy.

For the buttock, however, there is a separate protocol because the aim is to build gluteal muscles without destroying shape-enhancing fat in the area. Emsculpt isolates the muscles in the buttock in a way exercise cannot. It tones and defined muscles to improve the look of your physique. Last year Emsculpt outsold coolsculpting, which has been available to the public for decades, by a lot. It can help patients work out with confidence. If you decide Emsculpt is the ideal treatment program that meets your requirements. Then the body contouring specialist in Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach Gardens can help you.

How does it work?

Emsculpt uses cutting-edge technology that eliminates fat and tones your body. The device generates electromagnetic energy, which is used to stimulate the muscles and make them contract in the treated area. It is similar to how the muscles contract naturally. However, Emsulpt makes the muscles contract at a much higher intensity than the body. The energy from the device causes the muscles to do supramaximal contractions. The elevated contractions help achieve amazing results in men and women.

Emscult can create approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions. This cannot be done with voluntary contractions or 20,000 sit-ups or squats in one 30-minute session. When the body is introduced to supramaximal contractions, the extreme contraction forces the muscle tissue to lift and pull. The constant lifting and pulling of the muscle causes the muscle tissue to provide a response that results in fat burning and muscle building.

The Advantages of EMSCULPT

What set Emsculpt apart from other procedures is that it simultaneously works to burn fat and build muscle. The 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions not only simultaneously create muscle fibers for more defined abs and firmer rear ends, but it also implodes fat cells. It only takes Emsculpt 30 minutes to make 20,000 muscle contractions. The contraction constricts the muscle beyond any physiological norm, and it targets fat loss to the specified area of the muscle. The intense pulses cause muscles to release chemicals and signal fat cells to break down and release free fatty acids. The massive amounts of fatty acids attack the fat cells, causing them to die. The fatty acids are then metabolized and excreted as waste.

The Ideal Candidate

Emsculpt is not for everyone. The ideal candidate should be thin, fit, and looking for a lift in their buttocks and definition in the abdomen. The patient should be looking at abdominal tone strengthening as well. The patients who have a lot of body fat will not see a massive improvement at the beginning. If you are active and have only small stubborn areas, Emscupt is highly recommended. For further information, contact our Ft. Lauderdale or Palm Beach Gardens office to set up a consultation.

Emsculpt is very popular among men and women. Whether you are patients for weight reduction or an athlete recovering from injury, Emsculpt is an excellent option because it is a quick way to strengthen the muscle groups. Physical therapy centers use Emsculpt as well. Emsculpt is not suited for people with pacemakers or patients with a history of muscle tissue issues such as hernias.


There is a 30-minute protocol for abs, and it is set in three phases. In the first phase, the technician slowly increases the intensity of contractions based on patient tolerance. The contraction feels like subtle tightening of the muscles and some mild tingles. In the second phase, as the energy grows, the contractions are sharper, and the muscles rise and fall from your abdomen. It is similar to contractions in pregnancy. When the intensity reaches 50 percent, it can be challenging, but there is no pain, just slight discomfort.

The third phase and final stage of treatment are the most bearable. It feels like forceful tapping on the muscles, which is caused by very slow and voluntary contractions. These contractions are designed to remove any lactic acid or toxins unleashed by muscles. There is no build-up in the muscles, no danger of the patient over-exercising, and no pain. You can get the same results from six months of dieting and exercise.


There are decades of studies that support the safety of the device. However, like most scanning devices, Emsculpt should not be used where there is metal in the body, such as a pacemaker. The pacemaker can overheat or short-circuit. It is not safe during pregnancy. You should also keep your cell phone a safe distance from the device. Bras with wire inserts should be avoided as well.

How Long does it take?

Emsculpt sessions are broken up into a 30-minute for each area. If you need sessions on multiple areas like your buttocks and your abdomen each requires 30 minutes. For safety, it is recommended that only four Emsculpt sessions should be scheduled at a time. As your body progress, you will see the abdominal muscles development and abdominal tone strengthening.

What are the results?

The expectations are that you will see a 15 to 20 percent fat reduction in abdominal muscles development and abdominal tone strengthening. The tangible results should be seen after two to four weeks, and it should continue after several weeks.

How long will they last?

The length of time Emsculpt treatment lasts on the patient’s lifestyle. Some patients maintain their body with regular exercise, while others use more treatment as their maintenance. So when you are ready, our team in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach Gardens would love to help you achieve your goals.
