Imagine lying down to rest for 30 minutes while a device does 20,000 crunches for you? What was unimaginable a few decades ago, is here with EMSculpt!
The physicians at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery are the first to offer EMSculpt in Washington, DC. It is the newest revolution in body sculpting procedures, the EMSculpt by BTL. EMSculpt is the world’s first and only non-invasive procedure to simultaneously build muscle, burn unwanted fat, and sculpt the abs and buttocks. Emsculpt is an exciting addition to our toolbox of non-invasive body contouring procedures. While other treatments can eliminate stubborn bulges, get rid of cellulite and tighten the skin, this treatment will build muscle while burning fat.
We are thrilled to have Emsculpt in our body contouring arsenal. Patients who eat well and exercise regularly can finally get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat and build muscle simultaneously. This treatment is a game-changer. - Dr. Tina Alster
Using High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology, EMSculpt induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through exercise (or voluntary contractions). During normal voluntary muscle contractions the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus. EMSculpt generates impulses at such a rapid frequency that it doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Supramaximal contractions cause an enhanced adrenaline release, which triggers an intensive lipolysis response in fat cells. When exposed to the supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt, responding with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.
On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:
The EMSculpt works on the abdomen area contracting and tightening the muscles to both burn fat and sculpt the area. This treatment can help you improve the muscle definition that you are already seeing from your fitness routine. It is also ideal for addressing that stubborn inch of fat on your stomach that just won’t go away.
EMSculpt works on the buttocks as well, using the same supramaximal muscle contractions as with the abdomen area. Many patients opt to try this treatment in place of an invasive Brazilian butt lift. Emsculpt technology delivers the world’s first noninvasive butt lift procedure. This treatment can give you the curvature, tone, and lift that you desire. It is an alternative to the Brazilian Booty Lift procedure and provides a defined shape instead of adding excess fat to the area.
"I eat well and workout but was never able to lose that last area of fat around my abdomen and butt. I can't believe this Emsculpt treatment is available in my lifetime. It's amazing, and was exactly what I needed!" - Colleen C.
Those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas.
30 minutes per area. Multiple areas can be simultaneously treated in one appointment.
Early results 2-6 weeks after treatment. Continued clinical improvement for 6 months.
The fat loss may be permanent, the muscle effects are long lasting (likely 6 months or longer). After an initial series of 4 treatments, periodic maintenance (every 3-6 months) is recommended. Reasonable dietary and exercise habits are also recommended.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR EMSCULPT?
This treatment is ideal for individuals with a low BMI who may not be eligible for other body contouring procedures. Emsculpt is very effective in eliminating small pockets of fat on individuals who are physically fit. This technology has the potential to provide beneficial muscle tightening in anyone. A complimentary consultation is the best way to find out if you are a candidate for this procedure.
HOW MUCH DOES THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE COST?
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR EMSCULPT TREATMENT?
Prior to the treatment you are not required to do anything special.
WHAT IS THE DAY OF TREATMENT LIKE?
On the day of the treatment, you are advised to wear comfortable clothing which allows flexibility for correct positioning during the treatment. You will be asked to remove all jewelry and electronic devices.
HOW LONG DOES AN EMSCULPT TREATMENT SESSION TAKE?
EMSculpt treatment sessions typically takes 30 minutes.
HOW MANY EMSCULPT TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
To maximize efficacy, we recommend a series of four treatments with sessions separated by at least two days.
DOES EMSCULPT HURT?
The procedure itself is painless. No anesthetic is required. You sit back while two panels are used to apply the High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic energy. The sensation during the treatment is best compared to how your muscles feel during an intense workout.
EMSCULPT TREATMENT SUCCESS
Successful Emsculpt treatment outcome can be affected by smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, as well as: eating disorders or on-going medication. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy to help promote and maintain results.
HOW IS EMSCULPT TREATMENT RECOVERY?
There is no recovery period or downtime, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. The following day, you may experience muscle soreness similar to what you would feel after an intense workout.
IS THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE SAFE?
Emsculpt is FDA-approved.
CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes, you can. Mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is a normal and expected side effect from Emsculpt treatment. Often times, patients return to work after their Emsculpt session is over.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results from Emsculpt can be seen between 2 – 6 weeks from the first treatment. These results continue to improve over a six-month period. Emsculpt treatment can be continued past four sessions for even more noticeable results.
