EMSculpt is a body contouring treatment that can be used to build muscle, burn unwanted fat, and sculpt the muscles in the stomach, buttocks, biceps, and triceps.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

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.

When will I see results?

Initial clinical results may appear 2-6 weeks after treatment, but it will take 6 months to attain the full effect from one Emsculpt treatment. A series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.

Is there a recovery period?

There is no recovery period associated with EMSculpt treatments, but soreness may be experienced in the treated area for 2-3 days following treatment.

Who performs the treatment?

Dr. Tina Alster and Dr. Neelam Khan (Board-Certified Dermatologists).
