Does Emsculpt Really Work?

Despite the numerous body contouring options currently available, Emsculpt is the first and only non-invasive treatment that can burn fat and build muscle at the same time.

In fact, this dual capability is so unique that some may wonder if it can really deliver flat and defined abs and firm and lifted buttocks.

So, does Emsculpt really work?

The answer is yes. Emsculpt’s safety and efficacy have been clinically-proven, and it has the science to back up its claims.

Here’s what you need to know about the Emsculpt procedure, its mechanism of action and results.

What Is Emsculpt?

Manufactured by BTL Aesthetics, Emsculpt is a one-of-a-kind non-invasive body contouring treatment that simultaneously burns fat and tones abdominal and gluteal muscles.

It’s also earned FDA-approval as the world’s first and only non-invasive butt lift, making Emsculpt an excellent alternative to a Brazilian butt lift or injectable butt augmentation.

The Science Behind Emsculpt

While other body contouring devices use controlled cooling (CoolSculpting), heating (SculpSure), or radiofrequency (Vanquish), Emsculpt employs high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to eliminate fat and strengthen muscles.

During treatment, this energy is passes through skin to force a series of 20,000 powerful muscle contractions. Unlike muscle contractions that are achieved with exercise, Emsculpt-induced contractions do not allow for a period of relaxation.

As result, they produce significant muscle growth and fat cell destruction that cannot be achieved through a fitness regimen or personal training.

Does Emsculpt Really Work?

Emsculpt’s ability to burn fat and boost muscle was put to the test in seven US-based clinical studies, with over 200 patients.

Researchers evaluated treatment results through photos, measurements, CT imaging, and MRI studies.

Their findings demonstrated fat loss, muscle definition, buttock lifting, and a high rate of patient satisfaction after a series of four Emsculpt sessions:

  • 19% reduction in subcutaneous fat
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 5 inches lost in waist circumference
  • 80% patients noted visible lifting of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction

How Many Emsculpt Treatments Are Recommended?

For optimal fat reduction and muscle toning, a series of four Emsculpt treatments spaced two-to-three days apart is recommended.
