Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt Washington DC

Non-invasive body contouring treatments have become increasingly popular over the past several years. In fact, they’ve skyrocketed 25 percent in the past year alone, according to American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

While these technologies have been successful in targeting stubborn fat pockets, patients weren’t flaunting chiseled abs or a rounder, perkier backside afterwards. That’s because none of these devices target muscles beneath the fat that they melt or freeze.

BTL Aesthetics recognized this deficiency and created Emsculpt–the first and only non-invasive body contouring treatment that burns fat and builds muscle for abdominal definition and buttock lifting and firming.

Sounds amazing, but some may be suspect of exercise and surgery-free abs. So, does Emsculpt work?

Here’s everything you need to know.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is an innovative technology that is taking body contouring to the next level with its ability to simultaneously burn fat and build muscle. This duality produces unparalleled toning and strengthening of the abdomen and lifting and firming of the buttocks.

Best of all, Emsculpt is FDA-approved, entirely non-invasive, painless, and has zero-downtime.

How Does Emsculpt Burn Fat and Build Muscle?

During an Emsculpt treatment, paddles are secured to the abdomen or buttocks and deliver electromagnetic waves that act on fat and muscle. As the device stimulate three phases of supramaximal muscle contractions, fat cells in the treatment area implode and die and muscle tissue becomes thicker and stronger.

In fact, a 30-minute Emsculpt treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches or squats. However, Emsculpt-produced muscle contractions are much more intense that what’s possible through physical training.

Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt’s efficacy has been tested and proven in seven independent clinical trials, with over 200 patients.

Following a series of four Emsculpt sessions, treatment benefits were analyzed via photography, measurements, ultrasound, CT, MRI imaging, and self-assessment, with the following average results:

  • 19% reduction in subcutaneous fat
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% improvement in diastasis recti
  • 80% of patients noted visible lifting of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction

In addition to these findings, Emsculpt has also demonstrated high patient satisfaction and impressive fat reduction, toning, firming, and lifting in a clinical setting.

When asked “Does Emsculpt Work?” 92 percent of RealSelf users, that underwent Emsculpt and provided patient reviews, confirmed that the treatment is “Worth It!”

When Are Results Visible?

Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt results can often be felt immediately after the first treatment. However, it can take two-to-four weeks to note increased abdominal definition and enhanced shape and perkiness of buttocks.

These benefits usually peak at three months, but can continue to improve for up to six months.
