Many popular body-contouring procedures target unwanted fat with cold temperatures and light-based energy, but do not have any effect on the weak muscles underneath fat.

This deficit limits the true sculpting abilities of current technologies, as muscle comprises 35 percent of the body and is an essential component of achieving a lean and defined physique.

BTL Aesthetics recognized the importance of muscle in body contouring and developed Emsculpt, the first and only non-invasive device that melts fat and builds muscle.

In addition to this achievement, Emsculpt also has the distinction of providing a non-surgical butt lift and improvement of abdominal separation (diastasis recti).

Keep reading for everything you need to know about this groundbreaking procedure.

What Is Emsculpt and How Does It Work?

Emsculpt is a body contouring treatment that can reduce subcutaneous fat and increase muscle without surgery, incisions, or any downtime.

It uses a unique high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to initiate a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions in the abdomen and buttocks.

These forced contractions do not allow a relaxation period and are more powerful than voluntary contractions that occur with exercise.

As a result, fat is broken down and muscles are strengthened for a defined abdomen and firmer and rounder buttocks.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?

Any healthy adult that wants to reduce fat up to 24 percent and increase muscle mass up to 16 percent can benefit from Emsculpt. Ideal candidates are often men and women that are already fit, but want to take their body to the next level.

Additionally, Emsculpt is an excellent alternative for patients that are seeking an improvement in the size, shape, and position of their backside without injections or a surgical butt augmentation.

Lastly, this revolutionary device can also help moms that suffer from diastasis recti to tighten abdominal muscles and decrease their belly pooch.

How Long Does an Emsculpt Treatment Take?

Each Emsculpt session of the abdomen or buttocks takes 30 minutes. Patients can recline during treatment and most find it very tolerable. Some report that it feels like an intense workout, but without any effort on their part.

Afterwards, they can resume all normal activities and may be slightly sore the next day.

When Can Patients Note Results?

For optimal fat destruction and toning, a series of four Emsculpt treatments spaced two-to-three days apart is recommended. Improvement can be noted two-to-four weeks after the last session and will continue to improve for up to three months.


Emsculpt for Men

While other body contouring treatments only address fat and skin, Emsculpt is a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle.

This distinction is what sets Emsculpt apart and can help men achieve a leaner, stronger, and more defined abdomen, without surgery, incisions, or downtime.

Emsculpt is also the world’s first and only non-surgical butt lift, and it has been shown to improve diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles).

So, is Emsculpt right for you?  Keep reading to learn all about Emsculpt for men and what you can expect should you decide to undergo this innovative treatment.

Why Would Guys Be Interested in Trying Emsculpt for Men?

Emsculpt for men is a safe and effective way to add definition and tone to your physique, while eliminating stubborn fat pockets.

It is completely non-invasive and each treatment takes only 30 minutes. Emsculpt is also painless and has zero-downtime, so it will not disrupt to your busy schedule or daily routine.

Additionally, Emsculpt’s high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy causes supramaximal muscle contractions that cannot be achieved through even the most rigorous exercise.

Therefore, it can take your body to the next level in a way that’s not possible with your regular fitness regimen.

What Happens Before an Emsculpt Treatment?

Emsculpt for Men Chevy Chase

Prior to undergoing Emsculpt for men, patients will have a thorough consultation to ensure that the treatment is right for them.

The actual procedure takes just 30 minutes, and most guys see optimal results from a series of 4 sessions space 2-3 days apart.

What Occurs During the Procedure?

During the treatment, Emsculpt’s paddle-shaped applicator stimulates abdominal muscles and gluteal muscles to force supramaximal muscle contractions.

This activity is so powerful that it causes thickening, strengthening, and firming of muscles and releases free-fatty acids that overwhelm and destroy fat cells.

How Soon Can You See Results After Having Emsculpt?

Each Emsculpt treatment is the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or squats and feels similar to an intense workout. Men often see a noticeable increase in muscle mass and decrease in subcutaneous fat in as little and two-to-four weeks.

Over the course of the next three months, the abdomen and buttocks will appear more toned and defined and the body takes on a truly-sculpted look. These effects will continue to improve for up to six months.
