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 Notice 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?

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.


5 Reasons Emsculpt is perfect for Busy Moms

Many women struggle to regain their figures after having children, and most have difficulty hitting the gym on a regular basis. However, getting a lean and sculpted physique can be a challenge even for those that consistently workout, as it’s impossible to determine exactly how and where your body will burn fat and build muscle.

Fortunately, Emsculpt is a revolutionary procedure that’s FDA-approved to reduce fat and increase muscle in the abdomen and buttocks, without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. These benefits make Emsculpt an ideal treatment for women looking to slim and define their waistlines and lift and firm their backsides.

Here are five reasons that Emsculpt is perfect for busy moms.

1. Emsculpt is a 2-in-1 Procedure That Burns Fat and Builds Muscle

Other non-invasive body contouring treatments promise sculpting effects, but only eliminate fat above the muscle. This means that, after undergoing a fat-removal procedure, busy moms are still tasked with going to the gym to strengthen and tone their abdominal and gluteal muscles.

Comparatively, Emsculpt’s innovative application of high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy allows it to simultaneously eliminate unwanted fat and increase muscle mass.

As a result, patients can achieve leaner and more-defined abs and a firmer backside, without the need for tiresome crunches or squats.

2. It Effectively Targets Trouble Spots

Emsculpt for Moms

Whether due to pregnancy or the natural aging process, many women find that their abdomen and buttocks are particularly problematic. They may have a flabby belly from localized pockets of fat and weakened muscles or sagging or flattened buttocks from decreased volume and tone.

Emsculpt’s ability to precisely tighten, tone, lift, and sculpt the abs and backside are just another reason Emsculpt is perfect for busy moms.

3. Emsculpt is Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive, and Requires Zero Downtime

Rather than relying on incisions and general anesthesia, Emsculpt transforms the abdomen and buttocks with non-invasive paddles that gently rest on the treatment area.

These applicators don’t even suction or pinch the skin, which can occur with some other body contouring devices, and the procedure is virtually painless.

Best of all, there’s absolutely no recovery. Meaning that busy moms, with jam-packed schedules and overloaded to-do lists, won’t have any disruption to their daily routines.

4. It’s Quick and Convenient

Unlike surgery that takes place in a surgical center or hospital, Emsculpt can be performed in the comfort of your doctor’s office.

The treatment takes just 30 minutes, and moms can rest and relax while the Emsculpt device does the equivalent of 20,000 squats or crunches.

5. Emsculpt Allows Women to Regain Pre-Pregnancy Body Naturally

While a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty can produce dramatic results, these procedures are very invasive and the changes are permanent.

That being said, Emsculpt is perfect for busy moms that want to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies in a more natural way. For the right candidate, Emsculpt is a safe and effective way that women can achieve a leaner and toned mid-section and lifted, rounder, and tighter buttocks, without the commitment and finality of surgery.
