Working towards your exercise goals can be an uphill battle, even with a strict diet and workout routine. Achieving sculpted abs or contoured buttocks can be difficult, especially when factoring in genetics, prior pregnancies, and the amount of time devoted to working out.

EMSCULPT® is a non-surgical, hands-free device that uses electromagnetic stimulation to build muscle and disrupt fat. This revolutionary treatment boosts muscle growth, tones and contours targeted treatment areas, and slims your overall physique. While other procedures focus on fat disruption, EMSCULPT® targets the deep musculature, creating intense muscle contractions to build and tone.

If you are tired of spending all your time at the gym only to see lackluster results, EMSCULPT® can take your body contouring to the next level. With customizable treatments, you can choose the area you’d like to target, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, or calves. Not only does EMSCULPT® build and tone the muscle for a sleeker, more chiseled appearance, but you can experience increased strength and stamina, improving your overall athletic performance.

How Can EMSCULPT® Elevate My Physique?

EMSCULPT® treatments use HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology) to stimulate supra-maximal contractions in the muscle, which are impossible to achieve through normal exercise. One 30-minute EMSCULPT® session targeting the abdominal muscles results in contractions equivalent to 20,000 crunches. This is an unprecedented technology that builds muscle far beyond the capabilities of voluntary exercise.

The primary purpose of EMSCULPT® is muscle growth. The muscle is broken down and repaired through these intense contractions, resulting in more significant muscle tissue development. It is the same process as when you work out — but there is no effort on your part.

As the muscle grows, fat is naturally disrupted, making fat loss a secondary benefit of EMSCULPT®. In clinical studies, patients have reported an average of 16% muscle growth and 19% fat reduction. Additionally, patients struggling with abdominal muscle separation (diastasis recti) from prior weight gain or pregnancy may see up to an 11% reduction — a condition previously requiring surgical correction.

Patients who work out regularly but aren’t seeing the results of their hard work can finally see contoured abs, toned thighs, and defined buttocks. Even athletes can experience better stamina, greater muscle density, and better results.

Consultation and Preparation

To ensure you are in good health and get the most out of your procedure, you will have a consultation with Diamond Face Institute.

Pain-Free Session

You will be in a reclined position for optimal comfort during your treatment. Your technician will attach the EMSCULPT® applicator directly to the target area, where the machine will get to work. While you will feel these contractions, they will be tolerable, with little-to-no pain. Many patients claim it feels more like a vibrating sensation.

Immediately following your treatment, you may feel some muscle soreness and slight fatigue in the area. Some patients also experience slight redness to the skin, which dissipates shortly. You can resume your normal activities immediately after your EMSCULPT® session, although you should wait to exercise to give your body time to rest.

Addressing Any Concerns You May Have

How Much Do EMSCULPT® Treatments Cost?

Your EMSCULPT® treatment protocol is specifically designed for you, including the particular areas of concern and how many sessions you require for optimal results. Because of this, pricing will vary.

During your initial consultation, our specialists at Diamond Face Institute will give you a personalized estimate based on your treatment plan.

Does EMSCULPT® Actually Work?

EMSCULPT® is proven to aid in the development of muscle, the elimination of fat cells, and the lifting of specific areas. While these benefits are expected, result quality and longevity vary depending on the amount of fat and prior muscle mass before treatment. Effects are best when you have an established workout regimen and a healthy lifestyle.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated With EMSCULPT®?

Other than normal muscle soreness, no reported adverse side effects are associated with EMSCULPT®.

Frequently Asked Questions About EMSCULPT®

Am I a candidate for EMSCULPT®?

While generally safe and effective, EMSCULPT® is not for everyone. Patients with metal implants in the treatment areas or pacemakers and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have EMSCULPT® treatments.

Additionally, EMSCULPT® works best for patients who are close to their ideal weight. It is not intended as a weight loss treatment.

How many EMSCULPT® sessions will I need?

Depending on the treatment plan, patients typically have at least four 30-minute sessions scheduled two to five days apart.

How soon will I see results from my EMSCULPT® treatments?

Immediately following your EMSCULPT® treatment, you will feel soreness and fatigue similar to an intense workout — this means it is working! Visible results usually take two to four weeks after your final session to show. Patients will see continual improvement for several weeks after treatment.

Will my EMSCULPT® results be permanent?

Muscle growth from EMSCULPT® treatments lasts an average of six months. However, it is possible to maintain and build upon the initial muscle growth.

How can I maintain my EMSCULPT® results?

The best way to maintain the results of your EMSCULPT® treatments is through consistent diet and exercise. After completing your EMSCULPT® sessions, you can experience greater muscle strength and stamina, making your workouts easier and more effective. It’s a good idea to capitalize on this by establishing a consistent routine to maintain your results.
