EMSCULPT Non-Invasive Muscle Toning and Fat Removal

Newport Coast Dermatology if the FIRST dermatology practice in Orange County, CA to provide EMSCULPT to tone abdomens and lift the buttocks. Dr. Grace Liu is one of a few elite physicians nationwide to unveil this non-invasive, non-surgical, no pain approach to eliminate unwanted fat and build muscle. Dr. Liu serves as a clinical investigator, advisory board member, speaker and consultant for BTL, the company that makes EMSCULPT.

What is Emsculpt?

EMSCULPT is a completely new device that is in a body-contouring class of its own. It’s the first FDA-cleared energy device approved to burn fat and build muscle mass. It’s a no-downtime, pain-free, non-surgical way to define the abs and lift the buttocks.

EMSCULPT contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. These results are backed by 7 clinical studies showing fat loss as well as defines and sculpted muscles to the abdomen and buttocks following a series of 4 treatments.

HIFEM – High Intensity, Focused Electro Magnetic energy, meaning EMSCULPT produces magnetic energy that creates “supermaximal” muscle contractions. It uses a series of different patterns of muscle contractions during treatment to stimulate muscle work beyond what you can get through a personal trainer with strength training alone.

A single EMSCULPT treatment is the equivalent of doing approximately 20,000 sit ups or squats. This muscle contraction leads to building of new muscle mass (increased tone and muscle definition) as well as enhanced fat metabolism through lipolysis, or destruction of fat cells. EMSCULPT burns fat and tones muscle in the abdominal and buttocks region without pain, downtime or sweating it out at the gym.

What results are typical following EMSCULPT?

BTL, the manufacturer of EMSCULPT, conducted 7 studies with over 200 patients on the abdomen and buttocks. The studies show how effective EMSUCLPT is at burning fat and increasing muscle mass. They measured fat and muscle with imaging (CT scans and MRI studies), comparing photos before and after treatment, and measuring changed in waistline measurements.

On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:

  • 19% reduction of fat
  • 4 cm (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
  • 5x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
  • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction

*Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of specific results. Results May vary.

How many EMSUCLPT treatments are needed?

Clinical studies with EMSCULPT for abdomen and buttocks treated patients for 30 minutes, twice a week for 2 weeks, a total of 4 treatments. Typically, one treatment every 3-6 months for maintenance is required to maintain results.

Who is a good candidate for EMSCULPT?

Adults in good shape who desire more definition of their abs or lifting of the buttocks are ideal candidates for EMSCULPT. EMSCULPT is well-suited for those who workout but just can’t seem to get a six-pack or perky derriere. Good candidates are already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

What areas of the body can be treated with EMSCULPT?

EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared for the abdomen and buttocks. However, other areas of the body may benefit from increased tone and fat reduction. Areas well-suited for treatment may include:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs


EMSCULPT Treatment FAQ

What does EMSCULPT feel like? Does it hurt?

EMSCULPT is not painful, it simply feels like a series of strong muscle contractions. Thinner patients may feel EMSCULPT more, and decreased energies may be used during the treatment. Many patients tend to instinctively smile or laugh during the first few minutes, then the body adapts to the rhythm of muscle contractions and it’s easily tolerated.

How much fat will I lose with a series of EMSCULPT treatments?

According to clinical studies, patients had an average of a 20% reduction in fat and a 1.5 inch average loss in waistline measurements following a series of 4 EMSCULPT treatments.

How much muscle mass will I tone with a series of EMSCULPT?

In clinical studies, patients gained 16% muscle mass after a series of 4 treatments with EMSCULPT.

How should I prepare for an EMSCULPT treatment?

No preparation is required prior to EMSCULPT treatments. As your muscles in the treatment area will be strongly contracting, prepare as you would prior to a rigorous strength training session at the gym. Empty your bladder and avoid a full meal immediately prior to treatment.

How long is an EMSCULPT treatment session? How many treatments will I need?

An EMSCULPT treatment session lasts 30 minutes. Clinical studies on EMSCULPT were done as a series of 4 treatments total – twice weekly for 2 weeks.

What should I expect immediately after EMSCULPT treatment?

The area of treatment may be mildly sore, similar to a strength training workout. This may persist for a day following the treatment.

Is there any downtime following EMSCULPT treatment?

No, the majority of patients immediately resume normal activates following treatment.

How long does it take to see results following EMSCULPT?

Some patients notice increased muscle tone of the abs one day following treatment. The roughly 16% increase in muscle mass and 20% reduction in fat were measured 2 months after the 4th treatment.

Does EMSCULPT help disatasis recti (abdominal muscle separation after pregnancy)?

Yes, clinical studies demonstrate an 11% reduction in diastasis recti following 4 treatments with EMSCULPT. Diastasis recti is a medical term describing separation of abdominal muscles. In extreme cases, it can cause a midline hernia (ventral hernia) or bulging of abdominal tissues. This most commonly occurs during pregnancy, as the belly increases in size to accommodate a growing baby. The increasing size of the womb stretches the abdominal muscles, leading to diastasis recti. EMSCULPT offers the first non-surgical means of improving diastasis recti.

Who is a poor candidate for EMSCULPT? Are there contraindications?

Patient with significant fat stores may not be ideal candidates for EMSCULPT. The HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to post EMSCULPT penetrates to about 7 cm. Those with thicker fat stores may not get as significant of muscle contraction, resulting in less results following treatment.

Pregnant and nursing females should not undergo treatment with EMSCULPT.

Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner or cramping is increased/intensified with EMSCULPT treatments, therefore we recommend not undergoing treatment during this time of the month Possible contraindications to treatment include the following:

  • Metal or electronic implants in the treatment area
  • Cardiac pacemakers
  • Implanted defibrillators
  • Implanted neurostimulators
  • Drug pumps
  • Malignant tumor
  • Hemorrhagic conditions
  • Epilepsy
  • Recent surgical procedures

Is EMSCULPT a TENS device?

No, but it is the closest analogy to HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to power EMSCULPT. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) devices, produce small amounts of battery-powered electrical energy to stimulate muscle contractions. TENS devices are used to treat pain disorders. EMSCULPT, on the other hand, is an extremely powerful device measured in Tesla, a measurement of magnetic induction often to describe MRI imaging. EMSCULPT is capable of producing supraphysiologic contraction of muscles and is exponentially more powerful than a TENS device.

Is EMSCULPT safe? Are there any side effects from EMSCULPT treatment?

Yes, focused electromagnetic energy from EMSCULPT is considered safe. As mentioned previously, mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is an expected side effect from EMSCULPT.

Can EMSCULPT be combined with other body sculpting treatments?

Yes, EMSCULPT can be combined with non-invasive fat removal procedures like CoolSculpting and Vanquish to enhance fat reduction.

Is fat loss and increased muscle mass permanent following EMSCULPT treatment?

Fat cells destroyed by increased fat metabolism with EMSCULPT is permanent. However, Weight gain causes remaining fat cells to grow, leasing to possible loss of effect. Muscle mass is not permanent, but likely lasts 6 months or longer. Periodic EMSCULPT treatments can maintain the muscle tone achieved from the initial series of EMSCULPT treatments.

What happens if I gain weight following EMSCULPT treatment?

A healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise maintenance, is encouraged following your series of EMSCULPT treatments. An increase in weight will allow fat stores to accumulate. This may occur disproportionately in areas untreated by EMSCULPT.

How much does EMSCULPT cost?

EMSCULPT is sold as a package of four treatments. Periodic maintenance with a single treatment every 3-6 months is encouraged. A single treatment of EMSCULPT ranges nationally from $750-$1500 per treatment.
