Key FAQs About EMSculpt
If you’re considering EMSculpt for yourself or a loved one, you only naturally will have questions about the procedure, its safety and efficacy, and potentially other concerns. Getting detailed answers to these questions is vitally important, so that you can make a wise and educated choice about whether EMSculpt is right for you— and, so that you can have peace of mind about the treatment process once you decide to move forward. What follow are answers to commonly asked questions regarding EMSculpt.
What is EMSculpt and how does it work?
EMSculpt uses non-invasive HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to therapeutically target and trim fat away in specific areas of the body. HIFEM energy waves produce supramaximal muscle contractions in the targeted area. These contractions occur at a speed and intensity level that is exponentially higher than what you might achieve in a HIT cardio workout. Ultimately, EMSculpt works with your body’s own natural metabolic process, in essence supporting and accelerating this process so that it can work much more efficiently for you, quickly removing fat and replacing it with muscle. The beauty of EMSculpt is that this transformation happens without surgery, painlessly, non-invasively and without the downtime that a more complicated surgical procedure would require.
What areas of the body can EMSculpt treat?
EMSculpt technology can be used with precision to target specific areas of the body. Whether it’s a non-invasive tummy tuck, butt lift or the sculpting of thighs, flanks or arms, this service is versatile at addressing a range of goals in the realm of body aesthetics.
Will this procedure hurt and is it safe?
EMSculpt is pain-free. The only sensation you’ll experience is a feeling of micro vibrations at the site where treatment occurs (whether in your glutes, abdomen, etc.). The sensation can feel as if your muscles are slightly tensing then releasing. As for its safety— EMSculpt has been approved by the FDA as both safe and effective. That means that it has proven safe in numerous independent clinical trials.

Why choose EMSculpt over other routes to a fitter and more youthful version of yourself? What are the benefits of this service over others?
There are many benefits to choosing EMSculpt over other body contouring methods:
- The procedure achieves arguably better results than other surgical options, and without the pain, invasiveness (and potential risks and complications!), and downtime.
- Other body contouring methods may help you remove fat but don’t produce muscle.
- You get much quicker and more painless results than what you get from visits to the gym or from other dieting/fat reduction efforts.
- The treatments are quick, convenient and easily completed within a relatively short period of time.
- The results are significant: Clients typically experience a 19% decrease in fat and a 16% increase in muscle in the treated area.
- The procedure can safely be repeated as desired or in different parts of the body.
Am I a good candidate for EMSculpt?
Not everyone is a good candidate for EMSculpt. If you’re someone who already follows a healthy lifestyle and is looking to burn away that last inch of stubborn fat—in the waistline or elsewhere—you’re a good candidate for EMSculpt. Those who may be considering EMSculpt because of a severe weight problem can benefit from the procedure. (I try to reframe expectations about what the EMSculpt can do for them.) Ultimately, this service will achieve optimal, lasting results when it’s paired with a healthy regimen of diet, exercise, and other good habits.
How long is treatment, and how long will it take for me to see results?
Most clients need a minimum of four 30-minute sessions across a period of two weeks before they’re able to see any results. For those looking to achieve maximum results, I recommend 4-6 weeks of treatment, consisting of two weekly, 30-minute sessions.
Are the results permanent, or do I have to keep coming back?
Yes and no. Remember that the results of EMSculpt are really twofold: You’ll burn away unwanted fat and you’ll also tone and strengthen your muscles. In the first case (fat removal), EMSculpt will absolutely permanently destroy fat cells in the targeted region; but further weight gain following the procedure can cause new fat cells to return. In the second case (better muscle tone), that better muscle tone may last for six months or so, but only regular exercise and a healthy diet can help to ensure that your better muscle tone hangs around. Ultimately, both two results (less fat and more muscle) can be permanent when you’re fully committed to a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise. The good news is that if later down the road you notice that you could use a bit of a reboot, you can always come back for more treatments, thanks to the safe, non-invasive nature of EMSculpt.
Can I combine this treatment with other body sculpting methods?
Yes. Because EMSculpt is a safe, non-surgical intervention, it can be combined with other non-invasive body contouring methods such as Viora.
