EmSculpt is the first and only FDA approved, non-surgical, non-invasive body sculpting procedure proven to strengthen, tone, and firm the biceps, triceps, calves, buttocks and abdomen, while also reducing unwanted fat. Using HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology, EmSculpt induces muscle contractions similar to those experienced while the muscles do a sit-up, squat, or weight lifting. In fact, the HIFEM energy communicates with motor neurons and creates supramaximal muscle contractions that could not be achieved through normal means. A single EmSculpt session is comparable to performing 20,000 squats, sit-ups, or reps, depending on the treatment area of focus. After the muscles and fat tissue have been exposed to the supramaximal contractions, a metabolic reaction called supramaximal lipolysis begins. This metabolic reaction initiates fat cell apoptosis (programmed cell death).
Watch Dr. Day demonstrate EmSculpt treatments on ABC’s The View in July of 2018 on national TV.
Each session typically takes 30-40 minutes. Dr. Day generally recommends six EmSculpt Sessions scheduled approximately 2-3 days apart, but this may vary depending on each patient’s individual goals. EmSculpt is often described by patients as feeling like an intense muscle workout. However, instead of sweating in the gym, patients are lying down and relaxing during the whole treatment. Results can be felt right after treatment and seen two to four weeks after the last session. Continued improvement can be seen over the course of several weeks following treatment. There is zero downtime after an EmSculpt treatment.
The ideal candidate for EmSculpt is at or around their goal weight, as it works best for removing the most stubborn fat and adding overall tone. Additionally, ideal candidates for EmSculpt should not have any metal implants or devices.
