EmSculpt Q&A

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a revolutionary body contouring device that uses radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity electromagnetic therapy (HIFEM+) to simultaneously reduce fat and build muscle. As a result, you can expect fewer pockets of fat and more muscle definition in the treatment areas.

How does Emsculpt work?

Emsculpt is a noninvasive device that combines RF and HIFEM+ energies to trigger thousands of involuntary (but not painful) muscle contractions in the treatment area. The contractions are so powerful that you simply can’t achieve the same effects by working out. A single Emsculpt treatment session is the equivalent of 20,000 reps of exercise in just 30 minutes.

The intensity of an Emsculpt session forces the treated muscles to adapt by remodeling their tissue. Over time, the treated muscles begin to build and strengthen for a more sculpted, toned appearance.

Which areas can Emsculpt treat?

Emsculpt is a dynamic device that can reduce fat and improve muscle tone in several different areas, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks 
  • Arms
  • Calves

The team at Chinn GYN can treat multiple areas in one session to maximize your results with Emsculpt.

How many Emsculpt treatments do I need?

Many patients achieve noticeable results after one Emsculpt treatment. However, the team at Chinn GYN typically recommends four treatments, spaced about two to three days apart, for long-term success. It typically takes about 12 weeks to see your best possible clinical results from Emsculpt.

Do Emsculpt treatments hurt?

Emsculpt treatments feel like a very intense workout but shouldn’t be painful. While your muscles may be fatigued after treatment, the should note be sore – you can even lie down and relax during the session! If you do experience discomfort, the team at Chinn GYN can adjust your treatment.

Do I lose weight with Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is not a weight loss treatment. The team integrates your treatments into your whole-body health. Proper weight management is essential for Emsculpt to be effective. The best candidates are fit and healthy with stubborn pockets of unwanted fat. 

The team tailors your plan to ensure you see visible results that last. Some patients see a 20% decrease in body fat from their Emsculpt treatment regimen, due to the energy used by their body.

Do I have alternative body contouring options?

In addition to Emsculpt, Chinn GYN offers the Emerald™ laser fat reduction device. The treatment uses cold laser technology to emulsify unwanted fat in adults with a body mass index (BMI) up to 30. Not only is the Emerald laser noninvasive, but it also requires no downtime or noticeable side effects. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
