While we do not believe anyone NEEDS body sculpting or fat reduction treatments, we understand that the natural aging process, child-bearing, certain medical conditions, and simply going through life can leave you unsatisfied with your physique or physical ability. At Chinn GYN, Your Chinn GYN Team offers a variety of treatments, including Emsculpt®, Emsculpt NEO®, and Emerald Laser® for body contouring services, aimed at reducing fat and improving muscle strength and definition. To learn more about our body sculpting services, give us a call or schedule an appointment online today!

Body Sculpting Q&A

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a revolutionary body contouring device that uses radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity electromagnetic energy (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.

What is the Emerald Laser?

The Emerald laser is a phenomenal treatment that reduces the size of fat cells by emulsifying the membrane around the cell, allowing fatty acids to move freely out of the cell. This makes the fat bio-available to burn, rather than stored in the cell. By doing so, the Emerald Laser puts you into a catabolic effect and allows your metabolism to tap into your stored energy and burn fat with ease!

How does Emsculpt work?

Emsculpt is a noninvasive device that uses high intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) 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 with exercise. 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. Creating all of this muscle requires energy, of course, so many patients see a significant fat-reduction effect as well!

The Emsculpt Neo, which we also offer, takes things a step further by combining radio-frequency (RF) and HIFEM+ energies to contribute in an even greater fashion to both fat reduction and muscle building!

Which areas can Emsculpt treat? How about the Emerald Laser?

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, or combine with the Emerald Laser for even more substantial results!

Emerald Laser treatments can be done ANYWHERE on the body- the sky is the limit! We are able to effectively treat all of the areas above, as well as many other spots you would like to see a reduction in. Some of the more popular treatment areas are:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Upper back fat/bra-line
  • Under the chin
  • "Dowager's Hump", or the back of the neck

All of these are areas that can effectively be treated with a completely pain-free treatment!

How many Emsculpt treatments do I need? How about Emerald?

For Classic Emsculpt, we typically recommend a minimum of four treatments, spaced about two to three days apart. For Emsculpt Neo, we reccomend a minimum of 4 sessions done once weekly. 

The Emerald laser can be done in a series of 6+ for significant aesthetic changes- some people do it every month to continue to see improvement in their results!

It typically takes about 12 weeks to see your best possible clinical results from both Emsculpt and Emerald treatments.

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.

Will 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.

That being said, we can combine both Emsculpt and Emerald treatments for a phenomenal weight loss effect- we call this our Melt 'n Sculpt package!

We would love to help you understand fully the options we have and help you acheive your goals when it comes to your body- you live in it every day, and you should feel as amazing as possible in all of your activities, never held back by something you feel you can't change.
