EMS Body Sculpt & Fat Reduction Treatment
When it comes to body toning and fat shedding, there is no dearth of treatment in the plastic surgery world.

Last year, a new body toning treatment entered the plastic surgery market, and it has been rocking the cosmetic surgery sphere – EMsculpt.

The procedure is no less than a revolution for the cosmetic surgery industry. It is hailed as a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that helps build muscles and burn body fat without any surgery or injections. The advantages of the procedure have rightfully caught public attention.
There is no downtime required for the treatment. Patients receiving the treatment can go back to their normal lifestyle right after the treatment.
How does it work?
According to the experts, it is a non-surgical treatment that does not use any injections either. The inspiration for the device comes from one of our very basic habits – contracting our muscles to appear slimmer and thinner.
The procedure uses electromagnetic energy to cause the muscles to contract. As already mentioned above, it is much like how we contract our muscles, but the difference is our body can only contract the muscles to a certain extent. The device put much stronger pressure on the muscles which takes the contraction to the maximum level, which is also called super maximal contractions.
When this happens, under such high pressure our body is forced to adapt to the changes causing our inner body structure to remodel itself which in itself results in fat burning and muscle building. You achieve a perfectly toned body in a matter of a few hours.
The procedure reportedly causes 20,000 supramaximal contractions, which experts say can be compared to 20,000 crunches or squats. While it may take you months and an intensive workout routine to attain the toned figure, you can attain your dream body shape with just one procedure.
How long does the procedure take?
Unlike other body toning treatments, EMsculpt does not require a huge time commitment. The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes for a single body part. If you are going to do an EMsculpt on your tummy, it will take 30 mins but if you wish to do the treatment to your thighs, it will take an hour, 30 minutes each.
EMsculpt in total requires around four sessions to achieve the desired results. The sessions are scheduled two or three days apart from each other.
How long will the results last?
EMsculpt will result in 15%-20% fat reduction and muscle building. Patients reportedly start seeing results right after the first session. After two sessions, you will see the specific body part of your body that received the treatment to be more toned than usual. You are likely to see abs if you continue to exercise regularly and follow a strict diet.
The results can last for quite a long time depending on your lifestyle. If you plan to have an active lifestyle, with lots of workouts and a strict diet, the results will last for a very long time. Experts say that you might never need another treatment at all because the change will be permanent for you. More than half of the patients who receive EMsculpt have been able to maintain their new body shape, without requiring any additional treatment.
If you plan to live a sedentary lifestyle after receiving the treatment, you will see the muscle disappearing and the fat coming back. You will need to visit your aesthetician for further treatments. Patients who require additional treatment usually need it only once a month or a year.
Are there any side effects to the procedure?
The procedure is FDA certified and there are no harmful side effects to the treatment. Although, few patients have complained of feeling a bit sore and tired after the treatment. The feeling is exactly how one feels after a long harsh workout.
The lactic acid builds up in the muscles causes’ one to feel sore. EMsculpt procedure helps clear this lactic acid buildup in the muscles, thus making sure that one does not feel too sore.
How much does the treatment cost?
The treatment cost can vary depending on the cosmetic surgeon or aesthetician you are consulting, but the treatment usually costs around $159 for each EMsculpt session.
