Male abdomenWhen you already have the 2 pack abs, how do you get the 4 pack or 6 pack? How many crunches do you need to do? It takes an extraordinary amount of exercise and diet to get definition. OR it takes Emsculpt, the first device of its kind to build muscle and sculpt the body. One Emsculpt session is the equivalent of 20,000 crunches.

Emsculpt gives a huge boost to your exercise regimen. As a non-invasive body sculpting solution, improved muscle tone has been proven through MRI, CT scan and ultrasound. This FDA cleared device is suitable for men and women of all ages for the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms.

Best Candidates

Men and women who are at or close to their ideal weight are the best candidates. They are health conscious and exercise regularly. They are looking for that extra definition that the exercise is not giving them. There is no age limitation. Patients who have had prior surgeries such as a C section, abdominoplasty or liposuction, will have scar tissue that may make the contractions more uncomfortable than usual. These candidates can be treated as long as they are fully healed and have complete feeling in the treatment area.

The following conditions exclude a candidate from Emsculpt:

  • pregnancy
  • cardiac pacemakers
  • implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators
  • electronic implants
  • pulmonary insufficiency
  • metal implants
  • drug pumps
  • hemorrhagic conditions
  • heart disorders
  • malignant tumor
  • fever
  • metallic IUD
  • epilepsy

Although the treatment may be performed on patients with higher BMI’s and muscles may still be strengthened, fat will cover the muscle definition.

How It Works

Emsculpt female buttocksEmsculpt utilizes High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to cause deep muscle stimulation. A single Emsculpt session induces 20,000 muscle contractions. All this is done without any effort on your part. Emsculpt is basically a mini MRI machine that uses therapeutic levels of magnetic fields.

According to studies done on Emsculpt, it creates about 19% muscle development. With the hypercontraction of the muscles, the fatty acids on the muscle cells leak out and create a 15% fat burn on top of the muscle building. The fat burn effect from Emsculpt is more of a residual effect from what the device is doing to the muscles. These studies were conducted with fit patients who were not overweight. See the Emsculpt clinical studies here.

Newsletter Sign UpThe treatment does not require anesthesia. Strong muscle response is essential to maximize treatment results. During the application, you will feel intense but tolerable muscle contractions in the treated area.

There are certain risks associated with Emsculpt treatments. They include but are not limited to muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, temporary joint or tendon pain, local erythema or skin redness and intramuscular fat decrease. The treatment over injured or otherwise impaired muscles is contraindicated.


Emsculpt is a completely non-invasive procedure with no recovery time. There may be mild muscle fatigue after the session. Typically, you can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment. A successful treatment outcome can be affected by smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, as well as eating disorders or on-going medication. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy and drink lots of water to help promote and maintain results.

When Results Appear

Most patients see improvement after four sessions, scheduled twice a week. There may be initial changes in as little as 2 weeks, but final results do not occur until 3 months. Some patients may need more treatments depending on their goals. The results vary from person to person, and an exact result cannot be predicted. See the Emsculpt clinical studies here.

Treatment Plan

The minimum recommended number of treatments is 4, depending on your goals and BMI. The treatment is 30 minutes per session on the machine, with sessions separated by at least 2 days. Completing a full treatment series is necessary to maximize treatment efficacy. The results start to appear in as little as 2 weeks, and will typically continue to improve over the next three months.

Before the treatment, you are not required to do anything special;  however, keeping your body well hydrated is recommended to reduce cramping. Dress comfortably on the days of treatment. Take off all jewelry and items with metal such as belt, underwire bras, coins or credit cards. Wear light clothing. Some Lululemon leggings have metallic fibers, so do not wear that brand of legging to the treatment. All electronic devices such as phones, watches, iPads, and computers must be surrendered, because the electromagnetic energy will heat metal and harm electronic devices.

There will be strong muscle contractions during the treatment. They will be intense but tolerable. The goal is to treat to your pain threshold. While it is desirable to reach 100% intensity, some patients cannot tolerate that level. As long as stomach contractions are occurring, there is benefit to the session. Patients, who are very lean, may feel stronger stomach contractions than patients who have more abdominal fat. Leaner patients may have a harder time reaching 100% intensity. After the session, resume normal activities and drink plenty of water.

Work out with a buddy, and save 50%. Two small females can share their Emsculpt sessions for the abdomen. Since there are two applicators, smaller females may only need one applicator. Have your buddy to pay you back for her share so you both benefit. Ask us for more details on dual Emsculpting.

Duration of Results

Questions? Request a Consultation.Following an exercise regimen after the treatment plan maintains the muscle built by Emsculpt for many years. It is possible that you will not need any further sessions.

For others who do not follow a consistent exercise program after the Emsculpt sessions, we recommend maintenance treatments anywhere from 6-12 months after the final session.

Muscles start to weaken and sag without continued exertion and exercise. Aging and gravity are constantly working against the anatomy. Exercising regularly is a good plan for everyone, especially those who wish to maintain their results. However, most people cannot do the amount of crunches as in one Emsculpt treatment, so treatment plans are sold in packages of 6 sessions.

Emsculpt is considered a cosmetic procedure. It is not an FSA eligible expense.

The initial consultation for Emsculpt® is free. Each Emsculpt session costs $400.  A treatment plan of 6 sessions is always needed. They can be paid individually, or as part of a package. A 25% discount applies to packages so inquire at your personal consultation. Package pricing brings it down to $300 per treatment. Once a patient has completed the initial package of 6 treatments, maintenance packages of 4 treatments for $1020 ($255 each) are available to help you maintain your results.

If exercise is not regularly performed, we recommend that maintenance session be performed 6-12 months after the initial completion of the treatment plan. It is always wiser to have a maintenance session performed before the muscles have completely sagged. Otherwise it may take 4 treatments again to get the muscles toned.

Prior FVPS patients who have had CoolSculpting, Ultimate Contour, liposuction, a tummy tuck, or other select procedures are immediately eligible for an additional discount on their first treatment plan as returning preferred patients. Ask us if your previous treatment qualifies.
