When 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.
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.
The following conditions exclude a candidate from Emsculpt:
Although the treatment may be performed on patients with higher BMI’s and muscles may still be strengthened, fat will cover the muscle definition.
Emsculpt 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.
The 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 to help promote and maintain results.
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.

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. 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 intensity is adjustable to your comfort level, so that you never feel pain. The goal is to reach 100% intensity to derive the maximum benefit from the treatment. Most patients will be able to comfortably treated at 100% intensity by the second session. After the session, resume normal activities.
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 $750. A treatment plan of 4 sessions is always needed. They can be paid individually, or as part of a package. Discounts apply to packages so inquire at your personal consultation. Once a patient has completed the initial package of treatments, maintenance packages are available at an even greater discount. We want you to maintain your results.
Because of minimum advertised pricing (MAP) rules, we are not allowed to post our package pricing or office specials. Please do not ask us for a price on the phone either. We do not know if we are being audited by the manufacturer of Emsculpt, and cannot risk the penalty of being caught advertising below the minimum advertised price.
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.
There are financing options, such as Care Credit available.
Prior patients who have had CoolSculpting, liposuction, or a tummy tuck, are immediately eligible for an additional discount on their first treatment plan as returning preferred patients.
