What Is Emsculpt, and What Areas Does It Treat?

Haven’t heard of Emsculpt yet? We’re not surprised. The treatment technology has only been on the market for about two years, and it is just now starting to gain traction in popularity. We have this innovative and noninvasive electromagnetic device in our office, and we are proud to offer services for several treatment areas.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a new noninvasive procedure that can be used to increase muscle tone and strength. It can be used in problem areas where muscles are hard to tone or have a long way to go. If you’ve just lost weight and need to tone up, this treatment can help speed up the process. You can also improve muscle tone and stimulate new muscle tissue.

Emsculpt works using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFE) waves to cause supramaximal contractions in the muscles. These contractions are more effective in toning and building muscle than voluntary contractions. Especially if you have a chronic condition that limits your ability to exercise, this can be the only solution to build muscle, tone, and look and feel your best.

How do Emsculpt and Coolsculpting Differ?

You might think that Emsculpt and Coolsculpting refer to the same types of procedures, but you would be wrong. Even though the names sound similar, they are completely different. As mentioned, Emsculpt uses HIFE technology to tone muscles. Coolsculpting, on the other hand, uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, killing them so they can be naturally flushed from the body. Even though Coolsculpting also sculpts the body, Emsculpt is the only FDA approved treatment that will tone the muscles instead of just cutting the fat.

What are the most common treatment areas for Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is most often used for treating the following areas:


The buttocks can be a hard area to tone, especially if you haven’t been very active for a while. Many people get a Brazilian butt lift to correct these issues, but you can do it more naturally and without invasive procedures by getting the Emsculpt treatment. It will tighten and build up the muscle so that you have a naturally well-shaped behind.


Abdominal muscles are so hard to tone, especially if you have some physical limitations. There is no substitute for crunches as the best method to tone your abs, but the Emsculpt procedure is a close second. It will help you tone your abs for a slimmer and more fit look.


Some of the most common places needing toning are your upper arms, upper thighs, and calves. All of these treatment areas can also be addressed with the Emsculpt procedure.
