EMSculpt is the world’s only procedure to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat. This non-surgical, no downtime, FDA-approved procedure sculpts and defines select muscle regions, creating tighter abs and firmer buttocks. The results are dramatic. On the abdominal wall, the treatment improves muscle definition that you are already seeing from your fitness routine and addresses that stubborn inch of fat on your stomach that just won’t go away. And on the buttocks, Emsculpt technology delivers the world’s first non-invasive butt lift procedure, giving you the curvature, tone, and lift that squats alone can’t achieve.
Tribeca Skin Center is lower Manhattan’s only Board-certified dermatology office to have the EMSculpt, giving patients access to the same therapy that world-class athletes use to repair and rebuild muscles.
Before & After Photos
How does EMSculpt work?
The non-invasive HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology induces powerful muscle contractions in a 30 minute treatment, the equivalent of 20,000 crunches (when treating the abs) or 20,000 squats (when treating the buttocks). Additionally, these electromagnetic pulses cause a metabolic reaction within the treatment area that strengthens and builds muscles while eliminating fat cells. The result is a deep remodeling and toning of your abdominal wall or the ideal curvature, tone and lift to your buttocks. Clinical studies show an 16% average increase in muscle mass and 19% average reduction in subcutaneous fat.
Who is a good candidate?
EMSculpt is the ideal treatment for both men and women who live a healthy lifestyle but desire a more defined abdomen, a stronger core, a reduction in lower belly pouch, or a fuller, rounder butt. The revolutionary treatment gives patients real muscle definition and thins out the layer of fat above, allowing patients to achieve fitness goals that remain out of reach. EMSculpt is also an effective treatment for post-partum diastasis recti. Patients who are pregnant, have had hernia mesh repair, have metal hardware in the treatment area, or metal IUDs should not be treated.
What does an EMSculpt treatment feel like?
The EMSculpt treatment is painless. Most patients say it feels like an intense workout, except you are laying down and relaxing during the treatment. During the session, electromagnetic energy stimulates muscle contractions, destroying fat cells and promoting muscle development in the process. Unlike other fat reduction techniques, EmSculpt employs an electromagnetic field technology that targets precise areas to tone select muscle groups and rid the body of unwanted fat.
When will I see results?
You will begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for the next few months following the treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
You will need 2 EMSculpt treatments for 2 weeks for a total of 4 treatments. The treatment time is about 30 minutes for the abdominal area and/or 30 minutes for the buttocks. There is no harm in maintenance sessions after the initial treatments as desired, because of the easy non-invasive nature of EMSculpt.
What is the downtime?
EMSculpt is a no downtime procedure giving you the freedom to return to your daily activities immediately post treatment. After the treatment, you may be slightly sore for 24-48 hours, similar to the soreness after an intense workout.
Can I do EMSculpt with truSculpt?
Yes and Yes! EMSculpt can be combined with Vanquish ME and/or truSculpt for more fat reduction, even quicker results, and more defined muscle tone. Your Tribeca Skin Center Board-certified dermatologist can put together a recommended treatment plan based on your BMI and desired results.
What do I need to do before my first treatment?
Drinking a lot of water the day of and the day after your treatments will enhance your results.
