Even if you currently follow a strict diet and exercise plan, you may have found that some areas of your body are still in need of improvement. Fortunately, a revolutionary body contouring treatment has arrived and it’s called EMSCULPT. NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr. Darren Smith delivers EMSCULPT to defined muscles and increased muscle mass without exercise.
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is an innovative, cutting-edge device explicitly designed to treat problem areas that have been difficult to remedy with diet and exercise. By utilizing High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy (HIFEM), EMSCULPT can dissolve fat and build up muscle mass in the area treated. This highly focused energy creates what is known as “supramaximal” muscle contractions. These contractions are created in the body when you are at your highest level of exertion. They are far more powerful than the muscle contractions of regular exercises such as sit-ups or crunches.

What should I expect during my EMSCULPT treatment?
EMSCULPT does not require any pre-treatment or numbing preparation, as it is entirely pain-free. Many find the EMSCULPT treatment to feel similar to that of an intense workout – without the exertion. Most patients smile or laugh during the first portion of the procedure before becoming familiar with the sensation of super-rapid muscle contractions. Because EMSCULPT carries no downtime, you may return to your regular activities immediately after treatment.
What areas can be treated with EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is FDA-cleared for sculpting and toning the following areas:
Additionally, it is used effectively on several other areas of the body, including:
More than one area can be treated in a single appointment.
How many treatments of EMSCULPT will I need?
The initial treatments will be twice a week for four weeks. After the first four treatments are complete, maintenance visits may be required to maintain results. Depending on the individual and his or her aesthetic goals, maintenance visits may vary from once a month to once a year. Results with EMSCULPT improve for several months following your initial series of treatments.
What are the side effects of EMSCULPT?
You may experience a sensation of muscle soreness after your treatment. It is possible for some patients to feel fatigued, similar to after a tough workout. After a regular workout, lactic acid builds up in the muscles and creates soreness for many individuals. EMSCULPT contractions clear lactic acid from the muscles and this factor helps to prevent excessive muscle soreness.
How long will it take to see results?
Every person varies, with some noticing changes as early as within a day or two. Most people see a dramatic difference in about one month, with maximum effect at three months. Your muscles require some time to rebuild – just like they do with exercise.
