Who is Emsculpt for?
In our NYC office we use Emsculpt for patients of all ages. The device can benefit all body types but in general any body contouring procedure, including Emsculpt will work best in patients who are in relatively good shape.
What areas can be treated with Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is FDA cleared for use on the buttock, abdomen, thighs, legs, and arms.
How do I need to prepare for Emsculpt?
There is absolutely nothing you need to do to prepare for your treatment. Results will be most impressive for patients who have started on a diet that is at a calorie deficit, and is relatively high in lean protein. This healthy diet would support efforts to build muscle and to break down fat.
What is the treatment regimen?
In our New York City office we treat patients with four 30 minute treatments that are completed over the course of 2 weeks. Multiple areas of the body are commonly treated on the same day.
What can I expect after treatments?
There is absolutely no downtime after the procedure. You will look completely normal (if not even a little bit better) immediately following the procedure and can get right into a bathing suit if desired. There are no restrictions after the procedure- you can go right back to work or even to the gym. We suggest maintaining a healthy diet high in lean protein and exercising at least 3-5 times a week to boost and maintain results as long as possible. Best results are seen at 1-3 months following your last treatment. Some patients choose to maintain or even improve upon their results with maintenance treatments that can be started 3 months following your initial Emsculpt treatment series. Maintenance packages are offered in our office, and offer treatments every 1-2 months on the same area.
What treatments can I combine with Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a great device for strengthening the core. Many of both our female and male patients choose to combine there abdominal core strengthening with a similar device called Emsella that uses the HIFEM technology to strengthen the core muscles of the pelvic floor as well. The combined treatment is called The Core to Floor Treatment Package. For patients that have thicker layers of fat they are hoping to target, we also often combine Emsculpt with either devices such as TruSculpt ID or injections such as Kybella that permanently destroy pockets of fat. These areas could then be treated with Emsculpt to burn through further fat while also strengthening muscle. We also commonly combine Emsculpt with a different device called Emtone that can tighten and smooth skin and improve cellulite in areas we have treated with Emsculpt to lead to a more complete improvement in appearance in the areas treated.
