How Does Emsculpt Work and When Will I See Results?

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


EMSCULPT® is one of the newest revolutionary body sculpting treatments. It is the first noninvasive procedure that simultaneously builds muscle and burns fat to create a more sculpted appearance. It is a new cosmetic treatment that is a game-changer for body contouring, allowing healthy men and women the option to forgo a surgical procedure and avoid a lengthy healing process. Does it sound too be good to be true? EMSCULPT treatments work, and patients are getting results that prove it.

Dual board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi provides several body contouring options, including EMSCULPT, to his patients in the Louisville, KY area. Noninvasive body contouring treatments like EMSCULPT are a popular option for adult men and women to look more toned and fit in certain areas. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery is excited to offer EMSCULPT as one of the several aesthetic procedures they provide. Here is a look at how the treatment works and the results patients can expect.

How does EMSCULPT work?

By using high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, the patented EMSCULPT device induces contractions at a rapid pace, not allowing the targeted muscle to relax. These supramaximal contractions trigger a response that forces the targeted area to respond by burning fat and building more muscle. Just like with regular exercise, the body naturally responds by rebuilding tissue resulting in muscles that are firmer and stronger. These powerful contractions create a highly effective metabolic reaction that burns fat and builds more muscle with every EMSCULPT session. Healthy men and women can add this body contouring arsenal to help them look more fit and lean in the stomach, thighs, glutes, or upper arm area.

Is EMSCULPT worth it?

The cosmetic world is always changing, with no shortage of treatments offering to target unwanted fat and give patients body contouring help. EMSCULPT is FDA approved and considered a safe, nonsurgical option for patients wanting to forgo liposuction or a surgical procedure that requires downtime. EMSCULPT is the only body contouring device that can build muscle and burn unwanted fat at the same time. Louisville patients looking to achieve body sculpting results in just 30 minutes compared to months of working out at the gym should check out EMSCULPT and see the results for themselves. It is time to shed those pockets of unwanted fat and look more sculpted and physically fit.

When do I start to see EMSCULPT results?

EMSCULPT is an innovative body sculpting treatment that builds muscle and burns fat via electromagnetic pulses. The contractions encourage the body to grow new muscle fibers and protein strains, which simultaneously decreases unwanted fat cells. The electromagnetic technology of EMSCULPT causes the underlying muscles to tighten and rebuild, leaving men and women with a smoother, more fit appearance. Patients typically start to see their new EMSCULPT results about two weeks after their last treatment. It is generally recommended that patients get at least 2 – 3 treatments a week for about 2 – 4 weeks for optimal results. Follow-up sessions are typically recommended every 4 – 6 months to maintain that toned, lifted appearance in targeted areas.

How long do EMSCULPT results last?

EMSCULPT is a permanent solution to destroy targeted fat cells. The right candidates are near or at their target weight, needing help with stubborn pockets of fat that have become unresponsive to diet and exercise. The muscle mass created by EMSCULPT treatments will likely last six months or longer if patients continue strength and conditioning exercises to build muscle. Patients can enjoy their slimmer, more fit profile with EMSCULPT for a lifetime if they maintain their ideal weight. Additional weight gain will cause remaining fat cells to grow and expand, possibly altering a patient's results.

Dr. Mizuguchi and his dedicated, experienced team believe EMSCULPT is worth it and have the patient results to prove it. With EMSCULPT, you can finally achieve real sculpted results without spending hours at the gym. It is the ideal cosmetic procedure for individuals who are physically fit, have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or less, and are at their target body weight. The innovative device can help contour the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and now even the upper arms or back with a qualified experienced expert like Dr. Mizuguchi.
