HOW DOES EMSCULPT WORK? THE MUSCLE BUILDING TECHNOLOGY
Upon hearing about a new body contouring treatment that strengthens muscles, people want to know how does Emsculpt work? The revolutionary treatment stimulates muscle contractions to build, tone, and refine muscles. Read on to learn more about the technology and discover if Emsculpt works for you?
HOW DOES EMSCULPT TECHNOLOGY WORK?
Emsculpt works using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. During a treatment, an applicator sends HIFEM energy through the skin into the muscle. This energy stimulates the fibers within the muscle tissue to contract (tighten.) The body adapts to the tension of these contractions in two ways:
- Producing more muscle cells
- Strengthening existing muscle fibers

DOES EMSCULPT WORK ON ANY PART OF THE BODY?
Emsculpt is FDA cleared to treat four major muscle groups. These include:
The abdomen: Emsculpt works the core by stimulating the abdominal muscle. This improves well-being, overall strength, and physical ability.
The arms: Emsculpt works on the arms, building and defining the biceps and triceps.
The legs: Emsculpt is excellent for toning the thighs, strengthening the quads, and sculpting the calves.
The buttocks: Emsculpt works to strengthen and tone the glutes. This provides a subtle lift and firming effect. This makes Emsculpt a non-surgical alternative to a butt-lift.
DOES EMSCULPT WORK ON FAT?
Not only does Emsculpt work on muscles, but the body contouring procedure is also shown to reduce fat. To fuel the powerful muscle contractions induced during an Emsculpt treatment, the body taps into nearby fat reserves for energy. This leads to a reduction in fat at the treatment site.
This is great for treating the abdomen. By reducing belly fat and strengthening the abdominals, you are more likely to achieve the chiseled “washboard look” that is so coveted.
DOES EMSCULPT WORK IN CLINICAL SETTINGS?
To ensure a body contouring treatment does what it says it does, it is essential to see clinical findings that support their statements. So, does Emsculpt work in clinical settings and scientific studies? The answer is a resounding yes. Numerous studies have shown the following:
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- 19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
- Average waist reduction of 4.4 cm
- 95.4% satisfaction with treatment results for buttocks
- 85% reported significant improvement in lift and muscular tone of the buttocks
- 96% satisfaction with treatment results for abdomen
