MSculpt (Emsculpt) | Build, Strengthen, Tone Muscles
MSculpt, or Emsculpt, is an advanced body contouring treatment that induces muscle contractions that build, tone, and sculpt a rock-hard body. MSculpt is FDA cleared to shape abdominal muscles, tone, lift the buttocks for a non-surgical butt-lift, and carve lean, sculpted thighs. This treatment is also FDA cleared to target the upper arms muscles to tone chiseled biceps and triceps. Learn more about this body contouring treatment here.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
Popular abdominal exercises like crunches and sit-ups strengthen and define the core by continuously contracting and relaxing the stomach muscles. Following this same principle, Emsculpt induces supramaximal contractions by penetrating muscle tissues with Highly Focused Electromagnetic energy. Supramaximal contractions are more intense than the manual contractions people can achieve during gym exercise. Not only are the contractions more intense, but they can also tone and tighten the muscles more rapidly than anything humanly possible. One treatment can induce 20,000 contractions in just 30 minutes. The results are the equivalent of a person performing 20,000 sit-ups, lunges, or squats. This fact is why Emsculpt is known as the “superman workout.”
MSculpt vs. CoolSculpting
While Emsculpt is known mainly for its ability to strengthen, build, and tone major muscle groups, it can also reduce fat cells. Supramaximal contractions require significant energy. To power these intense muscle contractions, the body metabolizes fat cells in the treatment area to use as fuel. This combination of fat reduction and muscle building helps MSculpt deliver dynamic body shaping results.
MSculpt and Fat Reduction
Emsculpt utilizes electromagnetic currents known as High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. Attaching a proprietary applicator above the target muscle group, the Emsculpt treatment, sends the HIFEM energy down into the tissues.
The electromagnetic energy causes the muscles to contract. These aren’t normal contractions that you induce at the gym performing various core workouts. Known as Supramaximal contracts, meaning ‘beyond what is possible,’ these contractions place intense tension on the muscle. To respond to this stress, the body creates bigger, more powerful muscle tissue. The result is stronger, more sculpted abs.

Does MSculpt Hurt?*
The Emsculpt treatment is entirely painless. Most patients report feeling muscle contractions during the treatment. This feeling can be described as a weird sensation, but not uncomfortable. As with any body shaping treatment, individual experiences will vary.*
MSculpt Side Effects*
Emsculpt is known for having a notably high safety profile. There are no known side effects of this procedure. Some patients report muscle soreness after the treatment within 24 to 48 hours afterward. The soreness is felt in the treatment area and is like the feeling you get after an intense workout in the gym. This sore feeling is an excellent indication that the Emsculpt treatment is working.
