Tone your body with Emsculpt, the procedure that does more than melt or freeze fat away
Patients often ask if they can freeze away fat with Emsculpt in Montclair NJ. The answer is no, but it does sculpt your body in a different way. Emsculpt is a first of its kind procedure that helps patients firm and tone flabby muscles, giving their bodies shape and tone in a way that mere fat removal cannot accomplish. Dr. Jeanine Downie may use this procedure alone, or as part of a treatment plan including other contouring procedures.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a first of its kind aesthetic device. It does reduce fat, but its focus is on toning, tightening, and strengthening muscles. It works by applying electromagnetic energy to targeted muscles, which triggers supramaximal contractions. This is a very powerful type of muscle contraction, one that you can’t achieve with exercise or other voluntary movement.
When muscles are subjected to strong contractions, they adapt by becoming more firm, taut, and strong. The result is deep remodeling that takes body sculpting to new levels. This revolutionary technology addresses sagging, flabby tissue that fat melting or freezing alone cannot correct.
Emsculpt can be used on many areas of the body, including:
At last, comprehensive body sculpting is possible
Diet and exercise are often billed as the path to a perfectly sculpted body. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really work that way. Weight management, good nutrition, and an active lifestyle are important for good health. They can also improve the overall size and tone of your body. However, when it comes to improving your shape and zeroing in on problem areas, those measures fall short.
Weight loss is distributed across your body; you have no control over where you shed fat. With the introduction of procedures such as Vanquish and Kybella, we can target specific pockets of stubborn fat without surgery. While these fat reduction procedures changed the world of aesthetic medicine, they are still not a complete solution. That is because fat is not the only factor affecting body shape. Exilis, ThermiTight and other tightening procedures solve another piece of the equation, firming up sagging skin. However, none of these address muscle tone.

There are two problems with relying on exercise alone for muscular contouring. First, most of us don’t have time to spend hours on end at the gym. Secondly, the benefit of exercise is limited by the power of the muscle contraction. BTL, a leader in nonsurgical aesthetic technology, devised the first viable solution when they introduced Emsculpt.
This innovative technology induces muscle contractions that are both more powerful and more targeted than voluntary movements. A typical Emsculpt session provides muscle stimulation equivalent to about 20,000 squats or crunches, in just 30 minutes. Dr. Downie was delighted to add this to her already extensive array of aesthetic technologies. She takes pride in delivering highly customized treatments that address each person’s unique needs. With the addition of Emsculpt, she can offer safe, convenient, nonsurgical solutions to all aspects of body shaping.
About the Emsculpt procedure
The process is nonsurgical and non-invasive, making it safe for most patients. During the procedure, you can expect to feel multiple, rapid muscle contractions. Most patients don’t describe it as painful, likening the experience to an intense workout. The difference is, you can’t lie down and relax the rest of your body during a workout, and you can’t do tens of thousands of repetitions in a matter of minutes.
If you are considering Emscupt treatment, you should know:
- Each session lasts about 30 minutes
- Most patients need a series of approximately six to ten sessions, spaced a week apart if possible, to achieve optimal results
- Emsculpt builds your muscles in your stomach by 16 percent and decreases your fat by 19 percent
- There is no downtime, no recovery, and no negative long-term effects have been reported
- You will probably notice some difference immediately, with full results developing within a few weeks of the final session
- Dr. Downie recommends maintenance every 3 months for continued improvement
