EmSculpt fat reduction non-surgically sculpts and contours your body
No matter what your day-to-day life consists of, you likely don’t have time every day to work out for hours at the gym and eat a squeaky-clean diet for every meal of the day, which can result in unwanted pounds and inches on your body. Whether you are a working professional, a stay-at-home parent, or a student, you may benefit from the boost that EmSculpt gives your muscles in hard-to-sculpt areas such as your abdomen and buttocks. This fat reduction treatment is offered at Image Dermatology, P.C. in Montclair, NJ so you can feel confident knowing you look your best!
EmSculpt: what it is and how it works
EmSculpt is a non-invasive procedure that contours and sculpts your body in two ways:
- It builds muscle tone by causing your muscles to contract thousands of times per minute
- It reduces fat in stubborn areas
In fact, one treatment has a similar effect on your body as doing 20,000 sit-ups for the abdomen or 20,000 squats for lifting the buttocks! Even better, the great results that EmSculpt delivers happen without needles, surgery, or other invasive procedures.
EmSculpt uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to stimulate your muscles in the treatment area, simultaneously slimming the area and building muscle tone. Because of this dual effect, many patients choose to use EmSculpt even if they don’t have fat to lose because it can help boost areas where they are struggling to achieve more muscle definition. The energy delivered to your muscles forces them to adapt to the extreme contractions, which results in a remodeling of your muscular structure that has terrific results for your body shape.
What areas of the body can EmSculpt be used on?
EmSculpt has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for:
- Improving abdominal tone
- Developing a firmer abdomen
- Strengthening the abdominal muscles
- Strengthening, toning, lifting, and firming the buttocks
- Tightens the area above the knee
It can also be used on the anterior thighs, and we are very excited about new arm pieces that are coming out by the fourth quarter of 2019 to sculpt and tone the arms.

EmSculpt builds 16% muscle and destroys 19% fat. Previously, surgical options such as a Brazilian butt lift or tummy tuck were the only ways to get these great results, but those options can have long recovery periods and potential negative side effects. If you are not getting the sleek, toned results you want from altering your diet and exercise routine, but you don’t want to go under the knife, then EmSculpt may be a great choice for you.
What to expect at an EmSculpt appointment
EmSculpt treatments are easy, quick, and painless! There are no injections or anesthesia. To perform the procedure, the EmSculpt device, which looks like a paddle, is used to deliver high-frequency electromagnetic energy to the treatment area—typically either your abdominal area or your buttocks. Each session usually lasts around 30 minutes, and you are free to relax during this time. After the treatment is over, you might feel some soreness in the treatment area, like what you’d feel after a high-intensity workout. Other than that, you should expect no side effects! Unlike other treatments, there is no bruising, redness, or numbness.
You will notice results approximately two to four weeks after your treatment. This is because your muscles are working during that time period to rebuild and remodel. We typically recommend six or more treatment sessions spaced out over two weeks and then a minimum maintenance schedule of every two to three months thereafter. This regular schedule allows you to achieve the best results, like how you’d need to work out regularly at the gym to tone your body.
Good candidates for EmSculpt
While most people have areas they’d like to fine-tune on their bodies, EmSculpt is not the perfect choice for everyone. It is best suited for people who:
- Already maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and good eating habits
- Have minimal body fat and are close to their ideal weight so that the muscular toning effects are noticeable
- Do not have plans to lose a lot of weight in the future – EmSculpt is the best for people seeking slight improvements instead of dramatic transformations
- Have realistic expectations about the results
