Building muscle and maintaining your figure is difficult, even with diet and exercise. It can be frustrating to not see results even when you do everything right. There is a new non-invasive FDA-approved treatment that uses electromagnetic energy waves called Emsculpt that can help. 

Emsculpt is a body contouring system that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic field (HIFEM) energy to contract muscles. Unlike many surgical procedures, Emsculpt actually tones muscles and is the equivalent of thousands of sit ups in a single session.

What is Emsculpt? 

Emsculpt is an aesthetic device designed to build muscle and sculpt your body during simple, non-invasive treatments. It is a better alternative to liposuction and other surgical procedures that require down-time and recovery. 

Emsculpt therapy uses HIFEM energy to firm and tone muscles in these FDA-approved areas: 

  • Arms 
  • Abs
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

How does body sculpting with Emsculpt work? 

During your Emsculpt therapy sessions, the device will be placed on the desired area. Then the highly-focused electromagnetic energy will contract muscles beyond what you could possibly accomplish on your own. One 30-minute Emsculpt therapy session on your abs is equivalent to 20,000 crunches! 

The muscle contractions caused by Emsculpt will tone and build muscles while also enhancing fat reduction. Just like with regular exercise, Emsculpt causes a natural metabolic reaction in the body that burns fat and builds muscle. Patients in Charleston and Mount Pleasant will be surprised to see the results of Emsculpt treatment after just a 30-minute session.

Is Emsculpt FDA approved? 

Yes! Emsculpt is one of the first aesthetic devices actually approved by the FDA because it works and patients are seeing results. While Emsculpt is not for everyone, healthy adults can use it to shed those pockets of unwanted fat, sculpt the body, and build muscle without rigorous workouts. This treatment requires no recovery time or anesthesia, and can be part of a healthy routine.

How long do Emsculpt results last? 

Emsculpt sessions only last 30-minutes, which means you can easily fit them into your busy schedule. They require no recovery or down time. Some patients will experience soreness in the treatment area, similar to the feeling after an intense workout.  

Patients should begin seeing Emsculpt results in a few weeks after treatment. Fat burning and muscle growth does not happen overnight. However, results from Emsculpt treatments in Charleston can be experienced for months after your treatment sessions. Results may vary from patient to patient.

Where can I schedule Emsculpt treatments in Charleston, SC? 

Emsculpt is designed for healthy adults who have normal BMI and lead healthy lifestyles. The treatment will help them build muscle, burn fat, and sculpt areas of their body they are having trouble with on their own. A consultation with Dr. Todd Joye is necessary to determine if you are a candidate for Emsculpt treatments.
