Exercise and proper diet are the two essential factors that affect the body’s shape. Poor eating and sleeping habits, along with a lack of proper physical activity, have pushed us towards obesity and an unsculpted body. But even after we decide to take off the extra pounds with proper diet and exercise, some areas of localized fat are too stubborn to let go of their fat accumulation. Emsculpt is one of the rapidly increasing body sculpting procedures that are non-invasive and non-surgical solutions to unwanted fat deposits. Our hormones determine the fat-storing places in our bodies, so losing fat, no matter how hard we try, is nothing less than a battle with yourself. These fat-storing areas often include the abdomen, flanks, back, buttocks, upper arms, thighs, calves, etc.
What is Emsculpt? How Does it Target Unwanted Fat?
Emsculpt is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that has risen in popularity recently because of its effectiveness in providing two crucial benefits, i.e., fat reduction and increase in muscle mass. An FDA-approved fat-reducing, muscle-building treatment, the procedure aims to help people who want to get rid of areas of stubborn fat while gaining muscle. Producing an effect similar to an intense physical workout, this treatment improves the body structure and eliminates excess and unnecessary body fat. People often confuse weight and fat loss by thinking these are the same thing. However, this is not the case, and both differ. Even if a person successfully loses weight, it is not necessary that he gets rid of fat pockets that sit stubbornly in his body areas.
Thus, some body parts can accumulate and sustain the fat, making it harder to lose it. Such body parts require more attention, exercise or diet alone is not enough, and traditional body sculpting treatments are a completely different struggle. Thus, non-surgical procedures for body contouring are rising in rank as effective alternatives to these body procedures. Even when you burn fat, you do not get rid of any fat cells. Your body consumes the energy stored in the fat cells for fuel, but the fat cells are still there. Thus, the fat levels can fluctuate upon exercising or dieting. But your fat is still there, haunting you, and requires a permanent solution.
How Much Fat Can I Lose With This Treatment?
Emsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to target the fat cells present under the skin surface and induce repetitive contractions. These contractions stimulate vibrations at a rapid rate at the deeper level of fat storage and cause a fat-burning response that also increases the muscle mass of the treated area. This procedure is safe, effective, and versatile in functionality and can reduce fat pockets from almost every body part. Although this body contouring procedure provides effective results, it is not a weight loss solution for clinically obese people or individuals above their healthy BMI ranges.
But for people who maintain a healthy Body Mass Index and only want to address unwanted fat pockets to sculpt their bodies, Emsculpt is no less than a miracle. You can expect to lose approximately 19% of fat cells in the targeted area. The procedure spans multiple sessions customized according to the patients’ needs and suitable treatment.

How Much Weight Can I Lose With This Treatment?
Again, this isn’t a weight-loss treatment in the sense that it is not designed to reduce the overall weight of an individual. Instead, it works to increase muscle mass and eliminate pinchable soft fat, and ruins your physical attractiveness. However, since fat cells are flushed out of the body, after they break apart and spill their contents, weight loss to some extent will occur. We can’t give you a rough estimate of how much weight you will lose with this treatment without assessing your body fat distribution.
How Soon Will I See the Results of Treatment?
You will start seeing your treatment results two to six weeks after your first session. However, how long it takes you to start seeing your results depends on the efficiency of your lymphatic system and its power to absorb, process, and discard the fat cell remnants. You can expect to see the final results of your treatment six months after your final session.
Since your muscles are put through such an intense workout during each session, you may get sore in the treatment area. But don’t worry, these effects are short-lived as there will not be any severe side effects. People at their goal weight usually only need one or two sessions to achieve their ideal results; people farther from their goal weight may need up to four, respectively.
