Emsculpt – Build Muscle

Emsculpt – Build Muscle

Emsculpt is a non surgical body shaping and fat reduction treatment that not only reduces fat but helps to tone and strengthen the muscles in the areas treated.

Unlike fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting and Liposuction which target the fat directly. Emsculpt’s fat reduction results are instead a knock on effect from what the device is doing to your muscles.

Emsculpt treatment is able to contract the muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, producing improved muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. The results from Emsculpt are backed by 7 clinical studies which show fat loss as well as defined and sculpted muscles to the abdomen and buttocks following a series of 4 treatments.

The following results were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:

  • 19% reduction of fat
    4cm /1.5-inch loss in waistline circumference
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation / diastasis recti
  • 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
  • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction

“My gym instructor told me that to build muscle I would have to work out for hours every day, but with Emsculpt I’m fitter, stronger and my Pilates class was a breeze.” – Vicki

Emsculpt treatment targets the;

  • Stomach/Abdomen
  • Buttocks (Butt Lift)
  • Upper Arms/Biceps/Triceps
  • Thighs
  • Calves

The Emsculpt uses High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic Technology (HIFEM) which induces powerful supramaximal muscle contractions in the body that are not achievable through voluntary contractions that occur during exercise. These supramaximal contractions force the muscle tissue to adapt by remodelling the inner structure which results in muscle building and burning fat.

The non-invasive HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic) technology is said to induce 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions in 30 minutes.

One 30-minute procedure is equivalent to 20,000 sit-ups and squats!

Really good experience. I had VASER Lipo on the chest, flanks and abdomen. Dr Mike listened to everything that I wanted and so far so good. I’m only 2 weeks post op so there’s still some swelling around the flanks and all over in general but it’s looking amazing in comparison to what it was....

‘Top Up’ Procedure
This was a ‘top up’ procedure following the original lipo on the abdomen and a knee (!) in September 2019. Really pleased with the results especially as Mike finally got a fatty lump out of my knee which has been there for many many years and on my 3rd attempt to try and remove it....

Your Questions Answered

Emsculpt treatment contracts 100% of the muscle for 100% of the time you are having treatment. When you are at the gym, you usually contract around 35-40% or a professional athlete may contract up to 55% so it results in a much more focused and stronger work out that would be physically impossible to replicate in the gym yourself.

Emsculpt treatment is best suited to patients who are looking to reduce fat and build muscle. It is best performed on patients who have stubborn areas of pinchable fat.

Emsculpt is not suitable for anyone with medical implants such as pacemakers, cardiac defibrillators or women who are breastfeeding or are or may be pregnant.

To find out whether you are suitable for Emsculpt treatment visit us for a consultation with one of our Emsculpt trained Clinical Practitioners.

The Emsculpt procedure is not designed to be painful however due to the treatment targeting the muscles it can feel like an intense workout. Patients are laid down during the procedure to help them feel relaxed.

When you visit the gym you will be working different muscle groups which can rip and then heal back together which is often what causes muscle soreness or delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in the days following your workout. Soreness can also be a result of a build-up of lactic acid.

Following Emsculpt treatment you may feel slightly tender in the area that was treated but not like muscle soreness you experience following a workout at the gym.

The treatment time required for Emsculpt with vary depending on the treatment area. In most cases the treatment will take 20 – 30 minutes. The best results are seen after 4 treatment sessions spaced 2-3 days apart so patients should allow 120 minutes of their time for treatment.

There is no downtime associated with Emsculpt. Some patients may feel sensitive in the areas treated following the procedure similar to how they would feel after an intensive gym session but not as intense.

You will be able to return to work immediately following the procedure.

The results from Emsculpt will vary on alot of factors such as age, physical condition and BMI.

Patients will be able to feel the results from Emsculpt after their first treatment. Visible results are best seen 2-4 weeks following the last treatment session and these will continue to improve in the weeks following.

The results from Emsculpt can be maintained in patients who continue to follow a healthy lifestyle routine. The fat cells that have been destroyed by the increase in fat metabolism will be permanent unless there is significant weight gain which can cause the remaining cells to grow again.

We recommend one Emsculpt treatment every 3-6 months to help maintain the results in muscle tone.

Emsculpt can provide more benefits to patients aside from fat reduction and muscle building.

Patients who have had their abdomen treated will find their posture will improve and any lower back pain is reduced.

Regular gym goers may find they are able to hold a plank for longer, lift more or even squat heavier and just feel their core strength is improved.

Patients who are regular runners or swimmers may find they can perform faster due to a strengthened core too.

Emscupt can also help to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) or muscle fatigue. 

Emsculpt is really effective at improving muscle tone and burning fat but it can also be used to help improve diastasis recti. Diastasis recti or rectus abdominis diastasis is common in women post-pregnancy. The pressure on the stomach from pregnancy can cause the abdominal muscles to stretch and separate causing a bulge in the stomach. In most cases the muscles are eventually able to shrink back to their original shape but for some this does not happen.

Previously surgery was the only way to rectify this issue which can cause a significant amount of unwanted downtime. Emsculpt offers the first non-surgical means of improving this condition boasting a 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation.

To find out more about Emsculpt treatment for diastasis recti, please contact us to book a consultation with one of our expert Emsculpt practitioners.

The cost of Emsculpt treatment starts from £1,800 for a course for 4.
