Emsculpt is a non-surgical body contouring procedure that builds muscle and sculpts the body by inducing powerful muscle contractions, essentially doing your workout for you. 

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is an FDA cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts, tones, and brings out muscle definition of the abdomen or buttocks. With a focus on muscle instead of fat, Emsculpt utilizes electromagnetic energy to cause supramaximal contractions that cannot be achieved by a human alone. In fact, Emsculpt can perform 20,000 muscle contractions in half an hour, resulting in a much more contoured appearance. 

Key benefits

Emsculpt builds muscle fibers for more defined abs and a buttocks.
The key benefits of the procedure include:

  • A “6 pack” look
  • Sculpted arms
  • Flatter tummy
  • Toned legs
  • No downtime

How Emsculpt works

Emsculpt harnesses focused electromagnetic energy to target fat loss to the area of the muscle. The procedure causes contractions which forces the muscle tissue to adapt to such intensity, which releases chemicals that causes the tissue to remodel its inner structure. This manifests when fat cells are signaled to break down their components.

When this happens, those components are released as fatty acids which overtake the fat cells and kill them. They are then absorbed by the body and excreted out. The result of this process is newly-built muscle and a sculpted appearance. When it comes to the buttocks, however, Emsculpt does not harm any fat, as this fat is needed for shape. Instead, the gluteal muscles are built without damaging fat cells.

Are you a candidate?

Good candidates for Emsculpt are men and women who would like a more sculpted appearance but are not seeing results from working out, or who may not have time to visit the gym. Emsculpt can be a great option for women who want to restore their stomach area after having a baby, or for individuals who are seeking more tone and definition. This treatment is also ideal for people who are 5-10lbs shy of their weight goal that is exercising regularly and eating healthy. Emsculpt is the cherry on top for toning all areas of the body and is FDA cleared for: abs, glutes, thighs, biceps, triceps, and calves.

The ideal candidate:

  • Wants more muscle definition
  • Does not have excess weight over their muscles
  • Is of average BMI
  • Does not have metal or electronics inside their body


Emsculpt treatments take half an hour. When you arrive, the applicator paddles will be applied to the area to be worked on, whether it’s your abdomen or buttocks. You will lie down and be made comfortable. During the session, you will feel the device contracting your muscles, and the intensity of the electromagnetic field will be gradually increased. Many patients describe the feeling as a “gripping” sensation that pulls upward. While often reported to feel a bit strange, patients find any treatment discomfort very tolerable. 

After your Emsculpt appointment, there is no downtime. You can go back to your regular day.

The Results 

Immediately after your Emsculpt procedure, you will feel a change in the abdomen (if that is the area you had treated). Some patients notice results a couple of days after Emsculpt, but here at Dr. Fenner's office, we recommend starting with a series of 6 and continuing treatments for maintenance for optimal results. Final results are noticed in 1-3 months.
