Emsculpt is a new technology, revolutionary in its ability to create muscle contraction that you simply can’t on your own. 30 minutes equals 20,000 sit-ups. If you frustrated with that last bit of fat on your abdomen or lack definition of your buttocks, EmSculpt can help.

PSS now offers Emsculpt treatments to our patients who want to non-surgically create the “six-pack” abdomen, or build the buttocks. This device creates beautifully defined muscles and helps with your performance.

Emsculpt is the gold-standard technology that is FDA-cleared to reduce fat and builds muscle at the same time in a single session. When you don’t want to reduce fat in the buttocks area, we can change settings to only build muscle. Get shapelier and stronger in 30 minutes.

What is Emsculpt?

HIFEM stands for High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy and causes your muscles to contract during treatment. The outcome is a toned, sculpted body that is achieved without incisions, injections or scars.

Emsculpt is a revolutionary procedure that implements HIFEM technology to build muscle and improve your body’s contours. Surgical procedures can reduce fat, but cannot create muscle, and require recovery and time off work. This device allows you to create, in 30 minutes, what you might be able to create in hours and hours at the gym.

Emsculpt is an FDA-cleared technique that will work out your muscles without the need to spend hour after hour at the gym. Following the procedure, your abdominal muscles or buttocks may be sore, but the device has a setting that helps remove the lactic acid build up so most experience very little soreness.

Efficiency is something we all long for in our busy lives. Statistically speaking, Emsculpt creates 16% more muscle and reduces fat by 19%. Not bad for 6 sessions of 30 minutes done at lunchtime.

Build and Sculpt Muscle While Reducing Fat

Emsculpt is a procedure to help healthy men and women lose stubborn fat and build muscle. This stubborn fat is called subcutaneous fat and it is found just under the skin. This fat can be especially difficult to remove because the body stores it as an emergency source of energy. Emsculpt will help burn off this extra fat and build your muscles. This treatment is revolutionary because of this dualistic approach to sculpting the body.

Many struggle to strengthen these areas on their own, and often have trouble maintaining the regimen to keep those areas strong. We will soon be able to offer treatment for the biceps and triceps, to tone and shape the arms.

Tried and tested, Emsculpt has been proven safe and effective. For your body contouring needs, Emsculpt will help deliver great results without downtime, and help with your fitness goals. Strengthening core and buttocks areas help tremendously in running, cycling, yoga, and more. Relief of back pain has been reported as a lovely side effect, and we know this affects about half the population.

Emsculpt is entirely nonsurgical and can be done in 30 minutes. Not only will this procedure transform the way you appear non-invasively, but it will also provide natural improvements in the contours of your body while making you stronger and more fit.

PSS: Top Emsculpt Provider Near You

During your private meeting, you will meet with one of our board-certified doctors. They will walk you through the Emsculpt process and what your results will look like. Most patients are recommended to undergo four treatments to achieve their best outcome. These treatments are spaced out by a couple of days.

A treatment package of six sessions is prescribed to achieve the optimal result. Maintenance packages are recommended to retain the strength and shape you’ve created. We can easily create a monthly payment plan, and this makes it effortless for you to get in, get treated, and schedule your quarterly maintenance treatments.

The doctor assisting you will ask about your medical history and current lifestyle. Emsculpt is ideal for active individuals. Once Emsculpt has been deemed a good option for you, your treatment will be created. Emsculpt cannot be used on individuals with metal implants.

At PSS we want our patients to be educated and informed about the many aspects of their procedures. We encourage you to write down your questions and bring them to your consultation.

Here are some questions to get you thinking about the treatment:

  • When will I see my results?
  • What is needed from me to ensure my best outcome?
  • Do you have before and after photos of previous Emsculpt treatments?
  • What will the treatment feel like?
  • How many treatments do you suggest for me?

These questions should get you thinking about the Emsculpt treatment and what you wish to achieve with the treatment. Before you leave, you and your doctor will plan out your future appointments and they will inform you how to best prepare for the treatment.

If you have any more questions that are not addressed in your consultation, please give our office a call so we can assist you!

Emsculpt Treatment

During a procedure, the EMSCULPT applicator will be placed on the area to be treated. The device can treat abdominal muscles, buttocks, arms, thighs and calves. The applicator will be secured and, once you are comfortable, will emit electromagnetic waves. These pulses of energy will contract your muscles at high speeds, causing fat to be broken down and muscle to build quickly.

The treatment will take about thirty minutes for each areatreated. The patient sits or lies prone on a comfortable, adjustable treatment table. Patients can read or simply relax during the session, then return to their regular schedule directly afterwards.

Most patients require six treatments to achieve the sculpted, toned outcome they desire. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and strengthening and toning the body with Emsculpt really encourages that lifestyle.

The increased muscle mass and tone will last as long as it is worked, but like all muscle, “Use it or Lose it” is a true axiom. We recommend quarterly treatments to help maintain the muscle and fat loss as you continue with your healthy lifestyle and workouts.
