What Is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is a revolutionary patented body sculpting technology that is designed to build muscle and reduce fat through the use of highly focused electromagnetic energy. This energy is used to target specific areas of the body and causes a rapid series of muscle contractions called supramaxial contractions. The supramaxial contractions initiated by the EMSCULPT-tech far surpass those accumulated within a single session at the gym. EMSCULPT causes around 20,000 contractions in 30 minutes, targeting fat loss to the area of the muscle, which cannot be accomplished even in the most devoted gym rat. Your body responds to these contractions by rebuilding the muscles to become stronger and more toned.
EMSCULPT has been cleared by the FDA for the “improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, development of firmer abdomen, and strengthening, toning, and firming of the buttocks.”
Multiple studies have confirmed that EMSCULPT reduces patient’s waist size through a combination of fat reduction and increased muscle definition of the abdominal wall and provides an additional tool for body contouring with a primary application for lower and medium BMI patients.
Current trends have shown a decline in surgical skin excision, which has largely been replaced with minimally invasive and noninvasive alternatives like EMSCULPT. We couldn’t be happier. EMSCULPT is a safe and effective muscle-building alternative to invasive surgeries.
Please note that EMSCULPT is meant to act as a supplement to an active life and healthy diet. It does not provide a substitute for either of those by itself.

Candidates are not eligible if they demonstrate any of the following conditions:
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
- Cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator, implanted neurostimulator, drug pump, or electronic
- Metal rods, pins, plates, IUD or orthopedic implants/joints
- Pulmonary insufficiency, cardiac disorders, epilepsy, or active malignancy

During your personal consultation, you will have the opportunity to share your aesthetic goals with a highly qualified member of our ABS team. You will discuss why you are interested in EMSCULPT and how this procedure will help you obtain your ideal figure. We will listen carefully and suggest the best techniques and number of treatments that will produce your best results.
We will examine the areas you are concerned about to determine if EMSCULPT is your best option.
Your health and safety are very important to us at the ABS Institute. The clinical team will ask you about your general health, allergies, and past surgeries. This information will help them understand if the EMSCULPT treatment is best for their health.
At your first session, you will have photos of the treatment area taken so that we can track your progress.
The first step is securing the applicator to the treatment area, then the process starts, directing the HIFEM energy to stimulate muscle growth and eliminate fat deposits.
Each treatment takes around thirty to forty minutes, depending on the area.
After your EMSCULPT session, you will feel like you have just finished an intense workout at the gym. Luckily, there is no downtime or recovery. When used appropriately and correctly, these devices have demonstrated excellent clinical efficacy and safety.
Results are noticeable after one’s first EMSCULPT session. Substantial results are usually seen two to four weeks after the final session, continually improving for several weeks. Any muscle mass gained through treatment is not permanent but can last for up to six months or more. Daily scheduled sessions are recommended to maintain results.
For maximum benefit, we recommend two sessions per week spaced two-to-three days apart for two weeks. This should be followed by bi-monthly maintenance.
Studies have demonstrated that EMSCULPT procedures are a beneficial treatment option for patients with high amounts of fat deposits. An additional study further proved that EMSCULPT safely and effectively improves aesthetic appearances non-invasively and that the treatments not only resulted in a significant visual improvement but also increased patient confidence and satisfaction.
Liposuction is a classic method of fat removal that utilizes a hollowed-out needle called a cannula that is connected to a vacuum device. The cannula is inserted into the fatty areas and proceeds to suck out the fat. This procedure is ideal for handling stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away with diet or exercise.
A tummy tuck is a surgery designed to handle problematic flabby sheets of dangling skin through the removal of excess skin and the reinforcement of the abdominal wall. This procedure is perfect for mothers who have recently given birth or people who have lost a significant amount of weight.
Brazillian Butt Lift
A Brazillian butt lift is a surgical procedure that uses a patient’s own fat to add volume, lift, and shape to the buttocks into a more flattering curve overall.

What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is a body sculpting technology that uses highly focused electromagnetic energy to target areas of the body with rapid muscle contractions called supramaxial contractions to initiate accelerated muscle growth and fat reduction.
What are supramaxial contractions?
Supramaxial contractions are high-tension muscle contractions that exceed the highest level of tension the muscles can exert under typical circumstances.
What areas of the body can be treated with EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is cleared to treat the abdomen, butt, arms, calves, and thighs.
How long is an EMSCULPT session?
One EMSCULPT session lasts approximately thirty minutes.
Do I need multiple EMSCULPT sessions?
For the best results, a series of four EMSCULPT sessions spaced two-to-three days apart is recommended.
What does EMSCULPT feel like?
EMSCULPT feels like a particularly intense gym workout with your muscles contracting deeply over 20,000 times in thirty minutes.
Can EMSCULPT be used as a substitute for diet and exercise?
No, EMSCULPT cannot be used as a substitute for diet and exercise. It is meant to supplement those activities.
