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.

Emsculpt is available at our clinics in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire and London Marylebone which is just a short 5 minute walk from our London Harley Street clinic. Join us for a free 15 minute trial treatment experienceBook your free consultation to find out more today.

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

What areas can Emsculpt treatment target?

  • 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!

What to Expect

  • Consultation
  • The Procedure
  • Aftercare

The Consultation

Patients will attend their Emsculpt clinic for a free consultation with one of our Emsculpt experts. They will assess your suitability for treatment and go through information about the treatment to help you feel more informed in making your decision to go ahead with treatment.

Emsculpt Treatment

When you attend clinic for your Emsculpt treatment you will have a flat treatment paddle applied to the area being treated whilst you get comfy on the treatment bed. The practitioner will start the treatment at a low intensity and will work to increase this to 100 as you continue your treatment and treatment sessions. The treatment can feel intense as the paddle will hold your stomach rigid for seconds at a time with periods of relaxed tapping in-between. After 30 minutes, your treatment will be complete, and you will be able to leave and continue with your everyday activities.

After Emsculpt Treatment

Emsculpt treatment does not require any downtime. Patients may feel sore and sensitive in the treatment area, but this will be similar to the feeling after an intense workout.

The results following Emsculpt treatment are best seen following a course of 4 treatments. Many patients are able to feel the results of treatment after their first treatment. The first signs of treatment will be noticing more strength when it comes to exercise, being able to hold a plank or squat for longer than they are used to for example. Visible results from treatment are best seen 2-4 weeks following the last treatment session and these will continue to improve in the weeks following.

FAQs

  • Who is suitable for Emsculpt treatment?

    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.

    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.

  • Can Emsculpt help with diastasis recti?

    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.

  • How much does Emsculpt cost?

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

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

The size and shape are absolutely fabulous.The clinic was amazing. The nursing staff in the hospital were superb.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
