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
Emsculpt treatment is suitable for the stomach, upper arms, thighs and buttocks.
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!

Patients will attend their Emsculpt clinic for a 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.
What happens during an 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.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From 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.
What are the results after Emsculpt treatment?
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.
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.
Does the Emsculpt procedure hurt?
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.
How long does Emsculpt treatment take?
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.
What is the downtime following Emsculpt?
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.
When will I see the results from Emsculpt treatment?
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.
Are the results from Emsculpt permanent?
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.
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 £2,500 for a course for 4.
