Emsculpt is a FDA approved, non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to cause forced muscle contractions.  The muscle contractions cause release of free fatty acids, imploding fat (adipose) cells.
In addition to toning the core, the device can be used for non-surgical buttock augmentation, breast lift and can treat diastasis recti (abdominal separation).
Dr. Suneel Chilukuri, a dermatologist in Houston Texas described Emsculpt, "This is revolutionary, simultaneously treating muscle & fat, enhancing the results of what we rationally called sculpting."
Dr. Carolyn Jacob, a dermatologist in Chicago describes  the technology, "No other device uses high intensity focused electro magnetic energy to create a positive change in the shape of the body.  It is painless, effortless to perform, and can be added onto other treatments that patients are already coming in to have (such as cryolipolysis  RF tightening).  Plus, no other technology has yet to show changes in muscle tone, a KEY part of our wellbeing and physique.  Imagine if we can improve posture, strength and reduce diastasis for sufferers, for the long term improvement of our health. "
"Completely unique technology for body shaping. Not only reduces fat but shapes underlying muscles as well," explains Dr. Robert Weiss, a dermatologist in Baltimore who continues, " We now have a device which addresses lax muscle under fat.  Works really well in conjunction with all the other non-invasive and possibly invasive ways of fat reduction.  For many middle aged patients fat reduction with cooling or heating gave less than optimal results because of bulging weak muscles under the fat. But with the addition of this device and technology we can now get more satisfying or hi-definition results with much greater body contouring than any device which addresses only fat. "
Dr. Brian Kinney, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, "This device delivers 20,000  forced muscle contractions in a 30 minute session!"  
"EMSCULPT is like comparing an iPhone to a flip phone in terms of what a doctor can accomplish compared to existing technologies. Can be combined with many other technologies for non-invasive body contouring." stated Dr. Kinney.
"Patients showed an improvement with Diastasis Recti and experienced circumferential reduction. Great addition to a non-surgical Mommy Makeover", explained Chilukuri.
"Consistency in results makes me excited to offer this to all my patients." Dr. David E. Kent,  a dermatologist in Macon Georgia.
Dr. Mariano Busso,  dermatologist who practices in Coconut Grove Florida has used the device extensively for non-surgical butt lifts.  According to Dr. Busso, "Emsculpt recontours muscles to accomplish firming, lifting, & increasing the profile of the medial aspect. of the buttock."
"Every single patient felt their butts lifted up", exclaimed Chilukuri.
Treatment time is approximately 30 minutes, 2 times per week for 2 weeks.  There is no pain or downtime, although some patients feel some light muscle soreness the next day like they had worked out at the gym.
