Our philosophy has always been conservative and patient-oriented. Because of this, we don’t adopt every new procedure or device to our practice. Drs. Cheryl and Barry Citron made the decision to offer EMSCULPTÂ® based upon the uniqueness of its technology, solid scientific evidence supporting its efficacy, excellent peer-reviewed studies, and high patient satisfaction.
What Is EMSCULPTÂ®?
EMSCULPTÂ® is a unique new device that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic waves to rapidly build and shape abdominal muscles over a short period of time. With just four treatment sessions that can be performed twice a week, over a period of just two weeks, the abdominal muscles, buttocks, thighs and arms can be developed.

Who Can Receive EMSCULPTÂ®?
EMSCULPTÂ® is appropriate for both men and women who desire an improvement in muscle mass and tone. Pregnant women should not undergo treatment with EMSCULPT. People with implanted devices such as pacemakers, or defibrillators are not candidates.
What Areas Can Be Treated with EMSCULPTÂ®?
EMSCULPTÂ® was initially used to shape the abdominal muscles, creating a slim, toned and sculpted abdomen faster and more effectively than standard exercise routines. EMSCULPTÂ® also shapes and tones the buttocks, thighs, and arms by building muscle and reducing fat.
How Does EMSCULPTÂ® Work?
EMSCULPTÂ® uses HIFEM technology, High-Frequency Electromagnetic Waves, to stimulate muscle contraction. During a typical treatment session, EMSCULPTÂ® causes the muscles to contract up to 20,000 times. This intense exercise is structured to simulate interval training within each session to maximize results. You will feel your muscles working intensely in multiple patterns of contraction during the treatment.
The treatments are spaced apart for 3 days to allow for optimal muscle recovery, in a way similar to that which bodybuilders structure their workouts to avoid overtraining a particular muscle group.
Proven EMSCULPTÂ® Results
- Abdominal Study: In a study of 22 patients treated with 4 sessions within 2 weeks, decreased waist size, muscle toning and fat reduction were documented with a patient satisfaction rate of 96%.
- Buttock Study: In a multicenter study, 75 patients received 4 treatments. 85% of patients reported a significant improvement in appearance. 80% felt their buttock was more lifted and toned immediately after their 4th treatment with improvement of buttock laxity and tightness, shape, tone and fullness.
Will EMSCULPTÂ® Help Me Lose Weight?
EMSCULPTÂ® builds muscle and reduces the amount of fat in the treatment area. Your body weight might not change, and could actually increase due to the increase in muscle mass as muscle is heavier than fat. When you become stronger, improve your shape, core strength, and decrease the amount of body fat, you are more likely to adapt a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise.
How Long Do the Results of EMSCULPTÂ® Last?
Muscle built using EMSCULPTÂ® can be maintained with regular exercise just as muscle acquired by traditional bodybuilding and weight training. Maintenance with periodic treatments after the initial treatment sessions can be an option.
EMSCULPTÂ® Before and After
Is EMSCULPTÂ® Painful?
During the treatment session, intense muscle contractions may be uncomfortable for some. The discomfort is similar to that which one has during an intense workout. The rapid contractions are interrupted by slower contractions in phases. After the first few minutes, the initial discomfort subsides. Pain medications, anesthesia and/or sedation are totally unnecessary.
