EmSculpt Treatments in NYC

The Muscle Builder and Butt Lifter

Have you heard about EmSculpt? This groundbreaking procedure, performed by Dr. Howard Sobel in Manhattan uses high-intensity, precision-focused electromagnetic energy to trigger supramaximal, or involuntary, muscle contractions. The result over 4 treatments is 19% fat loss,16% growth in muscle fibers, and smoother, more defined abs and butts. EmSculpt body contouring has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for the improvement, strengthening, and firming of the abdomen and the buttocks. It’s safe, fast, non-invasive, relatively painless, and requires no downtime. Sobel Skin is a top dermatologist in NYC and we are pleased to offer EmSculpt treatments to patients who are living a healthy lifestyle and want to see improved tone and shape in their bodies.

What is EmSculpt?

EmSculpt is the first FDA-Approved treatment shown to actually build muscle and also burn fat without you having to break a sweat. In addition, the EmSculpt creates the world’s first non-invasive butt lift procedure. This revolutionary treatment stimulates muscle contractions, to grow bigger muscles, and burn fat at the same time.

How Does EmSculpt Work?

The non-invasive HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. These contractions are deeper and more intense than what we perform on our own at the gym. When exposed to supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme condition. This is the key to EmSculpt’s amazing ability to grow bigger, stronger muscles without the workout.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

What to expect during EmSculpt treatment

Athletic woman flexing absOn the day of the treatment, there will be photos taken on the treatment area and your initial weight. You will be asked to lay down on the treatment table where soft Velcro belts will be placed around the treatment area. The applicator will be placed on the treatment area and secured with the soft Velcro belt.

There are no gels or liquids used. The device can be placed over clothing and/or directly in contact with the skin. Once the treatment is started, over the first 5-10 minutes the intensity of the treatment is gradually increased to 100% and will remain the same for the remainder of the treatment. During the treatment, there will be a change in phases from more intense to less intense to allow for a comfortable treatment which imitates normal workout cycle.

Is the procedure painful?

EmSculpt sessions should never be painful. EmSculpt is an exception to the saying “No pain, no gain.” Most patients compare the EmSculpt session to an intense workout. The device allows your provider to control the power intensity of the treatment based on your feedback during the session. The goal is to get you to the highest level of intensity that is not painful. Patients often listen to music, zen out, or even talk throughout the 30 minute session.

How long does the EmSculpt treatment take?

Your EmSculpt treatment plan will be dependent on your specific goals and we will take the time to make a plan that works for you. Often, there is a minimum of four 30-minute treatment sessions that are spread out over a couple weeks (2 sessions one week, 2 sessions the following week).

How fast will I see results of EmSculpt?

You begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session. Your results will continue to improve over the year following your treatments and can be maintained by your gym routine. Maintenance treatments can be done and recommended 6 months following last session.

Are EmSculpt results permanent?

EmSculpt results are long lasting, permanency depends on the patient. Just like going to the gym and working out, the results that you see must be maintained. Patients who have EmSculpt are loving their treatment results for up to a year before having “maintenance” treatment. If a patient maintains their body weight through healthy diet and exercise then the results should last longer than someone who does not lead a healthy lifestyle.

Are there other benefits to the EmSculpt besides visually defining my muscles?

Patients should not only see great improvement in their muscle tone, but many find that they are able to work out much better, stronger, and longer while feeling more powerful. Think of EmSculpt as an added benefit to your usual workout. Your muscles will respond even better than before because of the increased size and number of muscle fibers. Maintenance EmSculpt treatments are encouraged to continue building muscle, but even without any further treatments beyond the first 4 in the series, muscle continues to build over 12 months.

Am I able to get EmSculpt after liposuction?

Yes, EmSculpt is an excellent treatment after liposuction. In most cases, you can start EmSculpt sessions as soon as one month following your liposuction. The liposuction removes the fat, and the EmSculpt will then tone and define those muscles that were hiding behind the now removed fat.

I have “diastasis recti” after having a baby. Does EmSculpt help correct this?

Yes, Emsculpt does improve diastasis recti. Diastasis recti is the partial or complete separation of the abdominal muscles, commonly experienced by women after pregnancy. About two-thirds of pregnant women experience this and EmSculpt is a quick, painless, non-invasive way to correct this occurrence after pregnancy.
