As Seen On
For optimal results, we recommend 4 treatments within the first two weeks. Treatments as little as twice a year after that will help maintain your results.
With Emsculpt, there is no downtime! Treatments are only 30 minutes long so you can be back to your regular activities immediately after. Some of our clients have even gone to the gym in the same day!
Both procedures are quick (about 30 minutes) with no downtime, but use different technologies to achieve slightly different outcomes. CoolSculpting is primarily a fat reduction treatment that is great for debulking. It uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, causing them to undergo a natural cell death and then be eliminated by the body. The fat loss from this procedure is permanent. Emsculpt, on the other hand, is more of a toning and muscle building procedure that uses electromagnetic waves to induce supramaximal muscle contractions. Emsculpt will primarily help you build muscle, with some fat loss as a secondary effect. On the buttocks, Emsculpt will help to smooth, lift and tone your backside.
The best way to describe the Emsculpt procedure is like a very intense workout while laying still, but it’s something that most people find perfectly tolerable. During treatment, patients may enjoy watching TV, reading, or listening to music while reclining.
