What Is EMSCULPT®?
The EMSCULPT® is the first FDA-cleared body contouring and sculpting machine approved for toning your physique and building muscle mass. The EMSCULPT® device consists of a rubber pad that delivers the equivalent of 20,000 sit-ups or squats in 30 minutes by distributing a high-intensity focused electromagnetic field to stimulate the muscle in treatment areas such as the abdomen and buttocks region of the body.
The EMSCULPT® device works by distributing high-intensity electromagnetic pulses through a rubber pad that gives the effect of having done 20,000 sit-ups in 30 minutes. These pulses stimulate the muscle contractions you want to contour in the abdomen and buttocks while eliminating minor stubborn pockets of fat.
EMSCULPT® treatments can help improve the contour and firmness of your abdominal area buttocks, upper arms, and thighs.
The cost of your EMSCULPT® treatment depends entirely on the number of treatment sessions you need, the severity of your concerns, and the size of the area you are having treated. Contact the Skin Matters team today to book a consultation and learn more about pricing.

Most people require a minimum of 4-6 EMSCULPT® treatments to see optimal results, but how often you should receive treatments or maintenance sessions depends on your unique goals and concerns. You will typically receive 4-6 half-hour sessions over the course of 3 weeks, usually every 2-3 days. You may also receive two more sessions 6-8 weeks later.
How long does it take to see results from EMSCULPT® treatments?
On average, it can take up to four weeks to see the first signs of your EMSCULPT® treatments, but you will see dramatic improvements within two to three weeks after your final treatment.
Is EMSCULPT® painful?
The only pain associated with EMSCULPT® is a soreness in the treatment area that will subside after a few days and make you feel like you just had a good workout!
Who is not a good candidate for EMSCULPT®?
You may not be a good candidate for EMSCULPT® if your weight often fluctuates or if you have too many concerns in regard to weight loss or fat deposits instead of just wanting to tone the abdomen and/or buttocks. Contact the Skin Matters team today to determine if you are a good candidate for EMSCULPT® treatments.
