Emsculpt Q&A


EMSCULPT is an FDA-approved, noninvasive body sculpting procedure. It doesn’t require any anesthetic, and you won’t need to take time off or rest after your treatments. Lehigh Valley Weight Loss recommends EMSCULPT for building muscle and burning fat in people who want to tone and refine their bodies.

EMSCULPT can tighten, strengthen, and tone the large muscle groups in your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, as well as smaller muscles in your upper arms and calves. The result is better muscle definition. Many people benefit from a significant improvement in their muscle tone and strength after EMSCULPT treatments.

How does EMSCULPT work?

EMSCULPT uses the noninvasive HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electro-magnetic) therapy procedure to induce powerful muscle contractions. These contractions are far stronger than those you could achieve by voluntarily tensing your muscles.

When exposed to the powerful HIFEM contractions, your muscle tissue has to adapt to the extreme environment. It responds by remodeling its inner structure, which builds muscle and sculpts your body.

HIFEM is better than doing 20,000 crunches, squats, or curls. In addition, it only takes four treatments of 20-30 minutes each over 2-4 weeks to achieve excellent results.

What are the benefits of EMSCULPT?

EMSCULPT is an excellent choice for people who want to lose weight and improve muscle tone. Increasing muscle tone in your core and buttocks, the largest muscles in your body, also increases your metabolism. When your metabolism speeds up, you burn more calories at rest, accelerating your weight loss.

The perfect addition to Smartlipo®, EMSCULPT enhances body sculpting for even better, more defined results. You could achieve:

  • 19% reduction in fat
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • Firmer, rounder, and lifted buttocks
  • No muscle volume loss
  • Smaller waist
  • Toned six-pack and core
  • Leaner and more toned arms, calves, and thighs

EMSCULPT patient satisfaction scores are frequently around 96%. The treatment can also help with low back pain by strengthening both your back muscles and those in your core, which support your back.


EMSCULPT is generally safe and well-tolerated by most people. Other than temporary muscle soreness, there are no known side effects. You leave your appointment free of any bruising, redness, or numbness.
