Emsculpt - is a non-invasive procedure to build muscle and reduce fat. Emsculpt works by using electromagnetic energy to make muscles contract so they can grow, and kills fat cells at the same time. The protocol is to treat twice a week for two weeks for a maximum of four treatments. In four treatments, the patient will see the following results in the treated area: a 19% reduction in fat and a 16% increase in muscle. The areas that can be treated are the abdomen, buttocks, arms and calves. The procedure is safe, and FDA approved. The only side effects are temporary soreness in the treated area, which subsides after a few hours.
