Body Sculpting with EmSculpt by Dr. Patricia Yugueros in John’s Creek, GA

Body sculpting in all its forms has become one of the most popular suites of cosmetic treatments in the world. Celebs swear by it, patients love it, and depending on what results you’re looking for, it can be a dream come true.

For patients who are looking to do more than just eliminate excess fat cells, though, EmSculpt may be the very best option available. This ground-breaking technology has the power to reduce fat in trouble areas while simultaneously firming your muscle tone, creating a sculpted look that many people spend months in the gym trying to achieve.

Below, we’ll break down what makes this procedure so unique, and what you can expect during the treatment and recovery process. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 678-892-7820 today.

What Makes EmSculpt Unique?

EmSculpt is an FDA-cleared, state-of-the-art technology that utilizes high-intensity electromagnetic energy. It works to initiate incredibly fast supramaximal contractions, which are impossible to achieve with voluntary muscle action alone. It can improve muscle tone, strengthen and tone the abdomen, and firm the buttocks with no necessary downtime.

Of the multiple new non-invasive body shaping systems, EmSculpt is the most recent, and the only treatment with the added benefits of toning your muscles. In combination with a healthy lifestyle, EmSculpt makes maintaining a fit, firm body considerably easier. Research has shown this revolutionary treatment can reduce fat cells by 19 percent while building muscle fibers by 16 percent.

In just a 30-minute non-invasive treatment, you can target:

  • Belly fat reduction
  • Six-pack abs sculpting
  • A non-surgical butt lift
  • Increased thigh tone
  • Flank sculpting
  • Upper arm tone

What’s more, EmSculpt has been shown to increase your metabolism, meaning you’ll burn more calories as you exercise after your treatment.

How Does EmSculpt Work?

EmSculpt’s powered by thorough scientific research, causing 20,000 muscle contractions in just a half-hour. This action triggers your muscles to constrict far beyond what’s ordinarily possible. Alongside muscle contractions, EmSculpt focuses fat loss to the treated area (exponentially better than with situps or crunches.) As your muscles experience the intense pulses, they release local chemicals signaling fat cells in the area to break down and free fatty acids.

After EmSculpt, fat cells are naturally metabolized and absorbed by the body. Finally, your muscles will undergo a strengthening and thickening cellular change, leading to a refined tone.


In contrast to other non-invasive or non-surgical body contouring treatments, EmSculpt’s results appear quite rapidly with visible improvement after just a single session. We recommend four sessions spaced out by a few days in between each visit. Four weeks after your final session, you’ll see the full results and a fantastic figure. EmSculpt results are comparable to maintaining regular exercise and a strict diet for six months.

The only area that requires a slightly different protocol is the buttocks. This procedure’s goal is to increase gluteal muscle and create a perky, round look without destroying any of the fat that makes your butt shapely. Whatever area you choose to treat, sessions are highly effective and comfortable–most patients say it feels like a strenuous workout. The only real difference is you get to lie down and relax the whole time, no sweating or gym smell necessary.

The EmSculpt Procedure

For most areas of the body, EmSculpt only requires a 30-minute, three-phase process. The first two phases are quite similar, with the second increasing from a few hundred pulses per minute to a few thousand. Depending on your tolerance and preference, we can adjust impulse speeds. You’ll be able to see your muscles moving slightly beneath the skin, and there may be some slight discomfort (though no more than a hard session at the gym).

As for phase three, you’ll experience a “cool down” as the pulses slow to flush out lactic acid and other toxins your muscles will have released. This step also helps to alleviate soreness post-treatment. From there, you can return to your regular activities!

The Ideal EmSculpt Candidate

EmSculpt is best suited for healthy individuals close to their goal weights (within 30 pounds) who want to refine and sculpt their physique. Men and women who work out regularly and eat a balanced diet, but who still struggle to burn that last bit of fat and build muscle make excellent candidates. It’s also essential to have positive but realistic expectations of EmSculpt’s results.

If you have an electronic implant in your intended treatment area or are pregnant, let your doctor know during your consultation. We’ll work with you to be sure you find a body contouring solution that is safe, effective, and affordable. If you have a history of hemorrhaging or have epilepsy, we do not recommend you try EmSculpt. Further, if you are menstruating, we recommend putting off treatment, as HIFEM energy can increase menstrual cramps.

EmSculpt FAQs

Why is EmSculpt considered so revolutionary?

EmSculpt is the world’s first and only non-invasive and non-surgical body sculpting treatment that burns fat and builds muscle at the same time. Not only that, but it can provide an utterly non-invasive butt-lift. Altogether, this is truly a game-changer.

How does EmSculpt get rid of fat?

By using the HIFEM applicator, your doctor stimulates high levels of muscle contractions (also called supramaximal muscle contractions). Your body naturally raises its metabolism and breaks down fat to accommodate these contractions, far more than you ever could at the gym alone.

What preparations should I make before or after treatment?

None. Emsculpt is non-invasive, so it requires no before or after preparations.

How long is the procedure?

Your treatment session is less than most serious workouts, lasting approximately thirty minutes for each session with a recommended four sessions spaced two to three days apart. We will help plan a tailored EmScupt regimen to meet your specific goals.

How does the EmSculpt treatment feel?

The best way to describe how this body sculpting treatment feels is to compare it to an extensive workout where your muscles are active periodically for thirty minutes. You may also feel a prickling sensation during the procedure.

Is EmSculpt painful?

As mentioned above, EmSculpt feels much like an intense workout for a half hour.

Is Emsculpt clinically tested?

Yes, EmSculpt has shown robust results in clinical studies completed by seven independent groups (in the US alone) looking to find the safety and efficacy of the treatment. The FDA has also cleared this treatment for use.

Does EmSculpt tighten skin?

Although it is a highly effective treatment for building muscle and reducing fat, EmSculpt is not a skin tightening procedure. However, there may be some tighter skin in target areas due to larger muscles.

When will I see the results?

The muscles in the target areas will feel stronger after each session, with an increase in muscle mass two to four weeks after your treatment is complete. You will see an improvement of overlying fat after three months. We suggest you continue your exercise regimen after treatments. Some patients repeat the Emsculpt procedure every six months to maintain optimal body contours.

How much does EmSculpt Cost?

As for pricing, EmSculpt’s cost varies depending on your desired treatment area and the number of treatments you intend to receive. During your consultation, we’ll work with you one-on-one to customize your treatment plan and find what works best for your lifestyle and budget. We’ll breakdown all costs once we determine the details and also offer several financing options.
