In this day and age of modern technology, we have seen safe and effective methods by which people can achieve their desired physical beauty and features. For one, EMSculpt is one of the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedures offered by plastic surgery practitioners.

The high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) therapeutic equipment may appear to be something out of a science fiction film. Perhaps this is why many patients who are interested in EMSculpt will ask about its effectiveness during the course of the talk.

Here, we will highlight recent clinical data that confirms EMSculpt’s efficacy and benefits. Read on as we take a closer look at the effectiveness of this treatment today.

EMSculpt and Body Mass Index (BMI)

According to recent research, EMSculpt is successful in decreasing BMI without creating any negative side effects. In the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology in September 2018, it was found that an association between the HIFEM technique and BMI. It included 22 individuals who received four abdominal EMSculpt treatments.

The EMSculpt method causes supramaximal muscular contractions by contouring the body with a device. After four thirty-minute treatments spaced two to three days apart, abdominal contractions resulted in a reduction in waist circumference. 

Patients’ waist circumferences had decreased by about two inches by the end of the third month. There were no negative effects reported by participants, and 92% were delighted with the results.

EMSculpt and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) 

MRI has recently been used in research to evaluate EMSculpt. In 2018, another experiment was done with 22 patients, each of whom received four abdominal EMSculpt treatments. The researchers used the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) approach because it is an accurate way of recognizing changes in tissue.

According to the study’s findings, there was a 19% drop in abdominal fat, a 15% rise in abdominal muscle tissue, and a 10% decrease in abdominal muscle separation. This also concluded that this body sculpting process has the potential to be long-lasting.

EMSculpt and its Lifting and Shaping Effects

According to the findings of a recent study, EMSculpt lifts and desirably shapes buttocks. In May 2019, a study was done to investigate the potential of EMSculpt to improve the appearance and shape of buttocks. In the study, 21 different women participated in four distinct 30-minute EMSculpt sessions.

Throughout the research, not a single EMSculpt patient experienced any discomfort. While patients were undergoing treatment, independent evaluators examined their photographs. EMSculpt is a viable alternative to more invasive procedures for improving buttock shape, volume, and skin and tissue drooping, according to independent research. These advantages can be obtained by tightening the skin above the buttocks.

EMSculpt and Satisfaction of the Self-Esteem

According to recent research, EMSculpt increases patients’ levels of pleasure and self-esteem. In a November trial, 75 people were given HIFEM in order to improve the strength of their gluteal muscles. After four treatments, 85% of trial participants reported a “significant” improvement in the tone, shape, lift, and firmness of their buttocks. As a result, the patients’ claimed levels of confidence in themselves increased clinically significantly.


Beyond physical beauty, EMSculpt is a way to improve one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Now that we see the effectiveness of this treatment, it has now become a viable option for those who want to experience a new and healthier body.
