It’s no secret that we all want to look our best. We want to be able to wear the clothes we want to wear and feel confident in our own skin. And, let’s be honest, we all want to be able to lose a little bit of weight. But, how much weight can you really lose with multiple EMSCULPT treatments?


EMSCULPT is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to destroy fat cells and build muscle. It is FDA-cleared to treat the abdomen and buttocks, and is the only non-invasive procedure that can help you build muscle.

How Does EMSCULPT Work

EMSCULPT treatments use HIFEM energy to induce powerful muscle contractions. These contractions are much stronger than what you can achieve on your own, and they lead to the destruction of fat cells and the development of muscle. The treated area will typically see a 20-25% reduction in fat, and an increase in muscle mass.

EMSCULPT is most often used on the abdomen and buttocks, but can also be used on the arms, thighs, and back. A typical EMSCULPT treatment plan will involve 4-6 sessions, spaced 2-3 weeks apart.

During your EMSCULPT treatment, you will lie down on a treatment table. The EMSCULPT device will be placed on your skin, and you will feel a series of contractions. These contractions are not painful, but you may feel a tingling sensation. The contractions will gradually increase in intensity until they reach their peak.

What Can You Expect from EMSCULPT Treatments

Most people see noticeable results after just two or three EMSCULPT treatments. However, you may need up to six treatments to achieve your desired results. EMSCULPT treatments are typically scheduled two to three days apart.

You should start to see results within a few weeks of your first treatment. However, the full effects of EMSCULPT can take up to six months to appear.

What Are the Side Effects of EMSCULPT

The EMSCULPT treatment is safe and effective, with minimal side effects. The most common side effects of EMSCULPT are soreness, bruising, and redness. These side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

How Much Weight Can You Lose with Multiple EMSCULPT Treatments

A study that was published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology in 2021 found that patients who underwent four EMSCULPT treatments (two treatments per week for two weeks) lost about 4.4 cm of fat from the abdominal circumference and about a 1.0 cm increase in the buttocks.

Although results may vary from person to person, many people who have EMSCULPT treatments see a noticeable reduction in fat in the treated area. In fact, in a clinical study, 100% of people who had EMSCULPT treatments on their abdomen saw a decrease in fat.

On average, people who have EMSCULPT treatments lose about 4 centimeters (cm) of fat. However, some people may lose more fat, while others may lose less.


If you’re looking to lose fat, EMSCULPT treatments may be for you. With multiple treatments, you can lose a significant amount of fat, and you may even see some results after just one treatment. However, it’s important to note that EMSCULPT is not a weight-loss treatment, and it’s not for everyone. So, if you’re considering EMSCULPT, be sure to talk to your doctor first.
