Emsculpting is a new form of body contouring used to improve muscle toning and firmness and break down stubborn fat. The machine works by involuntarily contracting the muscles with electromagnetic fields and stimulates the growth of new muscle fibers. Allure states that the emsculpting machine triggers 20,000 muscle contractions within just 30 minutes. This revolutionary body contouring technology differs greatly from other more invasive fat loss treatments. The results from emsculpting alone are reason enough to look into this body contouring treatment, but the additional benefits of emsculpting might make the decision to start treatments even easier. 

  1. Boosts Metabolism

Emsculpting works to reduce body fat and increase muscle — and more muscle in the body can lead to a higher metabolism which allows you to burn more calories. This can help you on your weight loss journey by kick-starting your metabolism to help your body perform the way you want it to perform. According to Verywell Fit, muscle is three times more metabolically active than fat. The more muscle you gain from using the emsculpting machine, the more metabolically active you could be after your treatments are done.

  1. Can Make Working Out Easier

Increasing your metabolism not only helps with energy levels but can also make workouts easier. According to Vogue, the emsculpting machine helps build muscle in targeted areas which give you more strength for physical activity. This means you can build muscle in areas without working out.

Working out after emsculpting treatments will help maintain results and reduce the risk of losing the muscle definition. According to Aspire Regenerative, you can work out after the conclusion of treatment, but your muscles will most likely feel sore. It is recommended that you wait to work out to avoid fatigue and stress on your body. In addition to strengthening muscles, emsculpting can be used in addition to physical therapy by helping build up lost muscle or repair a muscle that has been injured.

  1. Non-invasive Procedure

Emsculpting does not require any surgical procedures and is only placed on top of the skin during treatments. With no incisions made into the skin, there is little to no recovery time and you can go about your normal routine with minimal negative side effects. Some patients experience muscle soreness after sessions but stretching can help speed up the process of minimizing discomfort. According to West Institute, emsculpting is a great alternative to procedures that require surgery like liposuction or tummy tucks. Emsculpting provides similar results as it’s the only non-invasive contouring treatment that works to break down body fat and build muscle mass.

  1. Quick Treatment Process

After a few sessions using the emsculpting machine, patients start seeing results of fat loss and muscle toning fairly quickly. Plus, the procedure is non-invasive, so the results are all-natural. According to Mizuguchi, results are usually noticeable two weeks after treatments. It’s recommended to get two to three treatments a week for two to four weeks. Emsculpting results are different for everyone though so it’s best to schedule a consultation.

  1. Lasting Results

As with any weight-loss treatment, it’s important to remain active post-treatment to maintain any progress made. This applies to emsculpting as well. Once fat cells are removed from the body they will stay off as long as you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle, according to Luminary MD. Muscle built during this treatment must be maintained by regular activity to prevent muscle loss. Emsculpting can help dramatically increase muscle mass on your body faster than from just working out.

If you’re looking to reduce fat in the abdominal area, this quick 15-minute abdominal workout from Self can help prepare you for an emsculpting treatment and maintain the results after. It’s recommended that you consistently engage the area of the body treated with emsculpting so you can stay looking and feeling your best.

A 15-Minute No-Equipment Core Workout You Can Do at Home


  • Perform each exercise for one minute, resting 30 seconds after each move.
  • As you get comfortable, you can swap that 30 seconds of rest for jogging in place, suggests West. Keep track of your reps, and try to squeeze in more every time you do the workout, she adds.
  1. Plank to Dolphin
  • Start in a forearm plank with your forearms on the floor, elbows directly underneath your shoulders, hands facing forward so that your arms are parallel and legs extended behind you. Tuck your tailbone and engage your core, butt and quads. This is the starting position.
  • Press through your forearms and lift your hips up and back, creating an inverted V shape with your body. Your head should now be between your shoulders.
  • Pause for a second and then slowly lower back into a forearm plank.
  • Continue this movement for 1 minute.


      2. Push-Up

  • Start in a high plank with your palms flat on the floor, hands shoulder-width apart, shoulders stacked directly above your wrists, legs extended behind you with your core and glutes engaged.
  • Bend your elbows and lower your body to the floor. Drop to your knees if needed.
  • Push through the palms of your hands to straighten your arms.
  • Continue for 1 minute.


     3. Plank Tap

  • Start in a high plank position with your palms flat on the floor, hands shoulder-width apart, shoulders stacked directly above your wrists, legs extended behind you with your core and glutes engaged.
  • Tap your right hand to your left shoulder while engaging your core and glutes to keep your hips as still as possible so that they’re not swaying from side to side.
  • Do the same thing with your left hand to right shoulder.
  • Continue alternating sides for 1 minute.
  • To make this easier, try separating your legs a little more.

     4. Forearm Side Plank With Twist

  • Start in a forearm side plank by propping your body up on your left forearm, with your elbow stacked underneath your shoulder and your hand in front of your body. Extend your legs and stack your right foot on top of your left, then squeeze your abs and glutes to lift your hips off the floor.
  • Place your right arm behind your head, with your elbow bent and pointing up toward the ceiling. This is the starting position.
  • Rotate your torso toward the floor, bringing your right elbow to meet your left hand. Don’t let your hips drop — the movement should just come from your core.
  • Then, reverse the movement to return to the starting position.
  • Continue for 1 minute. Then repeat for 1 minute on the opposite side.


      5. Bicycle Crunch

  • Lie face up with your legs in tabletop position (knees bent 90 degrees and stacked over your hips). Place your hands behind your head, elbows bent and pointing out to the sides. Use your abs to curl your shoulders off the floor. This is the starting position.
  • Twist to bring your right elbow to your left knee, while simultaneously straightening your right leg.
  • Then, twist to bring your left elbow to your right knee, simultaneously straightening your left leg.
  • Continue alternating sides for 1 minute. Go at a slow and steady pace so that you can really twist and feel your abs working.


      6. Plank to Downward Dog Tap

  • Start in a high plank with your wrists under your shoulders and your feet hip-width apart.
  • Push your hips up and back to move into a Downward Dog with your heels reaching toward the floor.
  • Keep your core tight and shift your weight forward to come back into a high plank.
  • Continue for 1 minute.


      7. Diamond Push-Up

  • Start in a high plank with your palms flat on the floor, hands shoulder-width apart, shoulders stacked directly above your wrists, legs extended behind you with your core and glutes engaged.
  • Walk your hands together so that your thumbs and forefingers form a triangle. This is the starting position.
  • Bend your elbows to lower your chest toward the ground. Then, straighten your arms and push your body back up to the starting position. This is 1 rep.
  • To make this easier, drop your knees to the ground. Just make sure to keep your core tight and your hips tucked in this position.
  • Continue for 1 minute.


      8. Lateral Plank Walk

  • Start in a high plank position with your palms flat on the floor, hands shoulder-width apart, shoulders stacked directly above your wrists, legs extended behind you with your core and glutes engaged.
  • Take a step to the right starting with your right hand and right foot and following with your left hand and foot, maintaining a plank position as you move. This is 1 rep.
  • Do a set amount of reps in one direction, and then repeat the same amount moving in the opposite direction.
  • Continue for 1 minute.


      9. Boat Pose

  • Sit up straight with your legs bent, feet flat on the floor.
  • Keeping your legs together, slowly lift them off the floor until they form a 45-degree angle to your torso. Engage your entire core, keep your back flat and balance on your tailbone.
  • You can keep your knees bent (as pictured) or straighten them out for more of a challenge.
  • Reach your arms straight out in front of you, parallel to the floor. If you feel that you need some extra support, place your hands on the floor, underneath your hips.
  • Hold here for 1 minute.
