EMSCULPT Technologies for Muscle Building, Fat Loss, and Skin Tightening

EMSCULPT and EMSCULPT NEO are FDA cleared and clinically tested to build muscle and sculpt your body with no surgery and no downtime. These nonsurgical treatments can tighten, tone, and strengthen the large muscle groups of the abdomen and buttocks as well as of smaller body areas, including the upper arms and calves. The result is increased muscle definition and reduced circumference (when that’s the goal). Dr. Stanislaus and her team treat patients from near and far all over the Central Coast including, Templeton, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo County.


Dr. Stanislaus Says

"These FDA-cleared treatments use high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to improve body contours without working out or dieting. EMSCULPT NEO adds RF energy to melt subcutaneous fat."

About EMSCULPT technologies

EMSCULPT is an FDA-cleared body-sculpting procedure that builds muscle and burns fat. It delivers high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) pulses to the muscle tissue, creating supramaximal muscle contractions that activate more muscle fibers than what you can achieve through normal exercise.

EMSCULPT NEO is a next-generation, FDA-cleared device that simultaneously uses HIFEM and radiofrequency (heat) to eliminate fat and build muscle.

What areas can EMSCULPT technologies treat?

EMSCULPT technology is ideal for people with stubborn areas of fat, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Stanislaus’ staff uses technologies to treat the abdomen, glutes, biceps, triceps, and calves.

  • Abdomen – strengthens, tightens and tones for a more defined six-pack
  • Glutes – lifts and sculpts
  • Arms – increases the size of triceps and biceps while tackling underarm fat
  • Calves – improves the shape and size of calf muscles

Both devices can also reduce muscle separation in the abs, a symptom of diastasis recti, a condition where your abdominal muscles separate (usually during pregnancy) and create a belly pooch. EMSCULPT is the only nonsurgical treatment shown to be effective in treating abdominal separation.

How do EMSCULPT technologies work?

One 30-minute EMSCULPT session produces 20,000-28,000 muscle contractions. These repeated contractions stress the muscles, which triggers rapid changes at the cellular level and increased muscle size and strength.

To supply energy for so many muscle contractions, neighboring fat cells break down via a process called lipolysis. Damaged fat cells eventually die, and the body naturally eliminates them over the coming weeks. The result of the combined action of muscle tightening and fat-cell destruction is stronger, more defined muscles.

EMSCULPT NEO’s RF energy adds heat to the procedure. NEO heats the fat layer to just above 42°C, the temperature at which fat cells begin to break down. Severely damaged fat cells are metabolized and eliminated by the body over the next several weeks, leading to permanent fat loss. Muscles continue to grow and fat continues to shrink for about twelve weeks after you finish your last procedure.

Don't Just Survive. Thrive.

What’s the difference between EMSCULPT and EMSCULPT NEO?

The primary difference is that EMSCULPT NEO adds Radiofrequency (heat) technology. EMSCULPT NEO can treat all the same areas as the original EMSCULPT device, though treatment of the glutes, arms, and calves is frequently done without heat, to avoid the volume loss that would come with fat reduction. Our experienced clinicians will determine which is right for you.

How many EMSCULPT treatments will I need?

4 treatments are recommended.

How should I prepare for the treatment?

Drink plenty of water (and plan to continue this post-treatment) and leave your metal jewelry at home. That’s it!

What should I expect during my EMSCULPT treatment?

The paddles induce powerful involuntary muscle contractions that replicate thousands of voluntary reps. Treatment is initiated at a low intensity and is increased as you acclimate to the feeling of the muscular contractions. There is no pain; just muscle tension and a tapping sensation.

After the treatment, you may feel minor muscle soreness, like after a workout.

How long before I can resume normal activities?

There is no recovery period or downtime with EMSCULPT technologies, so you can have the treatment and return to normal activities immediately.

When will I see results?

Some patients see results after their first treatment. Optimal results are 12 weeks after the final treatment.

How long will results last?

Your results will last as long as you maintain them with regular exercise and maintenance treatments, as necessary (this varies by patient).
