How is Emsculpt different than other fat removal procedures?

There are stark differences between Emsculpt and other fat removal procedures around today. "In a very key way, there's no other device out there that actually tones or builds muscles," Dr. Akhavan said. "The way the emsculpt works is by causing these muscles to contract 20,000 times in 30 minutes, and that builds muscle tissue just like exercising but to a much greater extent. It's burning the local fat stores up because these muscles need calories to feed them for this contraction."

Dr. Frank agreed that this is the first device that removes fat by "working out the underlying muscle." He added: "FDA-cleared for the strengthening, toning, and firming of the abdomen and butt, Emsculpt delivers superior contouring results that existing non-invasive body shaping therapies cannot match."

"This is not a treatment for weight loss; it’s best for individuals who are in good shape already and serves as an ‘icing on the cake’ treatment. I believe that this type of technology will do for the body, what Botox did for the face." Dr. Frank said.
