You’re the first and only provider of Emsculpt
in Montgomery County. How does Emsculpt
work, and what is the difference between
EmSculpt and CoolScultping?
Emsculpt is the first and only treatment that
simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle, resulting
in a “ 6 pack” abdomen or butt lift in four treatment
sessions. It’s this duality that really sets Emsculpt apart.
Using high-intensity focused electromagnetic
(HIFEM) energy, Emsculpt initiates 20,000 muscle
contractions in each 30-minute session. These
supramaximal contractions cause thickening and
strengthening of abdominal and gluteal muscles while
also signaling fat cells to breakdown and die.
MRI studies show increased muscle mass at four
weeks and even more at six months. With a 96 percent
satisfaction rating, Emsculpt is an ideal treatment for
women and men who want to tighten and firm their
abdomen and buttocks, without surgery, recovery
or sweating it out at the gym. The technology works
especially well for athletic patients who want to take
their physiques to the next level.

gold standard treatment worldwide for permanent
destruction of fat cells by selectively freezing them.

body with no downtime.

cells; Emsculpt builds muscle. At the West Institute,
we recommend debulking areas of unwanted fat first
with Coolsculpting, followed by muscle building and
