Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your body — but it may not always yield the results you want. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were an easier way to build muscle, lose fat, and achieve a toned body that you are proud to show off? There is! Come talk to our team about Emsculpt in Houston. This innovative and non-invasive treatment can quickly help you develop a leaner, stronger figure — all without a single trip to the gym.
Emsculpt is an FDA-cleared device that causes muscle contractions, thereby strengthening the target muscles and promoting fat loss. The contractions are more than what you could achieve through traditional physical training. Emsculpt is nonsurgical and requires no downtime after treatments. Studies show that it can be effective for producing more toned abs and buttock muscles in as few as four sessions.
Emsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to stimulate the muscles, causing them to contract powerfully and repeatedly. In fact, in just a single 30-minute Emsculpt session, your body could go through the equivalent of 20,000 squats or sit ups! How is that possible? The machine uses a precise pattern of stimulation to help your muscles reach their full potential. By helping you build muscle, it also promotes increased fat metabolism.
Emsculpt boasts a patient satisfaction rate of over 96%. Even some celebrities have used it to look and feel their best on the red carpet. Overall, patients experience an average fat loss of 19% in target areas, with a 5-fold increase in fat metabolism. A loss of 1.5 inches of waist circumference is also commonly achieved with Emsculpt.
Emsculpt is generally best for healthy adults who stick to a regular exercise routine. You should also be close to your ideal weight; Emsculpt is not intended for individuals who are looking for dramatic weight loss results. It is usually used to help patients achieve more toned abs or buttocks. However, it can also be used on other areas of the body, including the triceps and thighs.
Your first step is to attend a consultation with Dr. Moosavi and our team. Once we verify that you are a good candidate for Emsculpt, we will recommend a customized treatment plan. Most patients will need two 30-minute sessions every 5-10 days to achieve their desired results. After your initial set of treatments, you may need to come in for maintenance appointments every 3 – 6 months.
Emsculpt is not painful. However, you will feel some tension in your muscles as they contract. After your treatment, you may notice that your muscles are sore — like you just completed a strength training workout. Any discomfort should subside within a day or two. You may begin to see results after your first session, but it usually takes at least four sessions to enjoy a maximum increase in muscle tone.

The primary difference between Emsculpt in Houston and Emsculpt Neo is the technology that is used in the treatment. Original Emsculpt causes powerful muscle contractions that help to tone the body and reduce fat stores. Emsculpt Neo does that — and more. It also uses powerful radiofrequency heat energy delivered through special electrodes. The radiofrequency energy enhances the fat-burning aspect of the treatment because it heats layers of fat to the point where they begin to physically break down. Afterward, the body naturally metabolizes the damaged fat cells, leading to permanent fat loss.
Many patients experience a prickling sensation as their muscles are stimulated. Afterward, it is normal to feel a bit sore — similar to what you might experience after an intense strength training session in the gym. The radiofrequency aspect of Emsculpt Neo uses heat to destroy fat, so you can expect a warm sensation to accompany your treatment as well. There is no downtime or extended recovery period required after an Emsculpt Neo session.
Emsculpt Neo is generally geared for healthy people of a wide range of sizes and shapes. In fact, individuals with a BMI of up to 35 may be able to benefit from it. However, there are some groups who should not undergo this treatment. These include:
When you visit us for your consultation, we will take a thorough medical history and learn about your treatment goals before we can determine whether Emsculpt Neo is right for you.
During your consultation, we will be able to provide you with a cost estimate for your Emsculpt Neo treatment. You can expect to pay at least several hundred dollars per 30-minute session. Although that might seem like a steep price, it is important to consider the benefits the treatment can provide. This unique body contouring device can accomplish what even the most rigorous workout routine never could!
There are very few risks associated with this treatment. In addition to muscle soreness, some patients experience redness in the treatment area. If you have any concerns after your Emsculpt Neo session, please reach out to our team immediately.
