Build Muscle. Sculpt Your Body.
Do you feel like you’re putting in the time at the gym but still not reaching your goals? It’s time to try something that can help you look and feel how you want!
At Woodlands OBGYN, we offer Emsculpt, the only procedure to help both men and women sculpt their body and build muscle. It is a non-invasive body toning procedure that can help you achieve amazing results that would otherwise take months at the gym. While other body contouring machines focus solely on skin and fat, Emsculpt stimulates and builds muscle at the same time. Spend less time at the gym, more time for yourself and still get the body of your dreams.
Fact is, Emsculpt is FDA-approved and safe. It’s a great way to feel great about the definition and contours of your body. What’s not to love?
How does Emsculpt work?
Emsculpt is non-invasive. This means we are able to produce impressive results without the use of knives, needles, anesthesia or other surgical devices. You can just lay back and relax while the machine does the work. The machine is placed on the outside of your body and induces powerful muscle contractions induced by High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) energy. This energy is able to induce contractions in your muscles that are more powerful than what would be achievable through voluntary contractions (even with aide from a personal trainer). These contractions are so powerful that one 30 minute session is the equivalent of doing 22,000 sit ups.
Am I a good candidate for Emsculpt?
Emsculpt isn’t a weight-loss treatment; it’s a body-contouring treatment. These innovative treatments are intended for patients with a BMI of 25 or less. That would be in the “normal” category. Emsculpt provides more noticeable results in patients who are thinner and have more muscle visibility. The core strength gains are the same for all patients, but the visible component of these treatments is more prevalent if you are at your ideal BMI for your height.
People with implanted devices, such as pacemakers, are not candidates as the electromagnetic energy of Emsculpt can interfere with the device.
How long does the Emsculpt Treatment take and when will I see results?
Your Emsculpt treatment plan will be dependant on your specific goals and we will take the time to make a plan that works for you. Often, there is a minimum of four 30-minute treatment sessions that are spread out through a few weeks. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session. Your results will continue to improve several weeks following your treatments.
Is there any preparation necessary for an Emsculpt session?
No preparation is necessary before your Emsculpt session at Woodlands OBGYN. As mentioned above, you could consider weight loss as preparation if you need to get down to a BMI of 25 or less. That’s because Emsculpt works best when the patient is already at a healthy weight and is in relatively good physical condition. That’s when the most sculpting is achieved.
Is there recovery after Emsculpt?
This non-invasive treatment does not require any recovery time after. You will not have to schedule any downtime following your treatment.
Are Emsculpt treatments painful?
With the powerful contractions this device produces, it may seem like the Emsculpt may be painful, but most patients have described the treatment as an ‘intense workout’. There is no downtime or recovery necessary following treatment.

Is Emsculpt safe? Are there side effects?
The FDA has approved Emsculpt for body contouring. Because Emsculpt simply triggers muscle contractions, just as you would with exercise, there aren’t any risks or side effects. Yes, 20,000 sit-ups, about what a typical session equals, isn’t a naturally attainable number, but Emsculpt has been proven to have no side effects. Patients can have some mild muscle soreness, as you would have after a typical workout, but that’s it. You can immediately go back to work or your normal activities after your Emsculpt session.
How much does Emsculpt cost?
The cost of our Emsculpt treatments at Woodlands OBGYN varies depending upon the area of your body you’re working on. When you come in for a consultation to see if Emsculpt is right for you, we can give you an exact estimate of how much an Emsculpt session will cost.
Does insurance cover Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is considered to be an elective procedure. As such it is not covered by health insurance.
