Can EMSCULPT® Body Contouring Help Me Reach My Gym Body Goals?

By: Dr. Carolyn DeLucia


Many men and women dedicate their daily schedules to strict diets and physical exercise, only to be left with frustrating fat pockets and soft muscles that seem to go untouched. At The Secret Orchid, we offer a wide array of body contouring applications that can give your body that extra boost it needs to help you reach your body sculpting goals. Dr. Carolyn DeLucia works with patients throughout Hillsborough Township, NJ to help them attain their body contouring needs through nonsurgical technologies, including EMSCULPT.


EMSCULPT is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that utilizes high-intensity electromagnetic technology to remove fat and tone muscle. In other words, the EMSCULPT applicators burn fat and stimulate muscle contractions at an accelerated rate. At The Secret Orchid, each EMSCULPT treatment is uniquely tailored to help meet each patient’s personal body contouring goals.

Benefits of EMSCULPT

EMSCULPT can provide men and women with numerous benefits, including:

  • Nonsurgical means to burn fat and tone muscle

  • Quick and easy treatment sessions

  • Little to no recovery time after treatment

  • Fast results

  • Targeted treatment for hard-to-reach fat pockets and soft muscle groups

  • Customized treatment sessions

Areas of the body EMSCULPT can treat

EMSCULPT can be used for the following areas of the body:

  • Abdomen

  • Calves

  • Buttocks

  • Arms

  • Thighs

Dr. DeLucia will review your personal and medical histories to determine if you can safely participate in EMSCULPT treatments.

Can EMSCULPT body contouring help me reach my gym body goals?

EMSCULPT treatments can help men and women attain their body contouring goals, including burning unwanted fat and improving muscle tone. Although EMSCULPT can be used to provide a boost to reaching your gym body goals, it is still considered a cosmetic body contouring treatment and not an alternative to bodybuilding or excessive weight loss.

Can I lose weight with EMSCULPT?

EMSCULPT has been shown to reduce fat cells in targeted treatment areas as measured in percentages. However, EMSCULPT does not help patients lose weight regarding pounds or kilograms.

Can I combine EMSCULPT with other body contouring treatments?

At The Secret Orchid, our team offers additional body contouring techniques that can be combined with EMSCULPT to help you reach your personal goals. Treatments include:

  • Accent Prime laser technology

  • CoolSculpting® technology

How EMSCULPT treatments work

Patients come to The Secret Orchid, where EMSCULPT treatments are performed within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. Applicators are placed at each target site to stimulate muscle contractions for several minutes. Once your treatment session is finished, you are free to return home or resume normal daily activities. Since EMSCULPT stimulates muscle contractions at a rapid pace, patients may experience temporary muscle soreness or tenderness after their appointment. Other possible side effects include stinging sensations, bruising, swelling, and redness for a few days.

How many EMSCULPT treatments will I need?

The number of recommended treatments will differ by patient depending on their personal goals. In typical cases, Dr. DeLucia usually recommends 4 – 5 sessions spaced 2 – 3 days apart for optimal results.
