Love your body, love YOU. Freedom to be at your very best...

Imagine doing 20,000 sit-ups or 20,000 squats in 30 minutes to get your abs toned or butt lifted. It’s actually possible without the intensity of strenuous workouts with the new, groundbreaking technology, EMSCULPT.

EmSculpt is a non-invasive procedure that helps eliminate unwanted fat while building muscle mass to improve body contours. It promotes supramaximal muscle contractions to build muscles at the cellular level. When we expose target muscles to this revolutionary mechanism, they are forced to adapt and respond. This process results in the remodeling of the inner structure of tissue and the construction of muscle fibers and new protein strands.

Despite a proper diet and exercise routine, certain areas of the body do not respond as we would like. With the Derm Institute’s commitment to body contouring, we are proud to be one of the first clinics in North Redondo Beach to introduce EmSculpt to build, tone, and lift muscle in target areas. EmSculpt is an FDA-approved body sculpting device designed to define and tone muscle following a series of four treatments over two weeks.

It contracts muscles beyond what’s possible with intense physical training to yield better results with muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. The fantastic outcomes that patients enjoy are backed by seven clinical studies that show fat loss and muscle tone in the abdomen and buttocks areas.

The Science Behind EmSculpt

EMSCULPT utilizes HIFEM™, High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic energy fields to cause super muscle contractions in areas like the abdomen, arms, legs and buttocks to give tone, definition, and lift. EMSCULPT contracts muscles beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better-defined muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism.

Are you getting ready for that tropical vacation? Or do you want to look great and feel confident here at our local beaches? EmSculpt gives tone and definition to the abs. It can also lift the buttocks without pain, downtime, or surgery – EmSculpt allows you to finally achieve fitness “body goals” that have remained out of reach.

At The Derm Institute, we offer a complete Non-Invasive Body Contouring suite of services including CoolSculpting that can be combined with the power of EMSCULPT to optimize your results and achieve the body of your dreams.

The EmSculpt Treatment

The entire EmSulpt treatment lasts about a half-hour. We encourage you to relax as we position the HIFEM device in the treatment area. Next, we monitor and adjust the device as necessary throughout your treatment to ensure comfort and efficacy. The treatment feels much like an intensive workout as your muscles contract rapidly.

There is no downtime after your session, and you can return to your daily routine. You may experience some soreness and slight swelling that will subside in a matter of days. It takes sometime for your muscular remodeling to occur, so you will notice the best results after two to four weeks from your session.


EmSculpt is an excellent option for men to create sculpted abs, highly defined arms, or address trouble spots that diet and exercise seem to ignore. Many of our male patients combine CoolSculpting and Emsucltp to reduce fat and increase muscle mass. Treatment requires no downtime and can be done in conjunction with your regular workout routine.

Common Questions

Do EMSCULPT treatments hurt?

No, during EMSCULPT treatments you may feel intense muscular contractions, but there is no pain. Afterward, you may or may not have some mild aching, similar to what you feel after a hard workout, which resolves in a few days.

Who is the ideal candidate for EMSCULPT?

Healthy individuals with low BMI, those who want to achieve more definition, are trying to tone the abdomen after pregnancy, have healthy body goals, or simply men and women who want more muscle tone in areas like the abdomen, buttocks, arms or legs. EMSCULPT allows you to achieve fitness goals that remain out of reach despite your best efforts. It’s also the perfect preparation for an upcoming vacation or special occasion like a wedding to get you feeling confident and ready!

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT?

CoolSculpting is primarily utilized to permanently remove areas of stubborn unwanted fat. EMSCULPT works primarily on the muscles themselves, building tone, definition, and lift. The two devices work wonderfully in combination to help you reduce unwanted fat (CoolSculpting) and then give more muscle definition in areas like the abdomen (EMSCULPT). At The Derm Institute, we offer the latest in all non-invasive body sculpting technologies and work with you to customize the optimal plan for your personal body goals.

How long does it take to see results with EMSCULPT?

In clinical trials, maximal results were seen two months after the last treatment. You will likely notice significant results before this time, though.

How long do the results last with EMSCULPT?

With a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can maintain results, although some individuals will want to preserve maximal results with a repeat session every three to six months.
