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

Imagine doing 20,000 sit-ups, squats, curls or dips in 30 minutes or less… to get toned abs, sculpted arms or a lifted butt. It is now possible with a revolutionary body contouring device called EMSCULPT.

At times, despite a good diet and exercise routine, certain areas of the body are not targeted as fiercely as we would like. With The Derm Institute’s commitment to body contouring, we are proud to be one of the first to introduce EMSCULPT to build tone, muscle, and lift in targeted areas of the body. EMSCULPT is an FDA-Approved body contouring device designed to define and sculpt muscle tone following a series of 4 treatments over 2 weeks.

Commonly treated areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks (for lifting)
  • Biceps
  • Triceps
  • Thighs

In clinical studies, patients achieved:

  • 96% patient satisfaction
  • 19% reduction of fat
  • 4 cm (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 5 x increase in fat metabolism
  • 80% of patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks

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.


Getting ready for that tropical vacation? Or just want to look great and feel confident here at our local beaches? EMSCULPT is the perfect complement to tone and give definition to the abs, arms or lift the buttock area 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.


We often get asked whether body contouring treatments like EMSCULPT are appropriate for men and the answer is, “absolutely!” EMSCULPT is a great option for men and can be used to create those sculpted abs, more defined arms, or even address other locations that you want to define that haven’t been touched by diet or exercise. In fact, we see a lot of men who come in for CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT—as the muscle building powers of EMSCULPT is a perfect complement to the fat fighting freezing of CoolSculpting. With no downtime, you’re able to return to your normal workouts and routines, and because the treatments are short, you spend a very short amount of time in the office!

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 2 months after the last treatment.

How long do the results last with EMSCULPT?

With a healthy diet and regular exercise, your results can be maintained, although some individuals will want to maintain maximal results with a repeat session every 3-6 months.
