EMSCULPT is the first noninvasive body shaping therapy to build muscle and sculpt the body. While other treatments only reduce excess fat, EMSCULPT also addresses the muscles. This innovative treatment is FDA cleared for the strengthening, firming, and toning of the abdominal muscles as well as the buttocks, while EMSCULPT NEO can also be used on the arms and calves. Q the Medical Spa at Lindsay House is the first and only provider of EMSCULPT in the region and throughout Western New York to offer this treatment.

How It Works

EMSCULPT safely delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to cause supramaximal muscle contractions, which are not achievable through regular, voluntary contractions, such as crunches. These supramaximal contractions force the muscle tissue to adapt and respond by altering its inner structure, which results in muscle building and sculpting of the body. With the addition of radiofrequency heating with the EMSCULPT NEO, on average, clinical studies have shown a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and a 25% growth in muscle volume.

EMSCULPT Candidates

The EMSCULPT procedure can benefit most men and women who want to:

  • Reduce less than an inch of pinchable fat
  • Improve the tone and shape of their stomach, buttocks, arms, or calves

CoolSculpting® is another nonsurgical body contouring option when fat reduction is the only concern.

What to Expect

All EMSCULPT treatments are administered at Q the Medical Spa at Lindsay House. Prior to scheduling a treatment, we require a personal consultation with one of our professionals to explain the procedure and determine whether you are a candidate for it. At that time, we will thoroughly review what EMSCULPT can and cannot achieve to ensure you have realistic expectations and a full understanding of what to expect.

On the day of the procedure, you will be asked to remove all metal jewelry. A typical treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and feels like an intensive workout. You may feel a tolerable heating sensation with the EMSCULPT NEO. During treatment you can lie down and relax.

Recovery After EMSCULPT

There is no recovery period needed with EMSCULPT; you may resume normal, daily activities immediately after treatment. Some soreness might be present for a couple of days, equated to muscle soreness felt after a workout.


Although the results of the EMSCULPT procedure vary, you may begin to feel tangible results right after treatment. Typically, results are reported 2 to 4 weeks after the last session and continue to improve over several weeks.

For desired results, clients typically need a minimum of 4 sessions, scheduled 2 to 3 days apart. We will create a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals during the consultation.
