Is EMSCULPT Right for you?

You may have seen it in magazines like ELLE and Allure, but really want to know more about the hottest new treatment called EMSCULPT? EMSCULPT is available at our Germain Summerville office and Germain Dermatology Mount Pleasant office. Here's more details...



Diets and sit-ups are good for your health and can often—but not always—help shape and tone a belly that needs a little work. The same goes for squats and buttocks. That said, when it comes to body sculpting, the Charleston, SC, based team at Germain Dermatology knows that women and men alike can make lifestyle changes and put in hours upon hours of work in order to tone their abdomen and lift their backside, but may struggle to get the results they are hoping for. EMSCULPT® can change that.

EMSCULPT® uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®) to force fat to metabolize and muscles to grow stronger, all without surgery. The body sculpting treatment is ideal for patients who are not looking to lose a significant amount of weight, but who want to refine their appearance by giving their abdomen or buttocks extra definition.



When properly directed and carefully calibrated, electromagnetic energy can make muscles tense up in what are known as supramaxial contractions. The EMSCULPT® device is positioned directly against the area targeted for body sculpting, where it deploys HIFEM® that passes through the skin and causes approximately 20,000 muscle contractions in about half an hour.


These contractions build muscle tissue very rapidly by increasing myofibers in terms of both size and numbers. The volume of the muscles increases, and they get stronger. This is ideal for body sculpting based on creating more definition.

The contractions also send nearby fat cells into a state known as apoptosis, which means they have been killed and marked for clearing away by natural processes in the body. This reduces the volume attributable to fat cells in the targeted area, making well-defined muscles even more visible.

When paired together in a single treatment, fat reduction and the building up of muscles lead to improved contours. This process does take time. Germain Dermatology recommends that patients interested in body sculpting with EMSCULPT® plan for at least four treatment sessions.





Fat cells damaged by a body sculpting treatment are cleared out over a matter of weeks and months. Even after the final of a series of sessions, contours can continue to improve for months as muscles continue to strengthen and fat cells continue to be processed.

The treated area can feel sore, similar to how muscles feel after an intense workout.

We are proud to offer free consultations to see if you're a candidate for EMSCULPT. Call us at 843-881-4440.
