In our last blog post “Emsculpt: muscle building support” we gave you basic information about this novel treatment method. We explained what Emsculpt is, how the device-assisted muscle building works and what advantages and disadvantages the treatment offers you. Now we want to give you more insight into the different areas of application. At the top of the list of “problem zones” for many patients – and perhaps for you as well – is the abdomen. The dream of a six-pack is not only for men. Of course, many women also want a flat and toned midsection. In this article, we explain why Emsculpt is so ideal for building muscle around the abdomen.
A muscular belly requires a lot of work
If you want to have beautiful, clearly visible abdominal muscles, you have to do a lot for it. A beautiful six-pack requires a lot of effort, sweat and, above all, discipline. But many women and men who want to have a defined midsection don’t have the time to face a hard workout several times a week. Some also reach their limits and become disillusioned because regular workouts don’t pay off. Despite their best efforts, their muscles don’t get “big” enough. You don’t see them – possibly also because they are hiding under a small fat deposit.
Effective muscle building on the abdomen with fat reduction
With the medical Emsculpt procedure, athletes can ease their way to a six-pack. The abdominal muscles are trained very intensively in a very short time – without having to perform strenuous crunches, sit-ups, planks, leg raises or other exercises.
The device generates an electromagnetic field. This penetrates the muscle and stimulates it to contract. So, during the treatment, the abdominal muscles are frequently and strongly contracted. In this way, the body forms new muscle fibers and so-called myofribrils at the treatment site, i.e. building and functional units of the muscle fiber, which are found in striated muscles. A significant increase in the volume of the muscle becomes visible: it grows and becomes stronger, while fat deposits in the affected area disappear. This happens due to the extraordinary muscle strain caused by the Emsculpt treatment. It costs the body or the muscles a lot of energy. The fat cells in this area are made to undergo lipolysis, the biochemical process of fat breakdown. Thus, free fatty acid is provided as “food” to the stressed abdominal muscles. The fat cells die, and the amount of fat on the abdomen is minimized.

Emsculpt is suitable for these persons and “belly types
- For people who have little time
Emsculpt is an optimal training supplement for people who strive for a flat, toned abdomen, but have too little time for intensive training.
- For people who cannot cope with strenuous exercise
Furthermore, the treatment is suitable for people who like to exercise but shy away from very demanding exercises.
- For people with “flabby belly
Emsculpt therapy can help women and men with a flabby belly to get a harmonious figure – especially if they want to lose weight but are not markedly overweight.
- For people who want to see results faster
The equipment-supported muscle building with Emsculpt is also suitable for fitness-conscious people who are already working on their six-pack but would like a “shortcut” on the way to their dream figure.
In our private practice for dermatology and aesthetics in Munich, we use the medical method that works with intensive muscle contractions in rapid succession. The Emsculpt method has been proven by extensive clinical studies, which confirm that the treatment is effective and safe – otherwise we would not offer it in our practice.
By the way, Emsculpt brings the most success when patients are already doing light or even more intense sports and are used to it. We recommend that during and after the treatment cycle, patients should take care to eat an appropriately protein-rich sports diet.
