Do you exercise on a regular basis and eat nutritious, balanced meals but struggle to tone your midsection or buttocks? If so, you could be a candidate for EMSCULPT. This nonsurgical body sculpting technology helps patients strengthen and tone their glutes or abdominals in-office using HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic) energy, which offers results comparable to hours spent doing crunches or squats. At Bay Area Plastic Surgery, we enjoy helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals in a manner that suits their lifestyle. For many, this means nonsurgical procedures that are designed to provide results without downtime or long recoveries. This is why we are so excited to offer EMSCULPT. Within a 30-minute session, EMSCULPT contracts the muscles surrounding the treatment area about 20,000 times to create a more chiseled appearance. Call our office in San Francisco, CA to learn more about EMSCULPT and how it can improve your self-esteem and help you reach your fitness goals.

"The best in the Bay Area - the staff is highly professional & offers full service. I was a referral and have referred several friends who have been equally pleased- actually delighted with their results. Now that I'm almost 60, I m looking for effective treatment to make me feel and look naturally younger and healthier, so I plan to visit Dr. Gray again!"- J.M. / Yelp / Apr 20, 2020
EMSCULPT procedures typically last for about 30 minutes. For those who choose to treat both their abdominal and buttocks areas at the same time, sessions could last longer. During the appointment, you will rest comfortably while the EMSCULPT handpiece is lowered onto your body. As the high-frequency energy begins to work, you will feel the light contracting of your muscles, which will intensify as the treatment continues. Many compare the sensation to that of a vigorous workout. Our team will supervise your session and modify the treatment to ensure you stay relaxed and comfortable. Following your appointment, it will feel like you just completed a tough workout.
What to Expect
Patients may resume their daily activities immediately after the session. Because the treatment is noninvasive, you will not experience any significant side effects, although muscle soreness is common. Over the following week, you may notice continued soreness in the treatment area. Rest assured that this is normal. Patients should avoid targeting the treatment area when working out for a few days after their session. Dr. Gray will develop a treatment plan that includes the number of treatments recommended to achieve your aesthetic goals. However, 2 EMSculpt sessions per week for 2 weeks is the average number of treatments needed for optimum results." "The buttocks requires a total of 6 treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much will my EMSCULPT treatment cost?
The cost of your EMSCULPT treatment will include the total number of sessions Dr. Gray recommends to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. This could include multiple sessions. We encourage patients to focus on the end goal of attaining a chiseled and toned physique versus the cost of each individual session. To help you afford your treatment, we accept a number of payment methods and may be able to help you apply for medical financing.
Who is a good candidate for EMSCULPT?
The best candidates for EMSCULPT maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine and are at a stable weight. EMSCULPT is not a weight loss solution and will not provide favorable results for those with high body fat percentages. To learn whether EMSCULPT is a good treatment for you, schedule a consultation at Bay Area Plastic Surgery.
How many sessions will I need?
In most cases, patients need up to six sessions to achieve their goal look. Many patients notice mild results after each session. To learn how many sessions are recommended for you, schedule a meeting with Dr. Gray who will assess your body type and aesthetic goals and help create a treatment plan for you.
How soon will I see results?
While many patients notice results after each session, the most dramatic results will not be noticeable for a few weeks while you attend repeat sessions. Additionally, as is the case with any muscle mass, you will need to continue working out and maintain a stable weight to protect and prolong your results.
