30 Minute Treatment. Non-invasive lipo results. No Down time. Clinically Established. Available to Adelaide first at Burnside Cosmetic.

EMSCULPT is the world’s first FDA-approved*1 device to sculpt the body and has been entered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods –  ARTG 316563. It is the only non-invasive, non-surgical aesthetic treatment to build muscle and burn fat. With established muscle development and fat loss in areas such as the abdomen and buttocks. This is a non-invasive procedure without the surgery, pain or down time!

EMSCULPT is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment, designed specifically to reduce fat and build muscle.

*1 The FDA is the US Food & Drug Administration. It is similar to the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) in Australia. The reason it is significant is because for a device to be “FDA approved or FDA cleared” FDA experts will review clinical studies and manufacturer’s information to establish the safety and effectiveness of the device. EMSCULPT is FDA cleared for the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Multiple studies back the effectiveness of Emsculpt, with established results and real life case study proof. *1,2,3,4,5,6,7

EMSCULPT is available now at Burnside Cosmetic.


Watch here to see the how Emscuplt works for muscle gain and fat loss.

To achieve your ideal body contours, you don’t just want to slim down, you may want to improve tone and strengthen your core. EMSCULPT is the only procedure in the world that eliminates fat *1,2,3,4,5 and also builds muscle *1,2,3,4,5 simultaneously, without surgery.

The EMSCULPT is an alternative to surgical buttock procedures, offering a non-invasive buttock lifting! *6,7

In a typical EMSCULPT session, approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions are induced, something that is not achievable by voluntary muscle action. Additionally, it affects only motor neurons that are activated, while other neurons or tissues are not responsive to the current, and therefore stay unaffected. The contractions are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also breakdown fat. *1,2,3,4,5

EMSCULPT for muscle separation

Diastasis recti is a medical term that describes the separation of the abdominal muscles. This most commonly occurs during pregnancy, as the belly increases in size to accommodate a growing baby, which can stretch the abdominal musclesEMSCULPT offers the first non-surgical means that may improve this condition.

In a study conducted in USA *3 22 patients were evaluated 2 months after four 30-min treatments. Abdominal fat thickness was reduced on average by 18.6 % or 4.3 mm.

Abdominal muscle mass increased on average by 15.4 %, coupled with a 10.4 % average reduction in diastasis recti (the study also included patients who had not had children).

Waist circumference decreased on average by 1.4 inches.

EMSCULPT® is the first non-invasive treatment to go beyond the elimination of fat cells to strengthen and define muscles, with no surgery and no downtime. Approved for sale in Australia, the USA and Europe for the strengthening and toning of abdominal muscles, along with the buttocks and most recently arms and legs (supported by a regimented fitness routine).  The technology utilizes patented HIFEM® magnetic field energy and induces approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, which cannot be achieved voluntarily, to help target hard-to-tone areas.


Tested in seven independent studies*(see footer 1-7) utilizing established methods of evaluation, including MRI, CT, and Ultrasound, BTL EMSCULPT® demonstrated:

  • 19% average reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat *2,3,4
  • 16% average increase in muscle mass *4
  • 44mm average reduction in thickness of the subcutaneous abdominal fat layer *2
  • Average waist measurement sees a reduction of 4.4cm *5


  • The first and only HIFEM® technology to­ build muscle &­ burn fat
  • Multiple applicators for the treatment (abdomen, buttocks, arms -biceps and triceps, and calves)
  • 19 years of trusted BTL’s involvement in magnetic therapy
  • Emsculpt safety cleared for sale on the US and European market. In Australia – Product Emsculpt is entered in ARTG, ARTG number 316563.


EMSCULPT® is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and burn fat and the world’s first non-invasive buttock lifting procedure. It works by supramaximal contractions; the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme condition. It responds with a deep remodelling of its inner the structure that results in muscle building, tightening, toning and burning fat. *6,7

EMSCULPT® helps patients achieve slimmer and more athletic body contours, by reducing abdominal fat and simultaneously building the muscle foundations underneath the fat. *2,3,4 When applied to buttocks EMSCULPT® gives the patients a more lifted, athletic shape. *6,7

EMSCULPT® does not use a heating/cooling principle, so there are no risks of burns, scarring or swelling. The recommended treatment plan is four 30-minute treatment sessions over two weeks. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over six months. EMSCULPT® strengthens gluteal or abdominal muscles and burns fat, all while you relax, laying down.

Common Questions about This Treatment

EMSCULPT is the world’s only non-invasive procedure to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat.
It is the most recent technological advance which has revolutionalized the whole field of non-invasive
body shaping.

Firstly, EMSCULPT can or may help patients achieve slimmer and more atheltic body contours, by reducing
abdominal fat and simultaneously building the muscle foundations underneath the fat.
Secondly, when applied to buttocks EMSCULPT can give our patients a more lifted, athletic kind of buttocks. It is currently the only non-invasive buttock lifting procedure in the world.

EMSCULPT is the only procedure in the world that not only targets fat, but also simultaneously builds
your muscles. All the other technologies are good, but they only treat fat. EMSCULPT not only reduces fat but strengthens underlying muscles. Also, EMSCULPT
is not based on a heating/cooling principle, so there are no risks of burns, scarring or swelling.

Furthermore, none of the other technologies can give you a non-invasive buttock lift. Through
strengthening of all your gluteal muscles, EMSCULPT established a completely new category
of treatments – a non-invasive buttlift. A post treatment consultation is required and individual results may vary.

Fairly anyone can benefit from the EMSCULPT procedure. During the consultation, you will discuss
the exact expectations with the doctor who will help tailor a specific treatment plan for you.

The new EMSCULPT is FDA cleared, medical CE-marked, and represents the first innovative
technology that has shown in multiple studies to treat both muscle and fat. When you come in for
a consultation, the doctor will cover how body sculpting with EMSCULPT works and discuss the
unique safety profile in detail.

That is the best thing about the EMSCULPT. Patients say it is completely painless, the procedure
feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during the treatment. During your consultation, our staff will be more
than happy to let you experience the unrivaled comfort of the procedure.

Compared to other procedures, there is absolutely no downtime with the EMSCULPT. After the
procedure it feels like you had an amazing workout, and you can get back to work immediately
following the procedure.

This may vary depending on your age, physical condition, BMI and many other aspects. In general
patients begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported
two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the

Nothing in life lasts forever, but the clinical studies show that majority of patients are still better
in both muscle and fat even a year after their treatment series. However we recommend to book
another consultation a few months after your treatments to see if you may benefit from any additional
treatments. Keeping a healthy lifestyle is the key to maintain your results in longer term.

Yes, we have already treated several patients in our clinic and we are seeing great results!  There are multiple scientific studies published that
document in detail how EMSCULPT helps patients. See study references about EMSCULPT treatment under the EMSCULPT main treatment page.

Well it really depends. We need to see you to determine your medical condition, and areas you would
like to treat to recommend how many treatments are needed to get the result you are after. Are you
available to come in for a consultation so we can provide you an answer?
