At the Dr Preema London Clinic here in the heart of London’s Marylebone, we offer a radical new treatment to both burn fat and to tone and build muscle for a more slender, svelte and sexy body. The treatment is called EMSCULPT® and has been developed by leading aesthetic device brand, BTL Aesthetics.

As EMSCULPT is relatively new to the world of body sculpting, we have found that many patients have questions about the treatment and the results that can be achieved. Therefore, we have listed below some frequently asked questions to explain fully how this treatment is becoming one of the most sought after in the UK, so you can make an informed decision as to whether it’s right for you.

What is EMSCULPT®?

EMSCULPT is the only device which can build muscle and burn fat at the same time. EMSCULPT® also creates the world’s first non-invasive butt lift procedure and is superb for sculpting abs and increasing muscle mass.

EMSCULPT is clinically-proven and a safe, non-surgical, in-clinic treatment performed by Dr Preema and her team, one of the first in the UK to source and provide this technology in at our clinic here in central London.

How does EMSCULPT work?

EMSCULPT® utilises High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology (HIFEM®) to induce supramaximal muscle contractions, not achievable through voluntary contractions alone. When exposed to these contractions, the muscles are forced to adapt and respond with a deep remodelling of the inner tissue structures that results in muscle building as well as fat burning.

Am I suitable for EMSCULPT?

Emsculpt is suitable for almost everyone.

If you are in good shape and want to dissolve some stubborn fat as well as add more definition to your abs, bum and legs, EMSCULPT might be just the treatment you’re looking for. EMSCULPT may not be suitable for those who have a large amount of visceral fat, but more for those with small areas of stubborn, subcutaneous (pinchable) fat – for this, we look at CoolSculpting.

Our team will examine your individual concern as well as check your medical history, at a no obligation consultation prior to treatment, to ascertain whether EMSCULPT will be an effective treatment for you.

What happens during an EMSCULPT treatment?

Whilst you lay back and relax, one of our leading aestheticians will place a large flat paddle to the area of concern. An appropriate setting will be selected and the sensation of strong muscular contractions will be experienced. This ‘tensing’ of the muscles can be held for seconds at a time, interspersed with a relaxing tapping sensation.

Once the treatment has finished, you’ll be able to return to your daily activities with no discomfort or downtime.

Does EMSCULPT hurt?

EMSCULPT can be a little uncomfortable, depending on your own threshold, but is not painful and feels like an intensive workout. We will manage any discomfort by adjusting the power settings appropriately. As you become more used to the procedure and you know what to expect, each session will become more comfortable.

How long does an EMSCULPT treatment take?

Depending on the area to be treated, a typical treatment takes around 30 minutes and a standard course of 4 sessions is usually required for optimum results. We build your treatment protocol around your life; you can even come in during your lunch break for a session with us.

Do I need to do anything before or after a treatment with EMSCULPT?

You don’t have to do anything  in preparation for your EMSCULPT treatment and there is no downtime or side-effects. It’s a workout without the sweat.

If you go to the gym, we only ask that you refrain from training the day before and the day after your treatments, so that your muscles can relax between treatments.

When will I see results?

You will begin to feel tangible results immediately after your EMSCULPT treatment and full results are usually seen six to eight weeks after your final session. These results will continue to improve for several weeks afterwards.

As EMSCULPT builds muscle mass, results are longer-lasting. However, it is important to continue the good work that EMSCULPT has done for your body, with a healthy lifestyle to maintain your new, toned physique. Top up treatments can be offered if you need them, later on.

Clinical studies have shown that results in muscle growth and fat loss have lasted even a year after treatment; independent studies will be out soon to discuss this in further detail.


EMSCULPT has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy in seven different independent US based, multi-centre studies using the most reputable scientific methods (MRI, CT, US, and Histology).

How much does EMSCULPT cost?

Each patient at Dr Preema London is different. We will need to see your body composition, the areas you wish to treat and calculate how many treatments you will need to get the benefits.

Book an Emsculpt consultation and come in to discuss your treatment and we can provide you with a solid answer, with absolutely no obligation to continue.

How many EMSCULPT treatments will I need?

Many patients will notice increased muscle tone after one treatment with EMSCULPT. However, a minimum of four sessions completed in two weeks should be taken to give you the best possible results.

To achieve a tighter and more toned silhouette, EMSCULPT could be your new hero to obtain results that no gym class will achieve. Dr Preema is finding her patients experience some amazing results with this innovative, dual-action treatment. If you are looking for a tighter, more defined behind, slimmer, firmer thighs and that dream set of abs, why not try EMSCULPT® and see the difference, without sweating it out in the gym 7 days a week.
