Treatment overview

EMSCULPT works by putting an applicator to the region of your body that you want to tone muscle and eliminate fat.

Once attached, the applicator deploys an electromagnetic field that affects muscle and fat by penetrating the skin and triggering almost 20,000 muscular contractions in a single 30-minute session.

Numerous studies and peer reviews have shown that these treatments decrease fat, increase muscle growth (muscle hypertrophy), and muscle fibers (muscle hyperplasia). On top of it all, the treatments are non-invasive and only require patients to lie down and relax!


EMSCULPT has been FDA cleared and scientifically shown to tone muscle and decrease fat in the following areas:

Abdomen (rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and obliques)

Buttocks (all gluteal muscles)

Triceps (upper arms)

Biceps (front of arms)

Thighs (quadriceps)

Hamstrings (back of legs)


Benefits of EMSCULPT

  • EMSCULPT has been scientifically shown to tone and strengthen the muscles
  • Treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive, with sessions lasting about 30 minutes
  • EMSCULPT results look natural and last months, assuming the patient continues an active and healthy lifestyle
  • EMSCULPT has a quick healing process with little to no downtime. EMSCULPT patients can also continue social activities as normal after treatment.
  • We tailor treatment plans to individual needs

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

  • A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free for all aesthetic treatments, including EMSCULPT. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

The Procedure

During your EMSCULPT appointment, we start by ensuring your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.

Our expert providers will then discuss a target area for proper placement of the applicator, which we will place on your body.

  • Next, the EMSCULPT device induces supra-maximal muscle contractions, which results in a rapid metabolic reaction. This tones and builds the muscle while reducing fat, all while leaving the surrounding areas of your body unaffected. These treatments last for about 30 minutes, after which you’ll be able to continue all activities as normal.

The Recovery

After completing an EMSCULPT treatment in our Vernon Hills office, you might feel some muscle soreness similar to what you’d feel after a hard workout.

  • This is normal and should subside shortly following the treatment.

    In the months following treatment, you can expect an average muscle growth between 15 and 20 percent with a significant reduction in fat. Usually, the best results are noticeable three months after treatment. You should also expect continued improvement for up to 12 months later.

Very knowledgeable staff and great environment! Best place I’ve ever attended. Wouldn’t trust anyone else, honestly.
-Denis Vachenko
Since I first met these incredible women (and Dr. Ritacca of course), over 7 years ago, I have felt confident that whatever my beauty objectives are, they’d execute them flawlessly. Wherever I am in this world, I make my way back to them because I trust them. They’re my “beauty team” and more importantly in these weird times, their energy and smiles brighten the gloomiest of days. Wouldn’t trade them for anything!!
-Sabrina Govan
Between Dawn and Jacque I have better skin now than I did when I was 20! I don’t know what I would do without them. They make me feel beautiful even without any makeup. Love you both so much.
