Is your tummy, thighs, upper arms, neck, and love handles becoming problem areas for fat? These common areas can be tough to shake fat from, even with regular exercise and healthy eating. There are surgical issues to help reduce the fat but many feel like these options are a little drastic for a relatively small issue.
Non-surgical fat reduction procedure aimed at people who want to get rid of stubborn areas of fat. Here at Pura Vida Medspa & Cosmetic Laser Center we offer EmSculpt.

How Does Non-surgical Fat Reduction Work?
Non-surgical fat reduction treatment uses technology like heat, cooling lasers and ultrasound to penetrate the targeted subcutaneous adipose tissue. The technology used causes fat cells to implode, leaving the skin, blood vessels and connective tissue intact. During the treatment, tissue and fat cells are sucked in a vacuum in the applicator, essentially melting away.
Unlike liposuction, we use non-invasive procedures which means there are no incisions, minimal swelling and pain, and much less recovery time in comparison to other procedures. There is very little pre-procedure preparation, and you will be able to return quickly back to your day-to-day activities.
Who We Recommend Non-Surgical Fat Reduction For
We recommend non-surgical fat reduction for people whose weight loss has plateaued. It is also ideal if you have a particular problem area that dieting and exercise doesn’t appear to be helping. The ideal candidate should be healthy with a BMI of 30 or less with a small amount of stubborn fat in the stomach, buttocks, love handles or thighs.
Non-surgical fat removal is not suitable for those looking to lose a significant amount of fat. Both procedures we offer are designed to be used as a complementary treatment alongside a healthy diet and exercise. We recommend these non-invasive procedures be used alongside other traditional fat-loss methods.
How We Perform Fat Reduction and Muscle Toning at Pura Vida Medspa & Cosmetic Laser Center
Dieting and exercise can only take you so far if you want to reduce fat and tone your muscles. Our effective non-surgical fat removal and muscle toning treatments can offer effective procedures with minimal pain and downtime.
There are lots of treatments on the market, but we offer EmSculpt. This advanced procedure is a fantastic way of losing fat and sculpting the body without going under the knife. While liposuction quickly eliminates fat deposits, the procedure requires lots of downtime and can leave scarring on the body. Fat freezing also neglects muscle enhancement and is difficult to apply on specific areas of the body like the calve muscles.
EmSculpt is a cutting-edge procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy channeled through large paddles to stimulate supramaximal muscle contractions in your targeted muscle groups.
EmSculpt is a breakthrough non-surgical procedure that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle for a strong, toned body. It’s also FDA-approved to lift and firm the buttocks, making it a quicker and virtually painless alternative to a surgical butt lift or augmentation. We can either reduce the fat layer and tone the muscle, or just tone the muscle, depending on your preferences.
The involuntary contractions are induced at a rate of approximately 20,000 contractions per 30 minutes–that’s like doing 20,000 crunches or squats in half an hour! By signaling your muscles to use more energy, you’re able to target local fat stores in your problem area and see the fat melt away.
Why Choose Pura Vida Medspa & Cosmetic Laser Center for Fat Reduction
We know the world of body transformations, even surgical, can be daunting. That is why our highly trained team of medical staff will consult with you to ensure you can enjoy a detailed, custom treatment plan. This includes product and service recommendations, so you can feel confident that you will get the best treatment when you visit the Fulton-based Pura Vida Medspa & Cosmetic Laser Center.
Before & Afters
EmSculpt contracts 90% of your muscles in comparison to the 20% to 30% that you can tone up during a gym session. Our non-surgical fat removal treatments will allow you to lose weight and tone up muscle mass quickly and effectively.
After 4-6 weeks post-treatment, you should start to notice a significant visible improvement to the areas that have been treated, with full results noticeable after 6 months. After just 4 procedures, you should enjoy at least 6 months of muscle mass build-up.
If you use non-surgical fat removal on your buttocks you will notice a lifting effect as well as a more sculpted area. These treatments can also help men and women achieve a six-pack effect, more sculpted biceps and strengthen thigh muscles.
What to Expect From Your EmSculpt Fat Reduction and Muscle Toning Treatment
Before the EmSculpt procedure, you may be asked to shave the targeted area. At our comfortable offices, we will place paddles on the area being treated. You will feel the muscles contracting straight away. The power can be adjusted, depending on how much you can handle.
Each EmSculpt treatment will last between 20 and 30 minutes, and it’s typically recommended that you undergo at least four treatments over a 2-week period. The paddles can be used on multiple areas in a single session, with a maximum of three areas treated in one day. Depending on the area or the desired results, between 4 and 5 sessions are generally recommended.
Recovery and Aftercare
After your final non-surgical fat removal session, you can expect to see results in about 2 – 4 weeks. One of the major benefits of this weight loss treatment is the lack of downtime. You’ll be able to return to your regular daily activities quickly following your session. You might experience slight soreness, swelling, or redness in the targeted areas, but these side effects will start to subside after a few days.
In the days following the fat reduction and muscle toning procedure, it’s important to avoid exposure to high temperatures. This includes saunas, hot showers, or baths. Make sure to keep your body hydrated and protect your skin from direct sunlight for a few days after your treatment. Other than these considerations, you can generally return to your normal routine almost immediately after the procedure.
The average cost of a fat removal treatment regimen is around $3,125. On average, a single treatment is $750-$1000, and four sessions are recommended for optimal outcomes. Get in touch with us today and we will be happy to offer a price bespoke to your consultation and procedure.
At Pura Vida Medspa & Cosmetic Laser Center, we offer a range of non-invasive procedures to help you achieve your body goals.

This procedure needs next to no downtime, the results and immediate and can be improved over time!
Non-surgical fat removal will have better and more long-lasting results when you are hydrated. The fastest and most effective way to get rehydrated is by having fluids intravenously.

Does PuraVida MedSpa & Cosmetic Laser Center offer muscle sculpting?
Yes, we do. EmSculpt is a non-invasive procedure that induces powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary actions. When muscle tissue is exposed to these strong contractions, it adapts and responds, resulting in muscle building and body sculpting. The deep remodeling of the inner structure is part of the EmSculpt treatment.
Do fat cells grow back after using EmSculpt?
No, EmSculpt triggers the death of fat cells by inducing high-frequency electromagnetic waves, leading to apoptosis or cell death. This process means the fat cells will be metabolically eliminated by the body. Once fat cells have been destroyed, they do not regenerate.
Is non-surgical reduction the same as liposuction?
No, liposuction is a surgical procedure, while EmSculpt is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. EmSculpt is less invasive as it requires no cutting, stitching, or anesthesia. It also necessitates far less recovery time than liposuction, which often requires sedation.
How do I maintain my look after a non-surgical fat removal treatment?
Although the same fat cells will not regenerate, you will need to put in some effort to maintain your post-treatment appearance.
Maintaining a well-balanced diet that’s high in vital nutrients and low in saturated fat is essential for preventing new fat cells from forming. Stay hydrated as it helps flush out metabolized fat cells. We recommend drinking at least 8 oz. glasses of water a day. Regular exercise, focusing on both cardio and muscle-building activities, can help strengthen and maintain the treated areas.
Does the EmSculpt fat removal procedure hurt?
No, the EmSculpt procedure does not cause pain or discomfort. Patients usually report feeling a pulling sensation or a sensation of intense muscle contractions. Our expert team will fully control the treatment intensity, ensuring that you’re always treated at a level comfortable for you. You can start with a low intensity and gradually increase it over subsequent sessions. It’s much less painful than surgical alternatives.
