Dr. Annabelle Garcia with Sonterra Dermatology in San Antonio, TX is proud to offer area patients a new way to achieve a tighter figure without surgery. Even with the right diet and exercise program, some men and women still find it difficult to tighten and sculpt certain body parts and achieve the results they want. A noninvasive body contouring and skin tightening treatment, EMSCULPT allows patients to reach the next level through a dual sculpting process that burns and melts fat while increasing muscle. Compared to other nonsurgical body sculpting technologies on the market today, EMSCULPT is one of the only proven treatments to help San Antonio men and women simultaneously build muscle while burning fat.
EMSCULPT employs HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to force muscle contractions during the procedure. Designed to target two areas most people struggle with the most – the stomach and buttocks – the contractions that occur during an EMSCULPT treatment encourage the growth of new muscle fibers and protein strands, which decrease nearby fat cells. We invite you to call Sonterra Dermatology to learn more.

"Hands down one of the best physician offices I have had the pleasure of being a client to. I struggle with cyst-like issues and “HS”. They take care of me and make sure I’m comfortable, they are very knowledgeable of my condition and I believe that if you struggle with the same thing, do not be afraid to walk in here. Me and now my mother go here. Oh, and did I mention I only waited 5 minutes in the waiting room/patient room? Go here and don’t go anywhere else. 1000/10!"- S.C. / Google / Sep 18, 2020

Ideal Candidates for EMSCULPT
During your consultation, Dr. Garcia will discuss the EMSCULPT treatment and how it can possibly help you. This innovative treatment is ideal for patients who desire body contouring and are at a healthy weight. Unlike traditional liposuction where excess fat is removed, EMSCULPT takes your figure to the next level and focuses on sculpting and definition. It is important to set realistic expectations as to what results you can expect and help determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. EMSCULPT is also ideal for patients who want to avoid the downtime and scarring that is sometimes associated with surgery. It is beneficial for both men and women who have healthy skin tone and who are wanting to contour their stomach and/or buttocks for a more toned appearance.
What to Expect with EMSCULPT
EMSCULPT is performed inside our treatment room at Sonterra Dermatology. We will make sure you are comfortable and relaxed in a treatment chair, and we will explain each step of the treatment process in detail. An EMSCULPT session generally takes about 30 minutes to complete. The device is placed onto the desired treatment area and will gently be glided back and forth multiple times. The technology can be altered for different speeds, depending on the area size and desired outcomes. This process does not hurt. In fact, many patients remark that the procedure feels similar to an intense workout because of the muscle contraction that takes place. After your treatment, you may experience redness, some swelling, and soreness, but this generally subsides in a couple of days. We recommend holding off on strenuous activity for about 24 hours in order to let the treated areas heal. The great thing with each EMSCULPT session is that there is no downtime, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities the same day.
Anticipated Results from EMSCULPT
During your consultation with Dr. Garcia, a customized treatment plan will be designed to fit your aesthetic needs and body contouring goals. Maximum results for EMSCULPT are typically noticed after a series of treatments, and this will be discussed at your consult. This varies by patient. After the last treatment session, optimal results can be expected in around 2 – 4 weeks.
