Body Sculpting

Body contouring is one of the most commonly sought-after treatments. We all want to look and feel good in our skin regardless of what we are wearing, so it is prevalent for someone to seek help when trying to achieve that ideal body shape.

The critical thing to remember is three fundamental pillars to body contouring must be considered if you hope to accomplish ideal results. Those pillars are fat reduction, muscle toning, and skin tightening. When you achieve one without the others, the results may feel lackluster and fall short of your aesthetic goals.


Emsculpt is a body contouring treatment that focuses on building muscle tone in targeted areas. It is unique in that most body contouring treatments focus on getting rid of unwanted fat, but focusing on unwanted fat deposits alone leaves a large category of people who need help building muscle tone without much support. Not to mention, putting the muscles to work helps get rid of those stubborn fat deposits along the way.

Its ability to tackle muscle tone and fat deposits is why Emsculpt has become such a popular treatment over the years.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt uses something known as high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology. While that might sound like a tricky bit of science jargon, it is actually pretty easy to understand. Everything that can be touched has an electric charge. When two electrically charged objects touch, they create an electromagnetic force.

That force can be used to trigger muscle contractions — enough contractions to mimic the effects of 20,000 squats, crunches, or bicep curls in a single 30-minute session. You could imagine the results that could be achieved with an effective treatment plan, but you don’t have to. There are plenty of before and after photos available in our gallery.

What Areas Can Emsculpt Treat?

Even the most challenging and stubborn areas can be treated with Emsculpt, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Triceps
  • Biceps
  • Calves

What Are the Benefits of Emsculpt?

Emsculpt has several advantages over traditional muscle building, weight loss or body contouring methods. Here are a few of the most significant:

  1. It is nonsurgical and noninvasive.
  2. It does not require anesthesia or local numbing.
  3. It is safe for all skin tones and types.
  4. It can produce optimal results in just four treatments
  5. It is an excellent option for people with busy schedules.


Viora is also a body contouring procedure, but while Emsculpt focuses on muscle tone and fat removal, Viora focuses on fat removal and skin tightening — an essential element that is often lost in the pursuit of fat reduction. In many cases, after getting rid of the fat, the body will not go back to its previous skin tightness. This causes a new range of skin ptosis, or skin sagging, issues.

Being proactive about tightening the skin as improvements are made to the amount of stubborn fat can save you a ton of time in the long run. Many people will have to go back to a practice for a while new set of treatments focuses on skin tightening.

How Does Viora Work?

Viora uses radiofrequency energy, a type of technology that has been tried and tested in medicine for decades. By emitting concentrated RF energy into a targeted area, the body will convert it into heat in the deeper layers of the tissue. This heat “damages” the fat cells and skin tissue without causing harm to any other part of the body.

When fat cells die, they are absorbed and excreted by the body, along with all the excess fat they held on to. When the skin becomes damaged, the body floods the area with a host of different healing factors and proteins. Collagen and elastin are two of the most bountiful — good news since collagen is the primary component responsible for skin laxity.

This ultimately leads to tighter and more elastic skin around tissue less riddled with stubborn fat deposits. The best part is that your body cannot produce more fat cells — so the progress that is achieved is permanent.

What Areas can Viora Treat?

Viora can treat many different areas of the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Chin (underside)
  • Hips
  • Jowls
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Thighs
  • Waist

Combining Emsculpt and Viora

An important indicator of an exemplary procedure combination is that the results are more than the sum of their parts. In the case of Emsculpt and Viora, tandem use is one of the most effective pairs available on the market.

Why Should I Combine Emsculpt and Viora?

Body contouring consists of three distinct pillars: fat reduction, skin tightening and muscle definition. This is also the order in which these pillars are typically prioritized — considering that Emsculpt and Viora are adept at providing fat reduction, one of the three pillars immediately tackled by two of the most successful treatments available on the market.

Skin tightening and muscle definition are often afterthoughts to the body contouring process, but they shouldn’t be. When most people think of their ideal figure, they don’t include sagging skin or a lack of muscle definition. They usually envision having skin pulled tautly around a chiseled abdomen, chest, legs, or arms. If you are looking for that picturesque figure, you must tackle all three body contouring pillars.

Are There Any Risks to Combining Procedures?

When performed by a professional like those staffed at Aesthetic Envy in Sacramento, the likelihood of any adverse side effect occurring is very rare. Each device is extraordinarily safe and comes with minimal risks when operated correctly. There is no additional risk assumed when combing the Emsculpt and Viora.

Emculpt NEO vs. Emsculpt/Viora

These results are very similar to what can be achieved with Emsculpt NEO, a machine that uses RF energy to accomplish all three pillars of body contouring on its own. At Aesthetic Envy, we combine Emsculpt with Viora instead of using Emsculpt NEO because we have found the results to be more effective for our patients.
