There has been talk of different body-contouring treatments for years now—CoolSculpting being one of the most popular. And while there's nothing wrong with leaving your beautiful body as is, there's equally no shame in researching treatments that will help you feel good in your own skin.

The newest (and arguably coolest) of the bunch is BTL Emsculpt, a body-contouring treatment that is not only noninvasive but completely nonthermal, non-ionizing, and non-radiating. So it's not cold like CoolSculpting or hot like SculpSure. In fact, according to Bruce E. Katz, MD, the director at Juva Skin & Laser Center, you won't feel much of anything during the treatment. The difference here has to do with both your fat cells and muscles—previously, these contouring treatments could only work on your fat cells, but now, BTL's Emsculpt has innovated technology to work your muscles as well. All in one treatment.

Still, it's hard sometimes to wrap your mind around these types of things—what they actually do, what you'll feel, and what type of results you should expect. Especially at $3000 to $4000 a pop for the full treatment (depending on the physician). To break it all down, we had Katz answer all of the FAQs. Below, find everything you need to know about this new technology and whether or not it is right for you.
