Sentient Sculpt vs Emsculpt: Which One is Right For Me?

With so many treatment options available, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. Take Emsculpt Milwaukee and Sentient Sculpt. They can both target stubborn fat, but which one is right for you?


Let’s take a look at the differences between the two treatments. With this information, you are better able to make the best decision for you.

How Do Emsculpt and Sentient Sculpt Work?

EmSculpt is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to eliminate fat and build muscle at the same time. One treatment can be the equivalent of 20,000 crunches. Even if you like going to the gym, you aren’t doing that many crunches. Especially not in such a short period of time. It’s also pain-free and requires no downtime.


Sentient Sculpt, on the other hand, is used to treat loose skin, stubborn fat, and cellulite. It works by using targeted energy to destroy fat cells and the fibrous bands that lead to cellulite dimples. It can also stimulate collagen for tighter and healthier skin. It’s great for areas like the arms, thighs, hips, and stomach.

Number of Treatment Sessions

The number of treatment sessions for Emsculpt versus Sentient Sculpt can differ depending on what you’re looking for. With Emsculpt, patients typically need four sessions and then maintenance treatments to maintain.


With Sentient Sculpt, it can vary greatly depending on what you’re looking to achieve and what area/areas you want to target. Typically, most patients benefit from 2-4 3-4 treatment sessions per area.

How Long Do The Results of Sentient Sculpts and Emsculpt Last?

The results of Emsculpt show up 2-4 weeks after your final treatment.  If you exercise and stick to a healthy lifestyle, the muscle development will continue.  However, just like any muscle, if you stop using it, you will lose definition.  Patients that use Emsculpt on the abs find that their core is stronger and helps them work out smarter.  We always recommend continuing with healthy habits and get maintenance treatments to maintain best results.


The results of Sentient Sculpt take about three months to fully show and will continue to look great if you stick to a healthy lifestyle.  As with any treatment, nothing is considered permanent as your body continues to age, sage, loose elasticity, etc., but with Sculpt, you can prevent and even reverse loose skin, cellulite, and fat buildup.  We consider these treatments a “partnership” with our patients – we provide the treatment, but the patient must maintain good skin and health to optimize and extend results.
