  • Lisa Rinna and Erika Girardi got Emsculpt together on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

  • Lisa loves Emsculpt and has gotten the treatment done multiple times since 2019.

  • Emsculpt is a noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that promises to tighten and firm areas of the body.

The ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returned to Bravo after a short hiatus (finally!!!), and cast member Lisa Rinna, 56, made the new episode instantly memorable by letting the cameras in during an Emsculpt session on her butt.

She joined castmate Erika Girardi, 48, who got the Emsculpt done to her abs. Erika was getting the muscle-toning treatment done as part of her preparation for her debut as Roxie Hart in the famous musical Chicago on Broadway, a role that Lisa has also had.

Apparently, this isn't the first time Lisa has gotten Emsculpt. According to Daily Mail, she shared in September 2019 that she'd had it done four times already–and was over the moon with the results. "I love it. My body's morphing into a 21-year-old's body, just saying. It's my fourth time. I'm obsessed with it," she told the publication.

So, what exactly is Emsculpt?

It's a noninvasive, FDA-cleared, no-risk treatment that promises to tighten and firm specific areas of the body by upping muscle mass.

Emsculpt works by strapping on to a machine that emits high-intensity electromagnetic pulses to force muscular contractions—the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes—thus strengthening muscle fibers in a previously impossible amount of time. Clinical research shows an average 19 percent increase in muscle thickness six to nine months post-treatment. It's pricey, though, costing around $4,000 for 4 sessions.

But does Emsculpt really work, and is it worth the investment?

Marnie Nussbaum, MD, a dermatologist in New York City, previously told Women's Health, that yep, the hefty price tag is #worthit. "I see about five patients per day, and none have had any complaints," she said. "Half notice an immediate effect after one treatment, but 84 percent report a significant difference one month after completing the series; 90 percent, three months after."

Former Women's Health editor Marissa Gainsburg also tried out Emsculpt for herself and was happy with the results. "My stomach didn’t look much different after my first session, but it felt harder when I poked it. At the gym after my second treatment, I swear my torso was sturdier during rows and lunges. After the third visit, I could hold planks for two straight minutes," she said. "Now, one month after my final sesh, I’ve noticed a slightly slimmer waist and little lines starting to carve around my abs. And my doughnut, though still there, looks less pronounced, especially from the side. I’m far from a six-pack, but I’m not disappointed."
