What Is Emsculpt NEO?

Emsculpt NEO is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment for burning fat and increasing muscle tone. The FDA-approved treatment features a special device that can simultaneously destroy fat cells and encourage impressive muscle growth. 

How Does Emsculpt NEO Work?

Emsculpt NEO works primarily with radiofrequency heating and focused high-intensity electromagnetic waves. During the treatment, the radiofrequency energy heats and destroys fat cells. Meanwhile, electromagnetic waves stimulate the muscles at a higher level of intensity than you could achieve from any workout. The muscles contract at an extremely high rate, which promotes major growth. The result of the treatment is a leaner, more muscular physique.

Am I a Candidate for Emsculpt NEO?

Men and women looking for a safe, non-surgical way to improve their physique could be candidates for Emsculpt NEO. Ideal candidates for the treatment should meet the following requirements:

  • Have realistic expectations for the treatment
  • Are within 30 pounds of your ideal weight
  • Have a BMI of 35 or lower
  • Are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Want to increase muscle tone and strength in a certain area of your body
  • Want to lose fat in a certain area of your body
  • Do not have a pacemaker, IUD, or any other metal implants

How Is the Emsculpt NEO Treatment Performed?

When the treatment begins, you will lie back, and the Emsculpt NEO device will be placed on the area of your body that you’re targeting. As the device applies radiofrequency energy to your body, your muscle temperature will rise slightly, and you’ll feel a warming sensation. This process will continue for several minutes, gradually heating up and destroying the fat cells in the targeted area.

Next, the Emsculpt NEO device will begin using electromagnetic energy to contract the muscles in the area powerfully. This shouldn’t cause any pain, but it will be an intense feeling. These contractions will put stress on your muscles and stimulate growth. In total, the Emsculpt NEO treatment will take approximately 30 minutes. 

Other than some soreness, there will be no recovery period or downtime. We recommend receiving two or three of these treatments per week for optimal results for two to four weeks.

Where Can Emsculpt NEO Be Done on the Body?

Emsculpt NEO is FDA-approved to burn fat and tone muscles in four major sections of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Legs

What happens to the fat during Emsculpt NEO?

During Emsculpt NEO treatment, the radiofrequency energy heats the fat cells, which destroys them. Your body can then flush away the dead cells.

Will I lose weight with Emsculpt NEO?

Yes. Although weight loss isn’t the main purpose of Emsculpt NEO, the treatment should reduce your weight by burning fat cells.

How does Emsculpt NEO compare to liposuction or other non-invasive treatments?

While liposuction is exclusively used for removing fat, Emsculpt NEO focuses on both burning fat and growing muscle. Emsculpt NEO is also faster and less invasive, but liposuction provides longer-lasting results.

Does Emsculpt NEO work only for muscle building?

No. In addition to toning and strengthening your muscles, Emsculpt NEO removes fat in the targeted area of your body.
