EmSculpt Neo Q & A


What is EmSculpt Neo? 


EmSculpt Neo is newer version of the original EmSculpt which is a non-invasive body-sculpting treatment that helps build muscle and support patients in their journey to obtain a slimmer and more toned body. It does this using high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM™) energy. This causes the muscles in the target area to contract at a rate and intensity that can’t be achieved during an ordinary workout. Studies estimate that the muscles are tightened, toned, and strengthened equivalent to 20,000 manual squats or crunches in just one EmSculpt Neo session. This triggers an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers, improving muscle strength and tone rapidly.  

Burn Fat by 30%   Build Muscle by 25%

EmSculpt Neo combines radio-frequency and electromagnetic technology into a single highly effective treatment. Patients can expect up to 30% of fat reduction: superficial fat and even visceral fat (body fat stored within the abdominal cavity around organs that cannot be removed by cosmetic surgery), up to 25% of muscle building and skin tightening. EmSculpt Neo is the only non-invasive body shaping treatment that combines two energies to eliminate fat and build muscles in each 30-minute session.

How does EmSculpt Neo work?

EmSculpt Neo works by combining the two different types of energy to produce superior results. Firstly, using the same technique as Emsculpt - high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM™) energy – EmSculpt Neo causes rapid muscle contractions that build muscle fibers to improve strength and tone.

At the same time, radiofrequency (RF) energy raises muscle temperature by several degrees in order to prepare them for contraction – in the same way, that you would ordinarily perform a warmup exercise ahead of any sort of significant physical exertion. The temperature of fat cells is also increased, and within just a few minutes, the temperature in these fat cells rises enough to break them down, enabling them to be metabolized by the body and eliminated through the usual waste methods. This is permanent fat removal, meaning that it is possible to maintain the results of your treatment indefinitely provided you don’t start to gain weight.

Key differences between EmSculpt and EmSculpt Neo

  • As a result of this combination of techniques, EmSculpt Neo can increase muscle mass by a whopping 25% rather than the 16% achieved through conventional EmSculpt.
  • RF energy causes up to 30% fat burning during each treatment, enhancing the effects of EmSculpt Neo.
  • Fat loss as a result of EmSculpt Neo is permanent and can be sustained indefinitely.
