A: Schedule a free consultation

Noninvasive body contouring is the fastest growing area of cosmetic dermatology to tighten skin, treat fat and improve muscle tone. With so many devices on the market and several different technologies it can be diffiuclt to determine your best option. We have looked at the research and tried the different technologies to bring the best in class treatments to our patients. With more than 1 device and multiple technologies we provide a customized treatment plan to provide the best value for each patient. 

Q: Which body contouring technology is best?

A: Combinaton of RF and EMS

The ideal body contouring procedure would provide best in class results with the fewest treatments and no downtime or side effects. Based on these factors, we believe the best treatments combine RF (radiofrequency) and EMS (electrical muscle stimulation). Emsculpt Neo combines RF and a form of EMS called HIFEM to produce synergistic results, while EvolveX Transfrom uses RF and thier own form of EMS. We are not aware of any direct head to head studies comparing devices but studies do show RF and EMS/HIFEM produce the highest percentage of fat loss and muscle growth. There are also fewer complications with RF and EMS/HIFEM compared to other technologies. 

 

Q: Emsculpt Neo vs Coolsculpting - which is best?

A: Based on studies, Emsculpt Neo gives the best results

CoolSculpting is a well know and effective treatment to reduce fat, through a process called cryolipolysis. The CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling of a portion of the fat cells under your skin to target and freeze these cells. Much like RF technology, the fat cells ultimately die and are eventually “absorbed” by the body’s lymphatic system. Studies show Complications include pain, redness and in rare cases paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (overgrowth of fatty tissue).

Emsculpt Neo works by utilizing High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HIFEM) to induce supra-maximal muscle contractions. These contractions recruit 90-95% of the available muscle fibers vs 20-30% for a maximum contraction under normal conditions. With these supra-max muscle contractions, a 30-minute abdominal treatment is equivalent of performing 20,000 crunches. Complications are minimal with the most common being skin redness.

 

In addition to HIFEM, Emsculpt Neo utilties radiofrqeuency to heat up and destroy fat, tighten skin and warm the muscles in increase blood flow, aid muscle recovery and provide a more efficient "work-out." The increased muscle tone also helps to burn fat long term by raising the body's metabolic rate. 

 

Studies show the comination of RF and HIFEM produce better overall results compared to Coolsculpting. 30 sceintific publications make HIFEM the most researched body contouring technology with an average of 25% muscle growth and 30% less fat. The observed results are equivalent to a 12-16 week excercise program.

 

Coolculpting studies show a reduction of fat up to 20-25% with no change to muscle growth. Coolsculpting results also take longer to show up and may not last as long. 

 

The bottom line is that Emsculpt Neo produce more fat loss with fewer complications with the added benefit of increasing muscle tone. Not only does the improved muscle tone help overall appearance but it may also help results last longer by rasing the body's metabolic needs. 

Q: Emsculpt Neo vs EvolveX Transform - what are the differences?

A: Emsculpt Neo is the more proven, studied device. EvolveX Transform is the newest body contouring device utilizing RF and EMS.

______________________________________________________________

 

There are currently 5 leading technologies: cryolipolysis, radiofrequency, high-intensity focused ultrasound, laser therapy and Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). 

It's a noninvasive method of lipolysis that uses laser energy to heat and destroy fat cells. The treatment's high temperatures can cause the fat cells to die. The body's lymphatic system gets rid of the dead fat cells within the period of approximately 12 weeks after the procedure.
