What is EMSCULPT NEO?
EMSCULPT NEO is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that uses radiofrequency heating for fat reduction and high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM®) for muscle strengthening and toning in a 30-minute session. The end result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard product, for less time and less money. Best of all, EMSCULPT NEO has a broad patient appeal as it can treat patients up to BMI 35.
How does EMSCULPT NEO work?
EMSCULPT NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies. Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm up activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat. Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts 100% of the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workout. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. On average the muscle volume increases by 25%.
Who is the right candidate?
If you can benefit from less fat and more muscle, with a BMI of less than 35, the EMSCULPT NEO procedure may be a great fit.
What areas can be treated?
Abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms & calves.
Does it really work?
Yes! The high intensity magnetic field (HIFEM) technology has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies and 30 scientific publications. HIFEM is the most intensively researched body contouring technology since its introduction in 2018.
How is the procedure performed?
EMSCULPT NEO is simple and easy. There is no pre-preparation required for this procedure. You will lay down while the applicators are applied over the treatment area for 30 minutes. During the treatment you may feel intense yet tolerable muscle contractions along with heating sensation which is comparable to hot stone massage. Once the procedure is completed, you can immediately get back to your daily routine.
How many treatments and how often should treatment be done?
To achieve maximum results it is recommended that you do one treatment per week for four consecutive weeks, then additional treatments annually or every six months for maintenance.
What is the downtime?
There is no downtime with this procedure. You can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment.
What happens to the fat that is eliminated? Will the fat come back?
After the treatment, the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes. The rest is flushed out by the body. Studies show fat reduction is well maintained a year later.
Will I lose weight?
No, the procedure does not help with weight reduction. The therapy helps reduce your fat and build your muscles.
It is recommended to follow a healthy lifestyle, balanced diet and proper hydration for best results.
Is treatment painful?
Treatments may feel intense but should never be painful
How long does it take to see the final result?
Each patient’s results may vary but the best time to see the final results is in 3 months after the last treatment.
Before & After Pictures
This treatment requires a high level of body hydration. Drink ample amounts of water to improve the lymphatic drainage from your fat cell apoptosis. We will measure your hydration status before your appointment and if the numbers do not indicate adequate hydration we cannot move forward with treatment that date and you will be rescheduled.
If you are pregnant or might be pregnant, we cannot perform this treatment.
Certain implantable metal devices such as pacemakers prevent us from performing this treatment.
Maintain hydration status and move the body in some form of exercise for 20 minutes per day to facilitate the lymphatic drainage after fat cell apoptosis.
