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 EMSCULPT NEO Radio Frequency works
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 for EMSCULPT NEO?
You may be an excellent candidate for Emsculpt if you are troubled by excess fat and loose abdominal muscle tone. Likewise, if the backs of your arms are loose and saggy, this treatment can help you tighten and tone. The same goes for the thigh and buttocks area. The Emsculpt device has been designed to treat one or more of these areas in a quick session after which you don't need to alter your normal activities. In addition to wanting to sculpt your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, calves, or backs of your arms, you will be a good candidate for Emsculpt by understanding how this technology works and how long it will take to achieve your desired outcome. Ideally, you will be committed to a healthy lifestyle that will promote your body transformation and also support your long-term results.
The areas EMSCULPT NEO can be treated
EMSCULPT NEO can be applied over the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms & calves.
Does EMSCULPT NEO really work?
Yes! EMSCULPT NEO and the embedded high intensity magnetic field (HIFEM) technology has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies*. Moreover, 30 scientific publications make HIFEM the most intensively researched body contouring technology since its introduction in 2018.
How is EMSCULPT NEO procedure performed?
EMSCULPT NEO procedure 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 Long Will it Take to See Results Following the Emsculpt Neo Procedure?
The use of high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology in the patented Emsculpt device causes muscles to contract in such rapid succession that there is no time for them to fully relax during the session. This rapid contraction stimulates both muscle toning and fat cell death called apoptosis. Essentially, Emsculpt works very similarly to the most aggressive workout you could imagine. It outdoes the toughest workout you could do in a single session at the gym, so does get results more quickly than you could expect otherwise. Still, because the goal is to naturally tighten, tone, and sculpt, it takes time for your body to transform. Usually, we see noticeable changes start to appear two to four weeks after the completion of a treatment program. By six weeks post-treatment, you can expect remarkable changes to be visible.
How Many Treatments Will I Need Before I Start Seeing Results?
To get the best possible outcome from your Emsculpt Neo treatments, we may recommend that you come in for two to three sessions per week for at least two weeks. Depending on the extent of sculpting you want to achieve, we may recommend weekly sessions for as long as four weeks. The fact that we can customize Emsculpt Neo treatments is one more aspect of this technology that we appreciate! Once you have achieved your desired body contours through Emsculpt Neo, you can maintain them quite well with one to two touch-up sessions per year.
Can I Exercise After My Emsculpt Neo Treatment?
You do not have to change a thing about your normal exercise routine as you go through your Emsculpt treatment program! That is unless you don't work out at all. To get the best results from your body contouring treatments, it is beneficial to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and also to stay well-hydrated. These three habits can boost your outcome and also help to prolong your results with minimal upkeep.
Will Emsculpt Neo Cause Me to Lose Weight?
The Emsculpt Neo device targets fat cells using radiofrequency technology. The absorption of this energy into the fat cells causes them to die off. The nonviable fat cells get metabolized by the liver and flushed from the body. A series of Emsculpt Neo treatments can destroy up to 30 percent of the fat cells in the target area. That said, the goal of treatment is not to reduce your weight but to sculpt your body. We do not anticipate that you will notice a significant loss in weight after your treatment program. However, we do anticipate that your body will look leaner, firmer, and more contoured.
Is Emsculpt Neo Painful?
Your treatment sessions here at our Okatie, SC office should be quick and comfortable. You can expect to feel a warming sensation from the movement of your supramaximal muscles and the absorption of the radiofrequency energy into the layers of adipose tissue. This warming may get somewhat intense but should not hurt. The muscle contractions that occur during your treatment may also feel odd but not painful. These occur so deeply beneath the surface of your body that they may feel more like flutters or vibrations than the muscle contractions you feel when working out. After your session, your muscles may feel sore for a short time, but not so much so that you cannot work out or perform normal activities.
What is the protocol for EMSCULPT NEO?
Protocol for EMSCULPT NEO is usually four 30-minute treatments, scheduled 5-10 days apart.
How longit will take to see results following the EMSCULPT NEO procedure
Each patient’s results may vary but the best time to see the final results is in 3 months after the last treatment.
What is the downtime of EMSCULPT NEO?
There is no downtime with this procedure. You can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment.
