What is Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt NEO is the first non-invasive treatment in the world that reduces fat and builds muscle simultaneously. Administered in 30-minute treatment sessions, Emsculpt NEO combines radiofrequency heating and HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to slim, tone and shape your body with zero downtime. Each session induces 20,000 contractions in the targeted muscle group, making it significantly more efficient than traditional exercise.

Emsculpt NEO is backed by 21 peer-reviewed clinical studies and publications. On average, patients in the studies gained 25% more muscle and saw a 30% reduction in fat in the treated areas.

How Does Emsculpt Neo Work?

Emsculpt NEO is powered by two synergistic technologies, radiofrequency (RF) and HIFEM.

RF energy produces a controlled heating effect inside the body, raising the temperature of fat cells beyond their threshold. This causes the fat cells to undergo apoptosis, the process of cell death. Over the subsequent weeks, the body naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fat volume.

While the RF is hard at work targeting fat, the HIFEM energy focuses on muscle. These electromagnetic waves induce muscle contractions far stronger than what regular exercise can achieve. These “supramaximal” contractions lead to a deep remodelling of the muscle’s inner structure, resulting in muscle growth and toning.

What are the Benefits of Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt NEO has rapidly become one of the most requested aesthetic treatments worldwide. Benefits include:

  • Dual-Action Treatment: Simultaneously targets fat cells and muscle tissue to provide visible results in less time.
  • Non-invasive and Non-surgical: Achieves a more sculpted physique without incisions, anaesthesia, needles or downtime.
  • Efficient and Convenient: Each 30-minute session is equivalent to performing thousands of crunches or squats.
  • Versatile: Suitable for various skin types and body areas, as well as a BMI up to 35.
  • FDA-Cleared: Rigorously tested and shown to be safe and effective for body contouring.
  • No Downtime: Allows you to resume daily activities immediately after treatment with no restrictions.

What Areas Can Be Treated with Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt NEO can be applied to 10 body areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Lateral abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Biceps
  • Triceps
  • Calves
  • Inner thighs
  • Front thighs
  • Back thighs
  • Saddlebags

What is the Difference Between Emsculpt Neo and Emsculpt?

Emsculpt NEO builds on the foundation set by its predecessor, Emsculpt. The original Emsculpt solely utilises HIFEM technology to induce muscle contractions and build muscle tissue. Emsculpt NEO integrates both radiofrequency and HIFEM technology to burn fat and build muscle simultaneously.

Due to its combined technologies, Emsculpt NEO delivers more comprehensive results in fewer sessions than Emsculpt. Emsculpt increases muscle mass by 16% on average, while Emsculpt NEO has been shown to increase muscle mass by 25% on average. Emsculpt NEO is also suitable for a wider range of patients, including individuals with a BMI up to 35.

What is the Difference Between Emsculpt Neo and Coolsculpting?

Emsculpt NEO and CoolSculpting both broke new ground in non-surgical body contouring. While they share a non-invasive approach and minimal downtime, there are notable differences between these technologies:

  • Mechanism of Action: Emsculpt NEO combines radiofrequency energy to reduce fat and HIFEM technology to build and tone muscle. CoolSculpting employs cryolipolysis, the process of freezing and destroying fat cells.
  • Treatment Benefits: Emsculpt NEO targets fat and muscle simultaneously in a single treatment. CoolSculpting focuses on fat reduction.
  • Treatment Areas: Emsculpt NEO’s applicators are designed for larger areas, such as the abdomen and thighs. CoolSculpting has applicators that can be applied to smaller areas, such as under the chin.
  • Treatment Comfort: Emsculpt NEO feels more active due to the muscle contractions but typically involves minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. Due to the cooling and post-treatment massage, CoolSculpting involves more intense sensations during the treatment, as well as possible swelling and redness post-treatment.

Both Emsculpt NEO and CoolSculpting are powerful treatments in their own right. The choice between them depends on your body structures and goals.

Who is a Candidate for Emsculpt Neo?

If you could benefit from less fat and more muscle, Emsculpt NEO may be a great fit for you. Women or men who meet the following requirements can be considered for this treatment:

  • Interested in a non-invasive body contouring solution
  • Close to ideal weight but want to address specific areas of concern
  • Seeking sculpting and toning rather than significant weight loss
  • Have a BMI of up to 35
  • Not currently pregnant or nursing
  • Have no medical devices or implants in the treatment area
  • In good general health with no chronic medical conditions

A consultation at Aesthetic Polyclinic will provide personalised guidance on whether this treatment aligns with your needs and goals.

What is the Emsculpt Neo Treatment Process?

You will meet with an Emsculpt NEO provider during a one-on-one consultation. Your provider will assess your body, discuss your aesthetic goals and craft a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

During your treatment, you will be comfortably positioned, and the Emsculpt NEO applicator will be placed on the target area. The device will then deliver synchronised radiofrequency and HIFEM energies, working to heat the subcutaneous fat cells and stimulate muscle contractions. Each session lasts 30 minutes.

Patients often describe the treatment sensation as a series of intense muscle contractions, similar to what you might feel during a vigorous workout, but without the effort. The heating from the radiofrequency produces a warm sensation that most people find comfortable. The device’s intensity can be adjusted during your session to ensure you remain comfortable while still achieving effective results.

What is the Downtime and Recovery After Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt NEO is popular not only for its dual-action approach to body contouring but also for the ease and convenience of the treatment. You can immediately resume your daily activities following a session. Whether you’re returning to work, running errands or heading out to a social engagement, you can continue your day with no restrictions.

You may feel a sensation akin to the muscle soreness experienced after an intense workout. This is a testament to the muscle contractions induced during the session and typically subsides within a day or two.

How Many Emsculpt Neo Sessions are Usually Needed?

The standard Emsculpt NEO protocol includes four 30-minute treatments scheduled five to 10 days apart. After your initial series of sessions is complete, periodic maintenance sessions can further enhance and prolong your results.

What Results Can Be Achieved with Emsculpt Neo?

After completing the recommended treatment protocol of four 30-minute sessions, clinical studies have shown that, on average, Emsculpt NEO can generate a reduction in body fat of up to 30% and an increase in muscle mass by approximately 25%. The treatment enhances the contour, firmness and strength of the targeted area.

You may start to see and feel results shortly after the treatments. Optimal results are typically observed 90 days after the final session and can continue improving for several more weeks.

Your Emsculpt NEO results can last indefinitely when coupled with a healthy lifestyle. Following a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water and engaging in regular physical activity helps sustain the muscle tone and contouring benefits achieved during your sessions.

Can I Combine Emsculpt Neo with Any Other Treatments?
