Are you struggling with stubborn fat and untoned muscles in your abdomen, buttocks, arms, or calves? While diet and exercise can help, they don’t always do the job completely. That’s where Emsculpt Neo comes in. The treatment can tone your muscles and melt away fat with only a few treatment sessions.

But before you decide on Emsculpt treatment, let’s take a look at what exactly it is and eight things you should know about the procedure, the recovery process, and the results.

What Is Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt Neo is a relatively new FDA-approved device used to burn fat and build muscle mass. Through the use of high-intensity electromagnetic energy and radiofrequency energy, you can firm and tone your muscles, burn fat, and achieve a more sculpted look. The Emsculpt Neo procedure can be used to treat the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and calves.

What Is The Process Like?

Emsculpt Neo utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic and radiofrequency energy technology to cause deep muscle stimulation and melt the fat cells in the treatment area. A single Emsculpt session induces 20,000 muscle contractions. With the hypercontraction of the muscles and the use of radiofrequency energy, your fat melts away and the muscles become stronger and more toned.

Since the treatment does not require anesthesia, you can go back to your daily routine almost immediately after treatment. Typical appointments last between 20-40 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area and the results you’re looking to achieve.

Does It Hurt?

Since it is non-invasive, you will not experience any pain during the procedure. You may experience a pulling or tensing sensation as the muscles contract, but you shouldn’t feel any more discomfort than that.

How Does It Differ From CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting utilizes controlled cooling to destroy stubborn fat cells permanently and contour the body. However, Emsculpt focuses on contouring the body by stimulating and contracting the muscles and using radiofrequency energy to melt away fat cells.

How Is The Recovery?

Emsculpt Neo is a non-invasive procedure so no recovery time is required. You don’t need to do too much preparation prior to the procedure and the limitations after the treatment are minimal.

While some patients might experience slight soreness, it is less intense than what many people experience after traditional workouts. You can return to your daily activities after your session.

Are There Risks?

The only risks or side effects that come with Emsculpt Neo include temporary soreness, redness, swelling, and bruising, but beyond that, you shouldn’t need to worry too much about risks.

When Should You Expect Results?

Most patients need at least 2-4 sessions of Emsculpt Neo treatment and they will typically begin noticing visible results about 2-4 weeks after the final treatment session. The final results usually show up 2-4 months after the final session.

How Long Do The Results Last?

Like many other procedures, Emsculpt Neo does not offer permanent results. It can’t stop that natural aging process. The results typically last six months or more and you will need maintenance treatments to keep up the results.

On top of maintenance treatment, you can help to maintain your results by following a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and a healthy diet.
