Why Emsculpt Neo?
Emsculpt Neo is unique compared to other non-surgical body sculpting treatments because it both builds muscle and burns fat in one non-invasive treatment. Emsculpt Neo treatment sessions can be completed in just 30 minutes and deliver highly effective body contouring results with no downtime.
How Does Emsculpt Neo Work?
Emsculpt Neo works by stimulating tissue using radiofrequency (RF) energy and High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy simultaneously. This generates involuntary muscle contractions in the treatment area, building muscle more effectively and efficiently than traditional exercise can. These muscle contractions occur in the skeletal muscle fibers, which is not possible through a normal exercise routine.
At the same time, the stimulated muscle contractions lead to lipolysis, or fat reduction. RF energy also heats fat cells to a temperature that kills off a percentage of cells, helping to burn fat both through intense muscle contractions and direct fat burning energy. Despite this powerful RF and HIFEM technology, the surrounding cells, such as skin cells, are not damaged through the treatment.
Am I A Good Candidate For Emsculpt Neo?
Most patients who wish to tone and sculpt the abdomen, buttocks, arms, or calves with a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure are good candidates for Emsculpt Neo. Because Emsculpt Neo is not a weight loss procedure, it is only recommended for those who are at or near a healthy weight and follow a healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet and regular exercise.
Those who have metal prosthetics in the body should not undergo Emsculpt Neo treatment. Before your procedure, Dr. Ashruf will review your health history and goals for the treatment through a thorough consultation.
The Emsculpt Neo Procedure
During your Emsculpt Neo procedure, a large applicator is placed on the treatment area. As RF energy is administered, you will notice a warming sensation similar to a hot stone massage. HIFEM then stimulates rapid muscle contractions. This process is not painful, though many patients report that it produces a tingling or tickling sensation.
No anesthetic is required as the process is pain-free. Emsculpt Neo treatment can be completed in 30 minutes. Most patients have two treatment sessions per week over the course of two weeks. For most, it is recommended to repeat this process about every three to four months to maintain your results.
Recovery After Emsculpt Neo
There is no downtime required after Emsculpt Neo. Many consider this a “lunchtime procedure” that you could complete over the course of your lunch break and return to your normal routine immediately after if you choose. Following Emsculpt Neo treatment, you will likely notice some soreness in the treated muscles similar to what you would feel the day after an intense workout.
After you receive the recommended four sessions of Emsculpt Neo treatment, you will notice increased muscle tone and reduced fat. The best results are typically visible at about three months after the treatment, when the body has had time to adequately metabolize the damaged fat cells and build muscle mass. Following this period, you can return for additional Emsculpt Neo body contouring sessions if you choose.

Does Emsculpt Neo actually work?
Emsculpt Neo has been shown through seven clinical tests to be successful at building muscle and burning fat - more effectively than any other body contouring device available.
How long does Emsculpt Neo last?
Your results from Emsculpt Neo will last for as long as you maintain them. Make sure to live a healthy lifestyle with good diet and exercise.
How long does it take for Emsculpt Neo to work?
You’ll begin to see results emerge around 2 weeks after your last treatment. However, each patient is unique so you may see results sooner or later than 2 weeks.
Is Emsculpt Neo better than CoolSculpting?
Emsculpt Neo and CoolSculpting accomplish different goals. If you want permanent reduction in fat without building muscle, then CoolSculpting is a good option. Emsculpt, on the other hand, is best for building muscle and burning fat simultaNeously.
Is Emsculpt Neo permanent?
Emsculpt Neo is not permanent – rather you’ll maintain your results by eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise. If you’re looking for permanent fat reduction, CoolSculpting may be a better option.
Does Emsculpt Neo tighten skin?
Emsculpt Neo does not tighten loose skin. If you’ve lost significant weight and have leftover, lax skin, you may need a surgical lift procedure.
How many sessions of Emsculpt Neo do you need?
Most patients undergo a package of 4 treatments spaced one week apart. However, this can vary based on your goals and needs. Once your initial treatment package is complete, you may benefit from a maintenance treatment every 3-6 months.
How do you maximize Emsculpt Neo results?
This can depend on your goals, but undergoing regular maintenance sessions beyond your initial treatment package can help you consistently build and improve your results. Along with this, make sure to eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise.
What do I do after Emsculpt Neo?
There are no physical restrictions after Emsculpt Neo, and you can return to your regular schedule right away. You may experience some soreness similar to an intensive exercise, but this subsides within a few days.
Do you lose weight with Emsculpt Neo?
You may notice some minor weight fluctuations after Emsculpt Neo as your body composition changes. However, Emsculpt Neo should not be considered a way to lose weight.
