Dr Ashruf’s center in Hanover, MD is the premier emsuite and HIFEM center for Emsculpt NEO and Emsella– and the first and ONLY in Maryland to offer the Emsculpt NEO, with the HIFEM technology in conjunction with the Emsella therapy. We are conveniently located to serve the areas of Annapolis, Baltimore, Columbia and Maryland.
Why Emsculpt Neo?
Emsculpt Neo is unique compared to other nonsurgical body sculpting treatments because it both builds muscle and burns fat in one non-invasive treatment. Emsculpt Neo treatment can be completed in just 30 minutes and delivers highly effective body contouring results with no downtime.
How Does Emsculpt Neo Work?
Emsculpt Neo works using radiofrequency (RF) energy and High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy simultaneously. This stimulates involuntary muscle contractions in the treatment area, building muscle more effectively and efficiently than traditional exercise can. These muscle contractions occur in the skeletal muscles, which is not possible through a normal exercise routine. At the same time, the stimulated muscle contractions lead to lipolysis, or fat burning. 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 nonsurgical, noninvasive 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. 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 lunchbreak and return to your normal routine immediately after if you choose. Following Emsculpt Neo treatment, you will likely notice some soreness in the 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. Following this period, you can return for additional Emsculpt Neo body contouring sessions if you choose.
