Targeting specific areas for sculpting can be an overwhelming task. Areas like the abdomen, buttocks, arms and calves can be stubborn areas for fat deposits. They can be resistant to diet and exercise, making it difficult to reduce the amount of fat and strengthen the underlying muscles. Now there is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to tackle both of these common issues at once: EmSculpt Neo®. This is a proven method for fat reduction and muscle strengthening, combining two technologies into one sculpting technique.


Emsculpt Neo productEmSculpt Neo is an FDA-approved method to non-invasively (non-surgical) break down fat and improve muscle tone and strength in the abdomen, buttocks, arms and calves. Over the course of several treatments, the dual procedure of fat reduction and muscle strengthening only takes 30 minutes of your time per session.

EmSculpt Neo is clinically tested for safety and is entirely non-invasive. Building from the technology of its predecessor, EmSculpt Neo emits radiofrequency waves and high-intensity electromagnetic waves simultaneously, breaking down fat and stimulating muscle tone. It is a cost-effective, non-surgical way to tone and sculpt your figure with no downtime.

How Does EMSCULPT NEO work?

By using dual energies of radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM) waves, EmSculpt Neo targets the stubborn areas of fat on the abdomen, buttocks, arms and calves. Through applicators placed on the target areas, the RF waves raise the temperature of the muscle and subcutaneous fat by several degrees. This optimal, controlled temperature is the exact point to destroy fat cells without harming any other type of cell. The body will then remove the fat cells during its natural elimination processes.

While the fat is being targeted, the optimum temperature is also warming the muscles. Once warmed, the HIFEM energies rapidly contract the muscles in the targeted area, forcing them to adapt and grow new muscle fibers. More muscle fibers mean better strength and tone. It is similar to how you would build muscle through exercise, but HIFEM energy can achieve intensities that even the most strenuous workout cannot.

Does EMSCULPT NEO Require Any Downtime?
EmSculpt Neo is entirely non-invasive, does not require any anesthesia and does not create scars. The heat energies created by EmSculpt Neo will be like a hot stone massage and are tightly controlled. The muscle contractions are intense and rapid, but they should not be painful. You do not need to do anything special to prepare for the procedure, and there is no downtime afterward. You can go straight back to your regular activities.

Can EMSCULPT NEO Help with Overall Weight Loss?
EmSculpt Neo is designed to treat target areas of the abdomen, buttocks, arms and calves and will not contribute to overall weight loss. However, what sets EmSculpt Neo apart is the wide variety of people who can use the technology. Slim patients looking to build muscle can use the device to improve muscle volume, while patients with a body mass index (BMI) of up to 35 can benefit from both the RF and HIFEM energies. There are few devices on the market designed to cater to such a wide range of body types.
