EMSCULPT NEO® is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that provides simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building in a combined 30-minute session. Built off of its predecessor, EMSCULPT®, EMSCULPT NEO® simultaneously emits both radio frequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies. These energies result in more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard product for less time and less money.
Through seven clinical studies by BTL, the manufacturer of EMSCULPT NEO®, they measured fat and muscle with imaging (CT scans and MRI studies) to compare photos, waistline measurements, and muscle mass before and after treatment. Patients found on average:
- 30% reduction of fat
- 5.9 cm (2.3 inch) loss in waistline circumference
- 25% increase in muscle mass
- 19% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
Best Candidates for EMSCULPT NEO
EMSCULPT NEO® is well-suited for all genders and body types who desire more definition of their abs, arms, thighs, calves or lifting of the buttocks. It is approved for patients with a BMI of 35 – making this service available to a variety of body shapes and fitness levels.
How EMSCULPT NEO works
EMSCULPT NEO® uses an applicator that simultaneously emits synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies. Radiofrequency helps muscle temperatures raise quickly by several degrees. Like what a warm-up activity does before a workout, this heat helps prepare muscles for exposure to stress.
In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause a process called apoptosis. This process damages fat cells and slowly removes them from the body. This heat can also result in tightening of the skin in treated areas.
Using HIFEM+ energy, EMSCULPT NEO® contracts muscle fibers in desired areas at intensities that are not achievable during a regular, voluntary workout. Muscles are forced to adapt, resulting in an increased number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. Clinical studies showed a 25% growth in muscle volume on average. Patients found that EMSCULPT NEO® helped to strengthen, firm and tighten the treated muscles.
How much fat will I lose with EMSCULPT NEO?
According to clinical studies, patients had an average of a 30% reduction in fat, a 2.3 inch average loss in waistline measurements, and patients gained 25% muscle mass following a series of 4 EMSCULPT NEO® treatments.
How many EMSCULPT NEO treatments are needed?
Clinical studies with EMSCULPT NEO® for the abdomen and buttocks treated patients for 30 minutes, once a week, for one month – a total of 4 treatments. Typically, one treatment every 3-6 months for maintenance is required to maintain results.
