What is Emsculpt NEO, and how does it contour your body?

What is Emsculpt NEO? An In-Depth Guide to the Body Toning Treatment

By Ysabel Vitangcol on August 9, 2023

Looking into sculpting your body? You may have seen our body contouring options here in Belo, but one popular one is Emsculpt NEO! This innovative treatment has quickly gained popularity for its ability to tone muscles and enhance the appearance of the body. Look into what Emsculpt NEO is and check out this guide to understanding this cutting-edge body toning treatment!

What is Emsculpt NEO?

Emsculpt NEO is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce muscle contractions. Unlike traditional body sculpting techniques that primarily target fat reduction, Emsculpt NEO focuses on enhancing muscle tone and definition. 

The Emsculpt NEO device is designed with specialized applicators that are applied to specific target areas, such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. The technology emits high-frequency electromagnetic pulses that stimulate the muscles, causing them to contract involuntarily in a manner that is not achievable through regular exercise. These powerful contractions lead to increased muscle strength and growth, resulting in a more toned and sculpted appearance.

How does it work?

Emsculpt NEO works on the principle of supramaximal muscle contractions, which are muscle contractions that exceed what the body can achieve through voluntary exercise. The device induces approximately 20,000 forced contractions (think sit-ups!) in a single 30-minute session, effectively targeting deep muscle layers that are often difficult to engage with regular exercise routines. The intense contractions triggered by Emsculpt NEO not only lead to hypertrophy (muscle growth) but also cause a series of metabolic reactions in the muscles. This process leads to the release of free fatty acids, which are then used as an energy source. Consequently, the procedure not only improves muscle tone but also contributes to a reduction in localized fat deposits in the treated areas.

The Emsculpt NEO Treatment Process

Consultation: In Belo, we always share the importance of a consultation. The patient’s specific goals and expectations are discussed, and our doctors assess the areas of concern to determine the suitability of the treatment. 

Preparation: On the day of the treatment, the patient is positioned comfortably, and the Emsculpt applicator is attached to the target area. A belt embraces the targetted area that holds the Emsculpt NEO device itself. The settings are adjusted to the desired intensity, and the treatment can begin. 

Sensation and Comfort: As the treatment commences, patients usually experience a series of intense muscle contractions. While these contractions are not painful, some individuals may describe the sensation as unusual or slightly uncomfortable, sometimes even ticklish! The intensity can be adjusted throughout the session to ensure the patient’s comfort. 

No Downtime: One of the most significant advantages of Emsculpt NEO is that it requires no downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment without any restrictions! 

Recommended Number of Sessions: Although some individuals may see noticeable results after a single session, most providers recommend a series of treatments for optimal results. Typically, a minimum of four sessions over two weeks is suggested, depending on the patient’s goals and response to the treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?

Emsculpt NEO is an excellent option for individuals who are close to their ideal body weight but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat and desire more definition and muscle tone. It is not a weight loss procedure and is not intended to replace a healthy diet and regular exercise. Ideal candidates for Emsculpt should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results.

What are its benefits?

Enhanced Muscle Tone: Emsculpt NEO effectively improves muscle tone and definition in the treated areas, leading to a sculpted and more athletic appearance. 

Non-Invasive: As a non-surgical treatment, Emsculpt NEO also avoids the risks and downtime associated with invasive procedures.

Localized Fat Reduction: The muscle contractions triggered by Emsculpt NEO also contribute to the reduction of localized fat deposits in the targeted areas. 

Quick and Convenient: An Emsculpt NEO fits easily into busy schedules, lasting for only about 30 minutes!

To sum it all up….

Emsculpt NEO has ushered in a new era of body toning and sculpting, offering a non-invasive and efficient way to enhance muscle tone and reduce localized fat deposits. With its revolutionary technology, this treatment has quickly become a popular choice for those seeking a more sculpted and athletic physique. However, it is essential to consult a qualified Emsculpt provider to determine if this treatment is suitable for individual needs and goals. As technology continues to advance, we can expect further innovations in the field of aesthetic treatments, helping individuals achieve their desired body image with greater precision and ease.
