EMSculpt NEO is non-invasive technology that will help you sculpt your body and build muscle in just 4 sessions!

• Builds 25% muscle (20,000 muscle contractions per treatment)
• Decreases fat 30%
• Non-invasive technology

Regardless of age, muscles are vital to your overall health. Muscles comprise 35% of your body and allow for movement, balance, physical strength, organ function, skin integrity, immunity and wound healing.

EMSCULPT NEO is the only non-invasive technology that simultaneously uses Radiofrequency and HIFEM+ (high intensity electromagnetic field) to eliminate fat and build muscle. This results in more fat reduction and more muscle growth than any single gold standard product.

EMSCULPT NEO combines HIFEM+ and RF energy to tone the abdomen and shape the buttocks, arms, and calves.

FAQs About EMSculpt NEO

What does EMSCULPT feel like? Does EMSCULPT hurt?

EMSCULPT is not painful, it simply feels like a series of strong muscle contractions.  Thinner patients may feel EMSCULPT more, and decreased energies may be used during treatment.  Many patients tend to instinctively smile or laugh during the first few minutes, then the body adapts to the rhythm of muscle contractions and it’s easily tolerated.

How much fat will I lose with a series of EMSCULPT treatments?

According to clinical studies, patients had an average of a 20% reduction in fat and a 1.5 inch average loss in waistline measurements following a series of 4 EMSCULPT treatments.

How much muscle mass will I tone with a series of EMSCULPT?

In clinical studies, patients gained 16% muscle mass after a series of 4 treatments with EMSCULPT.

How should I prepare for an EMSCULPT treatment?

No preparation is required prior to EMSCULPT treatment.  As your muscles in the treatment area will be strongly contracting, prepare as you would prior to a rigorous strength training session at the gym.  Empty your bladder and avoid a full meal immediately prior to treatment.

How long is an EMSCULPT treatment session? How many treatments will I need?

An EMSCULPT treatment session lasts 30 minutes. Clinical studies on EMSCULPT were done as a series of 4 treatments total – twice weekly treatments for 2 weeks.

What should I expect immediately after EMSCULPT treatment?

The area of treatment may be mildly sore, similar to a strength training workout.  This may persist for a day following treatment.

Is there any downtime following EMSCULPT treatment?

No, the majority of patients immediately resume normal activities following treatment.

How long does it take to see results following EMSCULPT?

Some patients notice increased muscle tone of the abs one day following treatment.  The roughly 16% increase in muscle mass and 20% reduction in fat were measured 2 months after the 4th treatment.

Does EMSCULPT help diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation after pregnancy)?

Yes, clinical studies demonstrate an 11% reduction in diastasis recti following 4 treatments with EMSCULPT.  Diastasis recti is a medical term describing separation of the abdominal muscles.  In extreme cases, it can cause a midline hernia (ventral hernia) or bulging of abdominal tissues.  This most commonly occurs during pregnancy, as the belly increases in size to accommodate a growing baby.  The increasing size of the womb stretches the abdominal muscles, leading to diastasis recti.  EMSCULPT offers the first non-surgical means of improving diastasis recti.

Who is a poor candidate for EMSCULPT? Are there contraindications?

Patients with significant fat stores may not be ideal candidates for EMSCULPT.  The HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to power EMSCULPT penetrates to about 7 cm.  Those with thicker fat stores may not get as significant of muscle contraction, resulting in less results following treatment.

Pregnant and nursing females should not undergo treatment with EMSCULPT.

Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner or cramping is increased/intensified with EMSCULPT treatments, therefore we recommend not undergoing treatment during this time of the month.

Possible contraindications to treatment include the following:

  • Metal or electronic implants in the treatment area
  • Cardiac pacemakers
  • Implanted defibrillators
  • Implanted neurostimulators
  • Drug pumps
  • Malignant tumor
  • Hemorrhagic conditions
  • Epilepsy
  • Recent surgical procedures

Is EMSCULPT a TENS device?

No, but it is the closest analogy to HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic) energy used to power EMSCULPT.  TENS, (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) devices, produce small amounts of battery-powered electrical energy to stimulate muscle contraction. TENS devices are used to treat pain disorders.

EMSCULPT, on the other hand, is an extremely powerful device measured in Tesla, a measurement of magnetic induction often used to describe MRI imaging.  EMSCULPT is capable of producing supraphysiologic contraction of muscles and is exponentially more powerful than a TENS device.

Is EMSCULPT safe? Are there any side effects from EMSCULPT treatment?

Yes, focused electromagnetic energy from EMSCULPT is considered safe.  As mentioned previously, mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is twice-weekly and expected side effect from EMSCULPT treatment.

How does EMSCULPT compare to other methods of fat reduction such as liposuction, CoolSculpting or Vanquish?

EMSCULPT is a non-surgical approach to high-definition abs and butt lifting.  It has no downtime or pain, but requires a series of treatments and periodic maintenance.

Liposuction (liposculpture) is the gold standard of fat removal.  At Art of Skin MD, liposculpture is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure performed under local numbing called tumescent anesthesia.  It’s intended for areas of unwanted fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise.  Liposculpture is capable of removing large volumes of fat in a single treatment but involves some degree of downtime.

Cryolipolysis,often termed “CoolSculpting” by Zeltiq, is a method of non-invasive fat removal that freezes fat, causing fat cell death and elimination. Like Vanquish, CoolSculpting is non-invasive and can reduce unwanted fat. However, cryolipolysis is a form of spot treatment for fat reduction. Larger areas such as the abdomen often require multiple applications, with each session lasting 1 hour. The fat is frozen during treatment, and must be massaged, as it feels like a frozen stick of butter immediately after treatment.

In a small minority of cases, cryolipolysis can cause significant discomfort following treatment, rarely requiring pain medication after treatment. Additionally, cryolipolysis is somewhat technique-dependent. Multiple applicators to treat a large area such as the abdomen must be stacked and overlapped to avoid irregularities following treatment.

Vanquish uses heat to lead to the permanent removal of unwanted fat.  It’s intended for individuals who struggle with stubborn areas of fat deposition, resistant to dietary and exercise measures. It’s excellent at “de-bulking” or non-invasively reducing the abdomen and flanks simultaneously. It’s not a substitute for liposuction, which allows a greater volume of fat removal. However, for some patients who are not candidates for CoolSculpting, or who do not wish to undergo surgery, Vanquish may be a good treatment option.

Can EMSCULPT be combined with other body sculpting treatments?

Yes, EMSCULPT can be combined with non-invasive fat removal procedures like CoolSculpting and Vanquish to enhance fat reduction.  For the buttocks, Sculptrafat transfer or Ultherapy may be combined with EMSCULPT to shape and lift the derriere.

Is fat loss and increased muscle mass permanent following EMSCULPT treatment?

Fat cells destroyed by increased fat metabolism with EMSCULPT is permanent.  However, weight gain causes remaining fat cells to grow, leading to possible loss of effect.

Muscle mass is not permanent, but likely lasts 6 months or longer.  Periodic EMSCULPT treatments can maintain the muscle tone achieved from an initial series of EMSCULPT treatments.

What happens if I gain weight following EMSCULPT treatment?

A healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise maintenance, is encouraged following your series of EMSCULPT treatments. An increase in weight will allow fat stores to accumulate. This may occur disproportionately in areas untreated by EMSCULPT.
