What is EMSCULPT neo®?

EMSCULPT neo® is the first FDA-cleared treatment of its kind to reduce fat and build muscle using radio frequency (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®). This power couple produces impressive non-surgical body shaping results without downtime.

What areas does the EMSCULPT neo® treat?

EMSCULPT neo® is FDA cleared for the strengthening, toning, and firming of the following areas:

  • Abdomen – delivers a tighter stomach and a more defined six-pack
  • Buttocks – tones and sculpts your booty
  • Arms – increases the size of your triceps and biceps and tones those chicken wings
  • Thighs – reduces the circumference of your inner and outer thighs, quads and hamstrings
  • Calves – tones the shape and size of your calves

How does EMSCULPT neo® work?

Due to the RF heating, the muscle temperature quickly rises by several degrees. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis (i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body). Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat.

Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workout. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. Clinical studies showed on average a 25% growth in muscle volume.

What do the clinical studies say?

The manufacturers of EMSCULPT neo®, BTL, conducted 30 studies on HIFEM+ technology including 7 new clinical studies on EMSCULPT neo®. Clinical studies measured tissue and muscle by imaging (ultrasound, CT scans and MRI studies), compared photos before and after treatment, and measured changes in waistline measurements. On average, the following were achieved in EMSCULPT Neo® clinical studies on healthy patients:

  • 30% reduction of adipose tissue (body fat)
  • 25% increase in muscle
  • 19% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (diastasis recti)
  • 9cm (2.3in) loss in waist circumference
  • 30% increase in satellite cells (primary stem cells in adult skeletal muscle)
  • Muscle changes similar to a 12-16 week workout regimen
  • 88%-100% patient satisfaction

Will I see results from EMSCULPT neo®?

Maximum muscle building results are often seen two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the complete treatment plan. Adipose loss takes a bit more time. Your body needs about 1-3 months after the last session to metabolize the tissue we impacted using RF.
We recommend a regimen of 4 EMSCULPT neo® treatements scheduled 5-10 days apart to aptly reduce adipose and build muscle. You may need another round, depending on your goals. You can continue using the neo’s super-charged HIFEM+ Technology for ideal muscle building results in perpetuity.
