A Non-Surgical Solution with Broad Appeal

Everyone wants to look their best. Women devote countless hours to their routines but sometimes cannot achieve full results they desire without the temptation to resort to surgical options. These can be incredibly costly and require weeks of down downtime. For those that may have a higher BMI, getting rid of excess fat has tremendous health benefits. Non-surgical and non-invasive options such as EMSCULPT NEO have been widely studied and are more effective at fat reduction and muscle growth, than any single gold standard product, for less time and less money. The EMSCULPT NEO can also treat patients up to BMI of 35.

Two Therapies in a Single Treatment

EMSCULPT NEO combines two therapies into a single treatment with radio frequency and high intensity electromagnetic energies. The applicator of the EMSCULPT NEO machine emits synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies simultaneously. RF, or radiofrequency energy emits heat, which raises the temperature in the muscles by several degrees quickly. Similar to the warmup session at the beginning of a workout, internally warming up the muscles prepares them for the work out they will receive from the EMSCULPT NEO treatment. A similar process is happening in the subcutaneous fat, in less than 4 minutes, EMSCULPT NEO has raised the temperature in the subcutaneous fat layers to a level that is causing apoptosis. Apoptosis means the fat cell has permanently been damaged to the point of dying and being expelled from the body. EMSCULPT NEO users have experienced on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat, as shown in clinical studies.


While the RF energy is working hard to heat and destroy subcutaneous fat cells, the HIFEM+ energy is working out your muscles to a level that is unattainable by brute force alone. The HIFEM+ energy bypasses the brain’s limitations and works directly at the muscular level. Working on the muscles that have been internally warmed up and primed, the HIFEM+ energy intensely contracts the muscle fibers, putting extreme stress on the muscle that forces it to contract and adapt in a way that can only be achieved using the EMSCULPT NEO and not through any voluntary movements. EMSCULPT NEO users experience on average a 25% increase in muscle growth as shown in clinical studies.

“Is EMSCULPT NEO right for me?”

EMSCULPT NEO is a great, non-surgical option for those seeking help to reduce subcutaneous fat and build muscle. Treatments are nonsurgical, do not require any anesthesia or incisions, and no recovery time afterward. The broad appeal also makes this a great solution for those looking to reduce their BMI and improve their overall health. EMSCULPT NEO is a wonderful, noninvasive solution for anyone looking to put the finishing touches on their physique and has very few limitations to its use.


Although EMSCULPT NEO is a great option for most, there are some contraindications that would prevent you from undergoing treatment. If you have any electronic or metal implants inside your body, such as a pacemaker, metal IUD or other medical device, the device will cause metal to heat and electronics to short-circuit. Women who are pregnant will also not be able to undergo EMSCULPT NEO. My staff and I will take the time to go over your medical history and goals prior to your treatment to determine whether EMSCULPT NEO is the right choice for you at this time.

Emsculpt Neo vs Emsculpt

Body sculpting has become immensely popular in recent years as an increasing number of people gravitate towards non-invasive treatments that can shrink areas of stubborn fat, reshaping the body and allowing the patients to have a slimmer appearance. EmSculpt Neo and EmSculpt are two of the most popular treatments that are available for body sculpting.
EmSculpt is the predecessor to EmSculpt Neo with one key different being that EmSculpt Neo combines EMSCULPT’s HIFEM technology with Radio Frequency (RF) to heat the area where the fat needs to be eliminated. Another difference between the two is that Emsculpt Neo has heat built into the device via radio frequency and is suitable for patients with greater fat reducing needs. The technological make-up is the only major difference between the two. However, the added heat from EmSculpt Neo boosts blood supply to muscles, allowing them to build up stronger and faster. It physically breaks down the layers of fat which are then metabolized by the body naturally, leading to permanent fat removal.

Emsculpt Neo Benefits

Removing stubborn pockets of fat and building muscle in certain areas of the body can sometimes be a nightmare, often lowering confidence and demotivating people. EmSculpt Neo is an excellent, non-invasive method of removing stubborn fat and building muscle simultaneously. This is made possible by heating stubborn fat cells so that they can be naturally expelled by your body while muscle fibers are contracted and stimulated at the same time. The benefits of EmSculpt Neo include:
