People often say that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But EMSCULPT Neo® is an outstanding exception to that rule. This nonsurgical treatment does exactly what it claims, resculpting your body by permanently eliminating fat and building muscle at the same time.
EMSCULPT Neo is a safe, powerful treatment and one of the most popular noninvasive therapies that Rafael C. Cabrera, MD, FACS and his team provide at Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton. Ask for a free consultation to learn how EMSCULPT Neo can improve your body. Here, we explain how it works and the body areas you can flatten and tone with it.
EMSCULPT Neo is a medical device that combines two treatments, radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies. It’s completely noninvasive, and it’s approved to treat five body areas:
Radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energy pass through your skin without causing harm. Then they produce results as they reach fat and muscle cells below the surface.
Here’s how the two energies work together to create outstanding results:
In about four minutes, the RF energy heats fat cells just enough to make them break down and liquify. Your body naturally clears away the waste over time, and the treated fat cells disappear forever.
Though it’s highly effective, EMSCULPT isn’t meant for significant weight loss. As a body sculpting procedure, it’s intended to eliminate bulges that stick around despite your diet and exercise efforts, such as love handles, a tummy bulge, and fat on your upper arms and thighs.
The RF energy also heats the nearby muscles, achieving the equivalent of a typical warm-up before you exercise or engage in sports. As a result, the muscles are ready for the stress of the intense workout produced by high-intensity magnetic energy.
HIFEM+ contracts muscle fibers at a rate and intensity you can’t reach during a regular physical workout. As HIFEM+ bypasses the limitations of your brain and body, it tightens and releases muscles thousands of times during your session, creating extreme stress that boosts your muscle mass.
Your HIFEM+ treatment promotes new muscle growth and increases the number of muscle fibers. At the same time, it grows and strengthens your existing muscles.
During your EMSCULPT session, you only need to lie down and relax while the machine does all of the work. We use specially sized devices that fit each body area. After we secure the device, we turn the machine on and your session begins.
Your session lasts about 30 minutes. During that time, you should never feel pain or discomfort. Instead, you experience the warmth produced by the RF energy (like a hot stone massage) and feel the muscle contractions (like a workout) while you relax.
You don’t need to worry about planning for downtime afterward, either. As soon as your session is over, you can return to all of your usual daily activities.
We talk with you about the regimen that can help you achieve optimal results. However, most people need at least four sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart.
You may notice results after your final treatment. As your muscles keep strengthening and your body removes more of the damaged fat cells, you’ll keep seeing improvement for several weeks. You should see the full result within four weeks.
While individual results vary, patients on average can expect to lose 30% of the fat treated and achieve a 25% growth in muscle volume.
