What Is the Difference Between EmSculpt® and EmSculpt NEO®?

Many people lead a healthy lifestyle and still struggle to tone and shape certain areas. We all accumulate stubborn fat in different places, and some muscle groups, like the abdomen, are a special challenge to tone. EmSculpt® and EmSculpt NEO® provide powerful non-invasive body sculpting. EmSculpt NEO® also helps shape and contour by removing fat. 

What is EmSculpt® for Body Sculpting?

Cardio and strength training can tone your muscles, but achieving your desired definition can be challenging. EmSculpt® uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Field) to trigger muscle contractions. These contractions mimic the type of activities you might do in a gym, but it repeats them thousands of times in each treatment. As a result, your muscles become stronger and more toned.

What Is the Difference Between EmSculpt® and EmSculpt NEO®?

EmSculpt NEO® is the newer version of the treatment that was introduced to the market in 2020. It uses a combination of HIFEM and radiofrequency (RF) energy to target muscle and fat. This combination allows EmSculpt NEO® to build muscle, reduce fat, and improve skin laxity. The addition of RF energy also makes EmSculpt NEO® more versatile. It can target more areas of the body, such as the thighs and arms. Combining these two treatments keeps your toned, defined muscles from being hidden by a layer of superficial fat. 

How Many EmSculpt NEO® Treatments Will I Need?

Building new muscle definition and removing targeted fat usually takes a few sessions. Most people have four treatments over a few weeks. On average, people see up to 30% less fat and 25% more muscle in targeted areas. Since muscles only retain their tone and shape if used, we recommend maintenance treatments every six months to keep your muscle definition. The fat cells broken up by RF energy will not grow back, so you can keep your sculpted results as long as you maintain a consistent weight.

Is There Any Downtime With EmSculpt NEO®?

Both treatments are non-invasive and do not require any downtime. Your muscles may feel sore in the same way that they would after a workout at the gym. Staying hydrated and eating a nutritious diet will help your muscles rebuild with more strength and tone. 

Am I a Good Candidate for EmSculpt NEO® Body Sculpting?

Almost anyone makes a good candidate for body sculpting with EmSculpt NEO®. We recommend this treatment for anyone who wants to achieve a slimmer, more toned figure. Ideal candidates are near their goal weight and have reasonable expectations. While EmSculpt NEO® does remove fat, you should not consider it a weight-loss treatment.
