HB: What is Emsculpt NEO?

As the world struggles by fits and starts to overcome Covid-19, the maker of the popular Emsculpt, BTL, rolled out at the end of 2020 the most advanced body shaping device, Emsculpt NEO.

This is the only existing non-surgical body sculpting technology that pushes the standards of results and effectiveness by combining HIFEM (high-frequency electromagnetic field) with RF (radiofrequency) for simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building in 30 minutes. The bonus with RF is skin tightening. That's multiple procedures in one session with very desirable payoffs:

• The treatment is non-surgical and minimally invasive.

• The targeted areas such as the abdomen can result in 25% muscle tone, 30% loss of subcutaneous fat, and 6% reduction in circumference.

• For abdominal separation, treatment can result in a 19% reduction.

• For the buttocks, a safe and effective way to shape and lift without needles or injections.

• For arms, tone, and firm the triceps and biceps.

• For thighs and calves, strengthen and tone in 30 days.

• Convenience with more value in less time.

• Less downtime and minimal risk.

Emsculpt NEO uses one or two applicators depending on the area and emits synchronized energies of a high-frequency electromagnetic field and radiofrequency.

HIFEM goes beyond human limits and contracts muscle such that a 30-minute abdominal session equals 20,000 crunches at 90-100% intensity and consistency. Much more muscle fibers and cells grow as they repair to an average of 25% muscle growth.

RF warms muscle for the workout, and gently heats subcutaneous fat, causing apoptosis (damage to fat cells) and lipolysis (breakdown of fat) with an average of 30% loss.

HB: What is the difference between Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO?

Add RF to improved HIFEM and you get multiple successful processes in less time with more value.

Dr. Lewis is a keen adaptor to technologies that help her patients do better with their health effectively and safely. Her determination is especially important and valuable in the context of today’s challenges with the Pandemic and its consequences.

HB: How many sessions are needed to see results?

While the results and patient experience may vary, the FDA-approved protocol is four sessions in four weeks which equals 12 to 16 weeks of HIIT workouts. Clinical studies have shown up to 30% fat reduction, 25% increase in muscle tone, and skin tightening in the treated area.

While you might feel as if you worked out, you won’t feel you did 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes! There really is no downtime, and the risks are minimal. It takes about 12 to 16 weeks for the body to dispose of the fat, and you can see the full effect by then.

HB: Who is a good candidate for Emsculpt NEO?

Each person is different, and the best way to find out is to call us, or a highly qualified provider. It is your health and your body, so do take the time to choose carefully, because a great deal or price does not promise safe and satisfactory results. Emsculpt NEO is a high-intensity electromagnetic and radiofrequency that has proven to work and can treat patients up to BMI 35. Dr. Lewis will guide you to decide what is best for your needs and expectations.
