However, they may need to realize that there can be pockets of stubborn fat that can remain unaffected by all the efforts to eliminate them. If that is something you struggle with, there are fat removal procedures like EMSCULPT NEO® that can help. 

Read on to learn about EMSCULPT NEO and how it differs from other similar procedures. 


EMSCULPT NEO is a non-invasive option for fat removal and body contouring. It uses heat to destroy fat cells so your body can eliminate them through your lymphatic system. At the same time, it tones your muscles. 

Fat cells are vulnerable to hot and cold temperatures, allowing EMSCULPT NEO to kill off those cells without affecting others. To do this, EMSCULPT NEO uses two different types of energy: radiofrequency energy and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM+). 

HIFEM+ makes your muscles contract in a way that would be impossible even with the most strenuous exercises, quickly building muscle fibers. 

Radiofrequency energy heats the muscles to prepare them for those contractions and also heats up fat cells. In just a few minutes, the temperature rises high enough in the fat cells to break them down.

The most common treatment areas for EMSCULPT NEO are:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Love handles
  • Arms

It is essential to know that EMSCULPT NEO is not a weight loss procedure but can help reduce stubborn fat pockets. Ideal candidates for the procedure are close to their ideal weight. 

Why Choose EMSCULPT NEO Over Other Fat Reduction Procedures?

EMSCULPT NEO offers muscle toning as well as fat reduction in one treatment. Most fat reduction procedures only offer the chance to get rid of pockets of fat. With Emsculpt Neo, the applicator’s dual energies make a difference in the results. It can do this by using a patented electrode that no other body contouring procedure currently on the market can offer. 

Combining these energies can contract muscles up to 24,000 times in one 30-minute session.

EMSCULPT NEO also produces greater fat loss and muscle buildup. According to studies, it can burn 19% more fat and enhance muscle mass by 16% once you reach three months post-treatment. 

EMSCULPT NEO is non-invasive as well. Unlike other fat removal procedures like liposuction, EMSCULPT NEO does not require any downtime, allowing you can get back to your life right after getting this med spa treatment. There are also fewer restrictions on who can get the procedure since there is no need for anesthesia or surgical intervention. 

The results are also gradual and natural. It takes your body a few weeks to get rid of the damaged fat cells, so you do not have to worry about radical changes. 

It is also a procedure that offers permanent fat reduction. Once your body eliminates the fat cells, these fat cells do not return. However, new fat cells can emerge if you gain a lot of weight. 

What Is the EMSCULPT NEO Procedure Like?

You will need to schedule an appointment with a qualified provider so they can assess the treatment area and see if you are a good candidate. Not much preparation is needed, but you want to avoid anything that makes your skin very sensitive, like tanning. You also want to stay hydrated. 

The procedure takes about 30 minutes and involves you lying down while the specialist uses the patented device. 

You will likely start to see results around two weeks after treatment. For optimal results, it can help to get at least two treatments a week for the first three weeks. You can then schedule follow-up sessions every few months.
