Emsculpt vs. Emsculpt NEO: Which treatment is right for you?

Do you have areas of stubborn, unwanted fat around your mid-section that diet and exercise just can’t seem to get rid of? Do you need a little help achieving your aesthetics goals?

Body sculpting is a category of non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that help destroy fat cells and build muscle mass, especially in the abdominal, buttocks, thighs, and upper arm areas. Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO are two of the hottest technologies in body sculpting today and can help you achieve the results you want.

Emsculpt is a relatively new body sculpting technology that has been insanely popular in the last few years. Now Emsculpt NEO is the latest and greatest technology to hit the market. What’s the difference and which treatment is right for you? Read below for more information.

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is one of the only body sculpting treatments that not only burns fat but also helps build and tone muscle.

Emsculpt works by delivering high-intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to the muscles, causing a series of intense muscle contractions. These muscle contractions are called supramaximal contractions, which are deeper than muscle contractions that you can achieve on your own. Supramaximal contractions activate 100% of the muscle and they can remodel the inner structure of your muscles. Just one treatment gets you results that are equivalent to doing 20,000 crunches or squats.

Treatment typically includes four 30-minute sessions over the course of a few weeks. It is recommended to receive treatments every six months for the best results. Those who combine Emsculpt treatment with a good diet and exercise may expect to see good results last even longer.

Emsculpt is great because you can burn fat and achieve a toned look without the need for surgery or downtime for recovery.

What is Emsculpt NEO?

Emsculpt NEO is the latest body sculpting technology to hit the market, just released in the summer of 2020. We love NEO because it has even more fat-burning power than regular Emsculpt.

Like regular Emsculpt, NEO also uses HIFEM technology to burn fat and build muscle tone. Sessions are also 30-minutes long.

What sets NEO apart is that it also incorporates radiofrequency (RF) energy, which emits heat to warm up the body similar to how a warmup before a workout would. This prepares the muscles for treatment and helps burn away subcutaneous fat cells. Emsculpt NEO is also 25% stronger than its predecessor Emsculpt providing even better results to our patients!

The treatment protocol is slightly different from Emsculpt, being x1 30 minute treatment per week, for four weeks for the abdomen or, x2 30 minute treatments per week for 2 weeks for glutes. The new small applicators with RF will be available to treat biceps, triceps, and calves shortly. 

With this awesome new fat-burning technology, you can expect to burn more fat and build muscle tone more quickly—therefore achieving better, faster, longer-lasting results.

We are excited to announce that we now offer Emsculpt NEO services at our clinic in Malvern.

What do Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments feel like?

Just one treatment with Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments is equivalent to doing 20,000 crunches or squats—but don’t worry, they don’t feel like it.

You can feel the deep muscle contractions while the treatment is in process. It might feel a little funny or uncomfortable at first, but it is not painful. There is also no recovery time and you can proceed with your normal daily activities after completing a session.

With Emsculpt NEO, you can also feel a warming sensation in your muscles. Some have compared the warmth of the treatment to a hot stone massage. Sounds nice, right?

Is body sculpting suitable for everyone?

Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments work best on people who are already in good shape, exercise regularly, and follow a healthy diet. However, these treatments are still great for most people within a normal BMI range.

There are some restrictions for treatment, such as pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with pacemakers or other electronic medical devices, people with orthopedic implants, and more.

How well do Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments work?

Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO are extremely reliable treatments. A clinical trial of the technology showed that Emsculpt can produce up to a 25 percent increase in muscle mass and a 30 percent reduction of fat over a three-month treatment period among most people.

Emsculpt NEO technology has also been shown to achieve better results than other popular body sculpting technologies, such as cryolipolysis as well as providing a complete ‘walk in, walk out’ option to patients who do not want any downtime (no swelling, bruising, or tenderness).

So while it might seem too good to be true, Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO can help you achieve truly amazing fitness and aesthetic results today!
