Last December, when Glow Medispa became one of the first aesthetics practices in the country to receive the new Emsculpt NEO, founder Dr. Kate Dee and her staff were excited to see it in action. The machine arrived with high expectations, poised to break the industry’s mold of get-fit-quick treatments; and so far, the results are impressive.
“We’re not like other medispas,” says Dee. “We’re professional, approachable, and run by doctors. We only have treatments that are scientifically sound and make sense.”
These five reasons show why more and more people are trying the Emsculpt NEO to achieve the changes they’ve always wanted for their bodies.
Emsculpt NEO’s ability to produce dramatically better results lies in the synergy between two previously separate technologies. First, radio frequency (RF) waves are tuned specifically to the body’s fat cells, heating them to 113 degrees Fahrenheit. Eventually, this triggers apoptosis, or programmed cell death. The fat cells are then reabsorbed into the surrounding tissue, and the lipids inside them are taken into the lymph system and excreted over time when you visit the restroom.
Concurrently, a HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) field is applied to the muscles, stimulating and strengthening them with more than 20,000 supramaximal contractions in a half hour. The RF and HIFEM together are stronger than either alone. The results are clear improvements: one series of treatments, on average, leads to a 25% increase in muscle mass and about a 30% reduction of fat.
Treat almost any part of the body
It’s not uncommon for certain parts of the body to hold onto fat, frustratingly, despite strict dieting and exercise. For some it’s the belly; for others it may be the buttocks or saddle bags. Emsculpt NEO is cleared by the FDA to treat those areas, as well as the arms, calves, thighs, hips, and abdominals, providing a more focused approach to gain the patient’s desired outcomes.
“We look at people’s concerns and then explain how the machine works and make sure they don’t have any contraindications,” Dee says. Despite its diverse applications, it’s not for everyone: those with pacemakers, metal implants in the target zone, or rare lymphatic disorders are ineligible.
Painless and non-invasive
When patients undergo treatment with the Emsculpt NEO, they won’t experience any pain, though it may take a few minutes to get used to at first. Because RF is heating up the fat cells, your skin will feel warmer than normal, and some people might begin to sweat. On the other hand, the powerful stimulation of the muscles can be understandably intense, but that just means it’s working like it’s supposed to. Most patients tend to ease into it, with the unpleasantness diminishing over time. Compared to highly invasive alternatives, such as liposuction, it's a much less intimidating procedure.
“Most people can tolerate the treatment really well,” Dee says. “It’s great because it’s not a dangerous machine. There’s not much that can go wrong with a treatment.”
Because the Emsculpt NEO combines two treatments into one, the time of each session is kept short: four visits once a week, just 30 minutes each. The equipment consists of a wheeled cart and tethered paddles that are easily strapped to the surface of your body. There is no downtime required, which means you can fit it in with your other errands, on the way to yoga or even before work.
Quick and long-lasting results
Effectiveness translates directly to noticeable changes, sooner. “Typically, we take pictures around three to five months after the last treatment,” Dee explains, “although most people, by their third or fourth treatment, can already feel a big difference.” She also notes that people are feeling stronger right away, reporting improved athletic ability.
Another of Emsculpt NEO’s advantages? The fat loss is permanent; once you kill a fat cell, it can’t regrow, although gains can be seen in existing lipid cells. “Results are so effective, many people come back to treat other body parts,” Dee says. “It has been a total game-changer in the body sculpting world.”
“I cannot believe the results! I noticed a huge increase in my core strength and slimness throughout my waist!”
“I already did my abs, and was very pleased with the results, so I bought a glute package!”
“The Neo definitely gave my butt a little lift—it’s looking a little perkier back there!”
“Initial results are incredible, for muscle building. I could not recommend a service more! I have been doing yoga for 15 years and could never do Boat Pose. After 3 treatments of Neo, I could finally hold the pose!”
