1. What is Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt NEO is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that uses RF or radiofrequency heating for fat reduction and high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) for muscle strengthening and toning in a 30-minute session. The end result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard product, for less time and less money. Best of all, Emsculpt NEO has a broad patient appeal as it can treat patients up to BMI 35.  At Shape Med Centers its the ONLY treatment we perform so our team are experts in the use of this amazing new technology.

2. How does Emsculpt NEO work?

Emsculpt NEO at Shape Med Centers is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies. Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm up activity does before any workout.

In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat.

Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts 100% of the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workout. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. On average the muscle volume increases by 25%

11. What is the difference between Emsculpt NEO and CoolSculpting?

Emsculpt NEO at Shape Med Centers and CoolSculpting are both popular non-invasive body sculpting treatments, but they utilize different technologies and target different aspects of body contouring.

  1. Technology:

    • Emsculpt NEO: It uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to simultaneously reduce fat and build muscle. The RF energy heats the tissue, preparing it for muscle contractions induced by the HIFEM technology. These muscle contractions are intense and help to strengthen and tone the muscles, while the heating effect can also help with fat reduction and skin tightening.
    • CoolSculpting: It uses a process called cryolipolysis, which freezes and destroys fat cells. The treatment involves placing a specialized applicator on the targeted area, which then cools the fat cells to a temperature that triggers their natural death. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells through its lymphatic system.
  2. Targeted Areas:

    • Emsculpt NEO: Primarily targets muscle building and fat reduction in specific areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and thighs. It’s particularly effective for individuals looking to enhance muscle tone and definition in addition to reducing fat.
    • CoolSculpting: Primarily targets fat reduction in areas with stubborn fat deposits, such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and under the chin. It’s ideal for individuals who want to address localized pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
  3. Treatment Duration and Results:

    • Emsculpt NEO: A typical treatment session lasts about 30 minutes, and most individuals require a series of sessions spaced several days apart for optimal results. Many people report seeing improvement in muscle tone and fat reduction after a few sessions, with continued improvement over the following weeks.
    • CoolSculpting: Treatment sessions typically last one hour per treated area, and multiple sessions may be needed to achieve desired results. Results are not immediate and may take several weeks to become noticeable as the body gradually eliminates the treated fat cells.
  4. Side Effects:

    • Emsculpt NEO: Side effects are generally mild and may include muscle soreness, redness, or swelling in the treated area. These effects typically resolve within a few days.
    • CoolSculpting: Common side effects include temporary numbness, tingling, bruising, or redness at the treatment site. These effects usually subside on their own within a few days to weeks. There is also another more rare issue called hyperplasia, which is a serious condition where the fat actually increases into a hard bulge that normally needs surgical intervention.

Ultimately, the choice between Emsculpt NEO at Shape Med Centers and CoolSculpting depends on individual goals, preferences, and the areas of concern. Our findings have been that Emsculpt NEO gives patients two treatments in one and is the better overall choice for more patients.

12. What happens to the fat that is eliminated by Emsculpt NEO procedure? Will the fat come back?

After the treatment at Shape Med Centers.   the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes. The rest is flushed out by the body primarily in the lymphatic system and through the body’s natural waste elimination process.  Once these fat cells are gone they do NOT come back.  Fat cells contract and expand as we gain or lose weight, they don’t increase in number after puberty.  Thats the beauty of destroying them with RF (radio frequency).   Once they are gone they are gone for good!

13. Are there any special supplements or diets I need to follow before or after the Emsculpt NEO treatment?

The Emsculpt NEO treatment at Shape Med Centers does not require any pre-treatment preparations, although we do ask that you are fully hydrated before starting treatment with us. You can resume your regular lifestyle right after the treatment.   It is recommended to follow a healthy lifestyle, balanced diet and proper hydration for best results.

14. Will I lose weight with Emsculpt NEO?

No, Emsculpt NEO procedure at Shape Med Centers does not help with weight reduction. The therapy helps reduce your fat and build your muscles.

15. Is Emsculpt NEO painful?

Emsculpt NEO treatments at Shape Med Centers may feel intense but should never be painful.

16. How does Emsculpt NEO compare to liposuction and non-invasive device alternatives?

Liposuction cannot be compared with Emsculpt NEO as Emsculpt NEO is a completely non-invasive procedure. It does not require surgery, needles, anesthesia, or any downtime. There is no other device in the aesthetic field that treats both fat and muscle in a single treatment.   The beauty of Emsculpt NEO at Shape Med Centers is there is NO downtime like you would have with liposuction or surgery.   Other non invasive treatments will treat just fat or just muscle, Emsculpt NEO does both.   Its basically a 2 for 1 treatment and we are the experts!

17. What if the patient has lower BMI and is interested only in muscle building? Is there a benefit for Emsculpt NEO´s slimmer patients?

Even slimmer patients interested in muscle building can enjoy significant benefits when using the Emsculpt NEO at Shape Med Centers. Clinical studies showed on average a 25% growth in muscle mass.
