Emsculpt Neo Q&A

Why can I not lose fat in my problem areas?

Understanding how “problem areas” occur is key to learning how to break through those contouring goals. 


Your body has fat cells throughout, most of which are arranged in a layer just beneath the surface of your skin. Each of these cells can expand to store more fat, and contract when that fat is burned. 


Take in more calories than you consume, and your fat cells will grow. Burn more calories than you take in, and your fat cells will shrink. 


The problem lies in the inability to control which fat stores are depleted first. That means you can stick to an outstanding diet and exercise regimen and still encounter areas of your body where stubborn fat remains. 

What is Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt Neo is an innovative body contouring platform that helps you shed stubborn fat for good. Even better, the system also helps tone targeted muscle tissue to contour your body. 


Emsculpt Neo treatments are noninvasive, and there’s no need for incisions or anesthesia. You won’t have to go through preparation or recovery, and many people have their sessions during a break from work. 


There is no discomfort associated with Emsculpt Neo treatments. No one will know you had a little help reaching your fitness goals, but many will notice you look more trim and toned. In fact, most people who try Emsculpt experience a 30% reduction in fat in the treated area and a 25% improvement in muscle mass. 

How does Emsculpt Neo work?

The Emsculpt Neo treatment platform combines two proven treatments, one using radiofrequency energy and the other using high-intensity electromagnetic energy. Sessions only take around 30 minutes from start to finish, and most people get the best results after a series of four treatments. 


Emsculpt Neo treatments deliver carefully controlled radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of your skin. That energy damages the cellular structure of targeted fat cells. 


Many will become unable to store fat, and the fat held within those cells will emerge and be processed through your lymphatic system. Best of all, damaged fat cells cannot regenerate, which means your results are lasting. 


The muscle toning aspect of Emsculpt Neo takes advantage of the heat generated within treated muscle cells, warming them up and preparing them for action. The high-intensity electromagnetic energy triggers muscle fiber contractions at rates simply unachievable through traditional exercise. 


Your muscles react to those contractions by creating new muscle cells and fibers, toning your muscles, and enhancing the contouring in the same areas where fat reduction will take place. Keep in mind that it takes time for your body to process released fat and build new muscle, so expect to see your results emerging over a period of weeks as you move through treatments.
