EMSCULPT NEO® is an FDA-approved medical device to reduce fat, enhance muscle tone, and subsequently enhance the contour of the specific body part treated. EMSCULPT NEO® uses two technologies: HIFEM & synchronized RF heating.
HIFEM stands for high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology.
There are a lot of electromagnetic devices that you are already familiar with:
1. An MRI machine uses similar technology to create an image of the body part scanned.
2. Your cell phone communicates via electromagnetic radio waves.
HIFEM produces a powerful but a harmless form of electromagnetic energy that stimulates the treatment area muscles to contract. This is done by creating electrical currents within the muscle tissue to produce muscle contractions. This is similar to the electrical activity that your body does naturally whenever you want to move any part of your body. Repeated over and over and with high enough intensity, this treatment simulates vigorous activity or gym work-outs. During treatment, your muscles can contract up to 20,000 times. Further, the HIFEM energy is focused only muscle deep.
Therefore, when the muscles contract enough times, the treatment begins to tone and strengthen the treated muscle group and in turn this can “burn” fat.
EMSCULPT NEO® machine paddles are placed on the treatment area. As HIFEM is applied, patients typically experience muscle twitches and movements similar to what an aggressive muscle work out at the gym produces. With adjustments and proper settings, these treatments are NOT painful.
One treatment area is done over a four week period of time. Each session is 20 to 30-minute each.
Over 30 clinical studies and publications have investigated the success of HIFEM treatments since 2008. Studies have shown that HIFEM can strengthen muscles and increase muscle volume by up to 25 percent*. Individual patient results however will vary.
One study used MRI scans to analyze the growth in the bicep, tricep, and calf muscle tone after treatment. The MRI showed an average increase in muscle mass for all three muscle groups. The biceps increased by 17.1 percent, triceps increased by 10.2 percent, and calf muscle increased by 14.6 percent. See additional data and images in the scientific publication section.
RF stands for radio-frequency. Simultaneous with the HIFEM, the EMSCULPT NEO® device produces heating of the fat tissues underneath the skin by RF, similar to a home heating pad. However, a home heating pad produces unfocused and scattered electromagnetic energy to heat your body for comfort. Instead, the EMSCULPT NEO® RF energy is more targeted and focused to induce fat cell loss. This is done via a process called apoptosis. Over time, fat cells are permanently destroyed and removed by the body. Clinical studies have shown an average reduction of 30% of subcutaneous fat over the treatment area.* The full treatment results can take up to 3 months to evolve. Nevertheless, individual patient results will vary. See additional data and images in the scientific publication section.

No, EMSCULPT NEO® treatments may feel intense but should never be painful.
A patient can feel intense muscle contractions similar to an aggressive multi-hour gym work out. The intensity is individualized to produce a comfortable session. However, lower intensities will reduce efficacy. Additionally, the heat sensation felt in the treated area is comparable to hot stone massage.
EMSCULPT NEO® procedure is simple and easy. The device paddle(s) are placed on skin cleaned with rubbing alcohol. There has to be either no hair or minimal hair on the treatment area. For certain individuals, body hair will need to be trimmed prior to the treatment session. The only pre-procedure preparation required is being well hydrated. Other requirements include comfortable clothing that do not contain metal and no piercings in place. Please see the eligibility application for further details. You will be laying down while the applicators are applied over the treatment area for 20-30 minutes. Unfortunately, you can NOT have any electronics (cell phone, tablets, nor readers) near you during the treatment session. During the treatment you may feel intense yet tolerable heating sensation along with muscle contractions. Once the procedure is completed, there are no restrictions. You can immediately get back to your daily routine, including going back to work, school, or even shopping.
EMSCULPT NEO® device was not studied for weight loss and is not FDA approved for weight loss. However, the therapy helps reduce your fat and build your muscles at the targeted treatment area.
It has been FDA approved to reduce your waist circumference. Both ultrasound and MRI studies showed fat loss and muscle gain.
With a healthier lifestyle, appropriate diet and continued exercise, EMSCULPT NEO® can be one component in your weight loss goals. Individual results will vary.
Areas that can be treated include the abdomen, back of thighs, buttocks, calves, front of thighs, inner thighs, outer thighs. To equally balance the arm, the biceps and triceps are done as one muscle group. Each muscle group area would entail 4 sessions over a one month period of time. Yes, each treatment area would be a separate expense.
The device was not clinically studied in patients whose weight and height are calculated at a BMI (body mass index) of greater than 35. However, options are available; please discuss your individual situation with your provider at the consultation visit.
Being adequately hydrated before an EMSCULPT NEO® treatment is the only special dietary requirement before the procedure. For the abdominal procedures, we ask that you not eat 2 hours before your treatment. There are no special supplements or diets to follow during or after the treatments. A sensible, well balanced diet is always recommended. Routine exercise can be resumed the very next day. Our office also offers nutritional counseling and medication weight loss support at separate office visits.
YES! EMSCULPT NEO ® and the embedded high intensity magnetic field (HIFEM) technology has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies.* Moreover, 30 scientific publications make HIFEM the most intensively researched body contouring technology since its introduction in 2018. Millions of treatments have been given worldwide.
Each muscle group treatment consists of four 20-30-minute treatments, scheduled 5-10 days apart. See treatment consent form for further details. Or, set up an appointment today to consult a provider. By offering additional personalized nutritional counseling and medication support at different visits, we hope that an EMSCULPT NEO® treatment is just one part of the equation for a healthier you!
After the treatment, the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes called apoptosis. The fat cells that are destroyed do not return. However, if you do not follow a healthy diet and exercise plan after the EMSCULPT NEO® treatments you may increase the the size of remaining fat cells in those areas and thus potentially gain weight again; this is called cellular hypertrophy.
Yes! EMSCULPT NEO® treatments can assist with losing fat and building muscles simultaneously.
The longevity of results from EMSCULPT NEO® treatments depends on the patient's future diet, exercise and lifestyle regimen. Some people undergo EMSCULPT NEO® treatments and then maintain their newly toned body afterwards on their own with regular exercise and effective diet. Other patients prefer to receive regular maintenance treatments in the future to maintain losses and continue to tone and build their muscles. A poor diet and inactivity can cause weight gain and the loss of muscle tone and strength.
Even slimmer patients interested in muscle building can enjoy significant benefits when using the EMSCULPT NEO®. Clinical studies* showed on average a 25% growth in muscle volume. Individual results will vary and can take from 1-3 months to develop.
EMSCULPT NEO ® does not compare to liposuction 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.
No, unfortunately, despite the potential for probable health benefits, EMSULPT NEO® treatments are considered to be cosmetic therapies and are NOT covered by any commercial, private, federal (Medicare) or state insurance (Title 19 – Husky) programs. All payments for treatment, administrative fees, or other services will be collected upfront in either cash or by major credit card only (VISA®, Debit cards, Mastercard®, Discover®). Financing options are now available (see below). Payments for treatment series can be made either weekly or in full upfront. Paying for a full treatment series up front is advantageous as treatment fee prices will be locked in at the time of payment and be protected against any future price increases. Please consult your tax adviser to see if these health treatments qualify for HSA funds (health saving account).
Yes! For a limited time, there are several discounts available. Due to contractual obligations we cannot publish our discounted prices! Please see our fee schedule for published prices. Additionally, other unpublished discounts with significant percentage off prices may be available. Please ask at your consultation visit.
