Body Contouring:  Emsculpt Neo
& Emtone

1. What is EMSCULPT NEO? 


EMSCULPT NEO is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that uses radiofrequency heating for fat reduction and high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) for muscle strengthening and toning in 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.


2. How does EMSCULPT NEO work?


EMSCULPT NEO 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 imitations, 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%.

3. Who is the right candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?

If you can benefit from less fat and more muscle, EMSCULPT NEO procedure may be a great fit.

4. What areas can be treated with EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO can be applied over the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms & calves.

5. Does EMSCULPT NEO really work?

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.

6. How Is EMSCULPT NEO procedure performed?

EMSCULPT NEO procedure is simple and easy. There is no pre-preparation required for this procedure. You will lay down while the applicators are applied over the treatment area for 30 minutes. During the treatment you may feel intense yet tolerable muscle contractions along with heating sensation which is comparable to hot stone massage. Once the procedure is completed, you can immediately get back to your daily routine.


7. What is the protocol for EMSCULPT NEO?


Protocol for EMSCULPT NEO is usually four 30-minute treatments, scheduled 5-10 days apart. Let's meet and talk about the details. 

Emsculpt Neo is better than Coolsculpting.

Emsculpt Neo is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-sculpting procedure that builds muscle and burns fat. It delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) pulses to the muscle tissue, creating supramaximal muscle contractions that activate more muscle fibers than what you can achieve through normal exercise, along with radiofrequency (RF) heat. 

This nonsurgical treatment can tighten, tone, and strengthen the large muscle groups of the abdomen and buttocks as well as of smaller body areas, including the upper arms, thighs, and calves. The result is increased muscle definition and reduced circumference.

Emsculpt Neo, launched in fall 2020, is a next-generation, FDA-cleared device that combines enhanced HIFEM technology (delivering up to 20% more electromagnetic pulses than the original) with RF energy in the form of heat, to burn fat more effectively.

Emsculpt Neo can treat all the same areas as the original device, and it recently gained FDA clearance for lipolysis (fat reduction) of the thighs. Treatment of the butt, arms, and calves is typically done without heat, to avoid the volume loss that would come with fat reduction.

Treatment Plan: Four sessions, once a week for four weeks. 

Emsculpt Neo can also reduce muscle separation in the abs, a symptom of diastasis recti, a condition where your abdominal muscles separate (usually during pregnancy) and create a belly pooch. It’s the only nonsurgical treatment shown to be effective in treating abdominal separation. While doctors on RealSelf recommend a tummy tuck for people with significant separation, they say Emsculpt can be a good option for avoiding surgery.

Body Contouring:   Emtone

One 30-minute Emsculpt Neo session produces nearly 24,000 muscle contractions.

  • Treatments are nonsurgical, with no anesthesia required and no downtime afterward.

  • Both treatments come with the dual advantage of toning muscles and reducing fat. They're a good option for people who want a more sculpted, defined physique and stronger muscles.

  • They're suitable for all skin types and tones, with no reported side effects other than some temporary muscle soreness (like you'd feel after an intensive workout).

  • Emsculpt Neo offers even better muscle building and fat reduction results; it has also been clinically shown to reduce fat more effectively than fat freezing treatments like CoolSculpting

  • Just four treatments can yield visible results, and a majority of RealSelf members who've had the treatment say it's “Worth It.” Many report seeing an impressive increase in muscle tone, and some also say they felt a boost in strength that helped them achieve more during their workouts. 


If you have skin laxity, a nonsurgical treatment or plastic surgery to remove excess skin will be more effective options.

If cellulite is your primary concern, Emtone can be added on.

For body contouring, Emtone may be part of a comprehensive approach to reducing fat, building, muscle, and improving skin texture.


Emtone may be used following fat reduction procedures such as liposuction,  Emsculpting, CoolSculpting, or Vanquish.

What is EMTONE?

Emtone is an innovative, nonsurgical cellulite reduction treatment designed to improve dimples, ripples, and other visible characteristics of cellulite. Many people are under the impression that cellulite only affects overweight individuals. In reality, however, even thin people who exercise regularly can struggle with cellulite. While both men and women can develop cellulite, it is much more common in women.


By applying pressure to the skin’s surface and delivering specialized radiofrequency energy beneath the skin, EMTONE can dramatically reduce the size of fat cells, stimulate circulation, and prevent fluid accumulation to help smooth out cellulite. Another exciting aspect of EMTONE is that there is  no downtime. Patients may experience mild redness following the procedure, but this typically resolves quickly on its own.
