Benefits of Emsculpt NEO
Emsculpt NEO is an advanced, FDA- and Health Canada-approved technology that can help you build muscle and burn fat simultaneously without undergoing strenuous exercises or surgery. With Emsculpt NEO, you can target specific areas of your body such as your abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks, and sculpt them into your desired shape.
There are plenty of reasons why we love Emsculpt NEO:
- Clinical studies showed an average 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat, and a muscle volume increase of 25%—a double-duty treatment with results you can see and feel
- Treatments are quick and simple, and only take a lunch break per session
- This is a non-invasive procedure—no need for anesthesia or surgery
- There is no downtime, so you can head straight back to work or your other activities
During an Emsculpt NEO treatment session, the device emits HIFEM+, which uses a powerful but harmless form of electromagnetic stimulation to contract the muscles in a targeted area. How exactly does HIFEM+ work? To answer that question, it’s important to understand the science behind muscle contractions. Muscles contract when electrical signals are sent from the brain to the muscle fibers. These signals cause the fibers to contract, which in turn causes the muscle to move.
Emsculpt NEO uses a similar principle to stimulate muscle contractions, but instead of relying on signals from the brain, it uses electromagnetic energy to directly stimulate the muscles. The HIFEM energy creates an electromagnetic field that penetrates the skin, passing electrical currents to the muscles in the targeted area. This energy causes the muscles to contract and release rapidly. These involuntary contractions are more intense than what can be achieved through voluntary muscle movements. Ultimately, this stimulates muscle growth and strengthens the targeted muscles.
At the same time, the Emsculpt NEO device also emits radiofrequency energy, which adds heat to the tissues in the area and boosts blood supply to the muscles for a more efficacious muscle toning treatment. The RF energy is also able to heat up the layers of fat cells in the area, causing them to physically break down. These fat cells get naturally metabolized by your body, and then flushed through your lymphatic system. This process results in reduced fat and increased muscle mass in the treated area.
