What the heck is Emsculpt Neo and what’s with all the hype? Unless you follow developments in the world of medical aesthetics and wellness, it’s unlikely that you’d know the answer to this question. We’ve heard many different versions of this question here at Body Works Med Spa & Wellness. As the go-to provider for Emsculpt Neo in Halifax, we’re going to answer it in this article. Let’s dig in!
What Is Body Contouring?
First, it’s important to understand the term “body contouring” as a sub-industry of medical aesthetics. Body contouring is about changing the shape of the body. Its origins are in plastic surgery – think: liposuction. Over time, pharmaceutical companies started developing energy-based devices that also contour the body by tightening skin and reducing fat. We realize this sounds too good to be true, but we assure you it’s true. We’ll get into the science of it below.
With technological advances, pharmaceutical companies have developed many devices to be totally non-invasive, which makes body contouring procedures much easier and more convenient than surgery. In general, it means you don’t have to stay home to heal for weeks on end after doing a procedure.
CoolSculpting is a well-recognized type of non-invasive body contouring because it has been around for decades and in general, it works. If you’re a good candidate and your technician is well-trained, you’re likely to achieve fat reduction in the treated area (the average is 22% fat reduction).
Pharmaceutical companies have also made some body contouring devices more effective, safer, and with shorter treatment times. When you add the innovation of muscle-building into the equation, you get Emsculpt Neo. We were thrilled to be among the first providers of Emsculpt Neo in Halifax.
What is Emsculpt Neo?
Emsculpt Neo is the first non-invasive body contouring device to marry medical aesthetics with wellness. Unlike other body contouring procedures, it is simultaneously effective at reducing fat and building muscle. Imagine! Not only is this an amazing development, but you don’t have to go to Toronto to get this latest and greatest non-invasive procedure – you can get Emsculpt Neo in Halifax.
Furthermore, Emsculpt Neo delivers the best results in both categories of fat reduction and muscle-building. It reduces fat by the greatest average margin and builds more muscle, and builds it more effectively, than any other device. For example, on the abdomen, Emsculpt Neo reduces fat by an average of 30% and builds an average of 25% more muscle. And remember, it does this with zero downtime! Not to mention, there’s no possibility of getting a lumpy outcome like with CoolSculpting. You just pop into the clinic for a 30-minute treatment then go about your day as usual.
It’s also worth noting that Emsculpt Neo is the most studied non-invasive body contouring device on the market. There are dozens of clinical studies and many of them evaluated results through use of MRI. While copycat devices are popping up, none of them are as well studied, effective, or efficient. The global medical aesthetics community now recognizes Emsculpt Neo as the best body shaping technology in the world. In fact, it gets awards for exactly that! We can also say that Emsculpt Neo in Halifax is becoming quite popular.
How Does Emsculpt Neo Work?
So, how on earth do you reduce fat, for example, with a machine? We can’t speak for every device because many of them work differently. However, we can speak for Emsculpt Neo.
Emsculpt Neo uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity-focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energies. Basically, the RF energy heats the treatment area to a temperature that safely damages fat cells. Over the course of about 3 months, the body metabolizes and permanently eliminates these damaged fat cells (some devices only shrink fat cells temporarily).
At the same time, Emsculpt Neo’s HIFEM energy creates supramaximal muscle contractions. This is a type of muscle contraction that the body cannot achieve on its own; the HIFEM by-passes the brain’s limitations! Supramaximal contractions strengthen existing muscle fibers and build new muscle fibers.
When it comes to losing fat, most people automatically understand the appeal. We all want our clothes to fit better, we want to feel more confident on the beach, and we want to minimize those stubborn fat pockets that never seem to go away despite a healthy diet and exercise. It’s the muscle-building part that makes Emsculpt Neo that much more attractive.
Building Muscle With Emsculpt Neo In Halifax
From an aesthetic perspective, creating visible muscle tone is a draw for many. From a wellness perspective, there are several benefits associated with improved health and quality of life. For example, Emsculpt Neo’s muscle-building ability improves diastasis recti, which is the separation of abdominal muscles that happens with pregnancy and other life events in both women and men. The statistic is a 19% improvement on average.
To put this into context, we’ve had clients with diastasis recti go from rolling out of bed in the morning to sitting up out of bed because of Emsculpt Neo. We’ve also had clients who can’t do the physical aspects of their jobs easily or even safely due to diastatis recti. After doing Emsculpt Neo in Halifax, they’re effective at their jobs again. Talk about life-changing!
Emsculpt Neo’s supramaximal contractions also work to reduce visceral fat, which is a type of abdominal fat that is hard in texture and poses serious health risks. In fact, Emsculpt is the only technology known to reduce visceral fat at all; other devices only treat softer subcutaneous fat. Liposuction can’t even remove visceral fat! Emsculpt Neo reduces visceral fat by an average of 14%.
More Stories About People Doing Emsculpt Neo In Halifax
Adding muscle mass delivers so many benefits that it’s difficult to name them all. To name a few more, it helps you maintain a healthy weight, decreases the likelihood of developing obesity, improves athletic performance, lowers risk of injury, improves posture, and helps to maintain independence while aging. Stronger muscles even relieve pain associated with weakness and instability.
One of our clients used to get migraines after lifting weights. After doing Emsculpt Neo on her arms, she was able to work on her upper body fitness without getting migraines. One of our postpartum clients used to routinely experience debilitating pain in her back and pelvis even though she was already strong and fit. Now, she’s pain-free thanks to Emsculpt Neo in Halifax.
The fact that all kinds of celebrities use Emsculpt technology and share their experiences on social media is also cause for hype around this device. Jennifer Lopez, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian, Olivia Culpo, Drew Barrymore, and Carmen Electra are just a few of the celebrities that use and love it.
What’s even cooler is that you can combine Emsculpt Neo treatments with treatments from other devices for additional benefits. For example, when you combine Emsculpt Neo on the abdomen with Emsella for the pelvic floor, you get Core to Floor Therapy. This is the world’s first and only whole core treatment. When you combine Emsculpt Neo with EmTone, you get Taut & Toned. Taut & Toned is a body contouring program that simultaneously eliminates fat faster, tightens skin, and smooths cellulite. Body Works Med Spa & Wellness is the only provider of both Core to Floor and Taut & Toned in Atlantic Canada.
What To Expect With Emsculpt Neo In Halifax
Just like every innovation, Emsculpt Neo has its limitations. It’s perfect for people looking for a health and fitness kick-start, maintenance regimen, want to get trim for an upcoming event, bounce back from extended downtime, and push for a new level of athletic performance. Emsculpt Neo is not perfect for people with expectations of a typical surgical outcome.
At Body Works Med Spa & Wellness, our mission is to use state-of-the-art non-invasive technologies to help clients look and feel slimmer, fitter, and younger while enhancing their quality of life – with no surgery or downtime. If we can’t use our technology to deliver on your goal, we’ll be upfront about that and suggest other options.
It’s also important to understand that you play a role in your body contouring outcome. You’ll get optimal results if your weight is stable, you drink lots of water to stay hydrated, and exercise on a weekly basis (ex. go for walks). On the flip side, your results may not be visible if you gain weight during your treatment series, don’t drink enough water, and don’t exercise at all.
Last but not least, Emsculpt Neo can only treat areas where there are muscle groups. This includes the abdomen, glutes, biceps, triceps, thighs, and calves. Sometimes people come to Body Works Med Spa & Wellness wanting fat reduction in a different area. Fortunately, we have a different solution for them. Exilis Ultra is another device that’s made by the same pharmaceutical company. While it doesn’t build muscle, we’ve had great success using it to reduce fat in those harder-to-reach areas. We can use it practically anywhere on the body.
