What is Emsculpt Neo? How can I melt fat, build muscle, and tighten skin?
Emsculpt Neo is the most advanced body contouring device in the world. It uses a combination of radiofrequency energy (RF) and high intensity-focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to reduce fat, build muscle, and tighten skin. Basically, the RF safely damages fat cells in the treated area so that over time, the body metabolizes and eliminates them permanently. The HIFEM creates muscle contractions to strengthen existing muscle fibers and build new muscle fibers. On average, clinical studies show 30% fat reduction and 25% more muscle. Emsculpt Neo even repairs diastasis recti by an average of 19%. Also, a side effect of the RF is more collagen production, which makes for tauter skin in the treated area. All you have to do is lay back and let the machine do the work!
What do you mean when you say Emsculpt Neo ‘permanently’ reduces fat?
The body has a set number of fat cells after puberty. When you gain or lose weight, these fat cells either expand or shrink. When you remove fat cells entirely – whether it’s with Emsculpt Neo or liposuction – they’re gone for good. You can still gain weight, but the visibility of your weight gain will be proportionate to the distribution of your fat cells.
What do you mean there’s no downtime?
We mean you don’t have to take time off to recover and you don’t have to be embarrassed to go out in public after treatments. You can go about your routine as normal.
How many treatments will I need?
Clinical studies show that with a series of 4 treatments, there’s an average of 30% fat loss and 25% more muscle. That’s why we recommend a minimum of 4 treatments. Since these figures are averages, some people are happier with 6 or more treatments on the same area. In general, when you do more treatments, you get better results. We’ll discuss your budget and goals during the free consultation and make a plan together.
What areas can I treat?
We have Emsculpt Neo applicators to treat the abdomen, glutes, arms (biceps & triceps), inner thighs, outer thighs, front thighs, back thighs, and calves. For the areas where people typically don’t want to lose fat (like the glutes) or areas where people typically don’t hold fat (like the calves), we use a setting that only builds muscle and tightens skin. If you’re interested in reducing fat and/or tightening skin in a different area, we have great success with another device called Exilis Ultra. We can use this device literally anywhere on the body.
How much does Emsculpt Neo cost?
Emsculpt Neo is less costly and safer than surgery, with none of the pain or downtime of surgery. It’s also the only procedure that effectively builds muscle (surgery can’t even do this). When it comes to non-invasive body contouring, there’s a range of options and price points. Less expensive technologies typically produce less visible results and more expensive technologies typically produce more visible results. Emsculpt Neo results are second to none. For most areas, the full price of a single treatment is $850 + HST. We offer monthly deals on packages along with quantity deals. For a treatment plan and detailed quote, contact us for a free virtual or in-person consultation.
How long will it take to realize results?
During the weeks that you’re doing Emsculpt Neo treatments, you’ll probably notice changes in your body – you’ll start looking slimmer, more toned, and tauter. However, it takes 3 months after completing your treatments to realize final results. We always invite clients back 3 months after completing treatments to do a final before/after comparison. This is an exciting opportunity to review your results together.
Who can do Emsculpt Neo?
Anyone who wants to slim down and/or strengthen their abdomen, butt, arms, thighs, and calves can do Emsculpt Neo. It is Health Canada-approved for women and men of all ages, skin tones, and shapes. There are some contraindications, however. For example, we cannot proceed with treatment if you have a metal implant in the area of interest. This is one reason why it’s important to do a free consultation before you book treatments.
What type of fat does Emsculpt Neo treat?
Other non-invasive devices treat subcutaneous fat only. Subcutaneous fat is that soft, pinchable fat that lays just under the skin. Unlike other devices, Emsculpt Neo works on both subcutaneous and visceral fat. Visceral fat is the harder, deeper abdominal fat that wraps around the organs and poses a greater risk to your health. It reduces visceral fat by an average of 14%.
What happens during a free consultation and how long does it take?
At Body Works, we offer free consultations that can be done either virtually or in-person at our clinic. Before the consult, you complete our intake form. During the consult, we’ll review it together to ensure that you’re a good candidate for Emsculpt Neo. We also fill you in on what to expect, review before & after photos, and answer any questions. This usually takes no more than 45 minutes. When you’re ready to move forward, you sign our client agreement, we book your treatment times, and arrange payment.
How does payment work?
At Body Works, we generally accept payment upfront in order to lock in the deals we’re offering at the time. We also partner with PayBright so that if you prefer, you can pay in lower monthly instalments. This option comes with a financing fee. The interest rate is as low as 0% depending on your credit score. Click here to pre-qualify with PayBright.
Does Emsculpt Neo replace a healthy lifestyle?
Exercise and a balanced diet are essential to overall health and wellness. They give us benefits that we can’t get any other way! Emsculpt Neo is an incredible option if you’re looking to reduce fat, build muscle, and tighten skin without surgery or downtime. We encourage clients to exercise and eat well in conjunction with Emsculpt Neo for best results.
Are you sure it’s safe?
In the world of medical aesthetics, Emsculpt Neo is considered very safe. Like all of our technologies, it’s is approved by Health Canada and our technicians are trained and certified to operate the device.
Are there any scary side effects?
If you’re thinking about the Linda Evangelista CoolSculpting debacle, don’t worry! Emsculpt Neo is a completely different technology from Coolsculpting. There is zero risk of PAH and fat cells multiplying. Emsculpt Neo is considered very safe. That being said, there is risk with any medical grade procedure. We’d be happy to speak with you about these risks during a free consultation. They are also outlined in our client agreement.
What happens to the damaged fat cells? How do they go away?
Emsculpt Neo and other non-invasive fat reduction procedures work because of apoptosis. This is a natural process of programmed cell death. For example, apoptosis takes place during early development to eliminate unwanted cells, like the cells between the fingers of a fetus’ developing hand. In the context of doing Emsculpt Neo, the machine’s energy safely damages fat cells. Then over time, a type of white blood cell called macrophages remove the damaged cells, move them through the liver and kidneys, and eliminate them from the body through natural processes.
What does it feel like?
Because of the muscle contractions, most people find that Emsculpt Neo feels intense. The abdomen is the most intense area to treat, while many find that the other areas are fairly comfortable. Treatment should never be painful.
What is the treatment like from start to finish?
Once you enter the treatment room, we ask you to remove any metal and electronics from your body. If you have visible body hair in the area we’re treating, we will have asked you to shave the area in advance. We take a weight, circumference measurement, and photos – all of these things help us evaluate results in the end. Then you lay or sit down, we strap the applicators on you, turn on the machine, and gradually increase the intensity while making sure that you feel okay. Treatments are only 30 minutes each and you’re welcome to watch Netflix on our smart TV. We can also hang out and keep you company.
