What are Emsculpt Neo, EmTone, and Taut & Toned?
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 permanently and build muscle. Basically, the RF safely damages fat cells in the treated area so that over time, the body metabolizes and eliminates them forever. 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. Also, a side effect of the RF is more collagen production, which makes for tauter skin in the treated area.
EmTone is the world’s first and only non-invasive device to provide effective treatment of cellulite with no downtime. At the same time, it provides the best skin tightening results from any non-invasive device. It uses a combination of RF and targeted pressure energy (TPE) to decongest fat cells, regenerate and produce new collagen and elastin fibers, improve blood flow, and remove metabolic waste through lymphatic drainage. The improved skin elasticity and texture makes skin tighter and improves the appearance of cellulite.
Doing Emsculpt Neo and EmTone on the same area is a program called Taut & Toned. You get all the benefits of each device and more! Basically, when you do EmTone after Emsculpt Neo, it improves and speeds up your results. EmTone’s ability to do lymphatic drainage means we can help the body remove fat cells faster and better. All you have to do is lay back and let your technician and the machines 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 surgical 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 happens to the damaged fat cells?
Emsculpt Neo works 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 macrophages, which are a type of white blood cell, remove the damaged cells, move them through the liver and kidneys, and eliminate them from the body through natural processes over time.
What do you mean when you say there’s no downtime?
It means that instead of going home to rest and recover after treatment, you can do whatever you want including go back to your usual routine. There is no need for recovery.
How many treatments will I need?
For Emsculpt Neo, we recommend at least a package of 4 treatments to get you the results cited in clinical studies (30% fat loss and 25% more muscle, on average). That being said, the number of treatments you need will depend on your body type and goals. Some people are happier with 6 or more treatments on the same area. In general, when you do more treatments, you get better results.
For EmTone, again we recommend at least a package of 4 treatments. Like Emsculpt Neo, some people may benefit from more treatments depending on their body type and goals. We’ll discuss your budget and goals during the free consultation and make a plan together.
How much does Taut & Toned cost?
Cost depends on how many treatments you need and the monthly deals we’re offering. What we can say is that Emsculpt Neo and EmTone are premium technologies and these treatments are an investment in you. We suggest booking a free consultation. During the free consultation, we’ll discuss the improvements you wish to see, look at your body, determine how many treatments you’ll need, review before/after photos, and provide a detailed quote.

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), we use a setting that just builds muscle and tightens skin. For the glutes, this creates a “butt lift” effect and rounds out the glutes.
With EmTone, we can treat the upper arms, abdomen, love handles, bum, and all sections of the thighs. A general rule is that we need to focus on muscle groups/fleshy parts and stay away from bone.
If you’re interested in reducing fat and/or tightening skin in different areas, we have great success with another device called Exilis Ultra. We can use this device literally anywhere on the body.
How long will it take to realize results?
During the weeks that you’re doing Emsculpt Neo treatments, you may notice changes in your body – you’ll start looking slimmer and more toned. Without doing EmTone for the Taut & Toned program, it takes 3 months after completing your treatments to realize final results.
For Taut & Toned, we start EmTone one week after you’ve completed your Emsculpt Neo treatments. You’ll probably notice changes in the weeks that you’re doing EmTone treatments including less fat, more muscle tone, tauter skin, and smoother skin texture. You’ll get better results faster than if you only do Emsculpt Neo.
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 Taut & Toned?
Anyone who wants to become slimmer and more toned with tauter and smoother skin can do Taut & Toned. Our technologies are 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 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 health risk. It reduces visceral fat by an average of 19% (more than originally thought).
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. We block off an hour, but it doesn’t always take that long. Before the consult, you complete our intake form. During the consult, we’ll review the intake form together to ensure that you’re a good candidate for Taut & Toned. We also fill you in on what to expect and answer any questions. If you’re ready to move forward, you sign our Client Agreements, 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! We encourage clients to exercise and eat well during the Taut & Toned program for best results.
Are you sure that Taut & Toned is safe?
In the world of medical aesthetics, Emsculpt Neo and EmTone are considered very safe. Like all of our technologies, they are approved by Health Canada and our technicians are trained and certified to operate the devices.
Are there any scary side effects?
If you’re thinking about the Linda Evangelista CoolSculpting debacle, don’t worry! Our technologies are totally different from CoolSculpting. There is zero risk of PAH and fat cells multiplying with our technologies. 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 Agreements.
What does it feel like?
Let’s just say that both Emsculpt Neo and EmTone are an interesting experience! With Emsculpt Neo, the RF warms up the area and the HIFEM causes muscle contractions. Most clients would say it feels intense. With EmTone, again the RF warms up the area and the TPE causes strong mechanical vibrations. Many people enjoy this sensation. We adjust the settings on the device to prioritize client comfort, which is why we always ask for feedback during treatments. 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. If you have visible body hair in the area we’re treating, we will have asked you to shave beforehand. 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, and we either strap the applicators to you (in the case of Emsculpt Neo) or apply ultrasound lotion and perform treatment (in the case of EmTone). Emsculpt Neo treatments are only 30 minutes each and you are welcome to watch Netflix on our smart TV. EmTone treatments are about 20 minutes.
