Emsculpt NEO is the world-leading fat-burning and muscle-building non-invasive treatment. It is a cosmetic treatment used to eliminate fat cells and build muscle in specific parts of your body. Emsculpt NEO is the perfect way to remove stubborn fat whilst building muscle. In this article we’ll talk about how the Emsculpt NEO treatment process works.
Emsculpt NEO is:
- FDA approved
- Clinically proven to be safe and effective
Compared to other surgical fat reduction procedures such as liposuction, Emsculpt NEO carries fewer risks and does not require any downtime after treatment.
This guide will explain how the Emsculpt NEO process works, including the areas of the body that can be treated and how many treatments you may need.
This page includes the following:
- How does fat leave the body after Emsculpt NEO?
- What type of fat does Emsculpt NEO treat?
- How is muscle built with Emsculpt NEO?
- Which areas of the body can Emsculpt NEO be used on?

How does fat leave the body after Emsculpt NEO?
Many patients like to know how the Emsculpt NEO treatment process works, how the fat leaves the body after Emsculpt NEO and when they expect to see results.
The Emsculpt NEO procedure works by targeting fat cells beneath the skin in the treated area by heating them to the level that cause apoptosis. Heating fat cells in this way triggers fat cell death and can reduce fat deposits by up to 30% in the treated area.
After the treatment, treated fat cells are permanently damaged and are naturally metabolized by your liver before being eliminated by your body. Emsculpt NEO is a permanent procedure as, once the fat cells are destroyed, they do not come back.
Unlike liposuction, Emsculpt NEO is not a surgical procedure so it does not require any downtime and is non-invasive. This makes it the perfect way for many people to remove unwanted fat and build muscle.
What type of fat does Emsculpt NEO treat?
Emsculpt NEO is a fat reduction treatment that can be used to treat both types of fat found in our bodies.
Our bodies contain:
- Visceral fat: this type of fat surrounds the organs, is known to be more of a health risk then other types of fat and is stored within the abdominal cavity.
- Subcutaneous fat: this is the soft fat you can pull and grab and, for most people, makes up 90% of the fat in their bodies.
Emsculpt NEO can be used to treat both visceral and subcutaneous fat.
To understand whether you’re a good candidate for Emsculpt NEO, your consultant should discuss it in further detail with you during an initial assessment.
How is muscle built with Emsculpt NEO?
Emsculpt NEO is a muscle-building treatment with its HIFEM+ technology.
By bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during a voluntary workout.
Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. Clinical studies showed on average a 25% muscle volume increase.*
Which areas of the body can Emsculpt NEO be used on?
To have the Emsculpt NEO treatment, you only need to be wanting to benefit from less fat and more muscle. Only certain areas of the body can be treated, including:
- Outer thighs
- Inner thighs
- Backs of thighs
- Front of thighs
Before undergoing treatment, an initial consultation will be required to discuss the area you would like to treat and the results you would like to see. You will then be advised on how many treatment sessions may be required and the results you can expect to see.
How many Emsculpt NEO treatments are necessary?
The number of Emsculpt NEO treatment sessions you will need is decided on an individual basis and you will require a consultation or initial assessment before undergoing treatment.
However, the gold standard number of treatments is at least four.
The number of Emsculpt NEO sessions needed depends on several factors including:
- The area being treated
- The results you would like to see
It can take up to three months after treatment to see the full fat reduction and increase in muscle in the treated area as it takes time for your body to eliminate the treated fat cells as well as build the muscle.
Emsculpt NEO is not a weight loss procedure. It provides a way to remove stubborn fat once you have reached or are close to your ideal weight through exercise and a healthy diet. This will also help you to achieve the best results with fewer treatments.
