Confused about the difference between EMSculpt and EMSculpt Neo? We’ll walk through the main similarities and differences between these two body-sculpting techniques. This will give you all the facts you need to select the right treatment.
Although both procedures have the power to burn body fat while building muscle mass at the same time they differ in terms of the effects. They also differ significantly when it comes to the type of technology, they use to tone up your body and burn through your fat.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is the only procedure that helps patients build muscle and sculpt the body. In addition, Emsculpt provides the world’s first non-invasive buttock toning procedure.
What is Emsculpt NEO?
EMSCULPT NEO builds off the legacy of its predecessor, Emsculpt, by simultaneously emitting both radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies.
The result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard procedure, for less time and less money.
How Do They Work?
The original Emsculpt machine is based on only high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy.
On average Emsculpt results are:
- Fat reduction: 19%
- Muscle building: 16%
- Abdominal separation reduced: 14%
- Waist circumference reduction: 4cm
Emsculpt NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies.
On average Emsculpt Neo results are:
- Fat reduction: 30%
- Muscle building: 25%
- Abdominal separation reduced: 19%
- Waist circumference reduction: 5.9cm
Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warmup activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat.*
Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibres 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 fibres and cells. Clinical studies showed on average a 25% muscle volume increase.*
Who is suitable for Emsculpt NEO treatment?
As Emsculpt Neo is extremely effective in combined fat reduction and muscle-toning, it is ideal for patients who want to redefine their bodies with maximum efficiency. Its advanced ability to burn through fat makes it an ideal choice for patients with a little more fat to shift. Unlike many other fat reduction treatments, the Emsculpt Neo is able to treat patients with up to 35 BMI.
What Areas Can be Treated with Emsculpt NEO?
Emsculpt Neo is cleared for treatment in NINE areas:
- Outer Thighs
- Inner Thighs
- Front Thighs
- Back Thighs
