Burn fat and build muscle with this groundbreaking non-invasive treatment

Just a few years back, if someone had told us it would be possible to simultaneously eliminate stubborn fat and build muscle with the click of a button, we’d probably have said they were crazy.

But since 2020, when the pioneering BTL Aesthetics launched the Emsculpt Neo, it’s been a reality!

Okay, it’s not quite as simple as a click of a button. But it’s not far off.

So what is Emsculpt Neo? It’s a non-invasive body-contouring treatment that has quickly earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the safest and easiest ways to improve your physique. 

It’s the successor to BTL’s original and revolutionary body contouring treatment, Emsculpt, which celebrities like Drew Barrymore have been openly singing the praises of for years – and it’s easy to see why when you know what the technology is capable of. 

The Emsculpt Neo took the technology a step further, and is the world’s first FDA-approved procedure for eliminating fat cells non-invasively. It’s also the only technology in the world that can achieve both fat reduction and muscle creation in one single treatment. 

There are a lot of before and after pictures around that do a great job of showing the results of Emsculpt Neo, but we want to explain the whats, the whens, and the hows to you as well… 

So, here’s everything you’ve been wanting to know about the Emsculpt Neo.

What exactly is Emsculpt Neo? 

Emsculpt Neo is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for eliminating stubborn fat and building muscle – all in the one treatment. 

It’s the first and only body-shaping procedure of its kind – combining high-intensity focused electromagnetic field technology (HIFEM) with radiofrequency energy (RF), to simultaneously dissolve stubborn fat while building and strengthening muscle. 

Emsculpt Neo is suited for the following areas of the body: 

  • abdomen
  • buttocks
  • arms
  • calves
  • thighs

…a.k.a the areas where, despite committed hours in the gym, fat often loves to stubbornly stay put and muscles can remain disappointingly undefined.

Treatment usually involves four 30-minute sessions, each about a week apart, during which the device induces the equivalent of a mind-blowing 24,000 muscle contractions while the heat generated by the RF energy simultaneously, and permanently, breaks down fat cells.

The result? Emsculpt Neo has been proven to reduce fat in the treated area by up to 30%, while increasing muscle by 25% – an unprecedented achievement for a non-invasive treatment.

Is Emsculpt Neo suited to everyone?

Not quite, but almost! Emsculpt Neo is FDA approved for anyone with a BMI up to 35, and there’s no age limit – so it’s a very accessible body-shaping treatment.

However, it’s not suited to pregnant women, and it’s off-limits to anyone with any kind of implanted medical device or metal in their bodies – e.g. a pacemaker, screws, or copper IUDs.

It’s also important to note that Emsculpt Neo is not a weight-loss treatment. It’s a fat-burning treatment, which is very different.

The ideal candidates, and those who will see the best results from Emsculpt Neo, are therefore people who already have a good level of health and fitness, who just want a helping hand with certain areas of the body. 

And because Emsculpt Neo can help shift stubborn areas of fat that diet or exercise seem unable to tackle, build and define all core muscle groups, as well as strengthen the core – which can in turn help with back or postural issues – it truly is equally well-suited to a wide range of people: men and woman, all ages, and to address a wide range of body concerns.

Does Emsculpt Neo hurt? What happens during a session? 

One of the best things about Emsculpt Neo is that it’s totally non-invasive and pain-free. There’s no need for any anaesthetic or numbing, there’s absolutely zero downtime, and no kind of medication will be needed… 

You can essentially consider your Emsculpt Neo treatment as an alternative to a gym visit. Arrive, “work-out”, and carry on your day!

During each session, your technician will strap the device to or around the area you’re treating, and then gradually turn up the frequency to reach the optimal point for your body. 

You’ll feel a combination of mild heat from the radiofrequency and vibrations from the HIFEM – some patients find the vibrations more intense than others, but it’s pretty much universally agreed that while it may not always be the most pleasant sensation, it’s far from painful or unbearable. 

There are also next to no side effects. Often people are a little sweaty in the treated area immediately after the treatment, and your muscles are likely to feel a little sore for the next day or so – just as with a normal workout. But this is a side-effect most people find satisfying: proof that it’s working, not to mention a satisfying post-workout burn without having had to do the workout! 

When will I see results from my Emsculpt Neo treatment?

Emsculpt Neo is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates and utilizes the body’s natural processes to eliminate fat and build muscle. So rather than a fat-reduction surgery such as lipsuction where you’ll notice the difference immediately after the procedure, with Emsculpt Neo the results appear gradually.

Most treatment plans consist of four 30-minute sessions over the course of four to six weeks, and the most noticeable results come once the full course of treatment has finished. 

It’s common to start feeling the results from your Emsculpt Neo treatment quite quickly, often immediately after your second treatment – better core strength, balance, less fatigue when working out the area you’re treating… 

The physical, noticeable results of fat reduction and increased muscle then normally start to become apparent a few weeks after treatment ends, and they’ll continue to improve for up to six months after.

Because the results are so gradual, we always recommend taking before and after photos to track your Emsculpt Neo treatment – you might not notice the difference looking in the mirror every day, but you’ll definitely notice it when comparing photos taken a few months apart!

How long do Emsculpt Neo results last?

The fat-busting results of Emsculpt Neo are permanent! The fat that is dissolved during your treatment will be gone for good. However, that’s not to say that new fat can’t develop, so it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise if you want to keep it off. 

The newly defined muscle usually lasts anywhere between six months to a year, although it will depend hugely on each individual’s diet and fitness regime. Muscles require maintenance, so unfortunately – especially because the 23,000+ contractions from the Emsculpt Neo aren’t possible to maintain independently – these results will never be permanent. But they can be well maintained so long as you continue to work out, and additional Emsculpt Neo maintenance sessions after about a year will keep the results lasting even longer.

How much does Emsculpt Neo cost?

As with all treatments, exact costs will vary depending on where you go, and your individual needs.

However, one Emsculpt Neo session will typically cost around $850, meaning you’re looking at about $3,400 for the full four sessions. 

If you live in or around Cleveland, here at BodyTonic Med Spa we offer a reduced package price when paying for the four sessions together, and we even include Emsculpt Neo maintenance sessions as a free treatment choice in our top-tier membership program – making it as affordable as possible for you to ensure your Emsculpt Neo results are long-lasting.
