EMSCULPT: build muscle and burn fat quickly

Posted at:

How many times have you looked in the mirror and wondered how you could lose that ‘stubborn’ fat and finally define your muscles?

How many times have you felt frustrated with diets and physical exercise that didn’t bring the desired results?

Imagine if you could get rid of that stubborn love handle around your waist and finally have the flat, toned stomach you’ve always wanted… Or if you could have firmer, rounded buttocks, more sculpted legs and toned arms without having to spend months or years on end in the gym! With Emsculpt NEO, this is possible.

Emsculpt NEO is the latest technology for fat loss and muscle toning. This revolutionary Bodysculpt treatment will do for you, in just a few sessions, what you haven’t been able to do in your entire life.

Basically, it’s like doing 20,000 sit-ups or squats in just half an hour and without any effort.

In this article we will explain everything you need to know about Emsculpt (and more specifically Emsculpt NEO) and clarify all your doubts.

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt NEO is a state-of-the-art body remodeling treatment (known as the #1 Body Shaping treatment) that uses high-intensity electromagnetic waves (HIFEM+) to stimulate muscle contraction, as well as radiofrequency to eliminate fat and improve skin texture.

This technology was developed by renowned scientists and approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

What is the difference between Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO?

The difference between the two procedures is that EMSculpt NEO combines 2 energies simultaneously: radiofrequency and HIFEM (high intensity electromagnetic waves). This promotes greater fat reduction and greater muscle strengthening, in addition to using more advanced technology. Naturally, Emsculpt NEO provides better results and is the one that Living Clinic uses.

From now on, whenever we talk about Emsculpt, we are referring to NEO.

To whom is it recommended?

Emsculpt NEO is indicated for men and women who want to reduce fat and increase muscle mass in specific areas of the body. It is an effective treatment for people who want to improve their physical fitness and self-esteem, but who cannot achieve results with diet and exercise.

The best results appear in people with a BMI of up to 35, but it is not exclusive to this group.

How does it work?

Emsculpt NEO uses high-intensity electromagnetic waves (HIFEM+) to stimulate muscle contraction. During treatment, the device is placed over the area to be treated and sends electrical impulses to the muscles. These impulses stimulate muscle fibers, causing intense muscle contractions (supramaximal contractions). The muscles in the treated area are contracted at intensities that are not achievable during routine physical exercise. The result is the elimination of fat and an increase in muscle mass.

Additionally, Emsculpt NEO uses radiofrequency to heat and eliminate fat cells, which are then removed by the body.

What body areas can be treated with Emsculpt?

Emsculpt NEO can be applied to the following areas of the body: abdominal area, glutes / buttocks, thigh (inner or outer part), arms (biceps and triceps) and calves.

Does Emsculpt Neo really work?

According to several authors of articles published in scientific journals, definitely yes. More than 30 scientific publications make HIFEM the most intensely researched and used technology in body sculpting since its introduction in 2018.

Furthermore, consistency in eliminating fat and/or building muscle has been demonstrated in all clinical studies carried out and there is an average satisfaction of 96% among patients who have undergone these treatments.

When can we see results?

This is the best part! There is an immediate perception immediately after treatment. The most visible results are usually reported 2 to 4 weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks after treatments.

What results can be expected?

An average reduction of 30% in localized fat and a 25% increase in muscle mass has been proven.

The results of Emsculpt NEO are long-lasting, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, with a balanced diet and regular physical activity.

How many sessions are necessary?

Emsculpt treatment has a minimum of 6 sessions scheduled 5-10 days apart. A treatment plan is created adapted to each person’s individual goals.

How long is each session?

Each Emsculpt NEO session lasts approximately 30 minutes.

What is the difference in between Emsculpt NEO and other muscular electrostimulation technology?

  • Penetration depth: in Emsculpt NEO the depth is much greater, meaning the results are much more effective;
  • Muscle electrical stimulation is equivalent to light physical exercise, while Emsculpt can eliminate fat and generate muscle contractions at a rate that physical exercise cannot;
  • It is not possible to achieve results similar to those that Emsculpt achieves with electrical muscle stimulation.

Does Emsculpt hurt?

Emsculpt doesn’t hurt. You will only feel a slight warming sensation. No type of anesthesia is even necessary.

Emsculpt and Coolsculpting

At Living Clinic we have developed protocols to combine EMSculpt NEO with other cutting-edge technology systems. One example is our protocol that combines EMSculpt NEO with Coolsculpting. We are the first and only clinic in Portugal with experience with these two systems simultaneously.

While Coolsculpting applies cryolipolysis techniques to freeze and remove fat, EMSculpt NEO will take a completely different approach and help build muscle passively while applying radiofrequency waves to eliminate fat cells with heat. In this way, we will be attacking the fat cells from all directions, thus maximizing the probability of treatment success.

You can see an example of the evolution of a patient who underwent the 2 treatments on the Coolsculpting and EMSculpt Neo Before and After page.

Emsculpt contraindications

Although Emsculpt NEO is extremely safe and effective, there are some contraindications to the treatment.

It is not recommended for pregnant women, people with metal implants/prostheses in the body, people with heart problems, epilepsy or other medical conditions that may be aggravated by electromagnetic wave therapy.

Furthermore, treatment should not be carried out in areas with skin lesions, recent scars, tumors or other conditions that may be affected by electromagnetic waves.

Is Emsculpt safe?

Yes, Emsculpt NEO is a safe and non-invasive treatment. Electromagnetic waves and radiofrequency are safe and do not cause pain or discomfort. This treatment is approved by regulatory bodies in the United States of America (FDA), Europe (EMEA) and Brazil (ANVISA).

However, it is important that the treatment is carried out by a qualified and experienced professional. Living Clinic has highly qualified and experienced professionals, specialized in Emsculpt treatments.

Recovery from the treatment

The truth is that you don’t need any downtime after treatments. It is a completely non-invasive and painless treatment. You can return to your normal life immediately after treatments. The only thing you may feel is some muscle fatigue due to the muscle contractions that are carried out during the sessions. It’s equivalent to having done intense physical exercise, but in this case, effortlessly!

Main benefits

The main benefits of Emsculpt NEO compared to other treatments for reducing localized fat and increasing muscle mass are the following:

  • Faster fat loss and increased muscle mass
  • No recovery time
  • Without anesthesia
  • No side effects
  • Safe and without any risk of burns and irritation
  • Painless
  • Visible results after the first session
