Does EMSculpt Neo Actually Work?
Estimated reading time 4 minutes
EMSculpt Neo is a revolutionary body contouring treatment. It’s the first non-invasive treatment in the world to burn fat and tone muscles at the same time. But does it really work? Below we look into exactly what EMSculpt Neo is, how it works, and the results.
What is EMSculpt Neo?
EMSculpt Neo is a non-invasive treatment for fat reduction and muscle toning. EMSculpt Neo builds on its predecessor – EMSculpt – to utilise both radio frequency and high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM+) energies to simultaneously eliminate fat and build muscle.
How does EMSculpt Neo work?
EMSculpt Neo will consist of four 30-minute treatments, scheduled 5-10 days apart. During the treatment, radio frequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies are applied to the targeted area via an applicator, which can be nearly anywhere on the body, including thighs, upper arms, the stomach, and the hips. EMSculpt Neo uses smaller applicators that can be applied to more targeted areas that couldn’t be treated with previous versions of the treatment.
The radio frequency works by heating up the muscles, similar to how you might warm up before a work out. It prepares the muscles for exposure to stress, so they are more receptive to the treatment. In less than four minutes, the optimum temperature is reached for fat cells to be permanently damaged, which allows the body to remove them through normal metabolic processes.
The HIFEM+ energy works by contracting the fibres of the muscles, similar to working out but at a much higher intensity that’s not achievable through exercise. This extreme stress causes the muscles to adapt by increasing the muscle fibres and cells, resulting in increased muscle volume.
Does EMSculpt Neo really work?
In short – yes. EMSculpt Neo really does reduce fat and increase muscle. Clinical studies have shown that, on average, EMSculpt Neo results in a 30% reduction in fat and a 25% increase of muscle.
Each EMSculpt Neo treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 squats or crunches, targeting your muscles in a deeper and more intensive way that no gym workout can achieve. The energies that are applied throughout the treatment reach a deeper level of your muscles, to help build tone and eliminate fat cells.
Cosmopolitan magazine recently reviewed EMSculpt Neo and found it to be a “total game-changer for strengthening, tightening, firmer, and…shrinking”. They cited how the treatment can help to level-up your usual wellness routine and help to get the desired results faster than a typical exercise routine. They also noted how the treatment was virtually pain-free, with just a “strange” sensation when the muscles contract, plus a feeling of heat.
Byrdie has also reviewed EMSculpt Neo and saw positive results. The reviewed noticed less fat on their abdomen, with muscles looking more toned even after the second treatment. Overall, they noticed being stronger in their workouts, specifically with moves and exercises that required core strength, which was the area they targeted with the treatment.
What are the side effects of EMSculpt Neo?
There are virtually no side effects of EMSculpt Neo. It is non-surgical and non-invasive, with no downtime needed post-treatment.
Some clients have reported mild redness, bruising, and slight swelling following their treatment. These are minor, and last no longer than 48 hours. However, most clients do not experience any post-treatment sensitivities at all.
How long do results from EMSculpt Neo last?
Results from EMSculpt Neo can be permanent, as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained post-treatment. Once the fat cells have been broken down, they won’t return on their own. A balanced diet and regular exercise can help to retain your sculpted body permanently.
The first results are usually visible around 4 weeks after the treatment and they will continue to develop up to three-month post-treatment, which is when optimum results can be seen.
