Emsculpt NEO is a treatment that helps to break down fat cells and build muscle. The treatment is non-invasive and does not require surgery. After the treatment, the fat cells are broken down and leave the body through the lymphatic system.

How Does It Work? 

Emsculpt NEO is a new, non-invasive body contouring treatment that can help you achieve a more sculpted and toned physique. This treatment uses radio frequency technology to target and destroys fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells are heated to the temperature of apoptosis, which triggers cell death. The painless process makes Emsculpt NEO perfect for those who cannot shift the last stubborn pockets of fat from their body. 

When you have Emsculpt NEO, the machine works by sending electromagnetic energy through your skin and into your fat cells. This energy causes the cells to contract and break apart. Once the cells are broken down, they can be metabolized by the body and eliminated through the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of waste, toxins, and other unwanted materials. 

How Much Fat Can Emsculpt NEO Remove?

Emsculpt NEO helps to remove up to 30 percent of fat cells in treated areas. This treatment can be done regardless of how much fat is in the areas you want to treat. The most common areas to treat with Emsculpt NEO are the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

Most people will start to see results after just a few Emsculpt NEO sessions. However, for the best results, it’s recommended that you have a series of four to six treatments. After your final treatment, you should see a noticeable reduction in fat in the treated area and an increase in muscle definition.

One of the benefits of Emsculpt NEO is that it is a non-surgical treatment option, so no downtime is required after the procedure. This treatment is also comfortable and typically only takes 30 minutes to complete.

How Does Emsculpt NEO Differ from Liposuction?

Emsculpt NEO is a new, non-invasive body sculpting treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to target and tone specific body areas. The HIFEM energy penetrates deep into the muscle tissue, causing the muscles to contract and increasing muscle mass. 

Emsculpt NEO is the only FDA-cleared device that can target the upper and lower abdominal muscles and the gluteal (buttock) muscles in a single treatment session. Emsculpt NEO is a great alternative for those looking for a non-surgical alternative to Liposuction.


As a non-invasive body contouring treatment, Emsculpt NEO uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to target and destroy fat cells. The body then flushes the destroyed fat cells out through the lymphatic system. Emsculpt NEO is a safe and effective way to reduce fat and can be used on different areas of the body, including the stomach, thighs, and arms.
