It doesn’t matter that we’re nearing the end of summer. Body contouring remains an important topic on lots of lips this time of year. Often, it’s with some lamenting that one wishes they had started getting ready for summer sooner. Sometimes, it’s with an eye for the holiday season. Now that we’re out and about once again, doing more with friends and family, we want to look our best and, let’s face it, many of us could use some help after reaching for comfort foods during COVID lockdowns. Whatever the reason, we’re excited to have some of the best technology at our fingertips for destroying fat and building muscle. Here, we discuss how our patients are benefiting from EMSculpt Neo and how, if you have this treatment, you can maximize your results.
What is EMSculpt?
EMSculpt was the first-generation muscle-toning device made by BTL to work using non-invasive electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology. This energy was expressly developed to stimulate muscle growth, something no device has done previously. During an EMSculpt session, which lasts 30 minutes and needs no anesthetic whatsoever, the device induces deep muscle contractions. Not just a few; thousands of them. The results, verified by several independent clinical studies, can be a loss of 18% fat and an increase in muscle mass to the tune of 16%. But wait, there’s more!
After the success of EMSculpt, BTL went farther. The company developed a new platform, the EMSculpt Neo, that combines radiofrequency, a known fat-buster, with the powerful HIFEM energy already famous for profoundly improving muscle tone. This treatment takes the same amount of time and can treat patients with BMI up to 35, something unheard of with other noninvasive body contouring devices. What’s more, clinical studies have shown that EMSculpt Neo patients can lose up to 30% of their targeted subcutaneous fat and gain up to 25% more muscle tone.
Does it Get Better?
So far, the technology designed for noninvasive body contouring using HIFEM and radiofrequency is pretty much the best we’ve got. However, your results can get better with a few simple habits.
- Drink plenty of water while undergoing your EMSculpt treatments. This helps the body flush fat more efficiently.
- Maintain your healthy diet. The results of fat reduction and muscle growth will last longer when the body is fueled with healthy carbs, lean meats, and plenty of fiber.
- Stay active. Patients who have gotten EMSculpt treatments and have maintained their regular workouts often report feeling stronger even before they can see the visible rewards of their treatments.
