What Does Emsculpt NEO Do, and Is It Right for Me?

Without a doubt, a balanced diet and regular exercise routine is the best way to burn fat, get fit, and get toned. There is no cosmetic treatment that can replace a healthy lifestyle. However, many people struggle to remove stubborn fat from certain areas of their bodies. Often, genetics and hormones play a role in this. If you are struggling to get rid of unwanted fat deposits, you are in the right place. At Dundee Dermatology, we offer Emsculpt Neo treatments to help you on your journey to get toned. You can count on us to provide a solution to your body contouring problems. You can contact us online or call us to arrange a consultation in West Dundee and Northwest Chicago, IL. 

So, What Does Emsculpt Neo Do?

Emsculpt Neo is a state-of-the-art device that uses a combination of high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) muscle stimulation and radiofrequency heat to cause your muscles to contract. It is highly effective at toning muscles and burning unwanted fat. The muscle contractions cause your fat cells to supply energy to support them. Once your fat cells are depleted of their resources, they are passed through the lymphatic system and eliminated. This removes fat cells while strengthening muscles at the same time. 

Now that we know what Emsculpt Neo is, it is important to know what it is not. Emsculpt Neo is not a weight loss alternative or substitute. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise is still vital to reach your final goal. Emsculpt Neo is ideal for removing stubborn fat deposits. This treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive. Since it makes use of radiofrequency (RF) energy and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) muscle stimulation, the results are often more dramatic than other non-surgical body contouring treatments. You can treat fat deposits in the following areas:

  • Abdomen 
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Calves

Frequently Asked Questions

Since Emsculpt Neo is a relatively new treatment, many people are unfamiliar with how it works and how it can benefit them. We are here to shed light on the subject so you can understand the advantages of this non-surgical treatment. 

When Will You See the Results?

On average, you need 3-4 Emsculpt Neo treatments to see results. There are even patients that have noticed results after one session. However, it can take up to three months to see your final results. It is important to note that each person is different and will experience different results over different periods. Depending on your goal, you may need to have follow-up sessions to maintain your results. Feel free to visit us for a consultation so we can discuss your unique needs and desired outcomes. This is the best way to determine your treatment plan. 

How Long Do the Results Last?

How long your results last depends largely on what your body weight and muscle tone were before starting the treatment. It also depends on how your body responds to the treatment and your lifestyle. For instance, if you have a healthy diet and exercise routine in place, the results will last longer. Patients with a healthy lifestyle can expect results to last anywhere from 6-12 months. However, if you are not active and eat unhealthy food, your results may only last 3-4 months. Fat may increase, and muscle tone will fade if you don’t keep up with your healthy lifestyle. 

In addition, if you gain weight after your Emsculpt Neo treatment, the results may disappear in as little as a month. In essence, the longevity of the results mostly depends on you and your lifestyle. You have a measure of control over how long they last.

Is Emsculpt Neo a Weight Loss Substitute? 

No, it is not. What does Emsculpt Neo do? It burns unwanted fat cells and tones your muscles. What does it not do? Emsculpt Neo will not help you lose weight or replace your diet and exercise routine. The treatment will make you look more toned and trimmed, but you won’t see a small number when you weigh yourself on a scale. Only a prolonged healthy lifestyle or surgical procedures can help you achieve drastic results. Fat loss and weight loss are different. Emsculpt Neo helps you get rid of stubborn fat cells.  

Is There an Age Limit for Emsculpt Neo?

No, there is no age limit. As a matter of fact, this treatment can be especially beneficial for older patients that can’t participate in core or muscle-building activities as much as they used to. Emsculpt Neo can help aging patients get toned. It is the perfect body contouring treatment for people of all ages and fitness levels. 

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Emsculpt Neo?

This treatment is not recommended for patients with a BMI higher than 30. Moderate to severely overweight patients won’t gain their desired results from Emsculpt Neo treatments. It is meant to treat mild to moderate pockets of fat and help build muscle. Visit us to determine if Emsculpt Neo treatments are right for you!
