EMSCULPT NEO is the next generation of muscle building and fat reducing technologies. It is FDA-cleared for the breakdown of fat, reduction in abdominal/waist circumference, strengthening and tone improvement of the abdomen, and firming of buttocks, thighs, arms, and calves. It is a no downtime, pain-free, nonsurgical means of building muscle and burning fat.

EMSCULPT NEO creates supramaximal muscle contraction – this is a level of muscle work beyond what is possible through physical training, yielding better muscle tone and enhanced fat metabolism. EMSCULPT NEO results are backed by 7 clinical studies that consistently demonstrate 30% fat loss, 25% muscle mass gain, 19% reduction in abdominal separation and a 5.9 cm (2.3 inches) reduction in waist circumference.

What Results are Typical with EMSCULPT NEO?

BTL, the manufacturer of EMSCULPT, conducted 30 studies on HIFEM technology including 7 new clinical studies on EMSCULPT NEO. Clinical studies measured fat and muscle by imaging (ultrasound, CT scans and MRI studies), compared photos before and after treatment, and measured changes in waistline measurements.

On average, the following were achieved in EMSCULPT NEO clinical studies on healthy patients:


  • 30% reduction of fat
  • 25% more muscle
  • 19% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
  • 9 cm (2.3 inches) loss in waistline circumference
  • 30% increase in satellite cells – stem cell precursors to new muscle cells
  • Muscle changes similar to a 12-16 week workout regimen
  • 88%-100% patient satisfaction

What areas of the body can I treat with EMSculpt NEO®?

Center is thrilled to offer all available options for full body treatment with EMSculpt NEO® Large and Contour Applicators. The large applicators treat the abdomen and buttocks in 30 minute treatments. The Contour Applicators treat the biceps, triceps, calves, and even inner thighs or quads. We recommend a regimen of 4 NEO® sessions (HIFEM + Radio Frequency) to aptly reduce fat and build muscle in the abdomen area. Patients can use the supercharged NEO® muscle building HIFEM without Radio Frequency if they are aiming to simply build muscle without fat loss.

What happens during an EMSculpt NEO® Treatment?

The EMSculpt NEO® device is strapped on to your body/bare skin using a wide, comfortable strap. You’ll be laying down and we’ll then activate the Radio Frequency and HIFEM contractions to the optimal treatment level. From there, the technology uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to flex your muscles 300 times their inherent capacity. The Radio Frequency emits heat, raising the fat temperature to a level that causes permanent fat cell damage. After 30 minutes, we will remove the device applicator. You can get dressed and immediately resume normal activities. No downtime or post-care required.

Does EMSculpt NEO® Hurt?

The Radio Frequency will feel warm and the HIFEM technology will feel intense as it engages your muscles. You’ll definitely feel like you’re getting a great workout, and should you ever feel uncomfortable, there is a pause button for your convenience.

How Long is The Downtime? When Can You Return to Normal Exercise?

There is no downtime with EMSculpt NEO®. Since the treatment is targeted, patients do not have the full body lactic acid production associated with a full body workout, so same-day exercise can occur as well. Results at the gym or from your at-home workout regimen will be enhanced and you will notice your motivation increase with the complementary results from EMSculpt NEO®. We always recommend a healthy and balanced diet to optimize your results.

How Fast Will I See Results from EMSculpt NEO®?

You begin to feel tangible results immediately after first treatment. You’ll feel stronger and tighter. For fat loss, this takes a bit more time. Your body needs about 12 weeks after your 4th treatment to “flush out” the fat we impacted using Radio Frequency. We bring you in for a body sculpting assessment at this 12-week mark. For muscle building, patients often see maximum results two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the complete treatment plan.

How Many Sessions of EMSculpt NEO® Do I Need?

Everybody is different and every person’s goals can vary. If you’re looking to use the NEO’s Radio Frequency to lose fat, you might need just 1 package of 4-sessions. Or you may need another round, depending on your goals. We’ll assess this during your complimentary body sculpting consultation. 

What About Maintaining my Results with EMSculpt NEO® ?

When you’re EMSculpting to build muscle, think of it like going to the gym - you reap the results of the dedication to your workouts. If you’re looking to continue to keep your muscles toned, we recommend a regimen of EMSculpting beyond the 4 NEO® sessions, but with the NEO’s radio frequency technology, your fat loss is permanent. It may only take 4 sessions to see the fat loss results you’re aiming for, which we’ll assess at your 12-week follow up.

Can I do EMSculpt NEO® With a Partner?

In response to COVID-19 we currently only allow patients who live together to be treated simultaneously. Yes, two patients can be treated at once – but only on the abdomen. You can both opt in for Radio Frequency PLUS HIFEM, or you can tailor the Radio Frequency to your individual choosing.

Who Are Ideal Candidates for EMSculpt NEO®?

For a traditional EMSculpt® patient, a good candidate is physically active and adheres to a healthy diet and lifestyle. They are seeking results beyond the plateau they could hit during a fitness regimen. With the NEO®, patients can have up to a BMI of 35, as the device delivers fat-melting Radio Frequency to trim down the area, and then uses HIFEM Technology to tone and build the muscle underneath.

What is The Difference Between CoolSculpting and EMSculpt NEO® Treatments?

Coolsculpting is a procedure that freezes fat on different parts of the body. The body attempts to remove that frozen fat over the next 4-6 weeks. EMSculpt NEO® is a procedure that builds muscle in 30 minutes without pain, redness, swelling, delivered with the most consistent results, it also uses Radio Frequency to melt fat off the abdomen - up to 30% over the course of 4 treatment sessions. It is unlike any device in the world, delivering a dual treatment all at once, in 30 minute increments. You will see full results from your first 4-session treatment at your 12-week follow up appointment. With any treatment regimen, our medical professionals recommend a healthy diet and exercise routine to insure the best results possible for you.

Is EMSculpt NEO® Safe?

Yes, the EMSculpt NEO’s radio frequency and electromagnetic energy is completely safe. For further reading, see The National Cancer Institute’s research on the differences between safe and dangerous electromagnetic energy. It is FDA approved and is safe for anyone without a metal plate or copper IUD near the abdomen area. With any treatment we offer, we help you understand any risk possible during your complimentary consultation. The NEO® has undergone 7 Clinical Studies and included in over 30 Scientific Publications. Please contact our team to learn more.
