At the Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village in Fall River, MA we offer Emsculpt NEO, an FDA-approved body contouring device that can target stubborn fat by up to 30% while simultaneously building and strengthening muscle mass up to 25%. In addition to body sculpting, Emsculpt Neo® has been shown to produce a 15% reduction in diastasis recti (the separation of the abdominal muscles, which is common during pregnancy or significant weight gain) and a roughly 18% reduction in visceral fat.
Visceral body fat, also known as ‘hidden’ fat, is fat stored deep inside the belly, wrapped around the organs, including the liver and intestines. It makes up about one tenth of all the fat stored in the body. Visceral fat produces more toxic substances than subcutaneous fat, so it is more dangerous. Even in thin people, having visceral fat carries a wide range of health risks such as liver disease, insulin resistance, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and dementia.
EmSculpt NEO is a safe and effective body contouring device that combines radiofrequency energy and HIFEM technology to accomplish a twofold goal: muscle building and fat loss. It also can significantly increase core strength and help patients recover from back injuries or strengthen their muscles after surgery.
To see muscle definition, you need to lose fat, and muscle definition requires toned muscles through muscular contractions during workouts. With EmSculpt NEO, we can evade the traditional body contouring process in the gym and instead accomplish it here in our office.
This device is so effective because it targets stubborn fat while simultaneously strengthening the muscles. The result is significantly decreased fat volume in your problem areas and more defined muscles.
For example, if you treat your abdomen, you’ll lose abdominal fat while also strengthening your core muscles, promoting improved definition and a better-looking midsection. The device uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat stubborn fat cells to a temperature at which they cannot survive.
Once these fat cells increase in temperature, they experience a process called apoptosis. Apoptosis is cell death, and by destroying fat cells, we initiate a process that the body responds to by reducing and eliminating fat cells through the lymphatic system. As the body slowly eliminates these fat cells as waste in the months following your treatment, you’ll achieve an improved appearance and noticeable results.
However, this treatment doesn’t just focus on fat loss. It also uses HIFEM technology to force muscles into extremely powerful contractions. These contractions are unlike anything your body can accomplish during a typical workout. In fact, they’re even stronger than the contractions your brain can force your muscles into. During a typical workout you only are able to contract about 30% of your muscle. Emsculpt NEO contracts 90-100% of your muscle. It also stimulates fibroblast production causing new muscle growth.
For that reason, EmSculpt NEO can help you accomplish your muscle-building goals much faster than a 12-week high intensity workout plan.
This body contouring treatment can address some of the most common problem areas in men and women. It can eliminate stubborn fat while strengthening the muscles in several different body areas, including the abdomen, calves, buttocks, thighs, and arms.
You won’t have to choose if you want to treat all of these areas or a combination of body areas. We can design a treatment plan that helps you target all your problem areas, reduce stubborn fat, and increase muscle definition so you can achieve your ideal physique.
While this treatment does provide many aesthetic benefits, it also benefits patients who have undergone surgery and need to strengthen certain muscle groups as a part of the healing and recovery process. The device can strengthen the core muscles in the abdomen and provides many different reparative aspects, including accelerating the healing process after surgery and helping patients recover from back surgery. A strong core leads to better balance and posture, less back pain, and better protection of your internal organs. It makes simple tasks in everyday life easier, like bending and lifting.
EmSculpt NEO treatments are pain-free. We will apply the applicator to your treatment area when you arrive at your appointment. As we initiate the device, you’ll feel a warming sensation as the radiofrequency energy heats the adipose tissue. At the same time, you’ll feel a series of intense contractions as the HIFEM technology forces your muscles into intense contractions to strengthen and tone the entire area.
Treatments take approximately 30 minutes from start to finish, and you won’t have any post-treatment downtime. Some patients experience sore muscles post-treatment as they would from an intense workout at the gym. This sensation will subside within a few days. Staying well hydrated can help promote a quick recovery.
After undergoing the recommended number of EmSculpt NEO treatments, you can expect noticeable results within the first few weeks following your initial treatment. Patients can lose up to 30% of total fat volume in their target areas and achieve a 25% increase in muscle volume. Results vary among patients, and we can give you a better idea of what type of results you can expect at your consultation.
It’s important to note that while you will achieve results faster than you would through traditional fitness and lifestyle changes, your results will appear gradually as your body flushes the fat cells and responds to the HIFEM technology. You can help promote quick results by maintaining a healthy diet, building activity into your daily routine, and drinking plenty of water. Regular activity and increased water intake support lymphatic function, which is key to achieving your results.
The good news is that EmSculpt NEO is not just a temporary fix. It delivers long-lasting results, and your results can be permanent: but at the end of the day, how long your results last is up to you. The device will destroy fat cells, and your body does not grow new fat cells after adolescence. However, any remaining fat cells in your target area have the potential to increase in size with weight gain. If that occurs, it will negatively impact your results. Avoiding weight gain after your treatment and committing to a healthy lifestyle will ensure you can enjoy your treatment results long-term.
Additionally, you can schedule maintenance treatments to target any additional fat cells or problem areas. Maintenance treatments can also help maintain or improve muscle strength.
If you have problem areas that you want to treat to eliminate stubborn fat and increase muscle tone, you may be a good candidate for EmSculpt NEO. Unlike many body contouring treatments, this device can treat a broader range of patients, including those with a BMI of up to 35. Patients must be committed to the treatment process, have realistic expectations about the treatment outcome, and understand that weight gain post-treatment will negatively affect the results.
It’s also important to realize that while this treatment device can help perfect your body, it’s not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It’s not a free pass to unhealthy living. Instead, it complements a healthy lifestyle and helps patients accelerate their results. An initial consultation will confirm your treatment eligibility so that we can begin helping you lose stubborn fat as soon as possible.
You don’t have to live with stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to traditional diet and exercise techniques, and you also don’t have to spend hours in the gym or eat a restrictive diet to reach your goals.
Whether you want to improve your appearance or strengthen your core or back muscles, there is a solution, and it’s completely non-invasive and pain-free. The dramatic results will help you begin a body transformation and make you a more confident version of yourself.
