The Science Behind Body Sculpting: How Fat Cells Are Eliminated

Unwanted fat can often disrupt the smooth contours of the body, leading to bulges in areas that might otherwise appear sleek and toned. Body sculpting can help target and reduce these unwelcome fat deposits, giving you the contours you are looking for.

At The Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village, located in Fall River, MA, we specialize in non-invasive body sculpting methods. These treatments can be excellent options for dealing with unwanted fat, helping in the reduction of stubborn areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. With our treatments, we offer effective results through techniques that are supported by the latest advancements in the field.

The Basic Composition and Function of Fat Cells

Fat cells, scientifically known as adipocytes, play a part in the body’s energy management. They store excess energy in the form of lipids and release it when the body needs fuel. Structurally, these cells are designed for expandability, enabling them to hold varying amounts of fat depending on the body’s energy balance.

How Fat Cells Store and Release Energy

Fat cells store energy by converting carbohydrates and fats from our diet into triglycerides, which are then stored in the adipocytes. During periods of energy deficit, these triglycerides are broken down into fatty acids and glycerol, providing energy to the body. This process is a dynamic balance, responsive to the body’s metabolic needs.

The Lifecycle of a Fat Cell

A fat cell’s life is a cycle of growth, maturation, and eventual death. New fat cells are continuously formed from precursor cells. They mature over time and then store fat. They can expand many times their size, and when they die, they are replaced by new cells. This cycle is part of the body’s ongoing process of energy storage and regulation.

Fat Distribution and Body Contouring

Genetic and lifestyle factors influence fat distribution, resulting in stubborn fat in specific areas. These areas can be challenging to target through diet and exercise alone. Body contouring methods are designed to address this issue, offering body fat reduction in targeted areas. This process aligns with the body’s natural contours, focusing on reducing fat cells in specific regions for a more sculpted appearance.


EMSCULPT NEO is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment designed for individuals looking to enhance their body’s appearance without invasive procedures. EMSCULPT NEO uses several different technologies to reduce stubborn fat and improve the muscle tone of treated areas. Because of this approach, it can provide better results than other types of body contouring treatments. 

What Technologies Does EMSCULPT NEO Use?


HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology works by inducing supramaximal muscle contractions in the area that you want to sculpt. These involuntary contractions can result in faster muscle growth and enhanced tone. These visible changes can be achieved in just a few sessions.

Radiofrequency Energy

Radiofrequency energy is the second technology that EMSCULPT NEO uses. It complements the HIFEM® body sculpting technology by targeting fat cells at the same time. It generates heat, raising the temperature of fat tissues until they are destroyed. Once these fat cells are broken down, they are naturally eliminated from the body.

How EMSCULPT NEO Combats Fat

EMSCULPT NEO’s primary fat reduction happens through the radiofrequency energy. However, the induced muscle strengthening can also indirectly contribute to fat loss by using up a lot of energy and burning more calories.

How Much Fat Can EMSCULPT NEO Target?

EMSCULPT NEO can provide up to 30% reduction in fat in the treated area, alongside a 25% increase in muscle mass. While EMSCULPT isn’t a weight loss solution, this targeted treatment can result in a noticeable difference in body composition over a course of treatments.

How Long Will the Results Last?

The longevity of results from non-surgical body sculpting treatments like EMSCULPT NEO varies. While the treatment effectively reduces fat cells, maintaining the results depends on lifestyle factors. The fat cells around the treated area can expand if weight is gained, potentially altering the achieved results, so it’s best to plan on keeping a stable weight.

How to Get the Best Results From Your EMSCULPT NEO Treatment

Follow the Recommended Treatment Plan

Sticking to your advised treatment plan is important for maximizing the benefits of body sculpting with EMSCULPT NEO. Make sure to go to all of your sessions, which will be perfectly spaced out for optimal results.

Focus on Long-Term Maintenance

For sustained results in body contouring, consider these guidelines:

  • Eat a nutritious diet to support overall health and maintain weight.
  • Engage in regular physical activity, including targeted strengthening exercises.
  • Maintain regular hydration to support metabolic processes.
  • Get adequate sleep to aid in muscle recovery and overall wellness.

Consider Maintenance Sessions

After completing your body sculpting treatment, it is important to consider incorporating periodic maintenance sessions to sustain the results. These sessions can help maintain the muscle tone and fat reduction that were gained in the original sessions and can keep the body’s contours refined over time.
