Many people across the country are frustrated by stubborn fat that refuses to respond to even during the most intensely focused workouts and diet plans. One of the reasons for this is that spot reduction, or the ability to lose weight in a certain targeted area, is a myth. While you can reduce the fat in problem areas by losing weight overall, you can’t eliminate fat in just one area. As a result, many people are left with areas of stubborn fat even when they are at their ideal weight.
However, using the Emsculpt NEO, we can now target specific areas of the body to tone muscles and reduce fat. At The Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village, we love using the Emsculpt NEO because it is a safe, effective non-surgical device that brings our patients the results they are looking for.
What Is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt NEO is a body contouring device that delivers two functions during treatment. It helps tone the muscles in the target area and it also reduces fat. During one treatment, the device can achieve the muscle-building equivalent of many high-intensity workouts while permanently destroying fat cells.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
There are two technologies included in one convenient device. The muscle toning that the device can achieve comes from HIFEM technology. HIFEM, or high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology, creates electrical currents that penetrate your muscles and stimulate muscular contractions. This electromagnetic energy is harmless, but it can produce noticeable muscle-toning benefits in just one session. During your 30-minute treatment, the HIFEM technology can stimulate up to 20,000 contractions which is far more than you could achieve in one workout session. The muscle contractions are also far more efficient and will equally stimulate every part of the muscle group in the target area.
Not only does the treatment help to burn fat in the area by using fat energy for muscular contractions, but it also targets and permanently destroys fat cells using radiofrequency energy. Without burning your skin or causing discomfort, the device sends radiofrequency energy into the fat layer of your body. It heats the adipose until it reaches the ideal temperature at which apoptosis occurs. Apoptosis is when fat cells are destroyed and then eliminated from the body. During clinical studies, results showed that 30% of fat was eliminated from the area during treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Emsculpt Neo?
Non-Invasive and Comfortable
With Emsculpt NEO, there are no needles and no incisions. It is a completely comfortable and pain-free treatment. During the treatment, we will continually monitor you to ensure you stay comfortable.
There is no downtime with the Emsculpt NEO. While your muscles may be tired and a little sore just like they would be after an intense workout, you can return to all of your regular activities. Your skin may have some slight redness in the hours directly after your treatment.
Can Help Diastasis Recti
Diastasis recti is a common condition after pregnancy and it can also affect people who have gained and then lost weight. During pregnancy, the rectus abdominis muscles in the abdomen separate to make room for the baby. After birth, these muscles come back together in many people. However, these muscles can sometimes remain separated, leaving a bulge when the muscles are contracted. Diastasis recti can be difficult to resolve. Emsculpt NEO can help to reduce diastasis recti. Studies show an average of 15% reduction in diastasis recti.
Fat Reducing Results Are Permanent
While your muscles can grow less toned if not kept up by regular exercise or additional Emsculpt treatments, any fat cells that are destroyed during the treatment will not come back. We recommend staying at a healthy weight since the remaining fat cells can still expand with weight gain and cause an uneven appearance.
The Emsculpt machine is versatile in that it can be used on many different areas of the body. It can be used to tone and slim the abdominal area. It can also be used on the buttocks, thighs, and arms to build muscle and contour the area.
What Will Your Emsculpt NEO Appointment Be Like?
Your Emsculpt NEO treatment will be straightforward and comfortable. Because the Emsculpt machine’s attachments need to be placed directly on the skin, we will ask you to remove clothing only from the treatment area. We may ask you some questions to ensure it is placed correctly. Once the machine is turned on, you will start to feel your muscles contract. While not painful, it may be an unusual sensation. You will also start to feel warmth as the radiofrequency energy begins its work.
After your appointment, we recommend drinking plenty of water to help your muscles to recover from the treatment. As with a workout, your muscles will begin healing and knitting themselves together to be much stronger than before. Most patients notice muscle toning first and then a reduction in fat as their bodies flush away the dead fat cells.
