Is EmSculpt® NEO the Best Body Contouring Procedure?

Emsculpt EmSculpt NEO is a procedure that sculpts your body by building muscle and burning fat. It uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) radiation to enlarge current muscles and grow new muscle fibers. The FDA has approved EmSculpt to treat specific areas, including abdominals, arms, buttocks, calves, and thighs. This procedure has also been clinically tested in the U.S. for safety and efficacy.


An EmSculpt NEO session induces strong muscle contractions in the treatment, which helps improve the size and strength of your muscles. These contractions create stress that forces the muscle tissue to adapt by getting larger. They also cause muscles to use energy, which burns fat.

Who Is a Candidate EmSculpt NEO?

EmSculpt NEO may be right for the following candidates:

Patients With Diastasis Recti

Diastasis recti is a condition characterized by gaps between the abdominal muscles, most commonly as a result of giving birth. However, it also has other causes, like sudden weight loss, lifting heavy objects incorrectly, and some types of surgery. EmSculpt can reduce abdominal gaps in patients with diastasis recti.

People Who Follow a Healthy Lifestyle

Good candidates for EmSculpt NEO already enjoy a healthy lifestyle. This treatment works best with exercise and isn’t a replacement for it. You should be within a healthy weight range and be committed to maintaining your results through a cardio and strength-training routine.

Those Looking for Injury Recovery and Prevention

EmSculpt NEO can supplement physical therapy by allowing people to rebuild their muscles after certain injuries. Fitness routines increase your risk of overuse injuries, whether you’re transitioning to a new program or coming back after a long hiatus. The ability of EmSculpt NEO to strengthen core muscle groups like the abdomen is particularly helpful for building the stability needed to minimize the risk of injuries.

Patients Seeking an Alternative to Plastic Surgery

People who want to improve their appearance without the risks of plastic surgery may also be good candidates for EmSculpt NEO. This procedure is non-invasive, so it doesn’t require a lengthy recovery like surgery typically does.
