WHAT IS EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSculpt NEO is FDA-approved for the purpose of fat reduction using HIFEM technology. Fat burn and a more toned appearance is achieved through the intense contraction of muscles. Taking fat burning to the next level, EMSculpt NEO combines HIFEM technology with radiofrequency (RF) energy to literally burn fat stores using heat energy. Through each treatment, patients can gain more muscle mass, achieve higher muscle definition, and burn more fat.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE?

EMSculpt NEO is suitable for people who want to lose unwanted pockets of fat while simultaneously strengthening their muscles. This treatment is also ideal for people who have failed to see results from traditional workouts and diets. Ideal candidates for EmSculpt NEO are also people who do not want to undergo surgery or other invasive procedures.
