What is Emsculpt Neo?

EMSCULPT NEO simultaneously emits synchronized radiofrequency (RF) heating and high intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM+) to tone muscle and reduce fat while tightening skin during the same treatment.

Dr. Samuels’ practice is one of the first worldwide to introduce this FDA-cleared treatment. We participated in a study evaluating results on the abs after three 30-minute sessions, with changes measured by ultrasound imaging. The results at three months post-treatment were significant, revealing 30% reduction in fat thickness, 25% thickening of the abdominal muscle, and visible skin tightening. The study surveyed patient satisfaction at over 94 percent.



Because the  lateral abdomen consists of multiple fat pockets and muscle, there hasn’t been a good solution to address this area until the introduction of EMSCULPT NEO with EDGE. EDGE applicators are the only unique solution to combine Synchronized RF and HIFEM to address fat spots on both sides of the abdomen, along with all oblique muscles, for a total contour in just 30 minutes. Again, Dr. Samuels was one of the first practitioners in the U.S. to introduce EMSCULPT NEO with EDGE applicators.

What To Expect During An EMSCULPT NEO Treatment

The procedure is simple and easy, with no preparation required. You lay down while applicators are applied over the treatment area for 30 minutes. 

During treatment, the muscle temperature quickly rises in the same way a warm-up before exercise prepares your muscles for exposure to stress. In under four minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause permanent damage to fat cells and slowly remove them from the body. HIFEM+ energy contracts muscle fibers at intensities not achievable during exercise. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells.

You feel a tolerable but intense heating sensation along with muscle contractions. Once the procedure is completed, you can immediately resume your daily routine. The end result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold-standard product can deliver, for less time and less money. For an added skin tightening effect, we often also combine VASER SHAPE before an EMSCULPT NEO treatment in the same session.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you wish to build muscle, reduce fat and tighten skin in a single treatment, EMSCULPT NEO is the answer. It has broad appeal as it can treat patients with a body mass index (BMI) up to 35.

Treatment areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Calves

We recommend a series of four 30-minute treatments scheduled 5-10 days apart. The results we’ve seen from this series is similar to four months of exercise in the gym, and with lasting results. The combination of EMSCULPT NEO plus EMSELLA is referred to as Core to Floor therapy, and we’re the only office in Louisville to offer that as well. Our office did the nonsurgical mommy makeover study on this combination for BTL.

Please follow this link to read all about Core to Floor therapy in our published paper on this exciting option for women after pregnancy and to see how this revolutionary nonsurgical option strengthens the core abdomen as well as the pelvic floor, corrects stress urinary incontinence and enhances female sexual function.  

EMSCULPT NEO can be applied over ten body areas such as abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms and calves. And now, with the addition of EMSCULPT NEO with EDGE, we can also sculpt the hard-to-target oblique muscles, waist and flanks.

You will feel intense muscle contractions and a heating sensation comparable to a hot stone massage in the treated area.

The treatment protocol typically includes four 30-minute sessions scheduled 5-10 days apart. 

You may start to notice tangible results immediately after treatments. Optimal results are typically seen 90 days after the final session and can continue improving for several weeks after treatment.
