How does EMSCULPT NEO work?
Fat elimination and muscle growth can be accomplished with EMSCULPT® NEO by emitting both radio frequency and high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM+) energies. This allows you to accomplish two body-shaping services in one sitting! You can use EMSCULPT NEO to target your abdomen, buttocks, arms, and calves to achieve the results you want.
To eliminate and reduce fat, the EMSCULPT NEO applicator releases radio frequency energy that heats up muscle temperature to prepare it for work, similar to a warm-up before you exercise. Within four minutes of starting the treatment, this heat reaches subcutaneous fat and causes apoptosis, a condition where fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body in that specific area.
EMSCULPT NEO builds muscle using HIFEM+ energy to contract the muscle fibers in the selected area, which works muscle more than any workout would be able to achieve. The muscle is forced to adapt to the stress from the contractions, resulting in an increase of muscle fibers and cells, which in turn increases muscle volume.
What to expect when you choose EMSCULPT NEO at CAPS
Your first visit
At CAPS, you’ll receive a 45-minute, one-on-one assessment with a certified nurse to complete a physical evaluation. During this consultation, you'll discuss the areas you want to treat and the treatment plan necessary to achieve the best results for your body. Depending on your goals, multiple treatments over the course of a few weeks may be recommended.
Your customized treatment plan may include just one or multiple areas depending on your aesthetic goals. When you receive the treatment, an applicator will be applied to the necessary area of the body and you'll feel muscle contractions and a heating sensation, comparable to a hot stone massage. Our specialists will be checking in with you during the procedure to make sure you stay comfortable.
After the treatments
EMSCULPT NEO is completely noninvasive, allowing patients to return to a normal routine almost immediately. You may start to see results within two to three weeks post-treatment. Our team will follow up and check in with you to see if you are seeing and feeling your desired results.
Who should get EMSCULPT NEO?
EMSCULPT NEO is noninvasive, which makes it appealing to men and women who want to see quick results in both fat reduction and muscle growth in their abdomens, buttocks, arms, or calves. Individuals who have a BMI up to 35 can get results with EMSCULPT NEO.

After the treatment, the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes. Your body will continue to flush out the dead cells over time after treatment.
