The Body Contouring Procedure That Can Transform Your Shape
We fully believe every body is a bikini body. However, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t want to look and feel their best before the summer season. And while it’s critical to maintain a healthy lifestyle through a balanced diet and a consistent workout regimen, there’s nothing wrong with getting some support. You can actually enhance the results of your hard work with a 30-minute, entirely non-invasive body contouring treatment called Emsculpt NEO. In fact, after a series of four sessions, you’ll be able to see an impressive difference in just one month.
Emsculpt NEO by BTL is a non-surgical treatment that combines radiofrequency energy with high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to simultaneously melt fat and build muscle. It’s a painless experience and the treatment can be completed on a lunch break, as it necessitates zero downtime or adjustments to your daily routine. Clinical studies performed by BTL show that Emsculpt NEO can decrease the circumference of the waist by about six centimeters, increase muscle mass by 25 percent, and reduce fat by 30 percent in the treated area one month after treatment.
Here’s how the technology works: the applicator’s HIFEM therapy triggers rapid muscle contractions in the treated area — up to 24,000 in one 30-minute treatment, which would be impossible to recreate in a single workout. At the same time, the radiofrequency aspect of the device works to heat fat cells in the area to the point of cell death.
Though it may sound like it could be uncomfortable, Emsculpt NEO is completely painless. Patients feel a warm sensation from the radiofrequency plus the unexpected feeling of random muscle contractions; in the days after an appointment, patients can feel muscle soreness, not unlike what they’d experience after a challenging workout. To get the best results, you’ll have to schedule a series of four treatments spaced about two weeks apart, with maintenance treatments every one month thereafter. (Think about it — you wouldn’t go to the gym once and expect the results of that single visit to last!)
What makes Emsculpt NEO really special is that while most body contouring treatments require patients to be at or near their goal weight, this procedure can be booked by anyone with a BMI of up to 35. Emsculpt NEO treatments can be performed on the abs, thighs, butt, calves, and arms — some of the most common areas for stubborn fat.
