What is EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is a revolutionary technology; the first 2-in-1 solution for body contouring and allows us to now workout smarter, not harder. EMSCULPT NEO is an FDA and Health Canada- approved fat-eliminating AND muscle-building treatment. EMSCULPT NEO is the only non-invasive technology that uses two technologies in one applicator! Radiofrequency and HIFEM+ (high-intensity electromagnetic field) technologies are simultaneously used. The combination of synchronized RF and HIFEM+ causes a dual effect in the tissues which naturally eliminates dead fat cells throughout the body, all while working muscle fibers beyond what can be done through any voluntary exercise at home or at the gym!

Is EMSCULPT NEO Health Canada approved?

Yes! The EMSCULPT technology was launched in 2018. While most current body contouring devices are either designed to only tone muscle or burn fat during a session, the newest one to hit the aesthetics scene in 2020, EMSCULPT NEO, offers two procedures in one single treatment! This results in on average 30% permanent fat reduction and 25% more muscle growth!

What is HIFEM+ Technology?

HIFEM+ stands for High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic and is the world’s #1 muscle-sculpting technology with newly designed protocols, now operating simultaneously with radiofrequency heating.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

EMSCULPT NEO has applicators that emit two energies at the same time: synchronized radiofrequency (RF) for permanent fat reduction and HIFEM+ for muscle toning.

Before inducing the contractions, the RF energy heats and warms the muscle up, in preparation for the contractions. The temperature quickly and painlessly raises by several degrees. This is similar to a gym warm-up before they are intensely stimulated by the sophisticated HIFEM+ energy.

Before and After EMSCULPT NEO TREATMENT

The RF technology adds a synergistic effect to muscle building, while also triggering lipolysis: fat release from fat cells and adipocyte apoptosis: programmed fat cell death

The lymphatic system collects the dead fat cells and metabolizes and flushes them out of the body as waste (sweat, pee, and poop).

Drinking a minimum of 2L, ideally, 3L of water daily is highly encouraged to support the flushing process and optimize results. Regular cardiovascular exercise, such as a brisk walk, is also strongly recommended.

It is impossible for the dead fat cells to grow back. The fat cells are gone for good, producing long-

Muscles are contracted at intensities that are not achievable during routine exercise. The fat cells are naturally and slowly flushed from the body, and the strained muscle fibers grow.

Can EmSculpt Neo and CoolSculpting treatments be combined?

Absolutely! At Bense Body, and as NL’s leading and most experienced CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO providers, we always strive to WOW our patients! Depending on your body goals, areas you wish to transform, and indications we are treating, your first step is typically to debulk, devolumize and permanently eliminate stubborn, diet, and exercise-resistant fat (on average up to 27% per round) with CoolSculpting.

Phase two is to continue permanently destroying fat AND now also build 25% more (on average) muscle mass with EMSCULPT NEO, showcasing final results!

In certain cases, either CoolSculpting or EmSculpt Neo will be the only solution.

For example, if you wish to treat the chin for example, it will solely be a CoolSculpting solution. Toning the buttocks, calves or biceps will solely be an EMSCULPT NEO solution.

How Many EMSCULPT NEO Treatments are needed to see results?

The number of sessions required is dependent on the area(s) you wish to transform, your body goals, and where you are starting in terms of muscle tone and undesirable fat. One series of EMSCULPT NEO sessions will increase muscle up to 25% on average and reduce fat by up to 30% on average in the treated area.

Can EMSCULPT NEO treat Visceral (non-pinchable) Fat?

Yes! EMSCULPT NEO treats not only pinchable (subcutaneous) fat but also treats non-pinchable (visceral) fat!

Most fat is stored underneath the skin and is known as subcutaneous fat. Visceral body fat, also known as ‘hidden’ fat, is dangerous fat stored deep inside the belly, wrapped around the organs, including the liver and intestines. It makes up about one-tenth of all the fat stored in the body.

Visceral fat is considered unhealthy and has been linked to metabolic disturbances and increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. In women, it is also associated with breast cancer and the need for gallbladder surgery.

What is Diastasis Recti (postpartum) and can EMSCULPT NEO treat this?

Diastasis recti is a common condition in pregnant and postpartum people. It occurs when the rectus abdominis muscles (six-pack abdominal muscles) separate during pregnancy from being stretched. The separation can make a person’s belly stick out or bulge for months or even years postpartum.

Along with improving muscle tone and burning fat, EMSCULPT NEO is a revolutionary treatment that can also be used to help treat Diastasis Recti. It offers the first non-surgical method for improving this condition which typically affects women after pregnancy.

What is the difference between the original EMSCULPT (Classic) and EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO builds off the legacy of its predecessor EMSCULPT (Classic) and is the first and only non-invasive body shaping solution to combine two energies, radio-frequency (RF) and High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM+) technology.  This simultaneous combination of energy builds muscle at intensities not achievable during a voluntary workout while permanently burning fat.

 EMSCULPT relies solely on advanced HIFEM+ energy to tone up the muscles and achieve fat reduction. EMSCULPT NEO is the world’s first gold standard treatment that combines HIFEM+ with radiofrequency (RF). It blends radiofrequency (RF) heat energy with HIFEM+ using a patented electrode that is found in no other body-contouring device.

Is EMSCUPT NEO safe?

YES! Backed by science, EMSCULPT NEO and the patented high-intensity magnetic field (HIFEM+) technology has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies*. In addition, 30 scientific publications make HIFEM+ the most intensively researched body contouring technology since its introduction in 2018.

With safety and patient comfort as a top priority, there are thermal sensors embedded into each individual applicator, which measure the temperature on the patient’s skin in real-time.

Who is the ideal candidate?

If you can benefit from less fat, and more muscle, EmSculpt NEO may be ideal for you!

If you are looking to eliminate fat for good AND also get defined abs, arms, thighs, or a non-invasive booty lift, EMSCULPT NEO is the solution!

If you are an avid gym-goer and still cannot reach body goals or if you are frustrated by not having enough time for long hours at the gym, and need help finally achieving your body goals,  EMSCULPT NEO is the perfect treatment for you.

During your free consultation, the area(s) will be assessed, you will be fully educated about this amazing treatment, and our overseeing on-site physician will approve your candidacy and tailored plan.

What does EMSCULPT NEO feel like?

The treatment feels like an intensive workout of muscles, along with a heated sensation in the treated area. The heat is very tolerable and feels similar to a hot stone massage.

The intensity level of the muscle contractions is increased by the EMSCULPT NEO Certified Technician during the 30-minute treatment, based on your feedback. The spa-like experience is very comfortable and most patients relax and watch NETFLIX, or close their eyes and doze off.

 The use of portable electronic devices is not recommended since proximity to the EMSCULPT NEO applicator may cause damage to delicate electronics.

Which areas can be treated?

In Canada, there are up to 9 treatable body areas including the Abdomen, Buttocks, Inner Thighs, Outer Thighs, Biceps, Triceps, Quadriceps, Hamstrings, and Calves….Lower Flanks are soon to come, however, CoolSculpting the flanks is a perfect solution.

What is the RF depth of penetration with EMSCULPT NEO?

How deep the heating effects take place is dependent on the fat thickness in individual patients.

How many contractions are produced in a 30-minute session?

In a single EMSCULPT NEO-30-minute session, HIFEM+ produces 20,000 supra maximum contractions! This is equal to doing 20,000 squats or 20,000 abdominal curls in 30 minutes! The muscle contractions are far more powerful than a person can induce on their own through exercise.

When we work out, we train the muscles voluntarily. The muscle fibers relax between each contraction and we also cannot fully isolate the muscle group entirely on its own without involving other muscle groups. Muscle fibers contract only to a maximum of 40% in this case.

Bypassing the brain’s limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts 90%-100% of the muscle fibers within the magnetic field. With EMSCULPT NEO, the muscles do not relax between contractions. The intensities achieved through HIFEM+ stimulation are not achievable during a voluntary gym workout!

Just four, 30-minute weekly sessions of EMSCULPT NEO are equivalent to 12-16 weeks of intense cross-fit training!

How fast will I notice and see results?

Tangible results are felt right after the treatment, similar to an intensive workout of the target area muscles. The underlying muscles require time to adapt and strengthen. Fat cells that are destroyed through apoptosis (fat cell death) during the series of treatments are gradually and naturally eliminated by the body. Visible results continue to improve for weeks to months after the treatment series.

When can I expect to see full results?

Patients typically start to see their new, positive muscle toning results about two weeks after their last (6th) session. EMSCULPT NEO permanent fat removal results are typically fully showcased about four weeks after their last (6th) session.

Is there maintenance required?   

Your expected 30% of fat reduction (on average) is permanent and as long as you maintain your lifestyle and baseline, you will love your NEO results indefinitely!

You can expect maintenance sessions to maintain your new 25% ‘increased muscle mass’ results.

*Please ask us about our Toning Maintenance Packages at reduced VIP rates.*

Does EMSCULPT NEO tighten the skin?

EMSCULPT NEO is not a skin tightening treatment, however, it may result in some skin tightening and firming in the treated area. Why?

Using RF energy, skin tightening is achieved when heating the skin to 42-46 Degrees Celsius. When holding the skin at this temperature we have the ability to stimulate high amounts of collagen which forms the foundation of tightening and youthful structure in the skin. 

Due to the fact that the skin is heated to 42 Degrees Celsius during an EMSCULPT NEO treatment, patients may often experience the exciting and added benefit of some skin tightening.

Is there any downtime?

Like CoolSculpting, there is no downtime with EMSCULPT NEO. Patients return to work, activity and life immediately following the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Patients may experience temporary muscle soreness and temporary redness. With EMSCULPT NEO, patients leave their session feeling excited and typically free of these signs, and can even show off their treated area or exercise that same day!

Are EMSCULPT NEO results permanent?

RF energy causes up to 30% fat burning during each treatment, enhancing the effects of EmSculpt Neo. Fat loss as a result of EmSculpt Neo is permanent and can be sustained indefinitely.

How many sessions are required?

How Many EMSCULPT NEO Treatments are Needed? Consistent with clinical trials conducted on EmSculpt Neo, coupled with our intention to always provide optimal results, at Bense Body, we recommend six-weekly sessions for the ideal candidate. A more tailored plan of more than six-weekly sessions is possible should the patient have more subcutaneous fat to eliminate.

The fat elimination is permanent, however, maintenance is recommended to maintain muscle toning.

EMSCULPT NEO TREATMENT

Am I going to lose weight with EMSCULPT NEO?

Like CoolSculpting, EMSCULPT NEO is intended for fat loss, not weight loss. Fat reduction is not quite the same thing as weight loss. Why?

At a point in our teenage years, the number of fat cells in our bodies is set. Throughout life, we may gain and lose weight, but this does not increase the number of fat cells in our bodies. In adults, the size of the existing fat cells simply increases or decreases with fluctuation in weight. With CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO, these technologies do not just reduce the size of fat cells, they actually permanently destroy the number of fat cells in our body, and our bodies have no way of creating new fat cells!

You may not weigh less with your CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO ‘Bense Body’, but you’ll look trimmed, thinner, and more sculpted, and your clothes will fit so much better!

How long are EMSCULPT NEO sessions?

EMSCULPT NEO sessions last 30 minutes per session, per area. Consistent with clinical trials conducted on EMSCULPT NEO, we recommend a series of six- 30-minute treatments over 2 to 4 weeks: two treatments weekly for two weeks, or 1 treatment weekly for 4 weeks.

How long do Emsculpt Neo results last?

Like CoolSculpting, the 30% (on average) fat reduction achieved with EMSCULPT NEO is permanent! Maintain your lifestyle and baseline weight, and you maintain these permanent results! The 25% muscle growth with EMSCULPT NEO is long-lasting over many months, however, like any training program, there is maintenance required to keep those incredible toning results. We will offer you a toning maintenance plan at a VIP Bense Body rate.

How much does it cost?

The average cost depends on the area(s) to be treated, the number of applicators used, the number of sessions to be performed, and whether or not you are combining this as a package with a tailored CoolSculpting plan.
