What Is EMSCULPT NEO, and Why Is Every Personal Trainer Recommending It?

Wyckoff Medical Spa by the Breslow Center

If you’ve been working to sculpt your abs, butt, or thighs and just can’t seem to get the results you want, you owe it to yourself to learn about EMSCULPT NEO. This non-invasive muscle-toning technique is often recommended by personal trainers for more definition in trouble spots, and it’s available at Injxcellence Med Spa in New Jersey.  


EMSCULPT NEO is a non-surgical contouring treatment that strengthens muscles and reduces fat. The device combines electromagnetic (that’s where the EM comes from) technology to contract muscles, and radiofrequency energy to help with superficial fat melting and skin tightening. Treatment is performed in 30-minute sessions and is FDA-cleared for the sculpting of the abdomen, thighs, arms, calves, and buttocks. 

While soreness similar to a tough workout is normal after each session, patients do not need any down time and can return to their normal daily routine right away.

The Muscle-Toning Benefits of Supramaximal Contractions

Even when following a strict weight-lifting regimen and low-fat diet, some patients’ bodies just can’t gain the desired muscle mass or lose excess fat in certain areas. This is largely because a  voluntary squat or abdominal crunch engages only 30% to 50% of the targeted muscle. EMSCULPT technology induces 20,000 muscle contractions at 100% engagement, resulting in increased muscle mass. And as the muscles contract, they burn a high amount of calories and diminish local fat stores—resulting in a more sculpted body. 

Patients notice some muscle toning after the first 30-minute treatment, but maximum results are evident after a two-week period of several sessions spaced two or three days apart. Average final results are a 25% increase in muscle mass and up to a 30% reduction in fat in troubled areas.

Why Do Personal Trainers Recommend EMSCULPT?

Personal trainers love EMSCULPT NEO because it does more than improve the appearance of the body; it makes workouts easier and more effective. For instance, someone who has a weak core might not be able to strengthen abdominal muscles with typical crunches and planks, due to back pain. After EMSCULPT treatment, the abs are stronger and thus can handle a better core workout. Even women who have diastasis after pregnancy have found that EMSCULPT contractions work effectively enough to close the gap between their abdominal muscles. 

Likewise, stronger gluteal muscles assist with pelvic, hip, and trunk motions and help distribute load throughout the lower back—all of which plays a part in improved posture and reducing back pain during workouts.

Who Does EMSCULPT Work For?

EMSCULPT NEO is ideal for patients with a body mass index of 30% or lower—typically those who are within 20 pounds of their goal weight. If body fat percentage is higher, results won’t be as visible. This is why our doctors recommend that some patients lose weight before beginning the treatment.

Because of its electromagnetic waves, EMSCULPT NEO is not recommended for individuals with a pacemaker or any other metal or electronics implanted in their body. Patients who have complicated hernias or have had hernia repair are also not good candidates.

EMSCULPT NEO Is Not a Replacement for Exercise and a Healthy Diet

Does EMSCULPT work? It certainly does, and personal trainers can help their clients maintain the muscle gained from treatments. However, if patients stop working out and begin eating poorly, results won’t last as long. Muscles quickly shrink back to their normal size and fat deposits will return. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will extend the time between maintenance treatments, which is typically around every four months.
