How does EMSCULPT NEO work?
EMSCULPT NEO uses synchronized radio frequency (RF) and HIFEM+ energies to break down fat cells and build muscle simultaneously — in one session! The best part is that each treatment session only takes 30 minutes. It’s faster than any class at the gym and more effective, too.
How EMSCULPT NEO Burns Fat
EMSCULPT NEO works by heating the fat cells and causing them to break down. Fat cells are eliminated through apoptosis, the process of fat cells being irreversibly damaged and gradually removed from the body. On average, clinical studies revealed a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat (at three months) with EMSCULPT NEO treatment. 
The warming effect also has many benefits for the muscles, including :
- Increased blood flow into the active tissue
- Increased delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the fibers
- Faster removal of toxins
- Increased patient comfort
It also ramps up collagen and elastin production. These proteins keep skin firm and allow it “snap back.” Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen and elastin, which is why our skin starts to sag. EMSCULPT NEO helps to reverse this process by stimulating the production of these proteins.
How EMSCULPT NEO Sculpts
At the same time that the fat is being gently heated, EMSCULPT NEO’s high-intensity magnetic energy (HIFEM+) causes the targeted muscles to contract. HIFEM+ stands for high-intensity focused electromagnetic field. This type of energy differs from the electrical stimulation often used for muscle toning because it is a more intensely concentrated form of energy that penetrates more deeply into the muscle tissue. 
Applying this energy forces the muscles to adapt and grow stronger. HIFEM+ energy bypasses brain limitations to force contraction of muscle fibers at intensities not achievable during voluntary workouts (like situps and squats), resulting in average growth of 25% in muscle volume, according to clinical studies. 
EMSCULPT NEO Treatment Areas
We can use EMSCULPT NEO to treat the following areas:
What are the Benefits of EMSCULPT NEO?
For patients who want to avoid the scalpel or are not able to take an extended amount of time off from their life or work, FDA-approved EMSCULPT NEO has many benefits, including
- Up to a 30% fat reduction in the treated area
- Up to a 25% increase in muscle volume in the treated area
- Quick and non-invasive treatment
- No downtime
- Build muscle without hitting the gym
- Eliminate fat without expending energy
- Safe for people up to a BMI of 35
- Long-lasting results
An Effective Addition
Another unique benefit of EMSCULPT NEO is that it can be combined with other body contouring treatments for optimal efficacy and results! Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery offers the latest in-demand aesthetic technologies that can significantly improve your outcome.
EMSCULPT NEO can be combined with other non-invasive treatments such as
CoolSculpting, Green Low Level Laser Therapy, and Z Wave for additional fat reduction. Patients wanting to tighten skin as well as eliminate fat can benefit from Bodytite. Bodytite is frequently also combined with liposuction, which can be a great way to reveal the muscle definition that you’ve achieved from your EMSCULPT NEO sessions! Another advantage of EMSCULPT NEO is how it can help patients that have undergone an abdominoplasty regain core strength. When combined with both abdominoplasty and liposuction, EMSCULPT NEO is the finishing touch for the perfect set of abs, and the toned, firm midsection of your dreams.
Ready to see what EMSCULPT NEO can do for you? This is indeed the treatment of the future. Patients are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Koneru to see if they are candidates for EMSCULPT NEO.
Who is a good candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?
EMSCULPT NEO is an excellent option for both men and women looking for a way to tone their muscles and eliminate fat without surgery. It is also a good option for people who are at or near their ideal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that they would like to get rid of. There are minimal risks associated with the procedure, so it is safe for most people.
However, people who should not use EMSCULPT NEO are
- Pregnant women
- People with pacemakers
- People with metal implants
- People with bleeding disorders
Dr. Koneru offers an exciting array of treatments for any cosmetic concerns you have. If EMSCULPT NEO is unsuitable, he will work with you to find the best treatment option.
During your consultation for EMSCULPT NEO, Dr. Koneru will assess your goals and concerns. He will also perform a physical exam to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Tell Dr. Koneru if you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications, as this could affect your eligibility for EMSCULPT NEO.
Preparation for EMSCULPT NEO
There is no special preparation required for EMSCULPT NEO.  You can eat and drink what you want before and after the procedure. However, you should avoid sun exposure before the treatment session, as this can make the skin more sensitive to the energy of EMSCULPT NEO.
How is EMSCULPT NEO performed?
During your EMSCULPT NEO treatment, you will lie or sit in a comfortable treatment room. We will apply the device and strap it on the area for treatment.
You may feel a warm sensation, and intense muscle contractions as the energy penetrates your muscle tissue; however, the treatment is not painful, and the intensity can be controlled during the session.
When your treatment is complete, we will remove the device, and you can go about your day as usual. There is no downtime associated with EMSCULPT NEO, so you can return to work or your other activities immediately after the treatment.
The treatment will last for 30 minutes for each muscle group treated.
Recovery from EMSCULPT NEO
There is no recovery period after EMSCULPT NEO. You may have muscle soreness in the treated area for a few days, but this is normal and will resolve independently. You can use ice to help reduce any discomfort. There is no downtime, so there is no need to put your life on pause!
What Can I Expect after EMSCULPT NEO?
After your EMSCULPT NEO treatment, you may feel like you have worked out, as your muscles will be tired; this is normal and will go away after a day or two.
You will start to see results after a few weeks, and these results will continue to improve for up to 6 months. Therefore, while we suggest 4-6 treatment sessions, the results of EMSCULPT NEO are long-lasting, so you will not need continued maintenance treatments like you would with other body contouring procedures.
Patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise to help prolong the results of EMSCULPT NEO.
What is the Cost of EMSCULPT NEO in Texas?
The cost of EMSCULPT NEO in Texas will vary depending on the number of sessions you need and the treatment area. Dr. Koneru will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your goals and budget. Ready to learn more about EMSCULPT NEO? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Koneru today.
