EMSCULPT NEO takes the legacy of its predecessor, EMSCULPT, to the next level by utilizing a combination of high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy and radiofrequency energy.

HIFEM technology triggers thousands of muscle contractions each session to deliver the equivalent of 20,000 squats or crunches. This allows you to take back control of your workouts and achieve results that can’t be replicated with even the most rigorous exercises. Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy raises the temperature of subcutaneous fat until it reaches levels that permanently damage fat cells. The treated fat cells are gradually flushed out of the body through natural metabolic processes.

EMSCULPT NEO offers dramatic results and contours your body with an innovative approach that has been scientifically proven to build muscle and eliminate fat quickly and effectively.


EMSCULPT NEO and the classic EMSCULPT are both powerful body shaping tools, but there are key differences between these two devices. EMSCULPT uses only HIFEM technology for muscle strengthening and toning. EMSCULPT NEO uses two different technologies, HIFEM and radiofrequency, to deliver better results in less time. EMSCULPT NEO is the first body contouring treatment in the world to combine these technologies.

With EMSCULPT, patients saw up to 16 percent increase in muscle mass on average and may also have experienced up to 19 percent reduction in fat. With EMSCULPT NEO, those numbers jump to a possible 25 percent increase in muscle mass and 30 percent increase in fat reduction.

EMSCULPT NEO’s innovative approach to body contouring makes it suitable for a wider range of patients. The ideal candidate for the original EMSCULPT is relatively fit already, with a body mass index (BMI) under 30. The EMSCULPT NEO can treat patients with a BMI up to 35, making it an effective option for those looking for fat reduction in addition to the muscle-toning effect.

Who is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is FDA-cleared for both men and women with a track record for producing safe and reliable results. Although EMSCULPT NEO isn’t a weight-loss procedure or meant to replace a healthy diet or exercise, the treatment is ideal for anyone who wants to sculpt more defined abs or tone common problem areas. You may be a good candidate if you:

  • Have stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise
  • Need an extra boost to reach your fitness goals
  • Are at or near your goal weight
  • Can commit to more than one treatment
  • Want to see results with no downtime or recovery

Since EMSCULPT NEO is noninvasive and requires no anesthesia, incisions or recovery, it’s a great option for those who want to avoid surgical solutions such as liposuction. EMSCULPT NEO also provides lift and definition naturally by increasing muscle tone in treated areas, so you won’t have to worry about artificial-looking results that clash with your body shape.

What Will My EMSCULPT NEO  Treatment Be Like?

Your EMSCULPT NEO treatment at Lucienne will be a comfortable and convenient experience, lasting about 30 minutes. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll begin by identifying your treatment areas and reviewing your aesthetic goals. You’ll then sit back and relax as the device paddles are placed on your abdomen or buttocks to administer the HIFEM and radiofrequency energies.

No anesthesia or numbing cream is necessary and most patients find the treatment to be very comfortable, often reading, watching TV or chatting as the device gently triggers fat cell death and induces thousands of muscle contractions per minute. You can feel the muscle contractions as well as a heating sensation that is comparable to hot stone massage. At Lucienne, your EMSCULPT NEO treatment will be tailored just for you and our skilled practitioners can adjust the level of intensity based on your goals.

After your treatment, you may feel a little soreness or muscle fatigue like you would after a good workout, but there will be no downtime or recovery period. You’ll be able to return to work or home and resume all normal activities without worrying about adverse side effects. EMSCULPT NEO treatments are so easy and convenient, many patients schedule them during their lunch break or any time they have a small gap in their busy schedules.

What Results Can I Expect from EMSCULPT?

You’ll see tangible effects immediately after your EMSCULPT NEO session, but the most noticeable results will develop over the next two to four weeks. Improvements will continue for up to six months, enhancing the tone, shape and firmness of targeted muscles. EMSCULPT NEO is extremely effective at sculpting problem areas that don’t respond to diet or exercise and after a series of treatments, patients may see up to a 25 percent increase in muscle mass.

In addition to building muscle, EMSCULPT NEO triggers a metabolic reaction that can reduce body fat by up to 30 percent, helping you achieve the slimmer contours and sculpted silhouette you’ve always wanted. On average, the best time to assess the final results is three months after the last treatment session.

EMSCULPT NEO builds upon the benefits of diet and exercise and your results will last if you remain committed to an active lifestyle. EMSCULPT NEO is not intended to replace your fitness routine, however, and patients who don’t maintain their results will not enjoy them for as long. For many, EMSCULPT NEO is used to break through the workout plateau that prevents them from losing those last few inches or toning up, or to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle with renewed motivation. Either way, diet and exercise are essential to ensure the longevity of your results.

How Many EMSCULPT Treatments Will I Need?

The number of EMSCULPT NEO sessions you’ll need will depend on your goals, but most patients receive a series of four treatments spaced a few days apart. Although you may need more than four treatments to achieve a desired outcome, our experienced providers can target multiple areas in a single session to help you reach your goals more quickly. Your EMSCULPT NEO treatment will also be tailored to your specific needs, providing highly individualized results that complement your natural figure and build muscle where you need it most.
