Hundreds of crunches, thousands of squats, millions of planks — and you still don’t have the toned, defined look you were hoping for. OK, maybe the numbers are a wee bit exaggerated, but you get the idea: Sometimes, despite a lot of hard work, your results fall short. And that can leave you feeling discouraged, dissatisfied, and frustrated.
Fortunately, there’s an alternative, and it’s one that doesn’t involve any more hours clocked at the gym. It’s called EMSCULPT NEO®, and it can help you define your muscles and shed stubborn fat while you lie back and relax.
EMSCULPT NEO uses a combination of two cutting-edge technologies to help patients at Vein Specialists Institute get the slim, toned look they want, even in stubborn areas that don’t respond to exercise. In this post, Ken Jesser, MD, offers a brief overview of EMSCULPT NEO to help you decide if it just might be the treatment you’ve been looking for to tone your body.
EMSCULPT NEO is a body contouring system that helps women and men tone up in just a few sessions. Body contouring is so popular that nearly 400,000 treatments are performed every year in the United States.
While some body contouring systems have just one purpose — to get rid of fat or tone up muscles — EMSCULPT NEO can help you do both. That’s because the EMSCULPT NEO system harnesses both radiofrequency (RF) energy and electromagnetic energy, two separate types of energy that work together to give you results.
RF energy specifically focuses on stubborn fat, gently heating deeper layers of tissue where fat is located. The heat breaks down fat cell walls, enabling your body to absorb the fatty debris and eliminate it over time.
Electromagnetic energy waves work differently. These focused bursts of energy cause thousands of intense muscle contractions in every 30-minute session. It’s like doing thousands of reps in just one half-hour session — something you simply can’t duplicate in a regular workout. These intense contractions stimulate muscle adaptation and rebuilding to achieve toned contours in just a few sessions.
EMSCULPT NEO is completely noninvasive and performed right in our office. Before your treatment session, Dr. Jesser meets with you to discuss your goals and map out your treatment. While EMSCULPT NEO is FDA-approved and a good choice for most people, Dr. Jesser reviews your medical history, too, to make sure it’s right for you.
During your session, our team places the applicators on your skin over the treatment zone. The applicators do all the work, toning your muscles and gently warming and eliminating subcutaneous fat, so your skin looks firmer, too.
The intensity of your treatment can be adjusted so you stay comfortable throughout. Plus, the gentle massage action toward the end of your session can help eliminate the toxins and lactic acid that typically cause muscle soreness after working out, so you can avoid the familiar stiffness and discomfort that often follows strenuous workouts.
At the end of each half-hour session, you’ll be able to go right back to your regular activities. While it’s not uncommon to experience some results after a single treatment, most patients have a series of four treatments over a two-week period to achieve maximum benefits.
EMSCULPT NEO is ideal for people who are at or near their ideal weight and have specific areas they want to tone up. The results of your treatment should continue to improve over the weeks following your final session. Furthermore, maintenance sessions can help you keep your results.
If you’re ready to finally get the visible results of all your hard work and effort, EMSCULPT NEO could be just what you’re looking for. To learn more, request an appointment online or over the phone with Vein Specialists Institute today. We have offices in Palm Desert and La Quinta, California.
