Emsculpt NEO is the latest, most advanced non-invasive body contouring technology to achieve more toned and defined contours. Combining its predecessor’s high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) power with radio-frequency, Emsculpt NEO builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously! Emsculpt NEO contracts the muscles over 20,000 times in a matter of 30 minutes while bringing fat cells to a comfortable yet, effective 113°F. After four sessions spaced a week apart, patients see stronger and sharper muscle definition in their abdomen, arms, legs, and butt. With its quick treatment time and zero downtime, Emsculpt NEO is the perfect addition for those with a schedule too busy for time-consuming workouts.
With her suite of other non-surgical aesthetic procedures, Dr. Mylissa Graber is proud to give her patients their desired cosmetic appearance with no downtime needed. If you would like to see how Emsculpt NEO can tone your muscles and shed a few extra pounds, please don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation at our Delray Beach Medical Boutique.

How HIFEM Builds Muscles
In the world of aesthetic procedures, building stronger muscles is often overlooked for ridding the body of unwanted fat. While shedding unwanted fat is necessary for accentuating your contours, unwanted fat only comprise approximately 25% of our body’s composition. For men and women, however, muscle tissue comprises 42% and 36% of our body composition respectively. To build stronger muscles, Emsculpt NEO’s HIFEM technology induces supramaximal contractions to trigger hypertrophy in the muscle tissues. A coil inside the Emsculpt NEO device sends pulses of electromagnetic energy. This energy stretches the muscle fibers and relaxes them between contractions, causing micro-tears in the tissue. The brain responds with restorative proteins like heat shock proteins to strengthen and prepare the muscles for an encounter with another workload of the same intensity. Over time, as the healing properties thicken the fibers, the muscle becomes stronger, more defined, and more toned.
One Repetition Equals One Contraction
While these contractions occur during a workout, they only happen when we do one repetition: one repetition equals one contraction. So, imagine doing one exercise 20,000 times in 30 minutes. Even for the professional athlete, this feat seems lightyears out of reach. But, that’s exactly what Emsculpt NEO’s HIFEM technology does! By taking muscles past the point of fatigue, research has shown that target muscles grow 20% two weeks after Emsculpt NEO. Because of this, it is the perfect addition to any muscle-building program.
How Radio-Frequency Burns Fat
Wedged between the muscle and the skin rests a blanket of subcutaneous fat. Unlike other types of fat, like visceral fat, subcutaneous fat is oftentimes unwavering in changes to diet and exercise. Even after the body has burned most of its adipose storage, it is reluctant to shed its subcutaneous fat. This reluctance is because subcutaneous fat helps the body regulate heat loss, stop the spread of dermal infection, and protect vital organs from external pressures. To help the body shed subcutaneous fat, Emsculpt NEO’s radiofrequency energy heats only the fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. When the radiofrequency energy brings the fat cells up to around 113°F and sustains them there for the session, they lose their cellular integrity and begin the process of cell death. Over the next few days after your Emsculpt NEO treatment, the fat cells will gradually absorb into the body and be processed through our excretion system. Studies have shown that this technology flattens and shrinks the subcutaneous fat cells by 33%.
How Emsculpt NEO Works
Unlike its predecessor, Emsculpt NEO combines the power of HIFEM and radiofrequency energy to better tone, define, and strengthen your muscles. When used simultaneously, these two technologies strengthen the other’s effects. When muscles are placed under mechanical stress and hotter temperatures, the body releases more heat shock proteins and other restorative properties to aid in tissue regeneration. This increase leads to thicker, stronger muscle fibers. Likewise, when HIFEM technology triggers muscle contractions, the body sends fat cells to the treated areas for energy support. So, with HIFEM alone, patients can burn a little fat. But, when the two are combined in an all-in-one approach, they magnify each other and achieve better results than any other treatment of its kind.
About Dr. Mylissa’s Medical Boutique
Dr. Mylissa Graber has over 15 years of experience in the medical community, helping patients achieve their ideal cosmetic image. She and her medical boutique staff are committed to giving their patients the best, most advanced care in the aesthetics industry. With a wide array of different non-surgical procedures, Dr. Mylissa’s Medical Boutique can treat just about any cosmetic concern. If you are interested in learning more about Emsculpt NEO or any of our other services, please schedule a personal consultation with us today!
If this is your first time with us, we will begin with a brief physical examination and a new patient intake interview. Emsculpt NEO is FDA-approved to treat patients with a healthy BMI score. So, we will determine your BMI at this time. Then, we will listen to your cosmetic concerns. Whether you wish to see more tone in your abdomen, legs, butt, or arms, we will note your trouble spots and begin constructing your personalized treatment plan. We believe in treating the person, not the problem, and your personalized treatment plan will reflect just that. Since Emsculpt NEO is a quick and simple procedure, other services are easy to add. Whether it’s facial aesthetic care or other body contouring procedures, we will be happy to answer any questions you have and add other procedures to your treatment plan.
Since Emsculpt NEO is an easy, non-invasive procedure, preparation is fairly minimal. We do recommend our patients to come with a fairly empty stomach because the HIFEM pulses may feel more uncomfortable if you’ve recently eaten. Because no anesthesia is used, you will be able to walk out of our offices under your own power and jump straight back into your schedule.
The Emsculpt NEO device is an adjustable applicator that attaches directly to your skin. Patients can change the HIFEM or thermal power to maximal comfort and effectiveness. Over the next 30 minutes, the targeted muscles will feel warm and tight. The tightness is similar to the “burn” you feel when you’re exercising. If it becomes too uncomfortable, switch the dial to a lower setting or let one of our staff members know. After 30 minutes, you will be able to leave or have another area treated. We space four treatments out by a week to make sure the muscle fibers have the appropriate time to heal.
Recovery & Results
After an Emsculpt NEO session, your muscles may feel like they do after a workout: sore and tight. It is best during this time to not try and overwork these muscles. The fibers need adequate time to heal before your next session. A couple of weeks after your final session you will notice the treated area will be slimmer and stronger. The muscles will be more defined and not as veiled by the layer of subcutaneous fat. Since the fat-burning process is ongoing, you will continue to see results solidify for the next few weeks!
Another Way to Lose Fat: CoolSculpting
For those interested in losing fat, there’s another way to flatten and shrink subcutaneous fat cells–and it’s quite the opposite of Emsculpt NEO. With CoolSculpting, fat cells are plunged to sub-freezing temperatures and held there. At these low temperatures (much like at the high temperatures with Emsculpt NEO), the fat cells are unable to keep their cellular integrity and release from their connective tissue. Over time, the body absorbs and releases the fat cells, leaving behind slimmer, more toned contours!
