If you are unfamiliar with Emsculpt NEO®, it can sound daunting. Emsculpt NEO® is a body sculpting and fat reduction treatment. If you have areas of your body that are exercise- and diet-resistant, Emsculpt NEO® can help.

Many body contouring procedures are surgical and require a recovery period, but Emsculpt NEO® in Edmond is different. With so many body sculpting treatment options on the market, it can be tough to know what you are getting into.

At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics near Edmond, OK, we want you to feel informed and comfortable before your treatment session. There are 10 things you should know before Emsculpt NEO® therapy.

Here are the top 1o things to know before Emsculpt NEO® therapy:

10. Emsculpt NEO® is pain-free & non-invasive

We like to call Emsculpt NEO® in Edmond the most relaxing workout you can do. Most of our patients like to dim the lights and enjoy a podcast or an audiobook during their treatment.

While you won’t feel any pain, you will feel heat and muscle contractions. Our wonderful providers will confirm that you are comfortable throughout your treatment. If you need to readjust or change positions, you are welcome to do so at any point.

Other body sculpting procedures, like liposuction and abdominoplasty, are surgical. These treatments can involve needles, scalpels, and sutures. Emsculpt in Edmond is non-invasive, meaning no medical instruments will enter your body.

How does Emsculpt NEO® in Edmond work?

The Emsculpt NEO® device is like a wide belt. It is carefully secured around the area you wish to address. The “belt” delivers 2 types of therapy via magnetic waves and heat energy.

Emsculpt NEO® uses cutting-edge technology that works from the outside-in, without any need for punctures or incisions. 

Emsculpt NEO®does not require any downtime

Many fat reduction treatments result in months-long recovery periods. Often, after liposuction or a tummy tuck, you will have to stay home from work for at least a week.

Emsculpt NEO® does not require any downtime or a recovery period. You can return to work immediately after your appointment. It is normal to notice muscle soreness after Emsculpt NEO® therapy, just as you would after a strenuous workout.

9. Your Emsculpt NEO® results will keep improving over time

Fat destruction will continue for up to 3 months after your appointment. Emsculpt NEO® uses thermal energy to trigger the death of your fat cells. This process is known as lipolysis.

First, the body will receive signals from Emsculpt NEO® to begin breaking down your fat cells to keep up with the rapid contraction of your muscles. Second, these local fat cells will be metabolized or used up as energy.

Finally, those used up fat cells are expelled from the body as waste. This process takes a bit of time, which is why you will continue to see results from your treatment. 

8. Emsculpt NEO® therapy only takes 30 minutes

Emsculpt NEO® therapy is incredibly convenient, as it only takes about 30 minutes. This treatment causes your muscle tissue to contract very quickly. The rate is equivalent to doing almost 667 crunches a minute.

That means Emsculpt NEO® therapy only needs 30 minutes to complete the equivalent of 20,000 crunches. Most patients return to Renew Wellness & Aesthetics for follow-up sessions to achieve maximum results.

7. Emsculpt NEO® therapy is the first of its kind

No other device has simultaneously delivered radiofrequency and high-intensity focused electromagnetic therapy. This powerful combination means that Emsculpt NEO® not only reduces fat, but also strengthens muscles. 

Emsculpt NEO® is a breakthrough technology in its field. Results of Emsculpt NEO® include tighter skin, stronger muscles, and permanently eliminated fat.

6. Emsculpt NEO® uses radiofrequency

Radiofrequency (RF) is the thermal energy component used in Emsculpt NEO®. It is responsible for the heat you will feel during the treatment. RF has the lowest energy in the electromagnetic spectrum, making it safe to use. 

RF warms the muscles, preparing them for the rapid contractions that will take place during Emsculpt NEO®  treatment. After a few minutes of warming, the local fat cells will reach a temperature that triggers apoptosis—the removal of these cells.

As was mentioned earlier, once the death of these cells has been instigated by Emsculpt NEO®, they will eventually leave your body through the lymphatic system.

5. Emsculpt NEO® uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic therapy 

High-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) therapy is responsible for the muscle contractions you will experience during Emsculpt NEO®. Electromagnetic treatments have been in use for over 60 years.


HIFEM therapy works by artificially activating the muscles using various electrical currents delivered by electrodes. This technology is what allows Emsculpt NEO® to replicate a superhuman workout.

In fact, this innovative therapy stimulates 100% of the muscle tissue in the target area. This is not possible during a regular workout. 

4. Emsculpt NEO® causes you to lose fat and gain muscle

There are other treatments capable of reducing fat like Emsculpt NEO® does. Liposuction, for instance, uses thin tubes to extract fat. Some procedures imitate strengthened muscles by tightening them unnaturally. A tummy tuck usually includes removing muscle tissue and suturing the muscles closer together. 

Emsculpt NEO® is the only treatment that causes you to lose fat and gain muscle. Emsculpt NEO® also relies on kickstarting your body’s natural processes rather than working around them. 

Combining RF and HIFEM has proven to be incredibly successful. Clinical studies have found evidence of these astonishing results.

What are the results of Emsculpt NEO®?

In clinical studies, patients on average experienced 30% fat reduction  and 25% muscle gain after only 4 non-invasive 30-minute treatments.

It is important to note that Emsculpt NEO® causes permanent fat cell elimination. However, the remaining fat cells can still increase in size if you don’t implement a healthy diet and exercise regimen. 

With proper lifestyle habits and a regular maintenance plan, you can enjoy the results of your treatment indefinitely!

3. Emsculpt NEO® is FDA-approved for 10 areas of the body

Emsculpt NEO® may be a relatively new device, but it has been proven to be completely safe. It has been FDA-approved for 10 different areas of the body. 

Emsculpt NEO® can be administered to the abdomen, buttocks, inner thighs, outer thighs, front thighs, back thighs, biceps, triceps, calves, and obliques.

Each region is a common area for stubborn fat to accumulate. With Emsculpt NEO®, you can overcome these frustrating fat deposits around your body. However, if it’s not your body but your face that frustrates you, there is a solution.

2. Emface® is Emsculpt NEO® for your face

Emface® is a non-surgical facelift. It uses very similar technology to Emsculpt NEO®

Emface® is the most recent advancement in face-lifting technology. Like Emsculpt NEO®, Emface® uses electrical stimulation and radiofrequency (RF) energy to create fantastic results without needles or downtime.


Emface® blends high-intensity focused electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES) with RF thermal energy to prompt specific muscle contractions. RF heats the dermis, which increases the production of collagen and elastin fibers. This results in smoother, more desirably contoured skin. 

At the same time, the HIFES technology restores and elevates facial tissues by selectively contracting muscles. This produces increased density and quality of muscle structure within your face.

Clinical studies have demonstrated impressive results. Patients have reportedly seen 37% fewer wrinkles, 23% more lift, and 30% increase in muscle tone. Overall, there is a 95% satisfaction rate among patients.

Emface® is administered in 20-minute treatment sessions. You will not experience extreme soreness in your face. Emface® is available to men and women 18 years of age or older.
