Have you tried every diet on the internet and every sport for body sculpting, but nothing seems to work for eliminating that one trouble spot? You’re not alone. And that’s why we’re writing about Emsculpting today!

The problem is, despite your efforts, it can take more than diet and exercise to get the body shape you desire!

But there’s hope for you and everyone struggling to burn fat and build muscles.

Your dream body is more within reach than you imagined – with a little help from technology and Emsculpt.

At Nava Health, aesthetic treatments like Emsculpt are accessible because we’re committed to bringing the latest technologies and therapies to ensure you feel and look your best.

So, keep reading to discover everything about the Emsculpt NEO – a revolutionary technology that uses electromagnetic energy to reduce fat and grow your muscles at the same time! What’s not to like?

What is Emsculpt NEO?

Emsculpt Neo is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical, and non-invasive body-shaping treatment. As we indicated above, it simultaneously eliminates fat and builds muscle. It does this using synchronized radio frequency (RF) combined with high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM).

The applicators of the Emsculpt machine sit directly on the areas where you have a concentration of unwanted fat, such as

  • buttocks,
  • abdomen,
  • arms,
  • thighs, and
  • calves.

The procedure is painless and safe, with no preparation, side effects, or downtime. Each session lasts less than your average gym workout, and you can start to see incredible results with only four sessions.

With one million treatments worldwide already, it’s clear how popular Emsculpt is!

For a 30-minute treatment, you can work in more than one area of your body and get 20 thousand supramaximal muscle contractions, the equivalent of 20 thousand squats. That’s correct! Those 6-pack abs or that toned Brazilian butt were never so easy to achieve as with Emsculpting.

Does that sound too good to be true? It’s not! It’s proven effective – and it’s available for you at Nava Health.

How Does the Emsculpt Machine Work its Magic?

This is the biology bit, but we’ll make it easy!

1 When exercising, muscle contractions increase the demand for energy from fat cells while releasing adrenaline.

2 Adrenaline is a hormone neurotransmitter that sends signals to the fat cells to initiate lipolysis – fat breakdown.

3 With the help of the Emsculpt NEO machine and HIFEM technology, the target areas in your body receive high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves that stimulate supramaximal muscle contractions. (That means “beyond the usual fixed maximum limit!” In other words, higher intensity than achievable during a standard workout.)

4 These intense contractions enhance the release of adrenaline and lipolysis, increasing the temperature of your subcutaneous fat and destroying fat cells – especially in those resistant pockets where fat typically collects, like the belly and thighs.

5 Your body’s metabolism will naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells, while, at the same time, the contractions boost protein strands and the growth of new muscle fibers.

That’s why Emsculpting is effective for both muscle building and fat reduction. Two procedures in one!

What Results Can I Expect?

As mentioned, you’ll notice your body’s fat loss and muscle toning within 3 to 4 weeks after your last session. The protocol requires a minimum of 4 sessions, spaced over 2 to 3 days, but the treatment can continue longer according to your desired results.

Your practitioner may also recommend different settings in the machine to meet your goals. In areas such as the buttocks or the arms, for instance, it’s possible to set the device for building muscles only, without the option of burning fat.

Because the high-intensity, focused electromagnetic energy causes muscle contractions that are impossible to reach with exercises, the results are much faster and more visible, with an average of 16% increase in muscle mass and 19% fat reduction. Optimal results may reach 30% fat reduction and a 25% increase in muscle volume.

Are the Results Permanent?

You can’t have everything, right?

Results are not permanent but long-lasting, so long as you keep your side of the deal by having a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and exercise! On average, your muscles will continue growing up to six months after your last treatment. They will not begin to atrophy until 9 to 12 months after you finish your protocol.

The same rule applies to body fat. Although the fat cells are gone for good after being destroyed, any fat cells that remain in the treated area may become more prominent if you put on weight. So, keeping up with exercise and a healthy diet is paramount for lasting results.

Is Emsculpting for Everyone?

Not always. If you’re pregnant or have metal implants, you cannot benefit from Emsculpting.

In addition, to be an ideal candidate for Emsculpt NEO, you should be healthy and within a normal BMI. If you’re overweight, the electromagnetic pulses may not reach some target muscles, and results get compromised.

But if you’re a healthy man or woman looking for a non-invasive, efficient, and fast way of eliminating localized fat and building muscle, you’re a good candidate.
