What Is The Difference Between EmSculpt Vs. EmSculpt Neo?

Many people work hard to get fit but need a little extra help toning their muscles and shrinking those stubborn body fat areas.

Non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction procedures Emsculpt and Emscult Neo are becoming increasingly popular. These body sculpting services are very similar, but the EmSculpt Neo has a bit more to offer with advanced features. 

What is the difference between these two treatments? Let’s take a closer look.

EmSculpt vs. EmSculpt Neo

As we mentioned before, these two non-surgical muscle-toning procedures are comparable. However, the one major difference between the EmSculpt and EmSculpt Neo procedures can make a big difference in your results. 


EmSculpt utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to activate muscle contractions. These contractions are more intense than those you would have during a rigorous workout, contributing to more muscle building and toning. 


On the other hand, the EmSculpt Neo utilizes the same HIFEM energy, but it also includes radiofrequency (RF). This type of energy stimulates new muscle growth and ab conditioning through contractions, but the result is that you will have increased fat reduction, too. 

The EmSculpt Neo tends to produce more results in less time. Most EmSculpt Neo sessions last for just 30 minutes, and you start to see results over the first four weeks. 

EmSculpt Neo also works well for patients with a higher body mass index (BMI) of up to 35. 

EmSculpt Neo Treatment Areas

Both EmSculpt and EmSculpt Neo are FDA-approved to treat the following areas: 

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Calves

If you are interested in targeting fat in a different body area, such as the thighs, you may need to stick with the EmSculpt. The EmSculpt Neo FDA-cleared device is not approved for this particular area. However, the newer, more updated treatment version has better benefits than the traditional EmSculpt when eliminating fat and building muscle mass. 

EmSculpt Neo Results 

When it comes to treatment results, your provider will help you determine the treatment that makes the most sense for your body goals. EmSculpt Neo boasts some impressive statistics, and patients are often highly satisfied with their results. 

Over approximately four weeks, most patients see about a 25 percent increase in muscle mass and a 30 percent decrease in fat. Around the waist, they see up to six centimeters drop off their total circumference. 

Those who are struggling with abdominal separation (known medically as diastasis recti) may also benefit from a 19 percent reduction in abdominal muscle separation.

If you are treating the buttocks, approximately 80 percent of patients notice a visible lifting effect in this area after treatment. After all, one 30-minute Emsculpt Neo session is equivalent to doing 20,000 squats.
