Staying fit takes hard work and dedication. Making sure to eat right, exercise regularly and get the right amount of rest is essential to maintaining a healthy and fit physique. And when you are as disciplined about your lifestyle habits, you want to see the fruits of your labor. However, there are times when even the best health practices just aren’t enough to reduce stubborn pockets of fat and improve muscle tone. For the athletes and fitness enthusiasts who need a little extra help tightening and toning to achieve their ideal bodies, there’s EMSCULPT® NEO.

Emsculpt NEO LogoEMSCULPT NEO is a unique noninvasive body contouring treatment that helps build muscle while burning fat. EMSCULPT NEO uses its patented High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology, to help activate deep muscle contractions and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate fat metabolism which can result in better definition in many areas of the body.

Dr. Jennifer Harrington has been recognized as one of the best female plastic surgeons in the area, and it’s easy to see why. Dr. Harrington takes an individualized approach to address your specific needs. During your one-on-one consultation, she’ll carefully listen to your cosmetic goals and map out a plan customized to your needs.

Who Is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is intended for healthy, fit men and women who are looking to improve their body contours by addressing stubborn pockets of fat and improving muscle tone. It can be effective for people with a BMI up to 35.

EMSCULPT NEO is able to improve the appearance of many areas of the body:

EMSCULPT NEO is not recommended for those who have metal implants or pacemakers. If you are needing to address larger amounts of fatty tissue, CoolSculpting® or liposuction may be better options.

Dr. Harrington and our highly skilled staff at Harrington + Associates Plastic Surgery will help you create an individualized treatment plan designed to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Your EMSCULPT NEO Treatment

During your treatment, you will either lie on your stomach or your back depending on which body part you are wanting to target. For addressing your abdomen, one EMSCULPT applicator will be applied to your abdomen and secured with a binding strap while you lie on your back. To target your buttocks, two applicators will be applied with one on each buttock while you lie on your stomach.

Once the applicators are securely placed, your EMSCULPT NEO treatment begins. A series of varying muscle contraction patterns are used to maximize your muscles’ workload causing them to adapt. EMSCULPT NEO will do all the work while you relax. During treatment, you will feel your muscles contracting, but it should not feel overly uncomfortable. Each 30-minute treatment session is capable of delivering nearly 20,000 deep muscular contractions within that short time frame which can’t be achieved with regular sit-ups or squats alone.

EMSCULPT NEO treatments take about 30 minutes per session. A minimum of 4 sessions scheduled about 5 to 10 days apart is recommended for optimal results. Every package of 4 treatments also includes a bottle of ALASTIN TRANSFORM (a $200 value) to further improve skin tightening and firmness!


EMSCULPT NEO is considered a lunchtime treatment as it takes just 30 minutes to complete one treatment. Its noninvasiveness allows you to get in, get out and get back to your daily routine with zero need for pre/post treatment preparation or downtime.

Because of the intensity of the muscle contractions, you may experience muscles soreness 24 to 48 hours following your session. Many people compare this feeling to an intense workout minus the sweat.

Although individual experiences vary, many men and women notice a difference in their appearance soon after completing their first EMSCULPT NEO treatment. Optimal results are typically observed 90 days after the final session and can continue improving for several weeks after the treatment.

Even though EMSCULPT NEO is effective at addressing excess fat cells and improving muscle tone, you still need to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine for long-lasting results. After your 4 initial EMSCULPT NEO treatments, it is recommended to schedule follow-up treatments every 3 to 6 months to maintain maximum results.

Next Steps

If you have stubborn trouble zones that don’t respond to diet and exercise, then EMSCULPT NEO could be an excellent option in helping you achieve your aesthetic goals without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.
