Emsculpt NEO

Despite the many significant advances in non-surgical body contouring technology, simultaneous fat reduction along with muscle toning have not been possible in one treatment until now… But that changed when EMSCULPT NEO was introduced, becoming the first non-invasive contouring device to both reduce stubborn fat and build muscle at the same time! Dr. Frank Barone, a nationally recognized board-certified plastic surgeon, and EVOLV Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics located in Toledo, now provide EMSCULPT NEO treatments along with a complete line of non-invasive offerings for your every aesthetic need.


EMSCULPT NEO is the first and only non-surgical body contouring device that both stimulates muscle growth and eliminate excess fat with no downtime required. It accomplishes this by using both FDA approved synchronized radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology.

RF heating causes fat cells to disrupt and eventually to be expelled by the body, while also warming up muscles for simultaneous HIFEM treatment. Meanwhile, HIFEM pulses stimulate muscle cells in a way that bypasses the brain’s involvement in the involuntary movement. This allows the muscle fibers to contract with a high intensity not achievable through normal exercise, building new muscle and strengthening existing tissue to tone and tighten the treatment area. The RF heating effect also can tighten and improve skin tone.

Candidates for EMSCULPT NEO

Many body types may be a candidate for EMSCULPT NEO at EVOLV Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics. Anyone close to their ideal body weight who wants a toning and fat-burning solution to stubborn areas may also benefit.  EMSCULPT NEO can be used on patients with a BMI of up to 35, although it is not directly a weight loss technology.

Some conditions and other medical procedures may make you unqualified for this procedure, so it’s best to talk to Dr. Frank Barone or one of the certified EVOLV professionals at EVOLV to find out if EMSCULPT NEO is right for you.

What to Expect from EMSCULPT NEO Treatment?

As the first of its kind, EMSCULPT NEO provides significant dual results in both permanent fat reduction and muscle toning. According to clinically proven studies, EMSCULPT NEO can reduce fat by 30% and increase building muscle by 25% in treatment areas, leading to a tight and more toned appearance. Some improvement in skin tone was also documented in these clinical trials.

EMSCULPT NEO can be used on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and calves. A typical treatment plan consists of four to five sessions spaced 5–10 days apart, with maintenance treatments recommended after a full series is completed. Each session lasts 30 minutes and has no significant side effects, which means you can get back to your life immediately after treatment. Patients have said EMSCULPT NEO feels like getting a warm stone massage while experiencing intense muscle contractions.


As mentioned, EMSCULPT NEO treatments are completely non-invasive and have no downtime. After each session, you may feel as if you just completed a strenuous workout. Results from EMSCULPT NEO can be seen as soon as a few weeks after treatment, and full results will be noticeable after about 3 months. To achieve optimal and long-lasting results, a regular exercise program, medically-based skincare, a healthy lifestyle, and nutrition are also encouraged.

EmsculptNEO FAQs


EMSCULPT NEO is the first and only non-invasive body-shaping procedure that uses radiofrequency heating fornfat reduction and high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM®) for muscle strengthening and toning inna 30-minute session. The end result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold-standard product, for less time and less money. Best of all, EMSCULPT NEO has a broad patient appeal as it can treat patients up to BMI 35.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

EMSCULPT NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies. Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm-up activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat. Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts 100% of the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workouts. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. On average the muscle volume increases by 25%.
