Emsculpt Neo Technique
Once you have been determined to be a good candidate for Emsculpt Neo you will schedule and be seen for the treatment. During the treatment you will lay downand the applicators will be applied to the specific body parts being treated. Each treatment takes 30 minutes and is customizable to each patient’s level of comfort. During the treatment itself you may feel an intense yet tolerable muscle contraction similar to when exercising. Along with the muscle contractions there will also be a warm sensation comparable to a hot stone massage, this is the radiofrequency working to heat and destroy unwanted fat. After the treatment there is no down time and you’re able to immediately get back to your daily routine. Over the following hours to days you may feel some tightness and soreness in the areas treated as the muscles recover after the treatment.

Emsculpt Neo Improvements
Patients who are good candidates for Emsculpt Neo are of a normal BMI and already have a healthy and active lifestyle. This procedure can be used to treat the following muscle groups and can be used to target fat loss, muscle growth or both simultaneously:
Preparing for Emsculpt Neo
There are no special preparations which are required for treatment. It’s always a good idea to drink plenty of water and consume a high protein diet around the time of treatment to maximize results.
Recovery from Emsculpt Neo
There really isn’t any recovery or downtime after the treatment. Some mild muscle soreness is normal and will gradually improve over the days following treatment.
San Francisco Emsculpt Neo Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments do I need?
We recommend that all patients receive 4 treatments spaced apart by 5-10 days. This will provide maximal fat loss and muscle growth. For additional benefits we recommend that this series of treatment is repeated every 6-12 months. Emsculpt Neo does not replace a healthy diet and exercise program.
How much fat loss and muscle growth can I expect after a series of treatments?
Clinical studies demonstrate that on average patients see a 30% reduction in fat as well as a 25% increase in muscle mass. They even found that Emsculpt Neo is also able to help close diastasis recti from pregnancy by about 20%!
Is there anyone who cannot have Emsculpt Neo?
Yes, anyone who has implantable metal devices such as joints, pacemakers, etc should not undergo treatment. This is because the radiofrequency can cause the metal to heat up internally leading to possible injury. If you do have any metal inside, including IUDs please let Dr. Sieber’s office know.
If I’m already thin and have a low BMI will Emsculpt Neo still work for me?
Absolutely! Even in low BMI patients, you are still able to see a 25% increase in muscle mass after completion of a series of 4 treatments. Radiofrequency can always be added for additional fat reduction if necessary.
What if I want to increase the size of my butt but don’t want to lose any fat?
Emsculpt Neo treatments are totally customizable for each treatment area. In areas such as the buttocks, the HIFEM can be active while the radiofrequency is turned off. This way you’ll get all the muscle building benefits with none of the fat loss!
I already had liposuction, will Emsculpt Neo still work on me?
It sure will! Because liposuction is a fat reduction procedure, it does not do anything to the muscles underneath. Hi definition lipo and traditional liposuction patients are still great candidates for Emsculpt Neo as the treatments can both build muscle and add additional fat reduction if necessary.
I already had a Brazilian Butt Lift and want more projection in my butt, will this help?
Most of the buttocks projection is actually from the muscle underneath so if you had a BBL and don’t have a lot of projection it could be because the muscle underneath is underdeveloped (you’re not doing enough squats!). Emsculpt Neo is able to help build up the gluteal muscles without causing any loss to precious fat which was transferred there.
How do I know if I’m a better candidate for liposuction or Emculpt Neo?
Based on your goals and your conversation with Dr. Sieber, he will be able to tell you which treatment option is best suited for you. Liposuction is strictly a fat reduction procedure. The benefit of liposuction is that multiple areas are able to be treated in a single surgery and the 80-100% of fat can be removed from each area at once (this is assuming that you’re of a normal BMI and have less than 5 liters of total fat to be removed). Emsculpt Neo does not remove as much fat as liposuction but is able to simultaneously build muscle. Emsculpt neo is also an in-office procedure without any downtime! Both treatments have their pros and cons.
I heard that your fat can grow with fat freezing treatments, does this happen with Emsculpt Neo as well?
No, it doesn’t. There is something called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) which can occur after fat freezing treatments. When this occurs, the fat grows disproportionately instead of being destroyed like it’s supposed to. There have never been any reports of abnormal fat growth after Emsculpt Neo treatments.
