Body Sculpting With The Emsculpt NEO

Treatment uses electromagnetic frequencies to stimulate muscles, eliminate excess fat.

A recent body-sculpting addition at the Joyce Vein & Aesthetic Institute is Emsculpt® NEO, a device that stimulates muscle groups using electromagnetic frequencies as well as radiofrequency energy. It can be used on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, calves, triceps, biceps and other muscle groups.

“Emsculpt NEO is another life-changing treatment offered at Joyce Vein & Aesthetic Institute,” says Douglas H. Joyce, DO, FACOS, FACPh, a board-certified surgeon.

“One of our staff had a very difficult time with weight around his lower abdomen,” the doctor relates. “He worked out with a trainer weekly and tried everything over the years to get rid of it.

“When the Emsculpt NEO arrived, he was our first patient. He underwent five treatments one week apart. Then, we waited eight weeks over the holidays and took pictures. The results speak for themselves.”

Emsculpt NEO is very effective at slimming the abdomen, Dr. Joyce observes.

“The treatment continually contracts the abdominal muscles, so it’s the equivalent of doing 15,000 crunches during a 30-minute treatment,” he reports. “In addition, the radiofrequency energy heats up excess fat and disrupts it, and the body then absorbs the displaced fat over time.

“During an Emsculpt NEO treatment, we place a conduction paddle on the area to be treated and secure it with a strap. Patients simply sit back and watch TV for a half-hour while the equipment does its thing. And the results are amazing.”

Emsculpt NEO treatments are not painful, nor do they result in any residual sensations. The two treatments are noninvasive and require zero recovery time.

“Both utilize a specific series of pulses that remove lactic acid from the targeted muscles, so patients don’t experience the tiredness and soreness associated with intense exercise,” Dr. Joyce explains. “Emsculpt NEO strengthens the core, and when we combine it with the Emsella chair, we get total core-to-floor strengthening.

“These technologies build up the core, and core strength is massively important as we get older. People need core strength for everyday activities, such as getting in and out of a car and for catching themselves if they start to fall.”
