Emsculpt is an FDA-cleared body-sculpting procedure that builds muscle and burns fat. It delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) pulses to the muscle tissue, creating supramaximal muscle contractions that activate more muscle fibers than what you can achieve through normal exercise. 

This nonsurgical treatment can tighten, tone, and strengthen the large muscle groups of the abdomen and buttocks as well as of smaller body areas, including the upper arms, thighs, and calves. The result is increased muscle definition and reduced circumference.

Emsculpt Neo, launched in fall 2020, is a next-generation, FDA-cleared device that combines enhanced HIFEM technology (delivering up to 20% more electromagnetic pulses than the original) with radiofrequency (RF) energy in the form of heat, to burn fat more effectively. 

Emsculpt Neo can treat all the same areas as the original Emsculpt device, though treatment of the butt, arms, and calves is typically done without heat, to avoid the volume loss that would come with fat reduction.

Four sessions, typically spaced two to five days apart, are recommended over a two-week period, with either the classic Emsculpt or Emsculpt Neo device.

I honestly had avoided doing anything along the lines of cool sculpting, fat burning technology that has been offered me via social media promotion. I felt like 1. It made me a fraud & 2. I had heard from friends that these sculpting machines were overpriced and ineffective. 
But the more I saw the emsculpt before & afters, the more curious that I got. My stomach area has always been my problem area. Even at my leanest, I would hold body fat in my “love handles”. 

When ADARA Body Sculpting & Anti Aging Center reached out to me to collaborate on the Emsculpt Neo, I was instantly attracted to the professional, clean look of the office. From my experience with laser facials in the past, I know how important it is to find a place that you can trust. The quality of your results depend on the state of the art technology, trusted and licensed estheticians, and professionals that you can trust with your procedures. ADARA Body Sculpting & Anti Aging center in Wall Township, NJ was definitely somewhere that I felt I could trust.

I decided to give the emsculpt neo a try after hearing that JLO uses it regularly. (Who doesn’t want to look like JLO?) I agreed to collaborate with Adara under the conditions that I would be providing 100% honest feedback with my followers. This also allowed me to be transparent with what I do. 

So, I chose to do emsculpt neo on my stomach, and the first session was intimidating. I was worried that it would be painful, but it was very tolerable. Way less painful than laser hair removal (if that helps!). It’s slight discomfort but mostly just the weird feeling of having your abdominal muscles contract against your will. They started it off on a lower setting and gradually climbed to the max power setting. Even at the highest setting I found it to be incredibly tolerable. 

It was bizarre that after the session was over, I was sweating as if I had done a workout. My abs were also noticeably more pronounced. My second session was the same as the first. 
I was slightly disappointed after my second session when I would have a big meal and my stomach would bloat as usual. (I was hoping for magic LOL!)

However, the third session is where I felt like that magic really happened. They began the session this time at the highest setting so the entire time it was at max effort. I’m not sure if it was because of this or because it was my third session but after that session I noticed a profound difference in my stomach. It looked as if not only my abs were more pronounced, my belly button looked very lean, and it looked like my stomach was cut in on the sides as well. 

The fourth session only made it even better (again starting from the highest setting in the first minute)! 
My conclusion is that the emsculpt neo is totally worth it. If I were to do it again I would definitely start at the max setting from the first minute for the first two sessions. I almost wish that I had two more sessions to do at full effort to see how insane my stomach could look. I also feel like I’m instantly stronger at ab workouts that I used to struggle with. 

Final Results (four sessions!)

It DEFINITELY feels like cheating, and I don’t know if I’d ever work out if I had this machine at my disposal every day. I am so curious what I would look like if I did two more sessions on my stomach. I feel like the results would be absolutely insane! I also am so curious what this machine could do to an area like the back of my arms because that area does not fluctuate as much with food. The Emsculpt Neo gave me a leaping advantage in my training and body progress that would have taken me years to get to! 

If you are considering any kind of body contouring device- skip the coolsculpting and go straight for emsculpt neo. Not only will you lose body fat but you will see noticeable lean muscle increase! It’s magic and worth every penny. Also, where you go matters (as with any laser technology). Adara Body Sculpting & Anti Aging Center has the most up to date equipment and state of the art facility with friendly technicians.
