The best way to understand fat loss is to think about how your body converts food into energy. Every time you eat, your body converts some of that food into fat. That fat is stored in cells throughout your body, ready to be called into action when your activity levels exceed your caloric intake.
You have a layer of fat cells just beneath your skin, spanning most of your body. Each of these cells has the ability to expand and contract to store more or less fat. When you consume more calories than you burn, your fat cells grow larger, and when you burn more calories than you consume, those cells shrink.
The problem lies in the fact that there’s no way to control which fat cells are tapped for energy. That means you can maintain a healthy weight, be physically active, and still have areas of your body where fat simply refuses to budge.
EmSculpt NEO is an innovative body contouring system that combines two powerful technologies to refine the shape of your body. It’s a great option for people who’ve reached and can maintain a healthy weight but want to create better definition in certain areas, but the treatment can be helpful even in those with a body mass index (BMI) of up to 35.
The treatment platform uses electromagnetic technology to prompt your body to create muscle contractions. These contractions work your muscles much the same way as traditional workouts. The type of energy used during treatments is called high-frequency electromagnetic energy, or HIFEM®.
The second technology used in EmSculpt NEO treatments is radiofrequency energy. The treatment platform directs this energy into the deeper layer of your skin, creating controlled heat that damages a portion of targeted fat cells.
Once their structural integrity is compromised, those cells can no longer store fat. They collapse, and the released fat is processed and eliminated from your body. Once destroyed, those cells cannot regenerate, which is how the treatment refines the shape of the treated area.
Once you develop increased muscle mass, those muscles will remain toned for quite some time. You can enhance and sustain your results with weight-bearing exercises or subsequent EmSculpt NEO treatments.
The fat cells destroyed by radiofrequency energy will not come back. That said, it’s important to understand that your remaining fat cells will continue to be able to expand to store new fat. Those cells can grow larger if you gain weight after your treatment, diminishing your results.
