TLC Fit is excited to offer a revolutionary treatment that can build muscle and eliminate stubborn fat without surgery. EMSCULPT NEO® is the first FDA-approved device that simultaneously performs non-invasive lipolysis (fat burning!) and muscle building. This two-in-one non-surgical body contouring procedure is for patients up to a BMI of 35. It combines high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology and radio frequency (RF) waves to sculpt muscles and melt fat in a 30 minute treatment. If you have lost weight, but you are seeking a leaner look, EMSCULPT NEO® can help you achieve a toned tummy, slimmer thighs, or a more defined backside.
Non-Surgical Body Contouring in Houston
At TLC Fit, our team of doctors and weight loss experts are dedicated to helping people in Houston live healthier, more active lives. We know that bariatric procedures such as gastric sleeve are effective for long-term weight loss and can also reduce diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.1 We also realize that many patients enjoy improved health after weight loss, but still strive to meet their aesthetic goals. EMSCULPT NEO® can help when diet and exercise are not enough to give you a lean, toned appearance.
How Does EMSCULPT NEO® Work?
EMSCULPT NEO® uses radiofrequency (RF) and High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HIFEM). RF technology uses heat to induce apoptosis, a process in which fat cells are permanently damaged. Then, by contracting the muscles at a level of intensity that is impossible to achieve during a workout, HIFEM is clinically proven to increase muscle mass.2
This patented process allows for supramaximal contractions of the targeted muscle groups. This increases the catabolic rate in the area of focus, leading to increased lipolysis. The gains in muscle mass will lead to continued results being seen weeks to months after the last treatment.
What to Expect During EMSCULPT NEO®
Preparing for Your Treatment
You can schedule a consultation appointment at our Houston office to learn if EMSCULPT NEO® is right for you and discuss your personalized treatment plan with one of our providers. You may be advised to avoid blood-thinning medications such as ibuprofen before your treatment, as they may increase your chances of post-procedure bruising.
EMSCULPT NEO® is an in-office procedure with no incisions or injections. You will relax as one of our specialists applies the EMSCULPT NEO® device applicator to your targeted area. You may feel muscle contractions, but patients typically find the treatment to be painless. Depending on your needs and goals, multiple 30 minute treatments may be recommended. Optimal treatment plans usually incorporate 4 to 6 treatments over a period of several weeks.
EMSCULPT NEO® Recovery
There is no downtime needed after your treatment. You may feel sore, similar to the way you would feel after an intense workout. Occasionally, patients experience mild bruising at the treatment area.
EMSCULPT NEO® Results
Results will appear in the weeks after treatment as the body gradually builds muscle and sheds fat cells.
