Now that we’re putting 2021 in the rear-view mirror, we assume you’ve made a few New Year’s Resolutions. You know, the usual stuff: going to the gym five times a week, reading a book a week, deleting your Facebook account, and the like. Good luck with those first two, but that third one has promise.
Why don’t we give you a better resolution from Dr. Jensen? How about you lose a third of the fat and build muscle on your abdomen and thighs?
Then you’d resolve to come into our beautiful Layton offices for Emsculpt Neo.
What is Emsculpt Neo?
Yes, it sounds like a new rendition of The Matrix, but Emsculpt Neo isn’t science fiction; it’s fat reduction and muscle-building reality. You may have heard of Emsculpt, a single treatment that used high frequency electromagnetic energy to create a crazy amount of muscle contractions in 30 minutes to tone areas such as the abdomen and buttocks.
Emsculpt Neo adds a whole new dimension to Emsculpt, radiofrequency energy. The Emsculpt Neo applicator delivers both radiofrequency energy (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) at the same time to the treatment area.
What does this combination do? The RF energy breaks down up to 30 percent of the fat in the area, and the HIFEM energy builds muscle mass by stimulating 20,000 contractions is a 30-minute treatment.
That’s a 2-for-1 boost for body contouring.
How does Emsculpt Neo work?
The Emsculpt Neo applicator simultaneously emits the RF and HIFEM energies. Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly rises by several degrees. This prepares the muscles for exposure to stress, just as a warmup does before you exercise. But this warming goes beyond a warmup. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in the subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, fat cell death. Clinical studies used to gain FDA clearance showed on average a 30 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat in the treatment areas. That’s the RF side of Emsculpt Neo.
At the same time as it delivers the RF energy to heat and destroy fat cells, the Emsculpt Neo applicator also delivers high intensity focused electromagnetic energy. This intense HIFEM energy causes the muscle fibers in the treatment area to contract at intensities that aren’t achievable during a normal workout. It’s like doing 20,000 crunches for your abdomen…in 30 minutes! This extreme stress forces the muscles to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. Clinical studies (again used for FDA clearance) have shown on average a 25 percent growth in muscle volume after an Emsculpt Neo treatment series.
So, Emsculpt Neo melts 30 percent of the fat at the same time it’s building 25 percent more muscle.
Sounds like a good use of 30 minutes, eh? Why not resolve to lose 30 percent of the fat and gain muscle in your abdomen and your thighs for 2022? Call us at Dr. Jensen’s, (385) 424-4567, and set up an Emsculpt Neo session.
