With noninvasive body contouring treatments gaining popularity, you now have a range of choices to target stubborn fat or improve muscle tone. EMSCULPT NEO sets a new standard—using advanced technology to deliver both results simultaneously. This groundbreaking treatment produces impressive results for our patients in Scottsdale, Chandler, and Mesa, AZ.

If you are at a stable weight with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or lower, we can use EMSCULPT NEO to sculpt and define your physique. Call Advanced Plastic Surgery Institute at (480) 466-7355 or request a consultation using our online form.


EMSCULPT NEO combines 2 types of energy: radiofrequency heating (RF) energy and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to burn fat and build muscle. The treatment’s RF energy targets fat cells, while electromagnetic pulses induce intense muscle contractions, leading to muscle growth. As the treated fat cells gradually die, your body naturally flushes them from your system over the following weeks.

Numerous clinical studies have shown remarkable results. On average, patients experience a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and a 25% increase in muscle thickness, leading to impressive body-shaping outcomes.

What Areas Does EMSCULPT NEO Treat?

EMSCULPT NEO can contour and improve muscle tone in these areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Lateral abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Inner thighs
  • Saddlebags
  • Front thighs
  • Back thighs
  • Biceps
  • Triceps
  • Calves

This versatile, time-efficient treatment uses a large applicator to address areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. A small applicator targets the arms and calves, and the specialized “edge” applicator addresses the sides of the abdomen and the oblique muscles.

Pros and Cons of EMSCULPT NEO

As with any body contouring treatment, it’s important to weigh the benefits and drawbacks before deciding on a treatment path.


  • Noninvasive treatment for fat reduction and muscle building
  • Combined benefits of reducing fat and increasing muscle mass in one session
  • High patient satisfaction and positive clinical results
  • Applicators tailored to specific body areas for quick treatment and optimal results


  • Some patients may experience mild discomfort during the intense muscle contractions
  • Mild muscle soreness after treatment is common, like after an intense workout
  • Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve desired results

Who Is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is an ideal choice for people who desire both fat reduction and muscle toning, particularly in areas that are difficult to address with diet and exercise alone. If you want to achieve a leaner, more defined physique without surgery, this treatment may be an excellent fit for you. However, if your goal is simply to reduce excess fat, we may recommend nonsurgical CoolSculpting® instead.

What To Expect

What Is a Treatment Session Like?

You will feel intense muscle contractions and a heating sensation similar to a hot stone massage in the treated area. Each session takes about 30 minutes. A series of 4 sessions scheduled 5 to 10 days apart produces the desired result for most patients.


The noninvasive nature of the treatment means no downtime, allowing you to resume your regular activities immediately after each session.


Some patients notice visible results soon after treatment. However, optimal results are typically seen about 90 days after the final session, with continued improvement in the following weeks.
