I try: the truly transformative Emsculpt NEO at Clinic Skin A to Z

Everyone has a body part that they tend to be a little frustrated with, and for me, that area has always been my belly. Despite exercising six days a week it’s an area that I’ve never been that happy with but just learned to live with, vibing body positivity and all that! But if I could work on it even harder I most definitely would, and being fully aware that “abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym” I’ve been tweaking my daily habits to address that when I can.
However, when I got an email about a brand-new body-contouring treatment called Emsculpt NEO that promised to not only burn fat but also to build muscle in the abdominal area, I was immediately intrigued. I set up an appointment at the newly opened Clinic Skin A to Z at the One Health precinct in Remuera for a consultation, and before you know it I was being strapped in ready to go.
The team, headed by Dr Shareen Jacob, are experts in their field, and the lovely Tracey Bull, who I met with once a week for four weeks for my Emsculpt NEO course, was a wealth of knowledge when I can to all things aesthetics. She also talked me through the entire process and the science behind Emsculpt NEO, while I simply lay on the bed and let the tech do its work.
Helping you “work out smarter, not harder”, and with significant results, Emsculpt NEO builds off its predecessor, Emsculpt's legacy. With its revolutionary body shaping and contouring action, Emsculpt NEO is essentially a non-invasive body shaping procedure that combines two energies, emitting radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies for simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building. The Synchronized RF it uses is the only patented radiofrequency heating in the world that works simultaneously within a magnetic field. Combine that with HIFEM+, the aesthetic world’s number one muscle sculpting technology that operates simultaneously with the RF heating, and you have a powerhouse machine that comes with a raft of benefits for the end-user – whatever area it goes to work on. Typically, two standalone procedures are needed to treat both fat and muscle, but Emsculpt NEO simultaneously melts fat while building muscles. It is a faster, more economical and more efficacious solution than combining multiple procedures, and with a course of around four weekly sessions required, it’s also an easy protocol to commit to.
The Emsculpt NEO technology is able to affect the muscle in a way that you couldn’t do voluntarily, which is what really drew me in. When you do a crunch or a squat, you’re activating about 50 percent of that muscle group every three to five seconds. A session with Emsculpt NEO is activating 100 percent of the muscle 20,000 times in a 30-minute period. Not only will you see a great improvement in muscle tone, but you may find working out easier—better, stronger, longer—which can help you reach your fitness goals even faster.
When it comes to safety, Emsculpt NEO has been clinically tested for both safety and efficacy in seven clinical studies and 30 scientific publications. It can can be applied over the abdomen, buttocks, arms, calves and flanks (love handles), and the awards are winging in. Emsculpt NEO has won the Instyle Magazine 2021 Awards for Best Beauty Buys - Best Body Sculpting Treatment, the Shape Magazine 2021 Winner Skin Awards for Best In-Office Body Contouring Treatment, the New Beauty 2021 Award for Best Muscle Toner and Fat Reducer and Big See 2021 Product Award.

How does it feel?

The actual Emsculpt process is seriously painless – but takes a little getting used to. The device straps on over your stomach area (or butt, arms etc), and then the practitioner turns up the power. They start at a lower power level and then work their way up to the muscles aren’t hyper-stressed, and so the feeling becomes more natural over time.
Contractions occur a few seconds apart and feel strange—like super-intense vibrations that reach your very core. This experience felt slightly uncomfortable during my first treatment but soon got better, and by my last session I was hitting around 92 percent power with ease. After a few contractions, the machine will switch over to a tapping motion to help break up the lactic acid that’s being released by your muscles. It’s important to drink a lot more water than usual before and after each session to truly flush things out, but otherwise you can go about your day normally.
I followed all the rules and was pleasantly surprised to see definition start to appear, and a few weeks down the track I could almost be tempted to rock a crop. My jeans are feeling looser and my belt a few holes tighter, and I seriously could not be happier with the results!

It’s important to remember that Emsculpt NEO can certainly emphasise definition all on its own, but that the best results will come from a combination of treatments, a healthy diet, and a consistent exercise regime. I’m looking forward to making what I have achieved last, as getting stronger and stronger as I age is a major goal.
If that’s on your to-do list as well, I couldn’t recommend Emsculpt NEO more!
