Tampa Bay EmSculpt Neo with Dr. David Halpern

Look Cut Without Getting Cut

There’s a renaissance going on in the world of non-surgical body sculpting, and EmSculpt Neo is leading the way. EmSculpt Neo blends high-intensity electromagnetic and radiofrequency energies to supercharge muscle volume and permanently remove fat cells in minutes. Tampa EmSculpt Neo patients who choose Dr. David Halpern at Tampa Bay Plastic Surgery for their procedures can expect incredible results, compassionate care, and expert guidance from one of Florida’s most respected aesthetic treatment centers.

What is EmSculpt Neo?

Life-changing energy

EmSculpt Neo is an FDA-approved non-surgical body-sculpting treatment that combines two medical breakthroughs: radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energy. When used together, these two powerful energies can cause fat loss of up to 30 percent* and muscle volume gain of up to 25 percent*!

Here’s how EmSculpt Neo works. The radiofrequency energy heats fat cells beneath the skin, damaging fat cells without harming or burning skin or muscle. The body then removes these damaged cells naturally, without the need for surgery. Meanwhile, HIFEM+ (high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology) stimulates thousands of muscle contractions over the length of the session. These contractions happen far faster than the human mind can consciously command them, resulting in an intense workout with long-lasting results after even a single session. As the 2022 president of the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons and past president of the Florida Hand Society, Dr. David Halpern is a leading voice in the field of body contouring. He will meet with you during your Tampa EmSculpt Neo consultation to ensure you get the very best care before, during, and after your treatment.

What are the benefits of EmSculpt Neo?

Defined and Refined

Build muscle. Reduce fat. These are the twin goals of most diets and exercise programs out there, and they are exactly what you get with EmSculpt Neo.

This potent one-two punch can have multiple benefits that go beyond the way you look. In addition to having clothes that fit better and a slimmer, more defined physique, EmSculpt Neo can help you feel stronger and improve your balance. It can also help encourage the overall stability of your movement and improve recovery following injury, and even reduce chronic pain in some cases. Talk to Dr. Halpern about the areas of your body you’d like to feel stronger during your consultation.

Additional Reading

Areas currently approved for treatment are the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, calves, and upper arms. The abdominal program, thighs, and arms employ both fat melting and muscle building, which can be modified to patient comfort with digital controls. The buttocks and calves commonly employ only HIFEM to build muscle bulk but not RF to preserve fat and fullness. In addition, in the abdomen, HIFEM has been shown to tighten the fascial lining of the abdomen and improve diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles esp from childbirth) by an average of 20% in an FDA study. All these measurements of fat loss, muscle gain, and stomach wall tightening were measured by MRI by independent observers.

Your EmSculpt Neo Treatment

Sit Back. Relax. Work Out.

EmSculpt Neo treatments typically take about 30 minutes. During your treatment, you will have the device strapped to the area of your body you want to treat. The experience feels like an intense workout, with a warming sensation to the area that feels like a hot stone massage, and most patients find the experience to be tolerable. Some of our Tampa EmSculpt Neo patients often catch up on social media or read during their treatments! Once treatment is complete, you’re free to go about your day as usual. You’ll feel a little sore, like you would after a hard workout. Hydration is recommended before and after treatments.

Am I a good candidate for EmSculpt Neo?

Non-invasive and safe

Because EmSculpt Neo is non-invasive and uses no chemicals, it is a safe and accessible treatment option for reducing fat and encouraging muscle growth for almost any healthy adult. Whether you want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, improve muscle definition, or just feel and look stronger, EmSculpt Neo is a great solution for you.

Pregnant or nursing patients should wait until after their babies stop nursing to use this procedure. When considering EmSculpt Neo Tampa patients who have metal implants close to the desired treatment areas may not be suitable for the treatment (depending on the location of the implant). Patients with electronic implanted devices (pacemakers, pain pumps, etc.) cannot have HIFEM due to possible interference with these vital devices.

It should be noted that EmSculpt Neo is not a weight-loss treatment. Patients with a BMI of over 35 may need to undergo other therapies first to get their weight under control before using EmSculpt Neo. Dr. Halpern will review your medical history during your consultation to make sure EmSculpt Neo is the right treatment for you.


EmSculpt Neo Recovery

Good to Go

There is no downtime following EmSculpt Neo. The only restriction is that your muscles in the treatment area will be sore, and you will want to avoid doing any further intense workouts to the area for the next 24 hours.

EmSculpt Neo Results

Redefine Your Look

You will start to see muscle growth following your treatment within a few weeks of your first session. As your body removes fat cells, you will see your muscles become more defined and your body tone up over the following weeks. Fat cell loss results are permanent. MRI studies show changes at one month that last for one year after treatment for muscles and fat. Maintaining an active workout schedule and proper diet can go a long way to preserving the effects of your EmSculpt Neo treatments, as can touch-up treatments every three to four months after your initial session. Tampa Bay Plastic Surgery offers a 50% discount for patients who want additional sessions following their initial treatments.

EmSculpt Neo Frequently Asked Questions

EmSculpt Neo feels like you’re going through an intense workout, but only in the area that’s being treated. Most patients find the experience tolerable, and some even enjoy it. Just like an intense workout, you will possibly be sore afterward. Patients can request higher or lower energies applied during their treatments, which we digitally control with our touch screen technology. That way, you get the right level of treatment for your body.

Muscle soreness is the only known side effect of EmSculpt Neo. Because the procedure is non-invasive and uses no chemicals, there is little risk for side effects. EmSculpt Neo is FDA cleared and considered safe.

EmSculpt Neo is a non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency and HIFEM+ to stimulate fat loss and muscle growth. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that uses a cannula to suck out fat from within the body. Liposuction treats fat removal alone, while EmSculpt Neo also improves muscle growth. During your consultation, Dr. Halpern can go through the advantages and limitations of each procedure to help you understand which might be the best option for your treatment goals.

EmSculpt Neo is an elective aesthetic treatment, and insurance will not cover it.
