A Comprehensive Comparison | by The Brow Room
There are a lot of body sculpting machines on the market these days. How do you know which one is right for you? In this blog post, we will compare the Emsculpt NEO to other popular contouring machines such as CoolSculpting and BBL (Ultherapy body contouring). We will look at the benefits and drawbacks of each machine so that you can make an informed decision about which one is right for you.
Emsculpt NEO (Ranking #1 in our books)
The Emsculpt NEO is a new body sculpting machine that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to target and tone the muscles. It is FDA cleared for use on the abdomen and buttocks.
The Emsculpt NEO is different from other body sculpting machines because it can target multiple areas at once. It also has a shorter treatment time than other machines, making it more convenient for busy people. The Emsculpt NEO treatment consists of four 30-minute sessions spaced out over two weeks.
EMSCULPT NEO builds on the success of its forerunner, EMSCULPT, by simultaneously radiating both radio frequency and high-intensity magnetic fields. The end result is greater fat reduction and muscle development than any single gold standard product for less time and money. Furthermore, because it may be used on patients with a BMI of up to 35, it has broad appeal!
How Does EMSCULPT NEO Work?
EMSCULPT NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies.
The temperature of the muscle increases rapidly as a result of radio-frequency heating. This prepares muscles for stress exposure, similar to what a warm-up activity does before any workout. The temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, or cell death, within 4 minutes on average. Clinical trials have found that patients experienced a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat after 12 weeks.*
HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibers in the region at intensities that are not possible during voluntary exercise by breaching the brain’s limitations. Extreme stress encourages muscles to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and size of muscle fibers and cells. On average, a 25% increase in muscular volume was observed in clinical trials.
Needless to say, we LOVE EMSCULPT NEO!
CoolSculpting (Ranking #2)
CoolSculpting is a body sculpting machine that uses cryolipolysis to target and freeze fat cells. It is FDA cleared for use on the abdomen, thighs, arms, and chin. The CoolSculpting treatment consists two or more treatments that last between 35-75 minutes and even up to 1-3 hours.
During your CoolSculpting session, a gel pad and applicator will be placed on the treatment area. The applicator will deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells. You may feel some pressure and suction as the applicator is applied to your skin.
The treated fat cells are frozen and then die. Over time, your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells.
CoolSculpting is a popular body sculpting machine because it is non-invasive and has minimal side effects. However, it can be expensive and the results may take several months to appear.
BBL (Ultherapy body contouring) (Ranking #)
BBL is a body sculpting machine that uses ultrasound energy to target and tone the muscles. It is FDA cleared for use on the abdomen and buttocks. The BBL treatment takes a bit longer and is more focused on the buttox than other areas of the body. It is important to note that BBL is not a weight loss treatment, but rather a body contouring treatment. BL body contouring treatments use ultrasound energy to heat and contract the muscle fibers. This results in an increase in the number and size of muscle cells. The treatment also stimulates the production of new collagen, which gives the skin a firmer, lifted appearance.
