What is EMSCULPT Neo?

Dr. William Lao utilizes the latest in non-surgical body contouring to help his NYC patients achieve the abs and buttocks they’ve always dreamed of. EMSCULPT Neo builds and tones your muscles, removing stubborn or bulging fat that diet and exercise haven’t been able to accomplish. EMSculpt Neo is a non-invasive procedure that supports fat burning and muscle building simultaneously, making it an ideal solution for sculpting and contouring your body. The treatment also creates an advantage for our patients who are looking to tone their bodies with no downtime and leaving no recovery scars.

By using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, EMSculpt Neo will induce muscle contractions using a magnetic field that concentrates on tissue, rapidly changing and creating electric currents that run through your stomach or buttocks area. While other neurons and tissues remain unresponsive, your motor neurons will adapt and respond to the electric current. These muscle contractions help remodel your muscle’s structure by creating new muscle fibers and protein strands.

Who are the Best Candidates for EMSCULPT Neo?

EMSculpt Neo is wonderful for both men and women who are struggling with losing the stubborn fat around their stomachs and buttocks. If you are looking to enhance the tone of your abdomen and/or buttocks, this non-invasive procedure is a great way to help you achieve your desired look quickly. Currently, it is FDA approved for men and women with BMI less than 35.

We do want to remind you that this is not a substitute for a healthy diet and active lifestyle, but rather a great addition to achieving your desired firmer look.

  • Gives you a slim, sculpted, and strengthened physique

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting EMSCULPT Neo in NYC is to book a consultation. We have a compassionate front desk team who is excited to speak with you, answer questions, and schedule your appointment.

During your appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with either Dr. William Lao or Dr. Nao Tsuji, who will be able to explain the procedure and give you their recommendations on if EMSCULPT is the best option for you.

What to Expect on the Day of EMSCULPT Neo

An average EMSculpt treatment will last for 30 minutes, during which time the HIFEM is placed on the targeted area (stomach or buttocks). As the procedure continues, the device is altered and moved around to ensure the entire area is receiving the proper treatment.

EMSCULPT Neo Recovery

Following your EMSculpt Neo treatment, you may feel like you just went through an intense workout. You may experience some slight swelling, redness, and soreness around the treated area, but it should subside after a few days.

In order to get the best results, we advise that you attend several procedures over the next 2-4 weeks. We suggest between 4 and 8 consecutive sessions spread out at least one week apart. Dr. Lao will help you create the most ideal schedule during your consultation to ensure optimal results.

Why Choose Dr. Lao?

Dr. William Lao is a double-board certified plastic surgeon specializing in the aesthetic rejuvenation of the breast, body, and face. By choosing a plastic surgeon for your EMSCULPT treatment, you’re selecting a practice that is expertly trained in aesthetics. Dr. Lao is a proud member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

How Much Does EmSculpt Neo Cost in New York City?

The cost of EMCSULPT in NYC will vary depending on the treatment area and how many appointments you need. The most accurate cost will be discussed during your one-on-one consultation.


How many EMSCULPT treatments will I need?

On average, our patients will require 4 EMSULPT treatments for four weeks, receiving four treatments in total. The actual treatment time is about 30 minutes for your abdominal area and around 30 additional minutes for your buttocks. If you are desiring to use EMSCULPT in both areas, you are looking at about 4 hours of total treatment time.

How long until I see results?

While you will begin to feel some results immediately following your treatment, you will notice more positive and visible results between two and four months after your final session. These results will continue to improve over the next few months.

What are the risks?

EMSculpt is an easy, non-invasive procedure so there’s virtually zero risk. It has been scientifically studied for safety and security by 7 independent US-based professional researchers who have noted only positive results.

The only possible danger of receiving EMSculpt is if you are the recipient of metal implants near the therapy site. If you have any kind of these implants, please inform our team so we can assess your situation and professionally make the safest and best options for you.

Does EMSCULPT hurt?

EMSCULPT has been designed to be an overall painless treatment with minimal discomfort. Some patients have expressed feeling a “pulling” sensation during their treatment, but the intensity can easily be adjusted throughout the treatment if there are any concerns. After you are finished, you should expect to have some soreness that may last a few days, but it’s comparable to having a really good workout session, so most patients consider it to be a “good sore”.

Can I use my phone during EMSCULPT?

Absolutely! The EMSCULPT treatment can produce stunning results in just 30 minutes without the need for actual exercise. As you rest and let the machine do all the work, we strongly encourage our patients to bring a book or tablet with them to occupy themselves for the duration of their treatment.

What kind of changes can I expect with EMSCULPT?

Every single patient will have a different response to the EMSCULPT treatment, so you should never use another person’s experience for setting the bar as to what to expect. That being said, during clinical trials, patients have seen an average of 7.5 pounds of fat lost and a small amount (about 16%) of muscle gained. This also can result in an average of  20% reduction in fat and a loss of 1.5 inches in waistline measurement by the time you are finished with your fourth session.

How long will EMSCULPT results last?

In the same way that you lose muscle mass when you stop going to the gym or actively working out, the muscle mass you obtain from your EMSCULPT treatments will also gradually disappear. After you go through the appropriate amount of sessions (usually about four), you can expect to keep your results between six months and a year as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and routine exercise. If you would like to come in for some “maintenance” sessions following your initial treatments, talk to us about special discount packages to help you keep your look.

What’s the difference between EMSCULPT and CoolSculpting?

While both treatments are good ways to tone your body, the results from these two treatments are very different, which makes them difficult to compare. CoolSculpting is used to target stubborn fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise, so it’s better for patients who are looking to reduce their “pinchable” rolls of fat. The focus of EMSCULPT is to build and tone muscle, so this treatment will help patients who are already fairly lean, but looking to have a more toned appearance.
