Build muscle and reduce fat
in a fast and effective treatment.

You exercise regularly and count your calories — while your efforts pay off to an extent, you can’t shake off the stubborn pockets of fat that prevent your muscles from truly popping. Or perhaps you simply don’t have the time or ability to work out regularly, and you loathe having to count your calories. Sound familiar?

Well, EMSCULPT NEO is the only non-invasive and non-surgical technology capable of reducing fat and building muscles in all your major muscle groups, including the abdomen, glutes, calves, biceps, and triceps.

EMSCULPT NEO delivers rapidly changing magnetic fields that induce electrical currents deep within the muscle tissues, leading to rapid muscle contractions. It targets selective motor neurons, the cells that transmit signals through the nerves. Consequently, the procedure strengthens the abdomen, buttocks, calves, and arms in a series of EMSCULPT NEO sessions.

Furthermore, EMSCULPT NEO also delivers radiofrequency energy to raise the overall temperature of the muscles by several degrees. The heightened heat energy prepares the muscles for the electromagnetic muscle contractions and seeps into the subcutaneous fat tissues, causing apoptosis. Once the fat cells are permanently damaged, they’re eventually expelled from your body.

The Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery is the first medical center in Grand Rapids to get this new device.

EMSCULPT NEO addresses all major muscle groups in the body.

  • Abdominals (tummy)
  • Gluteals (buttocks)
  • Calves (posterior of the lower leg)
  • Biceps (front of the upper arm)
  • Triceps (back of the upper arm)

Results you can see and feel with EMSCULPT NEO.

Imagine doing 20,000 crunches or squats at the gym. You can’t because there’s no way to do that in a single session—you’d need to hit the gym regularly and do over a hundred crunches to reach that number in a few months.

However, the EMSCULPT NEO provides those benefits in each 30-minute session. The device delivers a series of high-energy electromagnetic pulses to trigger thousands of muscle contractions every minute while you simply lie down and relax. You can use this procedure to achieve firm buttocks and tighter abs by strengthening the underlying muscles.

EMSCULPT NEO can also be used to enhance the results of other surgical and non-surgical procedures, such as tummy tuck, CoolSculpting, Vanquish ME, Exilis Ultra, and Cellutone. These procedures reduce fat and tighten skin tissues. However, combining them with EMSCULPT NEO also strengthens your muscles, making you look chiseled.

According to clinical research, EMSCULPT NEO produces the following results:

  • 30 percent reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
  • 25 percent increase in muscle mass
  • Average waist reduction of 4.4 cm (1.7 inches)

Dr. Ringler is excited to be the first and only physician in West Michigan offering EMSCULPT NEO to his patients.

Am I a candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?

Men and women of all ages who wish for a non-surgical alternative for building muscle and burning fat in the abdomen, glutes, calves, biceps, or triceps are good candidates for EMSCULPT NEO.

However, EMSCULPT NEO is only suitable for patients with a BMI of up to 35 because it’s a body contouring procedure (not a weight loss procedure). Patients with a BMI over 35 should opt for the procedure after they’re closer to their desired body weight or after undergoing a weight loss treatment. Furthermore, this procedure might not be suitable for patients with pacemakers.

Benefits of EMSCULPT NEO

  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Concludes within 30 minutes
  • Causes no pain or discomfort
  • Natural results similar to actual workouts
  • An approximately 25% muscle mass increase
  • An approximately 30% fat reduction

What happens during an EMSCULPT NEO treatment?

EMSCULPT NEO is an in-office procedure performed at the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery by one of our estheticians, physician assistants, or registered nurse practitioners.

EMSCULPT NEO uses two panels to deliver RF and HIFEM+ (high intensity focused electromagnetic field) energy. This energy penetrates through your skin to affect the fat cells and muscle fibers. The electromagnetic energy induces approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per session, and the radiofrequency energy kills the fat cells. Such results are impossible with voluntary muscle actions.

The entire session lasts for 30 minutes, following which you can leave and resume your daily activities. EMSCULPT NEO is the only technology that destroys fat cells and builds muscles without damaging the surrounding tissue.

How many EMSCULPT NEO treatments are required to see results?

You will begin to feel the results of your EMSCULPT NEO treatment immediately. EMSCULPT NEO begins to produce lasting results within two to four weeks after the treatment sessions. A series of four treatments (two per week for two weeks in a row) produces optimal results. The results continue to be evident for about one year after the treatment.

Many patients opt to have one or two additional treatments during the year to maximize the lifting and sculpting effect of the treatment. One of the best things about this clinically-tested procedure is the consistency in its results. Patients can expect to increase muscle tone, build muscle, and burn a noticeable amount of fat in the targeted body areas. Patients often report that they felt stronger and more toned when they returned to their normal exercise routines.

Patient Testimonial

Is the EMSCULPT NEO procedure comfortable?

EMSCULPT NEO produces muscle contractions that can be powerful, but most patients do not find them uncomfortable. After about 30 minutes, most patients wish they could continue the session. There is no downtime or complications, allowing you to resume your daily activities uninterrupted. However, you might experience post-treatment muscle soreness, similar to what you experience after a vigorous workout.

Should I try EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is a complete game-changer in the body sculpting field.

Previously, no treatment provided the combined benefits of fat reduction, muscle strengthening, and skin tightening. The body consists of 35 percent muscles, 25 percent fat, and 16 percent skin—you need to address each component to achieve a truly enhanced and contoured appearance.

Until recently, the only way to address your muscle, fat, and skin simultaneously was through a surgical abdominoplasty. Non-surgical treatment, like CoolSculpting, focused only on fat reduction. EMSCULPT NEO is the first non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to provide dramatic contouring without surgeries, incisions, or scars.

If you want to achieve a more contoured and chiseled body, you should definitely try EMSCULPT NEO.

Alternative to a Brazilian butt lift: EMSCULPT NEO

Many patients today seek a non-surgical alternative to the Brazilian Butt Lift, a lengthy and somewhat complex surgical procedure. EMSCULPT NEO provides a safe and natural alternative to a BBL that was not previously possible without surgery.
