Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a treatment that refines the body’s contours by destroying fat cells, triggering muscle development, or both. The team at Apollo Physicians relies on Emsculpt neo®, a platform that eliminates unwanted fat and promotes muscle growth.

The process is noninvasive and requires no advance preparation or anesthesia. The treatment device emits radiofrequency energy and high-intensity electromagnetic pulses.

The radiofrequency energy creates heat in the deeper layers of skin, damaging a portion of targeted fat cells and causing them to release stored fat, which is processed by your lymphatic system and eliminated from your body.

The high-intensity electromagnetic pulses stimulate targeted muscle fibers. Your body reacts by building new muscle, just like it would after intense workouts. Emsculpt neo from BTL Industries Inc. creates these effects with no effort on your part and at an intensity not possible with traditional workouts.

How long does it take to see the results of body sculpting?

After each session, the targeted fat cells will collapse, allowing stored fat to drain away. Your lymphatic system collects that drained fat and the damaged cells and processes them like any other cellular debris.

Muscle growth is a gradual process. Your body creates new muscle tissue that accumulates over time, eventually creating a more refined, sculpted appearance in the treatment area.

It’ll be several weeks before you begin to see the results of your treatment and several months to see their full effect. Most people benefit from several treatments spread out over time.

Are body sculpting results permanent?

While the fat cells destroyed during Emsculpt neo sessions are gone forever, the remaining fat cells will continue functioning normally. That means if you consume more calories than you burn, a portion of that food will convert into fat.

Fat cells expand and contract to hold more or less fat as needed. This means you can damage your body sculpting results if you gain significant weight after treatment. Emsculpt neo is best suited for adults who have reached and will maintain a healthy, stable weight.
