Emsculpt Neo for Muscle after Weight Loss

Should I Consider EMSCULPT NEO® After Weight Loss With Semaglutide?

Weight loss with semaglutide has become more popular than ever, as it turns a failed attempt at weight loss into a potentially successful one. Those who cannot lose weight the traditional way might find their efforts more rewarding if they take on a medical route. That said, semaglutide does not always take the weight off where you want it, which is why you often need other interventions to achieve the look you desire. 

This brings us to body-sculpting treatments, a popular option being EMSCULPT NEO®. What exactly is this procedure, and why should you get it once you are done with semaglutide? This blog will go through the basics and help you make a decision.

What Are Semaglutide Treatments?

Semaglutide is an injectable medication that mimics the GLP-1 hormone, which generally appears in your system after you eat. 

Originally, this medicine was used in treating type 2 diabetes because it stimulates insulin and suppresses glucagon when your blood sugar is too high. 

When it comes to weight loss, this treatment tells your body that you are no longer hungry. The injection also slows your stomach's emptying process, which reduces your appetite and cravings. Since you'll be eating less, it becomes much easier to lose weight.

How Is EMSCULPT NEO® Different?

While semaglutide is an internal treatment that reduces calorie intake, EMSCULPT NEO® is an external one that destroys the fat cells. 

Combining radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM™) energy, EMSCULPT NEO® helps sculpt and tone the body. 

The way it works is simple. The RF technology warms the fat underneath the skin, destroying it so your body can expel it naturally. On the other hand, HIFEM™ stimulates muscle contraction, causing the fibers to become stronger and denser. The effect is similar to what happens during exercise but without physical effort.

Benefits of EMSCULPT NEO® After Semaglutide 

Here are some benefits you can enjoy by following up a semaglutide treatment with EMSCULPT NEO®:

  • It Reduces Stubborn Fat

Semaglutide treatments are an excellent option for treating obesity, as they reduce your appetite enough that you eventually lose weight. The problem is that while the fat goes away, you can't control the areas it targets. The number on the scale might have reached your goal, but the stubborn pockets of fat on your stomach or love handles beg to differ.

EMSCULPT NEO® is a spot treatment, so you can choose where to use it. Once the applicators are placed over the target area, they deliver RF and HIFES™ technology into the fat cells. You'll notice those stubborn fat patches going down within a few months. 

  • It Tightens the Skin

Weight can be burned out of your body relatively fast, but your skin often takes longer to keep up with it. This is especially true when you have passed your 30s, and your body no longer produces as much elastin or collagen. The skin might end up looking loose and saggy, compromising your results. 

RF technology has the potential to trigger elastin and collagen production, the warmth triggering your body's healing response. Over time, the skin should tighten and offer you a better-put-together physique. Thanks to the applicators, EMSCULPT NEO® can be used on every section of your body.

  • It Strengthens Your Muscles

Semaglutide helps reduce fat, but it does nothing for your muscles. Once you reach the end of your journey, you'll look skinnier, but chances are you will also look frail. This is where EMSCULPT NEO® steps in.

EMSCULPT NEO® triggers your muscles into their "workout mode," inducing an average of 20,000 contractions within 30 minutes. 

This is often more than what you'd experience in a workout session. Your muscles become stronger, and your body looks toned as a result.
