Getting a well-sculpted body can be difficult, no matter how often you exercise or how healthy you eat. Despite your best efforts, stubborn fat is there to stay, preventing you from reaching your aesthetic goals. EMSCULPT NEO® is a breakthrough treatment that allows you to reduce excess fat and build muscle in the process. Dr. Ariel Ostad, MD offers EMSCULPT NEO® services in NYC to women and men who want to sculpt their bodies and obtain a toned look.



The best candidates for EMSCULPT NEO® are those who are close to their goal weight and have a BMI of thirty or less. You may be on a weight loss journey, but you should be no more than 15 to 30 pounds away from your goal. The closer you are to your ideal weight, the more definition you can see after the EMSCULPT NEO® treatment. If you are more than 30 pounds away from your target weight, then you may benefit more from other procedures for body contouring.

Candidates should also commit to a proactive lifestyle with exercise and a healthy diet. While EMSCULPT NEO® destroys fat cells, you can gain new fat cells if you live an unhealthy lifestyle. Patients should look at EMSCULPT NEO® as an aid in their body-sculpting journey, not as a weight loss treatment.

Pregnant women may not be suitable candidates for the EMSCULPT NEO® treatment. Before getting the treatment, they should wait for at least six weeks if they gave birth naturally or three months if they had a C-section. A consultation with Dr. Ostad is recommended to determine when you may be eligible for EMSCULPT NEO®.


EMSCULPT NEO® is the only cosmetic treatment that uses both radiofrequency and HIFEM+ energy to sculpt your body. The non-invasive treatment can reduce fat and tone your muscles for a fit look. The treatment also offers a skin-tightening effect along with reducing the appearance of cellulite. 

The radiofrequency delivered by the treatment will rapidly heat your fat cells, damaging their structure and causing them to be naturally eliminated by your lymphatic system. It selectively heats subcutaneous fat, making it a good choice for patients who have stubborn fat areas on the stomach, back, arms, or more. Clinical studies have shown a 30% permanent reduction in fat loss. 

HIFEM+ technology takes a different route by targeting the muscles. Using alternating magnetic fields, the treatment can stimulate your muscles repeatedly, causing them to contract. The effect is similar to the one you get by going to the gym when your muscles become much stronger. These contractions can trigger the natural healing response of your skin and muscles, promoting collagen production and improving your muscle mass. Clinical studies have shown a 25% increase in muscle mass.

10 Body Areas EMSCUPLT NEO Can Treat


Since EMSCULPT NEO® is a non-invasive treatment, the recovery is minimal, with little potential for downtime. Most patients can resume their daily activities right after getting the treatment. Since the session only lasts for about 30 minutes, many patients opt for it as a lunchtime treatment.

Some patients may experience side effects with this treatment. Redness, swelling, and potential bruising are common when it comes to both radiofrequency and HIFEM+ technology. This is a natural response to your healing system kicking in, the effects usually lasting no more than a few days. You may apply cold compresses or ice to alleviate potential discomfort.

Muscle soreness is also common after the HIFEM+ treatment, a feeling similar to the one you get after an intense workout. This is once more a natural side effect, as EMSCULPT NEO® induces muscle contraction the same way a workout does to build your muscle. This soreness should not last more than a few days and can be alleviated by gentle stretching or over-the-counter painkillers.


EMSCULPT NEO® works best as a multi-step treatment, with patients going through one treatment session per week for at least a month. The number of treatments is decided by your goals and the amount of fat you are planning to eliminate. On average, patients can see a 30 percent reduction of their unwanted fat and a 25 percent muscle growth.

Effects are gradual with EMSCULPT NEO®. Most patients notice the first results within 45 days after the treatment. However, it takes time for all the damaged fat to be eliminated, for your muscles to grow, and for your collagen levels to improve. For this reason, it may take three months or more for you to enjoy the final results.

To maintain these effects, we recommend that you follow a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and a good diet. Maintenance treatments are also recommended to reduce the unwanted fat that may accumulate afterward.
