Dr Geetika Mitaal Gupta’s ISAAC Luxe is known for its range of cosmetic treatments. From facials to laser hair removal and treatments, to help get closer to your physical body goals. One such treatment offered is the Emsculpt which is used to tone and sculpt your body, especially arms, legs, calves and the abdominal area. The idea behind the treatment is to build weaker muscles and promote muscle strength while aiding fat reduction, along with helping in post-partum wellness. It also helps you get closer to your physical body goals.
This year ISAAC Luxe has introduced an updated version of the Emsculpt (launched in 2018), the Emsculpt NEO. It is a non-invasive body-contouring treatment that deeply and intensely stimulates the muscles and targets immune-to-exercise body parts. It works on body parts such as buttocks, thighs, arms, legs, and more, helping you achieve fitness goals that otherwise remain out of reach. The new version in comparison has 47% more excess fat reduction, 56% more muscle-building, provides 35% lesser abdominal separation, and provides 47.5% lesser waist separation.
How does it work?
Using high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) and radiofrequency (RF)1, Emsculpt Neo can simultaneously eliminate excess fat and build muscles. It is FDA-cleared and works by quickly heating muscles at a high temperature using RF technology, preparing the muscle for stress. Simultaneously, the HIFEM makes muscles contract approximately 20,000 times in the entire 30 mins session, building 25% more muscle on average, and reducing fat by 30% on average.
The methodology behind it is to simulate a warm-up before a workout, only at a more intense rate (just three treatments are comparable with 2 to 16 weeks of intense exercise.) After four minutes, the temperature in the fat cells reaches levels that cause apoptosis, or a state where fat cells are permanently removed from the body.
Luxebook caught up with Dr Geetika to know more about the updated Emsculpt NEO.
Tell us about the updates on Emsculpt Neo?
Emsculpt NEO is a new generation machine, which uses two technologies — high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) and radiofrequency (RF). The radio frequency melts the fat, whereas the high intensity gives a supra maximal contraction to build up the muscle.
Who can opt for the treatment? Is it only for weight loss?
It is for anyone who wants to take their fitness journey more seriously — be it for health benefits, tightening the core, postural correction or just wanting more results from their workout. It can be fitted to anyone’s lifestyle because it will just give you a better version of wherever you are.
The treatment is not just a body-wellness or body contouring treatment but also helps you improve your posture. It is also a great tool for people who are on the heavier side, and have a high BMI, and women who are going through post-partum. The machine helps to strengthen the weak core muscles post-child birth. It is even good for people who wish to work on certain areas like weak calves. Be it a sedentary lifestyle, a person who is working out or a person with a high BMI, anyone and everyone can use this machine.
How many sessions are required and what is the frequency of the sessions?
You need one session a week for 4 weeks, and once you start seeing the results you can switch to a maintenance basis about once a month. About 4 weeks after the treatment you can see an increase in muscle mass until 28-30% and a decrease in the fat percentage to about 25-30%.
Are there any side effects?
There is no downtime and no side effects of the Emsculpt NEO. Just have plenty of fluids after the treatment and you can continue your daily activities, including working out.
My first-hand experience
This was my first time ever trying something of this sort. Initially, I entered without knowing what to expect. I opted for the Emsculpt NEO on my abdominal area, because who wouldn’t want to get rid of stubborn fat for that enviable ab line!
