Five reasons not to get Emsculpt NEO

All this new technology, it’s a marketing gimic. Nothing can replace hard work and sweat! Right? Well here are our “FIVE Reasons not to get EMSCULPT NEO”

1: Anyone can do 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes

Emsculpt uses technology called HIFEM –  High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy.  It harnesses this energy into shaped paddles, which when placed precisely on the body for roughly 30 minutes, causes something called, “supramaximal contractions. They claim that these contractions work by bypassing the brain’s limitations, as the HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibres at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workout. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells., equivalent to 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes.

Pfft anyone can do that in their living room….Right?!

2: I live for HIIT

Emsculpt claims that 4 x 30 minute Emsculpt sessions are equivalent to 12-16 weeks of HIIT training…. in 2 hours. Ha! They clearly have not seen me go for it in my living room, I can match that…I can. 

3: 25% more muscle!!

Emsculpt claims that muscles are forced to adapt, resulting in an increased number and growth of muscle fibres and cells. Clinical studies showed a 25% growth in muscle volume on average. Patients found that EMSCULPT NEO® helped to strengthen, firm and tighten the treated muscles.

Ok….I’ll get back to you on this one. Covid has delayed my Rogue squat rack from arriving. 

4: 30% less fat!!!

Yeah, yeah, yeah….yeah. In four sessions? 2 hours? What the….what is this witch craft?

Simultaneous Radio Frequency, or RF for short? Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly rises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm up activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat. 

5: There's no proof

Emsculpt Neo is the first Health Canada & FDA-cleared device on the market to patent and combine electromagnetic energy with radio frequency heat to synergistically produce more muscle and reduce fat said Dr. Sarah Kennea, Medical Director at Whistler Medical Aesthetics®. “There is no other manufacturer or company that is producing, let alone proving the same results. BTL has over seven peer-reviewed publications and numerous clinical studies that involve MRI, CT scans, and histological data scientifically proving the results of their technology. There are irrefutable studies using MRI, Ultrasound, and CT scans that proved that this machine was producing more muscle and reducing fat. 

OK…moving on.

Clinical Studies Pfft...show me some real people!
