EMSCULPT NEO VS COOLSCULPTING: COMPARING THE TOP BODY CONTOURING TREATMENTS
EMSCULPT NEO VS COOLSCULPTING: COMPARING THE TOP BODY CONTOURING TREATMENTS
The search for a perfect solution to the body of your dreams seems as though it never ends. There is always something to try, a method you’re just learning about, or another obstacle that gets in the way. You’re not alone in feeling as though it’s near impossible to figure out what will work.
While many people try every diet imaginable and buy memberships to the gym, sometimes those are not even enough to change your physique. The truth is that our bodies are heavily dependent on genetics, gender, and hormones. No matter how much you diet and exercise, it sometimes won’t be enough to build washboard abs, burn off belly fat, or firm the skin.
Thankfully, there are perfect nonsurgical body contouring treatments capable of helping you achieve all that and much more. Read on to learn more about Emsculpt NEO and CoolSculpting.

WHAT IS EMSCULPT NEO?
Emsculpt NEO is a nonsurgical contouring device that tightens skin, reduces stubborn fat, and sculpts attractive muscles achieving firmer, leaner upper arms, calves, thighs, abs, and glutes.
With high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy or HIFEM, Emsculpt NEO takes your workout to a higher level, offering the equivalent of 20,000 squats (or crunches, depending on your area of coverage) in one 30-minute session. Now, patients can choose to burn fat while building muscle at the same time.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EMSCULPT AND EMSCULPT NEO?
Before deciding which service you prefer, let’s go through what happens to your body with Emsculpt in comparison to Emsculpt NEO. Both treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive procedures that tone, strengthen, and define the body so effectively that even the most dedicated gym-goers cannot achieve such results. And that’s after only one session. So, what sets the two apart?
As the next generation of fat-melting, muscle-building technology, Emsculpt NEO takes your results to a new level.
Emsculpt NEO is different from Emsculpt because it:
- Provides the equivalence of 4,000 more muscle contractions
- Includes Radio Frequency (RF) energy that directly kills fat
- Offers up to 11% more fat loss
- Results in permanent fat loss that is sustainable
- Increases muscle mass up to 9% more
- Boosts fat reduction for those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or lower
Taking all the benefits of the original Emsculpt, Emsculpt NEO brings RF radiofrequency into the equation for results that simply cannot be found elsewhere. Perhaps best of all, Emsculpt NEO delivers flexibility in the areas that you want to target. Inner thighs, outer thighs, and other muscle groups that might have been too small in the past can now tone up. With the latest technology, Emsculpt NEO tightens skin for a longer period. While Emsculpt results typically last 6 months to a year, Emsculpt NEO results are maintainable for far longer with the proper dedication to your diet and exercise.
HOW OFTEN CAN YOU DO EMSCULPT NEO SESSIONS?
Since Emsculpt NEO combines RF with HIFEM technology, it requires more time between sessions for optimal results. There are also contraindications to the treatment, or circumstances that indicate patients should not use Emsculpt NEO, such as those with:
- Electrical devices or implants, including pacemakers, defibrillators, and some intrauterine devices
- Lung diseases
It is also good to plan your treatments around menstruation, as Emsculpt NEO uses intense contractions, which can increase cramps and lead to a heavier flow.
At Wellnessesity, we recommend scheduling your treatments once every 7 days, with two to four sessions in total depending on your desired outcome. During your consultation, we will be happy to discuss the best plan to meet your needs.
EMSCULPT NEO APPLICATORS DELIVER GROUNDBREAKING IMPROVEMENTS
The days of trying to target tricky areas with body contouring applicators that aren’t perfect fits are over. Instead, Emsculpt NEO uses several applicators for precise effects that reach new treatment areas. For example, the Edge Applicator gives patients 180-degree coverage to contour their natural curves. Deepening a V shape for men and highlighting the waist for women. In addition, it strengthens the core, relieves back pain, and helps with posture.
A SAFER FAT BURNING OPTION
Reducing up to 30% body fat and increasing muscle mass by 25% over your lunch break might not have seemed feasible in the past, but today, it’s achievable. As the next generation in advanced muscle building without surgery, Emsculpt NEO is a safe option for your body. While regular exercise paired with a good diet remains the safest way to achieve body goals, it might not be feasible for everyone, leading the way to a scientifically proven body contouring method.
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
Another popular body contouring treatment is CoolSculpting. Much like Emsculpt, CoolSculpting is also a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. However, instead of using HIFEM and RF energy, CoolSculpting uses an advanced cooling technology called Cryolipolysis. Two Harvard scientists who realized fat cells could not withstand cold temperatures like skin cells or surrounding tissue, developed this extreme cooling.
HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK?
During treatments, a technician places the proprietary CoolSculpting applicator over the area you wish to target. The cooling panels rapidly cool the targeted fat cells without harming your skin or tissue. During the cooling cycle, the fat cells are brought to the skin’s surface with a natural vacuum mechanism in the CoolSculpting machine. Once there, the advanced cooling eventually “freezes” the fat cell’s membrane. The membrane becomes very brittle and will eventually rupture. Once this occurs, the body naturally gathers those dead fat cells and processes them out of the body as a form of waste.
CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: Drawbacks
Every aesthetic treatment has a drawback, despite being non-surgical and non-invasive. While this is true for CoolSculpting, the same cannot be said for Emsculpt NEO. Emsculpt NEO is known for its high safety profile, no risks or severe side effects, and it produces incredible fat reduction and muscle-building results.
On the other hand, CoolSculpting has notable drawbacks. First, CoolSculpting is not known for being a comfortable and painless treatment. Most patients think the suction of the applicator is uncomfortable. In addition, patients have to undergo a massage of the treatment area immediately following the session, and most people describe this as unpleasant.
Moreover, CoolSculpting has more critical side effects. The most concerning is Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia. This may occur at the treatment site. This very rare risk is an infrequent reaction causing fat cells to grow larger and happens mostly in men.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EMSCULPT AND COOLSCULPTING?
So, Emsculpt NEO vs CoolSculpting? Which is the better option? As you search for the best treatment method that suits your needs, you will likely wonder about the difference between CoolSculpting and Emsculpt NEO. Both are FDA-cleared body contouring devices that require no surgery or recovery. However, depending on your specific needs, one may be a better choice.
With fat-freezing technology and a process known as Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting visibly reduces the fat that gathers in certain areas, like the hips, arms, and chin, to help smooth out stubborn areas. Authors of “Cryolipolysis for Noninvasive Body Contouring,” published in the journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, reported, “In clinical studies, cryolipolysis was shown to reduce subcutaneous fat at the treatment site by up to 25% after one treatment” with “improvements…seen in 86% of treated subjects.” These results take place several weeks after their session as the body metabolizes crystallized fat cells.
Emsculpt NEO similarly targets difficult fat areas to rapidly reduce them while building new muscle mass and defining muscle fibers. With revolutionary applicators, patients see strong, toned results within a few months. 30% fat reduction and 25% more muscle mass? No other treatment can match such dramatic results.
WHY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE PREFER EMSCULPT OVER COOLSCULPTING
When you look closely at the results and the risks, it is clear to see why so many people prefer to contour and shape their body with Emsculpt. While CoolSculpting does produce effective fat reduction results, the risks, side effects, and treatment comfortability do not outweigh the benefits. For many people, this is the deciding factor when choosing between Emsculpt or CoolSculpting. If you want to learn more about both treatments, schedule a consultation with a provider to determine which body contouring treatment suits your body and aesthetic goals.
