Emsculpt vs. Emsculpt NEO: What’s the Difference?

Body Contouring in Birmingham, AL

preparing for Emsculpt, a treatment for body contouring in Birmingham, AL

Our most popular body contouring treatments are performed with our Emsculpt devices. We offer Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO, as well as several other products designed by BTL. The names of these products are often used interchangeably, but they are not quite the same. At Smart Skin, we use Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO to address different aspects of body contouring in Birmingham, AL.


Emsculpt is a body contouring technology designed by BTL, the leading manufacturer of aesthetic tech. This device is designed to improve functional muscle in several areas throughout the body.

Emsculpt focuses on improving muscle mass in areas of the body that are difficult to target with exercise or in places that are difficult, even with exercise, to create any visible definition. Emsculpt uses high-intensity electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to induce muscle contractions. In a 30-minute treatment session, Emsculpt initiates 20,000 contractions. The results are far beyond anything you could achieve, even with a dedicated gym workout.

With the proper care, maintenance appointments, and a healthy lifestyle, results can last for months or be retained indefinitely.

Emsculpt NEO

We recommend Emsculpt NEO if you are looking to reduce fat as well as build muscle, trimming and tightening your figure. Emsculpt NEO builds muscle, but it also helps reduce fat, tighten skin, and increase muscle tone.

In addition to HIFEM, Emsculpt NEO also uses radiofrequency technology. While the electromagnetic stimulation induces muscle contractions, the heat from the radiofrequency penetrates deep into the skin and breaks down fat.

The only thing more frustrating than working out and not being able to build muscle in those especially hard-to-reach areas is being unable to bust stubborn pockets of fat. Emsculpt NEO makes use of several different applicators designed specifically to reach those areas. Once the fat molecules have been broken down, your body naturally flushes them out. Emsculpt NEO has proven to reduce up to 30% of fat.
