Nobody likes body fat, mainly if it accumulates in areas like the belly or thigh. But fat is an essential source of stored energy when we can’t eat food for an extended period. Do you know your body comprises two types of fat: non-fat and fat mass? Non-fat mass is essential and present in your bones, liver, kidneys, intestines, and muscles. Fat in these places is required for your body to function normally. Fat mass is stored in fatty tissues and used as energy for your body. It surrounds your organs and sits just under the skin. However, too much stored fat can lead to chronic diseases and conditions, including heart failure, diabetes, obesity, and fatigue. Irrespective of all the reasons, nobody likes fat and wants it on their bodies. The most problematic areas are the belly, flank, thighs, buttocks, etc. Many factors contribute to excess weight gain among adults and youth. Today, around 41.9% of adults are obese in the United States.

Water retention and fat are common causes of weight gain in flank areas. And no food or exercise can immediately remove your flank fat. You may be able to work toward removing the fat from the area, but it takes hard work. It is said that finding a way to target your flank fat solely is difficult. Regular exercise and diet changes may help for some, while it may not work for others. It entirely depends on how regular you are in the routine. However, medical advances are changing our ability to treat complex issues. Today, treatment methods are not confined to a surgical procedure for fat removal. Emsculpt NEO is the first non-invasive device designed to eliminate fat cells and build muscle non-invasively by a unique combination of radiofrequency heating & HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology) in a single 30-minute treatment session.

Emsculpt NEO Can Help

No preparation is required for the appointment as it is a non-invasive procedure. The Emsculpt NEO process is entirely painless. It is a 30min procedure where the device is strapped to your targeted area (stomach, butt, arm, or calf). The healthcare practitioner turns the device to its lowest setting as the power at a higher level can stress the muscles and even cause a hernia. The patients experience contractions for a few seconds now and then.

Moreover, while other treatment methods have many side effects, Emsculpt NEO has no severe side effects. Patients may experience mild soreness and redness in the area. There is no downtime, and patients can easily return to work, and it can be tailored to each person.
