Advertorial: Treating the Inner Thighs with EMSCULPT NEO

08 Dec 2022

A study has claimed 94% patient satisfaction with EMSCULPT NEO treatment to the inner thighs

One of the most stubborn areas to treat on the female body is, without any doubt, the inner thighs. Nevertheless, Dr Diane Duncan, globally recognised plastic and reconstructive surgeon, has published an MRI study on synchronised high-intensity focused electromagnetic field (HIFEM) and radiofrequency (RF) in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology which reveals some amazing results achieved with the use of EMSCULPT NEO treatments.1 Dr Duncan presents these impressive results after four synchronised HIFEM and RF treatments on inner thighs: significant fat reduction (-27.4%) and muscle mass increase (+23.2%) at three months post-treatment.1 

Demand for brilliant results 

Modern-day beauty standards and aesthetic aspirations have propelled interest in new and safer techniques for non-invasive body contouring. As the public’s demand for greater efficacy and safety has grown steadily over the past decades, so too has the search for and development of new measures for fat reduction. The main fat reduction devices approved for use in aesthetic medicine employ cryolipolysis, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), lasers, RF or HIFEM.2-6 

Simultaneous application of HIFEM and synchronised RF might be one possibility to treat both fat and muscles in the same session. HIFEM generates an electromagnetic field that activates neuromuscular tissue through induced electric current, leading to supramaximal muscle contractions and creating a significant energy demand that forces muscles to utilise the stored energy in adipocytes in the form of free fatty acids. Consequently, under the extreme muscle load, the size number of adipocytes are reduced.

Dr Duncan’s research not only confirms the efficacy and safety of simultaneous application of HIFEM and synchronised RF for non-invasive fat reduction and muscle enhancement in the inner thigh, but also highlights a significantly high level of patient satisfaction (94%) with this combination.1 Results imply that the application of HIFEM and synchronised RF is more effective than using these energies alone. 

Analysis of magnetic resonance images and thigh circumference showed that therapy combining HIFEM and RF is highly effective for subcutaneous fat reduction and increased muscle thickness in inner thighs. 

EMSCULPT in the clinic 

When launched in 2018, the EMSCULPT therapy was the world’s first and only treatment to use HIFEM technology to build muscle and sculpt the body in a 30-minute session. EMSCULPT NEO, launched in 2020, expanded upon its predecessor’s capabilities by simultaneously delivering heat and magnetic energy. The result provides more fat reduction and more muscle growth than any single gold standard product. Clinical studies have shown that, on average, patients experience a 30% fat reduction and a 25% increase in muscle in the treated area.* 

With over a million treatments administered, EMSCULPT and EMSCULPT NEO are gold standards in non-invasive body contouring.
