Device manufacturer BTL Aesthetics has launched the EMSCULPT NEO body contouring device, combining radiofrequency heating and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) waves.
According to the company, the results of seven new clinical studies with a combined cohort of 167 patients indicate that the device has an average of 30% fat reduction and 25% increase in muscle mass.
BTL explains that unlike the original EMsculpt which utilises HIFEM, the new EMsulpt Neo combines radiofrequency with HIFEM, which the company states allows for patients with a higher BMI up to 35 to be treated.
Eddie Campbell-Adams, sales and marketing director for BTL UK, commented, “Patients want fast and efficient treatments with zero downtime and great results. EMSCULPT NEO ensures that expectations are exceeded, due to its ability to maximise burning fat and building muscle in the same treatment. This is a result of us combining the technologies of trusted radiofrequency heating to burn fat and established high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves which is proven to both build muscle and burn fat. We look forward to delivering the first systems in the UK in the coming weeks.”
