Emsculpt Neo vs. CoolSculpting: 4 Key Differences for Your Body Contouring


At the Anti Aging Medical and Laser Clinic, CoolSculpting is one of our most popular treatments for body contouring, and we’re often asked about the differences between it and Emsculpt Neo. To help you understand the two procedures better, here are four key differences between CoolSculpting and Emsculpt Neo, both of which are non-surgical and FDA-cleared.


CoolSculpting targets fat while Emsculpt Neo tones muscles


CoolSculpting is a popular choice for non-surgical fat reduction, specifically designed to reduce unwanted bulges in areas such as the abs, thighs, hips, flanks, upper arms, back, banana rolls, and under the chin. The treatment uses cryolipolysis technology, which delivers intense cold temperatures to the skin and directly causes a portion of the fat cells to die, reducing fat in the target area.

On the other hand, Emsculpt Neo focuses on building and toning muscle fibers in areas such as the abs, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. The procedure uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to induce supramaximal contractions, resulting in the thickening and toning of muscle fibers. While it may result in some residual fat reduction, this is not its primary purpose, and some doctors may recommend combining it with CoolSculpting for optimal results.

CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis and Emsculpt Neo uses HIFEM


CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, while Emsculpt Neo uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to induce muscle contractions. The CoolSculpting applicator slightly suctions the skin and fat tissue into cooling cups to bring them to a controlled temperature, while Emsculpt Neo uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscles in the treatment area.


Results: Gradual fat reduction vs. muscle thickening and toning


CoolSculpting results in gradual fat reduction through the natural metabolic process of flushing out affected fat cells. The results are indefinite as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, but it can take several weeks to see full results.


Emsculpt Neo results in visible muscle thickening and toning, often comparable to months of workout results, within 4 weeks of the final treatment. However, the results are not permanent and require regular follow-up treatments to maintain them.


Safety: Both treatments are non-surgical and FDA-cleared


CoolSculpting has a proven safety record and has been FDA-cleared for fat reduction for over a decade, while Emsculpt Neo is a relatively new technology for muscle toning. Both procedures are non-surgical and pain-free, but CoolSculpting has a longer track record for safety and efficacy.


In conclusion, CoolSculpting and Emsculpt Neo are both effective and non-surgical body contouring options, but they target different areas and use different technologies. To determine which procedure is right for you, it’s best to consult with a medical professional who can assess your specific needs and goals.
