Reduce Fat & Build Muscle
At CaTara Medical Spa, we find that our patients have aesthetic goals outside of beautiful skin. Non-invasive body sculpting and fat reduction treatments are a growing service option because of its quick, easy process and highly effective results.
Working hard in the gym should come with a payoff, but sometimes it is hard to achieve results in a targeted area for fat reduction and muscle tone. The abdomen, buttocks, and other body zones are all a part of many people’s fitness goals. The secret to achieving those goals? Meet Emsculpt NEO®.
Emsculpt NEO in Chicago and Algonquin is an advanced fat reduction and muscle-building treatment. It combines high-intensity electromagnetic therapy with radiofrequency thermal energy to create muscle contractions and trigger lipolysis. This works the muscle tissue at an astounding rate, equivalent to 20,000 contractions, while permanently damaging fat cells. Emsculpt NEO is FDA-cleared to treat 5 different areas of the body: buttocks, abdomen, arms, calves, and thighs.

The Emsculpt NEO Process
What to Expect
Before your Emsculpt NEO treatment in Chicago or Algonquin, you'll meet with a provider for a body sculpting consultation. They will examine your treatment area(s), answer your questions, and discuss you concerns and goals for this treatment. The consultation process helps us determine this is the best treatment for you and how many sessions are needed for your desired results.
Emsculpt NEO Treatment
For the procedure itself, we will make sure you are in a comfortable position before applying the Emsculpt NEO applicators. You will feel the muscle contractions created by the electromagnetic energy and some heat, but it will not be painful. We can adjust the Emsculpt NEO to your tolerance level for the duration of the treatment.
You may feel a difference in muscle strength in as little as one Emsculpt NEO session, but for the best results we recommend a series of treatments. We will determine the amount of treatment sessions in the series during your consultation, when we create your treatment program.
- Remove any metal materials, like belts and jewelry before the treatment itself.
- Maintain a healthy diet, exercise, and consistent weight.
- Complete your usual routine after an intense workout; drink an adequate amount of water and eat a balanced meal that includes protein to promote muscle growth and fat reduction.
- Maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to keep your results permanent, as you need to use your muscles for them to stay toned and avoid fat buildup.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Emsculpt NEO painful?
An Emsculpt NEO treatment should not be painful. Your CaTara provider will tailor the intensity of the treatment according to your tolerance level. You will experience the sensation of muscle contractions as you would with traditional exercise.
How long do Emsculpt NEO results last?
Emsculpt NEO results can be permanent; it all depends on your own maintenance for the enhanced muscle tone and fat loss. You should continue a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain your Emsculpt NEO results.
How is Emsculpt Neo different than other body contouring treatments?
There are different types of body contouring treatments, some use cooling or freezing technology to reduce fat. The main difference is that Emsculpt also targets muscle. If you only reduce fat without building muscle you could be left with sagging skin. The type of body contouring/shaping you choose depends on your concerns and priorities for a body contouring treatment. If you want to reduce fat AND build muscle, Emsculpt NEO is the answer.
Will I lose weight with Emsculpt NEO?
It's important to note Emsculpt NEO is not a weight loss procedure. You should be at or near your ideal weight to get the best results from this treatment. You can expect enhanced muscle tone and strength and fat reduction from Emsculpt NEO, not significant weight loss.
Am I a good candidate for Emsculpt NEO?
You are a good candidate for Emsculpt NEO if you are at or near your ideal weight and desire fat loss and firmer, stronger muscles in the buttocks, abdomen, arms, calves, or thighs. You can try out our Virtual Consultation Tool to learn if Emsculpt NEO is right for you.
