Noninvasive EmSculpt® Neo helps you tone your muscles and burn excess fat. But how soon after treatment sessions can you resume working out? Keep reading to learn the answer plus more about this revolutionary treatment.

Have you been prepping for summer’s skin-baring season with healthy eating and exercise, but still haven’t achieved your aesthetic goals? At Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek in Denver, Colorado, we understand. 

Board-certified dermatologist Adrienne Stewart, MD, and our care team understand how frustrating it is to exercise and diet and not get the toned results you’ve worked so hard for. That’s why we offer safe and effective body contouring as part of our comprehensive line of services. 

If you want to improve your shape and get a more sculpted, toned body, muscles play a key role. FDA-cleared nonsurgical, noninvasive EmSculpt® Neo can help give you more definition and reshape your silhouette in a fraction of the time of exercise alone. 

One question we hear time and again from clients who opt for EmSculpt Neo therapy is how soon after their sessions can they start working out? Take a moment to learn more about this revolutionary aesthetic treatment and what you can expect after your sessions. 

How EmSculpt Neo works

EmSculpt Neo combines electromagnetic and radiofrequency (RF) energies to blast fat cells, improve the production of skin proteins, and tone your muscles. The targeted fat cells break down in the days and weeks following your session, slimming your body where you need it most.

At the same time, your natural production of collagen and elastin increases. This encourages new skin cell growth, replacing your older skin with tighter, firmer cell structures. As a result, the look and feel of your skin improves. 

And EmSculpt Neo therapy’s electromagnetic technology causes your muscles to undergo supramaximal contractions. These intense contractions wear down muscle fibers much faster than during exercise. 

For example, after 30 minutes with EmSculpt Neo, your tummy muscles can contract as if they’ve completed 20,000 situps. This means your muscles restructure themselves faster, giving you firmer, stronger muscles in less time. 

There’s no pain, and you can relax during your session. While we create a personalized treatment plan for your needs and goals, most of our patients see the results they’re after with 4-6 half-hour sessions spaced out 2-3 days over 3-4 weeks.

Working out after EmSculpt Neo

One of the best things about EmSculpt Neo is that there's no downtime required. The technology targets specific muscles, so you don’t get the full-body lactic acid production you do after a normal workout. 

The buildup of lactic acid is what causes the aches and cramps you get when your muscles are exhausted. With EmSculpt Neo, you don’t experience this, so you can work out anytime after your session. In fact, it can even help clear lactic acid present in your muscles.

That being said, it’s generally a good idea to treat the targeted muscles the way you do after working out. In other words, if you get EmSculpt Neo on your abdomen, we recommend giving your tummy a rest day or two before exercising it. 

In fact, continuing your normal workouts helps enhance your EmSculpt Neo results and keeps your motivation up for maintaining your new physique. 

Results with EmSculpt Neo

Our patients love that you start to feel results after your first EmSculpt Neo session. And results continue from there, with optimal results appearing 2-4 weeks after your final session. 

The fat cells EmSculpt Neo blasts away won’t return — ever — because your body doesn’t regrow these cells. But if you gain weight, you might notice an increase in the size of fat cells in other areas of your body.

When it comes to muscle tone, your EmSculpt Neo muscle results are similar to the results you’d get with intense and thorough exercise, but at a faster, more effective pace. This means that your results last if you maintain them through healthy eating and regular exercise.
