Tone Up With This New Body Contouring Treatment at Mendis Aesthetics
You know the drill: achieving that trim figure and those taut muscles takes hard work, dedication, and some level of pain. And with the new normal that sees many working from home, it’s no surprise that the only exercise you get during the day is a walk to the fridge and back. In short, less movement and more food intake equal piling on the pounds.
Fortunately, help is at hand. Meet the new EmSculpt Neo. While most body contouring devices are either designed to only tone muscle or burn fat, this non-invasive treatment offers both benefits in one fell swoop.
The next generation of the already popular EmSculpt, which uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to induce supramaximal (higher or greater) contractions, the FDA-approved EmSculpt Neo simultaneously emits both radio frequency (RF) and HIFEM+ energies to help you reduce fat and gain muscle, saving time and effort.
How does this work? Through RF heating, the temperature quickly raises the muscle temperature by several degrees, preparing it for stress, just as how it would respond to a pre-workout warm-up activity. In fact, it takes less than four minutes for the temperature in the subcutaneous fat area to reach apoptosis levels, where the fat cells are permanently destroyed and gradually removed via the body’s natural processes.
At the same time, the HIFEM+ energies are able to contract the muscle fibres at frequencies and intensities that are unattainable during a regular workout. This stress forces the muscles to adapt under the intense contractions, which in turn increases the number and growth of the muscle fibres and cells.
The result, according to the clinical studies done, is a 30 per cent reduction in fat and 25 per cent growth in muscle mass on average. The treatment can be done on the buttocks, thighs, calves, tummy and arms (both biceps and triceps). Most importantly, one session takes only 30 minutes and comes with no downtime at all—zip in, zip out.

In addition, the EmSculpt Neo treatment is also ideal in addressing diastasis recti, a condition commonly seen in post-partum women. In fact, an estimated one in two women experience it. This is where the abdominal muscles on either side of the belly button are separated, making it extremely difficult to tone the lower tummy. With regular EmSculpt Neo sessions, the core muscles gradually regain strength and muscle separation is reduced by 19 per cent.
The good news: you can try this new treatment at Mendis Aesthetics. With over 20 years of experience in the field of advanced medical aesthetics, Dr Rohan Mendis, the founder of Mendis Aesthetics, explains, “EmSculpt Neo is a great solution particularly for those stubborn spots such as abdomen and buttocks. Every 30-minute session is equivalent to 20,000 muscular contractions at a full 100 per cent, versus a workout with weights which only peaks at 60 per cent contraction. Therefore, in addition to removing fat, it achieves results that are far superior to what any manual exercise regime could ever achieve.”

For best results, a course of four sessions, each done five days apart, is recommended. Of course, like any fitness and weight loss plan, a healthy diet and regular exercise are highly recommended to keep your new silhouette in shape. In addition, Dr Mendis also adds that once-a-month follow-up sessions will help with overall maintenance and ensure sustained results.
