By: Nanette Kaduchak


Nonsurgical body contouring is one of the most in-demand cosmetic procedures year after year, with countless men and women searching for a way to slim down and tone up without extensive surgery or a lengthy recovery period. Even people who exercise regularly and stick to a healthy diet often have problem areas that don’t respond to their best efforts. For these patients, nonsurgical body contouring with EMSCULPT NEO® offers the exciting opportunity to reduce unwanted fat and improve muscle tone more conveniently than ever before. At Dolce Aesthetics™ in Scottsdale, AZ, registered nurse Nanette Kaduchak performs EMSCULPT NEO body contouring to help patients reinvent their appearance and boost their confidence in as few as one session. Scroll down to learn who may be a candidate for EMSCULPT NEO and whether treatment is safe for all skin types.

What does EMSCULPT NEO do?

EMSCULPT NEO combines two powerful technologies – radiofrequency energy and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) muscle stimulation to recontour multiple areas of the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms

As radiofrequency energy heats and destroys stubborn fat cells, HIFEM energy works to stimulate muscle contractions for improved muscle tone and definition.

Am I a candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?

Generally speaking, EMSCULPT NEO is safe for most patients, with a few exceptions, including pregnant women and those patients with certain medical conditions. Another important consideration in determining if EMSCULPT NEO is right for you is how much existing muscle tone and/or excess fat you may have. While EMSCULPT NEO can produce stunning results, ideal candidates have a mild to moderate amount of stubborn fat, concealing somewhat toned muscles beneath. Candidates for EMSCULPT NEO should have already attempted to achieve their goals through traditional diet and exercise before turning to EMSCULPT NEO. Patients with a significant amount of loose skin or excess fat may be better suited to cosmetic surgery and/or other treatment options.

Can EMSCULPT NEO be used on dark skin?

The technology behind EMSCULPT NEO has advanced over time, and EMSCULPT NEO is now FDA approved to treat a much wider range of skin tones – including darker skin tones – than it originally was, though not all skin tones may be eligible for treatment. During your initial consultation for EMSCULPT NEO in the Phoenix area, Nanette will carefully evaluate your skin tone, review your overall health history, and determine whether EMSCULPT NEO may be safe, appropriate, and effective for you.

How many EMSCULPT NEO sessions will I need?

While many patients notice an improvement in their shape after one EMSCULPT NEO session, it typically takes a series of 3 – 6 treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. In addition, patients should be committed to a regular exercise regimen and healthy, balanced diet to preserve their results over time.
