Before & After EMSCULPT in NYC

At Dr. Halaas’s offices in NYC and Westchester, Sharrona Katz-Moulay treats patients with Emsculpt. She is a highly accomplished Senior Medical Aesthetics professional and served as a regional master clinical trainer for the makers of Emsculpt. Having trained dozens of physicians on the use of the Emsculpt device, Sharrona’s experience and skill with the Emsculpt NEO bring out the best results for all of our patients.

How Emsculpt NEO Works

By utilizing high-intensity focused electromagnetic fields (HIFEM) and specially designed synchronized radiofrequency heating, Emsculpt treatments naturally sculpt fat and tighten muscles, producing remarkable body contouring results without surgery or downtime. High intensity or ‘supramaximal’ contractions are generated in the muscles, causing deep remodeling of their inner workings. This process strengthens existing muscle fibers and builds new ones, as well as breaks down the fat cells in the surrounding area.

The results generated by 3-4 sessions of Emsculpt are comparable to 6-12 months of strict dieting and regular exercise, making it a fast, effective way to strengthen muscle and burn fat. We offer quick maintenance treatments at 3-month intervals.

Which Areas Can You Treat with Emsculpt NEO?

It's FDA approved for the strengthening, toning, and firming of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and calves, as well as for lipolysis of the abdomen – allowing it to treat a range of cosmetic or medical concerns, including:

  • Rectus diastasis (separation of the abdominal muscles)
  • Shaping and lifting the buttocks
  • Fat burning, particularly in the abdomen
  • Feeling weak or lacking strength in the arms, thighs, or calves

“EMSCULPT NEO is yet another revolutionary device. Treatment time is the same as original Emsculpt but with dramatic results on the fat and the ability to treat a much wider range of patients up to BMI 35.”
