Scientific advances in weight loss

Scientific advances in weight loss

While a plant-forward and whole food diet, solid sleep, hormone regulation, and daily activity are still essentials for weight management and optimal metabolism, we are living in an exciting time for scientific advances in weight loss technologies that support more efficient and effective weight management for virtually anyone that struggles with their metabolic health.

A perfect pair


GLP-1 agonists like semaglutide have changed the way people lose weight.  When prescribed and managed responsibly, this peptide is a "game-changer" for those that have struggled with metabolism and weight loss.  The weekly injectable medication increases satiety and reduces appetite while also regulating insulin sensitivity leading to fat loss and improved cardiometabolic markers for many. 

However, caloric restriction runs the risk of depleting muscle, which is why our team emphasizes the importance of proper protein intake and strength training while using this class of medications. In addition to diet and strength training, we now have access to another evidence-based approach to toning, muscle building and fat reduction to optimize your weight loss goals.

Meet EmSculpt Neo

EmSculpt Neo is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that uses radiofrequency heating for fat reduction and high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM®) for muscle strengthening and toning in a 30-minute session. The end result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard product, for less time and less money. Best of all, EmSculpt Neo has a broad patient appeal as it can treat patients up to BMI 35.

EmSculpt Neo is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies. Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm up activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body.

Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat after 4 treatments.

Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts 100% of the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workout. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt, resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. On average the muscle volume increases by 25%.
