EMSCULPT NEO® Body Contouring Treatment in Port St. Lucie
It’s a common frustration. You work out, stay active, and eat a healthy diet—but you still can’t seem to achieve that toned, sculpted look you desire. For some people, genetics and/or a busy lifestyle make it especially difficult to get the firm, defined look they want. Fortunately, there is a solution: non-invasive EMSCULPT NEO body contouring at the plastic surgery practice of Dr. David Lickstein and Dr. Craig Forleiter in Palm Beach. With EMSCULPT NEO, it is possible for many patients to achieve enhanced muscle definition and firmer abs, buttocks, arms, calves, and thighs without the need for plastic surgery.
What is EMSCULPT?
EMSCULPT is a revolutionary device that helps burn fat while enhancing muscle definition at the same time. Using radio frequency (RF) combined with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy (HIFEMⓇ), the EMSCULPT NEO device raises muscle temperature and initiates thousands of powerful muscle contractions, far stronger than what it’s possible to achieve through traditional exercise. Raising the temperature of a muscle by several degrees prepares it for stress, somewhat like a warm-up before working out. This increased temperature also initiates apoptosis in subcutaneous fat, permanently damaging fat cells so that they can be expelled from the body.
In response to the rapid contractions initiated by HIFEM, the treated muscles are forced to adapt, remodeling their inner structure and resulting in enhanced muscle tone and sculpting. Dr. Lickstein and Dr. Forleiter employ two different sizes of FDA-cleared EMSCULPT NEO applicators: one that is large enough to target areas like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, and a smaller applicator perfect for stimulating muscles in the arms and calves.1
Benefits of EMSCULPT
With EMSCULPT NEO, it is possible for patients to achieve not only a slimmer silhouette, but a more toned and defined appearance to their muscles that was never before possible with a non-invasive treatment. This ground-breaking body contouring solution offers patients a range of benefits, including:
A higher, tighter, more sculpted rear (almost like a non-surgical butt lift)
Firmer, more shapely thighs
Upper arms that appear slimmer and more defined
Abdominal muscles that are stronger, more toned, and better defined
Increased core strength
EMSCULPT NEO Treatment: What to Expect
Preparing for Treatment
There is nothing you need to do to prepare for EMSCULPT NEO treatment. Simply come in to Drs. Lickstein and Forleiter’s practice in Palm Beach Gardens or Port. St Lucie for your treatments, which take roughly 30 minutes per session.
The EMSCULPT Treatment Experience
EMSCULPT NEO is a non-invasive treatment that raises muscle temperature and induces powerful muscle contractions to build muscle tone. No anesthesia or numbing is necessary, and patients are able to rest comfortably for the duration of their treatment.
To perform body contouring with EMSCULPT NEO, your skilled practitioner will attach EMSCULPT NEO panels to the area to be treated. These panels will gradually bring the muscles to a slightly higher temperature, then emit a series of High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy patterns that cause the muscles to powerfully and rapidly contract—up to 20,000 times per session. You won’t feel pain, but you will definitely feel warmth and the sensation that you are undergoing an intensive workout.
Each EMSCULPT NEO session takes about 30 minutes, and for optimal results patients are encouraged to undergo at least 4 treatment sessions, spaced 2-3 days apart. Dr. Lickstein, Dr. Forleiter, and our team will help you develop the most effective treatment plan to help you achieve your body contouring goals.
Recovery After EMSCULPT NEO
Unlike surgical body contouring procedures, there is no downtime associated with the EMSCULPT NEO recovery period. Immediately following treatment, you will be able to return to your normal daily activities. You may experience some soreness in the day or two following EMSCULPT NEO treatment, as if you had just undergone an intensive workout.

EMSCULPT NEO Results
EMSCULPT NEO results may begin to appear as soon as two weeks after treatment, but most patients really begin to see improved muscle tone and definition 4-6 weeks after treatment and final results are visible after 3 months. Just one month after treatment, participants in a recent clinical study showed an average of nearly 1930.8 reduction in body fat in the area treated.2
Who is a Candidate for EMSCULPT NEO?
Most men and women who are interested in non-invasive body contouring can benefit from treatment with EMSCULPT NEO.

Frequently Asked Questions About EMSCULPT NEO
Is EMSCULPT NEO painful?
Treatment with EMSCULPT NEO is non-invasive and does not require any anesthesia or numbing. Patients simply relax while the EMSCULPT NEO device induces powerful muscle contractions. You won’t feel any pain, but you will surely feel warmth and the intense workout your muscles are getting.
Is EMSCULPT NEO safe?
Yes. EMSCULPT NEO is approved by the FDA for safe body contouring of the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, calves, and arms. No serious side effects have been reported.
How long do EMSCULPT NEO results last?
Enhanced muscle tone and definition achieved after EMSCULPT NEO are not permanent, but usually last for six months or more. A healthy diet and exercise can help patients extend their EMSCULPT NEO results, but just like a good workout, EMSCULPT NEO should be repeated by patients who desire consistent and long-term muscle tone.
