About Body Sculpting

Commitment to a healthy diet and regular exercise improves your health, but doesn’t always rid you of those last stubborn pockets of fat in problem areas. Jessica Cho, M.D. can help by using SculpSure® -- a body-contouring technology that destroys fat cells without affecting your skin. Make an appointment at Wellness at Century City to receive this effective slimming treatment.

Body Sculpting Q&A


EMSCULPT NEO builds off the legacy of its predecessor, Emsculpt, by simultaneously emitting both radio frequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies.

The end result is more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard procedure, for less time and less money.


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.*

Bypassing the brain limitations, HIFEM+ energy contracts 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. Clinical studies showed on average a 25% muscle volume increase.*

Why is EMSCULPT NEO the ONE in body shaping?

EMSCULPT NEO is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that combines 2 energies for simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building in a 30-minute session. The new technology allows for one of the best options for body contouring.

Am I a candidate?

If you can benefit from less fat and more muscle, the EMSCULPT NEO procedure may be a great fit. Call or book a consultation today.

What areas can be treated with EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO can be applied over the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms & calves. Each treatment can target stubborn areas or the areas that you want to enhance!

Does EMSCULPT NEO really work?

Yes! EMSCULPT NEO and the embedded high intensity magnetic field (HIFEM) technology has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies.* Moreover, 30 scientific publications make HIFEM the most intensively researched body contouring technology since its introduction in 2018.

What does EMSCULPT NEO therapy feel like?

You can feel intense muscle contractions together with a heating sensation in the treated area which is comparable to hot stone massage. There is no pain and no downtime. The area after the treatment may feel slightly sore, just like the soreness felt after a workout.


What is EMTONE?

EMTONE is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal and mechanical energy to eliminate all main causes of cellulite and loose skin effectively and non-invasively.

How does it work?

Synergistic emission of Monopolar Radiofrequency and Targeted Pressure Energy enables treatment of the root causes instead of suppressing the symptoms. This means that you not only see the difference, but you can actually feel it.

Am I A Candidate?

EMTONE is ideal for anyone looking for non-invasive cellulite reduction and overall improvement of skin appearance and physiological function. EMTONE is also ideal for anyone looking to use it to enhance EMSCULPT NEO outcomes through the tightening of skin. Contact our office today to get started on EMTONE!

What Is The Treatment Time?

During the first visit, your provider helps design your individual treatment plan. Most patients undergo 4 treatments, scheduled once or twice a week. A treatment typically takes about 20 minutes depending on the treated area.

What Does It Feel Like?

Revolutionary EMTONE technology is based on a simultaneous delivery of thermal and mechanical energy. The most common perception of the therapy is that it is similar to a hot stone massage with intense mechanical vibrations. The treatment is performed in a relaxing lying-down position. There is no pain and no downtime.

How Fast Will I See Results?

Patients have reported improvements after a single treatment session. The results typically continue to improve over the next few months. With no downtime, you may resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.


What is EMSELLA?

A breakthrough treatment for incontinence and confidence. This unique technology revolutionizes intimate health and wellness by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option.

How does it work?

Key effectiveness is based on focused electromagnetic energy. A single EMSELLA session induces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important in muscle re-education of incontinent patients.

Am I A Candidate?

EMSELLA is a great option for women and men of any age who desire a solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life.

What Is The Treatment Time?

Your provider will tailor a treatment plan for you. A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes and you will need about 6 sessions, scheduled twice a week.

What Does It Feel Like?

You will experience tingling and pelvic floor muscle contractions during the procedure. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.

How Fast Will I See Results?

You may observe improvement after a single session. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.


What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-cleared laser treatment that destroys fat cells in specified areas. It’s noninvasive, meaning it doesn’t involve incisions or surgery. The treatment works best on stubborn fat zones, including the inner and outer thighs, love handles, back, and belly.

How does SculpSure work?

Dr. Cho applies the laser to the preselected treatment areas. It targets the fat cells that lie underneath your skin, heating them to a temperature that damages their structure, ultimately destroying them. Your lymphatic system then naturally disposes of the damaged fat cells, so they’re permanently removed.

What should I expect at an appointment?

You’ll lie on an exam table as Dr. Cho applies the SculpSure laser to the target area. You may feel a slight cooling sensation, alternating with heat and tingling. The cooling is designed to keep your skin comfortable, and it cycles on and off, along with the heat of the laser, throughout the treatment.
The entire session takes about 25 minutes. You can resume normal activities immediately afterward, as no downtime for recovery is necessary.

When will I see results?

You may notice results in as few as six weeks, but optimal results usually appear at about 12 weeks post-treatment, because your body needs time to get rid of the destroyed fat cells. Studies show that areas treated with SculpSure experience a 24% reduction in fat cells.

How many treatments will I need?

The SculpSure treatment completely destroys fat cells, so you don’t need to come back year after year for repeat treatments. However, certain stubborn areas benefit from multiple treatments, scheduled about six weeks apart.
In your initial consultation, Dr. Cho discusses your potential results and devises a treatment schedule that suits your goals.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?

Women and men who are at a healthy weight, but have problem areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise, are the best candidates for SculpSure. When you lose weight with conventional diet and exercise methods, your fat cells shrink, but don’t go away. With SculpSure, the fat cells are completely destroyed, so they can’t become enlarged again in the future.
