Frequently Asked Questions

What causes fatty upper arms?


Untoned flabby arms are typically deemed the body part both men and women hate the most. Not surprisingly, the culprit is stubborn fat pockets that are difficult to target.


How can I tone my arms with Emsculpt?


Emsculpt utilizes electromagnetic technology that contracts muscles which aids to tone the arms and the reduction of fat. Emsculpt, once dedicated to building the abdominals, can now be used to build up muscles in the biceps and triceps! The applicators for the biceps and triceps have a slightly different shape from the body applicators, allowing the machine to do an amazing job at building your arm muscles.


How long will I see results from Emsculpt?


We typically recommend 4 treatments of Emsculpt to see optimal results. Results can last up to one year with one yearly maintenance treatment after that.


Is Emsculpt painful?


Emsculpt is painless. Patients describe the Emsculpt treatment as an intense massage, making it the perfect lunchtime treatment.


Is Emsculpt safe for the arms? 


Emsculpt is FDA-cleared to treat the arms as well as the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs  thanks to ongoing clinical research by Dr. Katz to help bring safe and effective treatment options to the patients at JUVA.
