You’ve probably heard about Emsculpt, the buzz-worthy body contouring treatment that non-invasively eliminates fat and builds muscle mass. JUVA was one of the original research sites that helped in the development of the Emsculpt technology. Since its release last year, the next-generation device garnered widespread attention for its ability to improve problem areas like the abdomen and buttocks. Now, thanks to ongoing research and a smaller treatment applicator, Emsculpt can be used to achieve impressive results for the biceps, triceps, and calves!

If you work hard to improve your body through diet and exercise but you aren’t seeing results in certain areas, Emsculpt may be right for you. As our dedicated team at JUVA continues to expand Emsculpt into new treatment areas, you’ll be able to rely on this safe and effective solution to reach the peak of your fitness goals.

How it Works

Emsculpt is a breakthrough addition to the field of non-invasive, non-surgical body contouring. It utilizes High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to cause painless muscle contractions that eliminate fat and build new muscle.

The treatment affects the targeted area much like a strenuous workout, but the rate of contractions exceeds what you could achieve during your most demanding gym session. Best of all, you don’t even need to break a sweat to achieve a toned, fit look with Emsculpt. Our staff will create a treatment plan just for you, which typically consists of four short sessions over two weeks.  

The Impressive Results Our Patients Are Seeing

Many patients come to JUVA wanting to firm up problem areas without resorting to surgery or other invasive approaches. Emsculpt allows them to achieve those goals. Thanks to meticulous patient tracking efforts, there is significant data to prove that people are seeing great results from their Emsculpt sessions.

BTL, the company behind the device, reported that seven multi-center studies showed an average muscle mass increase of 19 percent and a 96 percent patient satisfaction rate. Here at JUVA, Director and Dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz is proud to announce that 80% of patients saw improvement in circumferential measurements of the arms and calves, which were tighter and firmer after treatment.

Emsculpt Research Pioneered by Dr. Katz

Recently, Dr. Katz presented his Emsculpt studies at the 39th Annual Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery (ASLMS) that took place March 27th–31st. He is committed to the ongoing evolution of Emsculpt and patient satisfaction.
