Dr. Bruce Katz, founder and director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center is the first practice to introduce, not just a new technology, but an entirely new category to sculpting the abdomen. The Emsculpt by BTL is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that simultaneously addresses both Muscle and Fat.
BTL Emsculpt utilizes HIFEM energy to induce powerful muscle contractions and kill fat cells. The device is FDA-cleared for the improvement of abdominal tone and strengthening of the abdominal muscles.
"This is a breakthrough device using a completely new energy source--high intensity focused electromagnetic fields- first of its kind in the aesthetic space," said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz. "We will be able to tighten the muscle layer which we couldn't do before--a great benefit for body contouring," added Dr. Katz in his interview with American Health & Beauty.
Dr. Katz stated to AHB, "We're excited because it is brand new technology which can treat fat as well as the muscle layer!"
"The current approach to body shaping is through circumferential reduction; however, overall body contour is affected by muscle structure as well," Dr. Katz said in a release. "BTL Emsculpt goes beyond waist line reduction to address abdominal contouring through muscle tone, so I'm thrilled to now offer this combination to my patients," added Dr. Katz.
In a recent press release, Juva Skin & Laser Center released the following facts about EMSCULPT:
Muscles represent 35% of the human body, but existing aesthetic treatments only address fat. BTL Emsculpt introduces a first of its kind application of a unique magnetic field. HIFEM technology penetrates through the skin to impact fat, as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also breakdown fat. This is the ONLY technology that destroys fat while simultaneously building muscle, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.
Tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies utilizing all four established methods of evaluation, including MRI, CT and Ultrasound, BTL Emsculpt delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
- 19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- .44cm reduction in thickness of subcutaneous abdominal fat layer
- Average waist reduction of 4.4cm
- 91% satisfaction with treatment results
Dr. Bruce E. Katz, was the first physician in the United States to introduce SmartLipo, a groundbreaking laser fat removal procedure and EM-Sculpt, the newest revolution in body sculpting. Dr. Katz also pioneered Cellulaze, the Madonna Lift, and SculpSure, the first non-invasive, 25-minute fat removal treatment.
For optimal results, Dr. Katz recommends four 30-minute treatment sessions over the course of a two- week period. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over a 6-month time period. Emsculpt treatments are $975/treatment at his practice.
