Those looking to tone their bodies and tighten their faces in 2024 may not need to go under the knife—or brave the gym rush—to achieve the results they desire. And they can even text or email while watching the years melt away.

Thanks to a new trio of non-invasive treatments offered by Dr. Bruce E. Katz, Director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York City—Emsculpt, Emsculpt Neo, and Emface—patients can see increased muscle mass, reduced body fat, and tighter skin, all in a few sessions.

Katz, a Manhattan-based board-certified dermatologist with over three decades of experience in cosmetic dermatology, had a hand in developing all three iterations of Emsculpt. “When Emsculpt was first introduced in 2017, it was revolutionary,” he said. “It was the first time in the history of body contouring where we could actually build muscle and melt fat, as opposed to just tightening skin, removing fat, or treating cellulite.”

Emsculpt works by using high-intensity electromagnetic waves to contract muscles about 20,000 times in a 20- to 30-minute period. Its successor, Emsculpt Neo—introduced in 2020—added radio frequency in combination with high-intensity electromagnetic waves, making it even more effective in removing fat and building more muscle than the original Emsculpt. Emface, which utilizes a combination of high-intensity electrical stimulation and radiofrequency, selectively targets and strengthens facial muscles while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, leading to a tighter, more lifted appearance.

“One of our patients’ favorite things about these treatments is that they are all hands-free, meaning that once the applicator is applied to the desired area, the provider can step out of the room,” said Katz. “Patients can check their email or use their phone for a half hour, and come out looking thinner, younger, and more sculpted.”

Katz, who has completed thousands of Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo treatments and hundreds of Emface treatments at his practice, recommends Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo to those looking to lose fat or tone muscle in as many as 10 different body parts, including the arms, thighs, abdomen, calves, and more. He’s even noticed benefits that go beyond aesthetics: “We’ve actually found that Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo can improve back pain, as the strengthening of the abdominal muscles takes pressure off the back,” he said. “Emface is best suited for those who have lost volume in their face due to age,” he adds, “as the treatment can restore fullness and create a more youthful appearance.”

Katz—who has consistently been recognized by Castle Connolly, New York Magazine, and Newsweek as one of the best cosmetic dermatologists in the country—is currently welcoming new patients to his Manhattan location, while also holding posts such as Clinical Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
