NewBeauty 2019 Award Winner for Best Innovations!

Dr. Vivian Bucay introduces a safe and non-surgical butt lift with innovative technology, BTL’s EMSCULPT! Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics is currently the only facility in the San Antonio area which offers EMSCULPT.


EMSCULPT NEO is the first non-invasive device designed to eliminate fat cells and build muscle non-invasively by a unique combination of radiofrequency heating & HIFEM in a single 30-minute treatment session.

After the treatment, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from the body through metabolic processes. EMSCULPT NEO does not compare to liposuction as EMSCULPT NEO is a completely non-invasive procedure. It does not require surgery, needles, anesthesia, or any downtime.. There is no other device in the aesthetic field that treats both fat and muscle in a single treatment.

Each patient's results may vary, but the best time to see the final results is 3 months after the last treatment.

FDA Cleared: Abdomen, Buttocks, Saddlebags, Front of thighs, Back of thighs, Arms, and Calves.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

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 100% of 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. On average the muscle volume increases by 25%.

EMSCULPT is based on high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy. A single EMSCULPT session feels like thousands of powerful muscle contractions, which are extremely important in improving the tone and strength of your muscles.

These powerful induced muscle contractions are not achievable through voluntary contractions. The muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme conditions. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure, resulting in muscle building and sculpting your body.*

FDA Cleared: Calves, Buttocks, Arms, Abdomen

How Does EMSCULPT Body Contouring Work?

Delivering almost 20,000 muscular contractions per 30 minute-session, EMSCULPT increases the strength and tone of the gluteal region.  This is used to help even athletic and fit patients take their buttocks to the next level. The unique application of the HIFEM technology penetrates through the skin to impact the muscle tissue. Once penetrated, the energy induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are not achievable by the human brain. The process results in toning, firming and strengthening of the buttocks.

EMSCULPT Treatment Areas

Emsculpt, as mentioned above, is a non-surgical alternative to the controversial and popular butt lift. However, EMSCULPT does not only focus on that one area. Another popular treatment spot is the abdominal region. The technology of EMSCULPT is used to tighten and strengthen core abdominal muscles for a more tone and firm abdomen. This treatment is perfect for anyone who is trying to achieve their goals of tighter and toner abs and glutes!

Results After EMSCULPT Treatment

In clinical evaluations measuring the efficacy of HIFEM therapy for non-invasive buttock augmentation and lifting, patient satisfaction levels averaged high, independent of weight loss. Ninety-five percent of participants reported satisfaction with treatment results and 85% reported significant improvement in lift and muscular tone of the buttocks.
