Throughout modern history, men and women have tried all sorts of gimmicks to avoid the extreme workouts necessary for shapely, toned bodies. Fortunately, non-invasive body shaping is now a reality with Emsculpt treatment from BTL, a leader in aesthetic medicine. This groundbreaking technology is available at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR.

Why aren’t we all buff?

Heredity plays a big role in body type, including muscle mass, and amount and distribution of fat. Subcutaneous fat (the layer just beneath the skin) stores calories. It also produces a sugar-controlling hormone called adiponectin, critical to energy levels and insulin management. When we build up a little too much subcutaneous fat, these traits cause a snowball effect, creating even more weight gain around the midsection, thighs, and hips. As energy level drops, we are less enthusiastic about activities that burn calories and build lean muscle.

At one time a person had to be strong and fit to survive. That is not usually necessary for modern men and women. Stress, however, is a big threat.

Get the shape without the sweat with BTL Emsculpt treatment Emotional tension causes the body to produce excess cortisol, a hormone that causes blood sugar to drop, leaving you craving fatty and sweet foods. Hormonal fluctuations that occur with age can also affect body shape for both men and women.

Emsculpt body contouring aids in fat removal and stimulates increased muscles density, for a non-invasive butt lift, and a firm, flat abdomen.

Curvaceous buttocks

The same medical principles apply to remodeling the backside with Emsculpt. HIFEM pulses induce supramaximal contractions of all gluteal muscles, well beyond what can be attained through squats. The combination of hypertrophy, hyperplasia, and fat disruption lifts and shapes the buttocks.

What to expect from BTL Emsculpt treatment

  • This FDA-approved treatment is safe and beneficial for most people. Because Emsculpt is non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free, there are few counter-indications. Nearly anyone who wants a leaner, more toned body can be a good candidate, regardless of weight or body type.
  • Emsculpt is convenient and customized. A session takes about 30 minutes and no pre-treatment preparation is required. The clinician works with you to determine the most appropriate treatment schedule to meet your body-shaping goals. Generally, that involves at least four sessions, performed every two to three days.
  • You can feel it working, but treatment is not painful. Just relax and let technology do the work. You feel pulses of energy penetrating bodily tissues, and a muscle sensation similar to during a workout – without the sweat.
  • There is no downtime or recovery period. You can schedule an Emsculpt session in the middle of the day and get right back to your busy schedule, without any post-procedure protocol. You won’t even need to shower before returning to work or other activities.
  • Expect to feel like you had a terrific workout – because your muscles did! – for a day or two after treatment. Change begins to be noticeable within two to four weeks. With Emsculpt, improvement persists for several weeks after the last session, as deep muscle conversion and fat reduction continue.
  • Because the transformation is built upon a foundation of strong muscle, results are long-lasting. However, to maintain your Emsculpt contours, schedule periodic re-treatment.
BTL emsculpt for body

“Emsculpted” abs

Emsculpt technology uses a proprietary system called HIFEM. The applicator delivers High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy to the targeted area. HIFEM energy goes right through the skin, without harming it. Treatment induces intense, rapid muscle contractions, deeper and more powerful than can be achieved voluntarily with sit-up, crunches, or any other exercise.

Muscle tissue responds to these strong contractions with internal remodeling. Supramaximal muscle contractions trigger hypertrophy or an increase in muscle volume, as well as hyperplasia – a boost in the quantity of healthy muscle fibers. Meanwhile, treatment dramatically enhances cell metabolism, breaking down fat in the treated area more efficiently.

All you do is lie back and relax while Emsculpt induces changes that tone and define the midsection.

Workouts not producing the desired results? Why not try Emsculpt for a firmer, more sculpted body?

Body By BTL - Genuine Patients Testimonials - Monique
As this patient testimonial shows, Emsculpt has helped her achieve her goals of a firmer and better textured body, which she had been unable to achieve despite regular exercises. The machine works exactly where she wants it to and is pain-free. She’s proud of her Body by BTL.

I guess my main concern was just that I you know I do exercise a lot and I just I felt that even though with all the exercise that I was doing, I wasn’t, you know, accomplishing my main goal, mostly to maybe gain a little bit more firmness, you know, texture improvement. After using Emsculpt I definitely saw results. I was looking for an improvement over time it only gets better and keeps on improving. It targets exactly the specific areas that you’re looking for So, you know, it just feels like, almost like a massage, it kind of feels like a nice massage. There’s no pain, it doesn’t hurt at all. You’re laying on your stomach So, you can kind of take a nap and it’s nothing. For me, you know, as much as I work out, I still wasn’t seeing I guess what I really wanted to. So, you know I could do a million squats and it still wasn’t, it wasn’t, I wasn’t getting to where I wanted to be. So, this machine definitely kind of made me feel I was sore, you know, after every treatment I was definitely sore as if I had gone to the gym, as if I had worked out for an hour. So, I mean, you definitely feel it that it’s, it’s, working that there’s something going on there that you know you’re using those muscles it’s like immediately after you feel like you’ve done sit-ups you’ve done, you know, squats you’ve done a workout and it’s So, I definitely I would recommend it to any of my friends, this is a body by BTL

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.


You shave it. You wax it, you laser it. Heck, you might even dye it pink. Talking about armpit hair. Now some people are saying you can microwave it away once and for all. We’re revealing a new treatment right now and our procedure room. Take it away, Doctor Ashton.

Hi guys So, I’m back here with doctor sheila Nazarian, board certified plastic surgeon and our patient Aaron. You’re going to be demonstrating this new microwave procedure to hit axillary hair, but before we get to that, tell, tell me why this hair bothered you, Aaron? Because I mean, you’re blonde, you wouldn’t mind.

I’m a personal trainer. I spend 95% of my day in a tank top in the gym or in a bikini and shaving every day is such a pain. No one likes to do it. I tried laser hair removal. It doesn’t work. If you have blonde hair and darker skin. So, I heard about mirror smooth So, thought I’d give it a try.

And you said it’s your game, okay, So, doctor Nazarian,


Go ahead and lie back Aaron. So, as you start working tell us a little bit about this technology. Who’s a good candidate for it and how? Does it work?

Well, the beauty of this technology is that everyone is a good candidate. Any skin colour, any hair colour? I’ve actually had the procedure performed on myself, didn’t get any hyperpigmentation from it.

So, you numbed Aaron up before we started, right?

Arron’s been numbed already. We’ve placed a temporary tattoo which basically gives us little tick marks. It’s really paint by numbers at that point and we use the microwave technology of mirror smooth to remove not only 70% of her hair with one treatment, but also the sweat and odour glands are also eliminated. So, it’s basically a little suction and some you know heat is applied, but because she’s numb there’s no pain.

You feel anything?
Fine, just a little pull,


And So, how many treatments typically does it take to really get a good effect?

So, 80% of people really only need one treatment. You’re going to get an 82% reduction in the sweat and odour glands and a 70% reduction in the hair growth. Which, if you’ve ever had laser hair, you know you need multiple treatments in order to get anywhere close to 70%.

So, what’s the cost range for something like this?

This that’s a great question. So, the first treatment is around 2000 dollars, but it’s, but if you think about how many laser hair removal treatments to do. I mean, it really is a great benefit and also laser hair doesn’t remove the sweat and odour glands.

Nice, well, 2000 dollars, meaning that you could throw away all your razors for the rest of your life.


Never have to worry about sweating in your armpits again and being musty.

No more deodorant and think of all the money you spend on deodorant over a lifetime.

That’s true.

And it takes how long to do both pitch?

We usually schedule people for an hour at a time?
An hour!

So, can you imagine an hour and you’re done.
Oh my gosh,


Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.


The one done idea is very appealing.

Exactly, yeah.

Thanks for sharing that with us and thanks for showing us your armpits,

Thanks for having me

You’re welcome.
