BTL Announces the Return of National Emsculpt Week

A nationwide competition is underway for Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO providers that will give back to a charity focused on women's athletics.
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Announces the Return of National Emsculpt Week

BTL, a leading innovative aesthetic and medical solutions provider, announced today that it would host its 5th National Emsculpt Week from May 15th to May 21st. The week-long festivity celebrates patients and providers living their best lives, strengthening bodies, and encouraging healthy aging. In addition, a new BTL Cares campaign, tied to National Emsculpt Week, was launched to help provide equity in sports.

Emsculpt® and Emsculpt NEO® providers nationwide will unite efforts as they give back to a cause that closely aligns with the brand's mission and ethos. BTL will host a nationwide digital competition during the official week, in which prizes will be awarded to the winning practices (such as device applicators and a new Exion™ device with the radio frequency micro-needling applicator). In addition, providers will be encouraged to post a reel or photo of themself, a team member, or a patient with their Emsculpt device on social media or share how the treatment has impacted someone's health and wellness lifestyle. For every 1,000 North American #EmsculptWeek posts, BTL will donate $5,000 to the Women's Sports Foundation, a national organization that enables girls and women to reach their potential in life and sports.

"We're excited to host our 5th National Emsculpt Week and help more people achieve their form and function goals," said John Ferris, VP of Marketing of BTL. "We take pride in the fact that we can strengthen lives. Our efforts are further magnified knowing our BTL Cares initiative will assist girls and women in reaching their goals."

When launched in 2018, the Emsculpt therapy was the world's first and only treatment to use the HIFEM® procedure to build muscle and sculpt the body in a 30-minute session. Emsculpt NEO, launched in 2020, expanded upon its predecessor's capabilities by simultaneously delivering radiofrequency and the HIFEM procedure, making it a gold standard among body contouring devices. The result is more fat reduction and muscle growth in a single session. Clinical studies have shown that, on average, patients experience a 30% fat reduction and a 25% increase in muscle in the treated area. With over 2 million treatments administered to date, Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO continue to be gold-standard solutions in non-invasive body contouring therapies.

The ASLMS conference is renowned for assembling the brightest minds in laser medicine and surgery, and this year's event promises to be no exception. With over 12 new studies being presented, attendees will have the opportunity to discover the latest advances in BTL's technology and their applications in medicine and surgery.

In addition to showcasing its innovative product offerings, BTL will also be launching its latest product, EXION™, at the ASLMS conference. EXION™ is a multiplatform device featuring four applicators designed for highly sought-after aesthetic treatments, including micro-needling RF, a non-invasive face and body applicator for skin laxity, and the popular EMFEMME 360™ applicator for intimate health. The system leverages deep energy penetration and non-invasive hyaluronic acid production to deliver high-satisfaction treatments with minimal discomfort or downtime.

"The EXION™ platform has tremendous utility for our practice," said David Kent, M.D. from Skin Care Physicians of Georgia. "The ability to provide RF micro-needling at the depth greater than the extent of the needles due to the physics and technology is remarkable and the ability to increase hyaluronic acid content by radio frequency and targeted ultrasound is a game changer!" Nicole Hayre, MD from the Cosmetic Dermatology Center in Virginia elaborated further "The EXION™ has quickly become one of the most-used devices in my practice, especially for its face applicator which helps tighten laxity on both the face and neck. The EXION™'s superior results have left my other tightening devices collecting dust! Combined with RF micro-needling and a fantastic body applicator to reduce fat pockets, the EXION™ is an indispensable tool for any cosmetic practice!"

"We're thrilled to be attending the ASLMS conference and to have the opportunity to celebrate our 30th anniversary with such a distinguished group of industry professionals," said BTL's CEO, David Chmel. "We're also excited to be launching EXION™, our most recent product offering, and look forward to demonstrating how it can enhance patient and practice outcomes. In addition, EXION™ is a natural complement to EMFACE® as providers will have the ability to treat both the structure of the face and more superficial conditions."

EMFACE

BTL Takes a Stand Against Illegal and Counterfeit Aesthetic Devices, Leveraging IP Rights to Protect Consumers and Medical Providers

BTL Takes a Stand Against Illegal and Counterfeit Aesthetic Devices, Leveraging IP Rights to Protect Consumers and Medical Providers

BTL, a leading provider of innovative aesthetic and medical solutions, has announced a series of victories in its efforts to safeguard medical providers and consumers from counterfeit devices in the United States. Through legal action and the seizure of illegally imported devices at the border, BTL has taken a resolute stance against these illicit practices and the infringement of its intellectual property rights.

After years of research and development, BTL's EMSCULPT® and EMSCULPT NEO® devices have revolutionized the aesthetics and wellness space. "EMSCULPT NEO allows providers to offer a single treatment that builds muscle and burns fat, a first for the industry," said David Chmel, the CEO of BTL, North America. "Given BTL's success, it's no surprise that others want to imitate it."

BTL has filed court documents stating that defendants not only use and sell knockoff devices that infringe BTL's intellectual property rights but also falsely promise results based on clinical research for BTL devices.   With over 40 peer-reviewed publications, BTL's HIFEM brand quickly became one of the most researched aesthetic technologies. "BTL leads the industry in clinical studies and treatment efficacy, so our customers can confidently treat patients," pointed out Rohit Mishra, Director of Product Management. "No one should believe the false promises of imitator devices."

BTL collaborates with U.S Customs and Border Patrol to seize counterfeit devices at the border as part of its ongoing anti-counterfeiting program. Recently, CBP seized 20 devices that were illegally imported. Additionally, since last summer BTL has filed eight lawsuits against purchasers and distributors of infringing devices throughout the United States and successfully opposed three applications for infringing trademarks in 2022 alone.

BTL's efforts are yielding results, with several infringing product lines already taken off the market and thousands of infringing posts removed from social media. Moreover, in February a magistrate judge in Florida recommended an award of over $46,000 in attorney's fees to BTL on top of a $175,000 judgment for unlawful use of BTL's trademarks. "I'm delighted to see BTL taking action against counterfeiters that undermine the entire industry," said Lesley Clark-Loeser, M.D. "Knowing that these entities will not operate openly gives me the confidence to invest in BTL's innovative technology."

"BTL vigorously enforces its intellectual property rights, and we are continually exploring new ways to protect the medical industry from illegal medical devices," reiterated Dallin Glenn, BTL's General Counsel. "Anyone considering the purchase of such a device is on notice that BTL will not stand idly by." BTL holds registrations for numerous trademarks and copyrights related to its brands, and its devices are protected by an extensive portfolio of patents.

We have no doubt each of these students will impact our communities and make them a better place."

BTL AESTHETICS INTRODUCES A NEW EMSCULPT NEO EDGE™ APPLICATOR FOR THE LATERAL ABDOMEN

The latest launch further positions the body shaping therapy as the most expansive treating non-invasive contouring device on the market, capturing all major bodily regions.
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL AESTHETICS INTRODUCES A NEW EMSCULPT NEO EDGE™ APPLICATOR FOR THE LATERAL ABDOMEN

BTL, the authority in non-invasive body sculpting therapies, continues to build upon the success of its game-changing Emsculpt NEO treatment with the launch of the new Edge™ Applicators. What differentiates the Edge applicator is the coverage spread over the entire lateral abdomen. Shipping will commence in September 2022.

Sleekly designed to allow for a better contour of the curvy areas of the body, such as the lateral abdomen, the Edge applicator utilizes radiofrequency and HIFEMTM technology to simultaneously address fat deposits and muscle groups in the lateral abdomen region. Further, the new device extension tones the oblique muscles when treating the lateral abdomen, and many patients experience a significant improvement in their posture, core, and back discomfort. 

According to Ron Borsheim, Vice President of Product Development, “With the exciting new addition of the Edge applicator, BTL is continuing to raise the bar in the aesthetics industry and innovate for versatility by extending the sculpting power of the award-winning Emsculpt NEO therapy. The unrivaled device treats more key muscle groups than any other non-invasive treatment.” 

When launched in 2018, the Emsculpt therapy was the world’s first and only treatment to use HIFEM technology to build muscle and sculpt the body in a 30-minute session. Emsculpt NEO, launched in 2020, expanded upon its predecessor’s capabilities by simultaneously delivering heat and magnetic energy. The result is more fat reduction and more muscle growth than any single gold standard product. Clinical studies have shown that, on average, patients experience a 30% fat reduction and a 25% increase in muscle in the treated area. With over 1 million treatments administered to date, Emsculpt Classic and Emsculpt NEO continue to be gold-standard solutions in non-invasive body contouring therapies.

BTL AESTHETICS CELEBRATES THIRD ANNUAL NATIONAL EMSCULPT WEEK

A nationwide competition is underway for Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO providers that will give back to a charity focused on strengthening the future generation.

BTL AESTHETICS CELEBRATES THIRD ANNUAL NATIONAL EMSCULPT WEEK

BTL, the authority in non-invasive body sculpting therapies, is celebrating the return of National Emsculpt Week from May 15 through May 21, 2022. In addition, a new BTL Cares campaign, tied to National Emsculpt Week, was launched to partner with local communities and empower those in need.

Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO providers across the country will unite efforts as they give back to a cause that closely aligns with the brand's own mission and ethos. BTL will be hosting a nationwide digital competition during the official week, in which prizes will be awarded to the winning practices (such as device applicators and the choice of a new Emsculpt Classic, Emtone, Emsella, or Exilis Ultra). Practitioners will be encouraged to post a photo or video of themself, a team member, or a patient with their Emsculpt device on social media or share how the treatment has impacted someone's health and wellness lifestyle. For every 1,000 #EmsculptWeek posts, BTL will donate $5,000 to PHIT America – a national organization dedicated to providing physical activity programs to children and helping them afford to play sports.

"Last year's National Emsculpt Week was immensely rewarding for us, as we were able to treat first responders of the COVID-19 pandemic with complimentary Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments. The first responders' muscles were toned and strengthened, and in turn, they confidently returned to the front lines feeling like their best selves," said John Ferris, BTL Aesthetics Vice President of Marketing. "We're really excited to continue the tradition this year with our North American partners and give back to another cause that's similarly focused on strengthening – this time for the younger generation."

"We are super excited to have BTL Aesthetics as a PHIT America sponsor," stated Jim Baugh, Founder of PHIT America. "Our echoed missions to improve the health and wellness of Americans make this partnership a great alignment and through their donations PHIT America will ensure we have more kids that are active, fit, and healthy. With BTL's support, we will be able to help upwards of 1,200 more kids in schools across America develop more active and healthy lifestyles."

When launched in 2018, the Classic Emsculpt therapy was the world's first and only treatment to use HIFEM technology to build muscle and sculpt the body in a 30-minute session. Emsculpt NEO, which launched in 2020, expanded upon its predecessor's capabilities by simultaneously delivering heat and magnetic energy. The result is more fat reduction and more muscle growth than any single gold standard product. Clinical studies have shown that on average, patients experience in the treated area a 30% fat reduction and 25% increase in muscle. With over 1 million treatments administered to date, Classic Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO continue to be gold-standard solutions in non-invasive body contouring therapies.

USPTO Denies Challenges to BTL's Patents Related to Muscle Stimulation and Body Shaping Technology

USPTO Denies Challenges to BTL's Patents Related to Muscle Stimulation and Body Shaping Technology

BTL Industries, the manufacturer of the industry-leading Emsculpt® and Emsculpt NEO® body-contouring products, announced today that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the US Patent and Trademark Office denied eight petitions requesting institution of inter partes review of patents related to BTL's breakthrough magnetic technology for muscle toning and body shaping. The petitioner withdrew its remaining related petitions due to their substantial identity with the petitions denied.

With this recent conclusion of these proceedings, BTL successfully defended nine different patents across 28 Board proceedings, filed by two different petitioners over the last two years.

"In its recent decisions, the Board refused to initiate reviews of BTL's patents covering the muscle-toning technology incorporated in our popular Emsculpt® and Emsculpt NEO® products," explained David Chmel, VP of Operations. "The Board determined that the petitioner failed to meet its burden to show the unpatentability of the challenged claims."

"BTL spent years developing and commercializing the technology behind Emsculpt® and Emsculpt NEO®, which revolutionized the body contouring industry," said Ron Borsheim, VP of Business Development. "We have successfully proven the strength of our intellectual property rights protecting that technology, and we will relentlessly fight those who infringe our IP, especially entities who fraudulently try to import any knockoffs into the country."

About Emsculpt® and Emsculpt NEO®:
BTL's Emsculpt® has been a clear innovation leader in the muscle category, revolutionizing the non-invasive body shaping market. Utilizing its proprietary high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM®), the Emsculpt introduced an entirely new category of muscle toning and muscle strengthening to the aesthetic industry. The Emsculpt NEO® combined HIFEM® and radiofrequency technology to tone muscle and break down fat. For more details, go to www.bodybybtl.com.

The program awarded each of the five students a $15,000 grant towards tuition and college fees. The Scholar Draft was started to empower graduating high school and currently enrolled college student-athletes across the country to pursue higher education and strengthen their path to successful future careers. Entrants were asked to submit a 2-5 minute video sharing their aspirations and what confidence in their sport means to them, which was then reviewed by the BTL team and Andre Drummond himself. The program kicked off late last year on November 11 and officially closed the submission portal on Bold.org on February 1.

“The stories behind what fuels these young athletes’ confidence and dedication were all so inspiring,” said John Ferris, BTL Aesthetics Vice President of Marketing. “Through this grant, we hope the winners feel empowered and confident to move forward in their academic careers and truly invest in themselves – which is what BTL is truly all about at its core.” 

“It’s really important to me that we continue to break down barriers and provide opportunities for kids who need them. This program is all about empowering student-athletes and giving them a chance for a better future,” said Drummond. 

The five lucky winners are based across the country, and each plays varying sports. The scholarship winners are Alaysia Oakes (Lynchburg, VA), Sydney Stapf (West Bloomfield, MI), Charity McDowell (Indianapolis, IN), Emaria Banks (Loganville, GA), and Terry Burrel III (Cypress, TX).

BTL Makes History With One-Millionth Emsculpt Patient Milestone

BTL, the authority in non-invasive body sculpting therapies, announced today that its Emsculpt family of products is the fastest aesthetic device brand to reach one million treatments as indicated by Medical Insights.

With over 3,400 units installed globally, 30+ peer-reviewed publications on HIFEM technology, and over 25 billion media impressions, the Emsculpt Classic and Emsculpt NEO body sculpting treatments have made their marks as leaders in the aesthetic device industry. Globally, an average of 21 Emsculpt Classic treatments/unit and 39 Emsculpt NEO treatments/unit are administered each month.

According to John Ferris, BTL Aesthetics Vice President of US Marketing, "In just over three years, we have achieved what no other aesthetic device brand has done. We've accomplished this milestone with the support of all our stakeholders and the trust consumers put in the Emsculpt brand and providers. We didn't rely on virtual consumables to drive consumer awareness. The awareness was earned through studies and patient outcomes. Truly, this achievement is not only history in the making, but a testament to the efficacy and impact of Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO."

What's more? The doctors and partners who work with this technology agree…

"There is no wonder why Emsculpt is the fastest growing brand in aesthetics - excellent research, proven technology, valid data, and visible patient results. The bottom line is Emsculpt NEO works, and it works for our patients. Equally important, BTL provides good support." – Robert Singer, MD, Prime Plastic Surgery.

"Emsculpt has been a boom to my practice. It addresses my patients' concerns around toning the body and building muscle with a non-invasive modality in a quick manner without anesthesia or downtime. When it comes to improving body shape as well as offering a boost in confidence, Emsculpt products deliver." – Steven Dayan, MD, FACS, SD MD.

"From day one, Emsculpt NEO has impressed me, my staff, and my patients. It is no wonder that this device has grown to impact over 1 million people through treatments in such a short period of time. I anticipate that this machine and technology will revolutionize the aesthetics industry and serve to enhance the health and fitness of our nation." – Amanda Holden, MD, Holden Timeless Beauty.

"The Emsculpt NEO is a fantastic non-invasive fat melting and muscle building device that I have used in my cosmetic dermatology private practice successfully for years on all skin types and both sexes. My patients see consistent results, use the device, and come back in to have another area treated. Fortunately, neither myself nor my patients can get enough of this innovative fat-melting machine. I would strongly recommend it to any doctor that does not directly compete with me in my area. It is a winner." – Jeanine B. Downie, MD, FAAD, Image Dermatology PC.

Launched in 2018, Emsculpt is the world's first and only treatment to use HIFEM (high intensity-focused electromagnetic energy) to build muscle and sculpt the body in a 30-minute session. The most recently launched Emsculpt NEO, which debuted in November 2020, expanded its predecessor's capabilities by simultaneously delivering radiofrequency and HIFEM for fat reduction and muscle growth in a single session. Clinical studies have shown that, on average, patients experience a 30% fat reduction and 25% increase in muscle mass. In 2021, Emsculpt NEO has won over five awards, including the most recent SHAPE Best of Derm Picks award for Best Body Treatment, InStyle's Best Beauty Buys Awards for Best Body Sculpting Treatment and Dermascope's Aestheticians Choice Award for Favorite Body Sculpting Device.

BTL Reaches Lawsuit Settlement with Illinois Business Using Counterfeit EMSCULPT Device

BTL Industries, Inc. announced today that it has reached a settlement after pursuing legal action against Illinois business Beautiful by Pinky LLC d/b/a Pinky Promise Beauty, who it accused of unauthorized use of the EMSCULPT trademark to advertise and provide body sculpting treatments via a counterfeit or knockoff non-EMSCULPT device.

BTL Reaches Lawsuit Settlement with Illinois Business Using Counterfeit EMSCULPT Device

BTL Industries, Inc. announced today that it has reached a settlement after pursuing legal action against Illinois business Beautiful by Pinky LLC d/b/a Pinky Promise Beauty, who it accused of unauthorized use of the EMSCULPT trademark to advertise and provide body sculpting treatments via a counterfeit or knockoff non-EMSCULPT device.

The suit, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, sought to prevent Pinky Promise from infringing upon and using BTL's EMSCULPT trademark in its promotion of treatments administered by a counterfeit non-EMSCULPT device. The suit also sought monetary damages. In a consent judgment entered October 6, 2021 by the court, Pinky Promise agreed to cease all use of BTL's trademarks and copyrighted images in marketing its services, pay BTL monetary damages, and forfeit the counterfeit non-EMSCULPT device to BTL.

"We will continue to vigorously defend against counterfeit devices and the harm they represent to the body contouring market," stated Ron Borsheim, VP of Business Development. "We are also committed to protecting our intellectual property and the substantial investments our customers have made, and to preserve the leadership position we have developed in the aesthetic market over many years of effort."

Pinky Promise had purchased the counterfeit EMSCULPT device online from a foreign manufacturer. Although Pinky Promise did not manufacture the counterfeit device, Pinky Promise was still liable to BTL Industries, Inc. for advertising its treatments as being administered via an EMSCULPT device. A spokesperson for Pinky Promise cautioned spa service providers of being deceived by sellers of counterfeit and knockoff EMSCULPT devices, which are not FDA cleared. "I was incorrect to trust the authenticity and efficacy of a device sold by someone other than BTL. I wish I had done more research on this particular manufacturer before placing the order and advertising the product as an EMSCULPT device."

About Emsculpt
EMSCULPT uses high intensity focused electromagnetic energy technology (HIFEMŠ) to induce powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. BTL's proprietary protocols create supramaximal muscle contractions that force muscle tissue to adapt to such extreme conditions. The EMSCULPT went through many years of research and development before launching in the United States in 2018. BTL was the first to apply its patented high intensity focused electromagnetic energy technology to aesthetics, and since then Emsculpt has received numerous awards and industry recognition.

Lawsuit Alleges Illinois Based Clinic Misleads Consumers by Falsely Advertising Emsculpt Procedures

Lawsuit Alleges Illinois Based Clinic Misleads Consumers by Falsely Advertising Emsculpt Procedures

BTL Industries today filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against Pinky Promise Beauty for false advertising, unfair competition, false designation of origin, copyright and trademark infringement. BTL, along with its affiliates, is the inventor, developer, and manufacturer of the Emsculpt family of products for non-invasive muscle toning and fat reduction.

Pinky Promise promotes aesthetic procedures under BTL's federally registered trademarks and copyrighted materials, and misleads its customers into believing that the treatments offered by the clinic are genuine and patented treatments with the Emsculpt device. In the complaint, BTL alleges that Pinky Promise offers sham procedures using non FDA cleared products that may have been illegally imported into the US, and falsely markets these procedures to pass off as treatments using a genuine Emsculpt device, leading to customers' dissatisfaction and harm to the Emsculpt brand. This complaint is the first of several that will be filed against clinics that are falsely advertising non genuine Emsculpt treatments.  

The Emsculpt's HIFEM technology represents a breakthrough therapy to treat muscles non-invasively, and over the past three years it has widely become a therapy of choice for many customers seeking a non-invasive improvement of appearance. The technology has received several US FDA clearances, and it is covered by over 20 patents.

"We pride ourselves on designing such a powerful and popular technology," said Ron Borsheim, VP of Business Development. "With well over a dozen clinical studies, our Emsculpt family of products are appreciated by both physicians and their customers for their safety and efficacy. We call on patients not to be confused with fraudulent and misleading advertising and only look for genuine Emsculpt or Emsculpt NEO providers."

BTL Celebrates The Return Of National Emsculpt Week On May 16th

A nationwide week of awareness, celebration and giving back to COVID-19 frontline workers
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Celebrates The Return Of National Emsculpt Week On May 16th

BTL Aesthetics, the authority in non-invasive body sculpting therapies, is thrilled to announce the return of National Emsculpt Week. This holiday was added to the official National Day Calendar in 2019 and is scheduled to occur May 16 through May 22, 2021.

During the official week, BTL will engage providers while giving back to 250 first responders and healthcare workers.  This commitment was inspired by the desire to use Emsculpt treatments to reinvigorate those who stood and fought on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. BTL will also host a competition amongst Emsculpt providers which encourages them to engage with one another and their local communities. In total, more than $950k+ in prizes and compensated treatments will be provided.

"There is no better way to celebrate National Emsculpt Week than to give back to those who fought long and hard to keep us all healthy and safe during the pandemic," said John Ferris, Vice President of US Marketing. "We're beyond honored to work with our partners in order to help first responders rejuvenate their bodies while allowing them to continue serving our communities in need, through our BTL Cares program."

When launched, in 2018, the Emsculpt therapy was the world's first and only treatment to use HIFEM technology to build muscle and sculpt the body in a 30-minute session. The newly launched Emsculpt NEO, 2020, expanded upon its predecessor's capabilities by simultaneously delivering heat and magnetic energy. The result is more fat reduction and more muscle growth than any single gold standard product. Clinical studies have shown that on average, patients experience a 30% fat reduction and 25% increase in muscle mass. In addition, Emsculpt Neo users achieve the equivalent of 12-16 weeks of high intensity interval training (HIIT) in just 4 sessions.

For more information on the Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments and BTL Aesthetics, please visit www.bodybybtl.com or visit BTL Body Boutiques located in New York City (3 Great Jones St.) and in Beverly Hills (373 North Bedford Drive).

BTL Aesthetics Launches First Of Its Kind, Stand-Alone Brick And Mortar Location

BTL Aesthetics, the authority in non-invasive body contouring therapies, is thrilled to announce the launch of their first two brick and mortar storefronts – the BTL Body Boutique – located in the NoHo neighborhood of New York City as well as in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles. The BTL Body Boutique officially opened its New York doors today and its Beverly Hills location opens on May 6.

 

The first-of-its-kind location will act as an immersive storefront offering medical aesthetic professionals a one-stop shop. BTL representatives will be onsite to provide hands-on education and training, show product demonstrations, as well as sell BTL devices. These unique storefronts allow for direct interaction between BTL professionals and the medical aesthetics community in a safe, COVID-compliant environment. Connecting and fostering the larger BTL community is paramount for the brand, and these spaces have been designed to accommodate nights of beauty, where the medical community is encouraged and welcomed to host influencers and additional members of the media. This will be an opportunity for doctors to have a larger space to connect with patients, peers, and VIPS which is typically challenging in smaller clinic settings.

The showroom-like spaces features the brand's award-winning technologies, including EMSCULPT, EMSELLA, EMTONE, Exilis ULTRA, and the brand's latest innovation: the EMSCULPT NEO, a groundbreaking therapy that targets fat while building muscle using RF and HIFEM.

"Having a physical location that will house product and offer training and education will be an innovative resource to the industry," says Scott Mills, Vice President of Sales. "This tool will be invaluable in continuing to deepen the relationships with our partners."

"We always look to lead by breaking barriers and thinking out of the box, which is why we are proud to be the first aesthetics device brand to offer a space that covers every touchpoint from education to final sale," explains John Ferris, Vice President of US Marketing. "BTL Aesthetics strives to build and foster a community. For us it goes beyond the therapies we create.

BTL Celebrates Body Empowerment Through Song

BTL, who recently launched a breakthrough therapy in noninvasive body shaping called EMSCULPT NEO, announces its collaboration with Cedric Gervais for the release of the song NEO. The song, featuring Maggie Szabo, celebrates the brand's most recent innovation with an equally exciting tune.

EMSCULPT NEO is the first procedure to simultaneously eliminate fat cells and build muscles non-invasively, by combining specially designed radio frequency heating and high intensity focused electromagnetic waves into a single therapy.

The song evokes a sense of empowerment through its lyrics, which resonates with what EMSCULPT NEO can offer to those who use it. EMSCULPT NEO is a versatile solution for body sculpting which can treat multiple areas of the body. It provides inclusivity to many different body types; anyone up to a BMI of 35 can successfully experience EMSCULPT NEO.

The song empowers those listening, to dance, move, and take control of their body.  "My inspiration for creating this song," Gervais shared, "is as a DJ, I travel and perform all over the world, so my personal health is something that I take very seriously and work very hard at. I was excited to collaborate with EMSCULPT NEO. We've created a fun, energetic, upbeat record with strong confident lyrics for everyone to move to. I'm excited to launch the new single 'NEO' with Maggie Szabo." 

Cedric Gervais is a French DJ, record producer and actor residing in Miami Beach, Florida. In 2013, he produced a remix of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness", for which he won a Grammy Award.  Maggie Szabo, who leads vocals on the track, is a Canadian singer-songwriter who has been winning over audiences worldwide with her stunningly soulful vocals and empowering pop anthems. Hailing from small town Ontario, Szabo is now an accomplished musician living in Los Angeles and is using her music to conquer social injustice.

The song is available via Apple and YouTube music stores.

BTL Continues to Transform Non-Invasive Aesthetics by Launching the EMSCULPT NEO, The first 2-in-1 Solution for Body Contouring Treatments

BTL, the manufacturer behind the revolutionary EMSCULPT technology, is continuing to set the pace in aesthetics and non-invasive body shaping and contouring. Today, the brand announced the launch of EMSCULPT NEO, the first FDA-cleared procedure to eliminate fat cells non-invasively, by combining specially designed radio frequency heating and high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves into a single therapy.
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Continues to Transform Non-Invasive Aesthetics by Launching the EMSCULPT NEO, The first 2-in-1 Solution for Body Contouring Treatments

Normally, two standalone procedures are needed to treat both fat and muscle, but now with EMSCULPT NEO this single solution simultaneously melts fat while building muscles. As such, it is a faster, more economical and more efficacious solution than combining multiple procedures. EMSCULPT NEO is a versatile solution that provides inclusivity to most body types; patients up to a BMI of 35 can successfully experience this treatment and its results. 

"There are a great number of benefits that customers will reap after using EMSCULPT NEO. This is a result of us combining the technologies of radio frequency heating to burn fat, and high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves to build muscle," said Ron Borsheim, VP of Product Development of BTL. "Heating the muscles while burning fat allows for synergistic effects that result in more fat reduction and muscle growth than any single gold standard procedure. We are thrilled about the results of seven new clinical studies that show an average of 30% fat reduction and/or 25% increase in muscle mass."

For best results, four treatments are recommended over the course of four weeks.

"While clients are visiting offices for treatments, we are still living in uncertain times, so we know that treatments need to be quick, efficient and worth their time," said John Ferris, VP of US Marketing, of BTL. "EMSCULPT NEO ensures that the client's expectations are exceeded with the results, due to its 2-in-1 solution of burning fat and building muscle at once."

David J. Goldberg, MD, JD shared a similar sentiment when he stated, "It is less time consuming and offers more bang for the buck—with better results. This is the next dimension in body contouring."

"There was a rapid, very measurable, noticeable reduction in fat with an increase in the muscle thickness, and these changes are much better than what we would get alone," shared Carolyn Jacob, MD.

"There is little doubt that this pandemic has changed the way we all do business.  BTL recognized that as a company, we needed to find a way to help our physicians and partners in the industry.  As a true manufacturer of aesthetic technologies, BTL was able to quickly re-prioritize some of its manufacturing efforts to start building ventilators, respirators and masks to provide support and protection for those who need it most," said Ron Borsheim, VP of Product Development.

"All staff and docs gave these masks a 5-star rating for comfort, breathability, tight seal and ear relief.  Ready to order many more," shared Robert Weiss, MD.

Melanie Palm, MD, FACS stated "I got to tell you, it's a real nice edge up in terms of comfort compared to some of the K95 and N95 respirators. Carolyn Jacob, MD further elaborated "They are more comfortable than any other mask we have been wearing."

BTL Industries, Inc.

BTL concurrently filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Federal District Court in the District of Delaware against Allergan and Zimmer on the same matter.

The U.S. International Trade Commission is an independent, quasi-judicial federal agency with broad investigative responsibilities on matters that affect trade and commerce, including intellectual property infringement.

"We have asked the ITC to determine whether Cooltone and Coolsculpting products infringe BTL's patents and, if they are found to be infringing, to issue an exclusion order barring importation of Cooltone and Coolsculpting products into the U.S., as well as issuing a cease-and-desist order prohibiting Allergan and Zimmer from selling their infringing products and their components in the American market space," said Ron Borsheim, VP of Business Development.

BTL's ITC complaint and Delaware lawsuit follows a lawsuit that BTL filed with the U.S. District Court in Delaware in December 2019 on similar matters.

BTL Continues to Transform Non-Invasive Aesthetics by Launching the EMSELLA® applicator with up to 2.5 Tesla (T) for the EMSCULPT® platform.

BTL, the manufacturer behind the revolutionary EMSCULPT technology, is continuing to set-the-pace in aesthetics and non-invasive body shaping and contouring. Today, the brand announced the launch of the new EMSELLA applicator with up to 2.5 Tesla (T) to treat all forms of male and female urinary incontinence. Building upon the existing clearances for the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms and calves, the new EMSELLA applicator makes EMSCULPT the first system to treat the whole core; and provide patients with a holistic solution to strengthening their pelvic floor.

“Since launching EMSCULPT in 2018, we’ve seen growing demand from physicians and patients to combine our two innovative and beloved treatments for a complete solution for the whole core,” shared John Ferris, VP of US Marketing, of BTL. “Patients coming for muscle toning are often ideal candidates for pelvic floor treatment.”

The EMSELLA applicator is specially designed to restore neuromuscular control and rehabilitation of weak pelvic muscles. “A 2007 study in The Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy concluded over 65% of women who suffer from abdominal separation have a pelvic floor disorder, so we know that there was a need to provide a solution for the whole core,” shared Carolyn Delucia, M.D.

“We can safely infer that using EMSCULPT to treat abdominal separation will complement the EMSELLA treatment. What this all means is that we can take a full-scale surgical mommy makeover, which costs a lot and involve a fair amount of risk, and reduce much of it to two non-invasive treatments that will be much less risky and much less expensive,” said Dr. Delucia. “In addition, the patients who underwent Core to Floor therapy, showed a significant increase in quality of life and often reverted back to activities, like exercising, that that they had forgone prior to treatment.”

For the best results, four 28-minute non-invasive treatments over the course of two weeks are recommended. The EMSCULPT platform delivers the highest amount energy in the treatment area resulting in the strongest muscle contractions induced by non-invasive device on the market.3 For more information on all EMSCULPT applicators and to find a physician near you, please visit www.bodybybtl.com

BTL Files Lawsuit against Allergan for False Advertising and Unfair Competition

The lawsuit alleges a wide-ranging false and misleading advertising campaign launched by Allergan relating to BTL's industry-leading EMSCULPT device for non-invasive muscle toning and body shaping.
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Files Lawsuit against Allergan for False Advertising and Unfair Competition

BTL Industries, Inc. ("BTL") today announced it has filed a lawsuit against Allergan plc, Allergan USA, Inc., Allergan, Inc., and Zeltiq Aesthetics, Inc. The lawsuit alleges a wide-ranging false and misleading advertising campaign launched by Allergan relating to BTL's industry-leading EMSCULPT device for non-invasive muscle toning and body shaping.

According to the lawsuit, Allergan's marketing, sales materials, and social media advertising feature numerous deceptive comparisons of Allergan's CoolTone product to the EMSCULPT, and misrepresent Allergan's product as having performance advantages compared to EMSCULPT. 

"While BTL welcomes fair competition and competitive advertising, it was the egregious and misleading nature of their marketing that compelled us to file this lawsuit," said Filip Donner, Director of BTL Industries. "Long before bringing their product to the market, Allergan knowingly made false, deceptive, and misleading descriptions of fact concerning the nature, characteristics, and qualities of the EMSCULPT device as compared to their product."

In particular, Allergan's comparisons about magnetic intensity are false on their face. The tests presented in the lawsuit show that Allergan's product and BTL's EMSCULPT have on average substantially equivalent magnetic intensity at the point of patient contact. Further, Allergan's statements about magnetic intensity are misleading when they falsely imply that magnetic intensity is a measure of power, or efficacy.

"Alone, magnetic intensity is not an accurate measure of the amount of induced electrical current delivered to the tissue by the magnetic field during therapy. The higher the induced electrical current, the stronger the muscle contraction," explained Ron Borsheim, VP – Business Development.

Testing presented in the lawsuit shows that BTL's EMSCULPT device, when averaging abdomen, buttocks and leg therapies, induces up to 56% more electrical current into the target tissue than Allergan's product.

"We owe it to our customers and employees to hold Allergan accountable for attempting to gain an unfair competitive advantage through these misleading practices," added Ron Borsheim.

This lawsuit, filed in the US District Court for the District of Delaware, is the latest filing with the same court against Allergan. The previous lawsuit asserts that the Cooltone device, manufactured by Zimmer for Allergan, infringes on BTL's United States patents. Today's lawsuit seeks a court order halting Allergan's false and misleading advertising, and requests corrective marketing and advertising, damages, and attorneys' fees.

About Emsculpt:

EMSCULPT uses high intensity focused electromagnetic energy technology (HIFEM®) to induce powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. BTL's proprietary protocols create supramaximal muscle contractions that force muscle tissue to adapt to such extreme conditions. The EMSCULPT went through many years of research and development before launching in the United States in 2018. BTL was the first to apply its patented high intensity focused electromagnetic energy technology to aesthetics, and since then Emsculpt has received numerous awards and industry recognition.

BTL Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit against Allergan and Zimmer related to Emsculpt

The lawsuit is intended to protect BTL’s significant investment in its Emsculpt and HIFEM technology designed for non-invasive muscle toning
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit against Allergan and Zimmer related to Emsculpt

BTL Aesthetics (“BTL”), a leading manufacturer of non-invasive technologies for body shaping, announced today that its US affiliate has filed a lawsuit against Allergan plc, Ireland and its affiliates, and Zimmer MedizinSysteme GmbH, Germany, and its affiliate, in the U.S. Federal District Court for the District of Delaware. 

The lawsuit asserts that the Cooltone device, manufactured by Zimmer for Allergan, infringes on BTL’s United States patents. The lawsuit further asserts that Allergan’s Coolsculpting, when used before, or after the Cooltone therapy, infringes on BTL’s United States patent for the therapeutic application of the two technologies. 

BTL’s Emsculpt has been a clear innovation leader in the muscle category, revolutionizing the non-invasive body shaping market. Utilizing proprietary HIFEM technology, Emsculpt introduced an entirely new category of muscle strengthening technology to aesthetics that goes beyond waist line reduction and the elimination of fat cells. 

“The intellectual property behind Emsculpt was developed both for and with the aesthetic physician community in mind,” said Filip Donner, Director of BTL. “We shall vigorously defend our intellectual property to protect the substantial investments our customers have made, and to preserve the leadership position we have developed over many years of effort. This lawsuit is the first domino to fall as we enforce our patents and other intellectual property rights in the United States and in other jurisdictions.“ 

BTL is seeking an injunction and monetary damages. The lawsuit is intended to prevent Allergan from importing and selling Cooltone systems in the United States, and to prevent Allergan from marketing Cooltone alone or in conjunction with their Coolsculpting therapy.

BTL Continues to Revolutionize Non-Invasive Aesthetics and Sets the Tone for the Future of Cellulite Treatment

Industry leaders unveil groundbreaking new treatment to address all major contributing factors to cellulite
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Continues to Revolutionize Non-Invasive Aesthetics and Sets the Tone for the Future of Cellulite Treatment

BTL, the manufacturer behind the game changing EMSCULPT treatment, further transforms existing aesthetic protocols with its latest technology—EMTONE. Unveiled today, EMTONE raises the bar in the treatment of cellulite by being the first treatment to apply radio frequency and targeted pressure energy simultaneously. This innovative combination allows the treatment to address all major contributing factors to cellulite, making it the first and only effective solution for cellulite without any downtime.

“BTL is dedicated to ongoing research and innovation in order to continually bring new, effective solutions to our physician partners and patients,” shared John Ferris, VP of Marketing for BTL. “With the launch of EMSCULPT last year, we shifted the body shaping paradigm entirely as the first to address muscle tone and definition. With the introduction of EMTONE, we’re excited to do the same for the treatment of cellulite, further solidifying the brand’s leadership position within the industry.”

The first of its kind energy combination—thermal monopolar radio frequency and mechanical targeted pressure energy— is what sets EMTONE apart from similar treatments available. This unrivaled combination has a profound effect on connective tissues that lead to cellulite, resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin to effectively address all major contributing factors to cellulite and smooth the appearance of dimpling. EMTONE can also be used on all body types with no BMI or skin color restrictions.

“Approximately 90% of women have some form of cellulite, and it’s something that numerous patients bring up to me on a daily basis,” shared Dr. Dendy Engelman, board certified dermatologist. “Up until now the treatment of cellulite has been extremely challenging as there hasn’t been an effective solution, or one without downtime. I’m thrilled to now have EMTONE to offer as it fills the existing void in cellulite treatments.”

Clinical studies demonstrate that EMTONE is 64% more effective than standalone cellulite treatments for building elastin, and 59% more effective for building collagen. Additionally, EMTONE was shown to be 50% faster than standalone therapies, with a 90% rate of patient satisfaction.

“EMTONE sets an entirely new standard for the treatment of cellulite,” says Dr. Paul Jarrad Frank, Celebrity Cosmetic Dermatologist and Founder of PFRANKMD & Skin Salon. “There has never been a non-invasive cellulite treatment that has shown such high levels of patient satisfaction within the industry. Not only do patients experience better results but they also see results faster than existing protocols.” added Dr. Frank.

For best results, most patients undergo 4 treatments, scheduled once or twice a week. A treatment typically takes about 20 minutes depending on the treated area. For more information on EMTONE and to find a physician near you, please visit www.bodybybtl.com.

BTL Continues to Revolutionize Non- Invasive Aesthetics by Extending the Sculpting Power of EMSCULPT® to the Arms and Legs

EMSCULPT introduces Small Contour Applicators with the brand's latest FDA-clearance

BTL Continues to Revolutionize Non- Invasive Aesthetics by Extending the Sculpting Power of EMSCULPT® to the Arms and Legs

BTL, the manufacturer behind the game-changing EMSCULPT technology, is continuing to raise the bar in aesthetics and non-invasive body shaping. Today, the brand announced its latest FDA clearance for EMSCULPT, which is now FDA cleared to strengthen, firm and tone the arms and calves with the newly unveiled Small Contour Applicators. Building upon the existing clearances for the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, the new Small Contour Applicator brings the unrivaled EMSCULPT results to even more key muscle groups, making it the ONLY non-invasive treatment that is FDA cleared to tone and strengthen the arms and calves as well.

"Since launching EMSCULPT last year, we've seen growing demand from physicians and patients to bring the technology to other tough to target areas of the body," shared John Ferris, VP of US Marketing, of BTL. "Given our unique HIFEM procedures, we knew 'one applicator would not fit all' so we're excited to unveil the Small Contour Applicator in order to deliver targeted treatment for smaller muscle groups including the arms and calves."

The Small Contour Applicator is specially designed to target these smaller muscle groups via a unique, ergonomic design and adjusted energy field. "The amount of research that went into the development of the new applicator is apparent by the specificity used to address the unique needs of these muscle groups," shared Dr. Minni Saluja, Cosmetic Surgeon who conducted clinical trials for the brand. "The halfpipe design in combination with the higher energy field –which delivers a higher energy per cm –allows us to directly target these smaller areas while preventing the energy from stimulating antagonist muscles for improved outcomes and patient comfort."

"We conducted extensive trials with the Small Contour Applicator and utilized ultrasound and MRI technology to demonstrate its effectiveness for treating these new areas of the body," shared Dr. Bruce Katz, Director of the JUVA Skin & Laser Center in NY and Clinical Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai Hospital, who conducted clinical trials for the brand. "We found the bicep and tricep muscles showed an increase in muscle mass two weeks following the fourth treatment, as well as an overall fat reduction in the arms. The treatment also increased volumetric muscle mass in the calves. These findings are particularly noteworthy as up until now there hasn't been an effective non-invasive solution to address these areas of the body," added Dr. Katz.

Four 20-minute treatments, over the course of two weeks, represent the shortest procedure currently available for the non-invasive muscle strengthening. The new Small Contour Applicator and the EMSCULPT Large Applicator possess the highest intensity delivering the highest amount energy in the treatment area.

BTL Announces Partnership with Drew Barrymore in Support of Groundbreaking EMSCULPT Treatment

/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Announces Partnership with Drew Barrymore in Support of Groundbreaking EMSCULPT Treatment

BTL, leaders in non-invasive aesthetics, today announced a partnership with actress and lifestyle mogul, Drew Barrymore, to promote EMSCULPT® – the first and only non-invasive treatment to go beyond the elimination of fat cells to strengthen and define muscles. Barrymore is revealing that she incorporated the innovative technology into her wellness and fitness regimen to give her already healthy lifestyle an extra boost and take her workouts to the next level.

Barrymore is someone who admits that she always needs to put the "work" into her workouts. Her desired results don't just happen naturally, particularly in building up her core strength.

"After having my daughters my body changed and my core strength was turned upside down," Barrymore reveals. "EMSCULPT was ideal for me as it complemented my current routine which consists of a mix of dance cardio and Pilates to target my core muscles specifically. A little over a month post-treatment, I can visibly see the results and can tell a difference in my workouts – I feel that my core is much more engaged, improving my workouts and motivating me to push myself even further," added Barrymore.   

Barrymore is the ideal partner for EMSCULPT as she's known for her healthy lifestyle and commitment to wellness, in addition to empowering others to be their most confident selves. FDA-cleared for the strengthening and toning of abdominal muscles (along with the buttocks and most recently arms and legs), EMSCULPT supports a regimented fitness routine.  Utilizing patented HIFEM® magnetic field energy, it revolutionized the aesthetics industry with its launch last year. The unique technology induces approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions, which cannot be achieved voluntarily, to help target those hard-to-tone areas.

"We're thrilled to have Drew Barrymore on board as EMSCULPT's first celebrity ambassador," shared John Ferris, VP of US Marketing, of BTL, the company manufacturing the product. "Drew Barrymore embodies our mission of boosting patients' strength and confidence. Connecting her voice to our brand will help to further educate consumers and physicians about the benefits of EMSCULPT."

Through her partnership with EMSCULPT, Barrymore will share her treatment experience and results with media and on her social media channels. We encourage you to follow along in her journey online.

BTL Announces the First Ever National EMSCULPT Week

The game changing treatment will be celebrated with a dedicated week of in-office activities and promotions
/PRNEWSWIRE/

BTL Announces the First Ever National EMSCULPT Week

BTL, leaders in non-invasive aesthetics, announced today that the week of May 20 has been officially proclaimed "National EMSCULPT Week." The revolutionary treatment transformed the aesthetics industry with its launch last year as the first and only non-invasive treatment to go beyond the elimination of fat cells to strengthen and define muscles. A recent survey found that 92% of NewBeauty readers claim feeling strong and powerful are the most important when it comes to body image. EMSCULPT addresses this sentiment by targeting muscles in tough to tone areas.

National EMSCULPT Week was just registered with the National Day Calendar organization, giving physician partners nationwide a campaign to further drive momentum around the innovative treatment. The program is ideally timed a week prior to the official kick off to summer. During this time, the brand will be providing practices with a variety of tools to promote timely trial and attract new patients. Keeping in mind that 88% of women are interested in a treatment that could help sculpt their body according to a NewBeauty study, National EMSCULPT Week provides the opportunity for consumers to get excited about something they've always wanted. In celebration of the official week, participating EMSCULPT practices will be hosting various promotions for EMSCULPT treatments and challenging patients to take their current fitness regimen to the next level via in-office events where patients can bring a friend to experience the benefits of EMSCULPT together.

"We're thrilled for EMSCULPT to be recognized with its very own week – we created a paradigm shift with this new non-invasive category; it is truly an honor as the National Day Calendar organization approves just 20 national holidays a year, and receives over 30,000 applications," said John Ferris, VP of US Marketing, of BTL, the company manufacturing the product. "This is a testament to the first-of-its-kind technology, and we're thrilled to provide our partners with an opportunity to grow their practice with EMSCULPT," added Ferris.

Utilizing HIFEM technology, EMSCULPT introduced an entirely new technology to aesthetics that goes beyond waistline reduction and elimination of fat cells to strengthen muscles. The unique technology induces approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per 30 minute session and is the ONLY technology that strengthens and defines hard to target areas including the abdominals and buttocks, and most recently arms and legs with the introduction of the small applicator.

In addition to launching the small applicator, BTL will also highlight new clinical findings demonstrating long term EMSCULPT results with six-month and one-year data. Research will also be unveiled showcasing the impressive results for the new applications.

BTL Continues To Make Waves With Its Revolutionary HIFEM® Technology

BTL, leader in non-invasive aesthetics, continues to take the aesthetics industry by storm. As the first to apply HIFEM® technology to aesthetics and women's health categories with the launch of EMSCULPT and BTL EMSELLA last year, the brand transformed treatment protocols within both categories. The industry buzz shows no signs of slowing down. The brand today announced two new accolades from NewBeauty and Harper's Bazaar magazines.

Both EMSCULPT and BTL EMSELLA received a NewBeauty Innovation Award, as featured in the Spring issue, on-stands today. The publication's "Innovation Award" is reserved only for the best-of-the-best products and technologies, deemed truly innovative by industry professionals and the editorial staff. Only eleven "Innovation" honors were awarded this year, with BTL earning two of the coveted spots on the list. Hailed as a treatment that captured the attention of both beauty enthusiasts and aesthetic professionals alike, EMSCULPT is touted for its impressive, dual results in clinical studies—having built muscle mass by 16% and decreased fat by 19% over the course of four sessions. BTL EMSELLA was recognized as the "kegel throne" and praised for its cutting-edge, completely non-invasive technology that promotes bladder control to help reduce, and even stop, urinary incontinence.

EMSCULPT was also named a 2019 Harper's Bazaar Anti-Aging Award Winner. The treatment earned the distinction of "Best Body Firming Treatment" within the "Best Pro Treatment" category as voted by the Harper's Bazaar editorial team, top dermatologists and influencers. EMSCULPT was showcased for its groundbreaking approach to body shaping—simultaneously addressing muscle and fat—to achieve more defined abdominals and lifted buttocks.  

"We're thrilled to receive these awards from such highly regarded publications. These outlets are always on the pulse of the latest technologies and responsible for shaping aesthetic trends so it's an honor for our innovation to be recognized by their editorial teams. This recognition further validates our authority within the space and impact our patented HIFEM technology has made," shared John Ferris, VP of Marketing at BTL.

Utilizing proprietary HIFEM® technology, protected by numerous US and foreign patents with more pending, EMSCULPT and BTL EMSELLA introduced an entirely new technology to non-invasive treatments.  Both treatmentstarget muscles to stimulate supramaximal muscle contractions, a contraction that cannot be achieved voluntarily, within the area of treatments. EMSCULPT, which strengthens and defines abdominal muscles and lifts the buttocks, is the first and only non-invasive treatment to go beyond elimination of fat cells. The treatment induces approximately20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions per 30 minute session. While BTL EMSELLA—a completely non-invasive solution for the treatment of all three forms of urinary incontinence with no downtime—treats the entire pelvic floor region at once to induce the equivalent of 11,000 kegels per session, all while the patient simply sits in a chair like device.

Landmark Study Evaluates Long-Term Results of BTL Vanquish Technology Four Years Post-Treatment

Body-Shaping Leader is Clinically Shown to Deliver Lasting Abdominal Circumferential Reduction

Landmark Study Evaluates Long-Term Results of BTL Vanquish Technology Four Years Post-Treatment

BTL Aesthetics, leader in non-invasive aesthetic treatments, is excited to share the findings of a newly published study that boasts long lasting benefits of noninvasive, radiofrequency (RF) energy—as used in the breakthrough BTL Vanquish and Vanquish ME devices—to achieve abdominal circumferential reduction. Evaluating results four years post-treatment, this study is a first-of-its-kind for the non-invasive space as it goes beyond the standard evaluation time period, further demonstrating the technology's ability to help impart a permanent reduction of fat within the area of treatment. 

While a rapidly growing category, non-invasive body shaping treatments are still fairly new to the market, making physicians and consumers alike eager for more long-term data. Until now, there has been very little scientific evidence published to document how fat reduction achieved through noninvasive RF treatment evolves over time, making the release of this four-year data significant for both BTL Aesthetics and the industry at large. 

"We're thrilled to have this four-year follow-up data, as most clinical studies only incorporate evaluations 3-12 months following the procedure, and has remained the industry standard for post-treatment assessment." shares Tomas Boleslavsky of BTL Aesthetics. "The use of BTL Vanquish technology within this study further speaks to the brand's leadership within the industry, as well as its impressive and sustainable treatment results."

This study evaluated 13 individuals who received the BTL Vanquish treatment four years (+60 days) prior, utilizing the same measurement markers as those at the 1-month follow-up visit in the original Journal of Drugs and Dermatology study. The study findings prove that patients preserved an average 75.2% of the original body contouring effect four years post treatment series as demonstrated by abdominal circumferential reduction. While the treatments cannot prevent any future weight gains, the data is significant as it boasts sustained treatment results and no long-term side effects.

"This is a milestone study for the industry, as evidence of how the results evolve over longer periods of time hadn't been studied" shared Dr. Klaus Fritz. "While we [physicians] have always known the effects of radiofrequency induced apoptosis are permanent, this study's findings clinically demonstrate just that, along with the fact that long term results of BTL Vanquish treatments can be sustained."

The treatment was also recently shown, in a peer-review study published in the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology, that it treats more fat faster—and over a much larger area—than its competitors on the market, and without pain or bruising. BTL Vanquish and BTL Vanquish ME are the only radiofrequency devices on the US Aesthetic market that allow for non-contact, hands-free treatment of subcutaneous fat. Committed to innovation, the company's second-generation BTL Vanquish ME device was also recently proven—in a recent published clinical study—to provide more consistent outcomes and to reduce abdominal fat thickness by 53% more than its predecessor.

Dedicated to Innovation: Next-Generation Vanquish ME Device from BTL Aesthetics Reduces 53% More Fat Than its Predecessor

BTL Aesthetics today announced the release of a clinical evaluation proving that its BTL Vanquish ME device was effectively redesigned for more efficient, predictable and homogenous energy delivery to the targeted tissue. The result: Significantly better outcomes in abdominal fat thickness reduction, 53% higher, with BTL Vanquish ME versus BTL Vanquish.

"We are committed to providing our physician network and their patients with the most highly-advanced devices on the market," said Tomas Boleslavsky, Director of Clinical at BTL Aesthetics. "These clinical results, showing that our smartly-designed, next-generation device outperformed its predecessor, really speak to BTL Aesthetics' innovative approach and entrepreneurial spirit."

Background:

BTL Vanquish launched in 2013, was a breakthrough device for noninvasive fat reduction. Not stopping there, BTL Aesthetics' commitment to an innovative approach quickly resulted in the development of BTL Vanquish ME (Maximum Energy), which debuted in 2015. BTL Vanquish ME is a physician-favored fat reduction treatment that is FDA-cleared for the circumferential reduction of the abdomen and thighs. The treatment was also recently shown, in a peer-review study published in the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology, that it treats more fat faster—and over a much larger area—than its competitors on the market. BTL Vanquish and BTL Vanquish ME are the only radiofrequency devices on the US Aesthetic market that allow for non-contact, hands-free treatment of subcutaneous fat.

About the Clinical Study:

The multi-center study, conducted by Drs. Nicole Hayre, Peter Jenkin and Melanie Palm, sought to compare clinical outcomes of a noninvasive selective radiofrequency (RF) field device (BTL Vanquish ME) with its predecessor (BTL Vanquish). A total of 36 subjects with BMIs under 30 but above 24, were randomly assigned to be treated in Group A (BTL Vanquish ME) or Group B (Vanquish) to obtain a side-by-side comparison of the devices' efficacies. Each subject received four, once-weekly, 45-minute treatments with their group's determined device. Measurements of subjects' abdominal fat were taken prior to the first treatment and again four weeks after finishing the final treatment. Subjects had also been instructed to maintain their usual diet and lifestyle throughout the duration of the study.

Results

Abdominal fat layer thickness reduction at 30 days post treatment was the primary outcome measurement in the study as measured by ultrasound. The degree in fat layer thickness between Group A and B was statistically significant (p<0.008), and data showed that fat for Group A (BTL Vanquish ME) and Group B (BTL Vanquish) was reduced by 29.5% and 15.2%, respectively. That represents a 53% higher reduction of abdominal fat layer thickness with Group A than for those in Group B. Every subject in the study showed a reduction in the abdominal fat layer thickness.

-       Group A: Reduction ranged from 2.0 to 6.6 mm (average of 4.17 ±1.42 mm)
-       Group B: Reduction ranged from .07 to 10.4 mm (average of 2.72 ± 2.21 mm)

The standard deviation of ultrasound measurements in Groups A and B were 1.42 mm and 2.21 mm, respectively—and this reduction in standard deviation of fat reduction measurements in Group A vs Group B is evidence that the BTL Vanquish ME provides more consistent performance.

Finally, using the measured reduction in fat layer thickness and the treatment surface area of the applicator (2100 cm2or 325.5 square inches), a reduction of 0.876 liter (0.23 liquid gallon) and 0.571 liter (0.15 liquid gallon) of fat were calculated for Groups A and B, respectively.  (Volume lost = fat layer thickness reduction x effective area or spot size of the applicator (2100 cm2; 325.5 square inches).  This assumes an homogenous response to treatment.

Further speaking to its uniqueness in the market, the BTL Vanquish ME device holds three patents: One, granted in 2013, protects the non-contact method of adipose tissue treatment. The second, issued in September 2016, is for the feedback power control device for non-invasive treatment of skin and human tissue. The third—issued in October—refers to a new method for treating subcutaneous tissue that positions one or more applicators adjacent to the skin of a patient, but not touching the skin or in need of continual movement by the applicator. These applicators, which transmit electromagnetic energy into the skin where it can be used for subcutaneous tissue treatment, may also be used for tightening the skin and for remodeling collagen tissue in the subcutaneous tissue. Additionally, airflow can be provided between the applicator and the skin by positioning an air mover (attached or made part of the applicator) close to the skin.

BTL Vanquish ME treatments are available through a network of licensed physicians and medically supervised spas. Visit www.btlvanquishme.com to find a physician for treatment.

"This clearance, which was secured in part thanks to extensive clinical research, is truly a further testament to BTL Vanquish ME's superior and consistent results."

Harnessing the power of high-frequency, Selective RF energy, BTL Vanquish ME induces death of fat cells through apoptosis, and the body flushes fat cells out of the body naturally to help slim the abs, belly, love handles, and now thighs. Boasting the largest spot size in the industry, the unique contactless panel allows patients to treat a broad area at once, resulting in more even results with no lines of demarcation. Similarly to treatment of the abdomen, which covers the core from flank-to-flank, the Flex Applicator—specially designed to treat and adjust to the thighs—simultaneously slims both the inner/outer thighs and saddle bags. This allows for enhanced patient outcomes, shorter treatment times and elimination of additional consumable costs for the physician—a sharp contrast to similar systems which focus solely on smaller areas or specific fat deposits, making BTL Vanquish ME a more affordable treatment option.

"The upper legs continue to be a common area of complaint for my patient base, with many inquiring about procedures to help slim, shape, and tone thighs," says Dr. Annie Chiu, Board Certified Dermatologist and founder of The Derm Institute in Redondo Beach, CA. "With the BTL Vanquish ME Flex Applicator at my practice, we have been able to treat both the inner and outer thigh in each session at the same time, giving patients a circumferential reduction in their thighs and a slimmer leg appearance," added Chiu.

This newest distinction further supports previous studies published in peer-reviewed journals including Dermatologic Therapy and the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology both of which highlight the effectiveness of BTL Aesthetics' patented radio frequency technology to reduce the circumference of thighs. In clinical studies, over 80% of subjects experienced a statistically high and significant circumferential reduction with four, 30-minute treatment sessions per leg, delivered once a week over a four week period. BTL Vanquish ME treatments are available through a network of licensed physicians and medically supervised spas.

Trimmed, Tightened and Toned: BTL Aesthetics Unveils New Innovations

BTL Aesthetics, the manufacturers of BTL Vanquish ME – an award-winning, non-invasive fat reduction treatment – today announced the introduction of three new products that take body shaping and skin toning to the next level.

"As a leader in aesthetics innovation, we're always looking for new ways to help our physician partners achieve optimal results," said Jan Zarsky, Director of North America for BTL Aesthetics. "The addition of BTL Exilis ULTRA – the only system with simultaneous delivery of radio frequency and ultrasound - helps raise the bar in combination therapy. BTL Cellutone, when used in conjunction with BTL Vanquish ME, delivers what physicians are referring to as the "shock and awe" affect, as the two-part treatment is helping to enhance patient's experience, while achieving consistent and fast results," added Zarsky.

BTL Exilis ULTRA

Taking the company's widely used body shaping and skin rejuvenating treatment, Exilis, to the next level; BTL Exilis ULTRA is the first non-invasive aesthetic device to simultaneously deliver ultrasound and radio frequency energy. The combination of energies help to optimize the patient's experience, as therapeutic temperature can be reached faster than either modality alone. Additionally the design of the applicator is unique in the fact it has a cooling tip to allow physicians to adjust the level of penetration for enhanced results, as well as make the treatment extremely versatile.

"I've been very impressed by BTL Exilis ULTRA as it allows me to utilize these dual modalities (radio frequency and ultrasound) in new ways," said Dr. Suneel Chilukuri, Cosmetic and Dermatologic Surgeon in Houston, TX. "In addition to seeing great results on the arms and neck, which are challenging areas to treat, I'm also utilizing it to rejuvenate lips. In fact, patients have seen such positive results, that they're looking to come in sooner to have additional areas treated." added Chilukuri.

BTL Cellutone

Utilizing targeted vibrations, BTL Cellutone can be used as a stand-alone device or in combination with other aesthetic therapies such as non-invasive fat reduction and tightening treatments. BTL Vanquish ME utilizes selective radio frequency energy to heat and ultimately destroy fat cells which are then removed from the body naturally. When paired with BTL Cellutone, the patients experience is significantly improved thanks to its oscillating massage therapy, as it helps increase blood supply, resulting in better lymphatic drainage and improved elimination of fat cells.

"My practice has been using BTL Cellutone in conjunction with BTL Vanquish ME for treatment of both the abdomen and thighs. The combination therapy has helped improve skin texture and tightening, as well as deliver faster circumferential reduction, so much so that I am seeing results as early as 3 sessions compared to what I used to see weeks after four treatments," said Board Certified Cosmetic and General Dermatologist, Annie Chiu, based in Redondo Beach, CA. "The treatment is also well tolerated with patients, and the addition of Cellutone appeals to these same patients with the improved skin appearance," added Chiu.

BTL Exilite

Tapping into the resurfacing ability of IPL (Intense Pulse Light), BTL expands its treatment and combination therapy portfolio with the launch of a customizable IPL device. BTL Exilite will help physicians address vascular and pigmented lesions, hair removal and acne. When combined with radio frequency in the BTL Exilis treatment, it will allow for targeted tightening, plus resurfacing, which is an ideal complement to the "liquid facelifts" being performed in office.

"I have found the new BTL Exilite to be an easy transition from our other pulsed light systems. Treatments are fast, well tolerated and effective," said Jeffrey Hunt, D.O., R.V.S., R.V.P.I., out of Tampa Bay, FL. "BTL Aesthetics has put together a winning combination of features in their new IPL. The system offers plenty of power, custom treatment parameter settings and speed to perform effective IPL treatments," added Hunt.

BTL Cellutone, BTL Exilis ULTRA, BTL Exilite and BTL Vanquish ME treatments are available through a network of licensed physicians and medically supervised spas. Visit btlaesthetics.com to find a physician for treatment.

BTL Aesthetics Continues to Set the Standard in Body Contouring Treatment

BTL Aesthetics today announced the release of a new study which further demonstrates the superior results of body shaping leader, BTL Vanquish, a radio frequency treatment that offers patients a solution to reducing stubborn fat around the midsection and effectively improves contouring of the abdomen and love handles. The study, conducted by board certified plastic surgeon, Amir Morandi, MD and board certified dermatologist, Melanie Palm, MD, aimed to determine the efficacy and safety of the popular protocol.

The study found that subjects experienced an average of 1.7 inch reduction in abdominal circumference following a controlled series of treatments with BTL Vanquish. This reduction was specifically noteworthy as the results were similar to a previous study conducted of 40 participants with an overall higher BMI on average, demonstrating that the treatment is beneficial for a variety of body types, including those with lower BMI levels. Additionally, in order for the study to be considered effective, the physicians were also looking for a statistically significant reduction in circumference three months following treatment in order to show the permanent destruction of fat cells, which was concluded as effective for the subjects in this study.

"As a practicing cosmetic dermatologist, seeing a significant reduction in subjects with a lower BMI was particularly impressive to me as it shows how BTL Vanquish is also a reliable option for more active patients, especially those who need that little extra boost to remove lingering or stubborn fat to further support a healthy lifestyle," said Dr. Palm. "The results also show the continued advancements in radio frequency technology, as I personally see radio frequency as the next big wave in cosmetic dermatology," added Dr. Palm.

The study was conducted on 24 subjects, primarily female, ranging from 30-69 in age, who all received four weekly 45-minute radio frequency treatments targeting the abdomen area and love handles. Results were tracked through standardized digital photographs and circumference measurements, and compared to biometric measurements such as weight, hydration and body fat collected at baseline and each study visit. In addition, 4 subjects were randomly selected for serum lipid and liver-related blood tests at baseline and periodically throughout treatment and follow up visits to determine safety.

"As a company committed to innovation, we're excited by the impressive results we're continuing to see through additional testing of our Vanquish device," said Jan Zarsky, Director of North America of BTL Aesthetics. "With the continued support of our valued physician partners, and recent introduction of the next generation, BTL Vanquish ME, we're confident that we'll continue to impress patients with safe and visible results," added Zarsky.

BTL Vanquish and Vanquish ME utilize patented, non-invasive and painless radiofrequency technology to reduce fat in the core and abdomen. Featuring the industry's largest treatment spot size, the newly released BTL Vanquish ME is designed to treat the whole abdomen from flank to flank during one session for faster, smoother results. BTL Vanquish ME is clinically shown to be an efficacious and repeatable procedure for those looking to eliminate belly fat and love handles without surgery.

BTL Vanquish by BTL Industries Receives FDA Clearance for Non-Surgical Circumferential Reduction of the Abdomen

BTL Vanquish is the World’s Only Operator-Independent Radio Frequency Device to Reduce Circumference of the Waistline

BTL Industries, a leading manufacturer of devices for medical and aesthetic use, announced the FDA clearance of its groundbreaking BTL Vanquish device for circumferential reduction of the abdomen area. The system’s patented technology creates a high-frequency energy field that targets the thermal effects into the fat layer while protecting surrounding skin tissue. Further, BTL Vanquish provides optimal aesthetic results across the entire abdominal area with maximum safety and comfort without surgery or downtime.

“FDA clearance of Vanquish is a significant step forward in providing the newest treatment option for body slimming and shaping.”

“BTL Vanquish is truly a breakthrough technology. Published clinical studies show it permanently destroys unwanted fat for safe and measurable circumferential reduction of the abdominal area without the cost and inconvenience of surgery,” says David McDaniel, MD, a leading dermatologist and investigator of high-tech devices for non-invasive body contouring. “FDA clearance of Vanquish is a significant step forward in providing the newest treatment option for body slimming and shaping.”

BTL Vanquish is radically different from other systems that use a point source of heat or cold. Instead, BTL Vanquish uses a panel array that emits selective RF energy with the largest spot size in the industry to treat the entire core in one application. Providing a clinically proven and safe treatment option without touching the patient’s skin, the breakthrough technology of BTL Vanquish surpasses earlier treatment options that require uncomfortable suction or labor-intensive application. The BTL Vanquish achieves results that all patients want -- a beautifully contoured abdomen and smaller waistline.

“FDA clearance of BTL Vanquish marks a defining moment in our journey to provide physicians and their patients an elegant treatment option to target fat cells and bring about a reduction in the waist circumference,” said Andrea Morrison, BTL’s Director of Clinical Development. “BTL is proud to offer patients a comfortable, affordable and noninvasive body shaping experience. This regulatory milestone underscores BTL’s commitment to deliver meaningful solutions to aesthetic patient care.”

We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new international corporate website www.btlnet.com.
