Strong, well-developed muscles are a hallmark of a shapely figure and are a vital component of long-term health and well-being. However, sometimes it takes more than a diligent weight-lifting routine to build certain muscles and attain our desired body contours. In these cases, body sculpting expert Dr. Jason Emer often recommends BodyTone in Beverly Hills to help patients transcend frustrating barriers to muscle growth like genetics and age.

Right for you?


BodyTone is not a weight loss treatment. However, it can be ideal for patients with a BMI of no more than 25 who want to improve muscle strength and definition.

Patients with a higher percentage of body fat are likely better candidates for alternative treatments. If you are overweight, Dr. Emer can provide suggestions for weight loss solutions that can help you bring your BMI down to 25 or less, so you can benefit from BodyTone.

If localized fat deposits are preventing you from getting the toned look you desire, a 360 HD lipo procedure may be a more suitable approach to achieving a more chiseled, athletic look. Dr. Emer provides incredible transformations for men and women with this precision body shaping procedure.


BodyTone involves the use of bio-electric energy to stimulate muscle contractions. BodyTone treatments cause your muscles to contract more intensely than they would if you were performing weight-lifting exercises on your own. In fact, the hyper-contractions produced by BodyTone energy pulses stimulate tens of thousands of muscle contractions in just 30 minutes.

Also essential to BodyTone’s efficacy is that the device employs a series of bio-electric pulses in specific pattern variations. These different patterns work to confuse the muscles, which is key to dramatic improvements in the size, shape, and strength of your muscles. The targeted muscles undergo a re-education process that results in significant muscle mass increases.


      BodyTone is a non-surgical procedure and does not require anesthesia or sedation. Treatments typically take about 30 minutes and are performed at Dr. Emer’s medical practice in Beverly Hills. Multiple muscle groups can be treated in a single BodyTone session. 

      Once the applicators are securely positioned over the treatment area, the device takes the muscles through three phases of stimulation:

      • Warm up – First, there is a low-intensity pulse cycle to prepare the muscles for the hyper-contractions to come.
      • Muscle toning – The muscle toning phase increases the intensity to a medium level. This is the defining and shaping component of the treatment.
      • Workout – The third and final phase involves working the muscles at peak intensity. The Workout phase causes a controlled breakdown of the muscles to initiate the body’s muscle building process.


        Since BodyTone is non-invasive, you will not need any downtime to recover. The treated muscles will be somewhat sore after a BodyTone session, similar to what you would expect from an intense workout. Most patients describe their post-treatment soreness as mild and lasting no more than a few days.

        To expedite muscle recovery and help you get maximum benefits from your BodyTone sessions, Dr. Emer may recommend post-treatment therapies like:

        • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy – Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an amazing non-invasive treatment that accelerates muscle recovery and reduces inflammation.
        • IV therapy – Performed in the comfort of Dr. Emer’s IV Lounge, IV therapy can ease muscle aches and promote a quicker recovery after working your muscles with BodyTone. The PERFORM IV is tailored to the needs of athletes and those who want to increase muscle mass, making it a perfect complement to BodyTone.


        Your response to BodyTone will be unique to your physiology and various other factors. Some patients notice results sooner than others. Visible improvements can generally be expected within six to ten weeks after the last session in your series of treatments. Patients should be dedicated to proper diet and exercise habits to maintain their BodyTone results.



          Every patient is unique in terms of their anatomy and treatment goals, so the number of recommended sessions varies from one patient to the next. On average, a series of six BodyTone sessions is advised over a three-week period. Less frequent maintenance sessions can then be scheduled to compensate for age-related declines in muscle mass and strength and/or to build on initial improvements.



            The Dr. Emer Difference

            How Does Dr. Emer Do BODYTONE Differently?

            Dr. Emer has built his esteemed reputation on his commitment to comprehensive, patient-specific treatments. His holistic perspective as a body sculptor involves identifying and addressing all of the factors contributing to a patient’s cosmetic concerns, rather than just focusing on one aspect.

            Based on his assessment of your problem areas, he may advise combining BodyTone with additional procedures to take your results to the next level. Your BodyTone body shaping protocol may involve one or more of the following non-surgical treatments:

            • Thermage – With this non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) procedure, you benefit from skin tightening and long-term improvements in collagen production.
            • Ultherapy – Ultherapy is an ultrasound-based method of promoting collagen formation for firmer and tighter skin.
            • BTL Vanquish – This non-surgical treatment employs RF energy to destroy fat cells and help you lose those last pesky inches.
            • Hormonal optimization – If your hormones are out of balance, it can be especially difficult to develop and maintain strength, as well as avoid accumulating excess fat. Hormonal optimization treatments work from the inside to support you in achieving your body shaping goals.
            • Cellfina – If you are worried that cellulite will detract from your BodyTone results, Dr. Emer may advise a minimally invasive Cellfina cellulite treatment.
            • QWO – QWO is an injectable treatment that targets cellulite in the buttocks area, so you can enjoy smoother, firmer contours after BodyTone.

            How Much Will My BodyTone Treatment Cost?

            The price of your BodyTone treatment will be determined during your consultation. The number of treatment areas and the number of BodyTone sessions you need to reach your goals will affect the overall cost.
