In November 2022, Riverdalians Michael Brown and his wife Dr. Alisa Gladstone Brown, along with Drs. Lidia Lidagoster and Pablo Villegas, opened Dream Sculpt Body Spa in New Rochelle.
Michael explained that the “spa is run by doctors who want to help people lose weight and build muscle.”
The Dream Sculpt owners, who are also Orthodox Jews, have been friends for years. “We found out about brand new equipment made by a company called BTL. The equipment works on the body and helps one lose weight and fat. It also builds muscle,” Michael said. The Spa has six different machines that work on different parts of the body. “We can do things from the face down to the base!”
Brown described their most popular machine, the EMSCULPT NEO, which is a body contouring treatment and the only FDA-cleared treatment that simultaneously builds muscle and burns fat. This non-invasive body shaping method is different from other options in the EMSCULPT industry. The company has found that EMSCULPT NEO can increase muscle by 25% and decrease fat by 30%. The 30 minute treatments are painless and require no downtime. Popular areas chosen for this treatment include the abdomen, arms, legs and buttocks. EMSCULPT NEO body contouring results are reported to be long-lasting and natural-looking.
Brown finds that many clients use this machine rather than undergoing tummy tucks or other invasive surgeries. He noted, “Many celebrities and athletes love this machine, because one session on the EMSCULPT NEO is equivalent to 16 hours in the gym. For people who don’t like the gym or do not have the time to go to the gym, but want to lose some fat and build some muscle, this machine is a great option.”
Another service offered is EMSELLA, a non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence. This device helps clients who are experiencing urge incontinence (a sudden need to urinate before involuntarily urinating) or stress incontinence (urinary leakage). Although incontinence is a problem most would rather not talk about, it is quite common among women at any age. Estimates are that one third of American women experience problems with urinary retention. EMSELLA offers a non-surgical, safe, painless and effective solution. Also known as the “kegel throne,” EMSELLA uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate pelvic floor muscles, strengthening them to improve urinary retention.
The CELLUTONE is a cellulite treatment using therapeutic vibrations to reduce skin dimpling and improve skin laxity. The EMTONE CELLULITE TREATMENT is another non-invasive treatment for reducing cellulite. This procedure is non-surgical as well, and also requires no downtime. It uses dual technology to target the leading causes of cellulite. As a result, EMTONE sessions are fast, virtually painless and reduce cellulite on the stomach, buttocks, thighs and arms. EMTONE rejuvenates skin on a cellular level, replacing cellulite with smooth, youthful skin.
The EMFEMME 360 treatment, which uses radiofrequency energy and is the shortest RF treatment available today, addresses common women’s health concerns, including vaginal tightening, urinary incontinence, relief from pain and more. Treatments rejuvenate and restore, allowing women to regain confidence.
BTL also has an instant non-surgical, non-invasive face-lift device. EMFACE treatments “last only 20 minutes. Each session lifts, tones and enhances the look of the face without using needles, toxins or fillers, using RF energy and HIFES technology. EMFACE is FDA-cleared as a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles and other noticeable signs of aging such as sagging, loose skin; lifts the face; tones facial muscles; and increases collagen and elastin.”
Projecting what they hope their customers will get out of the experience, Brown expressed, “Lose some of the pounds, gain some muscle and have people feeling good about themselves, all to improve their quality of life.”
The spa’s doctors meet with all new clients to discuss treatment options. New clients can have photos taken of the specific areas of their bodies that they want to work on, so they can see their results at the end of a treatment cycle.
