About EMsculpt NEO
As leaders in non-invasive body sculpting since 2009, The Body Clinic is excited to stay on the cutting-edge by adding the EMsculpt NEO to our San Francisco clinic. For the first time ever, the EmSculpt NEO combines the powerhouse of two technologies we love for non-invasive body sculpting: HIFEM with RF (radio frequency) for unparalleled muscle building and fat reduction in ONE TREATMENT.
We have always loved combining technologies but we can finally achieve these results with a single device. We are thrilled to offer this revolutionary treatment at our San Francisco body clinic!
TONE MUSCLE, BURN FAT
The Emsculpt NEO is the next generation in body contouring, being the only device to simultaneously tone muscle and reduce fat in an easy 30-minute treatment. The NEO combines the technology of Emsculpt with radio-frequency, similar to Vanquish or Emtone. These devices have all been used in our San Francisco office with results that our patients have loved. Now we can achieve more impressive outcomes by combining them into a single device.
HOW DOES EMSCULPT NEO WORK?
EMSCULPT NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies.
Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm-up activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Clinical studies showed on average a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat.
HIFEM+ energy contracts the muscle fibers in the area at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workouts. Extreme stress forces the muscle to adapt resulting in an increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. Clinical studies showed on average a 25% growth in muscle volume.
AM I CANDIDATE?
Anyone who is looking to tone up and slim down is a candidate for the Neo. It’s also our first device that is effective on body types of up to 35 BMI!
Please note that if you have any metal located in the treatment area you will not be able to treat with Emsculpt NEO, but please contact our office as we have other options available.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
During your complimentary consultation, one of our body specialists will design your individual treatment plan. We typically recommend 4 treatments, scheduled every 7 - 10 days apart. Many people will opt for maintenance treatments as needed. Treatment for a single area takes approximately 30 minutes, but you may need to allow up to an hour in our office.
WHAT AREAS CAN I TREAT?
We currently use EMsculpt Neo to treat the abdomen, but will eventually treat the buttocks, arms, and calves when the technology becomes available.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE? WILL I BE SORE AFTER?
During a Neo treatment, you will feel intense muscle contractions in the treatment area, coupled with warmth - we liken it to a hot stone massage. It’s a strange feeling at first, but most people quickly get used to it and actually end up liking it, much like any new workout.
Due to the technology, even though you are experiencing muscle contractions, you are also quickly releasing lactic acid which helps to soothe muscles and prevent soreness associated with typical workouts.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Tangible results can be felt (and sometimes seen!) right after your first treatment with positive results reported 6-8 weeks after the last session. Because the radio frequency side of the treatment is reducing fat cells, progressive ongoing results are expected
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Neo is non-invasive and carries with it little if any downtime.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
EMsculpt Neo can only be applied on areas of the body which are free from hair. It is highly recommended that you shave the area on the day of your procedure. On the day of your procedure be sure to remove any jewelry in the treatment area. Other than that, there is no other necessary preparation required for a Neo treatment, although it’s always a good idea to come to your body treatments well hydrated.

"I visited Dr. Austin for a skin consultation after receiving a recommendation from one of my friends who sees Dr. Austin for Botox (Xeomin) injections and to review & remove any suspicious moles/freckles and review skin damage on my neck. Her office staff are very friendly & helpful. After washing my face (they provide makeup pad removers, facial wash & a hair band), photos were taken including one with a camera to determine sun damage. Dr. Austin has a very positive, glowing energy about her & was very easy to speak with about my skin concerns. After a full review of my skin & my skincare regimen, I got 20 units of Xeomin in my forehead & removal of a mole that was progressively getting larger on my upper lip. Thankfully the lab report indicated that it was benign. I visited again about 10 days later for additional freckle removal & treatment for sun damage on my neck, as well as a check in for my Botox injections to see how it settled in. The Botox looked great & my skin was smooth. I’ve healed up from my 2nd visit & my skin looks great.Her strongest recommendations is to always wear sunblock (I wear 2-3 layers on my face but I forgot to apply on weekdays to my neck when I was living in Hawaii which resulted in 15 years of sun damage while driving )."- P.M. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020
"I highly recommend Dr. Steven He. I have had melasma and Nevi of Ota from on my cheeks and temples for the past 15 years. I’ve tried treatments from other dermatologists, including hydroxychloroquine cream, with no improvement. I’ve also met with other laser treatment centers, who presented cookie cutter treatments. However, I’ve seen friends and family get rebound hyperpigmentation on their face from aggressive dose of laser therapy. For Asian skin, sometimes the dose of laser and strength of chemical peels have to be adjusted due to skin sensitivity. As an Asian female physician, I was cautious about who to trust. I chose Dr. He because I heard he has lots of experience with Asian American patients. I started seeing him a few months ago, and I am extremely confident in his skills. He is thoughtful about his approach and tailors his treatment plan to the individual patient. I have had 5 treatments, starting with chemical peels to remove superficial melasma, and now transitioned to laser treatments for the darker spots. The spots have significantly lightened. I recently saw my family, who had been hounding me for years about my spots, and they could not even notice the spots! I am extremely satisfied with Dr. He’s care. He is a knowledgeable, conscientious, effective physician."- W.T. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2020
"This place is the élite Dermatology spot in the Bay Area. Dr. Welsh and her team are simply incredible in their professions. The place is talented, clean, proficient and all with a personal touch you will not soon forget. For many years now I have simply gone in and sat down and let them do what they know best. Keep up the great work!"- K.R. / Google / Sep 01, 2020
"As an Asian, I know that I have the genetic advantage of looking young for my age. That can be negated by baking in the sun. I decided to stay out of the sun since my late 20s when I finally stopped going to the tanning salon (!!!). I decided rather late in life to finally take care of my skin.I *almost* didn’t want to write this review about Dr. He, fearful that he will get so busy I’ll have to book appointments with him at least a month in advance! Yes, I know that’s selfish of me but I am a little bit proprietary when it comes to good doctors - if I find a doctor who not only has an amazing and compassionate manner AND super knowledgeable in his/her field, I’m a patient for life. I originally went to Dr. He for filler. When I first met him, I couldn’t stop staring at his skin. I wanted my skin to look like his! He told me what he could do for me and not only did he end up educating me about different fillers but suggested different treatments I could get.Because Dr. He is such a good educator about skin, I have gotten various treatments for my rosacea and other issues and have been very happy with everything he suggested."- N.T. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020
"As an esthetician I deeply appreciate the impecccable 5 star job this office does. Dr Austin has a reputation for being extremely careful and honest with her patients and each botox procedure I have had with her has been flawless. I also have to shout out nurse mary who is a rare gem in this industry. She makes any procedure comfortable-- even microneedling. She is so deeply personable and makes every patient feel special. The supporting staff is always so patient and caring as well... and Monica the esthetician who supports dr Austin is another absolute gem and has a fabulous bed side manner-- this office is unique in its precision with treatments and lovely people to make sure you’re always at ease."- T.Z. / Yelp / Aug 24, 2020
