Purchase a EMsculpt NEO Body Sculpting Treatment
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 am not exaggerating when I say that Dr. Andrea Hui Austin is a LIFE CHANGER. I’ve been seeing her for almost two years now for treatment of my rosacea and acne and skin is clearer than it’s ever been, clearer than I ever hoped it would be. I first started seeing Dr. Austin in 2019, a few months after I turned 31. I’d been diagnosed with rosacea in middle school and had otherwise had fairly clear skin until I reached college. In college, I started breaking out more and more frequently until my acne was basically chronic. Some people in my family had late-bloomer acne, so I told myself it would probably just clear up as I got older, and I tried to take the best care of my skin that I could in the meantime. I tried every OTC treatment under the sun, went on different diets, and saw a series of dermatologists who put me on a range of topical medications and oral antibiotics. Nothing made much of a difference and by my late 20s I’d was so close to giving up and resigning myself to having bad skin for the rest of my life, although it made me feel miserable.That’s when I realized that the one thing I hadn’t tried was seeing a dermatologist who specializes in treating rosacea. I did some googling and Dr. Austin’s name came up again and again, so I scheduled a consult. My expectations weren’t high, given how little luck I’d had before. But Dr. Austin completely blew me away in the consult. Not only was she able to explain why my rosacea was causing these breakouts, but I was blown away by her empathy; she started the appointment by asking me to tell her about my history of rosacea and acne and after I went through the litany of things I’d tried she said, "I’m so sorry you had to go through that." It made me tear up to feel like someone cared and understood how much having bad skin can take a toll on self-esteem.She started me on a routine of oral medication and new topical skincare products, and did an excellent job of answering all my questions and explaining how each product or medication worked and why it was necessary. I noticed a difference in my skin within weeks, and once the breakouts were more under control we began a series of laser treatments to help tame the rosacea. As my skin continued to heal and improve, the treatments became less frequent, and I’m now at the point where I only have them a few times a year. My skin has healed enough that she’s also able to address the scarring I have from acne and, honestly, that’s a milestone I never thought I’d reach until I started working with her. She’s continued to be a thoughtful and kind person, celebrating the milestones with me as my skin healed, remembering details about my personal life, and engaging me in conversation during the treatments; I feel like she really cares.As a bonus, the whole BACD staff is competent, professional, and friendly. They keep things running smoothly, call/email back quickly, and have a very flexible auto-ship program that sends my topical products to me four times a year. BACD has done a sterling job of adapting to the pandemic--they’ve put up signage, spaced out appointments, created physical distance in the waiting room, and changed their payment process so you pay in the treatment room. I’ve noticed some other places get lax with these types of measures as the pandemic has gone on, but BACD has been incredibly consistent, which I appreciate.If you have rosacea and acne, Dr. Austin is your gal. She’s truly and completely changed my skin in a way I never thought possible. I highly, highly recommend her!(The photos I’ve included from her office are from before the acne scarring treatment; the personal photos I included are after one acne scarring treatment. No digital filters, no makeup or concealer in any of these photos!)"- L.S. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"What an incredibly professional and heart felt office. I have to say that my visit was like no other Dermatology office I have been to. I worked in the Dermatology field for over 13 years and have worked with many Dermatologist. Dr. Andrea Hui Austin is like no other. Her professionalism and exceptional knowledge is astonishing. She takes the time to get to know you which in my opinion really helps her as a provider get to know what will work best for her patients. my treatments with Dr. Andrea Hui Austin are spot on, she has brought my skin back to life. Lets not forget the staff and how they make a patient feel cared for from check in to check out.Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.Five stars all the way!"- R.H. / Yelp / Jan 13, 2021
"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
"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
