CELLULITE HAS MET ITS MATCH
The EMTONE is the only device specifically designed to target cellulite. The bar has been raised and cellulite has finally met its match!
"I went to Bay Area Dermatology because a few of the girls in my office recommend it. I had developed a really bad case of melasma on my cheeks and upper lip. When I made an appointment they had asked me if I had a preference as to who I wanted to see. I told the receptionist that I had Asian skin so if I could get someone that is familiar with treating common Asian skin issues that would be fantastic. I was scheduled an appointment with Dr. Hui.At my first meet with Dr. Hui she confirmed that I did indeed have melasma and that my next step was to start getting chemical peels 4-6 weeks apart. Wow. Holy smokes! So far I've received 3 chemical peels and the melasma is almost gone. It's at the point where I am able to cover it up with just foundation. Yippee! At my most recent appointment I received my first laser treatment with Mary. I had a 1pm appointment and was seen quickly to start the numbing process. I am one of those people that benifit from the extra time with the numbing cream so I appreciate that the ladies got me started immediately. I was so numb that I barely felt a thing. Definitely one of the easiest laser procedures I have ever done."- J.C. / Yelp / Dec 01, 2017
"Dr. Austin has worked wonders for my skin. I'm currently 26 years old and have suffered from acne since I was 12. In the pre-Dr.Austin days, my acne would flare up before my period, resulting in 2-4 painful bumps in the chin/cheek areas. It was never bad enough for me to try more serious treatments like Accutane, but the combination of active/healing acne with mild rosacea made me feel like I couldn't go out without several layers of foundation. As a teenager, I tried everything for my acne: salicylic acid spot treatments, benozyl peroxide cleansers, tea tree oil, and clindamycin peroxide (which worked amazingly well for a few weeks until it stopped working completely). In my adult life, I came to accept acne as a recurring monthly struggle, even though I continued to be insanely envious of other Asian women with effortlessly beautiful skin. Earlier this year, my acne suddenly got worse. Instead of annoying (but manageable) monthly spots, I experienced several large, painful cysts along my chin that stayed for weeks. My skin was so bad that makeup didn't help: foundation would flake off almost instantly. I decided to finally see a dermatologist...and luckily I found Dr. Austin! Dr. Austin put me on a treatment consisting primarily of spironolactone and tretinoin. She simplified my skin routine from 10 items to a manageable 4. I can't begin to describe how much my skin has improved. Both spironolactone and tretinoin take a while to kick-in, but after approximately 1 month into the new routine, I started to see dramatic results. No more breakouts, plus my skin texture has improved by so much - coworkers and friends have all commented on the glow! The new routine from Dr. Austin has seriously been a god-send. I wish I had discovered this routine back in high school; it would have saved me so many years of frustration and distress. I now religiously follow my skincare routine - and without exaggerating, I have not had a single pimple in the last 5 months (fingers crossed that it stays that way). I am now working with Dr. Austin to minimize the redness in my face and eliminate the sun spots. Thank you so much, Dr. Austin!"- R.L. / Yelp / Oct 10, 2019

"I have been seeing Dr. Andrea Hui-Austin for 3 years now and I absolutely love how she has helped me transform my skin. She is extremely knowledgeable, has impeccable bedside manners, and is highly skilled. I always feel comfortable in her hands and leave the office extremely happy with my treatments. I won't let anyone else near my face. Furthermore, her assistants are extremely empathetic. I highly recommend Dr. Hui-Austin!"- T.S. / Yelp / Sep 02, 2019
"After watching my rosacea get worse for years, I finally decided to get help. Dr. Hui Austin has transformed my skin!! For the first time since junior high, I can go outside wearing only sunscreen and people won't ask me if I'm feeling unwell or if I'm sunburned. She's a teacher who helped me understand what was causing my redness and bumps. She answered all my questions and taught me why certain ingredients or treatments would (or wouldn't!) help me. She's laid out a long-term care plan to keep my skin clear for years. I'm so grateful!"- A.L. / Yelp / Aug 20, 2019
HAVE YOU ALREADY TRIED…
Diet and exercise and at home devices?
There are multiple factors that contribute to cellulite and unfortunately at home treatments are often very temporary and don’t reach the depths needed to target the collagen fibers and adipose tissue that are the main factors of dimpled skin. Luckily the EMtone can do just that!
If you loved our Exilis Ultra treatments for cellulite reduction, you will absolutely be thrilled with the EMtone. Incorporating pneumatic energy (think Zwave) while simultaneously delivering heat and radiofrequency allows tissue to reach a higher temperature while maintaining patient comfort. This means better results! Treatments can also be done twice a week getting you to your endpoint much quicker.
EMtone is the perfect compliment to Sculptra. Sculptra injections allow us to fill in large dimples while the EMtone targets the remaining tissue and tightens the skin. Using both of these treatment options together yields maximum results.
On its own, Alastin Transform has been the favorite at-home body product among our patients improving tone and texture. But paired with EMtone, Alastin has the power to enhance and speed up your results by using its LipoDRONE delivery system to accelerate the body’s natural removal process of post procedure fat debris, while supporting the production of new collagen and elastin.

HOW DOES EMTONE WORK?
EMtone is the only device that simultaneously addresses ALL of the contributing factors to cellulite including diminishing fat chambers, remodeling collagen, restoring skin elasticity, enhancing blood flow and increasing metabolic waste removal in the treated area.
AM I CANDIDATE?
Do you have unwanted areas of cellulite? Then yes! EMtone is great for anyone looking to smooth and tighten their thighs, abdomen, arms, and even calves.
EMtone cannot be performed on women who are currently pregnant.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
During your complimentary consultation, one of our body specialists will design your individual treatment plan. We typically recommend 6 treatments, scheduled 1-2 times/ week. A treatment for a single area takes approximately 30 minutes, but you may need to allow up to an hour in our office.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Like an intense hot stone massage. We are also able to adjust settings and treatment techniques to adapt to your comfort level.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Some patients see small changes even after their first treatment, however the full results take 2 months following your last visit.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
There is no downtime with the EMtone treatment and you can return to all normal activities immediately post treatment. The area will remain red for 20-30 minutes after your session.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
EMTone can only be applied on a body area which is 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 an EMtone treatment, although it’s always a good idea to come to your body treatments well hydrated.
