Taut + Toned

As leaders in non-invasive body sculpting since 2009, The Body Clinic loves combining treatments for a multi-dimensional approach. By combining our favorite devices, Emsculpt Neo & Emtone, Taut + Toned is our favorite way to build muscle, burn fat, tighten skin and reduce cellulite.

We love thinking of ways to maximize your results and our treatment plans can be customized to who you are. Pairing the Emsculpt NEO + Emtone has been a favorite for our patients and leads to even more transformative outcomes.


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 with electromagnetic muscle stimulation. The Emtone is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal and mechanical energy to tighten skin, reduce fat and treat cellulite. Combining these devices leads to even greater outcomes.


EMSCULPT NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies.

Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly rises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm-up activity does before any workout. In fewer 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.

Emtone works by using a device that emits radio frequency and acoustic waves that help to enhance circulation. This combination leads to collagen production and increased fat reduction when combined with the Emsculpt NEO.


Anyone who is looking to tone up and slim down is a candidate for the Taut + Toned procedure. 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.


During your complimentary consultation, one of our body specialists will design your individual treatment plan. We typically recommend 6 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.


We can treat the abdomen, front of thighs, back of thighs, glutes, love handles and arms. Please contact us for a complimentary consultation to ensure you are the right candidate.


During a Neo treatment, you will feel intense muscle contractions in the treatment area, coupled with warmth. 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. The Emtone feels similar to a hot stone massage using mechanical energy and heat.

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.


Tangible results can be felt (and sometimes seen!) right after your first treatment with positive results reported 12 weeks after the last session. Because the radio frequency side of the treatment is reducing fat cells, progressive ongoing results are expected.


Taut + Toned is non-invasive and carries with it little, if any downtime.


Taut + Toned can only be applied on areas of the body which are free from excess 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 so thankful to the BACD team and doctors. My 2024 update is that after miraculous treatment from Dr. Austin, with the latest medicine and technology my skin conditions are essentially 100% cured. (They will need a lifetime of maintenance on my end.) My keloid scars are completely healed and that is really unheard of at other medical practices. I also had rosacea which has also 100% improved. Part of the treatment is learning how to care for and maintain your skin, health, and body.Special thanks to Nurse Ari, who is gentle and kind and makes patients feel cared for and their needs seen. When I have worked with Nurse Ari, my treatments have been relatively painless and my healing time was extremely quick. Ari remembers her patients and always gives them the best care.Special special thanks to the BACD office team who always greets me by name when I arrive and always helps with the questions and needs.

Dr. Shannon Watkins is excellent! This was my first visit to BACD, and I could not have been happier with her care. She addressed all my concerns efficiently, yet I never felt rushed. I trust her intelligence, experience and recommendations. Pinching myself that I found her. The office staff is really wonderful as well. Great follow through and very kind. Highly recommend!

I have been going to BACD for almost 10 years. I have always seen Nurse Mary Krempa. Many moons ago performed Mira Dry on me, which helped reduce my underarm sweating and gave me my confidence back. She has been doing neuromodulators on me for years now and always does such a beautiful and natural job. Mary is literally an earth angel and one of my fav people. I love coming in to see her regularly. She is gorgeous and so is the work she does!

Had a great experience with Dr. Austin! She clarified where my product regimen was lacking, prescribed a medication to mitigate this dry patch that always shows up in the same spot on my chin. She did 2 different fillers for different parts of my face. It’s looks great! I have an appointment in 3 months for some laser & a chemical peel. Can’t wait! Thank you so much Dr. Austin.
