Where art thou my biceps: Emsculpt NEO at Mendis Aesthetics @ Mandarin Gallery

Apart from working out and eating healthy, it seemed that nothing else could bring me closer to the indescribable quality that toned biceps and abs bring. My goals almost became a tale of translucent unreality, until I tried out the Emsculpt Neo at MENDIS AESTHETICS @ Mandarin Gallery.

(Yes! Emsculpt Neo can be used for the arms! Read to find out more!)

Emsculpt Neo, by (almost) the same name as its predecessor, albeit now evolved with more advanced technology, boasts of a world-first treatment that blends radiofrequency heat energy with HIFEM, using a patented electrode that is found in no other body-contouring device. This non-invasive body-sculping machine is able to tone up your body and burn through fat, thus leaving one with a faint sense of gladness from the sturdier biceps, abs or butt that one can attain after 30 minutes of musing among laurels, just by lying on a bed.

MENDIS AESTHETICS: Located on the fourth floor of Mandarin Gallery, Dr Mendis offers a huge range of aesthetic services such as dermal fillers, laser skin treatment and anti aging facial apart from EMSCULPT. Its elegant interior, outlined by its gentle lights, always reminded me of a dove's nest.

From "Dr. Mendis is dedicated to quality, service and image enhancement with a focus on improving his clients overall quality of life. This means that, in addition to aesthetic treatments, Dr. Mendis is dedicated to the well-being. His approach is to view his patient as a whole help each individual address diet, exercise, body and skincare, and ways to de-stress their life."

If you have been a long time reader of my blog, you would also know that Dr Mendis is the 1st Runner Up in Singapore Manhunt 1993, and continues to be a regular pageant judge!


While there are various factors that impinge on individuals’ willingness to try novel technology, I had always been one excited kid when it comes to the technology that Dr Mendis brings into his clinic. While no stranger to the previous Emsculpt, Emsculpt Neo has added radiofrequency (RF) energy, which the added heat boosts blood supply to muscles so they build up stronger and faster. It also heats layers of fat to a level that causes them to physically break down which then are naturally metabolized by the body, leading to permanent fat removal with muscle building benefit

What is so special about Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt Neo’s fat reduction capabilities exceeds that of other popular body-sculpting technologies like cryolipolysis and the previous Emsculpt, and the muscle gains last for at least 6 months!

Fat reduction capabilities:

Emsculpt neo 29.8%

Cryolipolysis 22.4%

Emsculpt 19.6%

What areas of the body can EMSculpt Neo treat?

  • Abdomen – gain a tighter stomach and a more defined six-pack

  • Buttocks – gain a lifted and sculpted butt with minimal effort

  • Arms – increase the size of triceps and biceps while tackling bingo wing fat

  • Legs – reduce the circumference of your thighs and slim down your saddlebags

  • Calves – improve the shape and size of your calf muscles

The science behind this technology:

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

Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature rapidly increase by various degrees, preparing muscles to stress exposure akin to warmup movements before a typical workout session. In less than 4 minutes, apoptosis (fat cell death) is caused by the temperature in subcutaneous fat and are expelled naturally from the body.

As the famous saying goes, "no problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it.” If you are experiencing a plateau in your body sculpting journey, Emsculpt NEO is a good option to try, as its HIFEM+ energy contracts muscle fibers at unachievable intensities managed by the brain's limitation, thus forcing muscles to adapt and increasing the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. Emsculpt NEO may be the panacea to reaching a different height in your body sculpting journey!

By the way, check out Tracy's (Dr Mendis' assistant) biceps after 4 sessions of Emsculpt NEO. She wears size XS for clothes and you would never guess she has such defined biceps
