An astounding 80-90% of women and 10% of men who have gone through puberty have some degree of cellulite. Cellulite can be frustrating to see, especially if you do everything possible to maintain a healthy weight and eat correctly.
Many people assume that cellulite has no treatment other than surgical removal, but now, you can turn to EMTONE®. Read on to learn more about this treatment and how to combine it with other cosmetic procedures.
What Is EMTONE?
EMTONE is a non-invasive treatment that uses targeted pressure energy as well as radiofrequency energy to reduce the appearance of cellulite. To understand better how EMTONE works, it helps to know what cellulite is and how it forms.
Cellulite is fat that pushes up against your skin’s connective tissues. It can make your skin lumpy or puckered. Although it is not clear why women tend to develop cellulite more than men, some theories are that women accumulate more fat in their lower body and that women’s fat cells are larger than men’s.
Skin laxity can also cause cellulite. As you age, your skin can lose some of its firmness, which allows fat cells to fill in more space.
EMTONE can help in a number of ways. By heating the treatment area, it stimulates the production of new collagen to change the structure of existing collagen. New collagen contributes to firmer skin.
EMTONE also emits targeted pressure in the form of acoustic waves that boosts circulation and reduces the waste and fluid retention that make the bumpy appearance of cellulite worse.
The EMTONE procedure can treat cellulite in the following areas:
- Love handles
Emtone is a procedure ideal for people who want to find a non-surgical solution to cellulite and are in good overall health.
EMTONE with Other Skin Tightening Procedures
To treat cellulite and the excess fat pockets that may cause it, you can combine EMTONE with EMSCULPT NEO®. This combination of treatments allows your body to naturally get rid of fat cells while also achieving a more toned look. EMTONE can then deal with skin laxity, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
You can also use EMTONE after microneedling procedures. Microneedling stimulates collagen production and helps increase skin firmness. It can give you a more toned and smoother appearance when combined with the cellulite-reducing results of EMTONE.
What to Know About the Procedure
Although EMTONE is appropriate for most people, it is still important to schedule an appointment to see if you are a good candidate. Let Dr. Evans of Sugar Land Medical Spa know your full medical history and whether you have had any previous cosmetic procedures.
It is a good idea to hydrate in the days leading up to the procedure and to avoid tanning or anything that can make your skin feel more sensitive. On the day of your appointment, wear comfortable clothes and underwear.
The actual EMTONE procedure is easy. We will apply a grounding pad to circulate the energy. And then apply ultrasound lotion to the treatment area. Then we will start the session.
Each treatment area takes an average of 10 to 15 minutes.
There is no downtime with EMTONE, so you do not have to worry about missing out on activities or work.
You can start seeing results in a few weeks. It is gradual because it uses your body’s natural processes to deliver the results you want. It is important to note that results are not permanent. You may need follow-up treatments once or twice every year to maintain the best results.
