Between 80 and 90% of women who’ve gone through puberty have cellulite. It often appears on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen, creating a lumpy or dimpled appearance on the skin. In years past, cellulite seemed to be an unfortunate part of life, with no cure or actual treatment.
However, a new treatment offers skin tightening and cellulite reduction without an invasive procedure. It’s called Emtone.
At Exclusively Radiant MedSpa in Pearland, TX, we’re selective about our treatments because we want our clients to see the best results. So we’ve added Emtone to our body sculpting services so that our clients can finally say goodbye to cellulite.
If you’re curious about Emtone, read on to learn all about this groundbreaking procedure that offers smooth, toned skin without surgery.
What Is Cellulite?
To understand Emtone, you first need to understand cellulite. Cellulite is the harmless collection of fat that pushes against the connective tissue beneath your skin. The forming of cellulite depends on the following factors:
- Amount of fat on your body
- The thickness of your skin
Over time, skin loses elasticity, which can amplify the appearance of cellulite. Weight gain can also cause cellulite to appear more prominently. While obesity may make cellulite more pronounced, even very lean people may have cellulite.
The exact cause of cellulite is unknown. However, it generally results from an interaction between the connective tissue below the skin’s surface and the layer of fat below the connective tissue.
What Is Emtone?
Emtone offers non-invasive cellulite reduction and skin tightening treatment. The first and only device to combine thermal and mechanical energy, Emtone works to treat all factors contributing to cellulite.
The Emtone device simultaneously emits radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy. Through that combination, it targets all of the factors attributed to cellulite formation, including:
- Fat chambers that exist under the skin
- Lack of collagen
- Skin laxity
- Poor blood flow
- Fluid retention
- Metabolic waste
Emtone’s technology combines radiofrequency heat energy, acoustic waves, and pressure to provide a cellulite solution with dramatic results. It stimulates the body’s wound healing reaction, encouraging the production of collagen and elastic tissue. This helps create a smoother skin surface by shrinking and eliminating lumps and bumps.
Before Your Emtone Treatments
Before your Emtone procedure, you’ll sit down with a member of Exclusively Radiant’s skilled team to design a treatment plan that suits your needs and goals.
Each Emtone non-invasive cellulite reduction treatment takes about 20 minutes, and most patients need about four treatments to achieve optimal results. Therefore, we schedule the treatments over two to four weeks.
The Emtone Procedure
For your Emtone session, you will lie comfortably in a private treatment room. A member of our expert team will start by cleaning your treatment area and will place a grounding mat underneath you. Next, we’ll apply a gel to your targeted area, similar to an ultrasound.
To begin the treatment, we’ll use an applicator wand and move it around in a circular motion. Most patients feel a warm sensation during the treatment and often find it relaxing. We can adjust the instrument’s heat intensity to your comfort level at any time.
The non-invasive cellulite reduction treatment is quick and easy, with no numbing cream or anesthesia necessary. As a result, you can return to your normal activities immediately.
While some patients notice an improvement in skin tightening and the appearance of cellulite after about one to three weeks, full results from a series of Emtone treatments appear in about 12 weeks. Emtone reports a 90% patient satisfaction rate after completing treatments.
Emtone Treatment Areas
Emtone offers effective skin tightening and toning anywhere on the body with cellulite. Depending on your concerns, Emtone can target the following areas:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
When you meet with the skilled team at Exclusively Radiant MedSpa to discuss Emtone treatments, we will design a personalized treatment plan that meets your goals.
Can I Combine Emtone with Other Procedures?
Yes. Emtone is a complementary procedure for many other treatments, and using Emtone in combination with other body contouring procedures often results in decisive results.
Emtone and Fillers
Clients seeking a combination approach to skin laxity and body contouring may want to combine dermal fillers like Sculptra with Emtone to stimulate collagen while tightening tissue and reducing cellulite. This combination provides impressive results when treating certain types of cellulite.
Emtone and Body Contouring
Patients seeking a comprehensive approach to reducing fat, building muscle, and improving the texture of their skin without surgery may look to combine body contouring procedures.
Emtone works well with treatments like Vanquish ME, which eliminates fat. Once Vanquish ME reduces fat, Emtone provides skin tightening and cellulite reduction that delivers a striking improvement in the targeted area.
Emsculpt is a non-invasive muscle-building and toning device that works well with Emtone to offer a holistic approach to rejuvenating targeted areas, such as the buttocks, abdomen, or arms.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Emtone?
Emtone is for men and women looking for non-invasive cellulite reduction and skin tightening. The procedure is safe for all skin tones and skin types because it uses heat and pressure to achieve results.
Emtone works on all body types, whether you want to improve skin laxity after losing weight or you’re at the beginning of your weight loss journey and want to reduce cellulite.
