In a digital age when pictures of relaxing weekends at the beach end up on social media sites, many people can be embarrassed by pictures that show off their cellulite. The majority of women from celebrities to stay-at-home moms either have or will develop cellulite at some point. And while it is a normal and harmless condition, it is still one that many people would like to resolve.
Many creams and treatments claim to get rid of cellulite, but not all of them are effective. Emtone treatments are backed by science and can produce great results. Our Emtone treatments at The Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village can help you gain enough confidence to unpack your short shorts and bathing suit this summer.
Everything You Need to Know About Cellulite
Cellulite is a lumpy or dimpled texture that can sometimes occur on the surface of the skin. Everyone’s skin has a network of collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis layer. In women, these fibers are vertical and tether the fat layer and the upper layer of the skin together. When these vertical fibers weaken or tighten, they can cause the fat deposits underneath the skin to protrude, resulting in the “cottage cheese” texture often found on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Because the collagen fibers in the skin of males crisscross under the skin, men are less likely, though still able, to develop cellulite.
This condition can differ in severity from person to person. An individual with grade 1 cellulite will only have dimpling when pressure is being applied to the area either by squeezing the skin or by sitting down. With Grade 2 cellulite, the cellulite will be visible while the person is standing, but not when they are laying down and there will only be a few dimples. With Grade 3 cellulite, there will be more dimples, the dimples will be deeper, and they will be present both in an upright position and while lying down.
Cellulite is extremely common and can affect people of every weight and age. In fact, 90% of women, when asked, said that they have some cellulite on their bodies. Although it is normal, 60% of women also say that they would like to find a way to make their skin smooth and undimpled. Emtone provides this solution without surgery or other invasive procedures.
What Is Emtone and How Does the Emtone Machine Work?
Emtone is an FDA-approved treatment that can reduce cellulite and tighten the skin in the treatment area. It harnesses the power of both radiofrequency energy and targeted pressure energy to help treat the problem at its root. It can help treat all 5 major causes of cellulite including poor blood flow, skin laxity, collagen fibers that are damaged, and enlarged fat cells.
Radiofrequency energy from the Emtone machine reaches deep into the lower layers of skin. Once there, it remodels collagen fibers, stimulates collagen and elastin production, and prompts the skin’s natural healing responses. The result is skin that is stronger, more elastic, and tighter.
Targeted pressure energy also helps to promote skin strength and elasticity, but it can also have other effects on the skin. It can help improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage, discouraging fluid retention in the treatment area.
What Do Emtone Treatments Feel Like?
Emtone treatments are comfortable for the patient and do not require any anesthetic. During the treatment, you will feel some heat from the radiofrequency energy. The targeted pressure energy will create a pulsing feeling on the skin which is not painful. If the treatment is getting too warm, you can ask for a short break to help you tolerate the heat better.
During the treatment, we will apply a cream onto your skin that will help the Emtone handpiece to glide across the skin. We will then move the handpiece in small circular motions around the entirety of the treatment area. Most Emtone treatments take no longer than 20 minutes per target area to complete. After your treatment, you may have a little redness on your skin for a short time, but you can get back to your usual activities. There is no downtime with this treatment.
Emtone Treatment Plans
Treatment plans are customizable and are based entirely on what you want to achieve through the treatment. Most patients will begin to see results after the first one or two treatments, but we usually recommend investing in a package of 4 treatments for the best results. Treatments can be spaced out once per week or twice per week.
