Cellulite can feel like an endless struggle, especially when diet and exercise don’t produce results. In fact, no matter how much time you spend in the gym, you likely still have some cellulite. Cellulite is caused by a variety of factors that aren’t tied to your level of fitness. If you’re looking for a way to achieve smoother, sexier skin in areas like the buttocks, thighs, arms, or stomach, then Emtone® is for you. Here’s what to know about your body rejuvenation options and how our team at EVOLV Medical Aesthetics can help.
Emtone treats the five causes of cellulite and skin laxity
Cellulite is attributed to the structure of the skin. Your skin is tethered to the deeper tissues with fibrous bands (called septae) surrounded by fatty tissue. These bands are the cause of the dimpled appearance of cellulite because they pull the skin downward when fat pushes the skin outward. There are five common causes of cellulite, including:
- Elastin and collagen deterioration
- Enlarged fat chambers
- Metabolic waste retention
- Poor blood flow
- Fibrous bands tethering the skin down
Emtone is the first device that treats these five underlying causes rather than simply severing or dissolving the bands resulting in smoother and more toned skin.
Emtone uses radiofrequency and acoustic energy
Emtone works by administering clinically proven radiofrequency (RF) energy deep into the skin. Here, it generates gentle heat (about 108–111ºF) to increase elasticity, boost collagen production, and reduce fatty tissue. At the same time, Emtone administers acoustic energy to boost circulation and reduce fluid and waste retention which contributes to the appearance of cellulite. The result is a reduction in the tension on the cellulite fibers and thus a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and firming of the tissue.
Emtone can be paired with Emsculpt®NEO for best results
Emsculpt® NEO is another FDA-cleared technology by BTL that uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to produce rapid muscle contractions and quickly burn fat. Additionally, radiofrequency energy warms the skin for a tightening and firming effect. Emtone and Emsculpt NEO work best together because, when performed first, Emsculpt NEO can warm the skin and make it more receptive to treatment with Emtone. The result is the most effective body toning and contouring results available with smoother skin, enhanced definition and tone, and overall improvement.
Emtone requires preparation
To get the best results from your Emtone and Emsculpt combination treatment, you should make sure to be well hydrated for 1-2 weeks both before and after treatments and establish a healthy and active lifestyle. This can help you enjoy optimal results in body contouring non-surgically.
