Cellulite is hands-down one of the toughest types of body fat to get rid of. Many people eat healthily and work out to no avail trying to get rid of it, growing increasingly frustrated and desperate in the process. But thanks to modern technology, we finally have a real solution for diminishing the appearance of stubborn cellulite and even getting rid of it for good!
The name of this solution is EMTONE.
Coming from maker BTL Aesthetics, EMTONE is a device that allows patients to avoid the pain, long recovery times and often unpredictable results that come with liposuction or other invasive surgical procedures. It can be used to tone and tighten the skin, improve elasticity, and perhaps most importantly, remove stubborn cellulite. Keep reading to learn more about BTL EMTONE and whether or not it might be the right choice for you.
How EMTONE Works
Done as an in-office procedure, EMOTONE is a massage-like device that is moved in circular motions around the body as needed. It uses a simultaneous combination of thermal monopolar radiofrequency and mechanical targeted pressure energy to get beneath the skin’s upper layers and stimulate the production of both collagen and elastin. This in turn causes the skin to maintain a smoother appearance and dramatically reduce the unpleasant dimpling that comes from cellulite. Metabolic waste removal is also stimulated, resulting in healthier-appearing skin overall. A single session usually takes around 20 minutes to complete.
Tissue temperature is also raised during treatment, causing increased blood circulation. Many patients also report that the cellulite itself is effectively reduced as a result. And because EMTONE can also be used to treat muscular pain, many people are able to work out more effectively following the procedure (resulting in even better muscle tone).
Minimal Pain and Recovery Time is Involved with EMTONE
No anesthesia is necessary, and most patients report the treatment feeling similar to a hot stone massage. Patients who are sensitive to heat may feel some discomfort, but this is very minimal. If anything, many patients actually enjoy the procedure and feel very relaxed both during and afterward. No recovery time is needed, and patients can resume normal activities immediately afterward.
Who is a Good Candidate for EMTONE?
The good news is that EMTONE can be used a wide variety of people, male and female. It can also be used on a wide range of BMI levels. While a consultation is always a good idea before just diving in, the truth is that EMTONE is an ideal option for just about anyone looking for a non-invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the look of their skin as a whole.
That said, certain people will notice more significant results from EMTONE than others. For example, women who have recently given birth and have loose abdominal skin are great candidates because EMTONE can help them significantly improve their skin’s tightness and decrease sagging. Likewise, middle-aged and older individuals may achieve more prominent results than young adults, simply because cellulite begins to appear more noticeably in the late 30s through 50s.
Where Can the EMTONE be Used?
Unlike older treatments that could only be used on very specific areas of the body for effective results, BTL EMTONE can be used just about anywhere that cellulite tends to be an issue. Key treatment areas include the following:
- Upper arms
- Thighs (inner, front and back)
- Hips or “Love Handles”
Results Can Take Weeks
Because it is a noninvasive treatment, EMTONE results can take weeks to appear. Most patients will require a few different sessions to achieve their desired results, the average amount being four treatments, scheduled once a week (over four weeks) or twice a week (over two weeks). The skin may appear pink immediately afterward, though it will soon return to its normal color. Within just a few weeks though, patients will notice a smoother appearance. Appearance should improve even more over the following months.
The exact results will vary from person to person, and some people may require an additional follow-up treatment later on (usually within a few months to a year).
