What Is EMTONE And How Does It Work On Cellulite?
Even with healthy eating, consistent exercise, and maintaining a stable weight, many men and women struggle with stubborn cellulite. The dimpled texture of cellulite can be embarrassing and discouraging, making it difficult for people to feel comfortable in their own skin and wear certain styles of clothing confidently. The caring and professional team at JEM Medspa understands the frustrating nature of cellulite and is proud to offer nonsurgical cellulite reduction using the innovative Emtone™ system at both their Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL locations.
What causes cellulite?
It is a common misconception that only people who are overweight have cellulite. In reality, countless men and women in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL who maintain a normal weight and exercise regularly develop cellulite on various areas of the body. Factors contributing to the dimpled appearance of cellulite include:
- Water/fluid retention
- Breakdown of collagen and elastin
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Poor circulation
- Enlarged fat cell chambers
Arguably, the most compelling aspect of Emtone is that it addresses all of these issues, making it one of the most efficient and effective cellulite treatment options available today.
How does Emtone work?
Emtone is one of the newest cellulite treatment options available, and it is easy to see why it has quickly become one of the most popular. Using a combination of radiofrequency heat energy, acoustic waves, and pressure, the cutting-edge Emtone system is able to target all of the major causes of cellulite, including a lack of collagen, fluid retention, and poor circulation, resulting in a stunning reduction of visible cellulite.
During an Emtone session at JEM Medspa, patients will lie comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms. The qualified and experienced provider will begin by cleansing the treatment area and placing a grounding mat underneath the patient. Using the handheld Emtone device, the provider will then administer the treatment, which typically takes about 15 minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated. Patients often describe a warm sensation during the treatment, along with pressure or vibrations, but Emtone is completely noninvasive and usually pain-free, meaning no anesthetic or numbing agent is needed. Following an Emtone treatment session, patients can return to their normal daily activities. Many patients experience redness or warmth at the treatment site, though these symptoms are usually very mild and resolve quickly on their own.
How long does it take to see results after Emtone?
Some patients notice an improvement in the appearance of cellulite after Emtone, though it typically takes about 1 – 3 weeks for results to become visible, with the most dramatic enhancements seen around 2 – 3 months after your final treatment session.
How many Emtone sessions do you need?
As with almost any cosmetic treatment, the number of Emtone sessions required for an ideal result can vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity of their concerns, the degree of skin laxity, and other factors. On average, patients usually undergo about 3 – 5 Emtone sessions to reach their desired goals. During your initial consultation at JEM Medspa in Elmhurst or Orland Park, IL, your knowledgeable provider will evaluate your skin, discuss your concerns, and recommend a treatment schedule that best fits your needs.
Where can you use Emtone?
The most common areas treated with nonsurgical Emtone skin tightening and cellulite reduction include:
- Upper legs
Does Emtone build muscle?
FDA-approved Emtone is primarily designed as a cellulite reduction and skin tightening treatment. If building muscle mass, enhancing muscle definition, and sculpting a more toned, muscular physique are your specific goals, ask your JEM Medspa provider about EMSCULPT®, another exciting nonsurgical treatment offered at both of our Chicago-area locations. In some cases, patients may even be suited to a combination of both EMSCULPT and Emtone.
Am I a good candidate for Emtone?
Most men and women who are healthy, at a stable weight, and are frustrated with the appearance of cellulite can be considered for nonsurgical skin tightening and cellulite reduction with Emtone. While Emtone can be used on people of almost any age and skin type, patients with less severe skin laxity or loose skin typically see the best results.
The best way to determine with certainty whether Emtone – or perhaps another treatment – is most likely to help get the tighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin you’ve always wanted is to be evaluated by a highly experienced, skilled, and knowledgeable provider.
