Cellulite is formed by fibrous connective cords which anchor the skin to underlying muscles. Between the skin and the muscle are fat deposits. As those fat deposits grow, they can push up against the skin, causing the fibrous connective cords to pull down—creating the infamous cellulite dimpling.
Various things contribute to the appearance of cellulite. They can include:
- Age-related degradation of collagen and elastin
- Enlargement of fat cells
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Fluid retention
- Poor circulation
- Hereditary factors
- Hormonal changes
- And more.
Emtone is a simple, short, and painless procedure that addresses the appearance of cellulite. The thermal energy delivered deep into the skin may produce a feeling of warmth, but most patients feel no discomfort.
The lubricating gel also allows the hand-held Emtone device to glide easily across the skin of the treatment area. There is no recovery or downtime needed after an Emtone session.
Emtone works best on women and men who are near their ideal weight. Also, patients with better skin elasticity respond to the treatment better than those with more severe loose or sagging skin. Emtone proves more dramatic results on younger patients, though the cellulite reduction and skin tightening benefits can also help more mature patients. Emtone is an excellent treatment for stubborn cellulite experienced by body contouring patients.
