Cellulite is one of the most common issues amongst women these days, and it truly doesn’t discriminate! Cellulite issues can appear on women, and even men, of almost any age, or size – according to a recent statistic, 90% of all women say they have some form of cellulite issues. And one of the worst things about cellulite is that treatment methods aren’t always the most cut and dry, and don’t always offer the cellulite reduction that we are after. However, at Long Island Dermatology, we now offer one of the most effective methods of non-invasive cellulite reduction around today, known as Emtone! The revolutionary Emtone offers patients the high level cellulite reduction they are after, with fewer side effects, downtime or risks than any other method of treatment. Using Emtone, countless patients, both men and women, have been able to drastically improve their cellulite issues, smooth out their skin, and look and feel younger in no time at all.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is an all too common issue amongst both men and women, most commonly affecting us as we age. Cellulite is made up of deposits of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, most commonly accumulating along the thighs, hips and buttock areas of women. They give an often puckered, and dimpled appearance to the skin, making it look loose, and unaesthetic over time, and causing unwanted issues along the skin’s surface. Cellulite is most commonly caused by an increased accumulation of sun damage, and body fat, and occurs as we age, and the skin loses its laxity and overall thickness integrity. While there are countless methods out there, claiming to offer relief from unwanted cellulite, few offer the benefits of Emtone, as well as the effectiveness.
What is Emtone?
Emtone is an ideal treatment for patients seeking out non-invasive cellulite reduction and looking to improve the overall appearance of their skin and its texture. Emtone is the first and only cellulite reduction device that works by simultaneously providing thermal and mechanical energy to the treatment area, and treating the major contributing factors to cellulite.
How Does Emtone Work?
Cellulite is a fairly common issue, and most prominent in women as they age, their skin loses its laxity and they accumulate unwanted fatty tissue. Cellulite is multi-factorial issue that occurs when the fibrous bands that run from the skin to the muscle through the fat, begin to be pulled downward and the fatty tissue pushes upwards. Emtone uses specialized radio frequency energy and targeted pressure energy to target this unwanted fatty cellulite tissue. When combined, these two factors offer patients a synergistic effect that works infinitely better than either method on its own.
How Long Does Emtone Treatment Last?
The fact is that like any other aesthetic enhancement method, Emtone is a highly individualized process, and every patient’s treatment with differ from the next. For the vast majority of patients, Emtone is done in four specific treatments, that are scheduled once or twice a week for a few weeks. A single treatment is fast and easy and can be done in about 20-30 minutes depending upon the specific patient and the treatment area.
What is an Emtone Treatment Like?
The Emtone device is similar to other aesthetic laser-like devices and the radio frequency energy is emitted through a specialized handheld device. The reactionary Emtone technology works through the simultaneous delivery of both thermal and mechanical energy, to provide an unmatched level of cellulite reduction. Many patients have likened the treatment to feeling similar to a hot stone massage, and its actually quite comfortable and some have even called it relaxing! One of the most common things patients say about Emtone is that there are strong, often intense, mechanical vibrations that are emitted through the handset as the patient is relaxing in a lying-down position.
How Long Will Results Take?
For the most part, patients are recommended to undergo at least four sessions of Emtone, in order to achieve the ideal cellulite reduction effects, However, many patients have also reported seeing results within only a single treatment session, with results continuously improving over the course of the next few months. One of the major benefits is that because Emtone is a non-invasive treatment, patients experience no downtime or long and drawn-out recovery period as they might using other methods of skin rejuvenation or cellulite reduction.
