Get rid of cellulite and improve your skin tone
If you suffer with cellulite and are embarrassed by the appearance of lumps and dimples on your skin on your thighs or buttocks, we can help with an innovative treatment called EMTONE that uses revolutionary technology to eliminate all the main causes of cellulite effectively, non-invasively and with no downtime. It is also effective for addressing loose skin on the stomach so is the perfect mummy makeover, as well as on the arms.
Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. It is estimated that in excess of 80% of women will experience cellulite at some point in their lives.
There are five main causes of cellulite dimples: loss of skin elasticity due to deteriorating elastin and collagen fibres, enlarged fat chambers, metabolic waste retention, poor blood flow, and the fibrous bands (septae) that pull down skin, causing fat to bulge and cellulite dimples to form.
Genetics, diet, age, hormones, and lifestyle factors also play a part.
The EMTONE Treatment
EMTONE addresses these five main root causes of cellulite and does not just suppress the symptoms. EMTONE technology simultaneously delivers both thermal and mechanical energy and it is this synergistic emission of Monopolar Radiofrequency and Targeted Pressure Energy that leads to 59% greater increase in collagen, 64% greater increase in elastin and 44% greater increase in the skin dermis – than consecutive application of both energies.
EMTONE’s radiofrequency energy warms the skin to 108–111ºF, the temperature at which collagen undergoes structural changes that tighten existing collagen fibres and stimulate new collagen production, resulting in skin tightening and firming. At the same time, the EMTONE device emits acoustic waves that stimulate the skin, boosting circulation while reducing the fluid and waste retention that contributes to the bumpy appearance of cellulite. This means you not only see the difference, but you can actually feel it.
During your initial consultation we will devise an individual treatment plan based on your needs. Most patients undergo 4 treatments, scheduled once or twice a week. A treatment typically takes about 20 minutes depending on the treated area.
In terms of the treatment itself, the most common perception of the therapy is that it is similar to a hot stone massage with intense mechanical vibrations. The treatment is performed in a relaxing lying-down position. We apply a conductive lotion, to help the EMTONE handpiece move easily over your skin, and place a grounding pad on your back, to safely deliver the radiofrequency energy. We then glide the EMTONE handpiece over your skin, which will feel warm as the tissue temperature rises, but the continual movement of the handpiece and an automatic-shutoff safety feature ensures that it won’t become too hot or uncomfortable. You’ll also feel intense mechanical vibrations.
There is no downtime, and you will be able to resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.
