WHY DOES CELLULITE APPEAR?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a clear answer to this question. Cellulite is associated with connective fibrous bands that tie up the skin to the muscles that lie underneath and are surrounded by fat tissue. When the fat cells pile up they go up to the surface of the skin and long, strong connective fibers pull the skin down. This is when a dimpling or uneven surface of the skin is created.
So, gaining weight can be connected to getting more cellulite, but slim people can also have it. Cellulite could be associated with genetics – it determines a person’s skin texture and structure and body type. Hormonal changes in the body can contribute to cellulite appearance also. If people live inactive lives they are more prone to cellulite but some fit people also struggle with it.
Mild cellulite is seen only if people pinch the skin in the area where they have it. But cellulite can be severe and even noticeable with the eye – it makes the skin look rumpled and bumpy.
It comes down to this – everyone can have cellulite, women a bit more than men and no matter how much people exercise or keep a strict diet it still prevails. People can even turn to massages and anti-cellulite creams, and sometimes they manage to reduce it a little bit, but sometimes they don’t.
EMTONE® ALWAYS WORKS
EMTONE® is a perfect solution for reducing cellulite. It is an advanced cellulite treatment device that combines monopolar radiofrequency and pressure wave therapy at the same time. EMTONE® applicator delivers safe electrical energy to the skin and emits waves that stimulate the skin. During the treatment, a grounding pad is placed usually on the patient’s back to ensure the safe emission of the RF.
Radiofrequency energy travels from the tip of the applicator to the skin and heats it to 44 degrees. This temperature is crucial because it triggers the structural changes in collagen underneath the skin. Collagen starts to build up and the skin texture gets improved and smoother. Also, the skin gets tighter and cellulite gets reduced. So, it rejuvenates the tissue, stimulates collagen production and smooths, tightens, and firms skin.
The simultaneous emission of both thermal and mechanical energy has a greater impact on connective tissue and fights against cellulite much better than when the energies are emitted separately.
WHAT IS THE SECRET BEHIND THESE TWO ENERGIES?
Any type of energy that is used in medical treatments can produce heat. But, the benefit of radiofrequency is that it doesn’t damage the surface of the skin while it is emitted. It only heats the deep layers of the skin and triggers the production of new collagen and elastin which in turn smooths and tightens the skin. It is suitable for all skin types and textures and it can be even used on tanned skin.
On the other hand, mechanical or targeted pressure energy causes vibrations and pressure that disrupts the fat cells and those fibrous bands that pull down the skin. These vibrations also improve circulation and reduce the metabolic waste and fluids that tend to build up under the skin and contribute to the creation of cellulite.
The result – the skin becomes smooth and tight because cellulite dimples are eliminated.
BENEFITS OF EMTONE® TREATMENTS
Patients who are struggling with unattractive cellulite dimples can really take advantage of this advanced skin tightening procedure and achieve amazing results.
EMTONE® is a fast and effective way of reducing the cellulite tissue underneath the skin and leaving the skin smooth and tight. The EMTONE® applicator gently heats the skin on the treated area and in just 20 minutes triggers the production of new collagen. After 4 sessions of EMTONE® treatments, the treated body area is smooth all without surgery, scars and downtime.
EMTONE® is the first and only device that combines two types of energies in one treatment simultaneously and provides much better results than when treated separately. RF and targeted pressure energy address every element that causes the appearance of cellulite and significantly reduce them.
