Non-Surgical Cellulite Treatments to Tighten and Tone Skin in the Dallas Area

FDA-cleared Emtone from the Dallas area’s Dermatology Office of Dr. Ellen Turner is a revolutionary, energy-based treatment for cellulite, an extremely common skin condition that develops on more than 90 percent of women and some men. Cellulite can be described as dimpled or bumpy areas on the thighs and buttocks, giving them a cottage cheese or orange-peel texture.

People of all body shapes and BMIs can have cellulite, including those who are slim and healthy. Although it occurs most frequently on the buttocks and thighs, cellulite may also appear on the breasts, lower abdomen, and upper arms. Although the underlying cause of cellulite is not yet fully understood, it’s associated with the way fibrous connective cords of collagen in the skin pull down tightly due to tension caused by “crowded” fat cells, causing dimpling on the surface.

What is Emtone?

Cellulite is usually very difficult to treat, and topical products may be mostly ineffective. Emtone from BTL Aesthetics™ is a breakthrough, non-invasive cellulite treatment that applies two different types of energy—thermal monopolar radiofrequency and mechanical targeted pressure energy—at the same time to target the root causes of this harmless but frustrating skin condition.

Emtone addresses five factors that are believed to make dimpling worse: weakened collagen and elastin fibers, enlarged pockets of fat, metabolic waste retention, poor blood circulation, and tightened bands of collagen, known septae.

The device works by warming tissue in the treatment area to a temperature of 108º to 111ºF, stimulating increased production of collagen and elastin to make skin thicker, smoother, and firmer, thereby minimizing the appearance of mild to moderate cellulite. Emtone can be used on any areas where cellulite occurs, such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, knees, and upper arms.

Am I A Good Candidate for Emtone?

Patients with all body types, BMIs, skin types, and skin tones are ideal candidates for Emtone. It’s suitable for anyone who is seeking a non-invasive method to improve cellulite and the overall quality of their skin. However, patients who have severe skin laxity may not be eligible.

The Emtone Procedure

This is a fast, simple treatment that lasts for just 20 minutes on average and causes little to no discomfort. The patients lie down throughout the duration of the treatment, and no incisions or anesthesia are required.

Expect to feel a warm sensation similar to a relaxing hot stone massage, along with some intense mechanical vibrations as the handpiece glides over the skin.

What Results Can Emtone Provide?

Unlike many other cellulite solutions, there is no downtime required after Emtone, so patients can resume their normal day-to-day activities right after treatment. Some results will be noticeable after just one session, and the skin will gradually look better as months pass and collagen levels increase.

To optimize results, patients may be advised to schedule four treatment sessions that are completed within two weeks. Clinical studies show that dimpling improves for more than 90 percent of patients within 12 weeks of the final treatment. Follow-up maintenance treatments will be necessary to preserve the results, since collagen breaks down over time and the dimpling can eventually return.

What Other Cellulite Treatments Are Available in Dallas?

In addition to Emtone, Dr. Ellen Turner’s Dallas-based dermatology office also provides Qwo® treatments for cellulite, injected directly into dimples on the buttocks. The formula contains enzymes that release the tightened bands of collagen that contribute to the severity of dimpling.

Emtone is complementary to Emsculpt Neo®, a fat-reduction treatment that builds muscle and smooths skin for a more toned appearance.
