EMTONE Results

As your body produces new collagen fibers in the weeks and months after EMTONE, you’ll notice an improvement in your cellulite and your skin’s texture and tone. Patients typically experience the most noticeable results after 12 weeks.

The Technology: RF Energy and Targeted Pressure Energy

EMTONE combines two types of energy: monopolar radiofrequency (RF) and targeted pressure energy. This technology addresses the underlying causes of cellulite, such as collagen and elastin breakdown, fat cell enlargement, and reduced blood flow. The result is improved skin texture, firmness, and elasticity.

The Science: Skin Tightening and Cellulite Reduction

The RF energy heats the skin and underlying tissues, stimulating collagen and elastin production, while the targeted pressure energy helps break down fibrous bands and improve blood flow.

Together, these energies work to smooth out and tighten lax, dimpled skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a Good Candidate for EMTONE in St. Louis?

EMTONE is suitable for individuals who want to improve their cellulite and skin texture, firmness, and elasticity. The ideal candidate has relatively good skin elasticity and mild to moderate cellulite. Patients should also be in good overall health.

Who Is Not an Ideal Candidate for EMTONE Treatment?

EMTONE may not be suitable for individuals with severe cellulite, skin infections or irritations, or medical conditions that may affect the treatment’s effectiveness.

Is EMTONE Treatment Painful?

EMTONE treatment is generally well-tolerated and not considered painful by most individuals. During the EMTONE procedure, you may experience a sensation of warmth and gentle pressure, as the device combines radiofrequency energy and targeted pressure energy to treat the targeted area. Some individuals describe the sensation as similar to a hot stone massage.

How Should I Prepare for EMTONE Treatment?

Proper preparation before your EMTONE treatment can help you have a smooth and comfortable experience. First, we always recommend making sure you fully understand the treatment process. At your consultation, we will go over everything in detail and answer any questions you might have.

In addition, we advise patients to take the following steps at home before treatment:

  1. Shave any hair in the area: If the treatment area has hair, shave it within 24 hours of your appointment to ensure better contact between the EMTONE device and your skin.
  2. Remove any topical products: On the day of your treatment, cleanse the treatment area and ensure it is free of any lotions, creams, oils, or other topical products.
  3. Comfortable clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment to minimize any potential discomfort from pressure on the area after your treatment.
Are There Any Activities I Should Do or Avoid After EMTONE?

Although no downtime is needed to recover after EMTONE, there are a few recommendations to keep in mind following an EMTONE treatment to promote optimal results:

    1. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water after your treatment, as this can help flush out toxins released during the procedure and promote better overall results.
    2. Avoid excessive heat: While mild exercise is generally safe after EMTONE treatment, you should avoid exposing the treated area to excessive heat, such as hot tubs, saunas or sunbathing, for at least 24 hours. Extreme heat can cause discomfort or exacerbate post-treatment swelling and redness.
    3. Gentle massage: If advised by your provider, you can perform gentle massages on the treated area to promote blood circulation, facilitate the healing process and enhance your treatment results.

Avoid tight clothing: Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing on the treated area for 24 hours following your treatment. This can help minimize irritation or discomfort.

  1. Skincare: Use gentle skincare products and avoid using any harsh or abrasive scrubs, exfoliants, or chemical peels on the treated area for at least 48 hours.

In general, EMTONE treatment has minimal restrictions on post-treatment activities. However, always follow any specific aftercare instructions from your provider to ensure the best possible results. If you experience any unusual symptoms or have concerns about your recovery, do not hesitate to contact The Lifestyle Center for guidance.

How Long Do EMTONE Treatment Results Last?

EMTONE can provide long-lasting improvements in skin texture, firmness, and elasticity. Patients generally achieve results that last for several months up to a year. However, the longevity of results may vary from person to person.

What Factors Affect How Long the Results Last?

The longevity of EMTONE results can be influenced by various individual factors, including:

  1. Age: Aging causes our skin to naturally lose elasticity and produce less collagen. Older individuals may find that the results of their EMTONE treatment do not last as long as the results achieved by younger individuals.
  2. Skin condition: The initial condition of your skin can also impact the longevity of your EMTONE results. Those with healthier skin, good elasticity and fewer signs of aging may experience longer-lasting results compared to individuals with more significant skin concerns.
  3. Lifestyle factors: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial for prolonging the benefits of EMTONE treatment. Factors such as poor diet, smoking, lack of exercise and excessive sun exposure can accelerate skin aging and negatively impact the longevity of your EMTONE results.
  4. Genetics: Genetic factors can play a role in determining the overall effectiveness and longevity of EMTONE treatment. Some individuals may be more prone to cellulite development or experience a faster decline in skin quality due to their genetic predispositions.
  5. Hormonal factors: Hormonal fluctuations, such as those experienced during pregnancy and menopause, can affect the skin’s structure and elasticity. These changes may influence the duration of EMTONE results.
  6. Weight fluctuations: Significant weight gain or loss can impact the skin’s appearance and elasticity, potentially shortening the duration of EMTONE results. Maintaining a stable, healthy weight can help prolong the benefits of the treatment.
How Can I Maintain My EMTONE Results?

The results of EMTONE treatment are not permanent, but they can be long-lasting with proper maintenance. Following the initial treatment series, follow-up sessions may be recommended every three to 12 months to maintain your results. Living a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, can also help prolong your EMTONE results.

Is EMTONE Treatment Safe?

EMTONE treatment is considered safe for most individuals. It is a non-invasive procedure with minimal side effects, and it has been FDA-approved for the treatment of cellulite and skin tightening.

However, always consult with an experienced provider before starting any treatment to ensure it is suitable for your specific needs and medical history.
