If you scrutinize your reflection in the mirror and cringe at the sight of rimples and dimples of cellulite on your butt, thighs, and elsewhere, know you’re not alone. Ninety percent of women have cellulite. And most of us hate it! If you wouldn’t dream of wearing light-colored yoga pants (Black, anyone?) and those cute cut-off shorts that look great on all your friends are not even a consideration, chances are cellulite is the issue. If only there were a targeted, non-invasive treatment to smooth and tighten that dreaded dimply skin.
Well, there is! In fact, those girls strutting light-gray yoga pants at the gym and Daisy Dukes around town may already know about it. If you’re been diligent about working out, hoping it will eliminate cellulite, sorry, it just doesn’t work that way. If you’ve tried cellulite creams, needling, and massage and been woefully disappointed, let me cut to the chase and introduce you to EMTONE, the first and currently only device that simultaneously delivers thermal and mechanical energy to treat the root causes of cellulite.
What are those? Basically, increased cumulative sun damage, body fat, skin laxity, and loss of integrity and thickness of the skin, as we age, all lead to what we call cellulite. That’s why Emtone addresses all those things at once.
Women are finding Emtone treatment to be:
- 64% more effective than stand-alone treatment for building elastin
- 59% more effective than stand-alone treatment for building collagen
- 50% faster than stand-alone therapies
- With a 90% patient satisfaction rate
“During a patient’s first visit, I design an individual treatment plan,” said Dr. Anna Toker who’s offering Emtone to her Arlington-area patients. “Most of my patients undergo four treatments, scheduled once or twice a week typically taking 20 minutes, depending on the treated area. Afterwards, they’re free to return to their normal activities.”
What are women saying about the treatment? “It feels similar to having a hot-stone massage with a good bit of vibration added in,” said one patient. “The treatment was performed while I was lying down and comfortable. It was a pleasant experience. My skin was tighter and smoother immediately afterward and continued to improve, over the next few months.”
If you’re tired of avoiding certain clothes because you’re worried about the appearance of cellulite, there’s finally a solution that’s quick, non-invasive, and can be targeted to the areas where you need it. It’s about time!
