From the team at Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers Pompano Beach, congratulations on your weight loss! Losing excess pounds is something to be proud of, and it’s time to enjoy the boost in self-confidence and a reduced risk of many diseases.
At the same time, losing significant amounts of weight can sometimes leave you with loose skin or more noticeable cellulite. In fact, many of our patients in Pompano Beach, Florida, ask our experts how they can build on their hard work and reveal their best body after their weight loss achievement.
One of our favorite tools is non-invasive EMTONE®. This therapy uses two types of energy to smooth away cellulite and improve skin laxity (looseness) — no scalpels or needles are required! Keep reading to learn more about how this treatment can help you reveal your best body.
EMTONE is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy and mechanical energy (pressure wave) to give you a visible improvement in the appearance of cellulite while also boosting the appearance of your skin.
The treatment emits both RF energy and pressure at the same time. This warms the deeper layers of your skin, changing the size of fat chambers and remodeling your collagen fibers. It also improves blood flow and helps remove cellular waste, further shrinking fat cells.
In the weeks and months after your treatment, new collagen forms in tighter, firmer bands. This reduces the visible appearance of cellulite.
At Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers Pompano Beach, we use FDA-cleared EMTONE on most areas of the body affected by loose skin and cellulite, including your thighs, buttocks, knees, upper arms, and belly.
EMTONE sessions are quick (usually 10-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area) and don’t require any anesthesia. Your Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers Pompano Beach provider applies a special lotion that moisturizes your skin and helps conduct the energy.
Then, we apply the EMTONE handpiece in a circular motion over the treatment area. Most people describe a warm sensation, similar to a hot stone massage. But the safety precautions in the device ensure your skin never gets overheated or uncomfortable.
Since there’s no downtime, you’re free to go about your daily activities after your session. You might notice your skin appears pink or feels warm for a few minutes, but this generally resolves quickly.
Everyone’s treatment protocol is different depending on personal needs. That said, most people receive a series of four treatments performed twice a week over a period of two weeks. Your Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers Pompano Beach provider may recommend periodic maintenance or “touch-up” treatments for optimal results.
Because EMTONE works by boosting your body’s collagen production and improving blood and tissue circulation, you won’t see noticeable results immediately. It takes time for tighter and firmer collagen fibers to replace existing collagen cells.
Some people see results in the first week, but most patients tell us they see noticeable results developing about two weeks after treatment, with optimal results appearing in the following months.
