Dr. Melanie Carreon is a board-certified physician proudly serving Seguin, TX and the surrounding areas with cutting-edge solutions to their aesthetic concerns. Cellulite is a common complaint that is caused by many factors, including rigid collagen fibers and decreased skin elasticity. But Emtone, a nonsurgical, cellulite-reducing technology, treats the condition by combining applied pressure and radiofrequency energy. Unlike any other product on the market, the synergistic effect that Emtone has on cellulite is currently unparalleled. At LCS Medical Spa, we remain committed to offering the most effective nonsurgical technologies available to help our patients achieve their ultimate cosmetic goals. To schedule your Emtone procedure, contact our facility today.
Anyone seeking skin tightening or mild body contouring of stubborn areas of fat without surgery may benefit from Emtone. Clinical studies have also demonstrated Emtone’s usefulness in treating looseness of the skin or skin tightening.
Emtone improves skin laxity, which typically develops in patients in their 30s-50s. Patients with relatively good skin elasticity or “spring back” respond more readily to treatment. Younger patients may have more dramatic responses to Emtone treatment. Patients with poor skin texture may have more modest results or require more frequent treatments.
This noninvasive, cellulite-reducing procedure is an ideal procedure for any patient experiencing cellulite on their body that they wish to reduce or eliminate. The most common areas treated with Emtone include the buttocks, upper or lower thigh, abdomen, and hips. If you have attempted other nonsurgical cellulite treatments on these areas without positive outcomes, you are likely a candidate for Emtone. Patients should be in good overall health with manageable expectations for the outcome of their procedure. During a consultation at our Seguin, TX facility, Dr. Carreon will create a treatment plan and ensure that you are a good candidate for Emtone before scheduling your session.
Once your treatment plan is created, Dr. Carreon will explain how many treatments will be necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals. During your sessions, you will lie down comfortably in our minor procedures area while the handheld device is applied to your desired treatment area. Emtone is noninvasive, nonsurgical, and safe, which means that you will not experience pain and will be able to return to your normal daily activities when your procedure is finished. During your treatment, as radiofrequency energy and applied pressure work together, fat cells will be reduced and your skin smoothed, addressing two of the causes of cellulite.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Most of our patients compare their Emtone treatment to a deep tissue massage. While your skin may be red where the applicator made contact with the treatment area, you will not need to rest or take any extra healing measures during your recovery. Many patients notice immediate results while some individuals note optimal results around two months post-procedure. Follow-up treatments are recommended in six-month intervals to protect and improve your results. If Dr. Carreon has planned for additional treatments, you will be able to schedule the next session before you leave our facility.
