What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a common issue that affects nearly 90 percent of women of all body shapes and sizes. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite has less to do with the number on your scale and more to do with structural changes that occur beneath the skin’s surface. The connective bands that provide support begin to stiffen and constrict with age, pulling down the skin and crowding the underlying fat cells. At the same time, excess interstitial fluid accumulates in the surrounding tissues, exacerbating the problem. The exact causes for this are unknown, but the result is a lumpy, uneven texture that gives the skin a dimpled appearance.

Cellulite is harmless, but it can negatively affect your self-esteem and stop you from wearing certain clothing. While it has the potential to occur almost anywhere on the body, it’s most commonly seen on the hips, legs, thighs, abdomen and buttocks. Since cellulite can be attributed to more than just fatty tissues, it can persist despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, making it one of the more frustrating problems for women of all ages, body types and fitness levels.

How is Cellulite Treated?

You’ve probably seen countless creams, lotions and ointments that claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite. While these may temporarily mask the problem, they’re often expensive and yield disappointing results. The most effective treatments are those that target all of the major underlying causes of cellulite, including the rigid connective bands, loss of elasticity and accumulation of excess fluid within the skin. Addressing these concerns produces more noticeable improvements that last longer than topical solutions, helping you achieve smoother, dimple-free skin you can feel confident about.

Introducing EMTONE by BTL

EMTONE targets cellulite by harnessing the power of radiofrequency energy and advanced mechanical massage that reaches deep beneath the skin. Together, these techniques target the enlarged fat cells and rigid connective fibers that create unwanted dimples, while simultaneously triggering the formation of new collagen. This creates a synergistic effect that has been found to provide greater cellulite reduction than either technology can achieve separately. It also helps prevent further dimpled in treated areas. EMTONE can be performed on its own, but many patients combine it with other body contouring procedures such as EMSCULPT NEO or Vanquish ME for more comprehensive results. As an EM-Suite provider, Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa offers a number of proven, noninvasive treatments.

If you’re considering EMTONE, this device provides numerous benefits, such as:

  • No surgery, incisions or needles
  • Painless application
  • No special fitness regimen required
  • High satisfaction rate
  • Long-lasting, visible results
  • No side effects or downtime
  • FDA-cleared for men and women

EMTONE treatments are also quick and easy, with each area taking about 20 minutes to complete. Most patients undergo a series of four to six sessions for optimal results, but this may vary according to the severity of your cellulite and your aesthetic goals. Our team will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Is EMTONE Right for Me?

EMTONE is suitable for most patients with mild to moderate cellulite in common problem areas. It is well-tolerated by all skin tones and isn’t restricted to a certain body type or size, although those closer to their fitness goals may see more dramatic improvements. EMTONE can also be used almost anywhere on the body, including the hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and waistline. Wherever you have stubborn cellulite, our team can help you eliminate unwanted dimples and achieve smoother contours with EMTONE.

What to Expect During Treatment

During your EMTONE appointment, you’ll be able to lie back and relax as your provider glides a handheld device directly over the skin in areas of concern. A gel will first be applied to reduce friction and ensure a smooth treatment process, but no anesthesia or numbing creams are used. You’ll feel a slight warming sensation and mild vibration as the device works to stimulate collagen production, loosen rigid connective tissues and improve lymphatic drainage in targeted areas. However, the process is completely painless. Afterward, you’ll be able to resume normal activities with no restrictions or downtime.

From start to finish, your EMTONE treatment can be completed in under a half-hour, but this may vary depending on the size and number of areas being addressed. Combining it with other nonsurgical body contouring solutions can also increase treatment time. Usually, patients return over the next few weeks for a series of four to six sessions for best results.

Results & Recovery

EMTONE is a nonsurgical treatment with no anesthesia, incisions or needles. That also means no downtime and little to no side effects after your appointment. At the most, you may experience some slight redness, itching or swelling where the device was applied, but these should be easily manageable and will subside quickly within the next few days. Because EMTONE uses radiofrequency energy and therapeutic vibrations to achieve its effects, it’s associated with no known adverse reactions and can be safely performed on patients of all ages, sizes and skin types.

You’ll be able to see an improvement after your first appointment, but the most noticeable results will develop after four to six treatment sessions. Your skin will look visibly firmer and smoother, with less cellulite and fewer dimples in treated areas. As the increased blood flow continues to promote lymphatic drainage and stimulate the production of new collagen, your results will get better over time. EMTONE provides long-lasting cellulite reduction, but you can prolong this effect with a healthy lifestyle and an occasional maintenance treatment.

If you have other concerns, such as stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, combining EMTONE with EMSCULPT NEO or Vanquish ME can further contour your body and deliver more comprehensive results. Ask our team about these other nonsurgical treatments during your consultation to learn how they can help you achieve your goals.

How EMTONE Works to Reduce Cellulite

EMTONE is the first device of its kind to simultaneously emit both radiofrequency energy and targeted pressure energy to treat cellulite. This powerful combination creates a synergistic effect to address the major underlying causes of cellulite more effectively than either technology on its own.

The monopolar radiofrequency energy heats the tissue in the treatment area, increasing blood flow and encouraging new collagen and elastin fiber production. This firms and tightens the skin to create a smoother surface appearance.

At the same time, the targeted pressure energy delivers mechanical vibrations to break up the rigid connective bands pulling down on the skin (fibrous septae), releasing the puckering effect. It also increases oxygen levels in the tissue to improve lymphatic drainage and reduce fluid accumulation and swelling that exacerbate the appearance of dimpling.

By addressing skin laxity, stiff septae and fluid retention simultaneously, EMTONE provides a comprehensive solution for improving the appearance of cellulite without invasive procedures or downtime. Over a series of sessions, the skin becomes firmer, smoother and more elastic for a noticeable dimple reduction that lasts.

Who Is a Good Candidate for EMTONE?

EMTONE is an excellent option for anyone with mild to moderate cellulite on their abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs. It is safe and effective for all skin types and tones and is suitable for adults of any age or fitness level.

While not a substitute for a healthy diet and active lifestyle, EMTONE can help smooth stubborn dimples that persist despite your best efforts. It’s beneficial for people who have tried topical creams and massages with little success or want an alternative to more invasive cellulite procedures.

You may be an ideal candidate for EMTONE if you:

  • Are close to your ideal body weight
  • Have visible cellulite you want to reduce
  • Want a noninvasive treatment with no downtime
  • Have realistic expectations

During your consultation at Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa, we will assess your concerns and goals during a consultation to determine if EMTONE is right for you and may recommend combining it with other treatments for more dramatic results.

The EMTONE Treatment Course

Most patients should expect to attend a series of four treatments about one week apart for optimal cellulite reduction with EMTONE.

Each EMTONE session takes about 20-30 minutes per treatment area. During the appointment, a gel will be applied to the skin, and the EMTONE device will glide over the area, emitting radiofrequency heat and mechanical vibrations. Most patients find the sensation tolerable and liken it to an intensive hot stone massage. No anesthesia or numbing is required.

After each session, you can resume all normal activities immediately, as there is no downtime with EMTONE. You may experience temporary warmth, redness or tingling in the treated area, but this typically subsides within a few hours.

While many patients report seeing improvements after a single treatment, results will become more noticeable after the 2nd or 3rd session, with continued improvement in the months following your final treatment. As your body produces new collagen and elastin and clears out fatty deposits and trapped fluids, your skin becomes firmer, smoother and more toned-looking in the treatment area.

Patients can expect up to a 50% reduction in the appearance of cellulite after an entire treatment course. These results can last a year or more, and occasional maintenance sessions can help prolong the effects long-term.

The Advantages of EMTONE Over Other Cellulite Treatments

There’s no shortage of cellulite treatments today, from topical creams to invasive procedures. But EMTONE stands out as one of the most influential and convenient solutions available, offering several advantages over other options:


EMTONE is entirely noninvasive, meaning no incisions, needles or anesthesia. This makes it safer and more comfortable than surgical procedures or injectable treatments.

No Downtime

With EMTONE, zero downtime is required. You can return to work, exercise, and all normal activities immediately after your session without restriction.

Quick Sessions

Each EMTONE treatment takes only about 20-30 minutes per area, making it easy to fit into even the busiest schedules. Your entire treatment course can be completed in about a month.


Most patients find EMTONE treatments very tolerable, describing the sensation as an intense warm massage. No numbing or pain medication is necessary.

Safe for All Skin Types

EMTONE is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, unlike other cellulite treatments that cannot be used on darker skin. There is no risk of burning or hyperpigmentation.

Long-Lasting Results

With EMTONE, results can last a year or more with proper maintenance. This is significantly longer than most topical treatments or massage techniques that only provide temporary improvement.


EMTONE can reduce cellulite in multiple body areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs. It can also be easily combined with other treatments for more comprehensive results.

Backed by Science

EMTONE is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite using radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy. Its efficacy is supported by extensive research and studies.

If you’re looking for a convenient, comfortable, and effective way to smooth stubborn cellulite without surgery or downtime, EMTONE may be right for you.

Other Treatments to Enhance EMTONE Results

While EMTONE is a highly effective standalone treatment for reducing cellulite, it pairs well with other noninvasive body contouring treatments for patients looking for more comprehensive results. At Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa, we often recommend combining EMTONE with EMSCULPT NEO for the ultimate smoothing and toning treatment.

EMSCULPT NEO is an innovative device that simultaneously emits radiofrequency energy to destroy fat cells and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate intense muscle contractions. This builds and strengthens muscle fibers while permanently reducing stubborn fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise.

When used together, EMTONE and EMSCULPT NEO provide a synergistic approach to body contouring by improving the appearance of cellulite, enhancing muscle definition and destroying excess fat all at once. This can provide more dramatic results than either treatment for the abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs.

Your Lucienne provider will listen to your concerns and goals during your consultation to recommend the best treatment plan. We’ll help determine if you may benefit from EMTONE alone or with other noninvasive solutions for your most confident body yet.
