Emtone Q&A

What is Emtone?

Emtone is an FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment that combines mechanical massage with thermal energy to improve the appearance of cellulite nearly anywhere on the body. Unlike other non-invasive treatments, Emtone addresses the underlying causes of cellulite to deliver dramatic results that last.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite is the result of fat pushing up against the skin. Underneath the skin are connective cords that join the skin to muscle. Fat accumulates in between the cords and skin. Eventually, these fibrous cords begin to pull down, leading to a dimpling effect in the skin.

While cellulite is prevalent in most adults, it’s extremely common in women. This is especially true as women age and collagen production depletes. Collagen is a protein found in the connective tissues that give your skin a tight, youthful appearance. Without healthy levels of collagen, the skin starts to thin and sag.

How does Emtone work?

Emtone simultaneously emits radiofrequency energy and pressure to stimulate collagen production, encourage cell regeneration, promote blood circulation, and prevent fluid buildup in the treatment area. This combination helps the skin firm and tighten to substantially reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Which areas can Emtone treat?

Emtone is an effective cellulite treatment for your:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms


Safe for all skin types, Emtone is an ideal treatment for fit and healthy individuals who have good skin elasticity.

Can anybody try Emtone?

Emtone is not an alternative to liposuction or weight loss surgery. While the treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite, it cannot get rid of unwanted fat. Individuals who use Emtone should not be overweight or carry excess fat tissue.

What happens during Emtone treatments?

During your Emtone treatment, your provider places a grounding pad on your back to stabilize you. Next, they glide the handheld device over the treatment area. 

While you may experience a warming sensation, the treatment is not uncomfortable. The device contains a special shut-off feature that ensures your treatment is never too hot. Since each treatment only takes 20 minutes, you can resume your normal activities immediately after each session.

How many Emtone treatments will I need?

You may experience noticeable improvements in your skin tone and texture after the first session, but most patients need a series of treatments. Your provider may recommend one treatment per week for up to four weeks or longer. It takes about 3-4 months for new collagen to firm and tighten your skin for lasting results.
