Emtone – Radiofrequency Cellulite Reduction


Cellulite affects 90% of women and can be bothersome to some to the point that it impacts clothing choices and self-esteem. Sun damage, body fat, skin thickness, the body’s lymphatic system, and natural skin aging all play a role in the development of this potentially bothersome condition.
Topical radiofrequency treatments to reduce the appearance of stubborn cellulite have been proven in clinical studies to be safe and effective for years, and that’s why Dr. Hsieh is proud to be able to offer her patients the latest innovation in cellulite reduction, Emtone, as part of her non-surgical body contouring suite at Vibrance BPC!


● Emtone is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal (radiofrequency) and mechanical energy (acoustic wave therapy) to treat all major contributing factors to cellulite! According to the manufacturer of the device, BTL, this combination of the two modalities is 64% more effective than a standalone treatment for building elastin, and 59% more effective than a standalone treatment for building collagen!● The radiofrequency handpiece delivers gentle heat to the skin, heating the targeted area to a therapeutic temperature causing an increase in collagen and elastin production resulting in skin tightening!● The Emtone device also emits a mechanical, acoustic wave, energy, designed to disrupt the skin, boost circulation, and encourage the lymphatic system to drain collections of fluid that are one of the underlying causes of cellulite!● Emtone can also be used anywhere on the body to tighten mild to moderate sagging skin, including lax abdominal skin!● The duration of one Emtone treatment session is about 20 minutes which is faster than older radiofrequency technologies, meaning we can help you treat your stubborn cellulite on your lunch break and get you back to your day faster!


  • How many treatments are required?

    It’s recommended to have between 4-6 Emtone treatments over a span of 2 weeks for optimal results. During your consultation Dr. Hsieh will make an individualized recommendation for you based on your own unique anatomy and aesthetic goals! Each Emtone treatment session will last about 20 minutes.

  • What does an Emtone treatment feel like?

    Most patients report that the treatment feels like a hot stone massage, which is quite comfortable and even relaxing to some patients. Our team will apply a conductive moisturizing lotion prior to beginning the treatment and your skin may feel warm during portions of the treatment session, but the continuous movement of the Emtone handpiece and the automatic shut-off feature of the device (based on target skin temperature) ensure that this is a tolerable treatment. You may also experience some intense mechanical vibrations as the acoustic wave portion of the treatment begins.

  • Is there any downtime after an Emtone treatment?

    No! You can immediately resume daily activity after your treatment. Most patients report that their treated area remained flushed (red) for an hour or so after their treatment, and that is a good sign because it means that the skin has reached its therapeutic temperature goal! The treated area may also be sensitive to the touch for the first few days following your treatment.

  • When will I see results?

    Like other radiofrequency technologies such as truSculpt ID, most patients report seeing improvement after just one treatment, with results that build over time. Peak results are seen three months out!

  • Will I need any “touch-up” treatments?

    Follow-up sessions following your initial Emtone treatment package are recommended, and this will be discussed in your initial consultation based on your unique anatomy.

  • Who is a good candidate for Emtone cellulite reduction?

    Adult women looking for a safe and effective way to treat stubborn cellulite and tighten mild to moderate lax skin on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, and butt can benefit from an Emtone treatment package!

  • Can Emtone be combined with other non-surgical body contouring treatments?

    Yes! Emtone can be used in conjunction with other treatments in our body contouring suite like Emsculpt, truSculpt ID, Vanquish ME, and Agnes and Scarlet RF microneedling!
