Cellulite Reduction Q & A

What is cellulite?

The term cellulite refers to dimpled, lumpy sections of skin. Doctors believe skin develops this appearance when fat cells that live just below the surface of the skin push themselves into the outermost layer of skin.

Cellulite is extremely common, especially in women. Between 80% and 90% of all women experience cellulite at some point in their life. Most often, you see cellulite on your buttocks and thighs, but it can develop in other places, too.

There’s no exact cause of cellulite, but you’re more likely to develop it if you:

  • Smoke cigarettes
  • Are over the age of 25
  • Eat excess amounts of fat, salt, and carbohydrates
  • Don’t exercise
  • Sit or stand for long periods of time during the day
  • Are overweight

Note that, though your chances are higher if you meet these criteria, you don’t have to be overweight or unhealthy to have cellulite.

How can you reduce cellulite and tighten your skin?

At her practice, Dr. Seman offers cellulite reduction and skin tightening via the EMTONE™ device and the Thermi250™ body rejuvenation system. 

The EMTONE is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal and mechanical energy to treat all major contributing factors to cellulite. 

The Thermi250 body rejuvenation system works using radiofrequency technology that heats the skin and reduces cellulite.

How does EMTONE achieve skin tightening?

EMTONE tightens skin using a combination of radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy. Together these technologies can treat problem areas in the:  

  • Arms
  • Abdominals
  • Buttocks 
  • Thighs

EMTONE is ideal for anyone looking for non-invasive cellulite reduction and overall improvement in skin appearance.



How long is each session? How many sessions do I need?

During the first visit, your provider helps design your individual treatment plan. Most patients undergo four treatments, scheduled once or twice a week. A treatment typically takes about 20 minutes depending on the treated area.

What does the procedure feel like? Is it painful?

The therapy is most commonly compared to a hot stone massage with intense mechanical vibrations. The treatment is performed while you are relaxed and lying down.

How fast will I see results? Is there any downtime?

Patients have reported improvements after a single treatment session. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few months. With no downtime, you may resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.

How does the Thermi250 system reduce cellulite?

The Thermi250 reduces cellulite using heat energy. To deliver this heat energy, Dr. Seman sweeps the handpiece’s electrode endpoint across the body, where the energy extends deep into the tissue.

With Thermi250, you can get cellulite reduction treatment that’s:

  • Pain-free
  • Precise
  • Quick

The Thermi250 device features temperature control and monitoring, so Dr. Seman can deliver gentle and accurate temperatures that get the job done. It also delivers uniform heating to deeper depths than similar radiofrequency devices so your results look better and last longer.

A specific area on the body takes about five to seven minutes to treat. During treatment, you may feel some heat and vibration.

When will I see results from Thermi250 cellulite reduction?

Using Thermi250, you can expect to see smoother skin within two to three months, which is about how long it takes new collagen to grow.

With this treatment, patience pays off. How many treatments you require depends on your desired results and how much cellulite you have.
