Many people think cellulite is a "fat problem," but the cottage cheese-like dimples that tend to develop on thighs, buttocks, and elsewhere are actually the result of several different factors. Emtone™ cellulite treatment at Portland's Waldorf Center addresses all of them, using two forms of specialized energy to reduce the appearance of the dimples for smoother skin. The dual effect generates results not possible from either solitary option. It can be used on the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
Emtone™ cellulite treatment is made by the same company as EMSCULPT®, a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that makes use of high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy. Both devices have been rigorously tested and cleared by the FDA for cosmetic use.
The Waldorf Center team prioritizes more than just safe and effective treatments that lead to beautiful results. We also put an emphasis on patient education and understanding. Knowledge of what causes cosmetic problems, as well as what specific actions correct them, is an important element in any treatment plan.

Most simply put, cellulite is the result of connective bands pulling down on the skin, creating a small, visible depression. While this condition can develop in anyone, it most commonly appears in women and is associated with excess fat. That's because large fat cells push the skin outward, creating more tension against the connective bands, known as septae. Other factors that make cellulite apparent include agerelated loss of skin elasticity, poor blood flow, and the accumulation of metabolic waste below the skin.
The Emtone™ cellulite treatment employs both targeted pressure energy and radiofrequency to relieve the tension by encouraging fresh collagen growth and improved skin elasticity, reduction of fat cells, the freeing up of waste to be flushed out, and improved circulation. Together, these changes allow the skin to ease up in areas where it is puckered.
*Individual results may vary.
A consultation at The Waldorf Center is designed to ensure each patient is heard and that the right treatment is being selected. Good candidates for Emtone™ cellulite treatment are those who want to address the dimpling without the use of an invasive device and who want to improve the overall look of their skin in the targeted areas.
Patients lie face down for this treatment, which has been likened to getting a hot stone massage accompanied by strong vibrations. The best results typically require four sessions scheduled once or twice a week. Though treatment time varies depending on the area or areas addressed, a single session can be expected to generally last around 20 minutes.
There is no downtime necessary after Emtone™ cellulite treatment.
Some improvement may be visible right away, but smoother skin will continue to develop over the following months as collagen and elastin levels rise and tension continues to ease.
Studies have shown a 90 percent patient satisfaction rate after an Emtone™ cellulite treatment.
For contouring the buttocks and thighs, CoolSculpting® can reduce fat without surgery, while EMSCULPT® and CoolTone™ can boost muscle tone. Surgical options include liposuction for fat reduction, as well as thigh lifts and lower body lifts to tighten sagging tissue.
I was displeased with my breast size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging and Dr. Waldorf concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!Learn More
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. Waldorf have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. The surgery & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.Learn More
