Unveiling Confidence: Tackling Cellulite, Skin Laxity and Muscle Tone for Summer Confidence

As the warmth of summer approaches bringing with it the anticipation of sundresses, shorts, and swimsuits, I often hear concerns from women about cellulite, skin laxity and decreased muscle tone. Though very common, these potentially confidence damaging conditions stem from various factors such as aging, genetics and lifestyle choices. This post is intended to address these concerns and to offer effective treatments and therapies. A few of these treatments include EmSculpt, EmTone, body Sculptra and Semaglutide therapy.


Cellulite, characterized by dimpled skin and common on the thighs and buttocks, can be frustrating. Despite being a natural occurrence that affects 80-90 percent of women, it contributes to negative body image and decreased self confidence. EmTone, is a non-invasive treatment designed to tighten skin and treat cellulite on almost any area of the body. As EmTone emits a combined radio frequency and targeted pressure energy, there is a synergistic effect that releases the fibrous bands responsible for cellulite and promotes collagen and elastin which leads to skin tightening. We recommend this treatment twice a week for 3 weeks for a total of 6 treatments.

Skin Laxity:

Loss of skin firmness and elasticity, known as skin laxity, is a natural part of the aging process. However, it can be accelerated by factors such as sun exposure and fluctuations in weight. Body Sculptra, is another innovative solution that involves injecting collagen-stimulating filler to restore volume and tighten the skin, helping to address sagging areas and improve overall skin texture. This product is frequently used in the crepey skin above the knees, thighs, arms and glutes. Studies of skin biopsies, performed at 13 weeks, show an increase of 66% collagen production and a longevity of at least 24 months.

Decreased Muscle Tone:

Weakening of muscles, especially in areas like the abdomen and buttocks, can impact both appearance and quality of life. The abdomen and buttocks are muscle groups that are very important contributors to core strength. As these muscles become weak, our core strength decreases, potentially leading to back pain and impaired balance. EmSculpt Neo is a body contouring device that provides, muscle building, fat reduction and skin tightening in a single 30 minute treatment. Emsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to induce powerful muscle contraction, promoting muscle tone and strength. 

Weight Loss:

For patients needing help with weight loss, we prescribe semaglutide and tirzepatide as part of our comprehensive weight loss program. These medications belong to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. These drugs work by mimicking the effects of the hormone GLP-1, which is naturally produced in the body. GLP-1 helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release and reducing glucagon secretion. Additionally, GLP-1 slows down gastric emptying and promotes satiety, leading to decreased food intake and weight loss. Alongside diet and exercise, these medications can help our patients achieve and maintain a healthier weight.

At Aesthetic Alchemy our range of treatments is designed to empower women to feel confident and embrace their bodies during the summer months and throughout the rest of the year. After completing an initial treatment regimen of Emsulpt or EmTone, I highly recommend taking advantage of our monthly membership plan in which treatments can be continued every month. These plans start at a very affordable rate of $159/ month. EmTone, EmSculpt and body Sculptra are all part of a comprehensive approach to aesthetic enhancement tailored to meet individual needs and achieve natural looking results. As summer approaches, the desire to feel confident in summer clothes is universal. By embracing innovative treatments like EmTone, EmSculpt and body Sculptra, women can enhance their natural beauty and step into summer with newfound confidence.
