About ACOUSTIC wave therapy against cellulitis
This FDA approved therapy also called shock wave therapy is the latest and most innovative treatment for cellulitis.
¿How does it work?
This therapy uses high energy acoustic pulses to treat cellulite. The oscillating acoustic wave energy breaks down the connective fibrous walls, which trap fat and toxins into bumps under the skin.
Acoustic waves act directly over fat cells, which are responsible for the appearance of cellulitis; they reduce their size and volume. Blood circulation in the tissue is significantly enhanced, strengthening the dermis and epidermis and allowing a natural and fast fat drainage.
This treatment increases the production of collagen, which is the source of a firm and smooth skin.
¿IS IT PAINFUL?
Acoustic Wave Therapy is a non-invasive pain-free cellulite treatment that usually last no longer than 30 minutes. The patient can keep her daily routine without downtime.
¿How long does the treatment last?
We usually recommend a weekly session over the course of 6 weeks for optimum results. However, your therapist will be the one to assess the exact number of treatments you need to have.
Fat cells, an important component of cellulitis are reduced to its minimum. Patients typically experience improvement in the skin’s texture and elasticity.
Acoustic wave treatment could be used to eliminate cellulitis in your legs and abdomen.
This system operates in 3 key ways:
1. Stimulation of the circulatory system: Improves microcirculation by stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, an activity that brings more oxygen and nutrients to the treated area.
2. Encourages the production of collagen: Fibroblast production is stimulated and destruction of fibrosis is reached because of their mechanical and biological effects of greater intensity.
3. Improves drainage within the lymphatic system: It increases the metabolic activity which helps to reduce oedema (swelling) and the drainage of superficial fat cells.
