Shockwave is a powerful and effective treatment in reducing cellulite, tightening and firming as well as smoothing the skin. Shockwave can be used as a standalone application or in conjunction with other fat removal or skin tightening treatments to accelerate results.
As a standalone application, the focus is generally on improving the skin structure and connective tissue.
Typical treatment areas are cellulite, connective tissue weakness (upper arm, under the abdomen, etc), and stretch marks.
- Skin tightening and body contouring
- Increased firmness & lifting of the skin
- Reduces appearance of stretchmarks
- A detailed consultation so you can make an informed decision
- FDA approved
Shockwave works by stimulating the fat break down, collagen synthesis, and lymphatic drainage. Shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area it emits Radial Waves through the skin.
The high-energy radial shockwaves squeeze the surrounding tissue and break down the grid structure of the molecules. The tensile wave leads to a collapse of the gas bubbles within the fat structures ( Cavitation ) which re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves and thus ensure destabilization of the fat structures.
Research has suggested pressure or acoustic waves are effective in disrupting the sclerotic fibrous tissue septae responsible for much of the uneven appearance of cellulite.
