What is Shockwave?
Shockwave works by stimulating the fat breakdown, 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.
For cellulite, sound waves stimulate the microcirculation within the fat layer, increasing the metabolic function of the area and cellular membrane permeability. Free fatty acids and glycerol are released from the fat cells and sit in the intercellular space. Lymphatic movement and increased blood supply remove these waste products from the body.
For skin tightening, sound waves stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation within the area. They also stimulate the connective tissue and septa mobility, giving the skin a firmer tone and reducing the dimples within the skin.
What to expect from Shockwave treatment?
Results are seen as quickly as 2 weeks after starting the course. If you exercise and increase your water intake you may see even better results. 90% of women who took part in a clinical study would recommend this treatment.
A course of 8 sessions recommended following fat reduction/body contouring treatments.
