Cellulite is a term used to describe the dimpled appearance of skin caused by fat deposits that are just below the surface of the skin. It generally appears as skin ages in the abdomen, lower limbs, arms and pelvic region when the collagen fibers become thinner and less resistant to fat cells poking through. It’s a problem that affects mostly women as they have more fat cells than men do.
With Shockwave Therapy, ladies can now achieve smoother skin in the areas where skin dimpling commonly forms — the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and arms.
A study conducted in Switzerland has shown a 110% improvement in skin elasticity in the female patients treated and in many cases, women started to feel softening and smoothing of the skin over the area treated in as little as 3-5 session, while visual changes started to become noticeable after 6-8 sessions.
We use a process called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) because treatment is fast and is virtually painless with no long term side-effects. Some short-term discomfort may be felt during the treatment and tingling or numbness over the treatment area.
