Acoustic Wave Therapy - a procedure that promises to reduce cellulite and sun damage by manipulating the connective tissue deep under the skin’s surface using acoustic pulses that pass through the skin and fat to release the cells causing cellulite – the fat cells that are ‘trapped’ under the skin’s surface.

This procedure has already been used for several years to treat patients suffering from bad joints or poor circulation, because the vibration and rhythmic movements help to trigger the body’s pain and anti-inflammatory response so that new collagen is formed.

More collagen and elastin under the skin make the top of the skin appear smoother and more resilient, and this itself can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Acoustic wave therapy:

• Disrupts the connective tissue to firm and smooth the skin.
• Causes neo-vascularization, improving circulatory exchanges (the root cause of the problem).

Acoustic wave therapy works by transmitting heated, high-pressure waves to the treatment site and triggering collagen production.

Collagen is a natural substance that helps create smooth and supple skin, and the body produces collagen naturally when it senses skin damage or injury.

This response helps to rebuild any damaged skin tissues and also smooths out any uneven skin in the process. 

Individuals looking for a non-invasive method for reducing the appearance of cellulite on the skin are generally optimal candidates for this procedure.

Acoustic Wave Therapy is designed to treat cellulite, and not break down fatty tissue like many other noninvasive fat reduction and cellulite reduction currently on the market.

AWT procedures can target problem areas such as the:

• Thighs
• Buttocks
• Knees
• Abdomen
• Arms
• Flanks (love handles)

Treatments are administered using a handheld device that mechanically pulls and sculpts the underlying tissues using a series of pulses. The head of the device emits high pressure waves to stimulate the skin and draw blood up near the surface. As the frequency is increased, the device helps manipulate and massage the connective tissues with intense pressure. Treatment lasts 15 to 20 mins.

• The elasticity of the connective tissue is restored and the skin is smoother.
• The skin is thicker and more elastic with noticeable improvement to the skin’s texture.
• A noticeable difference in reduction of lumpy areas and orange peel effect.
