Cellulite treatment uses a combination of radiofrequency and 3D Shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy is a clinically proven therapy to redefine and help with body contouring. 3D- shockwave is shown to reduce the effects of cellulite and reduce circumference around the legs, waist and arms and abdomen.
Shockwave therapy works by stimulating the breakdown of fat, collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage. 3D-shockwave uses a probe placed against the area to be treated which emits radial waves through the skin.
Will Shockwave help me lose weight?
Shockwave is not a procedure specifically suitable for losing weight. However, as a body-sculpting technique it is highly effective. There are many reported examples where patients have received Shockwave and have seen circumference reduction in the areas treated coupled with overall weight loss.
More research will be carried out to explore this further. As such, Shockwave is not suitable for the treatment of clinically obese patients however it can be useful for anyone looking to kick start a body contouring programme.
What areas can be improved by Shockwave?
Shockwave can be performed on many areas of the body including the outer and inner thighs, knees, arms, hips, buttocks and stomach.
Is Shockwave right for me?
While Shockwave is no substitute for exercise and a healthy diet, it can help if you have stubborn pockets of cellulite that refuse to go away.
What results can I expect from Shockwave?
The full impact of your Shockwave treatment may not be immediately noticeable, however following your first 3-4 treatment sessions you should be able to start seeing a change in the texture of your skin. The full visual benefits from the treatment should occur within one month and with the option of a maintenance program the results should be long-lasting.
