Acoustic Wave Therapy - Cellulite Treatments

Wave cellulite goodbye...With the revolutionary anti- cellulite and skin tightening process

How Acoustic Wave Therapy works

AWT mechanically deeply vibrates connective tissue and fat cells in affected areas of the body, improving the skin's appearance by

  • Causing the connective tissue tightening which increases its elasticity, muscle firmness and circumference reduction.
  • Producing increased vascularisation, ensuring better exchanges to the connective tissue
  • Producing an inflammatory reaction that triggers the release of healing mediators, creating fibroblastic proliferation leading to a new thickened band of collagen being deposited in the upper and mid portions of the kin.

AWT BEFORE AWTDURING AWTAfter

Before

Enlarged fat cells push the skin up and compress the circulatory system, reducing inflow of nutrients and outflow of waste products. Diminished exchanges in circulation lead to a gradual stiffening of the connective tissue, pulling down on the skin. The push/pull effect creates the appearance of cellulite.

During

The mechanical action of AWT: - Disrupts the connective tissue to firm   and smooth the skin. - Causes neo-vascularisation, improving   circulatory exchanges (the root cause   of the problem). - Initiates an inflammatory process in   the skin, leading to thicker, more   elastic skin through collagen production

After

The elasticity of the connective tissue is restored and the skin is smoother. The skin is thicker and more elastic with noticeable. Improvement in the skin's texcture.

How does AWT have an effect on the connective tissue and fat protusion

AWT uses pressure waves that impact both the major causes of cellulite;

  1. Hardening of the Fibrous Septae
  2. Protrusion of fat into the lower dermis

AWT produces a pressure wave that passes thought skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. The pressure breaks up the collagen of the septae and releases the skin, allowing a smoother surface.

The pressure wave also disrupts the fat cells causing leakage which can be carried away by the blood stream.

AWT also helps to thicken the dermis the layer of skin which strengthens and restricts fat protrusion.

 

Once we understand the true cause of Cellulite we can understand why AWT is producing such effective results

Recent studies have revealed two major causes of cellulite. The first is a hardening of the connective tissue support system in fat. There are referred to as connective tissue, which are made of collage. Over time, these septae harden and contract. The contraction results in most of the dimpled appearance that characterises cellulite.

Additionally, the contraction leads to blockage of the blood vessels and Lymphatic system. The blood vessels blockage further hardens the septae. The lymphatic blockage leads to thick, swollen appearing skin.

All fat is not cellulite, only the part present in the superficial layer. The superficial layer is the last area to be affected by weight loss. Therefore, exercise and weight loss do not eliminate cellulite

Patient Treatment and Results

Typically patients are treated twice per week for three to five weeks, with sessions generally requiring less than a half an hour treatment. Additional treatments may be necessary in a small percentage of patients. Patients may wish to have a maintenance session once every five months after completing the program.

Initial clinical results show that AWT patients typically experience:

  • Improvement in skin texture
  • Improvement in skin elasticity
  • Firming of the skin dermis
  • Circumference reduction

The improvements are visible to the naked eye
