Along with the existing non-invasive procedures like dermal fillers, microdermabrasion and wrinkle treatments, a new therapy is gaining popularity among those looking to lose weight, look younger and get rid of unwanted marks. Acoustic Wave Therapy is the latest in cellulite removal and fat-busting. This therapy works in ways different from lasers, heat treatments and radio frequencies.
The benefits of this treatment were discovered years ago when several women athletes were undergoing the therapy for strained and torn hamstrings. The practitioners noticed that the treatment not only fixed injuries but all tightened skin and reduced the appearance of cellulite.
How it works
This treatment targets fat cells, which sometimes become enlarged and move up to the surface. These big fat cells limit circulation resulting in dimples. The acoustic wave works by piercing the cell and letting its toxins drain out. For effective draining of toxins from your system, drinking a minimum of three liters of water daily is important.
This procedure also tricks the body into believing that your skin is getting attacked and begins an inflammatory process. This in turn produces collagen and promotes your skin’s elasticity. Collagen adds to the skin’s thickness and reduces stretch marks and the visibility of thread veins.
The machine vibrates, disrupting the connective tissue and making skin smooth and firm. It causes neo-vascularization. Results become visible around the third or fourth session and there is a consistent improvement for three months after the last session. It is ideal for patients to attend a maintenance session quarterly after the entire therapy is complete.
Most patients who undergo acoustic wave therapy have experienced the following results:
- The skin’s dermis becomes firmer
- Substantial improvement in the texture and elasticity of the skin
- Considerable reduction in cellulite
- A reduction in overall circumference
Advantages of this treatment
Because of its non-invasive nature, this procedure is ideal for anyone who would like to get rid of cellulite, stretch marks and flabby skin. The best results are seen on those who are closest to their ideal weight. It does not require any anesthesia and there is no downtime involved. You can return to work or performing your everyday tasks as soon as the procedure is over. There are no serious side effects or complications with this therapy. Some sensitive individuals may experience slight redness or bruising, but this diminishes quickly.
