Benefits of Shockwave
How does it work?Cellulite therapy involves the application of pulsed acoustic waves to specific body tissues. As the human body is predominantly composed of water, these waves travel through the tissue, generating a cascade of reactions due to the forces exerted. The pulses of vibrational waves penetrate deep into the tissues, causing damage to the fat cells and connective tissues. Subsequently, the body's natural healing process replaces the damaged tissues with new collagen, resulting in smoother and firmer skin. The newly generated collagen and tissues are denser, leading to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance than before the treatment.
What should I expect?We recommend wearing loose comfortable clothing to the treatment. Depending on the body part being treated, we may have you change into a gown to make the area being treated more accessible. A gel will be applied to your skin to improve the effectiveness of the treatment. We try to keep the gel warm, but sometimes it may feel cold when applied. The therapist will use a handheld device that emits shockwaves to your treatment area. The device is moved over your skin in a circular motion, and the intensity of the shockwaves can be adjusted based on your comfort level. You may feel a slight tingling or vibrating sensation during the treatment, but it should not be painful. Some patients describe the sensation as similar to a deep tissue massage.
How many sessions are recommended?Depending on your goals and the severity of your cellulite, you may need multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. A typical treatment plan may involve 8-12 sessions starting at two times per week. Ultimately, the number of sessions recommended will depend on your individual needs and goals, and should be discussed with a qualified practitioner or healthcare provider.
What should I expect after the treatment?You may experience some mild redness, soreness or bruising in the treatment area, but this should resolve within a few days. It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your therapist, such as avoiding vigorous exercise, hot baths, or sun exposure for a certain period of time and to drink plenty of water to aid in the detoxification process. Additionally, if you experience any unusual or persistent symptoms after a session, it's important to consult with your healthcare provider to rule out any underlying health concerns.
Are there contraindications?Cellulite therapy is generally considered safe, but there are certain medical conditions and situations where it may not be recommended. Here is a list of contraindications: Pregnancy/Breastfeeding Blood clotting disorders Blood thinner medications Active cancer Nerve or blood vessel disorders Active infections in the area being treated Open wounds or sores in the area being treated Pacemakers or other implanted devices Epilepsy or seizure disorders Skin or tissue disorders
