Acoustic Shockwave Therapy

Reduce Cellulite & Smooth Skin

Low Intensity Acoustic Radial Wave (shockwave) therapy is used for the treatment of cellulite on the abdomen, hips, thighs or buttocks. It is also used as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction and/or benign prostatic hypertrophy.

Acoustic Radial Waves Technology (AEWT) uses unfocused low pressure acoustic waves created by an electromagnetic ballistic mechanism. The wave is transferred to the treatment area.

How It Works

The treatment generates an instant reaction of a butterfly-like effect. The body responds to the acoustic radial wave by increasing metabolic activity around the site of the treated area.

The acoustic radial waves reduce the tissue endema, which is one of the initial phenomena of the cellulite. Reduction of endema causes less puffiness of the skin. The tissue becomes more permeable so the fluids and the toxins retained within the fat cells are being released and drained by the lymphatic system.

By reducing the toxins through the reduction of endema, there is less damage to the collagen fibers, thus less degeneration and tighter holding of the skin.

Side Effects

The shockwave is painless and non-invasive with minimal but usually no side effects and no downtime. Rare side effects include bruising, pain, and swelling near the application area.

For erectile dysfunction, penile pain is rare, mild, and temporary, if it should occur.

What can I expect?

Common side effects may include, but may not be limited to, muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, temporary joint or tendon pain, and redness at or near the treatment site.

Treatments are typically twice a week for 4-6 sessions and then maintenance is quarterly.
