When it first developed, shockwave’s purpose is to help patients who are suffering from kidney stone. It breaks the kidney stone into smaller pieces that can go through the urethra easily.
It wasn’t long ago that its benefits for cellulite treatment was found. It also has other applications i.e for erectile dysfunctions and prostatitis.
Cellulite is actually caused by a layer of fat underneath the skin. As fat cells structure is not smooth like the skin, but rather accumulated, attached to each other, it makes your skin look bumpy and not smooth.
Shockwave generates acoustic energy to break down the fat cells. It helps as a cellulite treatment by breaking down the accumulated fat cells into smaller groups.
Shockwave delivered the acoustic energy into the outer skin layer. The acoustic energy disrupts the skin, causing it to release more collagen. The collagen helps to strengthen the connective tissue within the skin. This process is called skin remodelling, which tightens the skin and reduces the cellulite appearance.
The acoustic energy also helps to break down the fat cells into smaller particles. This allows our body to absorb it faster.
Shockwave is a cellulite skin treatment with many benefits. For anti-cellulite removal purpose, they are proven effective as it is:
Cellulite are often found in the buttocks, thighs and hips. They are a layer of subcutaneous fat which are very stubborn and usually can’t be reduced using normal diet or exercise. Shockwave breaks down the accumulated fat cells, and break them down into smaller pieces so it will be easier to be absorbed by the body.
Saggy skin are caused by the lack of skin laxity. Over the time as we grow older, our skin will lose the collagen it needs to pull together the skin. This causes wrinkles, folds or lines. By using cellulite, we can induce the body into releasing and producing more collagen. With more collagen, the skin will be able to tighten loose skin.
