Cellulite is a gargantuan issue in the skin care industry. The battle with cellulite has been going on for a very long time. The presence of cellulite is often frustrating and distorts the smoothness of the skin. It is often associated with lower self-esteem. The good news is that the technological advancements in the medical industry have caused the arrival of acoustic wave therapy (AWT). Acoustic Wave Therapy has been known to overcome all the shortcomings of the previous treatments.
Acoustic Wave Therapy
Age causes the connective tissues become less elastic. This causes the deposits of fat and toxin to be trapped within the connective tissues. Acoustic Wave Therapy uses high pressure waves and causes vibrations. The vibrations caused relax the connective tissues and break down fat, improve circulation and stimulate collagen production. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
Benefits of Acoustic Wave Therapy
Acoustic Wave Therapy is painless. This is in contrast with surgeries and shock wave treatments which inflict pain to the individual undergoing the cellulite treatment. Sound vibrations are being used to treat cellulite in the acoustic wave therapy. This is described as a pleasant experience by many patients.
Acoustic Wave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment. It poses little to no risk of scarring and side effects. The area being treated may appear reddened indicating the increased blood circulation that occurs as the connective tissues being relaxed. Most patients return to their normal day-to-day routine on the day of treatment itself.
Acoustic Wave Therapy is an affordable treatment. The costs vary from place to place, one doctor to another and the severity of the cellulite. Other treatments, comparatively cost more than Acoustic Wave Therapy.
Acoustic Wave Therapy can be performed quickly. Acoustic Wave Therapy takes about 15 to 45 minutes depending on the severity of cellulite. The 15 to 45 minutes sessions are done twice a week for three to six weeks. Once these regular sessions are completed, patients will be needed to undergo follow-up treatments once in every three months. Acoustic Wave Therapy is an outpatient treatment and does not require a long period of hospitalization which translates to saving time and energy by leaps and bounds.
It is to be noted that Acoustic Wave Therapy need to be followed with a healthy diet and regular exercise. The success of the Acoustic Wave Therapy is also highly dependent on the expertise and experience of the aesthetic professionals conducting the procedure. Hence, it is highly recommended the treatment is done at a highly reputable place.
