Acoustic Wave Therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses a probe, similar to those used for ultrasounds, to pass low intensity radial energy waves through the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis layers of the skin to reach targeted tissue cells and create microtears in the connective tissue. It is used to:
This therapy stimulates the reduction of cellulite by aiding in the breakdown of fat cells by activating the cell’s membrane, making it more permeable to be broken down, while the micro tears encourage collagen-rich blood flow to the area. It also stimulates lymphatic drainage of the newly permeable fat cells, which allows the body to naturally remove the fatty lipids and toxins that make them up. The increased collagen production tightens and firms the skin texture by repairing the microtears in the connective tissue with dense fibers.
The end results from this therapy include:
This therapy can be used on any part of the body with bothersome cellulite and stretch marks, and on average requires between six to ten sessions.
It may be used to treat pain or injuries of soft tissue structures including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. By increasing the blood flow to the specified area to increase circulation, this therapy speeds up the rate of healing by supplying the area with more platelets and proteins to heal any damage and decrease inflammation and pain. Treatments for pain are usually recommended once every four to six weeks.
It may also be used as a treatment for Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease by increasing the blood circulation in the penis and breaking up any scar tissue that may be decreasing sensitivity or causing pain.
