ACOUSTIC WAVE THERAPY (AWT)
AWT is a painless, non-invasive treatment that improves the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is usually caused by the formation of fibrotic tissue around fat cells that compresses the lymphatic drainage and limiting the blood flow of nutrients to the area. This results in unhealthy tissue, the stiffening of connective tissue, pulling the skin down. The activity of the fat cells and the connective tissue produces a dimpled, orange-peel-like skin texture. Acoustic Wave Therapy uses ultrasound waves to disrupt the scar tissue and connective tissue, improving circulation and initiating collagen production for thicker, more elastic skin. Normally, a total of 6 treatments is required. Treatment takes place twice a week for three weeks. Each session lasts about 15-20 minutes.
