Stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite.
3D-shockwave works by stimulating the fat breakdown, collagen synthesis, and lymphatic drainage. 3D-shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area is emits radial waves through the skin.
How this tech works
For cellulite, sound waves stimulate the microcirculation within the fat layer, increasing the metabolic function of the area and increasing cellular membrane permeability. Free fatty acids and glycerol are released from the fat cells and sit in the intercellular space. Lymphatic movement and increased blood supply remove these waste products from the body. For skin tightening, sound waves stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation within the area. They also stimulate the connective tissue and septa mobility, giving the skin a firmer tone and reducing the dimples within the skin.
What areas can be improved with 3D-shockwave?
3D-shockwave can be performed on many areas of the body including the outer and inner thighs, knees, arms, hips, buttocks, and stomach.
How many treatments are recommended?
A course of treatment is typically 8 – 10 individual 30 minute sessions.
What results can I expect from this treatment?
Results are seen as quickly as 2 weeks after starting the course. If you exercise and increase your water intake you may see even better results. 90% of women who took part in a clinical study would recommend this treatment. Our experienced therapists will be able to tailor an individual shockwave treatment plan to meet your desired goal.
Can I combine 3D-shockwave with other treatments?
Many people who undergo 3D-shockwave choose to combine it with other procedures. We would advise that you speak with one of our therapists prior to the commencement of 3D-shockwave to discuss your previous treatments and also your treatment goals.
What will I experience during treatment?
The treatment itself is quite noisy, making a loud knocking sound. 3D-shockwave is a comfortable treatment and feels like a tapotement massage.
