Can Acoustical Wave Therapy Help You With Your Cellulite?

Here is an account of Acoustical Wave Therapy (AWT) at The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge from one of our patients:


“I have done a lot of research on what I can do to helping the appearance of cellulite and “the banana roll” on the back of my legs.  I have tried several things with not a lot of success. So I decided to check into Acoustical Wave Therapy.

I went to The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge for a free consultation.  I met with Dr. Kenyatta Shamlin and she suggested that I try AWT. Dr. Shamlin suggested that I do 2 AWT treatments per week, with the Infrared Body Wrap for 3 weeks and then she would check the progress to see if she thought I needed more sessions. Dr. Shamlin also suggested that I use the BelleDerm Trim & Tone Body gel twice a day in conjunction with the treatments to help promote skin firming.

I decided to give it a try, so I scheduled my appointment for the next day with their esthetician, Sean.  The first treatment wasn’t bad – it just sounded like a jack hammer, but there was no pain. It just felt a little uncomfortable in areas, like a little stinging sensation across the back of my upper legs.

I just finished my second treatment and already started seeing a difference in the back of my legs, each session takes about 25-30 minutes for one area.  The skin is looks and feels smoother and less dimpling on the back of my legs where Sean did the treatment.  I am also using the BelleDerm Body Gel twice a day. I did some research on the BelleDerm and found out it has micronized Vitamin C and natural diuretic’s to shrink fat cells. I have 4 more AWT sessions left and I can’t wait to see the results… I will keep you updated on my progress!”
