A New Treatment for Smoother, Firmer Skin
What does Acoustic Wave Therapy treat?
Dimpled or uneven skin is a nagging problem for millions of women, including those who work hard to keep fit. With Acoustic Wave Therapy™ (AWT), women can achieve smoother skin in the areas where skin dimpling commonly forms — the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
How does it reduce the appearance of cellulite?
While dimpled skin can be traced to genetics, hormones and lifestyle, the problem’s immediate cause is the accumulation of lipids in the fat cells. Swelling from lipid accumulation exerts pressure on the circulatory system, causing a slowdown in the intake of nutrients and the drainage of waste. Poor exchanges lead to a gradual stiffening of the connective tissue, which shortens as it stiffens, pulling the skin down. At the same time, the clusters of enlarged fat cells pull the skin up. This gives the appearance of dimpling.Physicians have long used acoustic pulses to help patients ease the pain associated with poor circulation and stiff joints and tendons. AWT has adapted this technology to improve the appearance of the skin. Our highly trained medical staff will help you decide if AWT is right for you.
