Best for stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite.
The use of ESWT for aesthetic purposes is called lipotripsy. Lipotripsy works by stimulating fat breakdown , collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage via the delivery of radial shockwaves. This is the latest technology clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite and increase skin elasticity.
3D Lipo Overview
3D Lipo offers a complete approach to treating the face and body to ensure best patient results. Multiple treatment options are available individually and in combination.
Shockwave – Tech explained
Stimulates fat breakdown
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 emit radial waves through the skin.
How this tech works
For cellulite, sound waves stimulate the microcirculation withing 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 the 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.
