The good news is that according to case studies, it has been medically proven that a treatment therapy known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) has been shown to reduce and improve the appearance of cellulite.
This treatment option was originally used to treat chronic pain in joints, muscles and other painful injuries. Those suffering from these chronically painful injuries received ESWT and most reported that after only a few treatments, there was marked improvement in mobility, healing and pain management.
After further testing, ESWT has shown exciting evidence towards demonstrating real, measurable improvement in the treatment of cellulite reduction.
After a series of treatments, the positive results from ESWT may help:
How ESWT Works
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), also commonly referred to as Shockwave Therapy, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) and Extracorporeal Acoustic Wave Therapy, is a treatment used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Shock Therapy refers to the energetic, acoustic waves which create vibrations that positively impact the underlying connective tissue, cells and ultimately, the skin itself.
The term “extracorporeal” refers to the method by which the shock waves are transmitted through the skin. In this case, the shock waves are delivered externally through a pad and into the skin.
Along with treating cellulite, the therapy will also help to stimulate collagen production, rejuvenate connective tissue, improve elasticity of the skin and give skin an overall firmer, smoother and tighter appearance.
What is really happening during the ESWT process is that shock waves cause micro tears in the connective tissues while breaking down the fatty deposits (cellulite). When the minor tearing (injury) occurs, the body automatically increases the amount of collagen to the affected area as a means of healing.
When the collagen goes to work and restores/heals tendons and tissue, the treated/injured tendons and tissue are replaced with a denser, rejuvenated frame (collagen fibers) and from there, firmer and tighter tendons and tissue. From the outside, the visible result is lifted, firmer, smoother skin.
The shock waves are transmitted via handheld treatment device which delivers a series of acoustic (similar to sound) waves directly into the deep connective tissue of the affected area. Acoustic waves generate strong, energized pulses which send vibrations directly to the skin and tissue.
By using a handheld device, “shock” (or radial/acoustic pressure) waves target enlarged fat cells and break them down.
