SHOCKWAVE CELLULITE REDUCTION
This treatment is used to reduce cellulite and smooth the overall appearance of the areas treated. A course of shockwave will also result in inch loss and is used alongside our fat reduction treatments.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Shockwaves induce the formation of waves to produce a cavitation effect. This effect creates a pressure force which creates the formation and then the implosion of water bubbles, which release strong micro-flows to encourage the breakdown of hardened fibrous tissue. Shockwave therapy will activate the body’s metabolism and encourage the clearing out of these impurities from the system by lymphatic movement and waste removal via the liver leaving the skin with a much smoother, tighter appearance.
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
The treatment is a fairly a relaxing one, similar to a deep tissue massage.
Increasing lymphatic drainage
Fat cell size reduction
Permeates fat cell membrane
Uses the body’s ability to repair itself

Stomach & Hips
Between 8-12 treatments, 1 weekly session is recommended to achieve optimum results although we will advise the best treatment plan for you.
TREATMENTS THAT COMPLIMENT
Shockwave can be combined with Fat Freezing, Radio Frequency and Cavitation. Using Shockwave alongside Fat Freezing will not only speed the fat loss up twice as fast but will also increase the result of fat loss by double. Combining Shockwave with Cavitation will increase the production of fat loss and tighten skin. Radio Frequency followed by Shockwave will increase the tightening of the skin.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHOCKWAVE & RADIO FREQUENCY?
Both of these treatments smooth and tighten the skin. Radio Frequency tightens loose, less firm skin whereas Shockwave smooths cellulite and the surface of the skin.
