Stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite.
3-D Shockwave works by stimulating the fat breakdown, collagen synthesis, and lymphatic drainage. 3D-Shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the area of cellulite, as it passes over the area it emits radial waves through the skin.
For cellulite, sound waves stimulate the microcirculation within 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. Lymphatic movement then remove these waste products from the body.
For skin tightening, sound waves stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation in the area. They also stimulate the connective tissue and septa mobility, giving the skin a firmer tone and reducing dimples within the skin.
3-D Shockwave can be preformed on many areas of the body including the outer and inner thighs, knees, arms, hips, buttocks and stomach.
