Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy works by stimulating the 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.
It is delivered by placing a probe up against the skin, 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 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 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.
A course of treatment is typically 8 – 10 individual 30 minute sessions. We recommend Shockwave Therapy as part of a combination treatment. Our Aesthetic Practitioners will recommend a treatment plan following consultation.

Results are seen as quickly as 2 weeks after starting a course. If you exercise and increase your water intake you may see even better results. 90% of women who took part in a clinical study would recommend this treatment. Our experienced Aesthetic Practitioners will be able to tailor an individual shockwave treatment plan to meet your desired goal.

The treatment itself is quite noisy, making a loud knocking sound. Shockwave is a comfortable treatment and feels a bit like a tapotement massage.  In certain areas it can feel like a slight pinch but generally most people report very little discomfort.

Areas that can be improved with this treatment

Our team are looking forward to welcoming you to the clinic soon.
