Many people think that they’re stuck with their unsightly cellulite. However, the cottage cheese look that plagues your arms, abdomen, and thighs can be finally reduced using a safe, non-invasive treatment.
X-Wave, created by BTL Aesthetics, is a type of shockwave therapy clinically proven to treat cellulite and contour the body. This safe and FDA-cleared procedure targets and rejuvenates the skin and underlying soft tissues to smooth out cellulite, tighten loose skin, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. If you want to know how to get rid of cellulite, BTL X-Wave is the answer.
What is the BTL X-Wave?
BTL X-Wave is a type of shockwave therapy or acoustic wave therapy treatment. During treatment, acoustic waves are delivered into the body, creating vibrations in the soft tissues. The acoustic waves are powerful, non-focused pulses of sound that are directed at specific areas of skin or tissue. This can result in improved skin smoothness, elasticity, texture, and tightening.
How Does X-Wave Work?
The X-Wave treatment works by breaking down fat under the skin. The device stimulates lymphatic drainage to remove excess fat materials and toxins from the body. It also aids in collagen production for skin that appears smoother, healthier, and more youthful.
The vibrations from the X-Wave cellulite treatment physically break down fat by activating fat cells which cause them to become more permeable. Lipids are then able to leave the body more easily through the lymphatic system.
Sound waves from the cellulite reduction treatments also offer other benefits. The sound waves boost blood flow and circulation to the area of skin being treated. This encourages new blood vessels to develop which bring more oxygen and nutrients to the area to repair skin and tissues.
As the sound waves also stimulate the lymphatic system, the body is better able to transport waste, fat, and trapped fluid for better health. An increase in fibroblast material results in increased collagen for smoother skin.
What are the Advantages?
- Breaks down fatty deposits and cellulite
- Improves muscle tone
- Smooths and rejuvenates skin
- Tightens skin and underlying connective tissues
- Reduces circumference of treated area
- Increases the firmness of skin
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of treatments needed ultimately depends on the patient and the area of the body being treated. On average, cellulite treatment in Singapore requires two to three sessions per week spaced evenly apart.
If you’re searching for a safe fat reduction and quick cellulite treatment, consider undergoing a fat freezing treatment like CoolSculpting or BTL Vanquish in combination with BTL X-Wave. Together, these treatments can melt fat and diminish the look of cellulite on nearly any part of the body.
How Soon Can I See Results?
Most people will begin to see a visible improvement in their skin’s texture after just four treatments. However, the full results will not be seen until after you’ve complete your customized treatment.
Skin will gradually improve over the following two to three months after treatment as collagen production and circulation improves. If you’re interested in undergoing non-invasive cellulite treatments, schedule an appointment with our skin specialist in Singapore at the Cutis Laser Clinics.
