Acoustic shockwave therapy is clinically proven for:
- Reducing cellulite

Why does acoustic shockwave work well for cellulite?
Studies suggest that acoustic shockwave therapy has been found as a safe and effective treatment option for cellulite. It is scientifically proven to improve blood circulation and have a large impact on skin connective tissue. It also stimulates collagen formation to make the tissues more elastic and firmer.
The vibrations from both X Wave and Z Wave devices are directed at specific tissues or areas of the skin. They physically break down fibrous tissue and fat under the skin. This activates the fat cells and causes them to become softer or more permeable. It then enables fat cells to leave the body more easily through the lymphatic system.
Acoustic shockwave also offers other benefits that help in cellulite reduction. These include:
● Encourage development of new blood vessels
● Bring more oxygen and nutrients to repair skin and tissues
● Stimulated lymphatic system allows the body to able to transfer waste and fat better
● Improve collagen regeneration
How does Acoustic Shockwave work?
The procedure involves the use of a handheld device that delivers acoustic shockwave, causing pressures and vibrations to the connective tissues. This then breaks down the buildup of cellulite’s cell structure. The vibrations, furthermore, make the tissues softer and more active, increasing the elasticity of the epidermis.
Acoustic shockwave therapy in Singapore also has a multiple layer effect. Typically, patients experience improvements in the texture and elasticity of the skin. This also includes dermal firming and reducing the appearance of aged and loose skin.
