shockwave therapy for treating cellulite

How Shockwave Therapy Could Reduce Cellulite

There are few things more frustrating than dealing with unwanted cellulite. You can diet, exercise, and be the size and shape that you want, but if you find that you are covered with unflattering “dimples,” “bumps” or “lumps” then it can be very unflattering. Unfortunately, cellulite can also be very difficult to get rid of. The good news is, LT Men’s Clinic has a solution that can help with Shockwave Therapy.

First, it is important to understand what cellulite is. This condition, also known as “gynoid lipodystrophy” impacts the skin and gives it a bumpy or dimpled appearance. Typically, cellulite begins to develop more as people age—and as we naturally start producing collagen, which is what gives our skin elasticity. Cellulite can develop in different areas of the body, including the stomach, legs, arms and buttocks.

This unsightly appearance can make anyone feel self-conscious, but new research into shockwave therapy has shown how it can help smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a medically proven treatment that can help with cellulite. While this therapy was originally developed for other medical uses, such as treating chronic pain or erectile dysfunction. The good news is, with regular testing, shockwave therapy can help with cellulite reduction in a number of ways, including the following:

  • Breaking down enlarged fat cells that can increase the look of cellulite
  • Tightening and firming loose skin
  • Restoring connective tissue (in lieu of cellulite) that can increase skin elasticity
  • Reduce the production and appearance of cellulite
  • Improving skin elasticity
  • Delivering better muscle tone
  • Improved blood flow and circulation to improve appearance of cellulite
  • Improved natural production of collagen
  • Reducing appearance of scars and stretch marks

This shockwave treatment uses acoustic waves and vibrations that can impact the connective tissues, cells and skin. It is effective, fast acting and isn’t painful. In fact, you can enjoy a ESWT session in about 30 minutes or less.  The procedure is fast, simple and can be done in our office using a handheld device. It is safe, non-invasive and FDA-approved and there is no real downtime after treatment. Most people see results in 8-10 sessions.
