About Treatment

3D-shockwave works by producing sound waves stimulating the fat breakdown, collagen synthesis, and lymphatic drainage.

Areas that can be improved with this treatment

Abdomen, Hips, Thighs, Buttocks, Knees, Arms

How It Works

3D-shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area is emits radial waves through the skin.

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.

Normally for targeting cellulite, 3D shockwave is used in combination with other 3D body treatments.
