Cellulite Problems? Kiss Cellulite Goodbye Forever!
Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is a new revolutionary anti-cellulite and skin tightening process.
How does AWT work on Connective Tissue?
AWT mechanically vibrates connective tissue in affected areas of the body, improving skins appearance of the body:-
* Causing the connective tissue to stretch which increases its elasticity
* Producing increased vascularisation (the organic process whereby body tissue develops capillaries), ensuring better exchanges to the connective tissue
* Producing an inflammatory reaction that triggers the release of healing mediators, creating fibroblastic proliferation leading to a new, thickened band of collagen being deposited in the upper and mid portions of the skin.
The History Behind Acoustic Wave Therapy…
The company was established in 1987 and quickly became technology leaders in Shock Wave Treatment. Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. They occur in the atmosphere, for example during lightening strikes, or when aircraft break through the sound barrier.
Shockwaves are used in hospitals all over the world. For the breaking down of kidney stones and gallstones. They are also used for pain therapy by activating the bodys self healing power enabling damaged tissue to gradually regenerate and eventually heal.
It is during these treatments clients have noticed an improvement in their skins smoothness, reduced appearance of stretch marks and a reduction in circumference measurements that had lead to the introduction of AWT into the cosmetic field.
World renowned Storz Medical have recently modified this ultra modern technology as the treatment now only needs to effect the depth of the skin resulting in a gentler but still effective treatment for cellulite that has been named Acoustic Wave Therapy and for the first time in their lives women can experience life changing results with this revolutionary process.
Understanding the True Cause of Cellulite…
Recent studies have revealed two major causes of cellulite. The first is a hardening of the connective tissue support system in fat. These are referred to as connective tissue (Fibrous septae), which are made of collagen. Over time, these septae harden and contract. The contraction results in most of the dimpled appearance that characterises cellulite. Additionally the contraction leads to a blockage of the blood vessels and Lymphatic System. The blood vessels blockage further hardens the septae. The lymphatic blockage leads to thick swollen appearing skin.
As cellulite is a two-fold problem it has been difficult to uncover a treatment that targets both the causes of cellulite, the hardened connective tissue and the protrusion of fat cells.
The second major cause of cellulite is protrusion of fat cells into the lower part of the skin is known as the ‘reticular dermis’. This protrusion results in the worsening of the dimpling.
Treatments for cellulite need to address both these issues in order to have really good results.
How does AWT have an effect on the Connective Tissue and Fat Protrusion?
AWT uses pressure waves that impact both the major causes of cellulite; 1) Hardening of the Fibrous Septae (connective tissue) and 2) Protrusion of fat into the lower dermis.
AWT produces a pressure wave that passes through skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. The pressure breaks up the collagen of the septae and releases the skin, allowing a smoother surface. The pressure wave also disrupts the fat cells causing leakage which can be carried away by the blood stream. AWT also helps to thicken the dermis, the layer of skin which strengthens and restricts fat protrusion.
Patient Treatment and Results…
Typically patients are treated twice per week for three weeks, with additional sessions generally requiring less than half an hour treatment. Additional treatments may be necessary in a small subset of patients. Patients may wish to have a maintenance session once every five months after completing the program.
Initial Clinical Study results show that AWT patients typically experience:-
* Improvement in skin texture
* Improvement in skin elasticity
* Firming of the skin dermis
* Circumference reduction
If you are tired of empty promises from creams, pills and exercise AWT may give you results that exceed your expectations. AWT will get you real results in real time. This modern highly effective treatment method for smoother and firmer skin is rapid, non invasive and pain free. Available in our Clinic now, so come and experience AWT at The House of Healing for rewarding results.
