How Does Radio Frequency Work?
As our skin matures and is continuously subjected to environmental effects, its connective tissue begins to break down, causing wrinkles and other signs of ageing to develop.
The Focus Fractional RF energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extracellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts thereby accelerating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres.
The concentration of collagen fibres and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits, tighten the skin layers creating a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
What is 3D-dermology?
3D-dermology uses vacuum skin rolling to enhance the 3D-lipo treatment process by encouraging lymphatic drainage and improving the appearance of cellulite.
Improvement of skin tightening, cellulite, and stretch marks
1. Is Shockwave right for me?
While Shockwave is no substitute for exercise and a healthy diet, it can help if you have stubborn pockets of cellulite that refuse to go away.
2. What areas can be improved by Shockwave?
Shockwave can be performed on many areas of the body including the outer and inner thighs, knees, arms, hips, buttocks and stomach.
3. What results can I expect from Shockwave?
The full impact of your Shockwave treatment may not be immediately noticeable, however following your first 3-4 treatment sessions you should be able to start seeing a change in the texture of your skin. The full visual benefits from the treatment should occur within one month and with the option of a maintenance program the results should be long lasting.
4. Can I combine Shockwave with other treatments?
Many people who undergo Shockwave choose to combine it with other procedures. We would advise that you speak with one of our therapists prior to the commencement of Shockwave to discuss your previous treatments and also your therapy goal.
Trying to budge stubborn cellulite?
A course of Shockwave can greatly reduce the appearance of cellulite. Healthy skin requires good blood flow with consistent levels of fat. Shockwave will provide an improvement of blood flow to the skin and reduce the volume of fat by helping your cells flush away unwanted fatty acids.
Shockwave works by stimulating the fat break down, collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage. Shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area it emits Radial Waves through the skin.
A course of treatment is typically 8-10 individual 45-minute sessions and results are seen as quickly as 2 weeks after starting the course. If you exercise and increase how much water you drink you may see even better results. 90% of women who took part in a clinical study would recommend this treatment. Our experienced therapists will be able to tailor an individual Shockwave treatment plan to meet your desired goal.
