Women can develop cellulite in areas such as their abdomen, thighs, or buttocks that makes them self-conscious, especially when baring skin at the beach or in the bedroom. This dimpled fat that lies just beneath the skin can effectively be treated with shockwave therapy at Functional Health Center. The procedure is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that can safely reduce the appearance of cellulite. Call our office today to learn more and to schedule your appointment.
Cellulite Reduction Q & A
Everyone has fat that sits beneath the skin, whether you’re fit, overweight, or somewhere in between. Cellulite happens when the subcutaneous skin pushes against connective tissue, resulting in a cottage-cheese appearance at the surface of your skin.
Whether you develop cellulite is largely due to hormones, diet, and body composition. A sedentary lifestyle and dehydration can also lead to its formation. As you get older, poor circulation to the connective tissue often leads to the decline of collagen production, a skin-strengthening protein, and contributes to the appearance of cellulite.
While diet and exercise can help you lose pounds on the scale, it doesn’t always mean the surface fat of cellulite disappears. Becoming more active and eating a healthy diet does help.
Functional Health Center offers shockwave therapy to dissolve cellulite in a noninvasive, nonsurgical way. The acoustic waves delivered during a session create vibrations that positively alter your skin’s underlying connective tissue and cells.
The shockwaves cause microtears in your connective tissue and simultaneously break down fatty deposits that make up your cellulite. Your body rushes more collagen to the area to heal the perceived injury, resulting in more resilient tissue. Your skin looks naturally smoother and stronger, and your connective tissue rejuvenates. Your skin’s elasticity and smoothness are enhanced and you look firmer and tighter overall.
You need just three shockwave treatments to see noticeable results without injections or creams that invariably fail to produce real cellulite reduction.
In addition to being an effective way to reduce cellulite, Shockwave therapy:
- Restores connective tissue
- Breaks down enlarged fat cells
- Improves muscle tone
- Enhances skin’s resilience
- Reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scars
- Promotes lymphatic drainage so you efficiently eliminate toxins and waste
- Boosts blood flow and circulation
- Tightens and firms loose skin
Shockwave therapy is effective and doesn’t require any downtime after treatment.
