Shockwaves that reduce cellulite in a non-invasive way, stimulating blood flow and the production of collagen, reinforcing the skin’s firmness and restoring elasticity.

Do you know what acoustic waves or shockwaves are? Surely you’ve heard of them, they are often used in the treatment of tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain etc.; but they also have a role in breaking up kidney stones. Now science has managed to add a twist to this technique by using it as a treatment in the cosmetic alteration of the body’s contours.

What do we mean? Well, in Clínica Áureo it will be useful in the treatment of stretch marks, firming up tissue and increasing its elasticity, treating lipoedema, stimulating the lymphatic system, and reducing scars. But where it will be especially useful is in the treatment of cellulite. Why? Because shockwaves cause vibrations in the tissue, which stimulates blood circulation and the production of collagen as the tissue relaxes and tenses, by which we increase the firmness and elasticity of the dermis. All this means that the patient experiences an improvement in texture and elasticity of the skin, as well as a firming effect and a reduction in ‘orange peel’ appearance.

Is this treatment only for women? No! Not at all, it is a cosmetic medical treatment suitable for both men and women. In fact, it is a fantastic technique for the reduction of the ‘spare tyre’ from which men typically suffer.

In addition to improving the appearance of cellulite-affected skin by reducing dimples, it will also improve symptoms of this condition, as it has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect that alleviates any typical discomfort and heaviness that these patients may feel. Another benefit to consider is that shockwaves are non-invasive, which is ideal for those patients who ‘don’t like needles’. The sessions are short, from approximately 20 to 30 minutes depending on the area and the tissue’s condition, and results are visible after the first session.
