Shockwave For Cellulite

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance.

How Does Cellulite Form?

There have been many scientific studies to shed light on how cellulite forms. Based on the research, it is thought that cellulite begins when an accumulation of swollen fat cells develops. The swollen fat cells press on the connective fibers that surround them. Then connective fibers bend and pull the skin downward to which they are connected. The result of these conditions is a puckered look on the surface of the skin, which we call the “dreaded” cellulite.

Why Can’t I Exercise to Reduce My Cellulite?

Diet and exercise can affect cellulite, although minimally. It is true that if you gain weight, your cellulite may be more apparent, but diet and exercise alone does not seem to remedy the appearance of cellulite. It does seem, however that a diet high in fibers and water can help flush the system of some of the lymphatic congestion that occurs in the crowded outer layer of fat.

Treating Cellulite

Shockwave therapy helps to disperse the fat cells that form the lumps on the skin and can lead to a more natural and flat looking skin surface.
