Cutting Edge Tissue Regeneration Therapy at Revive Medical Center
Revive Medical Center in Lawrenceville, GA, specializes in providing modern and non-invasive treatment options for cellulite. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is determined to be a safe and effective treatment option in certain cosmetic medicine applications. This treatment is also used successfully in orthopedics and sports medicine, so let’s talk about ESWT and how it can reduce your cellulite.
A History of Effectiveness
Olympic and university team physicians are people who have added ESWT to their athletic treatments with fantastic results. This treatment uses ultrasonic sound waves to encourage the body to self-regenerate. In other words, the sound waves penetrate the skin and trick the targeted cells into thinking that portion of the body has experienced trauma. The cells then go into action and
- Encourage regenerative growth
- Increase blood flow
- Release anti-inflammatory properties
This three-pronged cell reaction encourages injured deep tissue to heal, which is why it is so effective for athletic injuries, but research has shown it is also effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite, which is an unexpected benefit. How it does so is by using the three-pronged reaction to remodel collagen underneath the skin, which results in a smoother and in some cases thinner appearance.
ESWT for Your Cellulite
Aside from being non-invasive, another advantage to ESWT for cellulite is it’s effective in a short amount of time. Most treatments last 30 minutes or less, and our patients have seen results after only a few sessions. Depending on the severity of your cellulite, we might recommend eight to 10 sessions, but we will tailor a treatment plan exclusively to your needs and comfort level.
The procedure is like an ultrasound, so there is no downtime after the procedure. You should take it easy, but there isn’t a need for sedate recovery. On average, the percentage of patients who have successfully treated their cellulite with ESWT is as high as 80 percent. Our patients love it. This orthopedic and sports medicine treatment has proven to be a big gun in cosmetic medicine, as well.
You can opt for ESWT therapy to treat cellulite on any part of your body. It can reduce the appearance of cellulite in your upper arms, belly, hips and, of course, the thighs. You needn’t worry about the safety of this treatment. The FDA has deemed it safe for cellulite reduction and Revive Medical Center has the latest state-of-the-art equipment operated by experienced practitioners for our procedures.
