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 Radio 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 treatment plan to meet your desired goal.
