What is Cellulite ?
Cellulite describes a condition that occurs mainly in adult women and may affect up to 90% of them, regardless of race, health condition or body weight. External characteristics are its specific location (lower buttocks, outer and posterior thighs and hips), tissue lumpiness, dryness and flabbiness of the skin. Although not defined as a pathologic condition, the presence of cellulite is an aesthetically disturbing problem for most women ages 18 and up and may cause significant psychological and self-esteem issues
How Cellulite Develops?
The process starts with the enlargement of naturally occurring fat cells that are located in the deeper areas of the skin. The gradual enlargement of these cells will compromise the circulatory system and obstruct the regional inflow of the nutrients and the outflow of the waste products. Fat cells inflate in the Hypodermis, adhere to each other and are pushed up to the Epidermis. The skin connective tissue gets weaker and loses elasticity. This will cause a gradual stiffening, contraction, and shortening of the surrounding connective tissue, resulting in tight fibrous bands (septae) and the entrapment of the enlarged fat cells and the inward pull of the over laying skin. Fluids containing toxins are not properly drained due to the damage to the lymphatic system and to the weakened skin connective tissue. The eventual outcome will be the creation of a rough, uneven, dimpled, and cottage cheese appearance in the areas of thigh, buttocks, stomach and arms.
ARWT- Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy
Radial waves are unfocused low pressure acoustic waves created by an electromagnetic ballistic mechanism. The wave is transferred into the tissue impacting a large treatment area. Recently, it has been successfully adapted to the clinical requirements of cellulite therapy.
The radial waves were adapted to efficiently treat dermatologic and cosmetic conditions. The low energy unfocused acoustic radial waves have been shown to have a large impact on collagen structure and the skin connective tissue, improving the blood circulation and the metabolism of the fat cells. The unfocused acoustic wave effect reduces the fat tissue oedema and improves the lymphatic drainage of the toxins, while the skin becomes more elastic and its firmness is visible after only a few treatments.
Temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite
Deep tissue massage
Body shaping & Skin elasticity improvement
Slimspec treatment effect is visible after only few treatments. The initial indication of improvement is the increased skin firmness as well as the velvety smoothness of the treated area.
Beneath the surface, several essential physiological processes occur as a result of the deep mechanical wave: enhanced blood supply to the supportive connective tissue, improved lymphatic drainage and acceleration of the lymphatic system activity and increased metabolic activity which reduces the fat tissue oedema.
