Shockwave Therapy in manchester
Acoustic Wave therapy (AWT) also known as shockwave therapy utilises a sound wave to shrink and permeate fat cells (fat metabolism).
The shockwave activates the metabolism and clears the system of impurities (lymphatic drainage). It also increases blood supply which is great for skin tightening and it softens and strengthens connective tissue (cellulite).
A powerful and effective treatment in the removal of cellulite, skin tightening, and smoothing of the skin. Results can be visible after just 2 weeks and there is no downtime with this non-invasive procedure so you can go about your day to day business as usual. A great accompaniment to other fat burning treatments such as Fat Freezing to help accelerate results.
The purpose of this treatment when used standalone is to improve the quality and structure of this skin, typically this treatment is used on problem areas with connective tissue weakness such as the upper arm and lower abdomen. It can even help with stretch marks!

Shockwave works by stimulating the breakdown of fat, collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage. The shockwaves squeeze the surrounding tissue and break down the ‘grid’ structure of the molecule.
The shockwaves induce the formation of waves travelling at speeds that will produce a cavitation effect. Pressure is created which causes an implosion of water bubbles releasing strong microflows encouraging the breakdown of fibrous hardened tissue.
Fat cells are damaged and broken down, skin is tightened, lymphatic drainage is stimulated for the removal of toxins. Great for treating stubborn fat and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Blood circulation is increased which stimulates the growth and strengthening of collagen which helps with the elasticity and firming of the skin
Shockwave Therapy: The Lowdown
Results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks.
A course of 8 treatments is recommended. There is no downtime and this treatment can be used effectively alone or as a combination with other 3-D Technologies.
Shockwave Therapy is a perfect accompaniment to Fat Freezing as it has been clinically proven (through studies in the US) that combining Shockwave therapy with Fat freezing accelerates the absorption of fat which will result in faster reduction in fat bulges.
As with all the Treatments a healthy lifestyle, exercise and drinking plenty of water will help with achieving the best results.
