The solution to long-term cellulite reduction

The solution to long-term cellulite reduction

BTL Aesthetics is renowned for its cutting-edge aesthetic technologies aimed at addressing patients’ needs and being able to provide body treatments for all bodies. One of the unsightliest skin conditions that patients suffer from is cellulite and while many cellulite treatments have been advocated within the aesthetics industry, they have not been truly successful in treating the condition.

However, this is where BTL Aesthetics has stepped up to the plate and developed the revolutionary BTL X-Wave treatment, which has been scientifically proven to successfully reduce cellulite and effectively contour the body through acoustic wave therapy.

The X-Wave uses specially modified acoustic wave pulses that induce vibration in the targeted connective tissue. The tissue relaxes and stretches as a result of which the firmness and elasticity of the epidermis increases.  Acoustic wave therapy has a complex multilayer effect which means that blood circulation and collagen production in the tissue is also significantly stimulated.

Scientific research has proven that the X-Wave treatment stimulates microcirculation in the tissue. An accelerated blood flow and vasomotor activity stimulate lipolysis, whereas a slower blood flow causes fat storage.  All of these effects reduce the dimpled effect of the skin that is cellulite.  And because the X-Wave is clinically modified to ensure a lower energy level is pulsed to the target area, any tissue damage or skin lesions in the treatment area are completely avoided.

The treatment can be used on most areas of the body including the arms, stomach, love handles, thighs and buttocks.  Six to eight sessions are usually recommended, either once or twice a week. As this is a non-invasive treatment, it is comfortable and painless and results include improvement in the skin’s texture and elasticity, as well as dermal firming and a reduction in the dimpled appearance of the skin.

After completing 8 sessions, the skin will continue to improve for up to six months after the last treatment. BTL X-Wave therapy is safe for patients of all ages who are showing signs of aging or want to improve problem areas where exercise and/or diet have plateaued.

Acoustic wave therapy has been used medically for many years to treat various medical conditions from kidney stones to soft tissue injuries such as Achilles tendonitis.  The BTL X-Wave is thus also effective in treating muscle spasms and other areas that require repair and regeneration.  It can also be used as a combination treatment with other BTL procedures such as the BTL Exilis Elite, an advanced radiofrequency and ultrasound, treatment, for optimal fat reduction results.

After years of marginal successes from anti-cellulite treatments, we are finally able to access a truly revolutionary therapy that is scientifically proven to reduce cellulite and fatty deposits.  BTL Aesthetics has revolutionised the way to offer the most advanced non-invasive solutions for body shaping, skin tightening & other medical aesthetic treatments.
