Acoustic shockwave method

Acoustic shockwave methodThese days a large number of methods for body contours correction as well as cellulite treatment are being used: from classical massage as well as different types of medical wrapping to surgical correction. Therefore, it is difficult for a patient to choose the method that suits him/her best. Moreover, the patient doesn’t know what result to expect.

The most common problem that women want to solve - cellulite on thighs, buttocks and/or abdominal region.

There are 4 main stages of cellulite (panniculitis). Depending on the stage, it is necessary to decide how to get rid of it and what method to choose:

Stage I - cellulite (orange peel) is visible only when you squeeze it. In this case massages, wraps and medical apparatus are used.

Stage II - signs of cellulite are seen while you are standing; however, if you lie down - they disappear. In this case the effectiveness of massage is low. Hence, medical apparatus is used.


Stage III - signs of cellulite are visible while standing or lying. It is a more difficult stage and the principle of vacuum massage treatment, which is based on the majority of medical apparatus methods, is not effective or little effective. The best treatment method for this stage is acoustic shockwave therapy. This method is often called non-surgical liposuction due to the fact that after the treatment triglycerides are removed from fat cells without harming them. The fat cell volume decreases, which results in visible improvements.

Stage IV - rough, large subcutaneous nodes are visible while standing or lying. In this case acoustic shockwave method or surgical treatment are used.

Acoustic shockwave therapy
Acoustic shockwave therapy is a painless, safe, and effective procedure that is appropriate for II-IV cellulite stages. During the non-surgical liposuction procedure, acoustic shockwave affects the body's tissues till 6 cm in depth without harming the tissues themselves. The content of fat cells easily passes through cell walls and is removed through lymphatic and blood vessels. This is the safest and healthiest way of fat elimination.

IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
The procedure is painless; skin redness is visible after the procedure, but it quickly passes away.

In conclusion, we can distinguish the following acoustic shockwave therapy benefits:

  • Visible and clinically proven effect; 
  • Fat separation and removal occur in a natural way without harming the body’s metabolism;
  • No harm is done to the integrity of the skin;
  • No need for a rehabilitation period; 
  • The method is safe and without complications.
Our advantages
  • Each type of aesthetic changes (cellulite or fatty deposits, loose-hanging skin) requires a different correction method. Vilnius Laser Dermatology Centre employs all the methods of aesthetic correction of skin changes, that is why you will get what is the most relevant to you rather than what we currently have.
  • We use only clinically proven methods (their efficiency has been confirmed in clinical trials).
  • Our proposed methods produce better results in a shorter period of time (e.g. 4 Exilis procedures often deliver a better result than 20 sessions of a fairly good masseur who performs procedures with the help of his hands).
  • In case our methods don’t help, the only possible effective step is surgical intervention.
  • Exilis or acoustic shockwave procedure (X-WAVE) (BTL) is non-invasive (no anesthesia, no cuts and no surgical intervention are applied). These methods can be used individually or combined to achieve the best result.
