What You Should Know
With all of the claims out there saying they can give you smoother skin and reduced visibility of cellulite, it’s hard to know who’s telling the truth. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of creams and salves that have been put on the market, each promising new and innovative results. Well now there’s another alternative to check out if you want.
Acoustic Wave Therapy is a cellulite treatment. The idea is to send “acoustic pulses” to the skin, thus smoothing out and firming the appearance of cellulite. The procedure claims to reduce sun damage and smooth out the appearance of cellulite by sending those acoustic pulses to the cells that are holding on to the stubborn fat that is “trapped” just underneath the skin which gives you that cottage cheese appearance.
MedSurge Advances, Inc. distributes the acoustic wave therapy to physicians all over the country. They also distribute other medical machinery to different medical offices around the nation. MedSurge Advances, Inc. was formerly known as Med-Surge Technologies, Inc. The company was founded in 2002 and has its headquarters in Dallas, TX.
List Of Ingredients
Acoustic Wave Therapy is delivered by a handheld machine that is supposed to deliver the pulses through your skin, causing the blood to rise closer to the surface through the tissues of your skin. The machine basically massages your body’s tissues and helps make your skin appear smoother. The intensity of this machine makes your body produce more collagen and elastin, which is what makes your skin appear smoother. The machine has been used for years with people who have joint disorders. It triggers your body’s anti-inflammatory response so that you produce more collagen and elastin.
The idea for this treatment is for those who already practice a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise, but cannot seem to recontour or get rid of the cellulite on their own. This is not recommended for those who are not in good shape and have not tried other alternatives such as working out, eating right, and losing weight.
Most treatments last from 6 to 10 minutes. The area can be treated as frequently as 2 times per week, but many of the physicians say most people need up to 12 treatments to see results. You can treat the stomach, the buttocks, the thighs, love handles (flanks), knees, and even arms.
- Delivered by a trained professional.
- Proven technology in the treatment of joint disorders.
- Lasting results.
- You must get this treatment done at a medical spa or cosmetic surgeon’s office by a professional which can be costly.
- Just because the technology works for one reason, does not guarantee results for another.
- The time and extent of treatment seems extensive.
This is a very non-traditional weight loss treatment. It seems to us that it requires a lot of time and energy to use consistently. If you’re at a spa that offers Acoustic Wave Therapy, it might be interesting to try, but we don’t see the clinical evidence to warrant seeking this treatment out as a one-stop weight loss solution.
