The art of being comfortable in your own skin
Over the years, many people have fought in vain against stubborn pockets of fat or cellulite that failed to respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise. Until recently, the only effective options for achieving smooth skin were invasive. Now, Bodyology is excited to offer ZWave Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to improve the texture of the skin, treat cellulite, and contour the body.
What is Acoustic Wave Therapy
AWT uses radial acoustic waves to improve the texture and elasticity of the skin. It can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, reduce cellulite, and contour the body. It is not a weight-loss treatment, but instead, it is a tool to achieve improved results where diet and exercise alone were not successful. A 2017 study published by the National Institutes of Health showed smaller hip and thigh circumference, reduction of cellulite, and improved quality of life after a series of treatments with Acoustic Wave Therapy.
How Z-Wave Works
When the skin and underlying fat deposits are exposed to the radial acoustic waves, subcutaneous fat and the surrounding gas is broken down and flushed through the body’s lymphatic system. Fat deposits continue to be eliminated long after the treatment ends. The increased blood flow, reinforced connective tissue, increased collagen production, and accelerated cell regeneration results in firmer, more elastic, and smoother looking skin.
What Results Can I Expect
Anywhere on the body that has stubborn fat deposits or reduced skin elasticity can be improved. Typical problem areas like thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, knees, and the abdomen respond well to body contouring. A series of at least ten treatments are recommended. Results can be seen as early as two to three weeks after beginning AWS and will continue for several weeks after treatment.
Another benefit of Acoustic Wave Therapy is an increase in new blood vessels. It has led to a treatment for heart patients, injury recovery, and even erectile dysfunction. A 2019 study concluded that AWS significantly improved the ability of men with ED to achieve erections after treatment. Shock wave therapy is painless and is a vast improvement over pills, shots, and pumps previously used to treat erectile dysfunction.
