Los Angeles:West LA Medical & Skincare, Los Angeles, one of the pioneers in non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation, has introduced Acoustic Wave Therapy, a new FDA approved treatment for the effective reduction of cellulite.
There are two major causes of cellulite; the hardening of the connective tissue that is the support system for fat; and the protrusion of fat cells into the lower part of the skin. This protrusion results in the dimpling effect of cellulite. Cellulite treatments need to address both major causes in order to produce effective results. Until now, there have been few to address one or the other effectively, and none that address both.
West LA Medical & Skincare is one of the first practices in the United States to have access to a new treatment that addresses both issues with minimal pain and side effects. This treatment is known as Acoustic Wave Therapy. (AWT)
Acoustic Wave Therapy utilizes pressure waves that impact both of the major causes of cellulite: fibrous septae and protrusion of fat into the lower dermis. The AWT produces a pressure wave that passes through skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. The pressure breaks up the collagen of the septae and releases the skin, allowing a smoother surface.
AWT also helps to thicken the dermis and decrease fat protrusion. Ultrasound pictures have confirmed this dermal thickening after treatments. The thickening of the dermis, in turn, helps to reduce the protrusion of fat into the dermis, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Dr. David P Melamed, M.D., M.Sc., at West LA Medical & Skincare states “I’ve been working with cellulite and treatment studies for many years. Never before have I seen results as dramatic as Acoustic Wave Therapy can offer.” “I am especially excited to combine this new therapy with the other body contouring treatments we currently provide in order to produce even greater results for our patients”
Many different treatments for cellulite have been introduced over the years, most with poor results. Now, Acoustic Wave Therapy represents an important breakthrough in the effective reduction of visible cellulite.
