Cellulite is a condition that causes a dimpled appearance in skin and affects mostly women. What most women don’t know, there’s a treatment for that! The Slimspec is specifically designed for cellulite and body firming treatments based on Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy (ARWT). Slimspec treatments can be performed on cellulite affected areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs or buttocks.
Acoustic Radial Waves are unfocused, low pressure waves designed to penetrate the tissue while affecting a large treatment area. The body responds to the Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy (ARWT) by increasing the metabolic activity around the site of the treated area. The waves are transferred into the tissue, reducing the fat tissue edema and improving the lymphatic drainage of the toxins. Ultimately, collagen structure is restored, the skin becomes more elastic and its firmness is visible after only a few treatments.
The treatment generates an instant reaction of a butterfly-like effect. The body responds to the therapeutic medical wave by increasing metabolic activity around the site of the treated area. The waves reduce the tissue oedema which is one of the initial phenomena of the cellulite. Reduction of oedema causes less puffiness of the skin. The tissue becomes more permeable so the fluids and the toxins retained within the fat cells are being released and drained by the lymphatic system. By reducing the toxins, through reduction of oedema, there is less damage to the collagen fibers, thus, less degeneration and tighter holding of the skin.
• The abdomen
Cellulite is a condition that primarily affects women (up to 90%), but it can also affect men. Due to fat accumulation in the subcutaneous tissue, the skin surface of the lower limbs, particularly the thighs, hips, and buttocks, but also the abdomen and pelvic region, becomes dimpled after puberty. It’s sometimes referred to as “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” skin. Although increased fatty tissue load may aggravate the condition, it is not specific to overweight women.
Collagen and elastin fibers are found in all skin tissue. Collagen is a fibrous protein that provides the structure and strength of skin. The same collagen also forms a series of fat-storage compartments (septae) within the skin, which provide structural support and insulation when functioning normally. However, as a result of several hormonal processes that occur after puberty, the septae can no longer hold the excess fat if those compartments become over-full and rigid. The septae bend or break, and the fat bulges out towards the skin’s surface, resulting in unsightly lumps. Rapid weight loss and gain, as well as dehydration, are all contributing factors, with genetics being the most important of all.
Yes, the treatment is safe, and no side effects have been reported. Because the wave energy is unfocused, it decreases proportionally to the penetration depth, causing no harm to any internal organ.
The recommended treatment schedule is twice weekly for six weeks, followed by one maintenance treatment every three months. Each Slimspec treatment lasts about 20 minutes and is comfortable and relaxing. The patient can resume normal activities immediately after the treatment is completed.
Following the initial evaluation of the patient, the professional caregiver should provide the patient with realistic treatment expectations based on the patient’s cellulite level, BMI, and overall skin condition. Although individual results may vary, most treated patients will notice a significant improvement in cellulite, skin elasticity, and firmness within 6 weeks. Skin elasticity will be fully restored at 3- and 6-month follow-ups.
The treatment itself could take up to 20 minutes.
No, the treatment is completely painless with no reported side effects.
Expect to see a visible reduction in the appearance of cellulite and a gradual smoothening of your skin’s surface.
No, this treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime.
