An estimated 85 to 90% of adult women have cellulite, regardless of their weight or shape. Cellulite forms when fibrous bands called “septae,” which connect the skin to the underlying muscle fascia, tighten irregularly, pulling down on the skin, and/or begin to break down, allowing the normal layer of fat beneath the skin to push upward. This results in the puckering or “cottage cheese” appearance. The aging process can worsen the appearance of cellulite, as skin loses elasticity and is less able to resist irregular tension created by the fibrous bands. Ultrasonic waves (X-wave) tighten both the skin and the fibrous septae, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite.
The X-Wave modified acoustic wave pulses induce vibration in the targeted connective tissue, which in turn increases blood flow, stimulates lipolysis and induces collagen production. As a result, the skin firmness and elasticity improves, fat deposits are eliminated and the skin appears smoother. X-Wave is clinically modified to ensure a lower energy level is pulsed to the target area, so any tissue damage in the treatment area are avoided.
The common target areas include: thighs, buttocks, love handles, abdomen, arms. During the treatment 6000 pulses are delivered per area. The treatment is comfortable and painless and results include improvement in the skin’s texture and elasticity, as well as dermal firming and a reduction in the dimpled appearance of the skin. A course of six to eight weekly sessions is recommended. The skin will continue to improve for up to six months after the last treatment. BTL X-Wave therapy is safe for patients of all ages who want to improve problem areas resistant to exercise and/or diet. Combining non-surgical procedures such as X-wave for skin smoothing, Exilis Elite for fat reduction and Lymphtism for lymphatic drainage, can significantly improve the overall body contouring result achieved.
After years of marginal successes from anti-cellulite treatments, we are finally able to access a truly revolutionary therapy that is scientifically proven to reduce cellulite and fatty deposits.
