X-Wave™

Cellulite Treatment with Acoustic Waves

The X-Wave™ treatment offers:

  • Effective reduction of cellulite
  • Skin tightening
  • Increased tissue perfusion and oxygenation
  • Enhancement of local metabolism
  • Drainage of retained fluids
  • Reduction of stretch marks
  • Improvement of scarring

The X-Wave™ treatment is based on the acoustic waves’ action, which cause vibrations–oscillations on the tissue at a depth of 2.5 - 3 cm. Through this process, the acoustic waves transfer more blood to the areas with cellulite (buttocks, thighs, abdomen, stomach, arms). The enhanced perfusion transfers fresh oxygen and nutrients that nourish and repair tissues.

X-Wave™ combats fat cells swelling

In addition, oxygen transfer at the area increases both local fat burning processes and local metabolism, thus contributing in the reduction of oversized fat cells, a significant factor for the formation of cellulite. This allows transforming cellulite from a chronic to an acute condition, i.e. it becomes “softer” and much easier to treat.
At the same time it stimulates lymphatic circulation resulting in faster elimination of fat, toxins and accumulated fluids from the treatment area, which cause connective tissue deformities.
In addition, the vibration produced by the acoustic waves on tissues has a positive effect on fibroblasts, too. The vibration causes expansion and proliferation resulting in the production of more collagen, which actively regenerates hypertrophic collagen and elastin fibres that are the cause of the characteristic “dimples” on the skin.

Significant improvement of skin relaxation

Increased collagen excretion contributes in combating skin relaxation at the treatment area, if present, as well as in improving the appearance of any scars and stretch marks.
X-Wave™ is a painless procedure. The pulses are felt like mild pounding, without causing any discomfort. It is a perfectly safe treatment and it is being used for many years in other fields of medicine, such as cardiology and orthopaedics. The X-Wave™ has been approved by the US FDA.
Just after the first session the skin becomes smoother, tighter and well-shaped, without the unsightly orange peel appearance that – according to the relevant estimates – is a problem that annoys over 90% of the female population. The best part is that the results continue to improve constantly during the next three months, as collagen layer reconstruction is evolving and blood circulation is improving.

FAQs

How does the X-Wave™ treatment work against cellulite?
The main causes that lead to the formation of cellulite are:
  • Oversized fat cells
  • Reduced production of collagen and elastin
  • Reduced perfusion at the area, leading to poor inflow of nutrients in tissues
  • Reduced elimination of toxins, causing connective tissue deformities
X-Wave™ treatment creates vibrations in the connective tissue, resulting in:
  • Increased microcirculation, oxygenation and metabolic rate of the area;
  • Proliferation of fibroblasts which subsequently produce more collagen fibres and create a fresh supportive structure for the skin,
  • Mechanical stimulation of the lymphatic and vascular systems, which leads to the reduction of local swelling and improves the elimination of lipids from the fat cells.

Skin texture and elasticity are improved soon after the treatment, while the appearance of cellulite is considerably reduced.

What body areas can be treated with the X-Wave™ treatment?
The X-Wave™ treatment can combat cellulite at the arms, stomach, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, knees and legs.
Is the treatment painful?
The X-Wave™ treatment is a painless procedure. The pulses are felt like mild pounding, without causing any discomfort.
Is the X-Wave™ treatment safe?
The acoustic waves are being used for many years in medicine for the treatment of various conditions, such as the destruction of kidney (lithotripsy), chronic skeletal pain and soft tissue inures, such as Achilles tendon tendonitis. In addition they are utilised in cardiology, urology (for prostatitis), gynaecology (to increase blood flow to the uterus before IVF), even in veterinary medicine (for arthritis in horses). The treatment is clinically proven and it is recognised as a very safe and effective procedure. It is also worth noting that the X-Wave™ device has been approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Are there any side effects?
It is possible that burning sensation, erythema (redness) and mild bruising may occur at the area that received treatment. This is normal; the symptoms resolve after 4-5 days when you can resume routine activities.
How many sessions are required?
The extent and severity of cellulite define the number of sessions which ranges from 4 to 12, with 2-3 sessions on a weekly basis, because a 48-hour period between sessions is required. After the completion of the treatment cycle, monthly session is suggested to maintain the results.
How soon will I see my results?
Usually the results are evident after the 3rd-4th session and get constantly better for the next three months, as collagen layer reconstruction is evolving and blood circulation is improving.
How long do the results last?
The result is long-term thanks to the significant improvement of skin elasticity and stimulation of the natural healing mechanism.

For many years I could not wear what I liked due to cellulite. I was not feeling comfortable with my partner. I was ashamed to go to the beach. With X-Wave the improvement was impressive! Thank you!

I selected the X-WAVE procedure and the results were amazing really quickly with no pain at all!!
