What is Shockwave?

  • Shockwave therapy promotes fat breakdown, collagen formation, and lymphatic drainage. Shockwave therapy is administered by pressing a probe against regions of cellulite; when the probe passes over the area, it generates Radial Waves through the skin.
What to expect?

  • Slight to mild discomfort during the procedure.
  • Sore that is similar after doing muscle workouts.

Results
