What is HiPuls Shockwave Therapy?

As fat cells grow larger, they get trapped under the skin which causes the surface of the skin to start to bulge. This leads to a telltale dimpling appearance on the skin that we know as cellulite. Blood flow is disrupted from the surface of the skin.

Shock wave therapy or “Lighting” is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes acoustic sound waves that target cellulite. The generated sound waves enter the body and spread across the areas with cellulite and stimulate the treatment. This results in the reduction of the cellulite’s appearance on the skin.

HiPuls Shock wave therapy is a clinically approved, non-invasive treatment which allows a patient to target cellulite and fat cells without the need for liposuction.
This treatment best addresses the following conditions:

  • Cellulite
  • Excess adipose tissue
  • Leg lymphostasis
  • Leg oedema

FAQs

Radial pressure waves break down fat cells and restore flexibility to the connective tissues around the cellulite. This also causes an increase in blood supply that speeds up the removal of waste products from fat cells. Blood flow increases which allows the waste fluids to drain efficiently. Shockwaves also stimulate activity in the cell, which results in tighter, smoother looking skin. Skin and connective tissue will tighten and regain their natural elasticity.

At the start of the procedure, a generous amount of gel is swathed onto the target area. This enables the better conduction of acoustic waves through the tissues. The device is then applied to the treatment area.

Ideally, ten treatments are recommended in order to get optimum results. The procedures are done in an interval of 3 to 4 days. Full results are noticeable in approximately 2 to 3 months after the completion of the last treatment.

The treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete. You will not feel any pain during the treatment.

Patients will observe some skin discoloration around the target areas post-treatment, but this is temporary and will fade shortly.

Patients can expect to see the following results after a treatment:

  • The disintegration of adipose tissue
  • Enhanced skin elasticity
  • Improved body contour
  • Reduction of cellulite, oedema, and adipose tissue
  • Smoother skin

Usually, it takes 2-3 sessions to see proper results. Patients are advised to consume 2 liters of water every day to help the process of natural excretion.

As with all procedures, please consult with your doctor to ensure that you are a good candidate for this treatment. In general, patients with the following conditions are advised against undergoing the procedure:

  • Breastfeeding mothers
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney issues
  • Liver issues
  • Metal implants
  • Pregnancy
