How does X Wave™ work?
Acoustic waves are sound pulses that induce vibration within the body. The strong, (painless) and non-focused pressure waves break down the adhesive fibrous bands in the skin. This increases the blood supply to the treated area, remodels collagen and connective tissue, releases puckers and dimples and improves the elimination of waste around the cells. Acoustic waves also thicken the dermis and tone up muscles. The overall result is a firmer and more toned appearance of the skin and muscles.
Commonly treated areas include:
- Inner or outer thighs
- Upper arms
What happens during the X Wave™ procedure?
During the treatment, you will lie comfortably on the bed while the therapist moves the hand piece in a continuous motion over the treated area. The hand piece emits pressure waves which is heard as a loud, pulsating, repetitive sound. Expect a gentle, pummeling sensation on the skin which feels like a stimulating massage. There is no pain, and no anesthesia is required. Most people find the treatment relaxing and comfortable. Treatment times are approximately 15 minutes per body area.
Note: It is important to be well-hydrated by drinking at least 10 glasses of water a few days before and after the treatment. This helps the body to eliminate waste more efficiently which can help results.
