Frequently Asked Questions
3D-Lipo Shockwave Questions
How does Shockwave work for cellulite?
Sound waves stimulate the microcirculation within the fat layer, increasing the metabolic function of the area and increasing cellular membrane permeability. Free fatty acids and glycerol are released from the far cells and sit in the intercellular space. Lymphatic movement and increased blood supply removes these wast products from the body.
How does Shockwave work for skin tightening?
Sound waves stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation within the area. They also stimulate the connective tissue and septa mobility giving the skin a firmer tone and reducing the dimples within the skin.
How many treatments of 3D-Cavitation is recommended?
A course of 8 3D-CAVITATION treatments is recommended, however results can be seen after one treatment with an average inch loss of 2-4cm per treatment. Further courses may be required to reach your desired result.
Can I combine 3D-CAVITATION with other treatments?

What can I experience during a 3D-CAVITATION treatment?
3D-CAVITATION treatment is generally pain free however heat may occur depending on the size of the area being treated. During the treatment a handheld device delivers a low frequency ultra sound wave which can be heard as a slight buzzing.
What happens during a 3D-CAVITATION treatment?
During 3D-CAVITATION the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the 3D-CAVITATION treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed by the body's natural mechanisms.
