What is Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT)?
 Skin elasticity decreases with age. In 80% of women, the orange peel appearance begins to appear, especially around the abdomen, hips, legs and hips and upper arm. Cellulite appears as an image that negatively affects the quality of life and the enjoyment of life and reduces the person's self-confidence.
 Although the effectiveness of the treatment varies from person to person, it is usually possible to get good results after 6-8 sessions, in other words 3-4 weeks.

Cellulite War!

Cellulite is a problem that occurs frequently in women and affects areas such as the abdomen, hips, hips and upper arms. Especially in cases such as malnutrition, sedentary life, smoking, insomnia or pregnancy, the connective tissue weakens and collagen fibers can lose their elasticity.

The imbalance between fat production and fat burning in the cells supports the formation of large fat cells and prepares the ground for cellulite. The deterioration of the structure of the connective tissue causes the formation of a bumpy structure on the skin surface. This is the typical orange peel appearance.

Everything You Need to Know About Acoustic Wave Therapy
