You can have cellulite due to the uneven distribution of fat cells and thinning skin, which makes the dimpling more noticeable. Although most people assume cellulite occurs due to fat, it is because your collagen fibers bind against your fat cells, causing an uneven appearance. San Diego cellulite treatment using shockwave cavitation can help smooth out your skin, improving its appearance.
The process is quick, taking around ten minutes to complete one session. Your healthcare provider will discuss the treatment details before they perform it.
What is shockwave cavitation?
Shockwave cavitation is a non-invasive procedure that aims to improve your appearance by smoothening dimpled skin. The treatment will release tight collagen, redistribute your fat cells, and have your new tissues grow with stronger collagen support.
The procedure uses sound waves to break down the tight collagen fibers and employs your lymphatic drainage system to eliminate waste materials.
Since the procedure is quick and non-invasive, it requires minimal downtime to help deal with the minor side effects. After the treatment, you might experience bruising, itchy skin, warmth, tenderness, and stiff skin and tissue. Although the side effects will disappear, you must provide ample healing time to your skin. Your doctor might recommend 21 days between treatment sessions.
How many treatment sessions do you need?
Your specialist will evaluate your symptoms before recommending the number of treatments that you require. If you have severe skin dimpling, you might need more treatment sessions than someone with mild skin dimpling. Usually, three sessions are enough to yield results, but your doctor can recommend more or less depending on your situation.
How to make your results last longer
After successful treatment, you should follow several guidelines to help your results last longer and keep your skin smooth and even. Such instructions include:
Maintaining a healthy weight
Maintaining a healthy weight translates to a healthy BMI and reducing certain conditions like high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. You must check your dietary needs, portions, and physical activity levels to maintain a healthy weight.
Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated
To reduce the appearance of cellulite, you must consume healthy proteins and foods that promote collagen production. Think of protein sources like chicken, fish, bone broth, and seeds. Reduce your intake of foods with added sugars, salts, and saturated fat. Remember to stay hydrated and carry a water bottle whenever necessary. While the results from the treatment are permanent, you can create new fat cells through a poor diet.
Regular exercise will help you burn off extra calories stored as fat. Whether you engage in strength training or aerobic exercises, your muscles will become firmer, giving you a smoother appearance. Focus on lower body exercises that target your buttocks and thighs.
