Would I use it again?
My personal experience with the shockwave therapy treatment has been highly successful, I had this treatment targeted to my inner thighs, back of thighs and butt area.
After three treatments I found that stretch marks on my inner thighs, that I have had for years has been significantly reduced and not easily visible any longer, additionally, my butt is much firmer with a lift just after four treatments.
My skin is smoother and the cellulite is significantly less visible.
I also did not make any lifestyle changes during this time in diet and exercise, however, I loved the results so much that it motivated my to get moving and begin an exercise regimen to further enhance the results after the six treatments.
Shockwave therapy is the boost cellulite needs to be reduced or eliminated.
Most patients have seen significant results, which cannot be obtained with creams, massages, etc. Shockwave therapy allows for a deeper vibration to the fatty tissue whilst other treatments target just the surface of the skin, which is not effective in cellulite therapy.
