X-Wave treatments are short, not painful and still highly effective to treat cellulite and help with skin tightening and stretch marks. The X-Wave uses specially modified acoustic wave pulses that induce vibration in the targeted connective tissue. The tissue relaxes and stretches as a result of which the firmness and elasticity of the epidermis increases. Acoustic wave therapy has a complex multilayer effect which means that blood circulation and collagen production in the tissue is also significantly stimulated. Scientific research has proven that the X-Wave treatment stimulates microcirculation in the tissue. An accelerated blood flow and vasomotor activity stimulate lipolysis, whereas a slower blood flow causes fat storage. All of these effects reduce the dimpled effect of the skin that is cellulite.
