Cellulite is a cosmetic issue that around 90% of women experience. It most commonly shows up on the buttocks and back of the thighs, and it takes the appearance of dimpled skin.
A lot of women seek treatment for it to smooth out their skin and give it a more polished look.
Are you looking for a way to treat your cellulite? You may feel caught between two common types of treatment: Cellfina and Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT).
Instead of just settling for one, you may benefit from integrating the two treatments.
Here, we’ll explore the benefits of integrating Cellfina and Acoustic Wave Therapy for cellulite.
What Causes Cellulite?
To understand how these two treatments work together, you first need to be familiar with what causes cellulite.
There is no singular cause. Instead, five key factors drive its development:
- Tight fibrous cords (called septa) that pull down on your skin’s undersurface
- The swelling and enlargement of fat cells underneath your skin
- Poor blood circulation
- Reduced lymphatic drainage
- Diminished elastin and collagen (which are necessary for preventing sagging and maintaining skin firmness)
Because of these multiple causes of cellulite, one treatment method may not be effective. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may need to integrate Cellfina and AWT. Together, they can deliver long-lasting and full results.
How Does Cellfina Treat Cellulite?
The first cause of cellulite we listed (the tightening of your skin’s septa) is one of the most prominent factors that contribute to its appearance.
Cellfina is a proven way to release the tension built in your skin’s septa. It’s the only FDA-approved procedure that produces durable and long-lasting results.
However, Cellfina only targets this primary cause of cellulite. It fails to address the other four sources that create this condition.
Luckily, that’s where Acoustic Wave Therapy comes into play.
How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy for Cellulite Work?
AWT is an excellent alternative to other treatments like lasers, ultrasounds, and radiofrequency. These treatments can’t improve blood circulation or enhance lymphatic flow.
Acoustic Wave Therapy makes up for Cellfina’s shortcomings. Some benefits of AWT are that it:
- Reduces enlarged fat lobules that cause skin ballooning and abnormal tissue growth
- Promotes the formation of new blood vessels, which improves blood circulation
- Enhances lymphatic drainage, which improves the appearance of skin waviness
- Promotes the growth of collagen and elastin, which tighten the skin and reduce sagging
AWT also loosens some of your skin’s fibrous septa. This effect reduces the appearance of dimples and bumps on your skin. However, it’s not nearly efficient in this regard as Cellfina.
Why Should I Combine the Two Treatments?
While both Cellfina and AWT can be effective on their own, they produce the most noticeable results when combined.
Cellfina actively loosens your skin’s septa, while AWT targets the other four causes of cellulite.
