Cellulite Treatment with AWT
Target Hard and Edematous Cellulite
Cellulite is so obstinate and stubborn that it can feel like the bane of your life. It’s said to affect 80% of women, but men can develop it too. The orange-peel, dimpled look comes from fat deposits pushing up between criss-crossed tissue strands under the skin. Found most commonly on hips, buttocks, stomach and thighs, it can first show its bumpy face as early as puberty.
Hard or solid cellulite is more common in younger women, and is generally found around the hips, upper thighs as well as back and inside of the knees. Hard cellulite is usually one of the first outward signs of cellulite and can start as early as in your teenage years. The skin is dimpled and affected areas don’t change with body movement or when lying down. Without treatment it may never be eliminated.
Edematous cellulite is the least common type of cellulite and also the most difficult to treat. It results from problems of poor circulation aggravated by significant fluid retention. It mainly occurs in the legs -thighs, knees and lower legs, which lose definition and shape. There may also be signs such as water-retention, swelling, varicose veins, cramp, etc.
The good news is at Aesthetics Lab we have just the treatment to specifically target hard and edematous cellulite. Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is a superb multi-tasker that uses acoustic energy to target hard and edematous cellulite in a 2-pronged way. Firstly, the energy when precisely targeted to treatment areas creates heat to stimulate fat break down. At the same time, this heat boosts collagen production and lymphatic drainage for better skin tone and texture. Connective tissues are also strengthened which prevents fat deposits pushing through and causing dimpling.
This clinically-proven solution for cellulite is quick and pain free with no downtime at all. You should see a noticeable improvement in cellulite while reducing the circumference of the treated area. Better still, results may be seen in as little as after the 2nd treatment. *

Your treatment step by step
Acoustic Wave Therapy consultation
During your consultation with one of our highly-experienced Aestheticians, we will find out more about your concerns and goals and talk through the treatment in detail. We’ll go through your medical history and analyse the areas you’re looking to treat in order to prepare a suitable treatment plan. Your consultation is a good opportunity to ask any questions you might have – we’ll always answer openly and honestly.
We’ll also give you a detailed before and after care plan with lots of advice on skin care, body brushing and how to stay hydrated.
Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment
At your first treatment, we’ll take photos of the area to be treated for your medical records and to help us chart your treatment progress.
We’ll begin the treatment by prepping your body with a lymphatic drainage massage to increase circulation. The acoustic wave energy is delivered via a probe held against the areas to be treated. This comfortable and pain-free treatment is completed with another round of lymphatic drainage massage and anti-cellulite cream.
After Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment
There is no downtime to this treatment so you can resume your day as normal. We recommend drinking plenty of water and scheduling an exercise session or walk for 30 minutes on the day of your treatment to speed up metabolism, aid lymphatic drainage and toxin elimination.
