BTL X-Wave is a new and efficient treatment for cellulite reduction through the application of shock waves.

Specialists recommend mesotherapy sessions, lymphatic drainage and a healthy and balanced diet to combat cellulite, but for some years now there has been a new medical procedure that is gaining more and more followers, the BTL X-Wave.

This is an innovative technique that uses high energy acoustic waves, which penetrate the body generating vibrations in the connective tissue of the epidermis, where the fat cells are located, acting on them and reducing their size and volume.

Currently, the technology used by X-Wave is one of the most efficient treatments to counteract cellulite and orange peel skin. But it not only reduces cellulite and fatty skin, but also has other medical applications (physiotherapy, rehabilitation...), depending on the tissues that are worked on.

  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage and activates circulation.
  • Increases the production of elastin and collagen.
  • Prevents skin flaccidity.
  • Rejuvenates body tissue.
  • Prevents stretch marks and attenuates existing ones.

BTL X-Wave is an effective shock wave treatment that is characterized by its simplicity and for being painless and non-invasive; and with a few sessions the patients embellish their figure and, at the same time, improve their health.

Likewise, patients state that discomfort is non-existent or null during treatment with BTL X-Wave, with the advantage that it does not require anesthesia, so the person can immediately resume their daily routine. Improvements are perceived from the first session. Therefore, the level of patient satisfaction is high.


How many BTL X Wave sessions are needed?

For each specific case, an appropriate treatment plan is designed based on the required needs. Typically, most patients undergo 4-6 sessions over the course of several weeks. The session is usually 7-10 minutes depending on the area being treated and the degree of the condition. Most often 2 sessions per week are scheduled. Studies have shown that patients show visible improvements after a single session, but results vary depending on a variety of factors.

The immediately noticeable effects continue to improve in the medium and long term.

The treatment itself is quick, comfortable, and painless. The patient only notices a slight sensation of heat that, on very few occasions, is annoying. No type of pain reliever or anesthesia is required, not even topical. After the treatment, the patient will not have any discomfort and will be able to continue with her daily activities as normal.

Depending on the needs of each patient, a year or two after the first treatment another can be carried out to further improve the results. The number of treatments will depend on the level of sagging of the skin and the additional care that is carried out.

It has been clinically proven that the BTL X-Wave treatment contributes to alleviating the causes that cause an irregular surface of the skin, significantly improving its appearance. The treatment improves microcirculation and oxygen distribution in the affected area.

What are shock waves for cellulite?

Shock wave treatment is one of the most efficient and advanced options in current medicine to deal with cellulite, one of the most common and annoying problems for women —in a greater percentage—.

State-of-the-art shock wave technology consists of applying acoustic waves that reach the tissue through an application by pressure, causing the breakdown of fat deposits that are responsible for cellulite and the appearance of orange peel skin.

Through vibrations, three simultaneous results are achieved that help not only to reduce fat cells, but also to tone the treated area: stimulates metabolism and hence, speeds up the waste disposal process; increases blood flow; and activates the production of elastin and collagen, thus improving the texture and firmness of the skin.

A complete treatment with shock waves manages to reduce the perceptible signs of all types of cellulite, with a shaping, reducing and firming effect.

This procedure is safe for patients of any age and for all skin types. It is sometimes used by patients who want an additional effect for another non-invasive aesthetic treatment. However, as an independent treatment it is an effective option for cellulite reduction, especially for those women who want an aesthetic improvement without the need for a recovery period.
