There may not be a fountain of youth, but at A Touch Above Chiropractic, we offer radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) for safe, non-invasive body contouring and skin tightening. Dr. Andy and Dr. Jen are Level 1 and Level 2 certified by the Academy of Shockwave Excellence, and have been using this cutting-edge technology for over five years, with excellent results.

Radial Shockwave Therapy for Skin Firming Cosmetic Care

Radial shockwave therapy, also called acoustic wave therapy or extracorporeal shockwave therapy, works by directing high-peak sound waves into targeted tissues. These waves generate changes in the tissues, from pain relief to breaking down cellulite. While the technology was originally developed as a non-invasive means of breaking up kidney stones, it has been widely studied and shown to have many benefits.

For cosmetic purposes, RSWT is a safe, non-invasive skin-tightening procedure that many clients have found effective.

How Does It Work?

The force of the acoustic waves causes changes in the tissues. The waves break down the connective tissue walls that create cellulite, increase blood flow to the treated area, stimulate collagen production, and facilitate lymphatic drainage to flush out the fat that it has broken down.

When the cellulite is broken down and collagen formation increases, you can experience tighter, firmer, smoother skin.

This therapy is completely non-invasive and relatively pain-free, with no needles or side effects.

Who Can Benefit from RSWT Skin Tightening?

We see clients of all ages who want to reduce or eliminate cellulite, firm up their skin, and reduce stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles. Whether your “problem areas” are on your face, hips, thighs, tummy or anywhere on the body, RSWT therapy may help firm the tissues and smooth the surface of the skin for a more youthful, radiant appearance.

Shockwave therapy can’t be used during pregnancy, or if you have a malignancy or active infection. Not all people are good candidates for RSWT skin tightening procedures. We will do a thorough consultation and examination to determine if RSWT is right for you.

What to Expect

You’ll sit down with your doctor and discuss your concerns and goals, and they’ll do an examination. Based on this, we’ll determine if RSWT is a good option for your cosmetic goals.

If it is, we’ll begin treatment. We use a handheld device to direct the sound waves into the areas of your body you wish to change. Treatment will be between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas we work on.

The number of treatments needed to achieve your goals depends on your unique situation, but we suggest between eight and ten sessions for each area. Results vary depending on many factors, including your overall health. Staying properly hydrated and eating healthy foods can help you get the best results possible.

Maintenance Care

Aging never stops, and neither does gravity. We recommend maintenance care once a month to help your skin stay firm and counteract the effects of Mother Nature.

Use With Other Aesthetic Procedures

RSWT skin tightening therapy works great on its own—but it’s also a powerful tool to enhance the results of other aesthetic procedures. It can help reduce swelling, as well as stimulate the production of collagen to help smooth the surface of the skin after other treatments.
