Who is a candidate for Micro-needling?

The X-Wave modified acoustic wave pulses induce vibration in the targeted connective tissue, which in turn increases blood flow, stimulates lipolysis and induces collagen production. As a result, the skin firmness and elasticity improves, fat deposits are eliminated and the skin appears smoother. X-Wave is clinically modified to ensure a lower energy level is pulsed to the target area, so any tissue damage in the treatment area are avoided.

The common target areas include: thighs, buttocks, love handles, abdomen, arms. During the treatment 6000 pulses are delivered per area. The treatment is comfortable and painless and results include improvement in the skin’s texture and elasticity, as well as dermal firming and a reduction in the dimpled appearance of the skin. A course of six to eight weekly sessions is recommended.

The skin will continue to improve for up to six months after the last treatment. BTL X-Wave therapy is safe for patients of all ages who want to improve problem areas resistant to exercise and/or diet. Combining non-surgical procedures such as X-wave for skin smoothing, Exilis Elite for fat reduction and Lymphtism for lymphatic drainage, can significantly improve the overall body contouring result achieved.

After years of marginal successes from anti-cellulite treatments, we are finally able to access a truly revolutionary therapy that is scientifically proven to reduce cellulite and fatty deposits.
