The acoustic radial wave is made up of two distinct components — a positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component.
The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissues and breaks the grid structure of these molecules.
The tensile wave contributes to a collapse of these gas bubbles inside the fat structures, which re-expand following the acoustic radial wave and thus guarantee a destabilization of the fat structures.
The observed tissue reactions and metabolic effects are basically:
- Short-term increase of the blood circulation induced by massage and vasodilation
- long-term improvement of the blood circulation brought on by formation of blood vessels
- lymphatic drainage effect, dehydration and withdrawal of waste products
- mechanical and biochemical lipolysis
- softening of fibrotic structures (septum, scar tissue)
- strengthening of their connective tissues (collagen, activates neogenesis) contributes to development of this dermal elasticity and firmness
- cell rejuvenation (procedure for cell regeneration)
