Cellulite and Shockwave Therapy

Stubborn cellulite that you can’t seam to shift? Then todays blog is for you!

We post a lot about Shockwave therapy on our Facebook and Instagram page. Here at RT Aesthetics Newcastle we use the latest Shockwave device to help reduce cellulite and promote skin tightening. We have been doing these treatments for many years with great success.


Cellulite is not found exclusively in individuals who are overweight, as it can be caused by significant weight gain or weight loss but is also typically hereditary (in your genes). Many celebrities look for anti-cellulite treatments, even supermodels like Kate Moss, or Kim Kardashian, proving that cellulite ‘is not a fat problem’. However, anti-cellulite treatments do not need to be surgical and there are many non-surgical options that prove to be very effective in the reduction of cellulite.

Cellulite appears when fat deposits enlarge and push through the connective tissues of the skin. This gives a dimpled and lumpy appearance. This condition affects nearly 90% of women at some point during their lives, affecting all shapes and sizes. Shockwave treatments were originally pioneered in the medical industry to break down kidney stones. However studies have shown that Shockwave stimulate the metabolic process and improves connective tissue elasticity – thus reduction of cellulite!

You may be asking the question, what causes cellulite? It is the result of a build up of toxins, excess fluids and enlarged fat cells trapped between connective tissue, resulting in a reduction in the lymphatic flow. These factors create the bumpy, dimpled ‘cottage cheese’ appearance on the skin. Although cellulite is not dangerous, the appearance can be damaging to a person’s self-confidence and self-image because of its unpleasant appearance.

RT Aesthetics non-surgical anti-cellulite treatments can help reduce and rid the unwanted cellulite. Using advance technology to actively reduce and remove cellulite. Our treatments aim to increase and improve blood flow and destroy unwanted fat cells. The following treatments are designed to improve and reduce the appearance of cellulite.Shockwave for cellulite is delivered using a probe on the area being treated which emits radial waves into the skin. These waves are commonly known as, acoustic waves which generate oscillations in the tissue being treated. These waves help to break down fat, stimulate the tissue into producing new collagen and helps with lymphatic drainage, allowing the broken down fats to be flushed out of the body.
