Shockwave Treatment

Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to enhance and support the effects of body contouring treatments, such as cellulite and fat reduction.

Shockwave is the delivery of acoustic waves into the body, creating vibrations in the soft tissues. It is a non-invasive, fast and painless treatment that can target and rejuvenate the skin and soft tissues. Shockwave Therapy has also been proven to accelerate and enhance the results achieved when combined with other fat reduction treatments such as 360 Fat Freezing.

Shockwave Treatment For Cellulite For Cellulite & Fat Reduction

Shockwave works by stimulating the fat breakdown, collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage. Shockwave is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite – as it passes over the area, it emits Radial Waves through the skin. A course of treatment is typically 6-12 individual 15-minute sessions and results are seen as quickly as 2 weeks after starting the course. If you exercise and increase how much water you drink you may see even better results. 90% of women who took part in a clinical study would recommend this treatment.

Powerful shockwaves cause fat cells to be mobilised by the body as triglycerides are released and circulated within the body, resulting in the reshaping and reduction of fat accumulation. Shockwaves also act on microcirculation by stimulating tissue oxygenation, as the problem of cellulite stems from fluid retention and fibrosis.

In short, more oxygen in the area allows the removal of toxins and cellulite buildup. The treatment is painless and consists of weekly sessions (usually 6 – 8) that are 30-45 minutes long. There are no side effects associated with this procedure and it has been clinically proven for its effects.

Shockwave Therapy Newcastle

RT Aesthetics Shockwave Therapy is delivered by placing a probe up against the areas of cellulite, as it passes over the area it emits radial waves through the skin into the targeted area. The treated cells are then flushed away through the body’s natural removal process (lymphatic system) and this process continues for up to 3 months after treatment.

Shockwave cellulite therapy consists of high-energy acoustic waves applied to the skin in order to reduce cellulite. This treatment reduces the appearance of cellulite by stimulating cellular metabolism and the exchange of blood lipids, inducing the production of new collagen and elastin fibers and stimulating blood and lymph circulation. This results in more defined and smoother skin and a reduced appearance of cellulite.

Acoustic waves are strong, non-focused pulses of sound which generate vibrations. When acoustic waves are directed at problem areas of the skin or tissue, they produce a wide range of positive physiological responses within the body. These changes can lead to improved smoothness, texture, elasticity, and tightening of the skin.

Free fatty acids and glycerol are released from the fat cells and sit in the intercellular space. Natural metabolic systems then remove these waste products from the body. At the same time, the sound waves stimulate connective tissue, giving the skin a firmer tone and reducing dimples on the skin’s surface.

Our Care.


Prior to your Shockwave Treatment it is recommended that you begin to make changes to your lifestyle by:

  • Increasing water intake (aim for 2 – 3 litres per day)
  • Reduce the intake of toxins to the body (tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, carbohydrates and fatty foods)
  • Increase the consumption of fruit and vegetables
  • Avoid a heavy meal an hour before treatment
  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to treatment
  • Avoid having any laser hair removal or laser treatment 1 weeks before treatment (in the area you’re having treated)
  • If the skin is red, irritated or broken, we cannot carry out your treatment until the skin has completely healed
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing, no tight jeans etc
  • Avoid Aspirin and Ibuprofen during the treatment programme
After Care.

In order to achieve optimum results from your Shockwave Treatment, we strongly recommend the following:

  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water daily, keep a large bottle with you at all times and infuse with lemons and limes for flavour – this will flush out the crystallised lipids (dead fat cells) out of your body through the lymphatic system
  • Exercise minimum of 1 hour per week as this will assist in the metabolism of the dead fat cells and contribute to healthy lifestyle
  • Follow a healthy eating diet plan (we offer these on our website, head over and click ‘resources’) and reduce your intake of alcohol, carbohydrates and caffeine during the treatment program
  • Regular body brushing at home is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells – do this twice daily for 2 minutes
  • Use the RT Organics Body Sculpt Oil daily when body brushing to help assist the removal of dead fat cells and promote good blood flow
  • Take 2 scoops of RT Aesthetics 20:80 inulin powder daily, mix with any liquid or food
  • Avoid hot baths or showers, steam or heat treatments for 24 hours
  • Avoid Aspirin and Ibuprofen during the treatment programme
  • Lymphatic massage will accelerate the process of removing the fat cells
