Shockwave Therapy for Cellulite in Los Angeles & Orange County

Cellulite Treatment in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, CA

Cellulite is a common condition that occurs when fat cells begin to press up against the skin and its connective cords, pulling the skin down and creating the appearance of dimples and uneven surfaces. Although cellulite occurs in many people, it can be a frustrating condition that affects your overall appearance.

LaSara Medical Group is proud to offer focused shockwave therapy treatments to individuals looking to safely and effectively diminish the appearance of cellulite.

What is Cellulite Treatment?

Cellulite can be caused by genetic factors, body weight, age, hormonal changes, lack of physical activity, and smoking. No matter the cause, cellulite can be persistent and hard to eliminate. At LaSara Medical Group, we use extracorporeal focused shockwave therapy (ESWT) to treat cellulite, improve skin elasticity, and promote collagen production.

Focused shockwave therapy delivers single energy pulses to the lower layers of tissues to stimulate fat breakdown, collagen production, and lymphatic drainage. During your appointment, a skilled LaSara Medical Group provider will apply a sonic gel to the treated area to help seamlessly transmit shockwave energy. They will then use a handheld device to deliver ESWT (single energy pulses) to the treatment area.

The ESWT creates micro-tears in connective tissue and breaks down fatty deposits. The treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging collagen production and creating firmer, more lifted, and smoother skin.

FAQs About Cellulite Treatment

LaSara Medical’s experienced staff will be expertly monitoring and redirecting the pressure pulses, ensuring your maximum comfort. As a result, you can expect minimum discomfort in body areas like the buttocks and thighs. You may feel intense pressure, but the treatment should be free of pain and does not require anesthetics or pain medications.

The exact length of your treatment session will depend on the depth of your cellulite dimples, your therapy tolerance, and the area being treated. However, most sessions last between 15 - 20 minutes.

There are no significant risks associated with focused shockwave therapy. You may experience bruising, pinpoint bleeding, or superficial spider veins in the treated area. However, these marks are temporary and should go away on their own.
