Cost and Financing of Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy is a cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate cellulite. Cellulite is a skin condition in which the connective tissue beneath the skin hardens, causing dimpling. Acoustic Wave Therapy uses vibrations to stimulate collagen growth and soften connective tissue, reducing the appearance of cellulite.

How Cellulite Forms and How Acoustic Wave Therapy Treats It

Cellulite is a skin condition that can occur in both men and women, though it most commonly affects women. Cellulite forms when the connective tissue beneath your skin hardens; fat then accumulates in these areas, but because the connective tissue has lost its elasticity, your skin takes on a dimpled appeared.

Acoustic Wave Therapy was developed to treat joint stiffness and circulation problems. Acoustic Wave Therapy's vibrations affect the body's connective tissues, stimulating collagen growth to make them more elastic. For this reason, Acoustic Wave Therapy can be used to treat cellulite, because it softens the connective tissues beneath the skin.

Cost of Acoustic Wave Therapy for Cellulite

Acoustic Wave Therapy is an outpatient procedure that's non-invasive and requires no recovery time. A typical session lasts about half an hour. You'll need at least six sessions, spaced out at two sessions a week for three weeks. You may need maintenance treatments every three weeks.

Acoustic Wave Therapy costs between $150 and $300 per session. Costs vary according to the region where you live and the area of your body you're having treated. Full treatments can cost between $900 and $1200. Follow up maintenance treatments can add to that cost.
