SLIMWAVE is the Biomechanical Wave System: these are particular acoustic high energy waves, with the primary goal of transferring energy to body tissues to stimulate regenerative processes. When waves cross a fluid, pressurizing oscillations give rise to the formation of many gas bubbles and a kind of ‘hyper-cavitation’, hardly obtainable with the most common ultrasonic cavitation systems. A subsequent wave that strikes the bubbles thus formed will result in a violent implosion affecting the treatment tissue (eg thigh, hip or abdomen), reducing and compacting the volume. The stimulation of cellular metabolism then translates into a more smooth and graceful appearance of the skin. The best treatment results with biomechanical waves are obtained with fibrous cellulite, which forms anesthetic “orange peel skin”. Acting only on localized fat, waves are not indicated for the treatment of edema cellulite, characterized by water retention.
