The cellulite is a topographic skin change that occurs predominantly in female skin structure. The modification of skin topography is evident by skin dimpling and appears mainly on the pelvic region and lower limbs. The female skin is thinner, the orientation of collagen fibers is different to the male one and hormonal changes play an important role.
The prescribed protocols were carried out by means of the X-Wave using the compact technology for targeted and localized introduction of therapeutically effective energy into the body. The novel non-invasive technique is designed to avoid the damage to the patient’s body surface. The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator. The treatment session lasted on average fifteen minutes and consisted of two parts: Active and Support Phase. The number of pulses per patient and treated zone (approximate size of 400 cm²) reached 6,000 pulses. All treatments were performed with the BTL focused massage transmitter on the regions of buttocks.
The preset parameters had started at the settings of 3.5. Due to the very positive patients´ feedback the average settings increased to 3.7. The value of patient tolerance varied according to the area of application. The application on the certain body zones such as head, myocardium, spinal cord, gonads, kidney, liver and above air-filled tissue (lungs), close to large nerve bundles or blood vessels was strictly forbidden.
