What is Acoustic Wave Therapy:

This treatment is relatively new to the market of aesthetic and beauty and is mostly used for the successful treatment of cellulite, skin tightening, fat reduction and stretch marks.

Acoustic Wave Therapy is a great treatment on its own, but can also be combined with other treatments to increase its effectiveness such as Ultrasound Cavitation for fat reduction.

Note: There is talk in the industry of introducing a mandatory training level for acoustic wave therapy to level 4.
