Shockwave RF Therapy Singapore

For years, shockwave therapy has been used in sports medicine for its fantastic healing properties. Now, imagine if its effects are used in aesthetic medicine in combination with radiofrequency (RF), a treatment method long prized for treating skin laxity and troubled skin.

At Ozhean Zoey Aesthetics, we are proud to be home to a wide range of equipment and proprietary treatment protocols. Some of these include Quadralase for pigmentation, OZ HairFULL for luscious locks and FreezeMax for fat removal.

Next to join this list is Shockwave RF Therapy.

WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE RF THERAPY?

Shockwave therapy uses acoustic waves to promote regeneration and reparative processes of tissues, enabling accelerated tissue repair and cell growth. When used on saggy skin and cellulite, shockwave therapy realigns the newly created collagen fibers to be a lot firmer, improving skin texture and density.

Meanwhile, monopolar, bipolar or unipolar radiofrequency (RF) generates heat when it comes into contact with the skin. This induces contraction and remodelling of collagen fibres in the skin, stimulating collagen production.

Together, Shockwave RF can help to tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite and help in overall fat loss.

GRADES OF CELLULITE

Grade 1

Slight sagging with an orange peel-like appearance. Dimpling is visible only when pressure is applied.

Grade 2

Moderate sagging with a cottage cheese-like appearance. Dimpling is visible when standing but not lying down.

Grade 3

Severe sagging with a mattress-like appearance. Dimpling is visible when standing and lying down.

3 MODES OF SHOCKWAVE RF THERAPY

I
Vacuum suction

Vacuum suction treatments, such as endermologie or other devices, are typically manual treatment that is very dependent on the skills of the doctor. It works by physically and mechanically stretching the fibrous bands around the fat compartments (that caused the appearance of cellulite), and as a result, the treated part appears smoother.

This cellulite removal treatment also:

  • Improves the lymphatic drainage and venous circulation (blood flow)
  • Decreases the water content of the fat compartment resulting in an immediate improvement of cellulite

What you get is an immediate reduction of the fat bulges and noticeable contouring and shaping on the areas treated.

II
RF mode

Radiofrequency (RF) technology helps to deliver bulk heat to the skin tissues. This: 

  • Activates heat shock proteins which in turn stimulates collagen formation, resulting in skin tightening and contraction

This treatment option is excellent in tightening the skin around cellulite, which will most certainly lead to an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

III
Shockwave mode

This mode sends physical vibrational waves into the skin and fat in the areas treated and helps to: 

  • Break down stubborn fibrous tissue in “hard” or “stubborn” fat (which is common in athletic males or females)
  • Enhance body contouring results in treated area 
  • Enhance results of fat freeze treatments, like our Cristal Pro

FAQS

Shockwave RF therapy is a non-invasive procedure that does not require painkillers. There may be slight sensation during the procedure depending on your level of pain but it is mostly tolerable and there is no damage to the skin. If necessary, you may request for local anesthesia prior to the procedure. The intensity of the treatment can also be adjusted throughout the procedure.
The treatment lasts only about 15 minutes.
As collagen remodelling is a cumulative effect, most people would require 3-5 sessions for more distinct results, done 3-10 days apart depending on your pain tolerance and tissue response.
There is little to no downtime for Shockwave RF therapy and you may resume your regular activities after. However, you are recommended to refrain from strenuous activity about 48 hours after each treatment session.
Radiofrequency and vacuum suction treatments typically offer an immediate treatment result but will require several cellulite treatment sessions to create a long term improvement. Sculptra treatments offer an immediate result that improves per treatment session. Subcision typically will have bruising and swelling after the cellulite treatment, but the results are distinct after a month and permanent.
The cost will depend on your condition and treatment goals. Please speak with our doctors for a customised treatment plan.
