Cellulite Treatments in Fort Worth, Texas
Everyone experiences cellulite. It is natural, and inevitable, but it can also be detrimental to your self-confidence.
What Causes Cellulite?
The cause of cellulite is due to the way collagen fiber bundles attach to the skin in a straight upwards manner. As you know, the appearance is like an “orange peel” and is unsightly to most women.

Acoustic wave therapy using Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) has been studied clinically and has shown statistically significant improvement in the appearance after even one treatment.
EPAT is a local therapy, non-invasive treatment applied to the skin that takes minimal office time to see quick results. EPAT treatments leads to improved circulation to the area and may improve lymphatic drainage as well with associated lengthening of the collagen fibers and relaxation of the dimpling effects.
The immediate effects include some mild discomfort and reddening of the skin which quickly resolves once the treatment is finished. It is not known how long the effects will last as it is hard to control for patient variability in maintenance of diet and exercise but studies show continued improvement 3 months after the end of treatments.
In 1 study, 68% of responders were more confident in revealing clothing and 74% were more comfortable with their body after treatment. We would be happy to consult with you to see if you are a candidate for this therapy.
