VMAT BASIC is a painless non-invasive treatment used to reduce cellulite on the abdomen, arms, thighs and buttocks. The equipment designed by Termosalud uses acoustic shock waves, a highly effective method that can be used to treat all types of cellulite (grade I, II and III).
When cellulite reaches an advanced stage, it produces a high concentration of proteins, which causes fibrosis and alters the properties of the tissue.
What do acoustic shock waves do to tissues during the treatment?
- Neovascularisation: the application of this therapy creates capillary micro-ruptures in the zone, which stimulates the growth and remodelling of new arterioles. The new blood vessels improve the blood flow and oxygenation.
- Collagen stimulation: Vmat Basic manages to accelerate the synthesis of collagen, a protein that is essential for tissue repair.
- Selective increase in the permeability of the cell membrane: acoustic shock waves are applied to the tissue to stimulate the cells. This then increases the permeability of the cell membrane and releases the free fatty acids and glycerol from the cells. The acoustic shock waves improve the tissue metabolism and boost the delivery of catabolic products to the liver to be used as energy.
Various clinical observation studies have assessed the effects of acoustic waves in the field of dermatology, concluding that it is a highly effective and long-lasting method for the treatment of cellulite.
The measurements of the elasticity values of the skin confirm significant improvements during the course of acoustic wave therapy:
Los valores de elasticidad de la piel registrados al final de la terapia revelan un aumento del 74%
Transcurridos tres meses, la elasticidad de la piel mejora incluso hasta en un 105%
The elasticity values recorded at the end of the therapy show an increase of 74%
After three months, the elasticity of the skin improves by up to 105%
We must point out that using chemical products to care for the skin, like creams, lotions, etc. only manages to improve the elasticity if the skin by between 12% and 25%. On a dermatological level, an improvement in the elasticity of the skin of more than 40% can be considered an exceptional result.
