How does it work?

Acoustic waves are generated by a pellet being launched at speed to the end of the handpiece at a preset interval. The soundwaves then travel from the tip of the handpiece, through a gel and into and through the tissues, where they release energy and have several effects:


  • Release substance P, a pain mediator and growth factor. This has both a pain-relieving effect, and dilutes the blood vessels, to stimulate circulation and contributes to the formation of new bone tissue.

  • Inhibits the cox II enzyme, which reduces inflammation.

  • Hyperstimulates nerve fibres, blocking an increase in pain stimuli, and intensifies the pain-relieving effect through gate control. A bit like how we rub our skin when we get a knock.
