How long does treatment take?
A typical WellWave treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes. Normally, 1-2 treatments per week are performed. A total of 3-5 treatments may be necessary before lasting improvement is achieved. With acute pain, a single session is often successful.
Are there known side-effects?
No side-effects are known at the energy levels used in the WellWave device. Depending on the condition being treated, follow-up sessions may be required. Some patients report an instant improvement and others find it may take more than a few treatments over a few weeks to notice improvement.
What to expect during your treatment:
1. Your clinician will identify the treatment site or sites.
2. They will then apply a thin coat of transmission gel. This gel helps create an effective treatment surface that allows the optimum benefit to be achieved using the lowest possible setting.
3. The clinician will start the treatment at a very low setting and increase the power levels to find the best setting for your condition. The power and rate may vary from location to location based on the depth and type of tissue being treated.
4. You may feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation as the clinician determines the appropriate level for your treatment. In most cases, the sensation decreases and may feel pleasant. If this feeling becomes very uncomfortable, mention this to the clinician and they will adjust the energy level.
5. After the treatment is completed, the transmission gel will be removed and you can return to your normal activities. You may experience some minor aches or discomfort after treatment. It is not unusual for patients to notice flushed or reddened skin around the treatment site.
Is the treatment painful?
There is typically some discomfort during treatments. The intensity of the treatment varies from patient to patient and condition to condition.
