Swelling and soreness at the radio wave moving away at most patients (84,3%) passed through 3 days, recovery after a 1 session came at 65,6% of patients, after 2 sessions — at 28,2%, after 3 sessions — at 6,2%. At watching the patients of this group during one to three years their proof recovery is set. Conclusion.
