Acoustic Wave Therapy

Effectively remove cellulite

What is it?

Acoustic waves gain more and more in significance in aesthetic medicine. Prime indication for applying Acoustic Wave Therapy AWT is cellulite. The extracorporeal shock waves (ESWT) common in lithotripsy and pain treatment were specifically modified to so-called acoustic waves for dermatological-cosmetic applications. AWT has various effects on the individual types of cells and tissue. The improvement of metabolic processes and blood flow and e.g. the new formation of blood vessels or increased cell proliferation result from these shock andacoustic waves. In the course of Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), two different kinds of high-energy acoustic waves, oscillating at high frequencies, are introduced into the body.

How does it work?

Acoustic Wave Therapy is applied while you are lying. The respective hand piece will be applied to the area to be treated, whereas special oil ensures the best possible energy transmission. First, so-called planar waves increase the fat cell membranes’ permeability (C-actor). Then, so-called radial waves (D-actor) serve to press the fat out of the cells and to intensely stimulate the circulation of lymph and blood. This activates the tissue’s metabolism. As a result, the skin regains its tightness and bumps are reduced.

Treating 2 different areas (e.g. front side of both thighs) requires 20-30 minutes. Treating 4 different areas (e.g. back side of thighs and bottom or thighs on the front and back side) will take 50 to 60 minutes. AWT is pain-free. However, if very slim patients are treated on spots right above bones, they might feel a slightly unpleasant sensation. In such cases, the dose or intensity is to be reduced accordingly.

Frequently asked questions

1. Who can make use of Acoustic Wave Therapy?

AWT is intended for all women who suffer from type 1-3 cellulite – irrespective if their thighs, bottom, hips and/or belly are affected.

2. What does AWT do to my body?

Acoustic Wave Therapy, shock waves encourage the formation of new connective tissue. The radial waves serve to press the fat out of the cells and to intensely stimulate the circulation of lymph and blood.

3. Will my cellulite fade completely?

With rather young patients who suffer from light cellulite (type 1), the cellulite might disappear nearly completely. If the degree is a rather severe one (type 3), at least the bumps will be reduced and the skin will be tightened to achieve a smoother complexion.
