Cellulite - visible and longlasting therapy success
Skin elasticity decreases with age. The typical orange peel appearance on thighs, buttocks and upper arms affects 80% of all women. Cellulite has become a big issue in our affluent society and thus has a significant impact on the quality of life and joy of living. »Acoustic Wave Therapy« - abbreviated as »AWT®« - is a modern, highly effective treatment method characterized by the application of acoustic sound waves to the affected body regions. This innovative therapy method is chosen by an increasing number of women as a preventive treatment to reduce their susceptibility to cellulite or to reverse and eliminate visible signs of cellulite. In many cases, the therapy success can be clearly seen, measured and felt after as little as 4 to 6 sessions, that is after 2 to 4 weeks. Today, »Acoustic Wave Therapy« is the anti-cellulite success formula used in over 500 therapy centres worldwide.
Cellulite - the fight for smooth skin
Cellulite only affects women owing to their genetic pre-disposition to the disorder. It typically appears on the thighs, buttocks and upper arms. The connective tissue is soft and elastic and exhibits a wide-meshed network of collagen fibres to enable stretching during pregnancy. An imbalance between fat production (lipogenesis) and fat breakdown (lipolysis) within the cells leads to the formation of large fat cells that are typical of cellulite. Owing to the widemeshed, soft structure of the connective tissue, these fat cells bulge upwards towards the surface of the skin, giving the skin the typical dimpled orange peel appearance.
Successful cellulite therapy with »AWT«
What is »AWT« and why is it effective in cellulite treatment? »Acoustic Wave Therapy« uses acoustic sound waves which are generated in an application handpiece and gently introduced into the affected body regions. Acoustic waves have been used in medicine with great success since 1980 for the disintegration of kidney stones and since 1990 for the treatment of tendon and muscle disorders. Modern cellulite therapy applies acoustic sound waves to cellulite regions. Upon introduction into the body, the acoustic sound waves propagate over a large area and exert their stimulating and curative action in the skin layers. The results are:
- skin smoothing and rejuvenation
- breakdown of fat deposits
- connective tissue tightening and improved retention of fat cells in the subcutis
- reduced circumference of affected body regions
Measurable and visible results
A study conducted in Switzerland has shown a 110% improvement in skin elasticity in the female patients treated. All patients participating in the study were highly satisfied with the »Acoustic Wave Therapy«. Therapy procedure The scope of treatment and therapy procedure are discussed with the patient. Contact gel is applied to the therapy region to ensure that the acoustic sound waves are introduced into the body without energy loss. Treatment is completely painless. Therapy duration and frequency On average, each cellulite therapy session takes about 30 minutes. Depending on the degree of cellulite, 6 to 10 sessions at 3 to 4 days intervals may be necessary. Recommended accompanying measures »Acoustic Wave Therapy« should be accompanied by 30 minutes physical exercise per day, a low-fat diet and 2 to 3 litres of liquid per day to ensure rapid elimination of waste products.
Which body regions can be treated?
»Acoustic Wave Therapy« can be performed on patients of any age. It helps the skin regain its natural elasticity and firmness, improves the figure and reduces the circumference of the treated body regions.
