Acoustic wave treatment in aesthetic medicine and dermatology
AWT® - Acoustic Wave Therapy
Acoustic Wave Therapy (»AWT®«) uses high-energy acoustic waves that are generated by means of two combinable therapy devices – planar and radial type applicators – and introduced into the patient‘s body. Aesthetic and dermatological disorders such as cellulite, scars or oedema can be treated effectively and with long-lasting results.
Acoustic waves have been used in medicine with great success since 1980 for the disintegration of kidney stones (ESWL) and since 1992 for the treatment of orthopaedic conditions such as tendon and muscle disorders (ESWT).
Measurable dermatological success
The therapy success of the »AWT®« method is evidenced by the formation of a collagenous-elastic fibre network in the subcutaneous adipose tissue. This is clearly visible in the ultrasound image. A significant improvement in skin elasticity lasting over 6 months has been documented in clinical examinations.
