In dermatology and aesthetics, numerous indications and regions of the body are now being treated non-invasively with shock waves.
In 2004, STORZ MEDICAL was the first company in the world to succeed in physically modifying shock waves so that they could be used as pulsating acoustic waves for the treatment of cellulite and in so-called »body shaping«. The mode of action of this new Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT®) has been proven by a number of scientific studies and long-term clinical observations. Today, AWT® is also used to smooth scars and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, tighten connective tissue, treat pregnancy/stretch marks, relax muscles and treat skin irregularities after liposuction. With the DUOLITH® SD1 »ultra« AWT and the D-ACTOR® »ultra« line, STORZ MEDICAL offers advanced AWT® solutions that open up a wide range of applications depending on individual requirements and impress with their high level of user-friendliness.
Another dermatological field of application for extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is wound healing. In the 2000s, doctors also observed positive effects on the healing of surrounding wounds during shock wave treatment of various medical conditions. This in turn led to targeted studies that confirmed the observed effects. The DUOLITH® SD1 T-TOP »ultra« DERMA is the ideal shock wave solution for dermatological applications. It is suitable not only for the treatment of chronic wounds, but also for accelerated healing of burns and open wounds, as well as for improving lymphoedema.
