Acoustic Wave Therapy
Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is the latest, effective, non-invasive cellulite reduction treatment now offered at Allure Medical. After being used to treat kidney stones, it was discovered that AWT could also deliver excellent, long-term results in reduction of cellulite. AWT does not require any incisions, recovery time, and with repeat sessions, produces excellent outcomes for patients for the reduction of cellulite.
How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Work?
Acoustic Wave Therapy utilizes pressure waves to target fibrous bands of connective tissue responsible for the unsightly dimpling below the skin called cellulite. With age, the connective tissue stiffens and contracts, pulling down on the skin, thereby creating cellulite. By applying pressure waves to the connective tissue, the doctors at Allure Medical are able to increase circulation, collagen production and tissue elasticity, all of which contributes to reduction of cellulite. AWT strengthens both the dermis and epidermis for a healthy, smooth look.
Acoustic Wave Therapy Treatment
Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment is comfortable and very simple. The pressure waves are applied to the surface of the skin to break up the fibrous septae, the main component of cellulite. AWT does not call for anesthesia and Acoustic Wave Therapy patients are able to return to work and other daily activities immediately after the procedure.
For best results, AWT is administered once or twice per week for six to eight weeks, depending on the amount and density of the cellulite. Our Allure Medical doctors will develop a customized cellulite reduction treatment plan for each patient based on their aesthetic goals.
What’s the Recovery Like?
Acoustic Wave Therapy does not require any downtime. Cellulite reduction treatment patients may experience mild redness and a burning sensation at the treatment site, which subsides within one to two days.
Acoustic Wave Therapy offers cellulite reduction treatment patients improved skin texture, skin elasticity and dermal firming. Excellent results can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle and diet recommendations provided by our Michigan cosmetic surgeons at Allure Medical.
