Acoustic wave treatment in aesthetic medicine and dermatology


AWT - Acoustic Wave Therapy

AWT® - Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy (»AWT®«) performed with the radial D-ACTOR® 200 applicator uses high-energy acoustic waves that are introduced into the patient‘s body in the form of high-frequency oscillations. »AWT®« is the first effective and long-lasting treatment modality for cellulite stage I to III.

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.
