Cellulite appears, for genetic reasons, only in women. The connective tissue of the female body is soft and elastic, and collagen fibres are arranged in a particular pattern in order to extend during pregnancy. Due to a disorder that causes an imbalance in the equilibrium between the production of fats and their consumption, fat cells (adipocytes) swell and press upward the connective tissue thus causing the typical depressions on the surface of the skin with that effect known as “orange peel skin”.
Throughout most of the scientific community, it is now considered a real disease that also involves many functional systems and that can not be underestimated. However, it must be approached with serial methodologies that act of several fronts, image as in 80% of cases, the typical orange peel skin develops and spread over woman’s thighs, buttocks, hips and arms. Cellulite has become a common problem in our society that often implies a diminished quality of life due to psychological problems that this disease can create.
And today it is finally possible to use acoustic energy to stimulate areas of the body affected by cellulite and firm the connective tissue without the infiltration, injections or side effects.
AWT® STORZis a modern and very effective treatment method in which the shock waves (acoustic waves) are applied directly to the area of the body to be treated. More and more women undergo this innovative treatment to counteract the predisposition to cellulite preventively or to deal with the already visible signs.
Thanks to the particular construction of the technologies and different applicators used, in the course of the treatment the waves are applied without pain directly to patient’s skin and are directed towards the area affected by cellulite, releasing and giving their energy to the fat cells.
AWT® STORZ anti-cellulite treatment addresses the root causes of the problem, such as the decrease in metabolic activity in the affected areas of the body, and the reduced elasticity of the connective tissue.
AWT increases the permeability of the cell membrane, improves microcirculation by stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation by producing localised skin hyperemia (or even angiogenesis, in the case of medical systems), while mechanical vibrations restore the elasticity of the connective tissue improving skin tone and eliminating the presence of imperfections associated with cellulite.
