AWT

AWT (Acoustic Wave Therapy)

The world of aesthetics and beauty continues to evolve with new technologies. One of these developments is Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), an innovative method used for skin renewal and body sculpting.

What is AWT?

Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is a procedure in which intense acoustic waves are applied to the skin through a specialized device. These waves create micro-vibrations in the underlying tissues of the skin. Acoustic waves have been used in medicine since 1968 for breaking kidney stones and since 1990 for treating tendon and muscle disorders. The application of acoustic sound waves provides tissue activation therapy that regulates the skin, subcutaneous fat tissue, connective tissue, circulatory system, muscles, and metabolic system. These micro-vibrations help increase collagen production and support tissue regeneration. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and more youthful. The safety and effectiveness of this procedure have been indicated by clinical tests.

How is it Applied?

During AWT treatment, intense acoustic sound waves are applied to the skin surface through a specialized applicator in nanoseconds. These waves penetrate the underlying tissues of the skin and have an effect at the cellular level. The sensation during treatment is generally akin to a relaxing massage. The micro-circulation of blood in the skin increases, collagen production is stimulated, and skin rejuvenation is supported. AWT’s effect is based on the shock impact of sound waves, creating vibrational pulses. AWT can deliver consecutive shots without causing cell damage and can reach deep tissue layers. AWT releases the skin, especially on connective tissue and protrusions created by fat, resulting in a smoother skin appearance. Furthermore, the stimulation of the network of collagen and elastin fibers leads to significant tightening after the application.

Due to AWT’s regulation and enhancement of tissue blood circulation and nutrition, a younger and more active connective tissue is obtained. Additionally, the acoustic wave shocks stimulate the smooth muscles of the lymphatic vessels, increasing lymphatic drainage. Thus, free fat droplets and edema are removed from the tissue.

The shockwaves generated by the AWT device create a passive exercise-like effect on muscles, helping both with burning energy and achieving muscle conditioning.

It has been proven that shockwaves stimulate energy points in the body and the sympathetic system with high-frequency acoustic energy, maximizing the overall metabolic rate. This helps eliminate the problem of slowed metabolism leading to slowed weight loss.

When is AWT Used?

AWT can be used for skin rejuvenation, tightening, and body-shaping purposes. It can be effective in reducing sagging, cellulite, and the appearance of stretch marks in various areas of the body. It is highly effective in correcting irregularities and indentations that can occur in areas where liposuction has been performed. It also addresses issues such as turkey neck or sagging arms, contributing to body firming.

Specific Target Areas:

  • AWT can be applied for localized fat reduction using areas like the waist, abdomen, back, arms, buttocks, hips, and legs.
  • It is particularly effective for addressing fat accumulation and sagging in the neck area. It reduces fat in this region while significantly tightening the skin.
  • It can be applied to areas where cellulite is most commonly observed, such as the buttocks, legs, arms, and any region where cellulite formation occurs.

Primary Effects:

AWT is a preferred choice for those aiming to achieve body-shaping goals.

AWT is commonly used on areas like the buttocks, legs, abdomen, back, arms, and neck. Its primary application areas include the following:

  • Cellulite reduction
  • Slimming
  • Tightening
  • Firming

Number of Sessions:

The number and duration of sessions vary according to individual needs. Typically, 8-12 sessions are carried out over a period of 4-6 weeks, with 2 sessions per week. Each session lasts between 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the treated areas.

Is the Procedure Painful?

AWT is a rapid and painless procedure. Only a mild pressure and vibration are felt. It is a relaxing application similar to massage and helps regulate body posture. The duration of treatment varies according to the treated area and individual needs. There is generally no need for a significant recovery period or any serious side effects after the procedure. Individuals can return to their daily activities quickly. Results usually become visible within a few weeks and become more pronounced with continued AWT sessions.

AWT is an effective and comfortable option for those aiming to achieve skin renewal and body shaping goals. However, as with any aesthetic procedure, it’s important to consult with an expert before using this method. If you would like to learn more about AWT or schedule an appointment, our clinic would be happy to assist you.

Tips for Enhancing the Effects of AWT After Treatment:

During AWT treatment, it is recommended to:

  • Consume 2-3 liters of water per day.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption.
  • Engage in 1 hour of daily walking.
  • Maintain regular sleep patterns.
  • Follow a diet rich in protein and low in carbohydrates.

Are There Any Side Effects of AWT?

There is no known significant side effect of the procedure. Occasionally, a short-lived redness or mild swelling may occur after treatment.

When is AWT Not Recommended?

AWT is not recommended for individuals with the following conditions:

  • Liver and kidney insufficiency.
  • Advanced diabetes.
  • Cardiovascular diseases.
  • Phlebitis and deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
  • Pregnancy or lactation.
  • Infection in the treated area.
  • Surgical history for varicose vein issues in the legs.
  • Bleeding disorders or use of blood thinning medication.
  • Presence of prosthetics, pacemakers, or similar devices in the body.
