Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT)

The use of acoustic waves in medical treatment is not a recent development; the treatment technique has been in vogue since 1980. However, the many applications and the effectiveness of acoustic wave therapy are coming to fore more clearly in recent times, hence causing a resurgence of interest in these treatment methods. Acoustic wave therapy, or AWT as it is commonly known, is an effective treatment method for a host of conditions, and studies have proven its efficacy in several cases as well.

What is Acoustic Wave Therapy?

Acoustic waves have been in use for pain management for quite some time now, but the use of the same for aesthetic treatments or issues like erectile dysfunction is slowly becoming more mainstream now. In this treatment method, acoustic waves or low-intensity sound waves are used to produce different effects.

In aesthetic medicine, the ability of acoustic waves to prompt biological responses, thus stimulating connective tissue elasticity, is what becomes significant. Using these sound waves in this manner, it is possible to correct the cosmetic appearance of skin that is marred by striae or wrinkles or stretch marks or other similar conditions arising from cellulite formation. When sound waves are introduced onto the skin surface, they penetrate within and stimulate the fibroblasts underneath. The newly stimulated fibroblasts are prompted to escalate collagen and elastin production. This, in turn, helps the skin look firmer and younger.

The tendency of the sound waves to clear plaque from blood vessels and give impetus to the growth of new blood vessels is what helps in making it an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. When the low-intensity sound waves are passed through erectile tissue, blood circulation to these parts is improved, and thus, the condition is addressed. The application of sound waves to the region causes neovascularization, which ultimately translates into a better ability to maintain an erection.

The advantages of AWT

There are quite a few advantages that AWT offers, especially since it has been seen to have some very visible beneficial effects. For starters, it is a non-invasive procedure that takes maybe just a short session each time for the individual undergoing the treatment to enjoy several months of benefits. In this way, it seems to offer a good solution for those who wish to avoid regular injections or medications on a daily basis.

The short treatment duration is a benefit in another way as well because it makes it easy for anyone, no matter how hectic the lifestyle, to schedule the procedure and complete it successfully. It has been seen that even a single session of AWT may result in visible effects.

In general, many cosmetic treatments may offer varying degrees of success depending on the skin type of the recipient, but this limitation does not apply to AWT. Another huge advantage is that this treatment requires no recovery or rest period that could disrupt the individual’s lifestyle or require taking a leave of absence from work. That makes it a convenient solution to opt for.

Cellulite Treatment

Acoustic wave therapy or AWT can help you reduce cellulite in your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs significantly. Cellulite formation is very common among women. You cannot get rid of it permanently. However, it is possible to reduce it, and our treatment can do exactly that. Using high-energy acoustic waves that oscillate at high frequencies, the natural metabolic process of your body is empowered, and the perfusion is increased. This not only reduces your cellulite, but it also improves skin elasticity and revitalizes dermis in cellulite.

Diabetic Foot Circulation Recovery

Complications and discomfort in legs and feet are very common among diabetic patients. This is caused as a result of either poor blood circulation, nerve damage, or both. Your blood vessels in your feet may harden, and this can make it more difficult for you to fight infection and heal in that area of your body. Our acoustic wave therapy can help in the healing of various diabetic foot complications such as foot ulcers and other infections.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that many men struggle with, but with our Acoustic Wave Therapy, you can be confident that you are receiving the right treatment. Using low-frequency sound waves, the procedure can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels while also opening up existing blood vessels. This results in improved blood circulation in the penis and the surrounding area, thus making it easier for those with erectile dysfunction to achieve an erection.

Fasciitis Treatment

Fasciitis can cause painful symptoms such as sharp pain in the affected area, swelling and tenderness, pain after prolonged resting and activity, tingling or burning sensation, arthritis, severe muscle pain, and so on. It’s not difficult to see how debilitating these can be for the patient. To help treat your condition and relieve you of your pain, we use acoustic wave therapy, a non-invasive treatment method that requires no downtime. This in-office procedure is quick yet effective.

Lymph Drainage

To boost the performance of your lymphatic system and speed up the process of waste and toxin removal from your body, lymph drainage performed by a trained professional is what you need, and that is exactly what we offer. We use low-frequency sound waves in our acoustic wave therapy for lymph drainage for those who may be suffering from lymphedema, arthritis, fibromyalgia, skin disorders, fatigue, digestive problems, insomnia swelling or edema, and so on.

Pain Management 

Body pain can be caused by several reasons, including illnesses such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and so on. In some cases, body pain can even be a result of your medications and treatments that you are receiving for certain conditions. Whether you have mild or severe pain, it is important to manage these pains as effectively as possible so that they don’t lead to further health complications. Our pain management treatment option using acoustic wave therapy may be exactly what you need.

Post-Burn Scar Relaxation

Post-burn scars can take a long time to go away, especially for second-degree and third-degree burns. Third-degree burn scars can even take years to disappear and for new skin to form. These scars, depending on the size and area in your body they are located in, can have drastic effects on your appearance as well. To make your post-burn scars fade and become less visible, we can offer acoustic wave therapy – a non-invasive treatment method that can help relax burn scars in various parts of your body.

Skin Rejuvenation

If you are looking for a way to achieve bright, glowing, firm, and smooth skin that makes you look years younger, you may want to consider acoustic wave therapy for skin rejuvenation. This simple, non-invasive procedure can be completed in a quick time, making it the perfect treatment even for those who are busy. During the procedure, acoustic waves are introduced gently to the surface of the skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. The result is a more youthful skin that is not only brighter, but firmer and smoother.

Striae, Stretch Marks Removal

All of us have stretch marks on our bodies. While some are hardly noticeable, some are very prominent, and they are easily visible. The stretch marks on the thighs and buttocks especially tend to be more prominent. They are a result of the changes and growth that your body undergoes. Even though these are not harmful, they can be aesthetically unappealing, which is why many people prefer to have them removed. Our acoustic wave therapy can help remove your unwanted stretch marks in just a few weeks.

Wrinkle Removal

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity, resulting in the development of wrinkles and creases on your skin. This is one of the first signs of aging and can add years to your look. The good news is that you can have these wrinkles removed using our acoustic wave therapy. The acoustic waves that are introduced to your body through the skin can stimulate collagen and elastin production; two key proteins in keeping your skin looking smooth and firm.
