AWT, in particular when used with radial waves, is an effective and very interesting treatment method for cellulite which did not produce any side effects among this particular group of patients.  The pressure wave unit (D-ACTOR 200), which uses only radial waves, was developed by Storz Medical AG especially for the application of AWT in cases of cellulite.  

The method has a great potential.  Other concepts for different treatment parameters are currently being tested in view of long-term results.
