Cellulite is a common aesthetic condition that affects almost every woman. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of acoustic wave therapy (AWT) for cellulite and body shaping. The trial involved 30 women who underwent 12 sessions of AWT on the gluteus and back of the thighs over six weeks.
The results of the study showed that the treatment reduced cellulite severity from baseline up to 12 weeks after the last treatment session. The mean Cellulite Severity Scale (CSS) score decreased from 11.1 to 9.5 (p < 0.001). The hips’ circumferences also reduced from 99.7 and 103.2 cm to 96.2 and 100.3 cm, respectively (p < 0.001). The average thickness of the subcutaneous fat tissue decreased from 28.3 ± 6.5 mm to 26.7 ± 6.1mm (p < 0.001).
The study also found that AWT improved the quality of life of the participants, with more than 90% of the subjects willing to undergo the treatment again and 89% satisfied with the results. No serious adverse events were reported, suggesting that AWT is a safe treatment to improve cellulite appearance and reduce body circumferences.
In conclusion, this study provides evidence that AWT can effectively reduce the severity of cellulite and improve body shaping without significant side effects. This treatment can be an attractive option for women seeking non-invasive solutions to address cellulite and body contouring concerns.
