Acoustic Wave Treatments

This exciting non-invasive technology opens up new applications in skin tightening and anti-cellulite treatment.

With Acoustic Wave Therapy/Extracorporeal Pulse Activation treatments in Kansas City, we can specifically tailor your procedure to meet your exact requirements, goals, and results.

What is Acoustic Wave Therapy?

Our Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) treatments in Kansas City use wave technology to cause micro-tears in the fibrous bands that cause cellulite:

While also breaking down fatty deposits, AWT/EPAT restores connective tissue, improves circulation, and tightens loose skin.

This technology can be used to treat sites other than the buttocks and thighs. Excellent results have been achieved with treatments to the abdomen and arms.

How it works

Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment sessions may vary considerably depending on the indication, severity of symptoms, and the area to be treated.

Most treatments at our Kansas City office take about 40 minutes and are conducted twice per week for a total of eight to twelve sessions. Here’s how your Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment will work:


First, your Cellulite Physicians Services Acoustic Wave Therapy expert will apply a layer of gel between the skin and the hand piece.


Next, your treatment expert will apply your therapy to your treatment area.


After your treatment you can resume your normal daily activities.


Results are often seen after the third or fourth treatment. Therapy outcomes are generally excellent and the benefits may last up to twelve months.


There is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure, and clients may resume their regular activity the same day.


For enhanced outcomes, we recommend combining treatments with Cellfina Therapy to provide results that last years.

What is Cellulite and How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) Combat It?

Cellulite occurs naturally as small dimples or lumps in the skin. The exact cause of cellulite isn’t known, but usually it occurs when the connective tissue in the dermatological layer of our skin interacts with the fat that sits below that dermatological layer. As fat cells grow, they may push against this surface layer, causing dimples to form as cellulite. In addition, fibrous connective bands attached to the undersurface of the skin contract and pull the undersurface to also form cellulite dimples.

What Causes Cellulite?

There are a few lifestyle factors that are thought to make you more susceptible to cellulite, such as:

  • Poor diet and lack of exercise: Because cellulite occurs when the fat layer pushes on the dermatological layer, poor diet and lack of exercise may lead to the creation of more fat cells.
  • Smoking: If you are a smoker, the added stress on your body combined with a sedentary lifestyle may cause cellulite over time.
  • Age: Cellulite is more prevalent in older people, but can also affect younger demographics. As we age, the connective tissue in our skin loses its strength.
  • Gender: Although the difference is subtle, men’s and women’s skin is structured differently. A man’s skin is usually thicker than a woman’s, making him less likely to get cellulite than his female counterpart. Women also tend to carry more fat on their bodies than men by biological design.
  • Hormones: Certain hormones may also play a part in cellulite development. Insulin, prolactin thyroid hormones, estrogen, and noradrenaline are all involved in its production.
  • Genetics: Your genetics may also impact your levels of cellulite. Your genetics often determine your metabolism, circulatory levels, fat levels, and ethnicity, all of which may impact the process.

Where is Cellulite Most Likely to Occur?

Cellulite is most commonly found on the thighs and around the buttocks. But it can also occur on the upper arms, around the breasts, and on the lower abdomen.

Addressing Cellulite with AWT

The majority of people have some cellulite on their bodies or will at some point in their lives. The presence of cellulite is nothing to be ashamed of, but some people don’t like the look of it on their bodies. 

There are many therapies that claim to reduce it. Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is among the best solutions for those that want to address their cellulite. Our Acoustic Wave Therapy for cellulite in Kansas City is a safe, state-of-the-art procedure.

What are the Benefits of this Procedure?

If you’re looking to try our Acoustic Wave Therapy cellulite treatment in Kansas City, you may be curious about its benefits. They include:

  • A non-invasive approach: Many people favor Acoustic Wave Therapy because it is non-invasive. Typical AWT sessions happen once or twice a week over the course of several weeks. The lengths of the sessions vary from person to person, but they are usually brief. At our clinic, the average session lasts 40 minutes.
  • A quick recovery time: Some procedures, especially surgeries, require a long recovery period. But with Acoustic Wave Therapy, the recovery period is short. Most people can resume regular activity on the same day. You may experience redness or a mild tingling sensation after treatment, but this usually subsides after a day or two.
  • Lasting results: With this type of reduction treatment, you should see a smoother skin texture and elasticity. With the right aftercare and a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain great results long after you’ve finished treatment.

How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works

Acoustic Wave Therapy introduces a series of small, pressurized waves to the affected area. It stimulates collagen growth and helps to break down fat. As the probe crosses the skin, radial waves are delivered with precision to the areas of cellulite. These waves improve blood flow to the area and activate fat cell membranes, making them more permeable.
