There are different ways to treat local obesity and cellulite including invasive and noninvasive methods. Due to the fact that noninvasive methods have significantly lower rates of adverse effects, they become more popular. One of these methods is acoustic wave therapy (AWT) or shock wave therapy (SWT). In addition to treating cellulite, SWT has been found useful for some other conditions. In this paper, we briefly introduce SWT and describe the protocol and results of treating cellulite and local obesity using Callactor® SC1 device (Storz Medical, Switzerland) in three females with normal body mass indices.
