Are you ready to look your best?

Patients, like you, who want to look and feel their best are seeking out EPAT.

This innovative procedure is a proven preventative treatment that reduces your susceptibility and/or reverses and eliminates visible signs of age-related connective tissue weakness and cosmetically unappealing dimples and bumps associated with cellulite.

CuraMedix Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), sometimes referred to as Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT),  is the most advanced non-invasive technology which uses energy based on unique sets of acoustic pressure waves.

EPAT helps to improve the regenerative potential in areas that have degenerated because of poor blood flow and weakening of the connective tissue.

In just 8-12 twenty minute EPAT treatment sessions (2 per week) with our CelluPulse device, you’ll experience measurable and visible results.

YOUR AREA OF CONCERN?

  • Upper Arms

    Description

    With age, the body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, (fibers that make up ligaments and tendons, cartilage, skin and bone tissue) which give connective tissue strength, flexibility and elasticity, decreases. This causes the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily and takes longer to heal.

    Symptoms

    Loose connective tissue can be found on the abdomen, thighs and upper arms often occurring as a result of giving birth, surgery and weight loss.

    Treatment

    Ask your doctor about Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®).
    EPAT® is a modern, highly effective treatment method characterized by the application of acoustic pressure waves to the affected body regions.  Chosen by an increasing number of women, this innovative procedure is the first effective and long lasting approach to treating connective tissue disorders and other degenerative problems.
    As an alternative to surgery, the procedure includes 8-12 in-office sessions (2 times per week) approximately 20-30 minutes each.

  • Stomach

    Description

    Marks that look like bands, stripes, or lines often appear on the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, buttocks and thighs. The formation of these irregular areas of skin are particularly common in pregnant women or during periods of rapid growth in males and females.

    Symptoms

    These marks or bands don’t all look alike and vary depending on how long a person has had them, what caused them, where they are on the body, as well as the skin type. Common variations include: indented streaks or lines in the skin, multiple pink, red or purple streaks, bright streaks that fade to a light pink, white or grayish color
    These marks may also occur as a result of abnormal collagen formation, or a result of medications or chemicals that interfere with collagen formation. They may also be associated with longtime use of cortisone creams or compounds, diabetes, Cushing disease, and post-pregnancy.

  • Buttocks

    Description

    Enlarged fat cells bulge upwards toward the skin reducing the elasticity of the surrounding connective tissue, lymphatic flow and blood circulation, which leads to the undesirable dimpling or bumpy appearance.

    Symptoms

    Loose connective tissue or dimpled bumpy skin, often described has having a cottage cheese or orange peel appearance, can be found on the abdomen, thighs and upper arms often occurring as a result of giving birth, surgery and weight loss.  Other factors that influence how much cellulite a person has and how visible it is include:  poor diet, slow metabolism, lack of physical activity, hormone changes, dehydration, total body fat, as well as the skin’s thickness and color.

Understanding EPAT®

Let’s treat the root cause of your pain

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.

Generally, acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including:

  • Foot and heel pain
  • Achilles pain
  • Tendon and/or tendon insertion pain
  • Neuromas
  • Trigger points

Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction.

Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, EPAT® pressure waves are released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular motion.

Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each EPAT® device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy.

Treatment sessions take approximately 5-10 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, at least 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.

The non-invasive EPAT® treatment has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work.

The safety and effectiveness of the EPAT® procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions. Your doctor will provide you with information about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the EPAT® procedures.

  • Malignancies
  • DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

EPAT® has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time.

  • Performed in your physician’s office/clinic
  • Does not require anesthesia
  • Requires a minimal amount of time

Patients can:

  • Bear weight (i.e. walk) immediately
  • Return to work/normal activities within 24-48 hours
  • Resume strenuous activities after 4 weeks
