Cellulite Treatment with Stem Cells and Shockwaves

June 20, 2019  |  By Elise Hamann

In a recent article, Dr. Karsten Knobloch (FACS, president of German Shockwave Society DIGEST) describes the positive effects of ESWT in the treatment of cellulite.

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) uses acoustic waves to elicit a biological cellular response. For example, some studies show that ESWT leads to stem cell activation. In addition, several other biological responses have been described that can be relevant for cellulite, such as:

  • the improvement of microcirculation
  • the stimulation of lymphatic vascular endothelial growth factor
  • an antifibrotic effect on the subcutaneous fibrous septa in depressed skin areas
