Cellulite Treatment Guide
Learn about Storz EPAT to reduce cellulite and get answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about cellulite treatments.
What is cellulite and how can it be treated?
Cellulite is caused by fat cells being pushed out of place from collagen that bands the skin to muscular tissue and is most commonly found on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Cellulite is prevalent, with about 90% of women having cellulite somewhere on their body. Cellulite does not discriminate and can be found on women of all shapes and sizes and even in men. Certain factors can increase propensity for cellulite, such as poor diet, being overweight or obese, smoking, hormonal changes, and family history of cellulite.
What is the Storz Device?
The Storz device is a shockwave device, also called EPAT (extracorporeal pulse activation technology) that is a non-invasive treatment used to treat cellulite, used after liposuction to enhance results, and for differing musculoskeletal conditions. This technology is used to regenerate tissue and heal the soft tissues and skin.
How do Storz Acoustic Waves work?
EPAT therapy works through sending pulsed acoustic waves to focused body tissues. These acoustic waves move through the body tissue, as the body is made primarily of water, causing a series of reactions to take place due to the forces exerted by the waves. The acoustic waves travel in pulses deep into the tissues, which leads to damage of the fat cells and connective tissues. The damage to the body tissues are then replaced by new collagen through the body’s own natural healing. The new collagen and tissues are more dense which leaves smoother, firmer skin than prior to treatment.
How does the Storz device treat cellulite?
The Storz device uses shockwave therapy to remodel the tissues to improve the appearance of cellulite, over the course of weeks with several different treatment sessions.
Who is a candidate for cellulite treatment?
Anyone who suffers from cellulite is a potential candidate for EPAT therapy, as it is a non-invasive treatment for cellulite. Even though EPAT is suitable for a large number of people, there are specific conditions or states that will prevent the use of EPAT therapy.

What should to expect at a Storz EPAT cellulite treatment consultation?
During consultation, you will meet with a medical provider to discuss your body concerns. Consultation will consist of a discussion about your desires, body goals, problem areas, previous treatments, and medical history. Your problem areas will be examined to determine if EPAT treatment is right for you, how many sessions will be necessary, and expected results.
What should I expect on the day of treatment?
On the day of your treatment session, you will be taken into a private therapy room. You will be provided with a gown to wear during treatment. The medical professional will expose the areas to be treated and cover other non essential areas of your body. A gel will be applied to the treatment area and the probe from the EPAT device will move over this area in a circular pattern. Each session lasts about 20 minutes, or longer depending on the areas that are being treated.
What is the recovery process?
As EPAT therapy is non-invasive and virtually painless, there is no recovery that is necessary after treatment, allowing you to continue with day to day activities without any down time. EPAT therapy is exquisitely safe with almost no risks or side effects. If side effects are to occur, it may include mild bruising and sensitivity to the treatment areas.
What type of results should I expect & how many sessions does it take?
Results from EPAT therapy vary from each individual based on the severity of the cellulite and areas that need treatment. Treatment does take several sessions over the span of a few weeks. Commonly, between eight and twelve treatment sessions are necessary with two treatment sessions performed each week, until desired results are achieved. The number of sessions may be discussed at consultation or may be decided after treatment sessions ensue.
Most people will experience results within 2-3 weeks of starting treatment. Even though EPAT does not provide permanent results for cellulite, it can provide long lasting results, up to several years.
