Default Sonic Showers - a quick question

I was watching an episode of DS9 last night and Jadzia Dax had just taken a sonic shower. She was wearing a tower and her hair looked wet (but it might have just been shiny). I've seen other using towels in the sonic showers. I thought sonic showers were not wet and it was just the sound waves that cleaned you. Do they use water in some way? And if not, what is this obsession with towels if you don't need to dry yourself?

I knw it's a bit of a daft question but it annoyed me

Oops! Typo alert... though I don't know how. R is quite far away from L. That should be *towel*

I know, but it was just too funny to be ignored

So they don't use water.

Why would you need a towel then? They must be nuts

Because it's American TV, and they cannot show the naughty bits.

Surely you would just get dressed or wear a bath robe.
