What is Z-Wave?
The Z-Wave treatment uses ultrasound waves to treat cellulite and excess fat. This painless treatment transmits powerful sound waves that penetrate the fat beneath the skin, loosening fibrous connective tissue that surrounds fat. It is completely non-invasive, resulting in little to no downtime.
This treatment can address areas of cellulite and pockets of fat on the abdomen, upper arms, hips, buttocks, and thighs.
How Are Z-Wave Treatments Done?
Because Z-Wave treatments are pain-free, no anesthetic is required. During a treatment session, high-energy radial shockwaves will be applied to the skin. These waves stimulate blood circulation and the drainage of waste through the lymphatic system. This results in collagen-rich, healthy tissue for smoother, tighter skin.
The number of treatment sessions needed will depend on the amount of cellulite or fat present. Patients normally receive 10 treatments lasting 20-30 minutes each to see optimal results. Overall, a consultation can help to best determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
There is little to no downtime associated with Z-Wave treatments, meaning patients can return to work directly after. While some patients require no maintenance treatments, other may require occasional touch-ups to maintain results.
At our practice, we offer Z-Wave treatments after both CoolSculpting® and Vanquish body-contouring treatments to increase fat reduction in treatment areas. Patients who receive Z-Wave treatments after body-contouring procedures often see faster results.
