The Zwave is an anti-cellulite treatment that uses acoustic wave therapy to drive sound waves into skin that has been affected by dimpling and cellulite (such as the abdomen, upper arms, hips, buttocks and thighs) leaving your skin tighter, smoother and healthier-looking. It can be used after CoolSculpting treatments to enhance fat removal results and for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite.
Is a ZWave treatment painful?
ZWave treatments are essentially painless and result in no significant side effects or downtime, making it a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical body contouring and skin-tightening methods.
When will I start seeing results?
Most patients need 10-14 treatments to see the best results for cellulite and skin-tightening. The treatments are performed twice per week. Some patients are satisfied after fewer treatments while some patients need more to improve body contours and skin-smoothing results.
What areas can be treated?
Almost any body area with cellulite or sagging skin can be treated with the ZWave. An “area” is about the size of your hand stretched out. We can treat multiple cellulite-affected areas at a time. The treatments are quick – requiring about 10 minutes or so per area.
What about maintenance treatments?
Some patients will see very long lasting results and not require any maintenance treatment. All patients are unique, some may wish to do occasional maintenance treatments to preserve their rejuvenated and refreshed skin tone.
Are there any things I can do to increase the effectiveness of cellulite smoothing treatments?
As always, good dietary habits, sufficient intake of water, and light physical activity are beneficial and may optimize results and prevent weight gain.
