Cellulite Treatment

Treatment of Cellulite with the Zimmer ZWave-Pro

Are you troubled by that annoying dimpled appearance of your buttock and thigh area? Are you looking for a way to improve the look of fat and cellulite but don’t want a painful or invasive treatment? If so, the Zimmer ZWave-Pro may be your solution. Representing the next generation of skin tightening and body contouring, the ZWave gently and gradually provides skin tightening and reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The treatments are completely non-invasive, pain-free and have no downtime. There are no lasers or microwaves and no incisions or anesthesia are needed. ZWave utilizes an entirely new technology designed exclusively for the treatment of cellulite -clinically-tested radial pulse therapy to soften fibrotic structures and strengthen connective tissue. The end result is healthier, collagen-rich tissue with improved lymphatic drainage and a renewed ability to retract around muscle and bone. – all of which translates to an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

What is the Zimmer ZWave?

The Zimmer ZWave is a new product from Zimmer Aesthetics that treats cellulite with high energy radial shockwaves. This technology is known as Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT) and it was designed for the treatment of cellulite. RPT is also used to enhance the results of CoolSculpting. The ZWave transmits the radial shockwaves directly into the tissue with high precision and essentially no discomfort.

How does the Zimmer ZWave Treat Cellulite?

The Zimmer ZWave delivers high-energy radial shockwaves which have been scientifically proven to affect the structure of collagen and the connective tissue of the skin. The ZWave stimulates collagen formation and improves both lymphatic drainage and blood circulation thus improving skin elasticity and firmness.

The ZWave produces radial waves to provide a positive pressure pulse to squeeze the surrounding tissue and molecular grid structure followed by a small tensile wave which leads to the collapse of gas bubbles and ultimately destabilization of the fat structures.

Cellulite Treatment FAQs

  • How many sessions are required to reduce the appearance of cellulite?

    Patients typically receive about 10 treatments each lasting about 30 minutes to maximize the benefits of ZWave therapy.

  • What areas can be treated with the ZWave?

    Because cellulite occurs primarily in the arms, buttocks, thighs and abdomen, the ZWave is most commonly used in these areas to treat cellulite. The ZWave is also used in combination with CoolSculpting in most areas where fat reduction is achieved through cryolipolysis.

  • When will I see results from the ZWave?

    Most patients will notice skin tightening and improvement in the appearance of cellulite after just a couple of treatments. The smoothing and tightening continue with each successive session until maximum results are achieved.
