It is estimated that about 85-90 percent of individuals have cellulite, which typically surfaces on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Cellulite develops when fat deposits move through the connective tissue under the skin and cause the skin to dimple and look lumpy. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are not enough to eliminate cellulite, and even those who are physically fit may still be troubled by dimpled skin. If you are bothered by cellulite, Z-Wave could be an ideal treatment. It is a type of Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT) that is approved by the FDA and specifically designed for reducing mild to moderate cellulite by transmitting powerful sound waves to the targeted areas under the skin.
The high-energy sound waves will effectively break down fat and gas bubbles that can accumulate between cellulite. This treatment increases blood flow, boosts collagen production, strengthens connective tissues, and rejuvenates cells for tighter and smoother skin.
While the procedure is well-tolerated, the pulses that are transmitted have enough power to break down the fat in fibrous connective tissue. The procedure can be administered on various areas of the body, and the treatment is also effective for treating stretch marks.
Who are Ideal Candidates for the Procedure?
Ideal candidates for the Z-Wave procedure will be in good health and at a stable weight. Those who want to undergo this treatment will also need to have a positive outlook when it comes to the procedure. Many individuals choose to have the treatment administered in conjunction with other therapies for optimal results.
What to Expect
During your treatment, a handheld device will be used to target problem areas. Many individuals report that the treatment feels comparable to a relaxing massage. Each treatment session is performed in the comfort of our office. Since there is no downtime with Z-Wave, you can resume your normal activities immediately following each session.
Although the results will vary, most individuals need a series of treatments to get the results they desire, and many start to see the results surface in the weeks that follow. You may need touch-up treatments administered to maintain the full results, but touch-up treatments should not take as many sessions as your original treatment. The results are long-lasting and can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle.
