Correct and Reverse Mild to Moderate Dimpling

Do you work out and eat right but still have stubborn cellulite? Get ready to show off smooth skin with no lumps and bumps!

Roughly 80%-90% of the female population has visible cellulite. As we age, our bodies lose collagen and elasticity which can result in obvious textural changes. The body can form lumps and bumps and regardless of diet and exercise, some of these changes cannot be fixed without body contouring assistance. You can finally kiss dimpled, orange-peel skin that comes with cellulite goodbye!

Franklin Skin and Laser offers a non-invasive, no downtime body contouring treatment that transmits powerful sound waves into the tissue to smooth out your skin by decreasing cellulite and increasing elasticity so you can show off your best assets once again. Cellulite is said to be a result of thinning skin, fat cells expanding and pushing against the skin, and the fibrous bands under the skin thickening and causing tension. You see commercials, scroll through social media ads and hear about topical creams that claim to fix or improve cellulite, but the results are less than impressive, do not last or don’t work at all. Losing weight also doesn’t change cellulite because it is an issue of anatomy and a deeper tissue structure made of connective vertical bands. At the spots of the connective bands, the skin is pulled down while fat pushes up around it.

This is what creates the dimpling commonly associated with cellulite for about 9/10 women. Our Z-Wave cellulite body sculpting treatment helps to correct and reverse mild to moderate dimpling on multiple areas. The high-energy sound waves break up fat and gas bubbles found in the area with cellulite. This bumps blood flow, metabolism, cell rejuvenation, and collagen production. All of this works together to lessen the appearance of the cellulite dimples. In addition to improving the lumps and bumps, this treatment offers lymphatic drainage and microcirculation. If you have struggled to cover up your cellulite for years, you now have a safe and effective non-invasive option that is FDA cleared for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite.

Circulation and the Production Of New Collagen


The Z Wave is non-invasive device that uses a handpiece to remodel the dermis. This handpiece emits shockwaves that penetrate the sub-dermal layers of the skin to break down fibrous bands that cause cellulite. From the shockwaves in this cellulite treatment Franklin patients will also increase blood circulation and the production of new collagen cells beneath the skin to further support the structure and appearance of the skin. When the cellulite is broken down, the body will naturally flush these cells out.

Cellulite Treatment Franklin, TN

reduce Unwanted Fat


This treatment can be used on most areas of the body where cellulite is known to develop. Common treatable areas are the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, banana roll and the upper arms. While this Franklin cellulite treatment will not significantly smooth out dimpling and rippling, it will smooth the shape of the body and slim down some of the areas.

comfortable non-invasive Treatment


Z Wave is a very comfortable non-invasive treatment. Most patients compare the feeling of this treatment to deep tissue massage or a handheld percussion massager, like a massage gun.

When the shockwave device is on, patients will feel a massaging sensation in the area being treated. It does not require any anesthesia or topical numbing. There is some noise associated with it, so don’t be alarmed! Patients are given ear protection and often compare what can be heard to a loud, fast repetitive clicking. This sound is what is driven into the tissue to create heat for collagen remodeling.

Cellulite Reduction Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does the Cellulite Treatment Take?

Cellulite treatments can range from 40 to 90 minutes depending on what areas are being treated.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime associated with this treatment. After your treatment, you can return to your normal daily activities, including exercise. Because of the shockwaves emitted by this treatment, you may notice the treatment area may feel relaxed afterwards.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Like other body contouring and tightening treatments, the Z Wave offers the best results when it is performed in a series of appointments. We recommend a series with a minimum of 10 treatments. These 10 treatments can be performed about 2-3 days apart for 5 weeks to achieve the desired results depending on the severity of the cellulite. We do find that results last longer with maintenance treatments after the initial series, as results are semi-permanent.

When Will I See Results?

Because this treatment breaks down unwanted cellulite and stimulates the production of natural collagen, it’s important to be patient and understand that the body needs to remodel its physical state which takes time. Although your results will be gradual, you should expect your results to last up to 2 years as long you maintain your physical state and continue living a healthy lifestyle. Patients should not expect to see any visible results until after the 3rd or 4th treatment. It may take up to 12 weeks to see full results. The collagen maturation process can take up to four weeks or longer based on your age. With patience and a treatment schedule, you can rejuvenate the appearance of your body.

How Long Will Results Last?

Your results will last for several months at a time. The longevity of the results for this treatment varies from patient to patient based on how well each patient can maintain high collagen production. New collagen will only last for a few months before it begins to break down. Although this treatment will smooth the appearance of collagen and tighten your skin, it will not halt the natural aging process. As time moves forward, the aging process will eventually catch up. The results of this treatment are not permanent.

Can You Use The Z Wave With Other Treatments?

This shockwave treatment is approved as a stand-alone cosmetic intervention and as a complementary therapy to other aesthetic treatments. By itself, this treatment can smooth the appearance of collagen and improve the overall appearance of your skin. As a follow-up treatment to other body contouring treatments, including cryolipolysis, the results of your body treatments can be enhanced with this shockwave therapy.
