ZWave Pro is an advanced non-surgical, non-invasive procedure used to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the body.
Zwave Pro uses radial pulse technology (RPT) to deliver high-energy sound waves directly onto the affected area, causing collagen fibers in the skin to break down and be replaced with new, stronger fibers. The regenerating process helps smooth out the dimpled appearance of cellulite and improves the overall tone and texture of the skin.
Listed by the TGA as an approved procedure, Zwave Pro is a sensible alternative for those looking for effective cellulite treatments that can create firmer, smoother skin without invasive surgery and the heavy price tag.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a common condition that causes areas of the skin to appear dimpled and lumpy due to fat deposits pushing against the skin. It is caused by the actual structure of the underlying fat, not just the build-up of fat. When the fibrous connective tissue that threads through the fat sections pulls against the fascia just below your skin, fat cells begin to bulge out, resulting in the characteristic dimpling appearance.
Although it can be frustrating for some, it is also very common in both women and men. Women tend to get more cellulite as fat goes through their fibrous tissue easier than it does in men. Your genetics can also play a part in whether you get cellulite or not, which is why some members of families have it in similar locations on their bodies.
How To Remove Cellulite
Cellulite is notoriously difficult to reduce in appearance. No exercise, special diet, lotion or cream is proven to eliminate it. Eating a healthy diet and leading an active lifestyle with regular exercise isn’t enough, as many patients in great physical condition retain cellulite.
Whilst many skin care companies go to great lengths in their marketing to claim their products remove cellulite, they, in fact, only tighten the top level of skin cells once applied, giving the initial appearance of firmer skin, only for it to wear off a couple of hours later.
Directly targeting the root cause of cellulite below the skin level with non-invasive acoustic shockwaves that regenerate collagen is the most effective way to reduce cellulite for the long term, and that’s where Zwave Pro Cellulite treatment comes in.
Why ZWave Pro
The radial pulse therapy that Zwave pro offers can target cellulite in common areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, upper arms, buttocks or thighs to leave the skin visibly smoother and healthier looking. ZWave Pro technology also helps increase lymphatic drainage, removes damaged fat cells during and after body contouring procedures, eliminates other visible imperfections on the body, fades scarring, and reduces stretch marks.
How Z Wave Cellulite Treatment Works
A single treatment with an experienced practitioner typically takes around thirty minutes, depending on the size and number of areas to be treated.
The patient will lie down, and a soft gel is applied to the skin over a treatment area to help transmit the acoustic shock waves. A handheld Zwave Pro device is moved slowly over the treatment area, directly targeting the cellulite.
No anesthetic or needles are required, so any discomfort is only minimal.
After the treatment, patients may experience mild redness or swelling, but it usually subsides within a few hours.
Considering ZWave is non-surgical and non-invasive, as there is no anesthesia, scalpels or stitches used, there is virtually no downtime. Most patients can return to work or home and resume their usual activities without problems.
What Results To Expect
The high-energy sound waves from the radial pulse technology work to break up fat deposits and trapped bubbles of gas. The gas will re-expand after treatment, and the fat will continue to be slowly eliminated. In most cases, the skin gradually becomes tighter and smoother after the first couple of treatments, with the best results seen after about six treatments. In some cases, it is recommended to have intermittent touch-up treatments to maintain the best result.
Each patient is unique, with varying degrees of cellulite. Each treatment will result in new collagen production, cell rejuvenation, increased blood flow and the strengthening of fibrous connective tissue, which reduces cellulite and scar tissue. It is highly recommended to have an initial consultation with a cosmetic surgeon to understand your timeline to see the full results.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Zwave Pro?
Zwave is for people who wish to reduce cellulite, stretch marks or scarring. It also enhances the results of those going through a cool sculpting or radio frequency procedure.
A good candidate is generally at a healthy weight, is in good overall health and has realistic expectations for the treatment results. Although Zwave is TGA Listed and has been clinically tested with proven results, it is not necessarily the best option for everyone.
It’s not recommended for people who are pregnant, has a pacemaker, or have a history of blood clotting or thrombosis.
It’s also important to note that ZWave treatment is not a weight loss solution. It is meant to improve the appearance of cellulite, not necessarily to remove it completely.
How Do I Know ZWave Pro Is Right For Me?
The best thing to do before booking any cosmetic procedure is to have a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon. They will be able to assess the severity of the cellulite and whether ZWave is the best treatment option for you. During the consultation, you will be able to ask questions and discover everything about the ZWave Pro Cellulite procedure, including the number of treatments you may need to achieve your best result and the cost of the treatments. After the initial consultation, if you feel comfortable that ZWave will work for you, you can schedule a procedure date and time with your cosmetic surgeon.
