Zimmer Z Wave Pro ShockWave Cellulite Body Treatment
What is the Zimmer Z Wave?
As a standalone, the Zimmer Z Wave Pro is a high energy radial shockwave treatment used to improve the appearance of cellulite, tighten and improve skin elasticity by having an impact on collagen structure and skin connective tissue. It also improves blood circulation and metabolism of the body’s fat cells.
Fat reduction is also enhanced by using the Z Wave right after the Zimmer Z Lipo Fat Freeze body treatment. The intense mechanical massage effect leads to a reduction of oedemas, and to an improved elimination of toxins.
“When one combines the cryolipolysis with the Z Wave Pro treatment, fat reduction as well as skin tightening is improved. Also the treatment of cellulite delivers convincing results coupled with a high patient acceptability – the therapy is pleasant and the skin feels
smooth and even.”
– DR. MED. MATTHIAS SANDHOFER, HAUT-ÄSTHETIK-LASER-VENENZENTRUM, LINZ, 02/2015
What is cellulite?
The characteristic ‘orange peel’ appearance of cellulite is either caused by an increase in the fat or interstitial liquid content, or to the alteration and retraction of connective tissue layers occurring at different times (i.e. rapid weight gain or weight loss). It occurs when enlarged fat cells push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, leading to the skin looking uneven and dimpled.
Cellulite can happen to anyone, of any gender, any size, any weight and at any age. It could be genetic, or due to aging – our skin becomes less elastic, thinner and more likely to sag. This contributes to cellulite development, which can happen in both males and females.
What goes on during a Z Wave session?
A gel or oil is first applied to the treatment area as a medium to introduce the acoustic sound waves into the body without energy loss. The lymph nodes are then stimulated with a low shock rate to open the lymphatic system before the actual treatment commences.
The high energy radial shockwaves consists of two different parts – positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component. The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules. The tensile wave leads to a collapse of the gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation), which re-expands after the high energy radial shockwaves and thus ensure a destabilization of the fat structures.
Thanks to its 39 mm applicator head, the Z Wave transmits the radial shockwaves directly and with a high precision into the tissue. As the shockwaves pass through homogenous elastic tissue, it doesn’t cause damage to the area but instead increases blood circulation, metabolism as well as leaving an antibacterial effect.
What does the Z Wave Shockwave do?
- Improve lymphatic drainage
- Stretch marks
- Boosts fat freeze results when used with Zimmer Z Lipo Cryolipolysis
- Combination with radio frequency
- Combination with ultrasound
- Skin tightening (general)
- Aesthetic scar treatment
- Improve lymphatic drainage
How long is the treatment, and Is it painful?
A Z Wave treatment takes about 10-20 minutes, and is usually painless. You may feel some heat during the treatment, but it is bearable and doesn’t cause too much discomfort.
How often do I have to do the Z Wave and how soon can I see the results?
When targeting Cellulite only – Depending on the degree of the cellulite, 6 – 10 sessions are usually recommended, each done a week apart. An active and healthy lifestyle is also recommended to ensure good results, such as 30-minutes exercise each day, as well as a low-fat diet and plenty of water intake for faster elimination of toxins.
When in combination with the Z Lipo Treatment – the fat reduction doubles in the first 4 weeks. The excess skin resulting from fat reduction or weight loss can be tightened using ZWave Pro. With this method of Z Wave Body Contouring, the treatment zone becomes softer in the transitional areas and a better outcome for the patient can be achieved at an earlier point.
