The Zimmer Z Wave Pro transmits powerful sound waves into the tissue. The energy then spreads out radially to enhance the treatment effect. The body responds to the Z Wave Pro sound waves with increased metabolic activity in the form of lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation. The end result is an improvement in the appearance of cellulite and other body contouring procedures.
The Z Wave by Zimmer is a device that uses sound waves to reduce the appearance of cellulite anywhere on the body it may appear. The sound waves used in the treatment increase metabolic activity to cause lymphatic drainage and increase blood circulation, both of which can help dramatically improve the visibility of cellulite.
Z Wave is also a great treatment to use in tandem with other body contouring devices. Thanks to Z Wave, it is possible to significantly enhance body contouring results with Cryolipolysis™ and RF treatments. Various studies have demonstrated a 20% “boost” with body contouring treatments.
If you have unwanted cellulite that you’d like to address without surgery, you may be a candidate for Z Wave. Dr. Holley and his team will work with you to determine if Z Wave is the best procedure option for you.
During your treatment, one of the West Michigan Plastic Surgery staff members will place the Z Wave device on the area of treatment needed. Z Wave is most often used on the abdomen, upper arm, legs, or buttocks. The entire Z Wave treatment takes only a few minutes.
Z Wave is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that is not painful. Many patients comment that the Z Wave treatment feels similar to a relaxing massage.
Patients who receive Z Wave cellulite treatment can expect to see a notable reduction in the appearance of their cellulite in the treatment area. If patients receive Z Wave in tandem with another body contouring treatment, such as CoolSculpting®, they should also expect to see enhanced fat reduction and body contouring treatment results.
The number of treatments you will need varies on the specific condition being treated. For example, when paired with Cryolipolysis™, only one treatment is needed. Your team will work with you when creating your customized treatment plan to determine exactly how many treatments you will need.
There is no downtime associated with Z Wave.
