Men and women have plenty of options for body contouring, both surgical and non-surgical. Fat reduction procedures can help produce a slimmer, more defined physique. However, patients with severe skin laxity and textural issues may still struggle with the look and feel of their skin. Conditions such as cellulite, stretch marks, and connective tissue weakness can obscure the effects of body contouring, resulting in a lackluster enhancement. With non-surgical treatment with Z Wave, or by combining Z Wave with other procedures, patients can achieve firm, smooth skin that complements their attractive body shape.
- Non-invasive treatment
- No downtime
- Various treatment sites
- Painless procedure
Patients who desire a firmer, more pleasing skin surface may qualify for treatment with Z Wave if they are in generally good health. The ideal candidates for Z Wave must also have realistic expectations of the procedure.
Z Wave device delivers precise radial shockwaves to the treatment area. This energy penetrates the tissue, breaking up the fat molecules and fibrous connective tissue that cause skin dimpling. This process also stimulates collagen production, which improves elasticity and the structure of the skin naturally for long-lasting results. Most patients reveal that the treatment feels similar to a massage. Patients may experience a slight burning sensation during treatment, but this side effect tends to dissipate quickly.
Patients who undergo Z Wave treatment may return to work and their daily activities immediately following the procedure. There is no need for downtime, although some report having mild, temporary redness in the treatment area after their Z wave procedure.
Most patients notice an improvement in skin laxity and structure after two to three appointments. Usually, the best results are achieved with weekly sessions for at least six weeks. Scheduling regular Z Wave treatments and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle helps preserve results.
