Cellulite Treatment

Z Wave Pro “Catch the Z Wave”

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.

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It usually affects the buttocks and thighs, but can also occur in other areas. Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin. Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue.

Grade 1, or mild: There is an "orange-peel" appearance, with between 1 and 4 superficial depressions, and a slightly "draped" or sagging appearance to the skin.

Grade 2, or moderate: There are between five and nine medium-depth depressions, a "cottage cheese" appearance, and the skin appears moderately draped.

Grade 3, or severe: There is a "mattress" appearance, with 10 or more deep depressions, and the skin is severely draped.

There is no cure for cellulite, however, there are treatments that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
