What Causes Cellulite?
There are many myths surrounding cellulite, and many of these myths fuel the sale of over-the-counter topicals that do little to no good. One of these myths is that cellulite is due to toxins building up in your body. Rather, cellulite is due to fat deposits pushing through the connective bands in areas like the buttocks and legs.
These bands are made up of collagen fibers, and they can become weakened over time. Cellulite is more common in women than in men, and this is largely due to hormonal differences.
How Does Z Wave Work?
Cellulite can’t be treated with body contouring alone, rather, it needs a treatment like Z Wave to address the connective bands directly. Z Wave uses high energy radial shockwaves to improve blood circulation and strengthen the collagen fibers in the connective bands.
This treatment can be combined with non-surgical body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting® to maximize the results. A simple way to explain it is that with CoolSculpting®, some cells are killed, some cells aren’t, and some cells are undecided. With Z Wave, some of these undecided cells will be pushed to the point that they die. The benefits of this treatment as a stand-alone option include:
- It is non-invasive and non-surgical
- There is no downtime
- The treatment is pain-free
- Results will appear after only a few treatment sessions
Most patients start to notice results after four weeks, and some even report a complete reduction in visible cellulite at this time. In addition to treating cellulite, Z Wave helps to support the skin structure, which means less loose skin.
How Long Do the Results Last?
After your initial round of treatment sessions are complete, we recommend making healthy lifestyle changes in order to maintain your results. The results from this treatment can be exceptionally long-lasting with occasional follow-up treatments as well.
