Smooth, firm skin is a common desire for most patients, not just for their face but all over their body. Patients have struggled with cellulite, stretch marks, and scarring. Now ZWave provides a new alternative in the search for youthful and flawless skin a struggle. ZWave is, an advanced FDA approved cellulite treatment without surgery or invasive measures. This article will discuss why cellulite is so hard to get rid of and everything you need to know about the ZWave.

What is Cellulite and Why Is It So Hard to Reduce?

Many patients struggle to reduce the appearance of cellulite. In fact, although cellulite is cosmetically unappealing, it is completely normal. Most women have cellulite and so do many men. The dimpled appearance that we know as cellulite is caused by the fibrous tethers running through pockets of fat that are pulling on the fascia that lies underneath your skin. It is not just a collection of fat but actually in the structure.

It is more common for women to have cellulite because of how their connective tissue is put together. Fat goes through women’s connective tissue much easier than men. Where you get cellulite can have to do with genetics. This is why some patients only have cellulite on their upper thighs and others have cellulite it on many other areas of their bodies. Unfortunately, a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine to lose weight will not always reduce cellulite. Even patients that are in great physical shape have cellulite. There is no proven exercise to get rid of cellulite.

No magic lotions or creams have been found to reduce cellulite either. Many skincare products that do claim to lessen the appearance of cellulite only tighten the top layer of skin. This gives the appearances of tighter and firmer skin, but will wear off within a few hours.
Due to how common cellulite is and how difficult it is to reduce, the ZWave treatment that is FDA approved to treat cellulite is a great option to help patients get the results that they desire. Keep reading to learn more about ZWave and the other benefits this innovative treatment offers.

What Is ZWave Cellulite Treatment?
ZWave uses Radial Pulse Therapy, or RPT to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate cellulite. This treatment can also help to treat stretch marks and scarring. It can be used on many different areas of the body such as hips, buttocks, upper arms, abdomens, and thighs. After treatments skin is left looking more youthful, firm, and healthier.

How ZWave Works
This advanced treatment is able to treat cellulite, tighten skin, reduce stretch marks, and help fade scarring by improving your skin’s collagen production and elasticity. The ZWave medical device is used on specific treatment areas. The radial pulses send energy through the skin to impact the collagen structure and connective tissue. These high-energy waves break up fat and gas bubbles found between cellulite. After the bubbles of gas have re-expanded when your treatment has been completed, the fat capsules continue to be eliminated. This results in increased blood flow, cell rejuvenation, boosted collagen production, strengthening of connective tissue, and improvement of scar tissues.

What To Expect During Your Treatment
The first step for any cosmetic treatment is a consultation. During this time, you will learn more about the treatment and ensure that this is the right procedure for you. If you feel comfortable with what the treatment entails, then you will schedule an appointment for the procedure.

On the day of your cellulite treatment session, there is no need to be nervous, as most patients experience no discomfort or pain during their treatment. ZWave uses a device to precisely target your problem areas to disrupt the fatty tissue. The device’s handheld applicator is directly applied onto the treatment areas. For the best results six to ten sessions are recommended. Patients can have multiple sessions a week. Each ZWave treatment usually takes twenty to thirty minutes to complete. This time will vary depending on how many areas are being treated and the size of the treatment area.

What is Recovery Like After A ZWave Cellulite Treatment?
Following your ZWave treatment there is little to no downtime due to the noninvasive nature of the treatment. Many patients are able to return to their normal activities following their session. You will notice gradual improvement in the texture of your skin as you continue the course of your treatments.

What Results to Expect After Treatment?
When paired with a healthy lifestyle and continued treatments, ZWave can provide long lasting results. You may begin to notice visible results after your first two to three treatments. Each following treatment you will notice that your skin is becoming smoother and tighter. Optimal results can be seen after six to ten treatments. Regular touch ups may be needed to maintain these results. Every patient is different and after your consultation a better time line for when to expect maximum results may be able to be given.

Are You a Good Candidate for ZWave?
ZWave is a safe, clinically tested, and effective treatment for many patients, but it is not a perfect fit for everyone This is why an initial consultation is one of the best ways to determine what treatments can give you your desired results.
