ZWave is used as a “stand-alone” application or in combination with other, mostly fat reduction methods. In the case of the “stand-alone” application, the focus is generally on improving the skin structure and connective tissue. Typical application areas are, e.g. cellulite, connective tissue weakness (upper arm, underbelly, etc.) and stretch marks (striae).
Using radial shockwaves for skin tightening, cellulite and general connective tissue tightening treatments has the following advantages:
No down time
The high energy radial shockwaves consists of two different parts – positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component. The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules. The tensile wave leads to a collapse of the gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation), which re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves and thus ensure a destabilization of the fat structures.
Is the treatment painful?
No, quite the contrary. Many patients say this treatment feels similar to a relaxing massage.
How quickly are the changes visible?
Clear changes are visible after only 2-3 sessions. Your skin will get smoother and noticeable firmer. It usually takes 6 to 10 sessions to complete the treatment.
Are the results long-lasting?
Regular refresher sessions, exercise and a balanced nutrition, will ensure long-lasting results.
