FDA-approved ZWave by Zimmer Aesthetics uses radial shockwaves to penetrate and break up fat which reduces the appearance of cellulite and increases collagen production. After treatments skin is left looking more youthful, firm, and healthier.
We are especially excited to offer ZWave because of its benefits when used in combination with CoolSculpting and other body treatments we offer. CoolSculpting alone removes 20-25% of fat in treated areas, but add ZWavePRO, and remove an additional 8-10% (results vary.)
Our CoolSculpting Master Practitioner, Nicole Territo, LE, is especially excited to be treating her CoolSculpting clients with ZWave. Under her leadership, and with the technologies of which she is a master, our Marin clientele enjoy the very best body sculpting results.
PRIME, the anti-aging journal, published a study showing that ZWave can have a significant impact upon CoolSculpting’s fat absorption speed. The study compared CoolSculpting followed immediately by a 3-minute ZWave session vs CoolSculpting without ZWave and found that it doubled the rate of fat absorption.
Who wants to reach their body contouring results faster?! With our two CoolSculpting machines, which can be used simultaneously, plus ZWave-enhanced fat absorption you’ll need fewer appointments and reach your body sculpting goals faster.
And (yes, there’s more to be excited about) ZWave also firms skin, so while you are losing fat with your CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll lessen wrinkly, sagging skin.
What happens during treatment?
No numbing is needed for this non-surgical, pain-free treatment. A HVME Body Specialist will apply a gel to the treatment areas to allow the 39-millimeter-wide handheld tool to glide over the surface of your skin. Most patients report a feeling of a pleasant massage.
What’s The Science?
Rapid, high-energy waves, known as radial shockwaves, acoustic radial waves, or ARWT, send energy though the skin which breaks up the fat and gas bubbles that make up the connective tissue surrounding cellulite. This process leads to boosted blood flow, cell rejuvenation, and collagen production.
ZWave’s applicator head allows our practitioners to transmit shockwaves into tissue with targeted precision. The device emits both tensile waves and positive pressure pulses to refine the results further.
ZWave is registered with the FDA as a medical device.
