ZWave: The Best in Non-Invasive Cellulite Treatment

14 Aug

Cellulite is one of the toughest cosmetic concerns we encounter. It affects as many as 90% of adult women and can affect a variety of body areas. If you’re bothered by the appearance of cellulite, you’re not alone – many patients don’t feel confident wearing swimsuits, shorts, or skirts because of cellulite. At EsthetixMD, we offer a variety of cellulite treatments designed to create smooth, youthful skin texture with noticeable results. We offer ZWave, one of the most state-of-the-art, clinically proven options you’ll find here in Bend, OR. Here’s what to know about this cellulite reduction treatment and how it can help you achieve your body goals.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite is the natural product of how the female body stores fat cells. The skin is naturally tethered to the deeper tissues by fibrous bands of collagen, and between these two layers is subcutaneous fat. When fat pushes the skin outward, the fibrous bands keep certain areas of skin in place, resulting in a dimpled appearance. Because of the way cellulite occurs, topical treatments and cellulite creams won’t work. The only effective way to reduce cellulite is by targeting these collagen bands in the skin.

What is ZWave?

ZWave is an FDA-cleared cellulite reduction treatment. It uses a feature called acoustic wave therapy to destabilize the structure of the connective tissue that contributes to the appearance of cellulite. Rather than treating only the surface of the skin or reducing fat, it softens the underlying fiber mesh and improves lymphatic drainage at the same time. The result is firmer skin, better skin texture, and more supple skin.

How Does Treatment Work?

ZWave doesn’t require any anesthesia, incisions, or needles. During your 20-30-minute treatment session, you’ll relax in our luxury treatment suite while the applicator sends laser energy through the skin’s surface. We offer both large and small handpieces to effectively target most patients’ treatment area needs. This minimally invasive treatment comes with minimal downtime and you can get right back to your busy schedule afterward.

How Many Treatment Sessions Do I Need?

The number of sessions you’ll need will depend on your goals and circumstances. You might begin to see results within 2-3 sessions, but it might take 6-10 sessions for the best results. Fortunately, these can take place over a 3-4 week period. During a consultation, our team will give you a complete estimate of how many cellulite reduction treatments you can expect at our Bend, OR office.

Does ZWave Hurt?

ZWave is completely pain-free. The handpiece only emits the wave therapy through the skin’s surface without causing any discomfort. If pain is a main concern when looking at treatment options, ZWave is our most recommended option.

Does Fat Reduction Treat Cellulite?

Fat reduction and cellulite reduction are two different things. Although some patients see cellulite reduction with weight loss, it’s not a surefire way to reduce cellulite. Body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting don’t directly target cellulite, meaning the results aren’t guaranteed. That being said, many patients benefit from a combination of cellulite reduction treatments and body contouring options. In short, for stubborn cellulite, it’s best to skip the topical treatments and consider cellulite reduction treatments such as ZWave that will get the results you want.
