Non-invasive cellulite reduction
Cellulite – most women have it, but virtually no woman wants it. In fact, cellulite can be found in 90% of women and 10% of men at some point within their lives. Historically, cellulite treatment options have consisted of invasive procedures that end up harming the septum layer of the skin, resulting in sagging. Fortunately, now you have more options now than ineffective cosmeceuticals or damaging treatments to get rid of cellulite. EsthetixMD in Bend Oregon, now offers the latest technology in non-invasive cellulite treatment with the Zwave, a new device that uses acoustical radial waves that cause a destabilization of the fat structure we know as cellulite.
Say goodbye to cellulite
With ZWave technology, acoustic radial waves and smaller tensile waves are generated over the treatment area to destabilize the fat structure that creates the dimpled or “cottage cheese” look of cellulite. This results in a mechanical and biochemical lipolysis (breakdown of the fat tissues), as well as softening of the septum that contributes to the matrix-like appearance, strengthening of the connective tissues that lead to smoother skin, and an overall smoother, tighter appearance in the treatment area. It also improves draining of your lymphatic system — all without the downtime or saggy effects of other cellulite treatments!
At EsthetixMD, we are equipped with the new ZWave Q system that includes both a large and small handpiece so we can treat both large areas such as the abdomen and thighs, as well as smaller areas that need more refined and focused precision.
Many patients choose to pair their ZWave cellulite treatment with CoolSculpt or CoolMini to achieve the maximum benefits for their body contours: CoolSculpting stimulates cryolipolysis, or freezing of fat cells that causes them to die and be flushed out naturally by the body, and then ZWave reduces the appearance of cellulite in the treatment area and improves the skin quality, firmness, and elasticity.
What can I expect at my Zwave Appointment?
Unfortunately there is no cure for Cellulite. Zwave offers many great advantages to reduce the visual effects of this condition.
- Treatments are painless
- Require no anesthesia
- Require no down time
- Offers visible results
- Will not break your bank account
- It is relatively quick
ZWave – Cellulite treatment with radial shockwaves.
ZWave is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that you can get on your lunch hour. No downtime is necessary.
Experienced providers use ZWave in conjunction with other treatments, such as CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting has been approved for as a fat-reducing treatment. Using extreme cold, this device causes crystals to form in the lipids of fat cells. Cellulite is not necessarily a fat problem, so may not improve with fat-reduction. ZWave disrupts cells and affects the overlying mesh of fibers to create a smoother surface.
Research suggests that the longest lasting results occur when treatment is followed up with healthy eating and exercise habits. Because hormones also play a role in the development of cellulite, there is a risk that the condition may occur at some point.
The length of treatment depends on the area we are treating, or if we are treating multiple areas. A typical session focused on one area will last about 30 minutes.
The technology used to restructure fibrous bands and fat cells causes no discomfort whatsoever. Patients find the convenience and comfort of this treatment appealing.
