What Is ZWave Body Contouring?

When it comes to modern body sculpting, both non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening have become increasingly popular alternatives to surgical intervention. Both of these treatments can be incredibly effective, and with the help of the ZWave radial shockwave technology, you can achieve vastly improved firmness and elasticity of you skin and increase collagen regeneration all without the need for any invasive procedures.

As the ZWave treatment stimulates collagen production deep in the skin, the skin as a result becomes more elastic and firm. With radial shockwaves from the Zimmer ZWave Pro, collagen regeneration is dramatically improved and fat levels can be reduced. After only a few treatments, the ZWave Pro can visibly increase skin firmness.

How Much Does ZWave Treatment Cost in Birmingham, MI?

The cost of ZWave body contouring at Clarkston Dermatology depends on a few factors, including the treatment areas and the number of sessions you need to see the results you are looking for.

What Can ZWave Treat?

Almost any area of the skin affected by cellulite or loose, sagging skin can be improved with the Zimmer ZWave treatment, and multiple areas can be treated at any one time. The majority of ZWave treatments focus on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms. The following conditions in these areas are just a few examples of what can be treated with ZWave technology:

  • Stretch marks
  • Cellulite
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Aesthetic scar treatment
  • General skin tightening

What Are the Benefits of ZWave Treatment?

The ZWave treatment can provide patients with significant results once completed and treat several problem areas with an improvement in not only skin laxity but stretch marks and cellulite. Benefits of ZWave include:

  • ZWave has been clinically tested and is proven to be an effective and safe treatment.
  • It’s fast-acting, and when coupled with a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise, results can be long-lasting.
  • It’s an effective treatment for areas such as the upper arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs.
  • The ZWave procedure is pain-free, and it can even be quite relaxing.
  • The procedure will leave you with tighter, smoother, and overall healthier-looking skin.
  • Stubborn and disproportionate pockets of fat can be treated with ZWave.
  • You can improve the contours of the body with ZWave and reduce overall circumference of treatment areas.

How Does the ZWave Procedure Work?

With the use of a special ZWave wand, high energy sound waves are projected deep into the tissue where the energy then spreads radially through the treatment area. There are two main components to the shockwaves: positive pressure pulses, which squeeze the tissue and massage the structure of the molecules, and smaller tensile waves, which collapse gas bubbles stored in fat structures that will later expand and destabilize the fat cells.

Studies of the ZWave treatment have shown that tissue reactions that are beneficial to skin structure are triggered by the mechanical pressure waves that emanate from the ZWave wand. Additionally, metabolic activity is then increased in response to the sound wave energy which improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
