Learn How Our ZWave Treatment Improves the Appearance of Cellulite

You work out, you eat well, and you feel young-at-heart. You’re doing “everything right” to live a healthy lifestyle, and even though you maintain a healthy weight, you still have those visible areas of cellulite. To say this stubborn cellulite is discouraging — since you’re making the effort to stay fit — is an understatement.

But, cellulite doesn’t discriminate. In fact, 80-90% of women end up with cellulite at some point in their lives, as a result of genetics, hormones, age, diet, and lifestyle. So is there anything you can you do about it?

Here at Specialists in Dermatology, with locations in Tucson and Green Valley, Arizona, we offer a simple solution that delivers visible results with our advanced technology. Learn how our ZWave treatment can improve the appearance of cellulite.

Why you have cellulite

Whether you inherited it genetically or you lost some of your skin’s elasticity as you’ve gotten older, visible cellulite is the result of a two-fold problem. The fibrous connective cords that tether your skin to the underlying muscle pull down on your skin. At the same time, the layer of fat cells that have accumulated over the years pushes up against your skin.

This pushing and pulling action creates an uneven surface that you see as cellulite dimples. The texture of cellulite sometimes looks like the surface of an orange peel.

Although you can help minimize the appearance of cellulite by keeping the connective tissue within your body strong, staying hydrated, and losing extra pounds, for some men and women, these efforts don’t always deliver the results you desire. That’s where ZWave treatments come in.

ZWave is gentle, painless, and quick

The ZWave system for treating cellulite uses a radial pulse technology that’s noninvasive, gentle, and comes without downtime. It’s an effective treatment that easily fits into your busy lifestyle. The treat itself is so comfortable that many people compare it to a relaxing massage. And results are often visible after just a few treatments.

Depending on the severity of your cellulite, your provider at Specialists in Dermatology may recommend a minimum of 10 ZWave sessions performed over a three- to four-week period. Each treatment area takes just about four minutes, and you may notice smoother, firmer skin after your first two treatments. Results typically last six months to a year.

How ZWave is tough on cellulite, but easy on your skin

The ZWave high-energy, radial pulse technology delivers positive pressure pulses to the treated area, such as your hips, buttocks, and abdomen, where cellulite commonly develops. The handheld device also delivers a small, flexible wave component to the tissue beneath your skin. These two forces work together to improve the appearance of dimply, “cottage cheese” skin.

First, the high-energy pulses — sound waves — squeeze the tissue and break apart the structure of the fat layer. Next, the flexible wave energy leads to a collapse within the fat structures. These two forces work in combination to destabilize the fat structures of cellulite, so your skin appears tighter, firmer, and smoother.

If you’ve inherited cellulite over the years and you’re ready to do something about it, you’ve come to the right place. The team of expert dermatologists and nurses at Specialists in Dermatology can help.
