What is Cellulite?
As we age, we begin to develop divots and dimples in the thigh and buttocks area that impact the lives of 90% of women. Studies have shown this is due to tight bounds of connective tissue coursing through the fat, which pulls down the skin to create these irregularities. Any treatment that does not involve disrupting these bands results in only a temporary cosmetic cover up. Until recently, only invasive methods were used to see any long term results.
How does Zimmer Z Wave work?
Sonic waves are produced which cause cavitation bubbles that enter the tissue in order to break apart the fat cells and alter the texture and arrangement of the fibrous tissue in the treated region. We then use radiofrequency thermal radiation to heat the tissue, causing the collagen bundles to tighten, and then we use a far infrared light treatment to decrease the inflammatory component and enhance healing.
