ELAN Skin offers Z-Wave Radial Pulse Therapy ideal for treating cellulite, stretch marks, scars and unwanted pockets of fat located on the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, hips and buttocks. The Z-Wave Treatment works to target cellulite by transmitting powerful sound waves into problem areas characterized by extreme flabbiness and dimpling. Although painless, the Z-Wave pulses are powerful enough to break down cellulite’s fibrous connective tissue, thereby expediting the extrusion of fatty acids into the blood for natural elimination.
Using radial shockwaves for skin tightening, cellulite and general connective tissue tightening treatments has the following advantages:
During the Z-Wave procedure, high-energy radial shockwaves are applied to the skin. These shockwaves improve blood circulation and the drainage of waste through the lymphatic system to strengthen connective tissue. The result leads to healthier, collagen-rich tissue with a renewed ability to retract around muscle and bone. Furthermore, Z-Wave improves circumference, tone and definition in a wide variety of areas — from arms, legs and stomach, to full-body contouring.
One treatment will normally take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
Patients report seeing exceptional results in about 2 treatments.
On average the patient will receive 6-10 treatments to complete the series of sessions to achieve maximum results. Each patient is unique and will have varying levels of unwanted fat deposits and cellulite on their bodies.
The sensation of the treatment is a minimal vibration/massage. Patients report the machine can be a bit noisy, but no discomfort at all. You can treat any area on the body. The protocol is 6 to 10 treatments, one week apart. There may be slight redness and minimal swelling after the treatment.
Though cellulite is hormonal and may return, results from Z-Wave are long-lasting when coupled with a healthy diet and exercise. Patients report additional skin tightening when paired with their Coolsculpting® treatments.
