Z Wave Pro uses high energy radial shockwaves to reduce and improve Grade 1-3 cellulite (mild to moderate dimpling). During the treatment, the system transmits powerful radial shockwaves into problem areas. This technology breaks down cellulite’s fibrous connective tissue and the surrounding tissue is affected and breaks occur in the grid of the molecules. This leads to a collapse of the gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation) and destabilizes the fat structures.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the herniation of fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests itself as skin dimpling and nodularity, usually on the buttocks, legs, and abdomen. This usually starts in women after puberty and rarely occurs in men. The causes of cellulite include a slow down in the metabolism, physiology, rapid weight loss, hormonal changes and genetic factors. Hormones play a dominant role in the formation of cellulite. Estrogen may be the most important hormone to initiate and aggravate cellulite. There is also a genetic element in individual susceptibility to cellulite
