Patients have the option to undergo one longer treatment session, or three shorter ones in each treatment area. By combining all of its’ energy technology into one application, the result causes deep heating of the fat cells, as well as their surrounding connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin, which results in localized reduction in skin laxity and body volume.
For the past two years, Zimmer’s ZWave device has found a home in my practice because of its effective and safety profile as a standalone technology for cellulite treatments and for reduction of edema, subdermal irregularities and improved vascularization after nonsurgical, minimal invasive and surgical procedures for face/neck and body contouring. Of the many devices in my aesthetic center, I would strongly recommend ZWave as a complement to enhance the results of an integrated aesthetic practice. Other perceived benefits are that the device cost is affordable, patient acceptance is high, and staff are comfortable in the providing treatments. My clinical research with this device supports our observed outcomes.Gordon H. Sasaki, MD, FACS

Since we have been using the ZWave for massage after CoolSculpting®, we have seen a dramatic improvement in nerve discomfort after the procedure. If patients do have discomfort, we have found that a few additional ZWave treatments help to diminish that discomfort more rapidly. The fat reduction after CoolSculpting® with ZWave is noticeable more quickly, as early as 4 weeks after treatment, and may be more pronounced in some patients. We also like the consistency of the massage no matter which clinician is performing the
