Cellulite is an aesthetic annoyance that nearly everyone eventually develops. Because it can be particularly difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone, many people choose to seek cosmetic procedures to treat their cellulite. For those looking for a simple, non-invasive treatment option, there’s Z Wave. In some cases we also pair this treatment with Exilis Ultra for optimal cellulite reduction results. Ask us about this treatment option during your consultation!
Located in Auburn CA, the practice of Dr. Nancy Shibayama is committed to providing clients with an extensive range of aesthetic treatments. For more information about us or any of the services we offer, contact our practice today.
What is Z Wave Cellulite Reduction?
The Z Wave is a state-of-the-art skin tightening treatment that uses acoustic radial wave technology to eliminate cellulite effectively and safely. This procedure can be used in conjunction with other skin tightening and fat reduction techniques to improve their effectiveness, or on its own to combat a broad range of skin imperfections. Each treatment session takes less than 30 minutes to complete, and brings patients beautiful, long-lasting results.
How Does it Work?
During each Z Wave treatment session, both high energy and low energy shock waves are carefully aimed at the target treatment area. While the high energy shockwaves break down the grid structure of the fat cells, the smaller shockwaves collapse gas bubbles within the fat cells. After treatment, the overall strength and dignity of the fat cells are severely compromised.
These changes cause blood to rush to the area, enriching it with healing, rejuvenating nutrients. These shock waves also stimulate the production of collagen, one of the skin’s most important structural proteins. This protein makes the skin stronger, tighter, and smoother than before, helping dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite.
Because Z Wave strengthens the overall structure and integrity of the skin, it can be used to treat aesthetic issues outside of cellulite. This treatment is an excellent way to subtly tighten the skin and improve the appearance of stretch marks.
What is BTL Exilis Ultra?
BTL Exilis Ultra utilizes radio frequency with ultrasound to help erase cellulite. Energy is comfortably transferred to tissues through controlled cooling and heating. Contact and consult with Dr. Shibayama to learn more about this procedure!
Am I a Candidate for Z Wave Cellulite Reduction?
Nearly anyone interested in improving the appearance of cellulite is a potential candidate for a Z Wave treatment. During your initial consultation appointment with Dr. Shibayama, she will carefully examine your skin and decide if this treatment is right for you. If she feels that you wouldn’t benefit significantly from a series of Z Wave treatments, she can offer you suggestions about other treatments that may work better for your unique needs.
