ZWave PRO: Reduce Cellulite With Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy

photo_235The beautiful weather in Southern California makes it possible to wear a swimsuit nearly year round, but if you feel self-conscious about the presence of cellulite on your stomach, thighs, or buttocks you may avoid certain recreational activities to keep these perceived areas of concern covered. Even with a dedicated diet and fitness regimen cellulite can still exist. Fortunately, Deborah H. Atkin, M.D., our skilled dermatologist, offers an innovative cellulite reduction technique called ZWave PRO, which can reduce the appearance of dimpling with speedy results and no downtime.

The ZWave PRO utilizes acoustic radial wave technology to deliver harmless energy into the areas of concern and create shockwaves that break up the fibrous septa (fatty tissue) and gas bubbles that help to create the orange peel-like appearance on the skin. Designed to be gentle and effective, this treatment is entirely non-invasive and virtually pain free. The procedure generally lasts about 20-30 minutes, though this will depend on the number of areas you would like addressed. Furthermore, you should be able to return to normal activities immediately following the experience. During your initial consultation, Dr. Atkin will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and desired outcome. In most cases, we will advise you to receive between one and three treatments per week, with a total of 6 to 10 sessions. After completion, occasional maintenance sessions may help you to extend the benefits.

We are proud to offer this innovative technology, especially as patient comfort is one of our highest priorities. If you would like to find out more about this treatment, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Atkin, please contact our office today.
