Victoria’s Cosmetic Medical Clinic offers Z-Wave Pro Cellulite treatment, a high-tech cellulite treatment which effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite on the surface of the skin, while also working to tighten the skin and reduce stretch marks in treatment areas. This cellulite treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, and most people experience no pain or discomfort during their treatment.
Z-Wave Pro cellulite treatment is able to treat cellulite, tighten skin, reduce stretch marks, and help fade scarring by improving your skin’s collagen production and elasticity.
The Z-Wave Pro medical device is used on specific treatment areas. The radial pulses send energy through the skin to impact the collagen structure and connective tissue. The device works by affecting the structure of the skin and cellulite to tighten the skin and break up cellulite, reducing its appearance on the surface of the skin.
Cellulite is the name that is given to the tethering of tissue around fat deposits under the skin that cause it to have a lumpy and dimpled appearance. Other names like cottage-cheese and orange-peel skin have also been given to the condition. While cellulite affects both men and women, the condition is far more prevalent in women. The reason for this is that the bodies of men and women have developed differently, with the female body commonly having a predisposition for a higher fat content than their male counterparts, who are biologically more inclined to have more muscle than fat.
Almost all women will experience some form of cellulite in their lifetime. Women are more likely to get cellulite because of how their bodies store fat in comparison to that of men. The ratio of muscle, fat and connective tissue is different in females than it is in males. Males predominantly carry their excess fat in their abdominal region whereas females carry and store fat in their lower abdomen, hips, bottoms and thighs.
The short answer is no, there are 3 different types of cellulite.
Adipose: this type of cellulite is caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, especially due to an unhealthy diet and a lack of exercise. You can only see this cellulite when the skin has been pinched.
Aqueous: this cellulite type is caused by water retention in the body. This is the type that is commonly paired with the orange-peel appearance of skin and is found throughout the body.
Fibrous: this kind of cellulite is extreme, caused by previous cellulite remaining untreated. This cellulite may feel hard, and painful, when touched. It mainly appears as visible lumps on the hips and thighs.
Patients typically receive about 10 treatments each lasting about 15-30 minutes, depending on the areas treated, to maximise the benefits of Z-Wave Pro therapy.
In most occasions, cellulite occurs primarily in the arms, buttocks, thighs and abdomen; the Z-Wave Pro is most commonly used in these areas.
Most patients will notice skin tightening and improvement in the appearance of cellulite after just a couple of treatments. The smoothing and tightening continue with each successive session until maximum results are achieved.
