    Skin tightening and body contouring

    Z Wave

    ZWave is used as a “stand-alone” application or in combination with other, mostly fat reduction methods. In the case of the “stand-alone” application, the focus is generally on improving the skin structure and connective tissue.

    Vanquish how it works

    What is Z Wave?

    Cellulite is a common skin flaw that many patients struggle with due to the fact that it is often resistant to diet and exercise. Z-Wave is an FDA-approved and innovative system designed to target and reduce the appearance of stubborn cellulite. The advanced Z Wave technology offers comfortable treatments that utilize pulse therapy and radio shockwaves, also known as radiotherapy. This specialized energy is delivered beneath the outermost layer of skin to smooth the surface for improved elasticity and softness. With this non-invasive and highly-effective remedy, you can improve problem cellulite with no required downtime.

    How does it work?

    Treatments are personalized during an initial consultation in order to determine the specific skin needs and aesthetic desires of each patient. During treatment, the Z Wave system is held to the targeted treatment area, and begins to emit the radiotherapy waves beneath the surface of skin. The energy waves then work to penetrate and target underlying layers of stubborn fat cells that cause the appearance of cellulite. The energy waves pressurize and break down the gas bubbles located between fat cells, while also destroying problem the fat cells. Collagen production is also activated within the tissue- improving both skin hydration and firmness. The Z Wave system offers results for firm and rejuvenated skin with no required downtime.

    What areas can be treated with Z Wave?

    ZWave is used as a “stand-alone” application or in combination with other, mostly fat reduction methods. In the case of the “stand-alone” application, the focus is generally on improving the skin structure and connective tissue. Typical application areas are, e.g. cellulite, connective tissue weakness (upper arm, underbelly, etc.) and stretch marks (striae).

    Preparation

    Because this procedure has required no forms of anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime, there is very little preparation that is required. We recommend that patients stay hydrated before and after their treatment as it will help to facilitate the best results. It is also important that patients maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to ensure the body is working at it’s best.

    Recovery

    After the Z Wave treatment, patients will be able to return to their daily routines immediately. There is no downtime whatsoever and patients will feel little to no discomfort. We do recommend that patients walk immediately after the treatment to enhance lymphatic drainage.
    If patients experience any redness or warmth, this is completely normal and will dissipate within one to two hours following their treatment.

    Results

    When paired with a healthy lifestyle and continued treatments, ZWave can provide long lasting results. You may begin to notice visible results after your first two to three treatments. Each following treatment you will notice that your skin is becoming smoother and tighter. Optimal results can be seen after six to ten treatments. Regular touch ups may be needed to maintain these results. Every patient is different and after your consultation a better time line for when to expect maximum results may be able to be given.

    • Will I need re-treatment? How long do results last following Z Wave?

      Every patient is different and after your consultation a better time line for when to expect maximum results may be able to be given.
    • What areas of the face and body can be treated with Exilis? *

      Small areas needing skin tightening or small amounts of body contouring are best suited for Exilis treatment. Frequently treated areas on the body include the abdomen, thighs, arms, knees, and neck. A more superficial treatment head of Exilis, called Protégé Elite, is used to treat crepiness on the face including around the eyes and lower face.
    • Will I need to change my lifestyle or follow a defined diet?

      Z Wave will help you achieve aesthetic improvement regardless of your lifestyle. You will not be required to exercise or alter your dietary habits. However, the treatment results give you a head start to a better looking body. Most patients feel motivated to take care of themselves better when the procedure is over.
    • Can I combine Exilis with other procedures? *

      Yes. Exilis is an excellent complement to Ultraformer 3, a robust ultrasound device used as a nonsurgical alternative to deeper tissue tightening. Exilis may also be combined with Protégé Elite during the same treatment, another radiofrequency device that best targets crepey, superficial skin changes. Patients that have undergone liposuction may also benefit from a series of Exilis treatments following surgery to encourage further skin tightening and enhance the body contouring effects of liposculpture. Typically, botulinum toxin injections such as Botox, Xeomin or Dysport are avoided on the same day of treatment. Fillers such as Juvederm or Sculptra are best completed at separate visits. However, other aesthetician services and some laser or light-based procedures such as IPL or Pico/Excel-V may be completed on the same day.
