What is Z-Wave?
The Z-Wave works by emitting radial shockwaves into the skin to stimulate new collagen production and increase blood circulation. The Z-Wave can be used as a stand-alone cellulite treatment, but it’s often paired with fat reduction treatments like the BodySculpt.
What causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes a lumpy appearance on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. According to Mayoclinic.org, “little is known about what causes cellulite. It involves fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling. In addition, hormonal factors play a large role in the development of cellulite, and genetics determine skin structure, skin texture and body type. Other factors, such as weight and muscle tone affect whether you have cellulite, though even very fit people can have it.”
