ZWave Body Contouring, Inner Image

Smooth, supple skin is a hallmark of a youthful appearance. Maintaining skin quality is often a battle against genetic, time, or environmental factors out of your control. As an example, cellulite can be a problem despite your strict attention to diet and exercise. If you are troubled by dimpled, loose or lumpy areas beneath the skin, there’s a new option available for available for you: ZWave treatment.

What is ZWave?

ZWave Pro Radial Pulse Technology by Zimmer was developed in Europe. It employs acoustic waves (also referred to as radial shockwaves). These pulsing waves cause pockets of fat and gas beneath the skin to break up. This results in a smoother skin appearance.

ZWave treatments promote angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. This can support healing and also reduce swelling. The treatment is non-invasive. Far from causing pain, it has been described by patients as being pleasurable, not unlike a massage. There is no skin numbing or anesthesia needed in this non-invasive, non-surgical treatment.

When is ZWave Body Contouring Used?

ZWave can have benefits in addressing a number of issues:

  • Smoothing the appearance of cellulite
  • Tightening and contouring following liposuction
  • Scar treatment
  • Skin tightening in combination fat reduction treatments, such as CoolSculpting
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks


If you decide to choose ZWave, what can you expect? Here are some answers to common questions about this groundbreaking treatment.

What parts of my body can be treated?

ZWave is commonly used to treat areas of the thighs and buttocks. It can also be used on the abdomen and upper arms to smooth and firm.

How long does treatment take?

The length of a treatment session can range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. The time required will depend upon the number of body areas being treated.

What is recovery like?

Your skin may be slightly red or feel warm to the touch after your treatment session. At Inner Image, we will take the time to provide additional insight or answer questions you might have based on our experience with ZWave patients. You’ll be able to return to your usual activities immediately after your treatment.

How soon will I see results?

The time needed to see visible improvements will vary, based upon the treatment area and the current condition of your skin. It should be noted that multiple treatment sessions are required for the best results from ZWave therapy. Many of our patients see visible improvements after two or three treatments. You may not see the full results you are hoping to achieve until you have received six to ten treatments. The staff at Inner Image will be able to outline the program that will be best for you.

How long do the results last?

The results from your initial series of treatments will be long-lasting, particularly for those who follow a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine.
