Sagging skin is one of the unfortunate effects of aging. As our body produces less collagen and elastin, our skin sags. At Gold Skin Care Center, it’s our goal to help our patients fight back against the effects of aging. One of our tools to address sagging skin is the ZWave Pro system.
What is ZWave Pro?
ZWave Pro is a patient-friendly sound wave technology used by Dr. Gold and team members of The Laser & Rejuvenation Center to tighten skin and address other other unwanted signs of aging such as cellulite and stubborn fat pockets. ZWave Pro utilizes radial shockwaves to initiate a skin tightening response in the body. The procedure also tightens the body’s general connective tissues, resulting in a decrease in the appearance of cellulite. The treatments are non-invasive, pain-free and have no downtime.
The procedure can also be used in combination with other treatments, including cryolipolysis, ultrasound, radio frequency and laser. The effects of such procedures can be enhanced with the ZWave Pro treatment. When used as a standalone procedure, the treatment is generally focused on the improvement of skin structure.
Who are good candidates for a ZWave Pro procedure?
During your initial consultation, a thorough evaluation will be made to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to identify the treatment that best fits your situation. Dr. Gold usually recommends a ZWave Pro treatment to eliminate cellulite and stretch marks. It can also be used for general skin tightening and body contouring procedures, or in aesthetic scar treatment.
How does the ZWave Pro work?
ZWave Pro has proven to be an effective treatment for sagging skin. This technology has a 39mm applicator head, which transmits radial shockwaves directly into the tissues in a precise manner. Introducing a mechanical pressure wave into the treatment site disrupts the structure of fatty tissue and promotes various tissue reactions that have a positive effect on skin structure.
