Advanced Laser Medspa was one of the first in the United States to use Acoustic Wave Therapy™ (AWT™) for the treatment of cellulite. Acoustic Wave Therapy is a completely non-invasive treatment that uses dual technologies that simultaneously eliminate cellulite while helping to improve tone, texture, and elasticity of the skin. We are now introducing the next generation of cellulite treatments with the ZIMMER Z-WAVE which uses Radio Pulse Technology. This tech produces shockwaves which affect the collagen structure and the skin connective tissue. These affect the cellulite and improves the condition.
Additionally, our EndyMed with Radio Frequency is effective at treating cellulite. The EndyMed with Radio Frequency delivers heat to dermal layers with which remodels and tightens skin.
The appearance of cellulite is the effect of collagen bands hardening over time that press down on enlarged fat cells that in turn, push up against the skin. The accumulation of these stubborn fat cells causes the blood and lymphatic supply to the area to slow down, which results in the cellulite appearance worsening. This push/pull effect causes the unattractive rippling and/or dimpling appearance characterized by cellulite. Therefore cellulite is only seen in women.
Causes of Cellulite
Cellulite is caused by many different factors, including genetics, hormones, poor circulation as well as dietary influences. Over 90% of women have cellulite no matter their size, shape or level of fitness. Unfortunately, cellulite cannot be eliminated by diet and exercise alone. Starting Therapy with the Zimmer Z-Wave or ENDYMED treatment improve, correct and or prevent the degree of cellulite from worsening.
Zimmer Z-Wave Shockwaves (Acoustic Wave Therapy™)
Unlike other cellulite treatments, The Zimmer z-wave is an innovative technology that uses gentle acoustic waves and percussion to break up cellulite. This works by loosening those hard bands of collagen that are pushing down on the enlarged fat cells while simultaneously breaking up the trapped fat. By manually increasing lymph drainage and blood flow to the treated area, the body is able to naturally rid itself of the cellulite through its lymphatic system. The result is firmer skin.
At Advanced Laser Medspa, we find that using a combination of both treatments is most effective. During the consultation, we determine your goals and discuss whether the treatments are appropriate for you.
