Some of the topics covered by Dr. Buinewicz in this paper are not FDA cleared and are considered off-label use.
Read the new white paper by Dr. Anna Buinewicz about treatments she offers using the Zimmer Z Wave device. The article focuses on Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa’s treatments for cellulite and for capsular contractures post breast enhancement. In the article, Dr. Buinewicz notes that her practice additionally employs the Radial Pulse Technology device to reduce patient swelling after plastic surgeries, to accelerate tattoo clearance, to assist in treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) through temporary increase in local blood flow, and to enhance outcomes for Cryolipolysis™.
The report walks through Dr. Buinewicz’s Z Wave treatment protocols and device settings. It then reviews her findings on patient satisfaction and how owning the device differentiates and boosts its business.
Dr. Buinewicz explains how Z Wave reduces the appearance of cellulite by improving microcirculation and lymphatic drainage. She adds that the Zimmer device also “disrupts and relaxes the underlying fibrous septal network, restoring elasticity of the fibrous bands and reducing the lumpy appearance.”
The majority of her patients are happy with the results after cellulite treatment with Z Wave. Dr. Buinewicz remarks, “Patient satisfaction exceeds 75%. For cellulite, this is quite impressive, especially for a non-invasive therapy that it is so difficult to otherwise effectively treat, and where patient expectations are more difficult to manage.”
Examining Z Wave’s success in treating capsular contractures, Dr. Buinewicz says,
Improvement of capsular contracture is dramatic for patients who were hoping for a better, softer breast enhancement result when they elected to undergo surgery. While the desired result takes time and repeated treatment to fully realize, patients report feeling significant release of tension or tightness after a single treatment. When combined with this safe and comfortable pain-free treatment experience, it promotes compliance and return for more sessions.
She also emphasizes how Z Wave’s technology and utility give her practice an edge in a competitive industry:
The Z Wave device is a workhorse for our practice and is in almost constant use. Aside from reliability, safety, patient comfort, and satisfying results, the appeal of Z Wave stems from the trend toward less invasive treatments with little or no downtime. Many patients prefer non-invasive options, which can include maintenance sessions, as a long-term solution to avoid surgery and its associated risks. Additionally, treatment is simple without the hassle associated with analgesia (including narcotics) or anesthesia. Patients can arrive to the office, receive treatment, and leave to go about their business. By my estimation, at least 65% of my patients come in seeking non-invasive modalities rather than surgery. Having this kind of capability at your disposal not only broadens your offerings, it prevents patients from seeking these treatments elsewhere.

About Zimmer Z Wave
The Zimmer Z Wave transmits powerful sound waves into the tissue. The energy then spreads out radially to enhance the treatment effect (Radial Pulse Therapy). The body responds to these sound waves with increased metabolic activity in the form of lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation. The result is an improvement in the appearance of cellulite and improved results when used with other body contouring procedures. For more information about the Z Wave, visit a web overview of the product. You may also contact Zimmer any time by phone or email.
