Dr Merrick Elias - Z Wave demo for cellulite

In this video, Dr. Merrick D. Elias demonstrated an effective treatment for cellulite using the Zimmer Z Wave device.  Z Wave is a powerful soundwave mechanism that increases metabolic activity in the form of lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation. Dr. Elias noted that it is one of his “favorite pieces of equipment”.

Beginning his discussion about treatments with the device, Dr. Elias mentioned that his practice uses the machine to improve the appearance of cellulite, as well as following CoolSculpting™ (Cryolipolysis™). After CoolSculpting, Z Wave replaces manual massage, “which can be a little uneven,” he said. “This helps keep an even distribution of our massage.”

Dr. Elias then listed some off-label applications for which the device can be used. Among them, he noted that Z Wave can be used with tattoo removal procedures, as well as to improve or resolve capsular contractures after breast reconstruction.

The treatment was performed over the patient’s thin pants. She appeared calm and motionless as the radial sound waves were applied across her buttocks. Z Wave’s non-invasive Radial Pulse Technology fits in perfectly with the overall painless approach at Elias Dermatology. Following the demo of the short procedure, Dr. Elias pointed out, “As you can see, our patient didn’t have any flinching. There’s no numbing medicine necessary. We do use [Z Wave] over clothes. It can also be done on skin contact. It is very comfortable. Our patient is still relaxing and in no discomfort at all.”

The Elias Dermatology practice website explains that the office uses Z Wave to treat “cellulite, dimpling, stretch marks, and scarring.” The web page states that this non-invasive technology “improves skin’s elasticity and collagen production” by sending radial energy through the skin, “breaking up fat and gas bubbles found between cellulite.” According to the website, the treatment takes only a few minutes and the outcome leaves “fat capsules… eliminated, resulting in increased collagen production and blood flow.”

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.
