Zimmer Q & A

Pineapple Health

What is the Zimmer ZWave?

The Zimmer ZWave is an advanced aesthetic tool available at Pineapple Health that helps improve skin tone and elasticity. In addition to improving the appearance of cellulite, the aesthetic experts at Pineapple Health also use it to:

  • Lessen the appearance of stretch marks and scars
  • Tighten the skin to improve tone
  • Support lymphatic drainage

ZWave is noninvasive, painless, and requires no special preparation prior to treatment, or downtime afterward.

How does the Zimmer ZWave work?

The Zimmer ZWave uses high energy radial shockwave to improve skin appearance and can be used on various parts of your body, including your:

  • Legs and buttocks
  • Arms
  • Abdomen

The energy consists of a positive pressure pulse and a tensile wave unit. The shockwave squeezes your tissue and breaks up the connective tissue, while the tensile wave eliminates the gas bubbles within the fat. The fat then re-expands, but in a tighter space that prevents the pocketing of the skin, or what you may refer to as cellulite.

What can I expect during treatment?

Treatment with the Zimmer ZWave is painless and feels like a relaxing massage. Treatment time varies depending on the area, or areas, you’re targeting. To get the best results, you may need up to 10 sessions.

Your aesthetic specialist at Pineapple Health develops a personalized treatment plan so you know what to expect before getting started.

To maintain your cellulite-free look, Pineapple Health recommends a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a nutritious diet. Dr. Chan and his team provide the tools to enhance your health and beauty, but you need to take an active role too.

Can I use the Zimmer ZWave after body contouring?

Yes, you can combine the Zimmer ZWave with one of the body contouring systems available at Pineapple Health, which include CoolSculpting®  and TruSculpt iD®. Both of these body reshaping systems get rid of pockets of unwanted fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise. Combining the body sculpting with the Zimmer ZWave aesthetically improves your overall look.
