At RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment & Wellness Center, we get it—cellulite is an embarrassing condition that can really kill your confidence! It has many of our patients engineering their outfits to strategically cover and conceal that annoying “cottage cheese” look. Not only that, it can ruin those intimate moments with your partner. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with unsightly dimpled and lumpy skin any longer. With Z Wave treatments in Northern Washington, you can finally make cellulite a thing of the past.   

What’s Behind Cellulite

Cellulite is normal fat beneath the skin that’s pushing against fibrous connective tissue, causing the skin above it to appear pitted and bumpy. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not simply caused by excess fatty tissue, which is why anyone, overweight or thin, can get it. While the thighs, buttocks, and back areas are the most commonly affected, cellulite can also occur on the upper arms, abdomen, and most anywhere that fat can accumulate.

Unfortunately, experts remain unsure what is behind the emergence of embarrassing cellulite. While they do know that it’s not caused by any particular toxins in the body, leading an overall healthy lifestyle can keep the signs of cellulite at bay. Cellulite also seems to be more prevalent in smokers, those who do not exercise, and those who lead a more sedentary lifestyle. People who eat a diet high in fat, carbs, and sodium are more likely to see cellulite as well.

You’re Not Alone

Sorry, woman, but cellulite affects you more than men. While you may feel all alone in your battle against cellulite, this unattractive condition will affect nearly all women at some point. It’s estimated that about 90 percent of females will develop cellulite somewhere on the body during her lifetime. While it’s more likely to occur later in life, cellulite can affect younger individuals and even teenagers as well, and it tends to get worse as you age. Cellulite has also been shown to be hereditary, so if your mom has it, you’ll probably have it too. 

Smooth Out Cellulite with Z Wave

We have good news for you! Treatments with non-invasive Z Wave can provide you with temporary relief from cellulite. Perfect for the abdomen, upper arms, buttock, and legs, this procedure works to treat unwanted cellulite by delivering high-energy radial shock waves onto and through the skin. This energy penetrates deep down in order to improve blood circulation and reduce the size of the underlying fat cells. It also provides a boost in collagen production and works to tighten the skin.

Sessions are easy and painless, and there’s no need for any injections or anesthesia. The Z Wave device can provide noticeable results after just one session, but multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results. There’s no downtime following Z-Wave treatments so you can have smoother, firmer skin without skipping a beat.

Staying Cellulite-Free

Now that you’re finally free from annoying cellulite, there are steps you can take to stay that way. Keeping hydrated—by drinking water and by eating plenty of foods that are high in water content—can help your body maintain strong and supple connective tissues, and could even lend to weight loss. It’s also important to be active and to exercise regularly as this can have a positive impact on the formation of cellulite. You can also give your skin extra support with topical products. Studies have shown that products containing retinol may temporarily remedy the appearance of cellulite by promoting thicker skin that can work to camouflage those dimples and indentations.
