Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to the launching event of second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Aesthetics, the latest body contouring technique with German-engineered technology that combines Z Lipo (Cyro-Lipolysis) with Z WavePro (US FDA-approved Shockwave) to achieve shorter treatment duration and faster result.
Receiving the European Union CE Mark approval in 2009 for non-invasive fat reduction, Cryo-Lipolysis is a fat-freezing procedure which is considered an effective method for reducing fat that causes slight discomfort and no known severe side effects, a non-surgical alternatives to liposuction that has become popular recently.
The combination of the second generation Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Z Lipo and Z WavePro are two innovative aesthetic machines designed for fat freezing and body contouring in cellulite treatment. The treatment is effective and safe with the emphasis of using harmless temperature levels to chill fat cells, ensuring that the surrounding tissues are unharmed.
An award-winning product of the year in 2016, Z Lipo is an extremely versatile device that comes with three different applicators (small, medium and large) which are optimised to fit different body shapes and sizes. It targets fat deposits and chills them down in a controlled manner over a prolonged period, leading to the destruction of fat cells. Dead fat cells will be removed naturally through the lymphatic system which takes about 10 to 12 weeks.
This non-invasive treatment targets only fat cells and eliminates them permanently, with each 60-minute session, and it is safe and suitable for treating any targeted area optimally. The use of pulsating suction increases the positive effect on lymphatic drainage and metabolism, and the intensity can be set to one of then different levels that can even be adjusted during treatment. To avoid damage to the skin, a special gel pad is placed on the treatment area during the process. Target areas consist of love handles, muffin tops, belly, buttocks, arms and thighs (inner and outer).
From a medical point of view, cellulite is not a serious condition, but it represents the most widespread and least tolerated aesthetic complaint among women. The US FDA-approved Z WavePro system uses radial shockwave to tighten the connective tissue which improves skin firmness, elasticity and collagen regeneration on the abdomen and upper arm, as well as cellulite on the legs and buttocks.
The high energy radial shockwaves consist of two different parts – positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component. The shockwave squeezes surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structures (cavitation), which re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves, thus ensuring a de-stabilisation of fat structures. The Z WavePro transmits the radial shockwaves directly and with high precision into the tissue, thanks to its 39mm applicator head. Using Radial Pulse Therapy, it delivers comfortable pulses consistently, replacing the need for manual painful vigorous massage in many cryogenic lipolysis protocols.
Studies carried out in 2013 have shown that a shockwave treatment directly after Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Z Lipo and subsequent shockwave treatments once a week for four weeks can almost double the treatment effects in regards to fat reduction. By combining Z Lipo and Z WavePro together using the technology of Cryo-Lipolysis and radial shockwave, the results of fat reduction are significant.
