Targeted muscle contractions through ZField Dual

ZField Dual is a CE-cleared body shaping procedure that uses electromagnetic pulses for muscle building. It helps stimulate involuntary contractions, which causes the muscle tissue and the inner structure to undergo deep remodeling. This results in muscle building and fat burning. 

Results: ZField Dual can help you build muscles without sweat and give you a more sculpted abdomen, as well as firmer and lifted buttocks. It can give your abs a 30-minute treatment equivalent to 20,000 or more sit-ups. Also, ZField Dual can help you get a six-pack without intense workouts. 

Recommended number of treatments: On average, about eight 30-minute treatments, over a four week period is required to see significant muscle layer increase and fat reduction in the treated area.

Good candidates: ZField Dual is a good option if you want to tone your muscles and sculpt your body. It is best performed on abdomens with less than 2 inches of pinch. A consultation with an aesthetic doctor will help you know more. 

Fat freezing through Z Lipo

Z Lipo targets and kills fat cells permanently through Cryolipolysis or fat freezing. It uses a handpiece that suctions in fat bulges and exposes them to cold temperatures. This then triggers apoptosis or natural cell death. The crystallized fat cells are then cleared through the lymphatic system and processed as waste in the liver. 

Results: The body metabolizes the treated fat cells over a period of 10 to 12 weeks. Some patients may see improvements weeks after the treatment, but it is recommended to wait for 8 to 12 weeks to see optimal results. 

Recommended number of treatments: On average, patients may require two to three sessions per area. This, however, will still depend on other factors like the amount of fat, your goals and expectations, and the way your body responds to the procedure.  

Good candidates: You can undergo the treatment if you are close to your ideal body weight, but still have pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is a good alternative if you are looking for nonsurgical fat reduction in certain areas of the body like belly, thighs, hips, and love handles.  

Skin firming through Z Wave

Z Wave is an acoustic shockwave treatment that delivers pulse vibrations or soundwaves into the tissue. The body responds to this with improved blood circulation and increased metabolic activity. It is designed to further break down soft tissues for better fat reduction and reduced cellulite appearance. 

Results: You may be able to see changes after four sessions, with optimal results seen after 8 to 12 treatments. It can be combined with Z Lipo or other fat freezing treatments for rapid fat reduction results. 

Recommended number of treatments: To see visible changes in cellulite reduction, you’ll need about 10 sessions within a period of three to four weeks. The number of sessions needed may also depend on the severity or grade of your cellulite. Studies also suggest that a combination of fat freezing and four weekly shockwave treatments leads to faster fat reduction.

Good candidates: Z Wave is a good option if you’re looking to improve the appearance of your cellulite and stretch marks. Ideal candidates include those at their healthy weight and desire to have firmer and more elastic skin. 

Keep in mind

While these procedures can reduce fat and contour your body, they are not weight loss treatments. Also, they can’t replace healthy lifestyle habits like regular exercise and balanced diet. It is a good idea to talk to an aesthetic doctor to manage your expectations and determine which treatments or combinations can achieve your goals.
