Cellulite Treatment – With Radial Pulse Technology
Senara is pleased to introduce Z Wave Cellulite treatment to our non-invasive body contouring services. Whether used alone or in conjunction with CoolSculpting (fat freezing), Z Wave treatment is an effective treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite deposits on the buttocks, thighs, abdomen, and arms.
Z Wave uses Radial Pulse Technology (RPT) to smooth cellulite. Also known as “sound wave therapy,” treatment is:
- Quick and gentle
- No down time
- Visible results
The Z Wave is FDA cleared for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite. Typical patient treatment time is 3-4 minutes per body zone. Patients may notice visible results after only 2-3 sessions. You may also use the Z Wave as an adjunct in CoolSculpting treatments to enhance body contouring results.
How It Works
The Z Wave constitutes the latest development in the treatment of cellulite. It uses soft pulse technology to enhance patient comfort. Mild, consistent sound wave therapy is delivered to the treatment area over a series of treatment sessions.
The Z Wave unit transmits powerful sound waves onto and through the skin. This energy is delivered via an electromagnetic applicator, then spreads out radially. (Picture the gentle radial waves generated when dropping a pebble into a still pond.) This radial energy enhances the treatment effect to improve the tone, texture and appearance of the cellulite.
The body responds to the Z Wave Pro sound waves with increased metabolic activity in the form of lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation. The end result is an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

Facts About Cellulite
