The Z-wave has been nicknamed the Fat Cracker. The Z-wave uses acoustic energy shockwaves to infiltrate fatty tissue. It compliments all other treatments that are used in non-surgical body contouring. The Z-wave helps to diminish the lumpy bumpiness of cellulite and make the skin look smoother. Dr. McCoy feels that most non-surgical body contouring treatment plans should include the Z-wave treatment since it can improve the fat reduction and overall result by 50%.

How Z-wave Works
Using acoustic waves, the energy is sent into the fatty tissue of concern. The gentle treatment delivers enough energy to breakdown the fibrous “dimpling” that disrupts the skin contour. This helps overall texture and skin quality. Furthermore, the unique energy from acoustic waves works synergistically with other types of treatment (both heat and cold) that are used to contour fat and tighten skin. The magic really happens when the Z-wave is combined with other treatments to non-surgically contour the body. In addition, the Z-wave can be used as a standalone treatment.
What to expect
The sensation of the treatment is a minimal vibration/massage. The most annoying part of the treatment is the sound of the treatment: it sounds like a mini-jackhammer or woodpecker. It’s noisy, but patients don’t experience any discomfort at all. You can treat any area on the body. The protocol is four to six treatments, one week apart. There may be slight redness and minimal swelling after the treatment, but there is no discomfort. A complimentary consultation on the Z-wave at Contour Medical in Gilbert, Arizona, will help individualize your body contouring treatment plan with the Z-wave.
