A One-Two Fat Punch: CoolSculpting® and Z Wave

Posted On: May 2, 2016

We’re beyond excited to tell you about Z Wave, and here’s why: At the Bengtson Center, we’re always looking for ways to kick your results up a notch, no matter the procedure—but especially with fat-related treatments. That’s because the problem with fat is that fat is not the only problem. A bulge may be the most obvious sign of some unwanted weight, but your skin can also serve as evidence in the case against a slimmer you. Even if excess fat cells go away—through diet and exercise or a CoolSculpting® treatment in Michigan at the Bengtson Center—your skin can remain loose and flabby or feature stretch marks.

Are you going to sit there and take it? Or are you going to fight back? (We vote that you fight back, and we’re committed to joining that fight by using the most advanced technology and techniques that maximize results for each and every patient.)

You’re probably already familiar with what CoolSculpting® can do (noninvasively cool down fat cells to kick them out of the body permanently), especially when a session is followed by a massage to further improve results. A new addition to the Bengtson Center lineup, Z Wave, takes that idea up a notch by sending radial shockwaves through your tissue. CoolSculpting® knocks the fat out, and Z Wave sends it out of the ring.

Like CoolSculpting®, Z Wave is noninvasive, and it can be applied quickly and efficiently with a handheld device. The energy it delivers not only ensures that fat is sent packing, it also stimulates collagen production to tighten skin and help it cling to newer, slimmer contours. Its powerful punch can also improve the appearance of stretch marks, and even break down the connective fibers that cause cellulite.

Talk to Dr. Brad Bengtson’s team at Grand Rapids’ Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery to learn more about the relationship between Z Wave and CoolSculpting® in Michigan. Z Wave can be paired with the popular fat-reduction method or used as a standalone procedure. For more information, schedule a consultation online or call (616) 588-8880.
