ZWave™ in Plano, TX

Procedures ( View All )


Don’t give up when you have cellulite – fight back with ZWave, a one-of-a-kind, high energy radial-shockwave unit. Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, uses the treatment to target the structural causes of cellulite and body fat, which reside beneath the skin. This minimally invasive body contouring and cellulite reduction procedure does what diet and exercise can’t do by improving blood circulation and increasing collagen production for smoother-looking skin. The procedure is minimally invasive and usually takes around one hour. Results are long-lasting and beautiful.

Best Candidates

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if ZWave will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. The ideal candidates for ZWave:

  • Have unwanted cellulite or body fat on their abdomen, upper arms, legs, and/or buttocks
  • Have dieted and exercised without attaining the results they desire
  • Want long-lasting results
  • Are healthy
  • Are at or near their goal weight

What to Expect

ZWave is a noninvasive treatment that is pain-free and thus, does not require anesthesia. The simple process involves you lying down comfortably in our procedure room while a member of our team uses the ZWave handpiece over each treatment area. The technology can be used alone to improve the structure of the skin as well and connective tissues, or combined with other minimally invasive procedures, such as scar reduction, skin tightening, and laser treatment. The high energy radial-shockwaves emitted by ZWave work twofold by squeezing the tissue, breaking up the structure of the molecules, and by collapsing the gas bubbles in the fat structures beneath the skin. Most patients comment that the treatment feels like a relaxing massage.

Anticipated Results

Following your ZWave session (assuming you have not combined this treatment with other services), you can return to your daily activities without any concern for the treatment area. Your skin may be a tad red and warm to the touch following your treatment, but you should not experience any pain. During your consultation, a member of our team will recommend the number of treatments we believe will help you attain your aesthetic goals. This could be as few as six or as many as ten treatments. After your goal appearance has been achieved, we recommend touch-up sessions to maintain your results.
