High-energy radial shockwaves are scientifically proven to have a large impact on collagen structure and the skin connective tissue, improving blood circulation.


It stimulates collagen formation, while the skin becomes more elastic and its firmness is visible after only a few treatments.

Skin tightening and body contouring are becoming increasingly important in the modern practice. After several treatments for fat reduction, such as e.g. Cryolipolysis™, liposuction, or injection lipolysis, a more extensive application for skin tightening is urgently recommended and expected by the patient. Various studies and user observations have proven its effectiveness.


Thanks to the ZWave radial shockwave unit, it is also possible to significantly improve skin firmness, skin elasticity and collagen regeneration. Fat reduction, for example, after Cryolipolysis™ or injection lipolysis is also enhanced by using the ZWave.

— Frequently Asked Questions —

How does it works? ZWave & ZLipo – The Perfect Combination

Application Range
Skin tightening and body contouring
ZWave is used as a “stand-alone” application or in combination with other, mostly fat reduction methods. In the case of the “stand-alone” application, the focus is generally on improving the skin structure and connective tissue. Typical application areas are, e.g. cellulite, connective tissue weakness (upper arm, underbelly, etc.) and stretch marks (striae).


The high energy radial shockwaves consists of two different parts – positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component. The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules. The tensile wave leads to a collapse of the gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation), which re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves and thus ensure a destabilization of the fat structures.

Is this treatment painful?
No, quite the contrary. Many patients say this treatment feels similar to a relaxing massage.

How quickly are the changes visible?
Clear changes are visible after only 2-3 sessions. Your skin will get smoother and noticeable firmer. It usually takes 6 to 10 sessions to complete the treatment.

Are the results long-lasting?
Regular refresher sessions, exercise and a balanced nutrition, will ensure long-lasting results.
