How Can I Get Rid of Cellulite on my Thighs?

Most women experience cellulite during their lifetime. Although quite normal, if your cellulite has been bothering you, there are ways to make it less noticeable. While there are no surefire ways to eliminate cellulite’s dimple-like appearance, there are treatments that can help you feel more attractive in your own skin. New York Skin and Vein: now part of Schweiger Dermatology Group uses Z-Wave, the FDA-approved treatment that breaks up cellulite without surgery or needles.

What is Z-Wave?

Z-Wave is a non-invasive procedure that uses an acoustic percussive device to send shock waves (no electricity involved) to break up cellulite. This treatment is different from other devices because it is well-controlled and tailored to your needs.

How Does it Work?

Z-wave uses pulse technology to drive sound waves into your dimpled cellulite. This breaks up and smooths the cellulite so you can wear bathing suits and shorts.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Cellulite is usually seen on the thighs and buttocks and can be treated in one session. Treatments take less than 10 minutes per area, with the total treatment taking about 30 minutes.

Is There Downtime?

This pain-free, non-invasive procedure does not require anesthesia and you can return to your normal activities including the gym immediately. Z-wave is a safe alternative to surgical treatments and has no downtime or significant side effects.
