Bodyworks - Z Combi (Fat-Freezing & Skin Tightening)
What is Zcombi?
Zcombi is a state-of-the-art body contouring system. It combines Zlipo and Zwave to give you a powerful and effective result. Zlipo works to help you reduce fat, while Zwave is a form of cellulite therapy.
At the beginning of the treatment, the applicator is placed on the treatment area and the cooling system is turned on. During the treatment, only the subcutaneous fat cells in the area being treated are affected by the procedure. After the treatment, the fat cells are eliminated by the body’s own natural processes over the following weeks. The best results can be observed within 8-12 weeks.
Zcombi has been shown to be effective, scientifically-proven to reduce fat in the target area by up to 30% in a single session.
Start of Cryo-Lipolysis
Applicator is placed on the treatment area and the cooling is started
The fat cells in the treatment area react to the cooling
Elimination of fat cells
After the treatment the fat cells are eliminated naturally
After 8-12 weeks the final result can be observed
How Does It Work?
When the Zcombi body contouring treatment begins, the machine is switched on, and a strong vacuum effect pulls the excess flab of the treatment area into the suction. The applicator is positioned on the treatment area and the cooling system is switched on.
Zlipo utilises the fat-freezing technology to cool down the target area to ‒10°C. The temperature is controlled strictly, and the surrounding tissue is not affected. The fat deposit is destroyed, but the surrounding nerves, tissue and the surface of the skin are not damaged. Over the following 10-12 weeks after the treatment, the body will remove the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system. The results will be noticed 3-5 weeks after the treatment.
Zwave is a unique form of treatment which uses radial shockwave therapy. It produces a mechanical pressure wave that radiates from the skin to the tissue. Zwave is a treatment for skin tightening, giving you smoother, firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
Who is Suitable for the Treatment?
Zcombi is a body contouring treatment suitable for candidates who have a BMI slightly above their ideal, practise a healthy lifestyle, who eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly, but have areas with stubborn fat that they can’t seem to get rid of. Meanwhile, Zwave, which utilises radial shockwave therapy, generates a mechanical pressure wave that radiates from the skin to tissue. It is an effective treatment to break down the fats faster and is reduces cellulite and tightens skin for a more youthful-looking and firmer.
Zcombi is suitable for contouring the belly, hips, waist, back, male chest fat, thighs (inside and outside), flabby arms, and buttocks.
Zcombi is not a weight loss treatment. It does not treat obesity, and it is not suitable for extremely obese people. At Prive, we combine both Z Lipo and Z Wave treatments to give you the optimum results you desire.
How many treatments required?
The number of treatments required will be determined after a complimentary body analysis with our consultants.
What kind of results can I expect and how long do the results last?
Usually the result will be visible within 3-4 months, whereas some of the patients see their result in 3 weeks after the treatment.
Before And After
HOW IS Z COMBI DIFFERENT FROM COOLSCULPTING?
- Their country of origin is different. CoolSculpting device is manufactured by Zeltiq and is made in the United States while Z Combi is made in Germany.
- Z Lipo has two handpieces that can be used simultaneously while CoolSculpting uses just one. The Z Lipo handpiece begins with a pulsed vacuum suctioning to further break down the fat cells before the freezing begins.
- Z Combi treatment at Prive Aesthetics combines both Z Lipo and Z Wave together to get you the results you desire. Studies carried out in 2013 have shown that a shockwave treatment directly after Cryo-Lipolysis and subsequent shockwave treatments once a week for four weeks can almost double the treatment effects with regard to fat reduction. The graph below shows the fat reduction in % over 8 weeks with/without shockwave treatment. Skin tightening effect can also be seen at the same time
- However, while both procedures effectively remove fat cells, neither of these stomach fat treatment is a solution for weight loss and the results will not be as immediate as those seen in traditional liposuction.
Safety & Side Effects
Zcombi is a non-invasive treatment to eliminate subcutaneous fat that incurs almost no downtime, as compared to surgical procedures such as liposuction. It is virtually pain-free. There might be some feeling of discomfort when the patient feels the suction of the applicators at the beginning of the treatment, but this will last only for a few minutes. A special gel pad is placed over the treatment area during the procedure to avoid damage to the skin.
Many patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately after this treatment. Post treatment, there might be some redness, tenderness or soreness at the treatment areas, but these symptoms will disappear within a few days.
