My Experience Undergoing Zimmer Z Lipo & Z WavePro @ TDOX Clinic, Damansara Uptown
Fats BEGONE! Sometimes we wonder why our love handles can never go off, even after a lot of effort has been put in to make it disappear. Recently I attended the launch of Zimmer second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis. If you haven't read that article yet, fret not, it's linked here (Zimmer Aesthetics Brings Us Second Gen Cryo Lipolysis). A couple of weeks back, I took the opportunity to try out Zimmer Z Lipo & Z WavePro @ TDOX Clinic, Damansara Uptown, for a slimmer me!

What is the second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis?
Utilizing German-engineered technology, the second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis combines Z Lipo (Cryo-Lipolysis) with Z WavePro (US FDA-approved Shockwave). From the original experts of cold therapy, Zimmer’s products ensure shorter treatment durations and faster results for everyone.

The machines from Zimmer that will freeze my fats away
For those who would rather achieve their body goals the natural way, the second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis promises to aid them in attaining their dream figure. Cryo-Lipolysis is a fat-freezing procedure which is considered an effective method for reducing fat that causes slight discomfort and no known severe side effects. When this technology is applied on selected patients and combined appropriately with other treatments, one can obtain a higher level of patient satisfaction.
The Procedure (Zimmer Z Lipo)
After consultation with Dr Ean Chan, I was ushered to my treatment room at TDOX Clinic, to have my body measurements taken. After that, it's Zimmer all the way. I was to undergo Z Lipo treatment on my love handles, on both side, and the subsequent Z Wavepro immediately after the freeze, for better effects. Just before starting, a special (and rather cold) gel pad is placed on my treatment area. This I was told is to avoid the top layer of the skin to suffer cold burns.

From then on, it will be a sensation of squeezing (which for the first 5 or so was rather painful). I was told the machine squeezes and sucks your treatment area to block off the blood circulation there, to ensure when it starts to freeze, blood from other parts of your body does not gush there.

Immediately after that the Zimmer machines start to do its magic. We entered Phase 2, where the applicators cool down the treatment area to -10 degrees for the next 52 minutes. It was an experience in itself, as I have never done cold sculpture treatments before. Numb and cold, the room's light is then dimmed, and for the next hour I just laid there.
|Towards getting slimmer love handles|
Not only can you target your love handles, there are numerous body parts which this treatment can be applied on, namely the belly, buttocks, arms and thighs. I took the liberty to embed a video showing how the Zimmer Z Lipo & Z WavePro works. Watch it below.
An award-winning product of the year in 2016, Z Lipo is an extremely versatile device that comes with three different applicators (small, medium and large) which are optimised to fit different body shapes and sizes. It targets fat deposits and chills them down in a controlled manner over a prolonged period, leading to the destruction of fat cells. Dead fat cells will be removed naturally through the lymphatic system which takes about 10 to 12 weeks.
Zimmer Z WavePro

Studies carried out in 2013 have shown that a shockwave treatment directly after Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Z Lipo and subsequent shockwave treatments once a week for four weeks can almost double the treatment effects in regards to fat reduction. By combining Z Lipo and Z WavePro together using the technology of Cryo-Lipolysis and radial shockwave, the results of fat reduction are significant

This non-invasive treatment targets only fat cells and eliminates them permanently, with each 60-minute session, and it is safe and suitable for treating any targeted area optimally. The use of pulsating suction increases the positive effect on lymphatic drainage and metabolism, and the intensity can be set to one of ten different levels that can even be adjusted during treatment.
