What is it?
Ultrasonic Cavitation is the latest revolution in fat removal technology that does NOT involve medical intervention or surgery.
The scientifically developed medical Ultrasonic RF technology is based on a medical breakthrough that uses bio-cavitational ultrasound waves and radio frequency energy, to selectively break down fat cells and cellulite without affecting neighboring organs and cells. Immediately after treatment, your body clear away the disrupted fat cells, mainly through the liver
How does it work?
The vibration of positive and negative alternation of sound waves produces a strong pressure to fat cell membranes. As the fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure, it will explode into a liquid content. After disruption of adipose cells (fat cells), the broken fat in the form of triglycerides is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food. A quantity of fat cells are destroyed and therefore reduced, and the body’s fat cell metabolism is improved. Destroying these fat cells removes the body’s environment for fat storage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the procedure painful?
No, the treatment is painless. A slight tingling and heat sensation may sometimes be felt during the treatment but this is not an uncomfortable feeling.
On which parts of the body is the treatment most beneficial?
Thighs (saddle bags), Abdomen (love handles), Hips (flanks), Buttock, Upper arm i.e. the areas of localised fat. However it cannot be applied to the head, neck, chest, back and over bony areas. In these areas, we are only capable of doing our Radio Frequency skin tightening.
By what other names are Ultrasonic Cavitation referred to?
Ultrasound Cavitation; Cavitation; Ultra Cavitation; Body Contouring; Body Sculpting
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe procedure?
Yes, The procedure is a safe, comfortable, and non-invasive procedure with virtually no side effects. It does not require anaesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require any post treatment. The ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath the skin, and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues.
How long is a treatment session?
Treatment times may vary depending on the area being treated but a typical session will last between thirty minutes to an hour. This includes the preparation, treatment and post treatment procedures.
Does it work on Cellulite?
Yes, low frequency ultrasound (40kHz) generally works well on cellulite by focusing the ‘cavitation effect’ on the superficial fat tissue. The best results are obtained when the ultrasound is applied in conjunction with the ‘radio frequency’ (RF) treatment which helps to tighten and tone the skin. This will then leave your skin smooth, tones and cellulite free!
What instant result can I expect?
The ultrasonic cavitation treatment will often have immediate results which you can feel, touch and see. Some clients can experience between 1/4 to 3 inches of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after subsequent visits. However, more significant results will be noticed after the second and third treatment.
What long term results can I expect with ultrasonic cavitation?
You can achieve volume reduction of fatty tissues and toning of the body. The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. It is not uncommon to achieve up to 3 inches of reduction by the end of the course of treatments. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones. Try to maintain a healthy lifestyle and you shouldn’t have any problems.
Can I lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Fat Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is it a weight loss procedure. Rather is a method for ‘reshaping’ and ‘toning’ the body. It is particularly intended to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), that won’t easily go away by simple dieting and exercise.
Are there any side effects with this treatment?
There are virtually no side effects. However on rare occasions there may be a slight possibility of mild side effects such as transient redness, excessive thirst, or nausea immediately after the treatment which is invariably resolved by drinking water. These are all short-term effects that generally disappear in a few hours.
What Guidelines should I follow pre-treatment and, post treatment?
Drink plenty of water. Drinking water is a necessary part of the treatment to facilitate the elimination of the broken down fat. Maintain a low calorie diet for a few days after the treatment to ensure that the energy released by the treatment is properly utilized and metabolized by the body. After the treatment, clients are able to return to their daily activities as usual.
How many sessions are required to achieve the desired result?
It all depends on how much fatty deposits we are aiming to eliminate, normally we recommend between 5-10 treatments. However you should begin to see significant ‘results’ from the third session onwards. The body takes about 7 to 10 days to eliminate the fat from each session therefore we recommend an interval of 1 week between treatment sessions.
What are the ‘contraindications’ with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation treatment is not for everybody. Even though it is a safe and painless procedure, nevertheless there are contraindications for using cavitation devices for treatment of localised fat. Such contraindications will depend on the individual’s medical history. Thus people with kidney failure, liver failure, heart disease, carrying a pacemaker, pregnancy, etc. are not suitable candidates for the cavitation treatment.
Are the results of ultrasonic cavitation similar to liposuction?
The ultrasonic cavitation can be considered as a treatment alternative to surgical liposuction. Both treatments are designed to reduce fatty tissues. However, Liposuction is ‘invasive’ while Ultrasonic Cavitation is non-invasive.
