What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a body shaping procedure for men and women designed to destroy fat cells in the subcutaneous epidermal layer thought ultrasonic sound waves. Ultrasonic Cavitation Uses leading edge technology that converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. When the treatment of ultrasonic cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective at eliminating liquids. Generally one ultrasonic cavitation treatment lasts 60 minutes. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat.
Our body sculpting treatments offer a painless solution for the reduction of stubborn fat on the body. Ultrasonic Body Sculpting is the wave of the future. Referred to as non-surgical liposuction or Cavitation, this treatment is absolutely painless “during and after”. The procedure permanently dissolves fat using ultrasonic sound waves instead of scalpels, suction, freezing or painful laser treatments.
Non-invasive cavitation is the process of disrupting subcutaneous fat cells with radio waves. These waves safely target only the fat cells and do not affect other cells in the body. The fat cells are slowly dissolved and turned into a liquid which is metabolized by the body, or eliminated in the urine. We combine our Ultrasonic therapies are combined with Micro-current treatments to tighten and tone skin after fat loss. Ultrasonic body sculpting is ideal for treating light to moderate fat under arms, stubborn back fat, abdominal fat, love handles, inner and outer thighs and buttocks.
During and after treatment, (unlike Thermage, CoolSculpting or laser assisted liposuction technologies)
Leaves the skin, vascular, nervous and muscular tissues unaltered (with no bruising).
Destroys only the fatty tissues, while leaving all other tissues intact.
Reduce the appearance of cellulite.
When the fatty cells die off, they are immediately absorbed into the blood stream and excreted in your urine within 72 hours of the procedure
There is zero recuperative time, other than following a few simple post procedural rules.
Most clients experience certain circumference reduction even after a single treatment, but further treatments are required for even more dramatic fat thickness and circumference reduction.
Before Appointment Care
Make the most of your treatment by eating healthy and exercising on the day of the treatment. It is essential that on the day of the treatment you eat only vegetables, salads and very lean protein (e.g. fish, chicken/turkey breast etc.) in order to burn the released fat and make the most of your treatment.
Any type of starch (including the so-called “good carbs” such as brown rice, brown bread, potatoes, pasta etc.), sugary food and drinks (such as cakes, croissants, muffins, coffee/tea with sugar or honey etc.), fruits (including fruit juices, carrot juice and smoothies), alcohol, and fat of any kind (including oils, nuts, seeds and cheese) are not allowed on the day of the treatment, to prevent the body from re-depositing excess fat back into the fat cells. Furthermore, vigorous exercise before or after the treatment is ideal for even more pronounced results.
• Drink at least 2 liters of water both before your treatment
• Do not drink ANY alcohol or caffeine the day of your appointment.
• Use Dry Skin Brushing daily to stimulate lymph movement
Questions & Answers
What is the Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation treatment like?
The procedure starts with circumference measurement of the target body area, applies the ultrasonic device directly to specific areas of the skin after a gel is applied, continues with circular movements of the applicator over the treatment site, for a Combo session a Radio Frequency hand piece is used which is slowly rotated over the targeted area, transmitting radio waves to the skin heating it 40 to 50 degrees Celsius without burning the skin surface. The heat causes contraction of the collagen fibers to immediately tighten the skin. Then finalized with another circumference measurement. The duration of treatment session normally takes around 15-20 minutes each depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer Results can sometimes be noticed after the first treatment with more improvement noticed within a few days. 6 - 10 sessions at 3 t0 7 days intervals are recommended in order to achieve an ideal result, but further treatments may be needed to attain your desired figure.
How does it feel during the Ultrasonic or RF treatment?
Most people feel the treatment is painless and comfortable. Some people may feel slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside the body, but causes no, harm and disappears as soon as the applicator is moved away from body. You may also experience warmth during the treatment. If on the slim chance it gets too warm you can request, immediately some extra ultrasound gel to be applied.
What can be treated with the Ultrasound Fat Cavitation system?
Fat & Cellulite reduction
Skin tightening and fat melting (combined with Radio Frequency)
What can be treated with Radio Frequency(RF)?
RF is a effective way to improve skin tightness and elasticity, reduce wrinkles and cellulite, boosting the overall condition on areas of the body such as the face, chin, upper arm, abdomen, thighs, bra line or buttocks.
Who can have Ultrasound and RF treatments?
People who are generally healthy are safe to have the treatment
People with cardiac and vascular diseases, diabetes, acute illness, comprised liver function, severe bleeding tendencies, pacemaker carriers and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid undergoing the procedure
Is Ultrasound Cavitation & RF painful?
Cavitation and RF is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable.
Is Ultrasound Cavitation & RF safe? Are there any side effects?
Ultra Cavitation is a safe, nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive ,no cutting, no scars and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment. Due to specific ultrasound parameters of energy levels ensure selective damage to fat cells only and do not interfere with any other organs. There is no report of side effects for these treatments. However some people may experience transient redness, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short-term effects that will disappear shortly.
What can one expect with the results?
The cavitation treatment yields immediate and long lasting results. Ultra cavitation is a very effective procedure that requires only 6-10 treatments consisting of 15-20 minutes each. Most of the clients experience noticeable circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
Which areas are suitable for the treatment?
Areas with localized fat such as thighs, abdomen, arms and buttocks where diet and exercise alone have not been able to get rid of are the most appropriate but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.
Can Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation lose weight?
Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, like the famous “love handles” "Mummy tummy" . Ultrasonic cavitation can be considered a deep fat blaster that reduces stubborn fat cells that cannot be removed with exercise and diet alone. But we feel that this treatment definitely helps with weight loss.
What is the difference between ultrasonic fat cavitation and liposuction?
The Ultrasonic Cavitation has the similar result as liposuction. It removes cellulite and excess fat. preventing this from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system. The procedure is painless and is very inexpensive compared to the thousands of dollars you could spend on liposuction.
How is the fat eliminated from the body?
The ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, it rupture fat cell membrane, thereby releasing its fat content, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through sweat gland, liver sausage circulation, lymphatic system which eventually eliminate through urine.
Do I need to follow any guidelines before or after undergoing ultrasound fat cavitation & RF?
Try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes tanning (natural or artificial). It would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however an established tan would be fine.
Do not have hot shower , bath or sauna right after the Ultrasound treatment. We recommend a low calorie diet with protein in each meal and drink at least a glass of warm water (not carbonated, sparkling water, pop, coffee) before and after the session. Drinking plenty of water and having exercise such as brisk walk, biking or other aerobic activities for at least 3 days after the treatment to stimulate the lymphatic activity as elimination of the fat continues through the Lymphatic System for 72hrs. Follow by a suitable exercise routine. Cavitation will be best performed under high hydration conditions, avoid taking any caffeine or diuretics 2 days before therapy. Drink a lot of water will help to improve your metabolism and increase urine output -- lipid metabolites release out of your body.
A lymph-draining massage is also encouraged to improve the circulation and lymphatic system, which helps to drain fluids.
For best results you should refrain from any alcohol consumption for 48 hours after the treatment. Alcohol consumption during this period may prevent your liver from removing the deactivated fat cells from your body (as the liver will assign priority to removing the alcohol from your blood).
Maintain an un-stressful life style also helps the body flush out the fat more efficiently.
How many times and how often should I have the treatments?
Ultrasound Cavitation: 6-10 sessions spaced 3 days apart for the first 3 sessions, then once a week.
Skin Tightening: 6-10 sessions spaced 3 days apart for the first 3 sessions, then once a week.
After the initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments consist of one session each month for 4 months followed by one treatment every 4 months
