Benefits of Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation: • Volume reduction of tissues (fat blasting) • Body shaping and contouring • Skin tightening and toning • Cellulite reduction  

Is Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation a safe procedure? 

Yes, it is a safe, comfortable, and non-invasive procedure with virtually no side effects. It does not require anesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require any post treatment. The ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath the skin only, and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues.

No, the treatment is painless. A Slight tingling sensation or buzzing in the ear may sometimes be felt during the treatment. Some heat sensation may also be felt during treatment but no pain. Any slight reddening of the skin which may sometimes develop during or soon after treatment quickly disappears.

Thighs (Saddle bags), Abdomen (Love Handles), Hips (Flanks), Buttocks, upper arm i.e the areas of localized fat. However, it cannot be applied to the head, neck, chest, back and over bony areas. 

How long is a treatment session? 

Treatment times may vary depending on the area being treated but typical session will last between 40 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. Best results are obtained when the ultrasound is applied I conjunction with the radio frequency (RF) treatment which helps to tighten and tone the skin. Cellulite is the appearance of dimpled skin.  

 What instant result can I expect? 

The ultrasonic cavitation treatment will often yield immediate results which you can feel, touch and see and it can long lasting. Some clients can experience between 1 to 5cm of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after subsequent visits. However more significant results will be noticed after multiple treatments.


 

 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 10cm reduction by the end of the course of treatments. The results can be long lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. However, it is very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one over-eats, consumes too much alcohol or doesn’t exercise. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s different tissues structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones. 

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 invariable resolved by drinking water. These are all short-term effects that disappear in a few hours.

* 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 they energy released by the treatment is metabolized by the body.


* After the treatment patients can return to their daily activities as usual.
