What is Ultrasonic Cavitation & Radio Frequency Body Contouring?

Ultrasonic Cavitation also known as Ultrasound Liposuction and Ultra Cavitation is a new, non-surgical fat removal procedure. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck or liposuction, in ultrasonic cavitation there are no knives, no anaesthesia and no surgery. The procedure is very popular in Europe and has quickly spread across the globe

This treatment uses two types of technology-

Ultrasound Technology

This destroys intractable fat cells, using low frequency sound waves without causing damage to any other tissues or organs. Once the fat cell membrane (adipose tissue) is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body.

Radio Frequency Technology

To lift and tighten the skin. The frequency penetrates the epidermis and heats the dermis. In response the collagen, fibres begin contracting and remodelling, effectively thickening and leading to immediate results. Additional collagen fibres synthesis occurs due to the healing process of the skin, induced by the heat. Over time this will continue, gradually improving the quality of your skin and a decrease in deep wrinkles.
With literally no after care or downtime, body contouring treatments are gradually replacing tummy tucks and liposuction.
What areas can be treated?

Upper and Lower Abdomen, Hips, Love Handles/Flanks, Inner and Outer Thighs, Upper Arms/Bingo Wings, Bra and Backs Rolls, Buttocks, Baby Bulges and can also be used on areas as small as the chins and knees. This treatment can be used to reduce “man boobs” but cannot be used to treat female breast tissue.

Do I have to do anything before my treatment?
A consultation is always needed as this will give us a chance to assess your requirements and will help us to understand what results you are looking for so we can find the perfect solution for you.
On the day of your treatment do not consume any alcohol, fizzy drinks or caffeine. Avoid heavy meals immediately before and after treatment. We recommend drinking 6-8 glasses of water per day during your course of cavitation treatments.
How long is the treatment & does it hurt?
Each session is around 1 Hour. Treating multiple areas is not advisable as the body has to work hard to remove the excess fat that is now passing through the Lymphatic system to the liver and may also not be effective. Follow the rule, of one area, one treatment every 72 hours and you will see rapid results. 
Most clients found the treatment to be very comfortable and trouble-free. Some clients experience warmth during the treatment and a small amount of noise discomfort, but there is no pain. 
NB This treatment is not suitable if you are on your period as Ultrasound increases blood flow and you would feel very uncomfortable. 
What are the benefits Ultrasonic Cavitation & Radio Frequency Body Contouring?

  • Results Can Be Seen After Just One Treatment. 
When Are Results Visible?

There are 2 parts to this treatment-

Ultrasonic Cavitation

This type of therapy targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membranes through a series of microscopic implosions. Clients experience a reduction of several cm in circumference after the first treatment.

Radio Frequency

Controlled collagen heating produces immediate collagen contraction, so some results will be seen immediately post treatment. The subsequent repair and remodelling of this deep collagen produces continuing effect over the next 3- 6 months.

How Many Treatments will I need?

The number of sessions depends on the clients age and skin condition. While you will see immediate results in the first session, it maybe necessary to have between 3 and 12 sessions for optimum results. Clients who go through a series of treatments will see an improvement each time a treatment is performed.

How Long Do Results Last?

To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy low calorie diet and exercise regularly. It is also important to drink 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is key component to eliminating the fat.
