What We Do
Ultrasound Cavitation is a non-surgical technology that works to reduce stubborn areas of fat and cellulite. It sculpts and reshapes your silhouette and is sometimes referred to as body contouring. Low frequency sound waves are applied to the treatment area to target and disrupt fat cells by breaking down and converting the fatty tissue into liquid, allowing fatty acids to be dispersed and processed out through the body’s lymphatic system – your body’s natural filtration system. Cavitation is designed to treat only the targeted fatty areas and not affect the surrounding tissue.
Your fully trained clinician will apply a specially designed hand-piece to your skin in circular motions. The hand-piece transmits low level ultrasonic waves: compression and expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This causes micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that slowly enlarge. The micro bubbles then start to collide and implode, resulting in emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this outcome is called “cavitation”).
What are the benefits?
Ultrasound Cavitation is excellent for treating all the most common areas of stubborn fat such as the abdomen, bra line, buttocks, thighs, ‘love handles’ and upper arms. It’s also highly effective in reducing cellulite and smoothing out problem areas such as the buttocks and thighs.
Ultrasound Cavitation is a nonsurgical procedure without anaesthesia, it is non-invasive (it leaves no scars) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment. Most clients describe the treatment as painless and comfortable. Ultrasound Cavitation removes cellulite preventing it from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system – outcomes are therefore similar to liposuction without the anaesthetic or invasiveness.
Ultrasound Cavitation and RF Skin Tightening work well together to reduce fat and tighten loosened skin in large areas such as thighs, upper arms and the abdomen.
How many treatments will I need?
Your clinician will carefully evaluate your specific treatment area and size, and discuss with you during the pre-treatment consultation, as this will determine the specific number of treatments you will need. You may need anywhere between 6 to 10 treatments for optimum results. You’ll start to feel the effects after the very first treatment and by the third treatment you should begin to see real improvements take place.
The body eliminates the fat of single Ultrasound Cavitation treatment session in approximately 3 – 5 days, so we recommend an interval of around one week between each session.
We recommend a low-calorie diet and drink plenty of water before and after the treatment session, this greatly helps with the natural process of the body to eliminate the fatty acids.
Some clients may see redness in the treatment area but this will pass after a few hours. For best results in Ultrasound Cavitation, we recommend you undertake 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise following treatment to encourage lymphatic drainage
