Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency body contouring
Price is per session for one area (e.g. stomach, inner thighs, love handles, buttocks, and upper arms (‘bingo wings’); at least 4-8 sessions are required, min. 72 hours apart.
Ultrasonic Cavitation, commonly referred to as ‘non-surgical liposuction’ or ‘cavi lipo’ is not a weight loss treatment, but it is an FDA-approved, non-invasive sculpting, firming, reshaping and toning treatment effective on areas of fat that prove difficult to lose through diet or exercise and also good at improving cellulite appearance.
Because it reduces fat deposits, clients may experience some loss in weight but ultrasonic cavitation itself is not a weight loss treatment. The main aim of the treatment is to reduce adiopose fat and cellulite which will improve shape and contour and reduce circumference on the treated area.
Ultrasonic cavitation uses low-frequency ultrasonic waves and radio frequency to help sculpt and tone specific areas of the body where clients are aiming to reduce the appearance of fat; ultrasonic waves penetrate the skin and form bubbles near the fat deposits. When the bubbles burst, the fat deposits get broken up and transform their contents into free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are then moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while glycerol is used as energy.
A healthy balanced diet with regular exercise is advised before, during and after treatment to ensure that the energy released by the treatment is metabolised by the body. Staying well hydrated is essential as it makes it easier for your body to get rid of the fatty acids that the fat cells turn into (some of the fatty acids are excreted through urine which is why drinking adequate water throughout the day is essential). If you do not drink adequate water before and after treatment it will be harder for your system to excrete.
This treatment includes application of ultrasound gel on the area to be treated, followed by ultrasound waves and radio frequency. A slight humming or buzzing can be heard during treatment and you will feel a soothing heat plus possibly a little ‘blushing’ or reddening of skin may be experienced in the targeted area but it is pain-free. Many people compare the sensation to how your body feels after a workout although you will be lying down and relaxing during treatment.
A minimum of 6 sessions are recommended, min, 72 hours apart. Clients can expect to see volume reduction of fatty tissues and toning of the body gradually as their body clears the broken-down fatty tissues and results can continue to improve for several weeks following the last treatment session. Just like weight supplements, no 2 people will have the same experience. Results will differ from one individual to another depending upon body metabolism, tissue structure, targeted area, age and hormonal variations. How many sessions you need will depend upon your body’s response to the procedure and the number of fat cells destroyed.
A great time to start a course of treatment would be prior to a holiday to get your body beach-ready!
Before Treatment and Aftercare: To ensure the best results with this treatment, it is recommended that you:
drink an adequate amount of water before and following your treatment (little and often, not large quantities in one go)
Avoid fatty foods, eat a healthy, balanced diet with nutrient-rich foods and exercise regularly to help tighten skin and lose any extra weight (exercise will help your body process the excess triglycerides and fatty substances released during the procedure).
avoid alcohol and tanning; too much alcohol will increase calorie consumption, provide no nutritional benefit and limit liver function needed to process these substances; tanning can make your skin particularly sensitive to the ultrasonic waves used in the treatment
Further treatment: 6-10 sessions are recommended, spaced 3 days apart for the first 3 sessions, then once a week. After the initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments of one session each month for 4 months are recommended followed by one treatment every 4 months.
A ringing sound may be heard during treatment.
Unsuitable for use during pregnancy, people with: epilepsy, cancer, operations that have not fully healed, those with heart disease/pacemaker, kidney (gall-stone) disease, implants (metal or gel), urinary incontinence and hypersensitivity.
