Ultrasonic or ultrasound cavitation is the use of ultrasound technology to break down fat cells below the skin. It is a non-surgical method of reducing cellulite and localized fat. This procedure involves applying pressure on fat cells through ultrasonic vibration.
The broken-down fat cells go from the body to the liver where they are excreted as waste. This method of treatment is used along with other weight loss programs to help with getting rid of excessive fat. It is a preferred method to other invasive procedures of eliminating body fat. It is important to note that your weight could return if you consume a high-calorie diet.
Since the procedure is customized according to an individual's needs, it might take longer for some than others. However, the standard treatment should be completed in one to three sessions with two weeks between every session depending on the treatment. Each session is around 45 to 75 minutes. It takes about 6 to 12 weeks to see the results of ultrasonic cavitation treatment.
How does it work?
An ultrasound device similar to that used in pregnancy scans is applied to the targeted area, along with a specially designed cream. This device transmits concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy that target and destroy subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membrane. The fat is then dispersed into surrounding cells and recycled into proteins and glycerol.
What are the benefits of fat cavitation treatment?
Unlike liposuction (which can be a daunting and extreme option for many), cavitation is the perfect fat reduction treatment for those that do not want to take any excessive measures. It is safe, non-surgical, and requires no recovery time. It's also one of the only technologies available that can show you results as effective as those you expect from liposuction or surgery, provided you complete the recommended number of sessions (usually between 8-12).
Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens and lifts the skin, all without having to go under the knife. The treatment is non-invasive so it is ideal for those who either don’t want, or do not believe they are old enough for surgical procedures. Unlike other ‘non-surgical face-lift’ treatments on the market, radio frequency actually stimulates the skin’s own natural renewal of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter and younger looking skin. And the best thing is – Radio Frequency delivers great, visible results from the very first treatment. The treatment is suitable for everybody, especially those looking to target fine lines and wrinkles or excess skin.
Radio Frequency is a relaxing treatment that involves the application of a cosmetic gel and a warm wand passing over the skin in sweeping circular motions. The wand gently heats the lower levels of the skin to approximately 40°c; this tricks the brain into thinking there has been a potential injury and stimulates a healing response. This in turn causes increased collagen production and tightening of elastin fibers. The tightening of elastin fibers is instant meaning the skin appears tighter and lifted from the first treatment. The gentle heat also promotes fat cell reduction. A course of 6 treatments is recommended for optimum results. Ideally this should be 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks. After completion of your course it is recommended to have a maintenance session every 4-6 weeks. You will continue to see results for up to 3 months after the treatment course has ended. This is perfectly normal as it can take the collagen time to reproduce.
