Despite the discipline of a healthy diet and regular exercise the bodies cellular metabolism slows down, resulting in unsightly fatty pockets and cellulite areas, these stubborn areas can be disheartening, especially to those who train hard in the gym. Our aim is not only to advise healthy eating and regular exercise but an Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment plan to permanently remove those saddlebags, love handles and donuts that have been to hard to remove in the past.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is a totally non-surgical body sculpting treatment, which is also known as non-surgical lipo. It quickly and effectively eliminates unsightly fat deposits in both men and women. This treatment is clinically proven to reduce fat thickness and body circumference (waist line, thighs, love handles etc.) and unlike all those "laser offers" this treatment is PERMANENT!
What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field creates bubbles in the liquid that surround the fat cells, which gradually grow, and implode. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.
What happens to the released fat?
After disruption and emulsification of the fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.
The fat is a solid substance, how can it be eliminated through the urine?
Because ultrasonic cavitation causes an emulsification of the fat, releasing the triglyceride fluid which is easy to eliminate through the urine and the lymphatic system.
What is the treatment like?
The cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment. It starts with circumference measurement of the target body area and continues with circular movements of the applicator over the treatment site.
The duration of treatment session normally takes around 30 - 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer.
What will I feel during the treatment?
Most of the clients consider the treatment quite relaxing and comfortable. There may be, however, a slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside your body, but it poses no harm and disappears as soon as you are not in contact with the applicator.
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe treatment?
Yes, the therapist will complete a medical questionnaire with you to make sure it is safe for you to undergo this kind of treatment. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative course) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions. But remember always to carefully choose the center where you undergo it.
How long has Ultrasonic Cavitation been around?
Cavitation in aesthetics was introduced for the first time in Milan in 2005. However, the phenomenon called cavitation has been around since the 60s.
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation painful?
No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but does not cause pain. The heat caused by the equipment is perfectly tolerable.
Can these treatments be performed on male and females?
Yes, of course.
Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?
All those areas with localized fat and or cellulite: thighs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body although we cannot treat the female breast.
Is it possible to lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is NOT a method to lose weight but rather to shape the body. The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won't go away with diet and exercise.
Are the results of Ultrasonic Cavitation similar to those of liposuction?
Yes, because it destroys fat cells permanently without damaging any vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.
How does Ultrasonic Cavitation differ to Non-invasive Laser Lipo type treatments?
A major difference between Ultrasonic Cavitation and Laser Lipo is that the Laser Lipo simply shrinks the fat cell. With the use of Ultrasonic Cavitation we safely damage and remove the fat cells through the body's natural metabolic process. Our clients are less likely to put the weight back on as the body has to make a new fat cell to replace the one that was removed.
Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Ultrasonic Cavitation?
We recommend a low calorie diet and to drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after the session. After the session it is recomended that you do a small amount of cardio (brisk walk/jog) for about half an hour. Drinking water and half an hour of cardio is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.
How much time should elapse between sessions?
The body eliminates the fat of a session in 72 hours, and because the treatments can tax the liver and kidneys, we recommend no more than 2 treatments per week with a minimal interval of 72 hours between sessions.
How many sessions are usually needed?
Between 8 and 12 sessions, however, you will be able to appreciate the results from the third session.

Contagious or infectious diseases and skin diseases Liver disease
