Ultrasound Cavitation

  • Ultrasound cavitation, is a cosmetic procedure that’s used to break apart fat deposits in your body. This body scuplting treatment claims to work as an effective, less invasive alternative to liposuction.
  • It’s another type of noninvasive body contouring method to reduce the appearance of fat on the body.
  • In this method, ultrasonic waves transform your fat cells into fatty acids.
  • Your body can then dispose of those fatty acids — they won’t stick around as fat cells do.
  • Ultrasound waves are sent deep into the layers of your skin, causing a disruptive vibration. Fat cells then break apart from each other and are dislodged from your dermal layers.
  • After a few days, the fat cells are absorbed by your lymphatic system and drained as waste from your body.
  • Typically, you can expect to see final results three months after your last session, but it depends on how effective your body’s lymphatic system is at flushing out the damaged cells. The excretion begins right away, and drinking plenty of water, eating well, and exercising regularly can all help to speed up the process.

What happens during my treatment?

Your therapist will position you on the treatment couch and apply ultrasound gel to the area to be treated. Using the cavitation device the practitioner will then firmly work the area in a massaging type movement to enable the ultrasonic waves to target the fat cells. This process will continue until the whole area has received the treatment.

How many body sculpting treatments will I need?

For the best results we recommend a course of 10-12 Ultrasound Cavitation treatments.

What are the contraindications with ultrasonic cavitation?

Individuals with acute or contagious disease, HIV, a history of cancer, kidney failure, liver failure, fatty liver, implant devices such as pacemakers or electrical prosthesis, epilepsy or MS should not undergo ultrasound cavitation non-surgical “liposuction”. Pregnancy and breast-feeding are also contraindications for this procedure. Anyone with active contagious skin conditions will not be allowed to undergo treatments. It is also best to wait three to six months after a surgical procedure in the target area.
