What Is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic Cavitation uses low-frequency ultrasound waves to reduce fatty deposits and smooth out cellulite in problematic areas of the body. It is a safe, non-surgical alternative to liposuction that is completely painless with no down time; either before or after treatment.
How Does It Work?
Cavitation uses low-frequency ultrasound to break up adipose tissue (or cellulite) in the body. The ultrasound penetrates approximately 2-4 millimeters below the skins surface where the vibration from the ultrasound waves pokes tiny holes in the adipose and liquefies it.
How Many Will I Need?
That depends on the area treated. You will notice results after the first session, however, optimal results are achieved between 4 and 6 visits per area. Treatments can be scheduled no sooner than 72 hours apart (or every 3 days). Maintenance is suggested every 3 months.
Where Does It Go?
Once the adipose tissue is liquefied, it is massaged into your lymphatic system which is responsible for removing toxins from your body. Your urinary & lymphatic systems will work togethyer to flush the toxins for up to 72 hours following your treatment.
What Can I Do To Prolong My Results?
Avoid steam rooms or saunas for 48 hours. Make healthy food choices and exercise at least 30 minutes every day. We ask that you refrain from alcohol for 48 hours after treatment and avoid caffeine the day of your treatment so that your body can focus on removing the adipose. Drink 60-80 ounces of water the day before, the day of and the day after your treatment.
How Long Will It Last?
The fat cells that the ultrasonic cavitation eliminates during your treatment are gone. Results you get from the cavitation are permanent! It is important to remember that your body has a natural propensity to rebuild fat. Just as when you change your diet and lose weight, or work out and lower your body fat; your results will only last as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
How Is It Different From Liposuction?
Liposuction is invasive, painful and requires anesthesia. There is no down time from ultrasonic cavitation. The process is relaxing and pain free!
What Are The Contraindications?
The procedure cannot be preformed if you are pregnant or nursing. You will need a doctor's release if you have any of the following: hypertension, diabetes, cancer, HPV, HIV, heart disease, epilepsy, thyroid disease, metal prosthesis, obesity, phlebitis, pacemaker, IUD, liver or kidney disease. You will need to reschedule your appointment if you are menstruating.
What Are The Side Effects?
There are minimal side effects. Treatment site redness and small blisters have been reported. These side effects resolve themselves within a few hours after treatment. When cavitation is performed on the abdomen, there is the possibility of slight cramping or spotting.
