What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology, it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system through the urinary tract and lymphatic system. This is a more permanent form of weight loss because it destroys the fat cells it targets.
These procedures are being compared to liposuction but without any surgical procedures. Ultrasound Cavitation is the most advanced and effective non-invasive European method for eliminating stubborn cellulite and fat and in 2012 it has finally been approved by the FDA. Because of these characteristics, aesthetic experts have named it “Natural Liposuction”. Ultrasonic Cavitation is the fastest non-surgical type of liposuction which is growing rapidly worldwide. It uses low frequency sound waves that deplete stubborn fat cells under the skin.
What are Ultrasound Waves:
We measure sound by the times is vibrates per second. This is referred to as frequency, which is represented in Hertz (Hz). Humans can hear from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz or 20 KHz. We are unable to hear anything above or below these levels, therefore sound waves with frequencies above 20,000 Hz we call Ultrasonic. A Megahertz (MHz) is 1,000,000 hertz. Usually an Ultrasonic frequency of 1 to 5MHz is used for various medical treatments. It is highly penetrative and directional.
The ultrasound waves are conducted through the skin. They directly penetrate into the fat tissue and vibrations of ion (positive and negative alternation of sound waves) producing a strong wave of pressure to the fat cell membranes. Usually a fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure, and will implode into liquid content. They then break up into small pieces causing micro-bubbles which turn fat into a liquid substance (this phenomena is called “Cavitation”). The liquid is then eliminated from the body using the normal channels of the body’s metabolism, lymphatic and urinary system. When you work out, you have to wait at least half an hour for the Cavitation to occur. With Ultrasound, it is reached from the first minute of treatment.
This Revolutionary Ultrasonic Cavitation technology concentrates sonic energy to be directed only at localized treatment areas, and is thus capable of selectively disrupting the subcutaneous fat cells through thousands of microscopic implosions impacting the fat cell membranes. After breakdown of fat cell membrane, the fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system used for new energy generation whereas the insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid. The released fat is then eliminated from the liver through the lymphatic system and by the normal metabolic and physiological processes, leaving the body through sweat and urine over several days.
The Ultrasonic device uses a specialized transducer that emits regulated Ultrasonic sound beams that deliver real-time acoustic waves into patients. Ultrasound mufti-directional waves, guarantee the wave lengths and energy claims will only affect and target fatty areas. Only adipose (fat) tissues should be susceptible to this configuration and non-adipose tissues should remain safe and negligibly affected. The device has internal controls to target the Ultrasonic waves at the patient’s fat cells.
What is -Radio frequency? (RF)
Bipolar Radio frequency (RF) energy is technology for non-surgical tightening of the sagging skin. RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity. RF is often used in conjunction with ultrasound Cavitation to aid in further fat breakdown and also to tighten the skin in the same area the Cavitation treatment has taken place.
How does Bipolar Radio frequency work – RF?The hand piece is slowly rotated over the target area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, heating the dermis to between 40 & 50 degrees Celsius without burning the skin surface. Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibers, to immediately tighten the skin. New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated. This tightening effect is delayed and may take from 3-6 months to be visible. RF will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance
Who would benefit from Ultrasound Cavitation?
This treatment is best suited for the average to moderately overweight person who has a healthy lifestyle and exercises regularly. We want people to know exactly what to expect from an Ultrasonic Cavitation session. Let us be clear this is not a miracle device that will strip away huge layers of built up fat in a single session. Ultrasonic Cavitation is NOT for OBESE PEOPLE; and it is not practical or economical to use it as such. Instead, it is for those who have isolated areas of extra fat that are not helped by diet and exercise. But it is perfect for people who has no desire for surgery, and are looking for modest reductions in key problem areas.
If you’re a man or woman who can’t eliminate those stubborn bulges through healthy exercise and diet, and don’t want to undergo surgery (liposuction), then this non-surgical fat reduction technique may be for you.
Areas targeted for Ultrasound Cavitation:
Abdomen Flanks (“love handles”), Lower Back (“bra rolls”), Thighs (“saddle bags”), Buttocks, Upper Arm, Inner knees, and Male Breasts & Stomach, Cellulite and Contouring.
Recommendations for Successful Results
Drink at least 2.0 litres of water daily, especially the day before and on the treatment day.
Bring a water bottle with you and drink ample amounts (1 litre before and 1 litre after) each treatment. The treatment makes you thirsty.
Do lymph drainage massage on the Aquamassage.
Keep a balanced diet.
After the treatment, exercise with at least a 30 minute brisk walk.
Exercise/Increase Activity as much as possible before and after the treatment – If you do not currently exercise, start with 15 minutes of fast walking per day and increase it by 10 minutes per day. Exercise makes your lymphatic system function better.
Consider avoiding alcohol and caffeine, seafood and spicy foods, which compete with your liver.
What Results Can I Expect from my Treatment, and How Soon Will I See My Results?
Results can sometimes be noticed after the first treatment with more improvement noticed within a few days. In our experience with Ultrasonic fat Cavitation, we have found we can safely remove enough fat from a concentrated area, that it can easily be marked by using a tape measure.
You can expect either a mild, moderate or dramatic centimetre loss. A series of measurements are made to the patient at the beginning and the end of the session, to monitor the progress of the treatment. Our clients lose between 2 and 28 centimetres per treatments. Although we believe fat Cavitation is a more permanent form of weight loss (because we destroy the cells in which the fat reside), we still encourage our clients to eat healthily and exercise regularly. This, in conjunction with Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation should see you looking slimmer and feeling great!
The Advantages of Ultrasound Cavitation
Non invasive treatment targeting only the fat cells and them breaking them down without pain
Non-surgical and no side-effects with noticeable change after several treatments
No need for hospitalization nor anaesthesia
No scars nor long term marking of the skin
It is completely safe for your organs & surrounding systems
Elimination of the fat through a natural process
Conveniently short; you are able to return to the normal life right after
Permanent and affordable
After treatment notes:
Abstain from spicy food and seafood for a few days after treatment. Fresh fruit and vegetables will help metabolize the fat.
Wash your skin with cool water after treatment. Avoid high temperature and high humidity.
Drink a lot of water and eat food containing iron, such as red meat.
DO NOT start this treatment under the following circumstances: During menstruation (do not apply to abdomen) , pregnant, high or unbalanced cholesterol, any chronic diseases, immune diseases, pacemakers, autoimmune diseases, HIV or AIDS, cancer in any form at any time, severe high blood pressure or circulation problems(Aquamassage would assist it that), liver or kidney disease, severe arthritis or you are under the age of 18.
Ultrasonic Cavitation aims help you to reshape your body and get your confidence back. Exercise doesn’t let us spot reduce, but with this revolutionary new technology we can. Our customers have been thrilled with their results and you will be too. Although remember, it is NOT a miracle treatment but can be for some.
