Ultrasonic Cavitation works by breaking down deep stubborn local
fat tissues which are subsequently disposed of through the
lymphatic and urinary systems.
It is also effective in reducing cellulite, a condition which
affects most women over 20, whether slim or overweight. When
applied in conjunction with Radio Frequency (RF) and Negative

Benefits of Ultrasonic Cavitation:
* Volume reduction of tissues (fat blasting)
* Body shaping and contouring
* Skin tightening and toning
* Cellulite reduction
Before & Aftercare Advice
To ensure the best results with this treatment we suggest that
you follow the aftercare recommandations:
* Drink at least 2 liters of water before your treatment and

* You should not eat 2 hours before and 1 hour after
* Do not drink ANY alcohol or caffeine in the day of
treatment of 48hrs after.
* Use dry skin brushing daily to stimulate lymph movement
(your therapist will show you how to do this).

straight after treatment.
* Diet: Follow a fat free, low starch, low sugar diet for
* Exercise for at least 20 minutes after your treatment to

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe procedure?
Yes, it is a safe, comfortable, and non-invasive procedure
with virtually no side effects. It does not require anesthesia,
leaves no scars and does not require any post treatment. The
ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath
the skin only, and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves and
Is the procedure painful?
No, the treatment is painless. A slight tingling sensation
or buzzing in the ear may sometimes be felt during the
treatment. Some heat sensation may also be felt during treatment
but no pain. Any slight reddening of the skin which may
sometimes develop during or soon after treatment quickly
On which parts of the body is the treatment most
Thighs (saddle bags), Abdomen (love handles), Hips (flanks),
Buttock, Upper arm i.e. the areas of localized fat. However it
cannot be applied to the head, neck, chest, back and over bony
How long is a treatment session?
Treatment times may vary depending on the area being treated
but a typical session will last between 40 minutes to an hour.
This includes the preparation, treatment and post treatment
Does it work on Cellulite?
Yes, low frequency ultrasound (40kHz) generally works well
on cellulite by focusing the 'cavitation effect' on the
superficial fat tissue. Best results are obtained when the
ultrasound is applied in conjunction with the radio frequency'
(RF) treatment which helps to tighten and tone the skin.
Cellulite is the appearance of dimpled skin.
Where are fat cells stored?
Fat is stored primarily as triglycerides inside adipocytes
cells located between the muscles and skin. The numbers of fat
cells are the same regardless of a person's weight but the size
of the cells can vary greatly.
What instant result can I expect?
The ultrasonic cavitation treatment will often yield
immediate results which you can feel, touch and see and it can
be long lasting. Some clients can experience between 1 to 5 cm.
of circumference reduction after a single session with
increasing results after subsequent visits. However, more
significant results will be noticed after the second and third
What long term results can I expect with Ultrasonic
You can achieve 'volume reduction' of fatty tissues and
'toning of the body'. The results are gradual over a number of
weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. It is
not uncommon to achieve up to 10 cm reduction by the end of the
course of treatments. The results can be long lasting provided
you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. However it is
very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one
over-eats, consumes too much alcohol or doesn't exercise.
Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual's
different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism,
medication, and changes in hormones.
Can I lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is
it a weight loss procedure. Rather is a method for 'reshaping'
and 'toning’ the body. It is particularly intended to reduce
localised fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the
abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), that
won't easily go away by simple dieting and exercise.
Are there any side effects with this treatment?
There are virtually no side effects. However on rare
occasions there may be a slight possibility of mild side effects
such as transient redness, excessive thirst, or nausea
immediately after the treatment which is invariably resolved by
drinking water. These are all short-term effects that disappear
in a few hours.
What Guidelines should I follow pre-treatment and, post
Drink plenty of water. Drinking water is a necessary part of
the treatment to facilitate the elimination of the broken down
fat. Maintain a low calorie diet for a few days after the
treatment to ensure that the energy released by the treatment is
metabolized by the body. After the treatment patients are able
to return to their daily activities as usual.
What are the 'contraindications' with Ultrasonic
Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment is not for everybody. Even
though it is a safe and painless procedure, nevertheless there
are contraindications for using cavitation devices for treatment
of localized fat. Such contraindications will depend on the
individual's medical history. Thus people with kidney failure,
liver failure, heart disease, carrying a pacemaker, pregnancy,
lactation, etc. are not suitable candidates for the cavitation
Are the results of Ultrasonic Cavitation similar to
The ultrasonic cavitation can be considered as a treatment
alternative to surgical liposuction. Both treatments are
designed to reduce fatty tissues. However, Liposuction is
invasive while Ultrasonic Cavitation is non-invasive.
