Ultrasonic Cavitation: The Latest in Body Contouring Technology
In keeping with the increase in demand for nonsurgical alternatives to body contouring, many new body sculpting options are now available to the consumer. Ultrasonic cavitation, being one of those new technologies, is a virtually painless, non-surgical body contouring technique that is performed as an alternative to liposuction. The procedure requires multiple treatments where a specialist targets problem areas with low-frequency ultrasound waves. Here we will go more into how ultrasonic cavitation works and what you can expect from each treatment.
ULTRASONIC CAVITATION FOR CELLULITE
Ultrasonic Cavitation is the latest innovation in fat removal technology that does not involve medical intervention or surgery. Ultrasonic cavitation RF technology is based on a medical breakthrough that uses bio-cavitational ultrasonic waves and radio frequency energy, to selectively break down fat cells and cellulite without affecting neighboring organs and cells. Immediately after the treatment, your body clears away the disrupted fat cells, mainly through the liver.
The most appropriate parts of the body for Ultrasound Cavitation are thighs, abdomen, hips, buttock, and upper arm, i.e. areas of localized fat deposits. It cannot be applied to the head, neck, chest, back or over bony areas. In these areas, we are only able to use Radio Frequency skin tightening.
What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a minimally invasive treatment that uses ultrasonic waves to turn fat cells into free fatty acids which are easier for the body to eliminate. Using leading edge technology, it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be eliminated naturally through the body’s own natural filtration system through the urinary tract and lymphatic system.
What parts of the body can be treated?
The midsection (stomach area), upper arms, thighs, hips, buttocks, and chin can all be targeted with the low-frequency ultrasound waves used during ultrasonic cavitation. It is important to note, however, that ultrasonic cavitation is not a weight loss treatment. It is, instead, a device that uses radio frequency and ultrasound waves that disrupt fat cells that are then naturally eliminated through the urinary tract and lymphatic system.
What can I expect from my ultrasonic cavitation treatment?
For the best results, we recommend patients getting between 10 and 12 treatments with each treatment lasting one hour. You can expect to see results after your 5th treatment. Prior to each treatment it is highly advised to drink at least 3 pints (1.5L) of water, as well as immediately after your treatment, to help expel the fat cells that have been turned into liquid via the treatment. It is also advised that, as soon after your treatment as possible, that you partake in high-cardio exercise to continue the natural expulsion of fat cells through the body’s own filtration systems.
What is the best frequency to use for ultrasonic cavitation?
There are many different frequencies you can use during ultrasonic cavitation. Here at Allure Aesthetic Center, we use 40kHz (kilohertz). We use 40 kHz instead of 70, 90, or even 120 because cavitation waves of frequency that range from 28-54 can properly penetrate the area directly beneath the dermis, giving the wave the perfect amount of frequency to crack the cell’s membrane.
Recommendations for Successful Results
Drink a minimum of 1.5L of water daily, especially the day before and on the treatment day
Bring a bottle of water with you to your treatment and continue to drink so that by the end of the treatment you can immediately expel the liquified fat cells created from the treatment
Do lymphatic drainage massage
Keep a balanced diet
After the treatment, exercise with at least a 30 minute brisk walk. High cardio exercises are recommended for the best results
Exercise or increase activity as much as possible before and after each treatment
Consider avoiding alcohol and caffeine, seafood, and spicy foods as they compete with your liver
After Ultrasonic Caviation treatment notes
Drink lots of water! This continues to assist in the body’s expulsion of fat cells
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables as they help to metabolize fat. Abstain from spicy food and seafood for a few days as they compete with your liver
Eat foods high in iron, such as red meat
Avoid high humidity and high temperature
Is the procedure painful?
No, the treatment is painless. A slight tingling or warm sensation may sometimes be felt, but it is not uncomfortable.
How long is a treatment session?
It may vary depending on the area being treated but a typical session will last between 30 to 60 minutes. This includes the preparation, treatment and post treatment procedures.
Does it work on Cellulite?
Yes, low frequency ultrasound (40kHz) works stunning on cellulite by focusing the cavitation effect on the superficial fat tissue. The 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.
What instant result can I expect?
Ultrasonic cavitation treatment will often have immediate results, which you can feel, touch and see. Some clients can experience between 1/4 to 3 inches of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after subsequent visits. More significant results will be noticed after the third treatment.
1 session $150
3 sessions $425
6 sessions $800
9 sessions $1100
12 sessions $1300
Pre-& Post Treatment Information
It is important to drink a minimum of 40 oz of water before your treatment. Liquid activates the lymphatic system and moisturizes the skin. Do not substitute carbonated beverages for water! The more you’re hydrated, the better results you will see. Do not eat fatty foods within a 24-hour period before or after your treatment. This allows your body to focus on the fat we are trying to remove instead of new fat introduced. While not necessary, you can maximize your results by exercising after the treatment. Sweat and high heart rate increase circulation allowing your body better to adjust with the newly released liquid from the fat cells.
