ULTRASOUND CAVITATION/RADIO FREQUENCY
WHAT IS ULTRASOUND CAVITATION & RF?
Ultrasonic Cavitation also known as Ultrasound Liposuction and Ultra Cavitation is a non-surgical fat removal procedure that uses scientifically proven non-invasive technology to break down unwanted fat whilst the radio frequency is a non-invasive heat treatment that helps tighten, contour and refine deeper lines of the skin over the face and body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This treatment uses two types of technology:
Ultrasound uses low-frequency sound waves to heat and vibrate the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface causing “bubbles” to implode against fat tissue, which eventually causes the fat cells to liquify and release their contents to be eliminated safely by the bodies lymphatic system.
Radio Frequency Technology uses advanced technology that safely heats the deep layers of the skin causing collagen elastin to contract and remodel leaving skin more lifted & tight.
Vacuum Therapy uses suction to stimulate stagnant overloaded lymphatic systems. This helps release trapped toxins and excess fluids in the body. Vacuum therapy also helps with precise tissue release to improve the appearance of cellulite.
AREAS THAT CAN BE TREATED:
Inner and Outer Thighs
Upper Arms/Bat wings
Bra area/Upper Back
DOES IT HURT?
Most clients find the treatment to be very comfortable and trouble-free. Some clients experience warmth during the treatment and a small amount of noise discomfort, but there is no pain. Vacuum Therapy can be a little more uncomfortable, it is important that you tell your technician if you feel that the suction is intolerable so that they can adjust the settings to your comfort level.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
Each session is around 40 minutes. Treating multiple areas is not advisable as the body has to work hard to remove the excess fat that is now passing through the Lymphatic system to the liver. Follow the rule, of one area, one treatment every 72 hours and you will see rapid results.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Clients can expect to experience a reduction of several cm in circumference after the first treatment following Cavitation. Following RF some results will be seen immediately post treatment however the subsequent repair and remodeling of this deep collagen produces continuing effects over the next 3- 6 months.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of sessions depends on a patient’s age and skin condition. While you will see immediate results in the first session, it maybe necessary to have between 6-8 sessions for optimum results. Patients who go through a series of treatments will see an improvement each time the treatment is performed.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy low calorie diet and exercise regularly. It is also important to drink 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is key component to eliminating the fat.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR ULTRASOUND CAVITATION & RF SKIN TIGHTENING?
Unfortunately treatment isn't suitable for everyone. Please check that your BMI falls in the treatable range and should be no more than 30. Significant obesity is outside the treatment range for the contouring and styling effects of ultrasonic liposuction. Also some medical conditions and drugs will make some patients unsuitable to benefit from treatments.
RED LIGHT THERAPY ADD ON ADVANTAGE
To obtain ultimate results, it is highly recommended that you also enjoy a 20 minute Lumiere Redlight session immediately following the treatment to speed the process of fat & waste excretion and skin tightening. These combined treatments will dramatically intensify the final result. You will also be required to drink 1.5 – 2 liters of water each day for efficient waste removal & you are encouraged do at least 30 minutes of exercise.
