Cavitation using the new ultra sound and radio frequency (FR) system:
Cavitationis a new innovative system for the treatment of localized fat or cellulite. This treatment uses ultrasound waves which are conducted through the skin, causing micro-bubbles which turn fat into a liquid substance which is then removed from the body using the lymphatic and urinary systems, in conjunction with radio frequency (RF) for skin tightening, allows this treatment countless benefits:
All skin types can be treated safely and effectively. Results are gradual, although improvements are visible after the first treatment with skin feeling smoother, firmer and tighter. An average reduction of two to seven centimeters is apparent in most people six to eight weeks after the final treatment.
What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitationis a relatively new clinical 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 the lymphatic drainage process helps speed up the results, as the body’ drainage system is very effective at eliminating liquids.
How does Ultrasound Cavitation work?
Your practitioner will go through a skin assessment with you before applying a specially designed handpiece to your skin. The handpiece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression- expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. Causing a quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles to gradually enlarge. The enlargement finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favour emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called “cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.
What is Bipolar Radiofrequency – RF?
Bipolar Radiofrequency (RF)energy is a new technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties, with any skin colour. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line and the neck. RF can also be 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 Radiofrequency 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.
Who is suitable for Ultrasound and Bipolar RF treatments?
Most people are safe to have the treatment. Your practitioner will be able to determine your suitability. People with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemaker carriers and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid undergoing the procedure, or contact your local GP if you are not sure.
Is ultrasound cavitation painful?
No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable.
Is ultrasound cavitation a safe treatment?
Yes, it is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.
Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?
All those areas with localised fat: thighs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.
Can you lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?
Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise and helps improve skin texture.
Are the results of ultrasonic cavitation similar to those of liposuction?
Yes, because it removes cellulite preventing this from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.
The fat is a solid substance, how can it be eliminated through the urine?
Because ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminated through the urinary and the lymphatic system.
Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing ultrasound cavitation?
We recommend a healthy diet and drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after the session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat. Regular exercise such as walking or other aerobic activities should also be maintained in order to help the system to naturally process the fat after the treatment.
How much time should elapse between sessions of ultrasound cavitation before another?
The body eliminates the fat of single a session in approximately 3 – 5 days, so we recommend an interval of around one week
between each session.
