Try and increase your heart rate by taking some exercise for the best results .Use our complimentary vibration platform to increase blood and lymphatic circulation.
Do not have a hot shower, bath or sauna right after the Ultrasound treatment.
A lymph-draining massage is also encouraged to improve the circulation and lymphatic system, which helps to drain fluids.
Physical stimulation can help with fluid movement, especially when the areas are near lymph nodes.
Self-massage on the area treated will be beneficial, for the fat cells that can possibly be stagnant.
For best results, you should refrain from any alcohol consumption for 48 hours after the treatment. Alcohol consumption during this time may put added stress on your liver because it's already working on removing the deactivated fat cells from your body
People who are generally healthy are safe to have the treatment.
It is not advisable for those who just tanned outside or went to a tanning bed. When you have a tan, there is a risk for your skin to be more sensitive due to the UV damage it has received due to tanning. It is possible for your skin to react negatively to the procedure because it is already sensitive. Note that spray tans and self-tans don’t cause UV damage.

Side Effects Of Ultrasonic Cavitation
Short Term Redness
In some cases, patients can experience skin redness due to the treatment procedure. The cause of this is varied and it doesn’t happen often. With this procedure, a gel substance is spread over the area of treatment to help the machine head glide smoothly over the skin.
Some may be irritated by it but most are not. Also, if the skin is already sensitive, it is more likely to produce this reaction.
Although redness can occur, it is not permanent. The skin usually goes back to normal after about 4-5 hours. There is no need to treat the area with any medication. You just need to give it time.
Another skin reaction that could happen would be mild bruising. Even if it doesn’t cause pain or damage to the skin, the ultrasonic energy can still disturb the epidermis. It is possible that the reaction to the disturbance is mild bruising.
Just like redness, this mild bruising is also temporary and typically goes away in a day or two.
There is also a possibility for skin sensitivity to be experienced. Patients can feel itchy around the area. There may also be a bit of swelling or little bumps.
However, this is also a temporary side effect. With time, this will go away on its own.
Some patients also report experiencing extreme thirst while some didn’t. With ultrasonic cavitation, you have to remember to keep yourself hydrated. Water is essential before and after the procedure because it helps the body to remove the toxins and fats released.
The reason why you might feel extremely thirsty is that your body needs water to flush out all the toxins and fat.
