FAQ Cavitation and RF
FAQ Cavitation and RF
How does Cavitaion or RF feel ?
What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation targets and destroys stubborn fat cells through a series of microscopic implosions
How does it work?
The ultrasonic-cavitation creates bubbles in the liquid that surround the fat cells, which gradually grow, and implode. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of ultrasonic cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.
What is Radio Frequency (RF)?
Radiofrequency is an anti-aging and skin tightening treatment. RF is about stimulating your own collagen production that penetrates the epidermis and heats the dermis at a comfortable temperature. This causes the collagen fibers to contract which pulls and tightens the skin creating immediate results and long-term effects.
Are the treatments painful?
Cavitation and RF is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the handpieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable.
Are there any side effects?
Ultra Cavitation is a safe, non-surgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive,no cutting, no scars and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment. Due to specific ultrasound parameters of energy levels ensure selective damage to fat cells only and do not interfere with any other organs. There is no report of side effects of these treatments. However, some people may experience transient redness, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short-term effects that will disappear shortly.
Also, during the treatment, you will hear ringing in the ears . High-frequency vibrations cause the fat cells to break, (cavitation.) The tinnitus we hear comes from the micro-vibration of fat cells. This phenomenon will always be accompanied by cavitation weight loss treatment. So it is normal we will hear the noise during the ultrasonic cavitation treatment.
Is the noise harmful?
The noise will not hurt our hearing. Some clients can hear the noise but some clients can not hear it, it differs from person to person. Ultrasound cavitation technology is widely used in the world.
Can I lose weight with Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasonic Cavitation primarily designed to reshape and sculpt the body and remove localized stubborn fat or cellulite. Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments work best when combined with a low fat and low carbohydrate diet and regular exercise. It may help you to lose weight however weight loss is not guaranteed.
How many treatments can I have?
We recommend you have a course of 6 or a maximum of 12 treatments before having a break of 4 weeks to allow your body to recover. You should allow minimum 72 hours between treatments.
3 days apart for the first 3 sessions, then once a week
After the initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments consist of one session each month for 4 months followed by one treatment every 4 months
Radio Frequency (RF):
If not combined with ultrasonic cavitation, generally once a week Further treatments may be needed to attain your desired figure.
How soon will I see results?
Most clients will have a noticeable reduction in their measurements after the very first treatment, some have recorded 3 inches, however, the average is a 1-1.5 inch loss. The process of fat removal continues for up to 7 days after each treatment so it isn’t unusual to see a further decrease a day or two after your initial treatment. Results may vary with different tissue structures, treatment areas, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
Is the fat reduction permanent?
Yes, the fat cells are fractured, broken down and the cells are drained away through the liver and passed as waste from the body. Although, depending on diet and exercise weight gain can still occur
How long is a treatment?
The service is tailored to the individual but generally, including consultation and measurement, you can expect to be with us between 30 minutes to an hour.
How long should I wait after childbirth to have cavitation treatments?
You must wait a least 3 months after normal birth of your baby or a minimum of 6 months after C section. It is best to get approval
What would happen if I had cavitation during my period?
Ultrasound increases blood flow and you would feel uncomfortable.
Is cavitation safe if a woman has a fitted contraception coil?
If you have a metal coil it's best not to treat the tummy area, new plastic coil is fine.
Can I have more than two areas treated in one day?
Following the treatment, the body has to work to remove the excess fat that is now passing through the lymphatic system to the liver. For this reason, treating more than 2 areas is not advisable. We follow the rule of no more than 60 minutes of Ultrasonic Cavitation within 72 hours.
What if I don’t see results straight away?
It is important to remember that everyone is different and your body will work according to your unique metabolism. You will see a reduction during a course of treatments which is why we recommend a course of 6 or better 12 treatments to get great results.Further treatments may be needed to attain your desired figure.
What can I do at home to help with treatments?
Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol after your service. Try and increase your heart rate by taking some exercise for the best results, even by doing some household chores, and avoid too many carbohydrates. Use our complimentary vibration platform to increase blood and lymphatic circulation.
What areas can be treated ?
RF is an effective way to improve skin tightness and elasticity, reduce wrinkles and cellulite, boosting the overall condition on areas of the body such as the face, chin, upper arm, abdomen, thighs, bra line, or buttocks.
What is the difference between Cavitation, cool sculpting and liposuction?
Ultrasonic Cavitation uses ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells in specific treatment areas.
Ultrasonic cavitation costs less, making it a better option for people on a tighter budget.
Cavitation is more of a body shaping treatment that helps eliminate fat cells.
Ultrasonic Cavitation has a similar result as liposuction. It removes cellulite and excess fat, but without any pain, discomfort.
With the cool sculpting cold temperatures are used to freeze and eliminate the fat cells, there can be a little discomfort because of the cold temperature. Some may feel different sensations such as cramping, stinging, itching, bruising, or tenderness.
How is the fat eliminated?
The ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, it ruptures the fat cell membrane, thereby releasing fat content, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the sweat gland, liver, and lymphatic system which eventually eliminates through urine.
