Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasonic cavitation, or ultrasound cavitation, is a cosmetic procedure that’s used to break apart fat deposits in your body. 

Cavitation is a method of liposuction that destroys fat cells by using low frequency sound waves. Once the fat cell is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, noninvasive machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface. The pressure eventually causes the fat cells to liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream.

Because there is no surgery and no anaesthesia, there is no hospital stay, no time off from work and no recovery time. Clients see immediate results and will continue to see results in the reduction of fat up to 72 hours following the treatment. The most common problem areas are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles, male chest, upper arms, inner thighs and the chin area. It is especially effective in the removal of cellulite. Cavitation is the perfect treatment for people who want to contour their body and regain their confidence and figure. Most clients see an immediate change in their appearance after the first session, with optimum results after 6 to 12 sessions.

All about Ultrasonic cavitation

How does it work?

Cavitation is a method of liposuction. Cavitation destroys fat cells by using low frequency sound waves. Once the fat cell is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while glycerol is used as energy.

Are the results similar to liposuction?

Yes, but because the procedures are non-invasive and work with your body’s natural elimination and detoxification processes, results are not as immediate as surgical liposuction. Fat is removed gently without harming the vascular system and without post-operative symptoms such as scarring and pain.

How is it possible to remove solid fat through the lymphatic system?

The Ultrasound Cavitation Non-Surgical “Liposuction” emulsifies fat and coverts solid fat into a liquid substance that is easy to remove through the lymphatic and urinary systems. Some of the melted fat will be used for energy and the rest will be excreted through the urine that is why drinking water is essential. If you do not drink adequate water before and after each treatment, it will be harder for your system to remove the fat. You may notice an increase in urination after each session.

Is ultrasonic cavitation painful?

No, most clients consider the procedure painless and comfortable. During the treatment you will feel a soothing heat in the targeted area. A little “blushing” or reddening may occasionally appear but it does not cause pain. The heat generated is perfectly tolerable. There may be a slight discomfort due to the specific low frequency ultrasound noise experienced, but it poses no harm and disappears as soon as you are not in contact with the transducer. The treatment can be compared to the feeling of finishing an intense workout.

Is the treatment safe?

Yes. It’s a non-surgical procedure, without anaesthesia, non-invasive and allows you to carry on with your social life before and after the sessions.

Is it possible to lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?

Because you are reducing fat deposits you may experience some loss in weight but Ultrasound Cavitation Non-Surgical “Liposuction” itself is not a weight loss treatment. It is particularly indicated to reduce adipose fat and cellulite, which will reduce circumference. Diet suggestions will be recommended to follow throughout your treatment program and will enhance the elimination of fat deposits and the loss of weight.

Am I a good candidate for ultrasonic cavitation?

It is ideal for people who are dissatisfied with certain areas of fatty deposits but do not want to undergo any invasive surgical treatment like liposuction. A good candidate is someone looking for fat removal from a specific area. The treatment does not necessarily result in overall weight loss, but results in improved shape & contour and size reduction in the treatment area. If you are currently following a healthy diet or a good weight loss plan, results will be more significant and weight loss will more likely occur.

Great results can be obtained for those who have up to 25 – 30 pounds or less to lose. Cavitation is ideal for those who have tried to shift the stubborn fatty bulges with diet or exercise and are aiming for a smoother and more balanced shape. Ultrasound Cavitation and RF body contouring is not a treatment for morbid obesity nor is it a weight loss cure. If a significant amount of surplus fat exists, we recommend successfully dieting before beginning the treatment program. A consultation will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedures.

What if I have lost weight and just need some lifting and tightening?

At your initial consultation, it will be determined what the best course of action is for your needs. You may benefit from contouring, tightening and lifting using Radio Frequency therapies and may not need Cavitation at all. Don't forget if you book any procedure here at Aura Aesthetics, you will be entitled to a 'Half price' radio frequency treatment!! Amazing value!!

In which areas are ultrasonic cavitation more effective?

In all parts of the body where localized adiposity resides; therefore legs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate sites but there’s no real limitation regarding body areas. which areas are cavitation more effective?

How long will it take to recover from ultrasonic cavitation?

You are able to return to your normal activities immediately. It is performed as a walk in, walk out treatment and there is no lengthy recovery period as with surgical fat removal. Treatment is generally considered by most people to be painless, with no pain or discomfort post-treatment. A mild tingling and/or warm sensation have been reported during treatment. There are very few documented side effects to date, although bruising is considered to be rare and if it occurs will be very mild, some redness and mild swelling may be noticed for a very short time post-treatment.

How much time should I pass between sessions?

It is best to schedule your appointments 3 days apart. It is essential to allow your body enough time to metabolize and excrete fats and waste materials after each session. Maintenance treatments are recommended with the first four taking place one month apart and then once every four months after that to maintain your results. Your therapist will design an optimal treatment schedule for you.

When will I see results?

Most clients experience a reduction in circumference after the first session, with increasing results after each visit but especially after the third treatment and onward. The results may vary from person to person with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet, adequate water intake and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain your results.

Results will continue to improve for several weeks following the last treatment session. You will continue to metabolize fat for up to twelve weeks, which means that, as most people do not make new fat cells in later life, the loss can be permanent. This procedure will also leave you with firmer, smoother looking skin than before, due to the inclusion of Radio Frequency Therapy, which encourages the fibroblasts within the skin to produce collagen.

Can I drink alcohol?

To achieve the best results, it is recommended to refrain from any alcohol consumption for 2 – 3 days following your treatments. Alcohol can prevent your liver from working to remove fats as it will make alcohol metabolism its priority before fat removal and could hinder your results. Alcohol is treated like sugar and your body will convert it into FAT!

Is there any after treatment care?

It is strongly recommended to avoid carbohydrates (including alcohol) for 24 hours post treatment, giving the body time to eliminate toxins and waste from the body. It is important to drink plenty of water to aid this process as well. Exercise is highly recommended to stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems to remove toxins released during a treatment. 

What results can I achieve?

An average of 2-3cm total reduction in circumference can be achieved after a single treatment in most clients. Multiple treatments result in incremental circumference reduction and high client satisfaction in most individuals. Results are long lasting so long as you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. The fat cells are eliminated during a course of treatments, thereby reducing the body’s ability to increase in size. However a diet and lifestyle of poor food choices and indulgence will lead to further weight gain, so it is important to commit to a healthy diet and lifestyle to get the best long term benefits from your treatments.

Are the results of cavitation similar to those with surgical liposuction?

Yes, because the Cavitation destroys the fat cells (which do not replenish) in the treated area with no damage to the vascular system.

What happens to the fat?

Once the fat has been released by the cells it is dispersed into the fluid between the cells then transported to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from a Cavitation treatment and fat originating from consumed foods. Both are processed by the body’s natural mechanisms and converted to bile. This is excreted from the body naturally via the urine and stools.
