Things to review before booking

Important Information

We ask that all new clients arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment to fill out intake forms. Intake forms will go over your medical condition to ensure you are a candidate to receive our services. All services must be booked at least 4 hours in advance. 



If you currently have an auto-immune disease, blood clots, a recent cancer diagnosis (within the past 5 years), or diabetes, you are not a candidate for noninvasive body contouring. If you have had a recent surgery, we recommend waiting a minimum of 12 weeks before you begin body contouring, unless you've had liposuction or are cleared by your medical professional. Your technician will review your current medical condition with you prior to treatment to make sure our body contouring service is the right treatment for you.

We will need a valid drivers license or id to render services to all clients.

Please wear comfortable clothes, drink plenty of water (at least one liter) before your session, and fast for one hour. Please be prepared to have at least a 10 minute vibration session after your procedure.

What is Ultrasound Cavitatiion

Ultrasound Cavitation & Body Contouring is an aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge ultrasonic- cavitation technology. It disrupts the membrane around fat cells allowing the fatty substance inside to be naturally drained by the body’s own filtration system. The treatment can be followed by a lymphatic drainage with Pressotherapy which is very effective at eliminating liquids.

How it works?

The ultrasound-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 happens to the released fat?

After disruption and emulsification of the fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food

What is the treatment like?

The cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment. It starts with circumference measurement of the target body area and continues with use ultrasonic pads or some time applicator over the treatment site. The duration of treatment session normally takes around 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer

Is Ultrasonic Body Shaping a safe treatment?

Yes, the therapist will complete a medical questionnaire with you to make sure it is safe for you to undergo this kind of treatment. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative course) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions.

Is Ultrasonic Cavitation painful?

No, cavitation is a completely painless treatment.


Can these treatments be performed on male and females?

Yes, of course.

Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?

All of those areas with localized fat and cellulite: thighs, abdomen, buttocks, hip flanks, arms and legs.

Is it possible to lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation is NOT a method to lose weight but rather to shape the body. The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won’t go away with diet and exercise and to improve the appearance of cellulite.

Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Ultrasonic Cavitation?

We recommend a low calorie diet and to drink at least 1.0-1.5 liters of water before and after the session. After the session we recommend to do a small amount of cardio (brisk walk/jog). Drinking water and half an hour of cardio is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.

What are the side effects of Ultrasound Fat Cavitation?

Possible risks and side effects include local pain, erythemia, edema, itching, sensitivity to touch, urticaria, purpura or ecchymosis, hematoma, allergic contact dermatitis to the glycerin oil or acoustic contact gel, bruise, blister, burn hyper- and hypo-pigmentation.  Skin trauma is rare, however the area treated may retain warmth for a few hours afterwards. It is not uncommon for stool movements to be oily in the days that follow, or for urine to have an unusual smell as excess waste leaves. You can go about your normal activities right away after treatment. You may continue to experience a residual buzzing or ringing sound in your ears for up to 24 hours. Also, it is absolutely vital to keep water intake high during the days following treatment to help flush your system. Remember all side effects are transient and mild, however in the event of adverse side effects the treating personnel must be informed and a physician consult may be necessary.

What might prevent me having an Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment?

  • Cancer: Cancer cells travel via the lymphatic system, as does waste produced by Ultrasound Cavitation. A treatment presents an unacceptable risk of helping to move cancer cells. 
  • Cold or flu symptoms or fever: Ultrasound Cavitation releases toxins from the body via the lymphatic system, and treatments can exacerbate flu symptoms which also leave the body the same way.
  • Swollen lymph nodes: Treatments cannot be performed in areas where lymph nodes are swollen, infected, or not draining properly.
  • Oedema: Oedema or localized swelling of limbs indicates poor lymphatic flow. Treatments are not designed to alleviate oedema and may in fact exacerbate the condition.
  • Active Infections & Immunosuppression: These factors compromise the healing ability of the body, and Ultrasound Cavitation should not be attempted until the infection or deficiency is cleared.
  • Liver, Kidney, or Heart Disease: Compromises the ability of the body to recover from treatments. Severe hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, or poor circulation of blood and lymph.
  • Pregnancy: Sound waves generated by the treatment will very likely harm an unborn child’s hearing and may also result in compromising its immune system.
  • Breastfeeding: As mother’s milk draws nutrients from the body, there is an unacceptable degree of risk that toxins may pass into the milk and therefore be ingested by a nursing child.
  • Lymph nodes and joints cannot be treated with cavitation.
  • The face and neck cannot be treated with cavitation however RF can be.
  • Menstruation: During a period, the abdomen cannot be treated however other areas can be.
  • Metallic Implants: People who have metal implanted anywhere in their bodies, such as bone pins or pace makers cannot receive a treatment.
  • Skin allergies or inflammation: Areas with obvious signs of inflammation cannot be treated.
  • Minors: Due to the changing hormonal and fat deposits in the growing body during puberty, we do not treat clients under 18 years of age with Ultrasound Cavitation or Radio Frequency.

What after-care will optimize my results from an Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment?

Essentially, Ultrasound Fat Cavitation is designed to destabilize and break down fat into carbohydrates and waste material. If not followed by exercise and plenty of water, the destabilized fat will reform and resettle. Think of the process in simple terms. Fat and sound waves. If you put a tub of butter in the microwave and heat it, the butter destabilizes into liquid. If you leave it to sit however, it solidifies again. The same applies to this treatment, and that’s why cardiovascular exercise and water are vital. Cardio afterwards serves two purposes; to burn off the released carbohydrates, and to encourage the contraction and expansion of lymphatic vessels to channel out waste. Meanwhile, the water acts to thin that waste and to hasten its removal from the body through the urine.

Realistic Treatment Expectations

  • There will be improvement in thigh circumference and in the appearance of cellulite appearance. However do not expect complete elimination of cellulite. Client responses also vary.
  • The degree of response to Noninvasive Liposuction/ Radio Frequency treatment and the number of sessions required will vary among patients. Outcomes will depend on the clinical and physiological conditions at the start of the treatment regimen. Some clients will respond better than others.
  • The treatment results are temporary. Maintenance sessions a recommended one every 3-6 months to sustain results.
  • A healthy diet and lifestyle is essential to but not required. Weight gain will negatively impact your results so its key to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime.
  • Non-ablative gradual improvement of skin texture/laxity without downtown or risk factors, more commonly associated with laser skin resurfacing.
  • Superficial acne scarring and enlarged pores may show some improvement by building new collagen in the dermal areas.
