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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
No, cavitation is a completely painless treatment.
Yes, of course.
All of those areas with localized fat and cellulite: thighs, abdomen, buttocks, hip flanks, arms and legs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
