What is Ultrasound Cavitation
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leaing edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. When the treatment of ultrasound cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective at eliminating liquids. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 35 – 40 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. At least 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the waste. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 7 and 10.
How does fat cavitation work?
A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed handpiece to your skin. The hand piece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression- expansion impulses that travel in a circular motion. This motion then causes an infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favour emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called “cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.
What can be treated with the ultrasound cavitation system?
GBG trained therapists offer cost effective and professional treatments including:
- Cellulite and fat reduction
- Body Contouring
- Skin tightening and fat melting (where radio-frequency is combined)
Who is suitable for ultrasound and RF treatments?
- Most people are safe to have the treatments
- Our trained therapist should be able to determine your suitability
- Consult your Doctor if you are not sure
- People with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemaker carriers and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoud undergoing the procedure
Is ultrasound cavitation painful?
No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable.
Is ultrasound cavitation a safe treatment?
Yes, it is a nonsurgical procedure without anaesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.
