Fat Cavitation / RF
Fat Reduction, Skin Tightening, Body Sculpting
Ultrasonic Cavitation for Localised Fat Reduction
Fat cavitation is a pain-free, comfortable body sculpting procedure with no anaesthesia, no scars, no discomfort, no down-time and presents a risk-free alternative to liposuction.
Fat cavitation is the process of breaking up adipose tissue through sound energy. It represents an excellent add-on for the treatment of stubborn fat deposits that never seem to disappear no matter your diet or how hard you work out. The most problematic body areas are the abdomen, love handles, thighs, buttocks, inner knees, upper arms and male breasts.
It is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field creates bubbles in the liquid which gradually grow and implode at a certain size. The energy in the form of heat and pressure waves are released. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. The ultrasonic cavitation emulsifies the fat and then converts it into a liquid which is disposed through the lymphatic and urinary system.
Radio frequency (RF) is an advanced technology that safely heats the collagen in the skin, causing skin tightening and skin firming. When sufficient energy is delivered, the collagen will contract, providing an immediate change in skin appearance, the treatment also triggers a second process of new collagen production. A result of collagen remodelling is tighter and younger looking skin.
Benefits of Treatment
- Reduces and prevents the appearance of cellulite
- Fat reduction
- Skin tightening and body contouring
- Facial firming
During the treatment, deep skin layers are gradually heated while the skin surface remains around 40° C . Your skin temperature will be constantly monitored. It is recommended to have the treatment performed after one hour of eating, and not during digestion. It is also recommended to increase water intake to 2L per day, before and after treatments.
What will I feel during the treatment?
Most clients consider the procedure painless and comfortable. However, you may experience a little warmth during the treatment. If you feel a burning sensation, immediately tell the clinician so they can make the treatment comfortable again.
Are there any side effects?
There is a slight possibility of mild side effects such as redness, excessive thirst and nausea immediately after the treatment. This can be resolved by drinking water. Bruising may appear after treatments, but will fade after 3 – 5 days.
What are the expected instant fat loss treatment results?
Fat cavitation yields immediate and long-lasting results. Most clients experience 2 – 3cm of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each treatment. Results may vary depending on treatment area, age, metabolism, medications and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain results.
In which areas is fat cavitation more effective?
All parts of the body where localised adiposity is located, therefore legs, abdomen and the buttocks are the most appropriate but there are no real limitations regarding body areas.
How much time should pass between two sessions?
The body eliminates fat in 72 hours, so between two sessions, 4 days should pass.
How many sessions of fat cavitation are required?
We recommend between 8 – 12 sessions for best results. Results can be seen from the third session.
